After finding out about Axel stealing my underwear and firing him, I knew things had to change. I had spent a long time thinking about my life and the way I treated the people who tried to care about me.
I think I may have made an even bigger mistake when I tried to fix my life. I was probably better off with Axel.
Most of my time now is spent reading, talking to the toilet, and more reading. Sounds lonely, doesn’t it? It’s actually not. I have people here with me.
I’ve moved in with Salim and his children. It hasn’t been easy being around the kids, but I’m getting by. If I had known about the kids, I never would have agreed to marry Salim. It turns out he only married me to have someone to care for the kids.
I’ve been a good wife even if having Salim touching me makes my skin crawl. I don’t love him. Not like I did Andrea. I will never love anybody like him.
I can put up with this for a few years, I guess. Salim won’t live forever.
