Before Sam, I was the most boring, awkward and level-headed person you've ever met. I was my best friend's side-kick, the supporting actress to another person's life. And I was OK like that.
I was lonely.
But I was OK.
Then I met Sam. Our eyes locked and BANG my heart started beating. As my blood warmed and pumped around my body, everything changed. Before that moment, I had been as dead inside as the stiffs I applied make-up to in the mortuary. Now I was alive, experiencing things for the first time, enamoured with a man I knew to be a criminal.
Instead of running and remaining the good Catholic girl I was, I married him.
Now I have to live with the consequences of that decision.
