Secrets You Should Keep... If You.re Making a Fresh Start...๐Ÿ˜ฎโ—

Debra sat on the polished granite, leaned her elbows on her knees then propped her chin between her hands. That pile of red roses had shrivelled and browned, and clumps of black earth were dangerously close to staining the white laces that dangled from her runners. The wind whispered her secret in a hushed chorus as it rustled the leaves of the soaring maples that had assembled. Robert was gone โ€” and she felt nothing.

Debra looked up to watch a large crow fly into the distance, perhaps to escape the rain which had begun to fall. It was a refreshing summer shower she welcomed. She never noticed the approaching footsteps until they were upon her.

"Enjoying the moment?" Detective John's voice boomed between the fat water droplets that pattered.

"Yes... I mean, no. I'm leaving for New Hampshire tomorrow to visit my sister. I was saying goodbye," Debra stammered.

John opened his umbrella and welcomed her. Debra obliged and huddled under the canopy he'd provided; yet... she felt uncomfortable as he spoke.

"It's an absolute coincidence that Robert plunged where he did. That trail you were jogging has few danger spots; he tumbled in the only prohibited area โ€” it was marked and blocked by warning signs everywhere. You guys didn't see them as you ran?"

This question had become repetitive and irritated Debra.

"He was ahead of me, I've told you already."

"Yes, you have. I can't figure out how an experienced runner like Robert could have slipped from such an obvious path."

"I warned him not to go, but he wouldn't listen. He was stubborn."

John looked at Debra and nodded politely. "Walk you back to your car?"

They walked as the detective spoke again.

"I'll need your address in case anything else comes up."

"Sure, but you could have called me. Why are you here?" Debra asked, puzzled.

"The autopsy revealed something interesting. Robert died from his fall, but he was also high as a kite. Did you see him take anything that day, Rohypnol, Ecstasy perhaps?"

"I don't know if he took drugs. He never told me and I never noticed, and it's too late to ask him, isn't it?" She'd reached her car, drew the keys out of her pocket and impatiently waited for John's reply.

"That's true. We might never know, will we?"

Debra slipped into the seat, closed the door and listened to the calming pitter-patter of raindrops as they tapped on her roof. She watched as that detective walked away, knowing โ€” hoping โ€” she'd never see him again, then rested her forehead against the steering wheel, precisely as she'd done... two weeks ago.

A sharp of knuckles against glass startled her. It was Robert; she'd been thinking while parked in the driveway. He spoke to her in his usual belligerent tone.

"Hey! The rain has stopped. Are we going for a fucking run or not? Otherwise, I'm leaving without you."

"Uhm... Yes, of course. I'll get our water bottles from the fridge. Why don't we try that park by the lakeshore? It's got an impressive cliff to jog along," Debra replied, stepping out of her car.

The first time he beat her, Debra knew she'd have to find a fresh beginning, and that 'debut' was about to start. She was anxious to repay Robert for all his devoted fucked-up love.

20% of marriages have some sort of โ€” verbal or physical โ€” domestic violence. โ—

40% of abuse victims are male. Men are less likely to report any abuse. ๐Ÿค”

I visited with โ€”departed, โ€” relatives at the cemetery last weekend and that's what prompted this thought. It was quiet and spooky. Do you ever enter that place?
One can change one's style, no?
I mean, I used to wear suits and ties, now I'm WAY more casual. โ—โ—๐Ÿ˜Ž

True... verbal abuse isn't always as obvious, is it? And then there's the question โ€” how does one deal with it? ๐Ÿค”

That's true, and one I'd never like to experience. I believe respect, would prevent THAT occurrence, wouldn't you say? ๐Ÿค” โ—โ—๐Ÿ˜Ž

It certainly does.
I wonder if she had any other choices, or if society and the law, had failed her. ๐Ÿค”

I went to the cemetery last week and THAT'S the vibe I felt. Glad to know that you felt it as well.
That place with those monuments is a peaceful yet spooky place to spend any time โ€” do you ever pop in to see anyone residing there? ๐Ÿค”

You are right, there are different types of abuse that are often inflicted behind closed doors. I will never forget, sitting with my parents at the cottage watching the film, "Life With Billy". It's a Canadian film based on the true story of domestic abuse a woman experiences until she finally takes matters into her own hands. I looked at my parents and almost whispered, "That could be me someday". The conversation that ensued was gut-wrenching and cathartic. I was lucky to have the support of my parents to implement the best plan for my daughter and me. Not everyone is that fortunate. Note: of course, I would never have taken the actions that Jane Hurshman did.

I've never seen that movie, but I'll look into it.
The situation you describe sounds quite severe. I understand where you're coming from, but only because I've seen so many movies about domestic violence that I can somewhat relate to.
Glad to hear that you came out of your situation intact. It's a sad situation.
I think THIS topic was a bit too heavy for the audience on THESE pages, but it's something that captured my attention, especially with Covid creating so many captives behind closed doors.
Thanks for sharing. ๐ŸŒท๐Ÿ˜Ž
