Mr Maybe Next Time asked nothing of me, didn't question or challenge me and maybe that is the real reason I stayed with him.
It reminds me of when I was with my first love and to celebrate our first Christmas together he gave me a gold necklace and bracelet set. Which was lovely and more than I had expected, except I never wore or wear gold. He looked up at me from next to the Christmas tree with big brown eyes asking if I liked it.
I proclaimed that jewellery was the lovely, and it was, it just wasn't me. Some lies have kindness behind them.
