Dating a sociopath

This story is based on real events about Mary’s lifespan living in a petrifying mess, in an unfulfilling marriage with an unfaithful man.

Mary begins dating an unnerving sociopath, a self-absorbed, lying person whom throughout his entire life has exploited, stolen, swindled other people and love-scammed many women. It showcases how Doctor Bates, manipulates her, for money and to maintain a sense of power over her vulnerability, which makes it highly authentic and impactful.

Doctor Bates

Drake Lucifer Bates presents himself as educated, funny, charming and with a public persona of normalcy, and therefore Mary could not see what lay behind the dark shade of him. He was inappropriately flirting with her, stepping over the ethical line between patient and Doctor. It was too late for Mary to escape.

Drake made his way into Mary’s psyche and wielded power and fear to attract her, but little did she know that trusting him was fatal. Something vastly magical happened around him and she begins a passionate love affair with him. Their life seemed blissful on the outside, but behind his malicious plan, it was chilling.

Drake eagerly tries at the early stage to seek some benefit from her, because he never married the previous one. The woman he is looking for, usually has valuable possessions and money that the lizard man can profit from. The more naive, unhappy, and helpless she is, the better for him. He preyed on Mary because he knew she had a lot of damage on her self-esteem suffered from insecurity in life and he knew she had a lot of money.

Drake strikes with his nasty sharp claws into Mary’s vulnerability and misuses her to the last drop, without any empathy or remorse. He chillingly torments her until she is severely wounded, like a helpless animal lying in the gutter, abandoned and powerless in her misery! Why has he done so?

Trusting him with her fragile life.

This is a part one of the Burning Desire trilogy. It will obsess you.

Mary doesn’t see he is a Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde type, consuming her into his dark, shady terror of promises of a better and happier life. 

Drake’s manipulative behaviour and scams, ends disastrous and Mary becomes a character in his weird performance of his imaginary disturbing life as he sinks into his mania of deceives and lies, while the romance takes them around the globe.

Drake wants Mary to invest in different conning business concepts, promising her they will become rich and famous. How does she figure out what she can expect from him? Her life was never the same, but Mary learned from Drake’s evilness.

BURNING DESIRE FADES: The Psychopath and the Girl in Black Prada Shoes – Part 2

BURNING DESIRE FADES: The Psychopath and the Girl in Black Prada Shoes’ – Part 2 presents the continuation of the maliciously agenda in Doctor Bates plan for Mary. It will leave you in a trance of shock with its vigorous narrative.

A moment ago, it seemed, it was yesterday full of happiness. Tomorrow it is a matter of survival for Mary as her life is on the brink of insanity to her Knight in Shining Armor. Loving him was all she ever had and with tears in her eyes, as she watched him disappear with hasty steps as a shadow over the horizon as if it has all been a ghostly dream in Mary’s head.

As she meets Drake again, she becomes a slave in the madness of love. Before Mary notice the dangerous life, she gets deeply trapped in Drake’s dodgy mesh, but it’s too late for her to escape. Fraud, lies, dominance, torment, and the complexity of an abusive relationship evolve, and will unexpectedly be a new part of Mary’s life. Drake’s sinister betrayal sneaks slowly in as he lures Mary like a ravenous wolf in sheep’s clothing.

He has a high IQ, above normal.

On the outside, it seems Drake is loving and has a high IQ, above normal. On the inside, he is a devious psychopath.

Drake’s complete lack of self-discipline and respect for obligations, rules, and social norms are immense. And his speech patterns are repeated lies. His mood swings are almost impossible to see through.

The story will drastically unfold to a complexity of a love drama, crime, fraud, and Drake’s delusions of grandeur. Mary discovers what a malicious, cunning, narcissistic artist Drake is. An evil psychopath! A bloodsucking leech who has sucked the last blood out of others through his entire life.

Mary becomes the next victim of Drake’s mystiques and ponderous impostures plan he gets during the nights, and she will experience love and deception. On the outside, it seems Drake is loving and has a high IQ, above normal. On the inside, he is a devious psychopath.

The mafia in Hong Kong

At a secluded area outside Hong Kong, the mafia attempt to kill Drake. We will follow the two sweethearts in how they try to escape from the difficulties with the Asian Mafia. Not only once, but several times the two lovebirds are on the run in the shadowy darkness of the night, fleeing as two shifty thieves.

Drake has the flawless ability to bend the facts. It’s always someone else’s fault. That is his best play. No matter what, that’s how it’s done. He is the most dangerous and devious individual that she ever has met.

Mary will experience love, hatred, and deception; however, will she continue to be Drake’s victim in his mystiques and hefty deceptions he gets during the nights?

You can fool people some of the time, but you can’t fool them all of the time. 


The constant element of unpredictability.

The constant element of unpredictability was massive during the time she knew him. It was never to know what was meant or what he wanted. What was good yesterday or today was often gibberish tomorrow in his mind.

It was never to know what he meant or what he wanted. What she did good yesterday or today was often gibberish tomorrow in his mind. What is happening here is, some people are truly skilled manipulators. He appeared mysterious, special, outstanding, and grand. However, such people they can lie, cheat, and mistreat you. And somehow, they always make it all seem to as it’s all your fault.

The Puppet Master

He is a true Puppet Master dragging her around as a subjugated and scarred dancing Circus Bear in his arena, and he tapped into her senses as few others couldn’t. He was very charming and magnetic and knew precisely how to turn ‘his target on’ towards him. So, she only wanted more of him, and wanted to explore his magnetic way of being. She had to find out what was so special about him…

Little did she know it was for the better… but for the worse in her life. Some people are truly great manipulators, and it is impressive how they can lie, cheat, treat you badly, and somehow manage to make it all seem to like it’s all your fault.

And this is the man she trusts!

There is always some madness in love. But there is also always some reason in madness.

Friedrich Nietzsche

    You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find
    this matter to be really something that I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complex and very broad for me. I’m looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!
