She said, “The temperature is perfect tonight. Perfect for sleeping on the patio. In the hammock. It’s comfortable.”
“And it’s not comfortable for Mike. Me sleepin’ on the couch.”
“He didn’t say anything but…”
“I understand. I do.”
And, I do. Mike is Janet’s boyfriend. They’ve been together a little bit over eight years.
She’s known Mike all her life but fell in love with him a year or so after her life wuth me came to an end on Dec. 30, 2006.
I let the tenth anniversary pass without mention. Though, I bowed my head and recounted the events all the way up to the dissolution of our relationship…to the end of what I was convinced would last forever…and the acknowlegment to God and to, no one else coz, believe me, they don’t want to hear it…the acknowlegment that I only have myself to blame…it was my doing….my fault…
