There’s no line between love and hate, not even a fine one. It’s a mud puddle.
And you can be simultaneously mired in both.
Let me explain. You love someone. They reject you. Now you hate
them. But you still can’t stop loving them, even if you hate yourself for it.
A hot fucking mess, right?
I halt on the shoulder of the road. As the tires hit the gravel, the steering
wheel vibrates under my hands, as if my SUV understands the significance of
the moment. My heartbeat accelerates, my blood rushes, and heat blooms on
my skin. I lower the window and take a deep breath, holding the cool
December air in my lungs for a few seconds. I smell burning leaves and
dampness. The first snow of the season is forecast for this evening. The
weather won’t affect my plans. Nothing will. I exhale slowly, then repeat the
exercise twice more, until my pulse steadies. After weeks of preparation, the
first step of my plan is finally coming to fruition. I can’t—won’t—lose my
Forest and fields flank the country lane. Winter has stripped the trees
bare. There are three houses in sight. The blue saltbox in front of me is
currently for sale, vacant and dark. It’s been on the market for over a year,
and clearly no one has shown any interest in buying it. The property is listed

My gaze shifts to the house across the street, a tiny white ranch-style
home. A lamppost and a porch light both blaze. The owner left for work at
four thirty, as he does every weekday afternoon. He must work nights,
because he never returns until early morning. I know this because I’ve been
watching the street, making careful notes about the residents’ activities.
It’s the third house that interests me, the small farmhouse on the other
side of the saltbox. Spencer LaForge—the first name on my list—lives there.
Lights glow inside and out.
On his dating app profiles, Spencer describes himself as a forty-sevenyear-old digital marketer. His photos show a fit, attractive man with a smile
full of straight white teeth and enough of a tan to make him appear outdoorsy.
He claims to enjoy good conversation and a nice pinot noir. His hobbies
include running, hiking, and reading. He’s looking for companionship and
That’s not what he’s going to get today.
He doesn’t deserve a nice life anyway. He’s a liar, a cheat, a player. But
the truth wouldn’t make an attractive dating profile, would it?
Superficial, middle-age douchebag seeks hot younger woman to fuck
and dump wouldn’t get many swipes.
Killing him might seem a little harsh, but Spencer is a liar. Not the
worst one, but a liar just the same. He must pay for the way he treats people.
Today, I’ll cross him off my list.
