Let’s start our festive countdown … tick tock … the bomb is ready to explode.
Christmas Eve at work
May came with her husband. Husband is elegant, eloquent, and friendly. How did it happen that such a handsome man is with such … grey mouse? May is afraid of her own shadow, sometimes she does not come to work, she cries when she thinks that no one sees her. Her husband ‘secretly’ pointed out that May is depressed and generally does not cope in life, but that he loves her very much and takes care of her. An angel, what an absolute angel. He is so patient with her. He always drives her to work and picks her up from work, sends sweet text messages that he misses her and that he loves her like no one ever will. Despite his busy schedule he often rushes to her office, unexpectedly, to bring her flowers. Prince from the fairy tale. And she’s always so thankless, so dissatisfied. Her husband recently pointed out that May was drinking. That she is suffering from some form of depression. But, in all honesty, what is she so unhappy about, really, ungrateful bitch. She has no friends or acquaintances, her husband provides for her, buys her clothes, advises a hairstyle. He is the soul of the party. What does he really see in her?
tick … tock, tick … tock, tick…tock
May came home from shopping. She bought great delicacies to prepare her husband’s favourite Christmas dishes. She also carefully checked the prices to avoid overspending. The husband gave her a specific amount of cash for shopping, May knows how much he does not like her to overspend. She absolutely cannot be trusted with their finances, but not to worry… her husband is so resourceful and takes care of her and her earnings, because she would definitely make them both bankrupt. Thanks to him they have a beautiful house, stylish furniture, they go on wonderful luxurious holidays.
The husband also makes sure that she looks good and eats healthily, he set up for her a special diet and training and regularly checks her weight and monitors whether she looks appropriate, so that he doesn’t need to feel ashamed when they go out together. At all those corporate festive meetings, he is always so proud that he has such a beautiful wife, he always praises her in public. She complaints sometimes that she needs to be careful not to look other men in the eye too much, because her husband is terribly jealous. He knows her past. He knows she had a couple of partners before she met him and that obviously makes her promiscuous …. but now since she is with him, she has changed. She no longer behaves like a whore. Now she is a decent woman. She’s his wife, she’s someone.
