THE LAST TIME

It was a six month relationship consisting mainly of sex...amazing sex. There were some dates here and there but they both preferred ordering takeout and ‘Blockbuster’ nights followed by passionate lovemaking sessions. It was clear their mutual attraction was mainly physical...they couldn’t seem to get on the same page about much of anything else. As with all relationships founded on sex, it started to fade when both realized they needed more than physical satisfaction and began to look in other places to meet their spiritual and emotional needs. The conversations became fewer and the ‘dates’ far and between. A month had passed since the last time they saw each other, both had moved on and were exploring new relationships. Out of sight, out of mind is true, especially when someone else is occupying the time they once shared together.

Coincidentally they separately decided to attend a casual ‘day party’ in the city one Sunday afternoon. She was there talking with a group of friends when he walked in. Her back was turned but her girlfriend immediately noticed him, noticing her. As he passed her girlfriend leaned and whispered to her that he had arrived. It’s always uncomfortable running into ‘the ex’ for the first time after the split, she hoped she could maintain her composure.

For the remainder of the event he couldn’t keep his eyes off of her, she pretended not to see him looking as she nonchalantly glided past him without looking in his direction or speaking. Sometimes you do not have to say a word or even make eye contact to identify a connection... there was no denying that their magnetic attraction between them was still there.

Later that evening she was still thinking about him. She decided to send him a simple message, “it was good to see you, hope you are well.” He quickly replied, “you too”. Although she was hoping for a warmer response to her contact she reminded herself that he was no longer in her life for a reason and it is for the best that she make no further attempts to contact him. That situation did not need to be resurrected. Let it die, she told herself.

Late the next evening he called, he hasn’t been able to get her off his mind and he wanted to see her. She felt the same so she consented to him coming over...one last time won’t hurt. As he was driving to her house he called...she answered quickly thinking he may have gotten lost, what he said caught her totally off guard. He has a new woman who lives with him and she is ‘expecting’.....but he still wants to come over. She experienced a sudden and extreme range of emotions...from angry, to hurt, to betrayed, to disappointed. He continued on his path there and insisted that he must see her one last time. Reluctantly she agreed.

When she opened the door he was already staring into her eyes. Without saying a word he followed her up to the bedroom. He sat next to her...she looked at him and started to cry. Even she was unsure of the source of her tears. She could accept that he moved on, but a baby? How long had this been going on? How did this happen so fast? So many questions swirled thought her mind. She was upset that he had obviously been lying to her about being involved with other women and she began to lash out at him. He grabbed her and started to kiss her tears. Overwhelmed with emotions she did not object to his advances...she wanted to be comforted. One kiss led to another, it was intense and passionate. She felt guilty for being with him while he had a woman at home but she believed that he was hers first and she deserved this closure. He got dressed and she walked him to the door. They shared a long hug and wished each other well. It was absolutely the last time and they both knew it. She went upstairs, deleted his number and went to sleep.

Three weeks later her period was late. The pregnancy test was positive and there was no doubt in her mind that it was his. She couldn’t call him so she sent him an email saying that they needed to talk. He responded “I’m married.”
