I told her I would never write about her again.
The first time I wrote about her was in 2009. I met her in a bookstore and she was drawing and I was attracted to her. I asked her what she was drawing.
She told me her whole story. And then a week later I wrote about it. That same day I got my first death threat. “I could kill you for writing about her.”
I apologized to her. We met. I asked her out. She said no.
“You’re too old for me.” Which I was.
I wrote about her again a few years later. Not because of her but because of who her boss was.
