Marty was my Best Friend, I’d know him for my life. Yet… he could take Julie away from me. Could take her, pretend to love her, and leave me empty.
If he had loved her, if he had respected her… if he had married her… or if he had dumped her…I could deal with it. But not using her.
When he sat there, belching out his repulsive remarks about Julie, I lost it.
And so, things happened.
Decades ago, things happened.
I married Julie, I loved her as much today as I did when we first met. She is the mother of my children,my soul mate, and I have never said or done anything to deliberately hurt her.
And I never will.
So I will lie here, until I die, in silence.
