You have always been the villain.
Even when we were kids,
I knew it then.
I knew it well.
But this time was supposed to be different, No?
This time you were supposed to change.
My heart really wanted you to be something else.
A different character,
Something worthy of this second chance.
Not Prince Charming.
Knight in shining armor?
I wasn’t that optimistic.
I wasn’t expecting anything close.
I just wanted you to be different,
Or at least try.
But you weren’t different.
And I finally learned.
A villain would always be a villain.
No matter how many chances you gave them,
No matter how many versions of the fairy tale you told.
THEY DO NOT CHANGE!
It did not matter what new timeline I placed him in.
He would not change…
So after all these years I finally closed my tear-stained storybook.
Filled with all the fairy tales of us that ended the same way.
I was done crying.
There were no more stories about the Villain I cared to tell.
