Bachelor #2

by Stephanie Bee

Last night it happened again. His hands around my neck while I knock over the framed photo of my boyfriend. What do I say about it? I do it because I'm angry. I do it because I want to be held. I do it because he's a perfect stranger and for some reason I still don't feel afraid.

You're too good of a writer to keep playing with fire like that. Please be careful. (Though I suppose if you didn't play with fire, you wouldn't be such an authentic writer...)

Life can be so contradictory.

I'm afraid for you, does that count?

Great story. Hope it is just a character.
