The Truth is Out
I finally told him the truth. I told him I was seeing another guy. He took it surprisingly well. I explained to him that this guy gave me the attention he couldn’t. I thought he’d be mad at me…I expected him to walk away and never talked to me. Instead, he laughed at me.
He told me it was cute that I craved it so much I’d go behind his back. He told me not to lie to him anymore, then he told me to tell him everything. He lectured me. He punished me. He made me make it up to him. Then he told me he loved me. He said he’d always be there for me. He promised to always be in my life. We talked in a way we’ve never talked before. He reassured me of everything. At the same time, he reaffirmed everything the other guy had told me.
He has a gift. He knows how to manipulate people and he does it well. I’m in love with him. But I no longer belong to him. It feels odd. I guess I just have to get used to it.
