Yes, I told her what had happened. Actually, I sent her a copy of the newspaper article, along with a card. I knew she’d never see the story herself, and I doubted anyone else would tell her about it.
So I told her. I’m sorry if I hurt you, that wasn’t my intention. In fact, if anything, it was just the opposite.
Of course I’m on your side. And I think you secretly wanted me, or someone, to tell her, but you didn’t know how to ask.
No, I didn’t tell anyone else about it. They don’t need to know, and I don’t think they’d understand what we both know, that she isn’t evil, she isn’t a terrible person. She just was the wrong person for you.
But some ties are hard to break, even when others are splintered beyond repair. Despite your pain you know that’s true. She deserved to know.
I’m still on your side. Please forgive me.
