Starting over (7/7)

The new job was great – until the boss’ girlfriend stepped in.

Phoi was taken aback to see his eyes were moist. “This business was supposed to be a joint venture between us . . .” he started, then took several deep breaths. “I thought I loved her, and she took advantage of that. Maggie just uses people to get what she wants.” Phoi nodded her head. She was delighted that Thabo had come to his senses at last.

Thabo took a long sip of his coffee. “Actually, I’m breaking up with her because of you, Phoi.” “Me, but . . .” she stammered. “You opened my eyes to Maggie. There’s more to a woman than just looking beautiful. You’re lovely but you work hard.” Phoi’s heart was pounding. But she didn’t want Thabo on the rebound. If he came to her when the storm was over, when he was totally free of Maggie, then that might be different. She would bide her time.

But for the moment, she knew only one thing: her planned move back to Cape Town was off – indefinitely.

The End.

Find Love!
