It has been a month since I caught him texting Pauline. Some days, I try not to think about it, but most days I think about it once a day. When I feel his phone vibrating in the middle of the night, I will think whether it is Pauline or some other girl who is texting him.
He said the family is his priority. My foot! If we are his priority, why didn’t he think twice before messaging her? Why must he change his password the moment he realised that I know them? Why would Pauline say that she had ran out of excuses to go out at night?
He lied and he hurt me. Maybe 12 years ago, I should have walked out this marriage when he was sexting Mavis. A complete fool I was to stay in the marriage. He is nice on most days. I got past his ‘cheatings’ but I never got over them.
“On the surface, an intelligible lie; underneath, the unintelligible truth.” How apt this quote describes him.
I will survive. There are some good days, mostly bad but I will survive.
