Sherri – 2
It had been the most crushing experience of my life. Tony had left me, almost at the altar. He called off the engagement, and quit the job and left the city. I felt so abandoned. I had no one.
The only one who understood was Daniel. He was the only one I could turn to, who would make me feel alive.
He didn’t attract me, but he was so nice, so kind, and I needed him.
So he came home with me and spent the night. It wasn’t great sex, it wasn’t love, it was just making me feel desired.
In the morning, I woke to the fragrance of coffee. Daniel had taken the liberty of making me breakfast.
In one way I wanted him out of my flat. But in another, there was no excuse for rudeness.
I smiled, acted grateful, but I wanted him to go. I wanted him to go without drama. I sat and ate, then told him I needed time to reflect.
He said he’d leave after he washed up.
He did leave, without fanfare, and I was now alone, but happily.
