Yesterday was a pretty tough day for me. Not only did I “have it out” with my father, I also got threatened to be taken to court by another father.
The whole thing is still feeling a bit surreal for me. Back in June, I met and completely fell for a young chap, aged 8, who was the son of the guy I was dating. Him and I finished a few weeks ago and yesterday I thought I’d like to send his son a present at Christmas. I decided to run the idea past his father and his reaction really took me by surprise.
He said no.
When I questioned it, I was told that when I finished with him, I also finished with his son. Worst still that apparently his son really missed me (he lives in the US). That broke my heart. And so I felt desperate to reach out to his son to let him know I hadn’t forgotten about him and would still happily be in his life if he wanted me to be. This is when I got threatened with being taken to court.
That infuriated me, and so I pushed I pushed, until his father really freaked out and begged me to leave him and his son alone.
As I still care for this guy, I decided to leave it alone. But my heart is filled with pain now when I think of this little boy who now believes I care none about him. How can he do this to his son? How can he deprive his son of my presence which I would quite happily give as this little boy really means the world to me?
