Yesterday she saw them, strolling down the Acera Arbolada holding hands. She watched them, kicking herself for believing that he had changed. The last time when she found out that he was seeing another woman on the side, she confronted him. He begged her to give him a second chance and promised not to cheat again.
Foolishly, she took him back and things were going well until her friend, Melba warned her that he was cheating again. At first, she refused to believe that he’d do that to her again because he’d given her his word. Well, she soon discovered that his word wasn’t worth a darn. Instead of confronting him there and then, she walked away.
And now he was standing here in her doorway acting all innocent. Well, she didn’t waste any time telling him, “We’re through.”
He looked bewildered. “But, Baby…”
“Don’t Baby me. I saw you with another woman walking down the Acera Arbolada.”
“That was my sister.”
“If that’s how you carry on with your sister, then you’re more messed up than I thought.”
“Okay. She’s my sister’s friend. I’m sorry…”
“Not as sorry as I am.”
She slammed the door in his face.
