I'm very happy that Theran has a new girlfriend. I know he'd been unhappy for a while, and I really do want the best for him. So when he told me he was seeing someone, I was genuinely glad to here it. It's always good to hear someone you love is doing well. We're still great friends, of course I want him to be with someone who's good for him. So no bitter feelings there. Honestly.
He told me today that the two of them are going on a trip together. Cool, sounds like fun. But... they're going to Edinburgh, NOT cool. That's our place. That's where we met, fell in love, lived together for the first time. That's where things were perfect. I don't want him to be there with some other girl. The thing is, I wouldn't feel comfortable going there with a new boyfriend, at least definitely not on a first holiday. How can he? Isn't he going to be reminded of me at every turn? This was where we went on our first date. This is where we always met after work. This was our first apartment. This is the pub we went to every Wednesday for our pub quiz. This is the romantic restaurant we ate in on our birthdays. How can he just go there with someone new?
Can't they go elsewhere? Anywhere but there. That place is mine. Mine and his. And he's ruining it.
