So now you know, if you didnt already, it was just bad timing.
A year later my next girlfriend,
Vicky, took on the role I played in this tale, the battered fool, and
I took on Heathers sociopath in search of a convenient victim.
It wouldnt surprise me to hear that Vicky then took on the role
in her next relationship, an endless series of falling dominoes.
It hit me driving down the
road one day - she and I had more in common than I was ever willing to
admit. All of the weaknesses I was struggling with I had seen in her.
My fear of commitment, my intimacy phobia, my fascination with only the
physical side of sex, my terror of opening up, my inability to communicate
- they were all there in her. And I wanted to like that.
"My two natures had memory
in common, but all other faculties were most unequally shared between
them. Jekyll (who was composite) now with the most sensitive apprehensions,
now with a greedy gusto, projected and shared in the pleasures and adventures
of Hyde; but Hyde was indifferent to Jekyll, or but remembered him as
the mountain bandit remembers the cavern in which he conceals himself
So she ran as
far away as she could.
