She shifted away from his grasp and continued to walk away from him. 'Will you ever leave me alone?' she shouted back to him.
He called out to her, a bouquet of roses in hand, 'But baby, I thought you like me?'
She stopped in her tracks and spun around to face him. 'I said I dislike you. I don't like you.' She snapped at him, throwing her arms into the air in desperation to explain.
He stepped towards her with his hand extended. He smiled at her 'It's never too late to convert, my darling,' he explained.
She glared at him and said, 'There's so many things I want to do to you,' her voice in pure malice.
He raised his eyebrows at her comment and grinned, 'My love, you can do whatever you want to me.'
She narrowed her eyes at him and spun back around, 'I want to kill you!' she exclaimed as she started to walk away again.
He continued to follow her, 'You want to kiss me?' he innocently asked from behind her, smiling still.
She rolled her eyes and clenched her fist 'I want to hurt you!' she scowled.
He stepped quickly beside her and looked to her earnestly, 'You want to hug me?'
She raised her hand to the side of her face, blocking him from her side view, 'I want to strangle you!' she exasperated.
He walked in front of her while walking backwards with her pace, 'You want to snuggle me?' he grinned.
She stopped walking and placed her hand on her hip, glaring at him. 'I want to drown you,' she said in a nonchalant tone.
He stopped in front of her and grinned. 'You want to own me?' he replied in a sly tone.
'I want to burn you.'
'You want to yearn for me?'
'I want to dismember you.'
'You want to remember me?'
'Are you even listening to me?'
'Oh I've been listening to you.' He replaces his grin with a meaningful smile, 'You say you want to kill me but you mean to kiss me. You say you want to hurt but hug me you'd rather. You say you want to strangle me but snuggling appeals to you more. You say you want to drown me yet you wish to own me. You say you want to burn me but I know you yearn for me still. You say you want to dismember me but remember me you'll always.'
She stared at him and then sighed. She spoke back to him with her eyes closed 'I don't want to kiss you, hug you, snuggle you, own you, yearn for you nor remember you. Because I can't love you anymore, not after you killed me,..' her voice faltered at the metaphor and opened her eyes, yet she continued, 'Not after you hurt me deep inside. Not after you strangled me with your greed. Not after you drowned me with your lies. Not after you burnt me with your rage, and certainly not after you dismembered me from my heart and soul. I don't want to love you anymore, not ever again.' She looked into his eyes, making sure her words were heard firm and clear.
He stared at her stiff figure, her clenched fist, her pursed lips, her furrowed brows and her watery eyes. He realised that here was a girl who once loved him. Yet he changed her. She turned this once sweet and innocent girl to someone who distrusts everything about the world and this "love" it wishes to offer. Now, here was a girl he's changed forever. And it's not him who can change her back.
