Soon, it was time for Torie to start getting ready. Once she was in her room, she curled her hair into small curls, pull some back and bobby pinning them. She applied make up and made sure it still look natural. Then she slipped on the dress, sweater, and shoes. She was ready with about 20 minutes to spare.
She took one last look in the mirror and put on her brave face. She knew that if she showed one ounce of fear, Alex would have her. She took a deep breath, really not wanting to leave the room, but soon she was walking down the stairs, ready to wait for Alex.
Being single doesn't make you weak, it means that you are strong enough to be on your own; Being alone could be a good thing, because there is no drama involved in your life, no pain, and free to do what ever you want. Life is too short to be chasing those who aren't even worth fighting for, you are worth more than that.
