One month later.
“Will you be going to the Raphels with us later in the day, sir?”
I stopped typing and stared at my housekeeper. She had coffea at hand, I watched as she dropped it on the desk.
“What’s happening at the Raphael’s?” I asked reluctantly.
“There is a child dedication ceremony going on there and every household was invited. His wife gave birth to a child after years of searching for one.”
“Good for them.”
“Are you going? Everyone will be there, including that witch that killed her husband. It’s the first public appearance she’ll be making after Mr Reed’s burial.”
Astera. It angered me greatly that my housekeeper referred to her as a witch but I didn’t refute it.
I’ve not seen her since that encounter in her house and I’m still angered that she’ll dare to keep feigning ignorance after all these years.
A woman I loved so much. I thought she loved me too but she didn’t.
Three years ago, Astera was a virgin. I never wanted to touch her until marriage. I was thinking of proposing to the woman I love….a woman I thought loved me back.
I didn’t know that Astera was cheating on me behind my back with Daniel!
She claimed that she was just friends with him but they were sleeping together and she was even thinking of marrying him!
She played me all along!
Daniel felt guilty and confessed it all to me when he couldn’t take it anymore. He even showed me pictures of him and Astera in bed.
I closed my eyes against the familiar wave of pain. You’d think that after three years the pain would be better, but it isn’t.
She took me for a fool, won my heart, only to crumble it under her shoes.
When I broke up our relationship, she feigned tears and ignorance. But then, she married Daniel soon after we broke up.
“Sir? Are you still with me?”
My housekeeper’s voice brought me back to reality. “Yes?”
“I’m asking if you’ll be going?”
I started typing again to shove off the painful memories best forgotten. “Yes, Sellia. I’ll go.” I replied
