Vrolijk kerstfeest iedereen! 2 hoofdstukjes om mijn favoriete feest van het jaar te vieren!
The next morning I walk out to the living room, my eyes still swollen from crying. After our talk on the balcony yesterday, we haven’t seen or heard anything from each other, despite being in the same house together. Harry went right to sleep… And I shut myself in the bedroom and cried all night. I hope we can talk things over today, but I lose hope when I see that he’s left a note on the table.
I’ll be staying over at Crux for a while.
Because we’re not married anymore? I thought I’d cried myself out yesterday, but I feel tears well up again. All I have the strength or will to do is fall to my knees on the floor, so that’s just what I do.
I’m talking to the Principal about transferring to the new school.
“I was surprised when you called. But considering your future, I think this is the right choice.”
“I’m sorry I changed my mind, after turning it down.”
“Don’t worry about it. I’d just spoken to your wife and asked her to tell you to reconsider. I suppose your wife was very convincing, since you decided to accept after all.”
“Yes, I guess you could say that.”
“I thought so. You two really are a great match.” The Principal smiles gently. I try a smile, but fail miserably. “Mr. Styles?”
“No, it’s… nothing.”
“Though our professional relationship is coming to an end, I hope our personal relationship will…”
“Of course. I still have a lot of things I would like to tell you about my mother.”
“I’m pleased to hear that.” The Principal looks relieved. “I also want to make up for all the time I lost, and be a father to you. By the way, since you’re transferring schools, could you give a farewell speech at the school assembly next week? I’m sure the students will be sad to hear about your sudden transfer, but if you let them know why, they’ll understand. Of course, I’ll also…”
“Actually, I need to come clean with you about something. It’s about Elisabeth.”
“About your wife?” I hesitate for a moment, but steel my nerves and press on.
