Oh goody I soooo need to vent. This started all six yrs ago, and I would just love to let it go but SHE won't let me forget.
I had just gotten back in touch with an old flame ("C"). We had been in like/love for a long time, since junior high, but we had always been too shy to take it much further than friends. Two years later I came home on break from college and we met again like it was the first time, only so much better! We talked for hours, he said he had been dating S. (a mutual friend of ours, her mother was our school principal and C. was working as a teacher) and had broken up with her a month earlier. He finally asked me out. We spent two months together. He said he'd never been so happy. We couldn't stand to be away from each other for more than a minute. We were kids again.
The summer ends, and I'm supposed to be back at college. He begs me not to go. I get a job at a little place in town, decide to stay with my parents for a semester while we see where this goes.
Then the Friggin Horibble Day. S's mother comes to my workplace. Says her daughter is pregnant by C and that I need to back off because now they're going to get married. I am shocked - we had just spent the night together 2 days before this. I ask S's mother when this all happened, she said "The plans were made last night". Then she says, "Call your aunt (the town florist)" so I do and sure enough, my aunt is baffled and tells me that S. and C. are in her boss's office discussing wedding details.
C. would not talk to me. His friends told me that he was too embarrassed, that he was just devastated by the news but that S's mother said she would ruin his career, and that he would lose his job as a teacher at her school (and probably lose any chance of getting another teaching job anywhere).
The worst part is that every few months, for the past SIX YEARS, S. or S's mother will send me photos of their happy little family life. S's mother is very wealthy, so they had a huge wedding, and S's mother gave them a house. S. "lost" the kid (my money says she was never really pregnant) a few days before the wedding apparently but voila! she got pregnant on their honeymoon so they had a kid anyway, that unfortunately got her looks pre-plastic surgery. She sends me pictures of their anniversary parties (where C. looks miserable), their Christmases, Easters, Halloweens, the kid's birthdays, school functions, everything.
I really really hate these people.
