Broken is a story that is best read Chronologically to start from the beginning – Prologue
This is not a repeat post. But it makes sense to reference this again. I decided the next time I saw Hailey’s new guy I would offer him his own version of the “red pill”. Last night was that night. I saw him walking to the store on my evening stroll. I walk every morning and night. It’s an extra 6k steps a day and probably a great contribution to long term weight loss.
Anyways I walked up to him and asked if he was Hailey’s boyfriend. He looked stunned but also at the same time knew I was about to talk to him. He played a little dumb which is funny to me. I asked again. He finally said yes. I wonder if they have yet to get to a stage where she has labeled their relationship. Another narcissist move.
I reached out and shook his hand and said “I am Matt”. I said I think I noticed some curiosity the other day from you. And the answers are in here, handing him the piece of paper. He didn’t take it and said “I don’t want it.” I said “ok I just don’t want to be followed.” He said “followed?” playing dumb. I mean do they think I am stupid. I just asked do you want it. He passed. I walked away peacefully but abruptly.
I know she will paint me as crazy and obsessed. I mean who walks around with a piece of paper anyways. But I could give a shit. Also she called me 30-40 minutes after. From her business phone. She went down to expressly make this call. It’s on my phone records now as a missed call. I didn’t pick up. I am sure she wants answers. But right now I don’t want to give them to her. But just another piece of evidence to bury her.
Too much interaction with me threatens the truth to surface. Which is fine by me. If she is so panicky over a piece of paper maybe he will figure out I am not the one who is crazy.
The purpose was to stop the bullshit. I probably accelerated it a little bit. But I need to push it along so she stops with the crazy. And I want them to be questioning each other right now and that is what it will eventually be… What was on that piece of paper?
At the end of the day I want to make myself so radioactive she will stay away. However I just gave her potent fuel. So she will be going crazy on staying away and wanting more. Better her going crazy than me. I do really feel like just took all the weight I was carrying for her and dumped it on her doorstep. Now I walk away just like the narcissist. Drop a grenade and run away from the chaos and watch from a distance.
I know this might sound like a step too far to some. But my journey is more important than her lies. And she builds a life on them. I did what you are not supposed to do I confronted the narcissist and her world threatened to expose her. Now I walk away. Hopefully in peace. I will be vigilant for a few weeks. But this is hopefully the last Hailey ongoing story post I write. I doubt it but let’s hope it is or leads to it.
I haven’t felt this sense of relief in a really long time. I burned the bridge down so much I can’t cross it anymore and it feels pretty good actually.
