(true story)


He primed me right from the start!

From our very first meeting.

Looking back now that he’s finally gone I can see it all so clearly.

The very first time I ever met him was in a bar where I’d agreed to meet some friends of mine. They weren’t there when I arrived but he, his wife and his friend were. I’d met his wife previously so it was easier to join them than wait alone.

A while later his wife and friend got up to dance together. My friends arrived and also started dancing.

And he asked me to dance. I happily agreed as I love dancing and will dance whenever I get the opportunity.

The weird thing was that his wife, his friend and my friends all started laughing at us on the dance floor.

Wow, that made me feel really self-conscious till my friends told me that they were laughing at him dancing.

Because apparently, he NEVER danced. He later confirmed that was true.

Over the next few weeks we all went out as a group with other people along as well. It was fun. I got to know him better.

We became good friends really quickly. Him and me.

He was always asking what I needed help with at home. Then one day, there was something that I didn’t know how to fix at home. He and his wife arrived and he fixed it.

That was the beginning of the end!

He knew where I lived! And he started arriving for cups of tea. On his own.

I never thought anything of it. We were good friends. As far as I was concerned that was all we were and all we ever were going to be.

He had other plans right from the start!

He’s a PREDATOR and he’d decided I was to be his next PREY!
