“I’m glad they've gone far away sis; what could we say to them?”
“What sort of bastards are you for starters.”
“I don’t feel any anger, just a numbness.”
“I have anger, lots and lots of it."
“Keeping her company while I worked late; I thought he was doing me a favour; I thought I was putting him out. I was so naive.”
“Such a fucking mess John, what a scheming bitch.”
“I should have known it was too good to be true; why would a girl like her want me?”
“What! She is not fit to crawl in your shit; she doesn’t deserve to be on the same planet as you.”
“Not so loud sis, mum will hear.”
“The doctor gave her a sedative; he said she will sleep for a while.”
“I worshipped her; could I have done something different?”
“John! Don’t you dare feel any guilt; everything took place behind your back.”
“What was it dad used to say: ‘Always expect the unexpected.’
“He often said that; I just wish he was here now; and not on an aeroplane with your fucking girlfriend”.
