If you think Breaking Up is hard to do…
Mallory loved Kevin. He was everything she had been looking for her “whole life.”
They had been hot and heavy for an entire year when the ruse was off the bloom – in a matter of speaking.
Mallory had been on her best girfriend behavior the whole time. She was the perfect girlfriend and worked on it. Meanwhile, Kevin was comfortable with her, enjoyed her -for the time being. She had no idea he was so cavalier. She assumed they were both on the same page.
They had attended three weddings together and each time Mallory imagined herself the bride. She had been building a “My Wedding” scrapbook since high school. She knew exactly who would attend, what she would wear, when it would take place (Winter) where (her parent’s country club.)
She and Kevin were so blissfully comfortable together -they were just a perfect couple- so she thought.
On Christmas, she really expected The Ring to be under the tree, or in her stocking or in his hand when he was on one knee. It didn’t happen. As a matter of fact, Kevin flew to his parents home for Christmas made plans to return for New Year’s Eve.
This was disturbing for Mallory. Her friends chimed in and commented this was odd behavior and her parents inquired as to Kevin’s disappearance.
Denial 101: Mallory had mastered the art of denial early on. She very easily made excuses about Kevin’s disappearance. It was nothing. He hadn’t seen his parents in ages – this was necessary.
When Kevin returned from his trip, he called Mallory and said the most dreaded four words: “We need to talk.”
True Confessions: Ms Perfect Girlfriend didn’t like Kevin’s “You are too good for me,” speech. And she told him as much.
