Mum! Pain cuts right through my heart and a sudden longing for her rises within me.
Have my words been plain rude? Or did I just freak out because a man, other than David was flirting with me?
My partner of three and bit years. He was the love of my life, or at least so I thought. I was twenty-four when I moved from Tasmania to Sydney. I had applied for a job as an events manager, not believing I’d have a chance. But I got the job. Same day I got the job, I was so excited I missed the bus. It was pouring rain. And that was when I met David, when he offered me half of his umbrella. Yes, he was that kind of man. Well, I assume still is. Just not with me anymore, but with the other woman. Apparently, the one who’s more organised and more mature.
Sad, but true.
