It's Finally Over

I was in an abusive relationship for a year and a half.  I couldn't talk to any of my friends or family, I'd go to work with bruises, I cried almost every day, I was treated like a slave.  My life started to change when the guy I had a huge crush on all through high school got out of jail.  I ran into him at the library and we started hanging out when my boyfriend was at work.  My brother had tried to convince me to go live with him before and I finally accepted after my old crush *Rafael* showed me that the rest of the world wasn't as miserable as how I was living.  When my brother was to arrive the next morning I locked myself into my family's old, empty house which I still had a key to.  I asked *Rafael* to stay with me at the house in case my ex-even-though-he-doesn't-know-he's-an-ex-yet figured out where I was.  Well, we ended up sleeping together and now, 4 months later, we're planning on getting married.  But now I'm very far away from him.  He's the love of my life and I can't imagine anything more blissful than being his wife.  Dealing with this long distance **** sucks so much, though.  We talk on the phone every day, but it's still miserable without him.
