My ex-wife, her husband and I spoke with Gabi, or maybe ‘at’ Gabi because she was being sour. She said she wanted to stay with me, so Ellen and Brad left.
When they had gone, I let some time pass, tried to speak with Gabi who was not very communicative.
I called Sherry. There was no answer.
I kept trying but Gabi went into some dramatics so I had to put down my phone and deal with her. I finally got her to some level of calmness.
It was not until late that evening Sherry phoned. I began to talk but she was speaking in a strong, hard voice.
She told me that she had lost the baby. When I asked what hospital she was in she told me she wanted to annul our marriage, and hung up.
I felt my whole world collapsing and sat on the chair, crying. Gabi was watching television.
She didn’t notice.
