Kill Switch

Sending him to prison was the worst idea.

It mattered little that he committed the crime or that I wished he was dead.

I may have thought that I would be long gone by the time that he got out, or perhaps he will have cooled off in jail. I was counting on the fact that he wouldn’t be the creature that he was, but I was wrong.

Three years can be such a short time when you it into perspective.

He is not calm. He simply hasn’t cooled off. In fact, prison only gave him enough time to scheme.

Although I expected his vengeance, I simply didn’t see this coming.

He just doesn’t want to make me hurt, he wants to make everything hurt.
