People are jealous of her life. But this empire of her has been built on a big secret. The guilt has reached its peak.
People are jealous of her life. But this empire of her has been built on a big secret. The guilt has reached its peak. When she’s on the top of the mountain, the people below can’t even dream of her happiness. They don’t even know she is even alive. They just think that she is a tree that was felled and became her home.
She and her little ones have a huge tree house. Her sons are very smart and talented. Her little girls are the most beautiful creatures ever. They are so wise. She is very proud of them. But the most adorable thing about her sons and daughters is that they love her, the tree. She has so much love for them that she couldn’t even express it.
She lives a quiet life, enjoying her solitude. She doesn’t have any human friends. She doesn’t really even need them. Her home is her friends. She is comfortable. She has everything she needs. She doesn’t need anything more. She is content.
Until one day, a young man with the name of Rob comes into her life. He is totally different from other guys she has known. He is totally devoted to her. He loves her. He is always by her side. He never leaves her alone. He looks after her. He loves her unconditionally.
She is so happy. She feels that she has never loved so much. She can’t even put into words how much she loves him. She doesn’t feel the same way about him as he does about her. She doesn’t even have the same feelings as he does about her. She doesn’t know what he sees in her. But she is grateful to have him in her life.
She is surprised to learn that the reason why she is so loved is because she’s a tree. The people who know her, love her for the tree. They love her because she is different. She is different because she is different. She is different because she is loved. She feels so special. She feels so lucky to have met Rob. And she feels so blessed to have the people in her life that she has.
When he and her children leave her, she is bereft. She is shattered. She feels that she is missing out on something important. She has never experienced anything like that before. She has never been lonely. And now that she has, she can never go back to being alone.
When Rob is around, she feels safe. She feels happy. She feels loved.
She can’t help but think, how could it be any different?
She feels empty without her children and her Rob.
She is broken.
But she can’t stay in that place.
She has to do something.
The money is good. But the lies have built up. This empire of her has been built on a secret, and the guilt has reached its peak.
She can’t believe what she’s doing, the lies, the deceit, she’s become a monster in her own mind, she can’t deal with the guilt. She can’t stop now, it’s too late, she’s so far gone.
She lies to the old man. She tells him it’s OK, she knows what she’s doing. It’s just a bunch of lies, he says, there’s nothing to be afraid of, I can handle it, you’re doing the right thing. He says he can’t stay long. He doesn’t want to be a burden, he can’t, he’s got to go. She tells him she understands, and he leaves.
She lies to her mother. She tells her she’s working overtime and can’t get off to come over for the weekend. She tells her she’s too busy. She lies to her mother when she goes to see her, tells her she has a cold and can’t come. She lies to her mother, and to her sister, when she calls, because her mother is worried, her sister is worried, her father is worried.
She lies to her friends, her co-workers. She lies to her mother, tells her that she has to work late, but she’s got a meeting to go to, it’s important. She lies to her friend, a guy she hasn’t seen in a while, a guy she had a fling with a few years back, a guy she calls for advice, a guy she’s going to give advice to. She lies to her friend, telling him she doesn’t want to see him, doesn’t want to talk about it, says she’s too busy to go out. She lies to him, because her life is a lie, and she has to keep up appearances.
She lies to her best friend. She lies to her friend, she lies to her friend when she asks for advice, because she doesn’t want to see him, she’s got too much to do, she’s got a million things she’s got to get through, and her life is a lie. She lies to her friend, she lies to her friend when he wants to come over, because she’s too busy, too tired, too drained. She lies to her friend, she lies to her best friend. She lies to her best friend.
She lies to the people that have been her most loyal, her most trusted, her most cherished. She lies to her best friend. She lies to her best friend.
