Having known a brat like Gabi when I was her age, having seen the shambles that was Maude’s life, I would not give Gabi the power. I would not allow her to control my life.
Daniel had let Gabi destroy his marriage. Yes, it was a new marriage, but obviously ‘Sherry’ (the wife) took one look at Gabi, a glance at Daniel, and ran as if from a fire.
Daniel had never realised what he would lose until his wife was gone.
I didn’t know anything about Sherry, assumed she was nice. But I knew Gabi. I knew how Gabi would try to make it ‘me or her’.
Gabi didn’t try a ‘Me or Brad’ tantrum is that she knew I would pick Brad over her, and didn’t want the humiliation.
Poor soft Daniel was caught in Gabi’s web, and when she went away to college he was in free fall.
