Broken is a story that is best read Chronologically to start from the beginning – Prologue
Shortly after the driving up Hailey’s ass incident and her immediately coming back for a show of strength I may have set off unintentionally the longest stretch of non-verbal communication ever. Suddenly she was everywhere. I would pass her once a day at least.
She was making sure she was driving when and where I could see her. She started to hide her car more when she would visit her new guy. And was getting less frequent there. What was 2/3 times a week and overnights became once or twice no over nights. And then I started seeing her drive up my street.
Shit! What was going on? I would talk to Darcey about it and we knew something was coming. What was worse is I could literally feel the pull in my gut. Almost every day. There is something to a cord or bonding an empath creates to someone they want to love and heal. The toxic ones are the hardest too sever. I am not even sure I believe it but I certainly could feel it. And I think worse is I wasn’t ready to cut the cord yet. But why? I still have no idea.
But I was sensing something coming. I instinctively picked up the dating apps and there she was! Back on there! I am sure this guy has no clue. And I was wondering was this for me? I think this is a Hoover. There is far too much coincidence to have it not be that right? See this is the plausible doubt of these manipulations. Even I was questioning. Of course it was for me. Maybe she sees someone else on there and can move on but probably that is just an additional benefit.
She is quickly on and off maybe a few days on the app. Which clearly shows she wants me to know she is looking but doesn’t want to get caught. Two weeks later she appears on another app. But I saw her in the neighborhood tucked way in the back on a side street on Valentine’s Day. Just yuck. I know she can’t be alone on Valentine’s day. I was him just last year. Spending the night with me while she had other plans eventually to go back to James.
Throughout February I barely see her car parked anywhere near him or his building. But I see her sooo much. Then one day what is she doing… She is walking the street, like an exercise walk. She even starts passing in front of my building. I don’t know why I managed to see all these things. I wonder if she was doing it when I wasn’t noticing. But I saw her do it at least 4 times. Could you imagine doing this. Felt like she was trying to induce a chance encounter.
But I was also thinking what was she even doing walking this area. And then I discovered it… “I am moving downtown.” She did. She is now .4 miles north of me when at home .25 miles away south of me at work. And 500 feet from me when with the new guy. I was literally surrounded.
I even caught her driving in the neighborhood at strange hours while I was taking the extra street or two at night to see if she was around. This was coming to a head. I would estimate we saw each other about 20 times in the form of just passing by each other. Mostly while looking for each other.
Then it came, the read deal no doubt about it Hoover… She was on Tinder wearing my necklace. The very necklace she used to hoover me before. It was not even questionable. I sent the picture to Jennifer and Darcey and they confirmed yup that it wasn’t a picture someone like her would put there. And it was obvious what she was doing.
This was torture… What did I do?… What do I do?
