Have you ever lost yourself? Do you remember how it happened? The moment when it all came crashing down? Do you remember how it made you feel? Were you scared? Angry? Did it hit you so quickly that you never even saw it coming? Did you find yourself incapable of reclaiming the person you were before it all went wrong?
That's how it was for me. One day, I was just a girl. Lauren. I was quiet, innocent, naive. I would lay in bed at night and dream about my future. I couldn't wait to find the perfect guy, get married, start a family. Back when I believed that all boys were princes and that happily ever after actually existed.
I guess it's safe to say that I learned the cold hard truth eventually. Though by that time, the damage had already been done. In the blink of an eye, everything changed. What once felt right, no longer did. What once felt like home, felt more like a prison. I knew there was only one way I would ever be free...
I wish running wasn't my solution. I wish there was another way. But there simply wasn't. I couldn't take the looks, the eyes that would follow me everywhere I went, the hushed whispers every time I would walk by. I was suffocating in my own skin with no hope of ever escaping.
But I did escape. I moved on. I healed..... in my own way. And now, I'm free. But no matter how free I am, a part of me will always feel trapped. Forever stuck in the past. A past that haunts me. A past that blinds me. A past that still defines who I am to this very day.
The innocent girl I was all those years ago is gone. Little Lauren is just a shadow, a void of things that used to be. Now everyone knows me as Lo. Resident wild child. The friend that everyone calls for a good time. I'm a dancer at Allure, one of the most secretive and exclusive clubs in the country.
I'm not ashamed of who I am. I like sex. Love it actually. Some say I use it as a shield to hide behind, but those people just don't know me very well. I get off on getting off and I am not afraid to go for what I want.
I don't do boyfriends.
I don't do commitment.
I don't do the same man twice.
