Greatly Mistaken

“Did you have a good weekend with Daddy?” Gina asked Cameron as he played happily with his Legos.

“Yes, Mommy.”

“What did you two do?”

“We watched movies and played games.”

“Fun weekend, huh.”

“Yes. Auntie Kira’s going to have a baby.”

Gina stared at him.  “She is?”

“Yes.  That’s what she told Daddy, Cousin Mel and me.”

“Melania was there?”

“Yes.  She and Daddy took me to the park on Saturday.”

Gina bristled.  So, those two have been seeing each other.  Well, if they think that I’m simply going to give him a divorce, they’ve got another think coming.

      1. I am always dumbfounded by the one who is no longer loved working so hard to get him/her back. I know, I know, they believe they can get them to love them again… or, at lease not let anyone else do so.

    1. You’re right, Keith. There is. Matt and Gina are separated and he has filed for a divorce. His reasons have to do with things Gina has done. Gina has accused him of having an affair with Melania but it isn’t true although the attraction is there. This story is part of an ongoing series.

    1. Dear Rochelle,

      Matt tried his best to save his marriage even though it seemed hopeless because of Gina’s lingering feelings for his married brother, Joel. And her not telling Matt about the miscarriage, which he only learned by accident when her doctor’s secretary told him thinking that he already knew and then Gina’s attempt to seduce him so that she could get pregnant again so that she wouldn’t have to tell him about the miscarriage were the final straw. And that’s why the marriage is where it is now.

      Thanks 🙂 Am happy you liked the dialogue.
