I knew Mary Beth was older than me. I had known that all along, from my dreams, from the picture, from what little I had learned from Julie and from what I had learned about Mary Beth since arriving in Texas. I had been foolish to think she was the one with the experience, wondering what in the world she would ever see in someone as young as me. Now I knew while she had life experiences that no one should ever have to live through, I was the experienced one as far as relationships were concerned. I was going to have to be the one in the driver’s seat where that was concerned, that was evident.
I don’t know what I expected Mary Beth to tell me today. Even though I feared the worst, what I feared was something that was going to end in her telling me she wasn’t interested and that she was sending me away. I would have taken that ten times over and would have lost her forever if it meant she never would have had to go through what she did. I had never felt such rage and anger and sickness over the vile things Mike had done to her. I wanted to kill him. I wanted in that moment to use every ounce of strength in the body I’d worked so hard to build, find Mike, and rip him to pieces. It hurt me in places I didn’t know existed to know that my Mary Beth had been hurt in such ways.
