Jason watched his new wife, Rachel, wishing he could make her laugh like she used to. She’s making him up like a zombie for Halloween but she‘s the one acting like a zombie lately. This past year has been a rollercoaster ride for the young couple, but
now suddenly the ride’s stopped and Jason isn’t ready to get off. He wants his Rachel back, but seeing as his Rachel is hurting because she’s sick, does it really even matter what he wants.
Rachel hates the sadness in her husband‘s eyes. It doesn’t feel like he loves her anymore. But then who could love an emotional cripple like her? She’s dragging him down, but
knowing it doesn’t mean she can control her illness any more than he can.
