How to Tell Your Ex You Left Him For a Sugar Daddy: Part 2

Josh pro­ceeded to say that he was now mar­ried with two chil­dren, and the look on my face must have said more than I hoped.

You know, when you left, I was crushed. I didn’t think I would find love again,” he said. I took a deep sigh, because through his joy, I could sense that I had deeply hurt him. He looked at my ring and con­tin­ued, “I’m glad we both found love again, Cas­san­dra. I just hope you’re as happy as I am.”

I smiled and looked away. Imme­di­ately, he knew. After all, this was a man who, at one time, wanted to spend the rest of his life with me. “Tell me,” he said, “What’s going on with you?”

Part of me wanted to tell him every­thing. I wanted to tell him that the rea­son I broke off our engage­ment wasn’t because I didn’t love him, but because I was caught up in a pas­sion­ate affair that I now regret­ted. I wanted to tell him that that affair was with the same man who I was cur­rently break­ing my vows with again. I wanted to tell him that I was sorry, and that I was happy he finally found true love. I wanted to tell him that I still loved him and that I made a huge mis­take. But instead, I took a deep breath.

It’s a long story Josh.” I took a sip of my cof­fee and smiled. For a sec­ond, I imag­ined that I was his again. I was taken back to a time where things were less con­fus­ing, when love was all I knew. My love for him was greater than it ever was for Der­rick, my lover, and sadly even for my hus­band, Robert. If it had not been for my affair with Der­rick, I am cer­tain that I would be hap­pily mar­ried with chil­dren. I would have been that volup­tuous blonde kiss­ing him goodbye.

My thoughts were inter­rupted by Josh grab­bing his phone. All I could do was stare at him and wait. “Mary, baby, I ran into an old ex… No, honey, it was Cas­san­dra. I will tell you every­thing when I get home, OK? I love you, baby. See you tonight.” He put his phone down and looked up at me with well-known eyes. “I’m all yours, darling.”

I bit my lip and smiled. I was ready for the truth to come out.
