Today he asked me to move in!
Besides the stupid voice in my head, all was fine.
“You are moving way ahead of yourself, Hang in there, just a little bit.“,
Like I said, Stupid voice.
How could I not do it?
He needed me!
He had not been keeping well due to all the take outs and late nights. He wanted to root in now, have someone to take care of him, to belong.
It felt so right!
We have been together for little over a year, we were best of friends and loved each other very much (I did). Obviously, it was a good decision.
But I still couldn’t get the stupid voice out of my head.
It’s been over a month that we were together, life was finally good. Working in the same team had its perks and since he was working really late these days, I thought of sticking around, to help him with the same. He was working on a particular case and client seemed to be more than a little dumb.
From that day on, he would tell me, how little brain that woman had and how she needed him to be on call every second hour. She was part of our regular jokes and the calls were extended beyond normal working hours, till one night I caught him helping her more than he should.
Within days, he asked me to move out, because he was in love.
And now I knew, the joke was on me!
