I mean, I tried everything, it’s not a decision I made lightly, believe me. But he never called when he was going to be late, never showed up for dinner on time, never remembered my birthday, our anniversary, or anything else that would have been nice to celebrate.
He said he wouldn’t give me a divorce, so I decided to take matters into my own hands, so to speak. He never saw it coming, of course. Men rarely think women will fight back. I mean what was I supposed to do? He left me no choice. It’s the only thing that made sense.
I wore one of my favorite gowns and read Shakespeare, while I waited for him to come home. I think he was surprised to see me sitting there. But his surprise didn’t last long, and neither did he. Still, that’s all in the past and it’s the future that’s important.
It’s been nine years, six months and four days, since I’ve been free. I live on an island where the sun shows up everyday. The ocean sings me to sleep at night and the sand is hot under my feet. I have two dogs and a cat, who laze around my tiny beachfront cottage and share my life.
Oh, one more thing. After my escape, I wrote a note to the company who made my kitchen knives and told them how happy I was with their product. They were thrilled and sent me a coupon for a set of special knives that work incredibly well on vegetables. I use them all the time.
Anyway, my name is Grace, and this is my story.
