I didn’t know whether to be comforted by that or not. I sniffed. I wasn’t ready for goodbye, not now or ever. I didn’t go out of my way for us to end here. I wished he had yelled at me or displayed his anger physically, anything but the cold quietness when he spoke.

I understood Felix needed time to process all I had told him and I was relieved when I got a text from Taribo stating Felix was fine. I knew the chances of ever wanting me back was next to null but I still hoped. I remembered the first time Laurette invited me to her office, and how amazed I was at how much she had achieved. I admired her, even more, when she recounted word for word the things I told her the first time we spoke at the restaurant. I was drawn in by everything and when she stole a kiss, I backed reminding her that I was married, she shrugged and responded with an okay and kissed me again. I should have backed out again but I didn’t.

Felix had requested I did not contact him, though it broke my heart, I respected his decision because he needed it.

It’s been over two weeks and five days, well I had been counting. The house was a mess, a reflection of my mind. I stayed in the house while Felix kicked himself out.

I needed to put the house and myself together. I listened to Heaven by Avicii as I set out to clean the house. I was halfway through the cleaning and needed to dispose of the dirt. I quickly ordered pizza. I sighed, I couldn’t believe I had been living like a pig, picking up the trash, I opened the door to find him at the door.


The door was pulled open before I could ring the doorbell. Olivia seemed surprised to see me. She was pretty sweaty, almost like she was working out.

I noticed she wore a pair of shorts and a plain crop top.

May I come in?” I asked

She blinked before answering“ Uh, y-yes. I’m sorry. I wasn’t expecting you.”

Expecting someone else?” I asked, following her lead. The room looked clean, smelled good and felt warm.

I wasn’t expecting anyone. You may have your seat,” she told me. I wanna throw the dirt outside, can you give me less than a minute to do that?”

I nodded and made myself comfortable. She quickly reduced the volume of the speaker and stepped out, giving me a moment to take in the room. I helped myself with a glass of water.

Would you like anything?”

No, I’m fine, thanks. I just took a glass of water.” I told her as soon as she got in.

I mean I wasn’t expecting you.” She said nervously not sure of the news I brought with me. I ordered pizza a few minutes ago and it will be here soon.”

No, I’m fine, thank you,” I assured her.

Before you say anything, Felix I just want you to know that I’m sorry I hurt you in the worst way and betrayed your trust. I understand if you never want anything to do with me, I understand if you don’t see me the same way and whatever your decision is, I respect it.” She swallowed, fondling her hands nervously.

I sighed, you are right, Liv. You betrayed my trust. You hurt me in the worst way, I may not see you the same way but-”

But what?”

But I want us to move past this.”

Okay, I want that too,” she said, sniffing.

I want you to know that I forgive you.” She looked relieved.

Despite everything I want us to work, I still want you, I still love you. So, I need to know if you still want me like I do and are willing to work through this with me?”

Yes! I’m all in Felix,” she said relieved and breathy. tears running down her eyes, but I wasn’t done, There is one more thing.”

Anything she responded.”

We have to go through therapy.”

She was silent for a few minutes before nodding, Whatever it takes for us to get past this. I am all in. Oh my God! I love you so much!” She hugged me, wetting my shoulder with her tears. I exhaled, whispering soothing words to her.

I love you so much.” she kept repeating.

This was the start of a new beginning for us.

The End.
