30 Days of Days: Day 12 - A Day You Wish You Could Do Differently
This couple walks past the yard and the guy speaks, stops and strikes up conversation. I know this conversation was a good 10 minutes. Then they go on their way, around the corner to the club.
A week later, it's early evening and I'm on the porch again, watching the kids play and he comes over and sits and we talk. Turns out he'd lost his brother earlier that morning. A drug deal gone bad.
I listened to what he had to say and we ended up moving the conversation into the house because it got chilly. He was drinking and ended up passing out on the couch. I didn't bother waking him up. Me and the kids slept in my room (doors locked).
Well, that evening was the very beginning of the relationship from Hades. It ended nearly 2 years later with an Order of Protection.
Yep, if I could change that night, we'd have been inside instead of on the porch.
Oh and I found out later, that the girl that was with him was his WIFE. He apparently left her after he met me. In hindsight he was such a liar though, who knows. She was better than me. There would have been no conversation going on. He was openly flirting.
