Feral Life #3


Her name was Sadie. I called her Sadist for a joke. Her smile disintegrated.

That’s why I had a crush on her, her stunning smile. Be wrong to say I loved her, but she made me happy and laugh so I let myself fall. Sadie was awesome. Except when I called her Sadist. But the other girls laughed, so I said it again.

She flew at me, screaming shit about hate and pain, crying, punching, kicking, until suddenly she stopped, her fists bleeding, her face contorted. She screamed “I fucking hate myself!” and walked out, sobbing heavily.

I followed, uncertain.

    Love the dichotomy between the words Sadie and Sadist and the idea / description of a smile disintegrating. :-)

    Thank you, I'm glad you noticed/appreciated that, it took me a long time to get the right word there.
