To be with someone you love is like fire. Hot and bright. But for her, it was pain and suffering. She knew that this wasn't the way to feel. She had felt his fury many times before, but he always apologized. She always took him back because she thought he wouldn't hurt her again. She was wrong, for she had seen the crimson vision in his eyes. And yet, when she left, she still missed him. She missed the feeling of being loved. But, what she didn't know was that the man of her dreams was somewhere waiting.
