What happened on that lost weekend?

We had tasted the image of death, for this:

She was with New Man. The sort of man who would catch The Big I Am’s attention. The sort of man who would make Mr Big I Am jealous.

New Man had the looks, the career, the money. He was kind and thoughtful. He had interests that Bella might enjoy. Oh, and he had a girlfriend, a long-standing one at that.

He had taken Bella away for the lost weekend, in his fancy car, to a fancy hotel, in the city. Mr Big I Am style.

Why she couldn’t have told us this, I do not know, there must have been drama, there must have been a show. Maybe The Big I Am was involved. I do not know.

New Man wanted a secret liaison with Bella, to see how their relationship developed. Bella wanted to parade the courtship to catch The Big I Am’s eye.

New Man came around to Bella’s house to visit for a couple of months. He doted on her. Said his girlfriend was a wreck,. He worried about leaving her. Bella did not care, fine by her that New Man was committed he had done his job.

Made Mr Big I Am come back to her.

She ended the relationship with New Man who was not perfect, but was better than this: Better than The Big I Am.

She gave me the gifts New Man had showered her with.

I am the mother of two adult daughters, both much loved and cared for. The eldest thought she could handle social drinking and party drugs, she could not. There is a journey addicts relate to - their journey. As a mother I have healed through the written word. This is my journey.
