After all the agonizing, the second guessing, the compelling need to know, he finally broke down, and told her the truth. The truth was suppose to set her free, not bring her to her knees. I was wrong he is a liar, and a cheater! To make things worse it’s his twenty-four year old secretary. So his new love is two years younger than his youngest daughter.
I’m not sure if my friend is in shock, or just relieved to finally have him fess up. The one thing I am sure of is the fact that she is 100% pissed off. She’s always been the calmer one in our circle. Sharp wit, and dry sarcasm, always delivered in a calm, precise way. Now she’s like a caged bull whose had his rectal temperature taken with a hot poker.
I think I was expecting her to react more like she did when he dropped his bomb about moving out. Pure heartbreak, tears, and devastation. You’d think I’d be more relieved that she isn’t reacting that way, but I’m actually more worried.
There is two of us actually, G-uno and g2. We have been friends for a while, met through our own similarities in duality, openness and love of listening. Our differences as well as our similarities always border on the extreme.
