Finally, six weeks later, Bryan came home. There was some awkwardness, but they were ‘rebuilding’ their relationship.
If she would have spoken, been honest, but she hadn’t.
If she had told him how she missed him, how she cried herself sleep, how she thought he was never coming back…
but she didn’t.
She acted as if it was okay. But it wasn’t okay.
A few weeks passed and she was offered a position in another city. More money, more power. And she took it.
She took without thinking.
Took it as a ‘tit for tat’.
Took it to say…
‘Ha! You went away for over two months and left me! Now I’m going away and leaving you!”
