Deep in the woods is the only place I ever wanted to go. The big sky, the fresh air and the silence. Oh, the silence. I never knew how much the silence could hurt my ears until I got out here to my new home. My nearest neighbor is a mile away at least and I could do whatever I want. My electricity worked most of the time, my toilet flushed most of the time and I had enough food to last for at least two weeks. I hoped it would be enough time to plan ye next move and stay out of anyone’s business everyone will slowly learn not to ask any questions.
A week into the game I was finally able to relax a little, but when a twig snapped outside, I froze. Was he back? Was he here? How had he found me? What kind of terrible plans and ideas had I had of even marrying him? Everyone knew, even I knew in the back of my head and my heart that I should not have said yes. But here I was, making my escape. Escape from him. Escape from city life. Escape from the life I never wanted. I just hoped it was a deer or a fox outside the small cottage, but I was too scared to look. Too scared to maybe see his face. Before I got up the courage to look, someone was banging on the window above my bed.
