Someone once said… “Laugh as much as you breathe and love as long as you live.”

Perfect Love/Perfect Lie con’t

Brie is back on the sofa to continue her story. (if you missed the beginning click here to catch up)

As I said our love story started out so beautifully. We looked like the perfect family to all who knew us.  But things started to change and I knew something wasn’t right the moment he stopped coming home on time. Kane began working very long hours and started traveling on weekends. I knew it wasn’t right but I think a big part of me didn’t want to know what was really going on. By now we had moved into a big house with a beautifully manicured lawn and all the toys. I covered for Kane when he didn’t make it to the kids soccer games or birthday parties. I told everyone that he was in the middle of an important deal and he had to work around the clock. I don’t know why I did it. I guess I wanted to believe it and I certainly didn’t want to disappoint everyone who thought we had the perfect love. Things went on like this for years. I took care of the kids and cleaned the house while he was always away somewhere making deals or who knows what. I lived in a beautiful house, drove a luxury car and never saw a bill. Many woman would have killed for my life but I was lonely and living what I knew to be a lie. This life was killing me.

One day when my oldest son was in third grade an older student came up to him and said my mom just had a baby and she is your sister. I was thankful that my son was too young to understand or believe such a thing. I told him that she had him confused with someone else and he forgot all about it. Of course Kane denied the alligation when I confronted him. I let it go and continued on with our little charade. There were days when I felt like I was being followed and times when the phone rang but no one spoke.

It wasn’t until an orange eviction sticker appeared on my front door that I began to think I could no longer hide from the truth. Kane said not to worry it must be a mistake and he would take care of everything. Once again I gave in to his confidence and went on with my life. It took my car being repossessed and a Christmas alone before I convinced myself that he was having an affair and didn’t care about us.

I went to a lawyer after the holidays were over and filed for divorce. I had the locks changed and threw his belonging out on the lawn. I told myself that I was strong and that my family deserved better. I found a job and let my lawyer take care of the rest. My court date was fast approaching when the notice went in the paper. That notice started a chain of events that my lawyer and I just couldn’t believe. Things like this only happen in the movies and certainly not in my life.

Junie: We will conclude Brie’s family saga later. One can only imagine the ending to this unbelievable story. It’s really good!

It Must Be True

It has been several weeks since I heard such an interesting confession. Penny (let’s call her that) was a beautiful girl with a boring life. Her confession started with what she liked to do for fun. She said she liked to stalk people she was envious of until she got their routine down. Then she would break into the house when they were away and pretend to be them. Touch their things, wear their clothes, lay in their bed. This really creep-ed me out. I wasn’t quite sure if she made it up to impress her me or if it was for real. She described her last scenario play by play and I couldn’t believe what I was hearing. Here is her startling confession as told to me from the Velvet Lady:

 Penny knew exactly where the key was hidden and it took her less than a minute to get inside. She quickly made her way up the long staircase. She knew right away which bedroom belonged to Debra and Dan. As soon as she opened the closet and began to touch Debra’s clothes, a snap came over her and the fantasy began. She touched her sweater, touched her robe, touched the boiled wool coat Debra got for Christmas, touch, touch, touch, jackpot, this was the one. She chose the silk nightgown with a matching robe that was trimmed in a fluffy feather boa. It fit her like a glove and flowed off her body in a very sheer fabric. She sat down in front of the dressing table and brushed her hair, next came the make up and the jewelry. Then she walked down the steps in Debra’s black pumps and opened the refrigerator to pour herself a glass of orange juice. Just as she sat down at the kitchen table and opened the newspaper she heard a car door slam. She jumped to her feet as her glass of orange juice shattered across the floor. She tugged at the slider but it wouldn’t budge. She then saw the wedge in the bottom track and removed it. The door slide open, she kicked off her shoes and ran across the lawn, around the shed and to the side of the house. She peeked around the corner to see Dan open the front door and walk inside. Penny made a dash for her car and drove off down the dirt road in Debra’s see-thru nighty. She said her heart was turning summer salts, but it was the most exciting twenty minutes of her life- even better than sex.

Penny laughed as she touched the souvenir she was wearing. It was a pearl necklace that belonged to Debra. Penny said it was the best pearl necklace she ever got.

Who could make something like that up? It must be true!
