The Adoption Killer

“So, I guess this is it?”
“You said it in question form,” Tara said. “It’s not a question. You cheated…and…we’re done.”
“You don’t really believe that, do you?”
Tara dropped her head. “When we first got together, we promised each other we’d tell each other the truth…”
“I told you the…”
“Yeah, you told me the truth after it was too late. After I found out, you told me.”
I rested my hands on my hips. “And there’s no working it out?”
“What could you possibly say to make this better?” Tara said.
“I cheated; this is true, but…”
“I know… it was somehow my fault, right?” Tara raked her fingers through her long, blonde hair. “It’s always my fucking fault.”
“I got this in the mail.” I waved a long white envelope in the air.
“What’s that?”
“We got the kid.”
“You mean, the adoption went through?”
I nodded. “And her name is Angie.”
“We get to adopt a girl?” Tara shouted.
I smiled. “Gonna forgive me now?”
“But… what about…”
“I’m done with Jan.”
“How do I know it’s for sure this time?”
“Because I killed her.”
“Wait, what? Woah. You killed her for me?”
“I did.”
Tara threw her arms around my neck. “My kinda guy,” Tara said and kissed me.

Welcome to my world! We go through a lot in our lives but to accept them with an open heart and emotional strength is what keeps us alive. My posts are about all those little fears, happy moments, and anticipation we experience throughout our lives. I hope you find solace in them!
