My sister began to gush about Maxie. I did/did not want to hear what she had to say.
On one hand I was ravenous for information about Maxie. On the other, this was my sister’s boyfriend and I was engaged to another man.
It was then, taking off my dress and shoes, hearing Jenny’s gush, I developed my counterfeit personality.
I pretended that I was near indifferent when in truth I was avid. I went in to take a shower, and she followed. She sat on the toilet, talking and talking about the man she was falling in love with.
When I came out she was not finished, and so I knew that Jenny loved that man as much as I did.
I would let it go. Let go of all possible connections. Save and except, my dreams.
