Letters on the Beach Pt. 1
Ariane walked along the beach with a numbness running through her veins. She had been walking for two hours deciding on her next move. She was beautiful with long golden hair and big brown doe eyes and the sweetest smile that made her dimples pop out on each cheek. She had a naturally curvy hourglass figure that had an air of sensuality as she walked. Men loved her and women were jealous of her. She was very lonely though, and not trusting of people. She wasn’t like that before she met David though. David brought her to this miserable place of separation from herself and others .
She was walking on the beach planning her escape from him. She was scared for many reasons. One of them being that she would miss him as much as he hurt her she still cared about him. She felt like she wasted what seemed to be forever in this miserable relationship. Six years destroyed by a man who didn’t really love her, but was only using her for sex and to boost his ego. She gave up everything for him and she couldn’t understand why he didn’t feel the same way about her. She ended up feeling lonely and drained, just an empty shell of who she used to be . As if he just stole her spirit away in his twisted and psychotic dance and never gave it back to her again. He had used her for her beauty and her money, and the way she made him feel and it left her feeling worthless. It wasn’t always that way though.
When they first met he had promised her the world. Everything you can think of he told her he would give to her and she would be his queen. That didn’t last long and she ended up not getting anything that he told her he would give her. He lied and manipulated her until she believed him. She only started believing him when she actually fell in love with him. Then she was blinded by his sweet talking charm. She loved the way he would put love notes in her pockets when she least expected it and the way he looked soulfully into her eyes when they made love. At least she believed that he looked at her that way.
She would have done anything for that man. Why couldn’t he see that? He would ridicule her and degrade her after awhile of being together. Making her feel as if it was her fault that he was so cruel. She did make some mistakes which made her feel guilty and made her believe that she deserved his anger towards her.
When they first met, she didn’t want to be with him. She used every excuse in the book not to be. She was heartbroken from her last relationship with Jack and decided that she was not going to love anyone for a long time. Love in her mind didn’t exist anymore. She was so in love with Jack that it drove her crazy. After the five years they spent together he disappeared on her and she couldn’t deal with it. She missed him terribly and searched for him until she was too tired to search anymore. Finally, a year after her wait she ran into one of his friends Chuck who had nothing good to say about him. He said Jack was a cheater and using women to get what he wants. That he did have good things to say about her, but they were from so long ago.
