"So ultimately you're here because you want to tell this story, your story, clear your name and so that other women who might get engaged in an emotional affair, or might choose to take the road that you did would think twice about it, is that why you are here?"

"Yes, absolutely, think twice about it, nothing good can ever come out of affairs, it hurts everybody, everybody not just two or three people." I made that clear. I don't regret the moments with Karl, I would cherish them forever, but in the end, it wasn't worth it.

"Is there anything you would like to say to either of the parties, I'm sure they are watching right now?"

"Yes, I would like to talk to Massey."

"Who's Massey?"

"Their daughter."

She nodded understanding.

"If there's anyone who was deeply hurt by the affair, it's Massey, I feel very guilty that I betrayed her trust, I lied. We were best friends, and I'm sorry I ruined it, I'm sorry I ruined our friendship. ..I know you're still hurting by it all and I'm sorry I'm the cause of it. .. I know how it feels to feel alone in the world and then the one person you hoped to be there for you at end of the day betrays you, I grew up with that feeling, it's been there all my life, it's the worst feeling in the world and to think I did that to a child hurts me deeply. Again, I'm sorry and I hope one day you would find it in your heart to forgive me, please call me."

At the end of the interview, Rose and I just drove home without saying anything about it. As soon as we arrived I just scraped out of my tight clothes and jumped into the bath, in a way to get rid of all the tension.

"That went well.." Rose muttered leaning against the door.

"You think so..."

"Yeah, you were honest, that's what's important, you said your truth."

I leaned back with a sigh,



"I feel like a lot was left unsaid, I wasn't expressive enough and a lot of misconception could be dragged out of it."

"What's important is that you apologized. They can think whatever they want."

"It doesn't feel enough."

"Well, that's their problem, you've said your truth and apologized for it and now it's time to move on."

"What now?" I sighed.

She walked closer and sat at the edge of the bath, "I spoke to my manager, how would you like to feature on Vogue?"

I laughed at that,

"You mean like you, model?"

"Yeah, why not? You have the face and the body for it."

"Modeling is not something I've thought of doing, ever. But that's by the way, right now I just want to go through today, it's been a hell of a day."

"Yeah, you're right, we will discuss it later.. I would leave you to enjoy your bath, alone." She chuckled as she left,



I threw my head back and tried to relax for a bit.

Sometime later, I stepped out of the bath and dried myself.

"You're phone is blowing up." Rose yelled from the other room, I chuckled and I went into the room to change before grabbing the phone to see I had tons and tons of messages piling up.

"You're popular, sis." Rose crept up behind me, "You should see the comments, they are so good, you have all these women with similar stories."

"I'm glad something positive finally came out of it." I jumped on the couch and tried to read each one, Rose went to grab the beers and we stayed up all night replying messages.

The rest of the week flew by with calls, interviews, meetings, a lot of women related to the story, people who couldn't open up about their stories finally had the chance to say their truth and make their peace with the people they wronged.

"Delilah, you have a call?" Rose said passing the phone, we are currently looking through apartments.

I took the phone with a phone,

"Hello."

There was a silence on the line, I could also hear breathing.

"Massey?" I took a lucky guess.

"I don't forgive you."

The call dropped. It lasted just a second but it gave me hope, and the strength to move on.

At least I thought it was all over and I was ready to move past this phase of my life until the crazy thing happened.
