It took years before my mother began to heal from his loss, so when she finally opened herself up to dating again, I was beyond happy for her. I loved my father, but I also wanted my mother to love again, to live again.
When my mother met Branden, the change in her was almost immediate. She glowed and sung around the house just like she used to when my father was alive and it made me happy to see her back to her old self. After a year and a half of dating, my mother allowed Branden to move into her home. The family loved him and he genuinely seemed to be an amazing man.
One day after work, I decided to stop by my mother’s home for our weekly check-ins. She was late arriving so it was just Branden and me in the house. I heard him talking to a woman, telling her how beautiful she was and how he had been admiring her from a distance but was too afraid to approach her. He said he wanted to get to know her better and that there was something about her that he simply couldn’t resist. He reminded this woman that she had his number and that she should use it some time. He whispered more sweet nothings in her ear and then the talking stopped.
