Your first emotion: anger. It sweeps over you, leaving you prostrate.
Was it just a month ago he served his ultimatum? Four weeks later after proclaiming undying love he is standing next to a model who looks like her last meal was a small green salad.
But anger dissipates followed by disbelief, hurt, tears, alcohol.
A ruse, you think. A test.
You dial his number; it goes straight to voice mail. Seven times it does this and then the eighth time a computer voice says that calls are not being accepted from your number.
His ultimatum completes. You’re history.
