No One Kills For A Breakfast: The Murder of Rebecca Aylward
A bet that started off as a joke but yielded deadly results for a young woman.
Romance is known to be sweet. As the world progresses, we see romance and love take on a bolder theme in books and movies. However, it seems as though romance in its glory cannot run a plotline on its own. There are times writers streak it with violence, jealousy, and grief. If we pull ourselves out of the world of fiction, it is easy to notice that real life is also littered with similar patterns. Relationships are catapulted into another direction fired by jealousy, anger, and resentment. At times these feelings can go out of control in either one of the parties involved. Toxicity oozes, and then it’s time to disconnect. The story of Rebecca Aylward and Joshua Davies’s romance might have fizzled out at some point, but the feeling that ended up replacing it was nothing short of deadly.
Rebecca and Joshua grew up in the South of Wales. Both of them were 14 years old when their romance bloomed. As time went by, Rebecca and Joshua’s relationship began to get strained. Soon it lost the consistency that had been going strong for a while, Joshua becoming more challenging to deal with as time went by. Rebecca, on the other hand, had outlined two goals in her life. She was studying and working towards becoming a barrister while keeping her withering relationship with Davies going strong.
However, as inconsistent as they were, it was hard for their parents to determine when the two of them were dating and when they weren’t. Considering that her parents had initially treated Davies like a son, they were reasonably disappointed when he began spreading rumors about Rebecca claiming she was pregnant. However, Rebecca believed that she loved him and was willing to give their relationship another chance. A theme that seemed to be consistent between them.
