The goodbye girl…

The depression slowly sat down on Chrissy. Tears continue to flow as the memories of the good times she and Erik had together failed to comfort her.

“Where did I go wrong?”

In the midst of her anguish, her cell phone rings. The familiar jingle of Little Sister by Stevie Ray caused her to smile.

“Hi mom. How are you?”

“Hey sweetie. I am ok, just got home from the grocery store. My Lord, everything is so expensive! Anyway, I bought a pot roast and thought you and Erik could come over for dinner.”

The invitation felt like a dull knife in the ribs, silent tears slid down her cheeks as Chrissy takes a deep breath.

“Mom, Erik left me for another woman.”

The news caused the line to go silent.

“Mom? Mom are you there?”

“Oh sweetie, I am so sorry. Are you okay?”

“He was everything to me mom! How could he do this to us? What does she have that I don’t? Why aren’t I enough?”

“Sweetie, I don’t know why he left. I am sure you feel rejected but sometimes we go through bad times to get to something better…”

” I don’t want better! I want him!”

“I know baby but he didn’t want you.”
