Excerpt: Chapter 6: Unrest

I am beside myself with rage. 

You profess to know me so well, to be my “soul”, yet you don’t seem to know me at all. I lived a good life. I had an idyllic childhood, a wonderful family, a career that I loved. Friends. Everything. If I am so flawed as a human being, how is it possible that I had so much happiness in my life?

“I would never say you were flawed. Because you weren’t and aren’t. But there is one big thing noticeably absent from the curriculum vitae you just cited. And you haven’t hit on it yet. And until you do, we continue this dance because there is no resolution without it.”

I loathe you.

“Guess what? I don’t care. Let’s talk about Max."

My fury is unabated and off the scale.

No. We will NOT talk about Max. Not now, not ever. You are attempting to sully everything I have held dear, and I will not allow you to use Max against me.

“Use Max against you? That’s rich. Projecting much?”

I feel an unreasonable calm from head to toe. It is almost as though I have been pushed through a vortex that has stripped all emotion from me. I am not only calm, my anger is lethal.

You have made it clear that your survival depends on me and my choices. I am making a choice right now. You will never, ever mention Max to me again or I will shut this, whatever “this” is, down right now. Are we clear?
