Not surprisingly, after the week, Gabi decided to stay with her father. She told me he was alone.
She told me, with almost a crow in her voice, that Sherry, (the wife) had arrived at Daniel’s flat that Friday, a few hours before Brad and I.
Gabi told me; “I didn’t see any reason to be nice to her, so wasn’t.” She described how she had stalked off to her room. When she emerged, Sherry was gone, and never returned.
Although I had predicted it, I was still a tad surprised. I felt so sorry for Daniel. Putting Gabi first had put him last. And no wife, especially a new one, is going to accept being second best to a spouse’s child, especially one like Gabi.
As Gabi had been so effective in destroying her father’s life I was not surprised when she demanded to move in with him.
Not surprised and quite happy.
