Welcome to Sarah’s Saturday Mix.
Since it is her first ‘Opposing Forces’ challenge, the words this week are:
– first and last
– beginning and end
I could hear the sirens and knew they would be coming for me, but it didn’t matter now.
In the beginning, I had just accepted it for how it was. No underlying reasoning, just a fact of my life that was meant to be and nothing I could do about it.
For years I had been the underdog, the one sitting in the shadows, afraid to open my mouth for fear of ridicule, or worse.
Today was the first time I’d stood up for myself, and the look on his face was one of disbelief as I plunged the knife deep into his vicious heart.
Oh yeah, today was the last time he’d get the better of me, as I’d put an end to his cruelty once and for all.
