Eek! I thought this posted yesterday but it didn’t! Sorry about that!!!
Dot, dot, dot:
I found out she was leaving from her blog.
I wasn’t quite sure how I felt about that. I knew I’d miss her but I think I was more upset by the fact that for the first time in over a year she hadn’t emailed me to tell me herself.
She doesn’t care about you anymore, a colleague had told me. In fact, she detests you, he added.
Was that true?
I needed to find out.
I couldn’t email or message her because she’d blocked me on all forms of social media, but I still had her address. I didn’t think she’d talk to me so I decided to leave her a note.
“Hi,” I began. “It’s me. I heard you’re leaving.”
I didn’t know what else to say, so I simply left it, dot, dot, dot and signed my name.
I think deep down I knew she wouldn’t answer.
Then again, maybe she’d surprise me like she always had.
