93. June 2017: One Year Later / Juin 2017 : Un an plus tard

In June 2017, about one year after leaving Kevin, Michelle and William contacted me. They had discovered my journal about my experience with Kevin on the internet and wanted to contact me because Michelle suspected that Kevin was stealing money from her. Her suspicions were right. Over the course of two years, he had stolen … More 93. June 2017: One Year Later / Juin 2017 : Un an plus tard

2. The Love Bombing Stage / La phase de séduction dite du « Love Bombing »

Shortly after arriving in Thiaumont, Kevin began showing an interest in me. He took me to buy a Belgian SIM card for my phone then got my number and my Skype address. He then began messaging me on Skype every day. I did find it very strange that even though we were living in the … More 2. The Love Bombing Stage / La phase de séduction dite du « Love Bombing »

3. Incident #1: The First Time He Lost His Temper With Me / Incident #1 : La première fois qu’il s’énerva contre moi

Kevin was a very angry, bitter and resentful person although he didn’t always come across as that. Very soon into the relationship, it became obvious that there was always a negative ambience around him. It always felt like I was stepping on broken eggshells. Just being around him was draining my soul. The first time … More 3. Incident #1: The First Time He Lost His Temper With Me / Incident #1 : La première fois qu’il s’énerva contre moi

4. Incident #2: I Was Not At The Door To Meet Him / Incident #2 : Je n’étais pas là pour l’accueillir

Another time when Kevin yelled at me soon into the relationship was because I was not at the door to greet him after he came back from a week in France. I had just finished teaching my colleague, Tamara, English and was packing up. I tried to be as fast as I could as I … More 4.

5. Incident #3: The First Restaurant Incident / Incident #3 : Le premier incident au restaurant

One weekend we went for a day trip to Nancy, France and decided to stop in a restaurant for lunch. We had a pizza each but I found my pizza too big to finish so I told Kevin that I was going to ask for a box to take it away in. He said not … More 5.

6. Incident #4: The Second Restaurant Incident / Incident #4 : Le second incident au restaurant

Another incident that happened in a restaurant took place when we were on a trip in Brittany, France in September 2015.

7. Going Home For Christmas / Retour à la maison pour Noël

Kevin said to me that he wanted us to spend Christmas of 2015 together. I was afraid to tell him that I had planned to go visit my mother during Christmas. I was afraid that he would get angry. And this is not normal nor healthy in a couple. People should not be afraid to … More 7. Going Home For Christmas / Retour à la maison pour Noël

8. Decibelle

Kevin’s cat, Decibelle, often got the same treatment as me. Not as bad, however, as she didn’t answer back like I did. She would have been the perfect wife as he would bark at her and she would remain silent. It was also quite sick how he called Decibelle and me his two wives. I … More 8. Decibelle
