“You can't tell me what to do anymore." She snapped right back. Her nostrils flared her eyes wide and her belly poking out from under her maternity uniform. She got right in his face." I'm not afraid of you."
“Quit getting in my business." He growled, his right eye twitching.
He had returned from Iraq to his job at the post office. He was a raw, throbbing nerve. At first she soothed that nerve.
She was one of the new hires. She helped him carry his route. He helped her deal with an abusive husband. They were drawn to each other like lightning to a metal rod.
She had moved in with him by July 4. She left behind two little boys who were wondering why another mommy had left.
She thought she had solved all her problems but the bliss lasted about six months. They were like two bottle rockets duct taped together.
Finally, he shut all his emotions down, like a safety switch on a roller coaster. He asked her to move out. It almost killed her.
Her daddy came and packed her up and moved her back home. She kept the diamond. After six months and a dozen more boyfriends, she came to work, her tiny fingers showcasing another ring. Two weeks later she was married. Two months later she was pregnant.
And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken.
