I was working with law enforcement when my ex-husband left me. He had already moved out but I was naive, thinking that after I graduate I'd move in his new place. When he came to visit we had sex, and he showered and told me he had to go. I asked him if he'd stay for dinner, but he replied that he'd rather not, because he had gone to the courthouse earlier that day to file for divorce. I was naked in bed when he said that.
I don't know how long I laid there. But when I finally got myself dressed, it was in my uniform, and the cop codes where in my back pocket. Later during my shift I wrote a letter to myself behind it. I keep the codes with my divorce papers to remind me of my resolve and determination to not get beat by it. Needless to say, that resolve worked wonderfully over the past years.
