Short story, for my own accountability.
I was trolling IG and came across Tony’s daughters IG and she posted a photo of them tonight.
He was once again wearing his wedding ring.
I wasn’t shocked by the ring per se, just shocked to see him in a photo as I haven’t seen him since last April or any photo since he lost weight. But, my eyes did go right to the wedding ring.
I tried to dig deep to determine what I was feeling. Why I still troll. Why it matters to me to know what he’s doing in his life.
I know it shouldn’t matter.
The only thought I had was – that’s priceless – he’s wearing a ring after 5+ years of no ring and 15 years of infidelity.
Maybe he’s making a statement that he’s invested back into his marriage. Maybe she’s making him wear it. Maybe his guilt put it back on. Maybe it’s to show a unified front to his kids. Maybe he finally wants to do what’s right. Either way it shows he’s invested himself, somehow, back into his marriage.
And very, very strangely, I have a hope (for Kelly) that she get back the man she deserves because that man, the one I loved, is well worth having. She should get all of that good stuff.
But him, well I hope she makes him suffer for at least a little while and he’s miserable for all he did.
