I had loved my husband, with all my heart. Despite what some people thought, I honestly did. When I first met Gerald, he was 75 years old, while I was only 19. He swept me off my feet. Most people assumed I was just after his cash, they couldn’t have been more wrong.

I worked 2 jobs to keep myself, and I never took a penny off him. When he asked me to marry him, I had accepted on the condition we had a prenuptial agreement. He was horrified at first. He assumed it was for his sake, when really it was for mine. I just wanted to shut everybody up.

I barely had anybody there on my wedding day. My mum attended, and her sister, my aunt Susan. But my dad had refused, along with all his side of the family. I lost most of my friends too. Except for Laura, she had stood right at my side in the church.

Laura and I had met at school; she was the best friend anybody could ever ask for. When Gerald passed away, on our 2nd anniversary, she had stayed with me, helped me through the pain. When she moved out, Alex, Gerald’s son, had moved in.

It was only supposed to be a temporary thing. He was moving back to town for a job, and he was saving to get his own place. I had told him to use his father’s money; after all I couldn’t bring myself to touch it. But just like me, he wanted to make it on his own.

2 years down the line, and he was still living with me. Not that I minded. Alex and I had gotten along from the start. He was 2 years older than me, which I did worry about before I met him. I worried he would see the gold digging whore that everybody else seemed to see.

I had been wrong, thankfully. He was a complete sweetheart. We got on so well. We liked all the same things, and he could make me laugh like nobody I had ever met before. After losing Gerald, he was the one who had made me realise, I could laugh again.

“You are allowed to enjoy the rest of your life Blake; dad would hate you being miserable”

He had said, and he was right. Gerald told me, when he was near the end, that he expected me to live a full happy life.

“You are still so young, my darling. Please don’t ruin your life. Enjoy it, embrace it, I want you to live and love”

“No, I will never love anybody else”

I had cried, lying in his arms, in our bed at home. He stroked my hair.

“You will love again, and I will be smiling down when it happens, because you deserve happiness, and love and marriage and kids. The things you wanted when we met, the one last thing I could never give you”

“Oh Gerald”

I sobbed as he held me tight. He died that night. It was coming up to the third anniversary of losing him, and I was just starting to get my life back on track, with the help of Laura and Alex. But love was the furthest thing from my mind; I could never imagine loving anybody else, ever.
