My only friend, Stieg, has admitted that he is in love with me today. I don't know what to think of that. I think I may love him too, but considering the bizarre attitudes of my emotions, can I really trust that? Could it be that I am so much in need of love that I just think I'm in love?
Stieg is the only person close to me. My mother and father are dead, and I have no siblings, aunts or uncles. He has been the source of everything I have anymore, including the drugs that are killing me. He's vowed to stop enabling my addiction and to save me from myself. He does everything for me, even protecting me from some of the people in my past.
What do I do? How would one of you react? I think, if I do love him, it may give me enough reason to stay in the world. But my heart's had a hole in it from the death of the last person I loved and I don't want to risk that again. I just don't know what to do.
