  1. Wait, I hope she’s not still living with him…

  2. Yes, the whole ‘secret’ is more disturbing than something to celebrate, but I think the quotation marks around “leaving together” mean she tricked him into retiring, then made a run for it (or at least I sincerely hope so).

    I did think about it before posting it; every victim/survivor of violence has the right to find their own meaning in their experience (as a survival mechanism if nothing else) – the emphasis for me is the desperate situation this girl was put in, we don’t, and can’t, know if her strategy actually worked.
