I love helping my sister with her kids, don’t get me wrong, but a girl has got to have her own friends, you hear me? Especially me, a princess raised to be a friend of the world.
And can you blame a girl for wanting to enjoy a party? Being a princess on Sixam, I was never allowed to party, so when Bella invited me to a dance party at the ruins I was there faster than one could say ‘dance party’.
To think of what some Earth humans would wear to dance parties! I wasn’t dressed right, but I still managed to enjoy myself.
“That’s Sixam there, Dominic,” I had become fast friends with the older man, and when he asked me about my planet, I quickly pointed it out. “It’s a nice planet, when not torn between sides during war. If you ever leave Earth, you should see it.”
Being older, Dominic had been around the block and I confided in him the dark secrets of my marriage to Shin (and the reasons why I never should’ve married him). He also confided in me his unhappiness in his own marriage.
One thing led to another, and before I knew it…
“You excite me, Lynn,” Dominic’s voice was warm with emotion. “I have grown to care for you, these past few hours…”
The thought of still exciting a man after having a child and a divorce was all I needed to hear to make my heart beat fast. One look in his brown eyes and I was lost.
Dominic smiled brightly at me as we left the bush. “You are one fabulous woman, Lynn.”
I knew it, and I was glad he saw it. That was one thing Shin never saw in me. Shin never truly loved me.
“Thank you, Dominic, for showing me someone can truly care for me.”
It had only been a matter of hours since we’d met, but the time had flown right by, and Dominic had a wife to get back home to. I hugged him tightly one last time, for I knew I’d never see him again.
Now all I have are the happy memories of a man I believe truly loved me.
