Five Minute Friday- Last

Five Minute Friday
I was training a very dear friends to cover my shift at the hotel and I can’t remember how it came up, but my Uncle mentioned HIM.

My friend asked me who he was. And I mentioned the basic facts: how he ended up running around with the wrong set of people. Crack became his #1 and he eventually stole thousands of dollars from the safe.. He nearly lost his life once when he stabbed IN THE THROAT.

I completely left out that he was my first love. The one that sometimes comes to haunt you in the dead of night.

When I met Tony, I remember walking to work. Not sure what HE was talking about, but I told him that I wouldn’t let him ruin what I had going on. It was the last time he spoke to me.

Often I really need to know how he’s faring. Google helped me out with that. He’s currently in jail.. for trying to break into an ATM and for stealing a prescription pad and writing false prescriptions..

The best thing he did for me was to let go… And I wonder sometimes, when my life is so great and I love my husband beyond measure.. that I think of those last moments with HIM when I broke up. Where  I begged and pleaded for him to quit the drugs.. to just flush it in the trash.. To give me some so my life could be ruined to (not that I expected to do it.. I was just gauging his reaction” And crying in the middle of the night on the curb waiting for my mom to pick me up..

  1. Powerful story, thank you for sharing what must’ve been a hard episode of life. Like Melanie, I’m always amazed how one word leads down so many paths.
