A Dark Sapphic Novella
On the surface, I had perfected my disguise. I would stay home, take care of the house, and play the role of a doting wife. And although things weren’t perfect, I made them appear they were. I’d conceal the bruises, make up stories for the tears, and always keep the truth of what happened behind closed doors with my husband to myself.
Nora saw through my charade and woke something inside me I didn’t even know existed. Being with her is wrong, and the feelings I’m developing are even worse, but how do I say no to someone that
makes me feel so alive?
Moving to the sleepy suburbs was the change I feel I needed after the military. I’d settle in, work at my brother's tattoo shop, and try to remember what life was like before, all while appeasing my therapist.
What I wasn’t expecting though was Kaitlin. I could tell there was more to her than she said when she came to welcome me to the neighborhood, but I never expected the skeletons she would lay at my feet. I know she’s off-limits and I’m no home-wrecker, but my feelings for her are impossible to ignore.
