It seemed like everything was fine between Vitaliy and me until one day he didn’t come home sober and kicked me out. I decided to seek revenge.
I loved Vitaliy so much, I thought I wouldn’t be able to live without him. He meant everything to me – a friend, a boyfriend, a pillar of support. But I was foolish then and didn’t realize he wasn’t who he pretended to be. One evening, he came home in an intoxicated state, which surprised me as Vitaliy rarely drank, maybe just a little.
But that night, he started acting out, saying hurtful things to me, insulting me, and even attempting to raise his hand. I forgave him everything, understanding he was not in a rational state and that I shouldn’t be angry with him.
I thought he would sober up the next day and everything would be fine. But it didn’t happen. Because Vitaliy kicked me out of the house. I didn’t even understand how it happened. After all, he loved me, why would he treat me this way? He said I became tiresome to him, that he no longer wanted to see me. He claimed he had been wanting to tell me this for a while but didn’t know how, so he had to get drunk to find the courage.
Hearing those words was so painful. The next day, when he sobered up, nothing changed. He simply sent my belongings in a suitcase via a taxi. That’s when I moved back to my parents’ place. If it wasn’t for them, I can’t imagine what I would have done.
I was completely lost in this world. I had no desire for anything; I didn’t think about work, socializing, or even myself and my own life. I just carried out tasks like a robot. But gradually, my parents and friends helped me find my way back to a normal life. I started going out more, and I even met a nice guy. He took care of me, never letting me go home without a big bouquet of flowers.
And then one day, as I was returning home with a huge bouquet from our date, I saw Vitaliy near the entrance. I pretended not to recognize him, and proudly walked past him, radiating happiness and joy. In that moment, Vitaliy realized what he had lost forever.
