I had been in a relationship for around a year and a half until recently. During that year and a half, I loved her, and she loved me, and it was the most fun I’ve had in a long time.
But Enzie hates her guts.
I did keep asking her why she hates my girlfriend so much. But she never gave a legitimate reason; more like:
“Because I do.”
“I have to hate SOMETHING, don’t I?”
“She looks at me funny.”
“I’ll beat you up again if you keep asking.”
And that’s where I stopped, generally.
I always had a feeling that she knew/could sense things that I couldn’t, and I was getting more and more confident over time that that was the case and that she knew something about my girlfriend that I didn’t, and she wasn’t telling me.
Every time I talked about my girlfriend, Enzie would groan, increasing in volume until I was too unsettled to continue. Every time I was hanging out with my girlfriend, Enzie would never show up, or brood the whole time until I went home. She makes it clear to me that she hates her.
But she never suggested or tried to convince me to leave her.
What’s that about?
But I guess she didn’t need to. My girlfriend broke up with me recently. And as I became numb to positive sensation for a while, Enzie just hangs around; regularly glancing at me. She wouldn’t smile but there’s a way about her presence this time that writes SMUG all over her face.
“I told you so.”
