Part 4

I was beginning to get a headache, standing there sipping fruit juice [which a dour Hank had managed to procure me on Mel’s instructions].

Suddenly, the sound of applause; I turned as Mel nudged Jenanie and said, ‘There’s brad’s ex step dad- the millionaire!”

I barely registered what she was saying as I watched the man who limped to the centre of the platform.

The man I knew as Gaston…the man who had made violent love to me for one night and left me clamoring for his touch, against my better judgement…

I shrank back, trying to hide behind Hank as Brad’s step father began to speak. That heart breakingly familiar voice from that single night of passion, raspy and gruff, thanking the people who had turned up to wish him well.

He can’t see me, I told myself, and peeked from behind Hank. With a shock, I realized that I was hungry to catch a glimpse of him. And with it came the thought, was he married? And to whom? A feeling of intense jealousy overcame me and I almost sobbed. Luckily, my friends were too tipsy to notice and I thrust my fist into my mouth to stop myself from crying out.

The sound of renewed applause. I realized that he was leaving the podium and preparing to mingle with the guests. Alarmed, I tried to think of what to do.
