    I Feel So Alone.

    It started well over a year ago. When I accepted a waitressing position at the Tavern, I never expected it to lead to this. Hell, I was supposed to get married to the abusive man I'd been with since I was 17. He was all I knew. But then I saw you. I knew you were the bad-boy...

    I feel like I'm nothing without him,

    I miss him too much and I can't handle it. From today, he's spent 1 year in Jail and he also needs to stay longer. I'll be patient and wait as long as I'll have to though, because I love him more than anything else.
