”’I do,’ I say. ‘I need you.’ He looks upset, takes a deep breath as if to begin a long argument, and that’s no good, no good at all, because he’ll start going on about Prim and my mother and everything and I’ll just get confused. So before he can talk, I stop his lips with a kiss.”
enemy |ˈenəmē|noun ( pl. -mies)a person who is actively opposed or hostile to someone or something.
When we consider the word enemy we use it in the context of someone who we most likely have feelings of great hatred towards. Why do we give someone the label of “enemy”; because they are the antagonist’s in the story of your life. A ex-best friend, that person who bullied you every day for a year, the character who was in opposition to your favourite hero, they can all be considered an enemy to someone. My real question, is what makes someone become an enemy. But one thing I like to believe in is that as soon as that person or character is gone from your life, your life takes a 180 and becomes a whole lot greater, terrific, fantastic, there’s a lot of descriptions the phase change can have.
Despite me sometimes wishing for the ‘good ol’ times’ back, you come to realize that most conflicts that occur in your life have a back story to it. Usually it’s a build up of anger towards the antagonist, which qualifies their disappearance from your life as a good deed. Retaining the motto “what’s done is done” is something everyone who has lost someone that had once cared about should maintain. Recall that they did something that hurt you and can never take back those actions. Remember who the enemy is in the story of your life.
