NINE YEARS FROM NOW…
‘Don’t You Want Me’ – Felix
11. IF HE’S GOING BALD…
PRAGUE-FACE DID ME A FAVOUR. I HAVE TO LAUGH NOW, BECAUSE IT’LL NEVER WORK BETWEEN THEM. BUT THAT’S COOL, BECAUSE I NO LONGER WANT HER BACK – AND I VOW THAT I SHALL NEVER WANT HER BACK. SHE HAS NO RESPECT FOR ME AND SHE’S DISHONEST, A LIAR.
‘I WILL ALWAYS HURT YOU.’
WELL, SHE WAS HONEST ABOUT THAT MUCH. POTENTIALLY. BUT NO, SHE CAN’T HURT ME ANY MORE. BUT ONE DAY, IF THEY MOVE TO ENGLAND, SAY, SHE WILL GET BORED OF HIM. HER USE FOR HIM WILL BE FINISHED. OR HE WILL TIRE OF HER ‘SPONGEING’ OFF HIM. SHE’LL BE LONELY ONE DAY, BUT I’M OUT OF IT. WELL OUT OF IT. I CAN’T BELIEVE I GOT SUCKERED BY SUCH A SCHEMING, RESENTFUL PERSON. LILITH SUCKED ME DRY. BUT NOW I HAVE RETURNED. I CARE FOR HER, BUT I’M NO LONGER THE FOOL SHE MADE ME. LET THIS BE MY LAST WORD ON HER AND HIM.
BUT ONE MUST WONDER: IF HE’S GOING BALD, WILL THIS ENHANCE OR COMPROMISE HIS SKILLS WHEN IT COMES TO BUTTING HER HEAD OPEN SOME DAY SOON?
SHE TURNED HER BACK ON ME, AND NOW I MUST TURN THAT TO MY ADVANTAGE AND FIND MY TRUE FUTURE. HOW MUCH OF A FOOL WAS I, ALL THOSE YEARS? SHE’LL NEVER KNOW HOW WARY I AM OF HER. SILLY GIRL. SHE ABUSED ME, ACCUSED ME, MADE ALL THE WRONG CHOICES. WHAT DOES SHE EXPECT FROM ME? ADMIRATION? RESPECT? ER… NO WAY.
BUT I STILL CARE! ABOUT HER. ALTHOUGH I’D LOVE HIM TO DIE. GOD, I SUCK! NO. I BITE.
BUT ONE DAY SHE’LL REALLY NEED ME.
I’D SO MUCH RATHER BE ME THAN THEM.
I THANK THE GODS I ESCAPED.
THE PAIN HAS GONE. THIS FIVE YEARS IS NOW OVER.
