Note from SweetPoyzin: My apologies…again.
A few months after the funeral things were finally getting settled. Adam was gearing up for college in a couple of weeks. He moved out into his own place to give me space for the kids.
Xander came home one night and had big news.
“Honey! I’m no longer working the night shift! We can get started on that baby now!” He was thrilled. I had doubts.
“You got promoted?”
“Well…not so much. I got…fired. Penny, I haven’t been 100% honest with you. That security job I was working? I was actually a Master Crime Boss. My dad found out and well, I got arrested. Remember that trip I took a year or so ago? Yeah…”
“Get. Out. Now.” I growled. I didn’t know I could make that noise but I growled at him.
“I don’t even care that you were a crime boss, Xander. You lied…for 10 years! I’ve known you for TEN YEARS! How long?”
“I worked there for 8 years.”
“FUCK YOU. You disgust me.” I had no idea how badly his betrayal hurt. I honestly didn’t care about his being a crime boss. He lied…for 8 years.
“How can I fix this, Penny? Tell me. I will do anything.” He was actually heartbroken that he hurt me. I could feel his sincerity oozing off his body.
“Get out and sign the divorce papers I send you tomorrow.”
“Penny! Wait, please!” His begging was almost worse than his lies.
“OUT or I will call the cops on your ass again.”
“I’m so sorry, Peanut. It looks like it’s just us now.”
