WOULD YOU BE WILLING TO KILL FOR LOVE? 'Nobody ever said my life was a bed of roses. Because most of the time it was a piece of shit. Until Eloise, that is. Eloise my love, my Elf, my better self. She swims through the shadows, her sweet face looking down on me. I pick up the blade and turn the slither in my hand; I know I love Eloise more than ever. I love her more than the life-giving blood coursing through my veins. I love her surer than the silvery sparkles of night that will eventually give way to the orange globe of day bursting into the eastern sky. Eloise is my blood, my life, my sun and moon.
