Turn

Keylan was so frustrated, confused and scared to lose his beloved Lia. As she was packing her bags and crying her mascara off, she heard the love of her life sobbing with tears and singing “To everything, turn, turn, turn.There is a season, turn, turn, turn. And a time to every purpose under heaven. A time to gain, a time to lose. A time to rend, a time to sew. A time for love, a time for hate. A time for peace, I swear it’s not too late”. Lia wanted to run into Keylan’s arms and embrace his warm heart, but she couldn’t stop the painful images of her beloved with another woman.

Keylan fell to his knees begging Lia for forgiveness. He knew he could not live without her in his life, he needed her by his side, to share deep conversations with, to experience exciting things, to raise their family together and grow old. But Lia continued to walk to the door. All these things Lia was ready to give up because of his infidelity. She didn’t care about the past eight years that they shared together, she just wanted to be as far away from Keylan as possible.

Every sacrifice and struggle that she’s been true could not make her stay. She threw all her plans for her future, education and religion away for him. Because of Keylan, Lia did not have any contact with any of her family or close friends, they don’t want to hear anything from her because they think Keylan would never be good enough for her. Lia was smart, beautiful, and came from a classy family. They lived in a private villa next to Dolly Parton. Lia had a flat tire one late night after school, and was stranded by her self in the dark when Keylan was passing by drunk with his friends in his fathers old pickup. After they stop and help her with her tire Keylan’s friends tried to make a move on her, but Keylan protected her and was already mesmerized with Lia’s big blue eyes and long, curly Golden hair. Keylan didn’t accept any money but just wanted one date, and they couldn’t stay away from each other since then.

During the eight years they’ve been together Lia was happy with Keylan. She didn’t live the classy life anymore but she was content staying in Keylan’s old, dusty trailer in the woods. When Keylan is singing and playing electric guitar at their local bar, Lia always tried to keep herself busy with reading and writing poems. She would stay up reading late with a candle because they didn’t had electricity, while Keylan was hanging out with some of the girls he picked up at the bar. But Lia never knew about his double life until one afternoon she had a strange phone call. With tears in her eyes she confronted Keylan that was drunk laying in front of the television of a sixteen year old girl that was pregnant, and wanted Keylan to start paying big money to support her. Lia was tired and had enough, and on her way true the door Keylan was repeating the last verse of her favorite song “A time for love, a time for hate, a time for peace, I swear it’s not too late”. She remembered her happy years when she really felt love and peace, but she had this from her family and friends who truly cared for her. She realized she had turned her back from her loved ones and chose someone that did not show her love. Lia walked out the door and never turned back.
