We're all fools for love. Love is blind. Love makes the world go round.
So many cliches... Yet none of them prepare you for when the one you love sticks a knife in your heart and walks away. She never even looked back. Whatever she had drugged me with left me paralysed as I listened to her tell me exactly how she had betrayed me. How she had lied. Double crossed me.
When I woke again, I knew instinctively I was in the game. Once I had mourned for my love and the life she had cost me, rage suffused every fibre of my being. I would make her feel this pain. I would have given her the universe if she had asked and she had shown me that I was worth nothing. What was worse, I discovered she had spread her poison through my family and closest friends, destroying their lives. Some of them may be in the game, but I hadn't come across them and I avoided checking tables for them. I knew my rank-88. Thats all I needed for now. I was looking for number one. Hunting. I wanted out, I wanted revenge and I wanted a life that would be free from anything like this nightmare again.
I wandered the streets of some city, not really paying attention. I turned down an alley and was faced with a lone guy. Some instinct told me he was in the game.
"Aw hell." I muttered. "Third time this week."
