What Did I Tell You?

By Teresa Smeigh 2019

“What did I tell you in the beginning,” Robert questions Tammy.

“I know what you told me, but I hoped you would change your mind,” she faltered.

Decisively he says to her, “Tammy I told you over and over I would not leave my wife for you. We are having a great time and that is all I am looking for. I have a wife; I don’t need another. I don’t want to hurt you, but I can’t hurt her either. We need to end this now before my wife finds out.”

Tammy stood there vacillating, neither moving to leave nor trying to talk him out of it. She knew he had made it clear he wasn’t looking to leave his wife and wouldn’t. She was the one who kept going and hoping she could change his mind. She should have gotten out of this relationship long before she fell in love with him.
