Part 37 The Victorian Trip


There were many life changes for Gia over the next few years, renovating a house, having a baby. Then buying a bigger property. An old Victorian house with history, plenty of space and potential. A dream home, their forever home. Renovating again, another baby.

Moving and unpacking between baby feeding and naps. Love, so much love, happiness, sleepless nights, diapers, first words, crying, laughing… Caring for children, teaching them and learning from them. Worrying about them, making sure they were happy and content. Read More…

Gia waited nervous with anticipation for Lokie’s reply. What would it be? She had a tab with her inbox open, so she could quickly switch between the research for her assignment and her email.

The uncertainty and possibilities were intoxicating. What will Lokie’s reaction be? What will he do?

Part 32 The Enemy Inside


15th January 1996

It was well past Christmas again, and Gia was quite successfully avoiding Luke. Something happened to Gia that night after Lokie’s “payback.” She was so furious for feeling so foolish, for being so crazy obsessing about him all these years for nothing. Even though it was obvious, that he returned the insult to her as a payback, because that’s what they did, she was hurt.

And now she knew exactly how hurt he must have felt then. She didn’t realize it before, even thought she saw the pain in his eyes. This is how it felt to be on the receiving end. At least he said sorry to her straight away, which Gia never did. Read More…
