A Stranger in His Own Home
I don’t know what’s wrong with Jim. But something is going on and I have to try and figure it out. He’s stopped touching me, looking at me and basically speaking to me unless its work related. He’s treating me like I have the plague.
I told him I had another date tonight, just so that I could get away from his coldness. He’s not a cold man usually, so what have I done to make him act like a stranger in his own home?
Maybe he’s figured out that I’m in love with him. Maybe he’s trying to figure out a way to tell me I have to move without throwing me out. My heart is broken because I thought maybe someday we would be together. What a laugh. Jim acts like he hates me and what a grouch in the morning. I swear he needs to go on a date more than anyone does.
Maybe I should call Naomi and ask her what to do. She would know. No, bad idea because she would tell me to just tell him outright and get it over with. I can’t do that.
Sitting in the parking lot across from the loft, I saw Jim on the balcony all by himself. He looked so sad. I have to think of some way to speak with him about all of this. It isn’t right that he’s become a stranger to everyone. This is his home, maybe I do need to think about moving.
My heart is hurting; I now know what heartbreak feels like. I don’t want to give him up, but I’m going to have to.
I’ll sleep on it for tonight and I’ll make plans tomorrow.
God, I love him.
