The silence barely calms me as I sit at my desk with a pad of paper and a pen. Too much information has battered my brain lately, but the anger coursing through me, the betrayal, won’t leave. He says he’ll offer me vengeance. It sits heavy on my tongue, tasting sour one moment, and sweet the next. I shouldn’t want it. I shouldn’t crave it.
I have no words to write, nothing feels safe, nothing I want to acknowledge. I know that I should turn the other cheek. Offer forgiveness to those who have wronged me. My mother would push for it, but fuck it. She’s not here. She was cruelly taken away. The old Lio begs I drop this, walk away, don’t fall for the monster’s poisoned apple.
The new me? The one who has survived mind games, captivity, and betrayal? I want to make everyone who has dared cross me pay, starting with the person who should always have had my back.
Fuck it. The only thing I can hope for at the moment is that I don’t fall too far down the rabbit hole, that I keep some part of me. Until then, they won’t know what hit them. I’ll tease them, I’ll torment them, and I’ll fucking learn. I toss the pen on the table, standing up to get ready for bed. I catch a glimpse of myself in the mirror as I get into the shower. I send up a prayer to the universe that I don’t fall for silver promises on the way, that I won’t look at myself later on and regret it. For now, regret is the furthest thing from my mind.
Vengeance. One word. One meaning. So many possibilities.
