A Heart Torn in Two

Morgan's voice is beautiful. I've never heard anything like it, it's exquisite. She's beautiful too, uncomparably. I've never seen anything more lovely. But it's not just her face that's pretty. She's such a wonderful person, she's brave, loyal and really caring. Strange how shy she is, if I were her I'd be proud to be who I was. I hate to say it, but I feel a connection to her, like there's a part of me inside her. I think I'm in love.

Oh no.

Oh no no no no no.

I can't be in love, I can't. Not me, not now, this is impossible. No, this is catastrophic. I can't fall in love, I have a job to do. I can't waste my time mooning over her when I can't even stay in one place for more than a year. They'd find me otherwise. I never asked to be what I am, but I have no choice. This is one family tradition that can never be broken. They'll force me if I won't do it willingly.

But how can I just leave her? I can't, it would kill me. I don't just want to be with Morgan, I need to be with her. I'd die if I'm not with her, this bond is so strong.

No, I can't. It would only put her in danger. If they ever found out they'd hurt her to get to me. They'd use her to get what they wanted. If I really love her I'll have to let her go.

Losing her would kill me!

Keeping her will kill us both.

How can I leave her now? I can't just run off without an explanation, that wouldn't do any of us any good.

I have to, otherwise I'll get attatched. Then it would only hurt more.

But I have to go. There's no way out of it.

Yes there is, we could hide together, somewhere they'd never find us.

They'd always find us. Wherever we run, wherever we hide they'd find us. Then we'd both pay. I couldn't bear to see Morgan hurt, not ever.

Go or stay, stay or go. Whichever option I choose, something in me will die.

The End
