Waiting for Divorce Papers on our 16th Anniversary
submitted by Sandy M.
We were cleaning up our game of checkers, our daughter beaming with pride as the conqueror, as you first laid eyes on your new conquest across the dark bar.
I slipped her Strawberry Shortcake nightgown over her head, as you discreetly slipped your wedding ring into your pocket.
"Come on sweetheart, let's go brush your teeth," I coaxed, as you flashed Her your most coaxing smile.
I looked into our daughter's beautiful brown eyes- your eyes- and talked about plans for the next day, as you looked into Her eyes- brown? blue? green? and planned your night with Her.
"I need one more drink Mama," our little girl said, as you asked Her, "Can I buy you another drink?"
"Mama, tell me another story," our daughter pleaded, as you told Her a story over a game of pool.
She rubbed my swollen belly, and asked, "When will my little brother be here?" as you pressed against Her from behind and laid your hands on Her flat stomach.
I tenderly kissed her on the forehead, and said, "Soon, my baby girl," as you pressed your forehead to Hers, and leaned in for a kiss.
"Please bless Daddy to be safe on his business trip," our daughter prayed, as you continued to prey on Her.
"Goodnight my love, sweet dreams," I said, as you turned to Her, "You know, the night doesn't have to end here."
I stumbled into bed, exhausted, as you led Her, stumbling drunk, into your hotel room.
