Summary: Faith; complete trust or confidence in someone or something.
Faith; complete trust or confidence in someone or something. Relationships are started on faith. Faith that the person you are getting involved with tells you the truth. Faith that that person is who they say they are. Faith that they are trustworthy of your secrets and you are of theirs.
But then in a matter of seconds, that faith is shattered. One blinding moment of sound and heat and flame crumbles the faith you had in two people you thought would never lie to you.
One is the man who raised you. The man who watched you take your first steps in this world. The man you called father, dad, papa… He lied to you your whole life and you never even suspected the secrets he hid, the things he did. It hurts to even consider how many deaths could be on his hands; hands that picked you up when you fell.
The other is the man you’ve grown to love. The man you thought you might have forever with; but forever is just a fairytale. He lied to you from the moment you met. Lied about his name, about his job, about his whole damn life. You realize that you never knew him and yet you slept with him, told him you loved him, wanted to grow old with him and have his children.
It was all one big lie. From the moment you were born until the moment that car exploded, you were living a lie and didn’t even know it. Now you know the truth and almost wish to be back in the safety of the lie. You long to rewind the clock to where it was just you and the man you love.
But that will never happen, because you know your faith has vanished forever.
