Mandy didn’t understand why she had to be the one to change. She wasn’t the one who was too controlling, lying constantly or cautiously insulting.  Maybe she was being too negative.  Maybe her criticism had driven him over the edge. Made him unusually vulgar and insolent towards her. Yes. Maybe it was all her fault that he was like that.
But for the life of her, she didn’t get the part where she had to be the one to truly change. Try as she might he utterly refused to notice her subtle compliments when he had on her favorite blue tie or when she dressed up nicely for him and he didn’t even notice the extra dab of pink lipstick that she added to her plump lips. He didn’t even kiss her goodnight anymore. They were a lost cause. She now knew it as she slid against the cold wall to sit on the floor of her bedroom. There was no use grappling to salvage something that was already dead and gone. It was utterly exhausting. So she wasn’t going to change. Not for him or anyone else. “She’d leave.” That was her final resolve as she hurriedly stood up and swayed on her feet, unbalanced, then scurried over to her closet and started packing. She’d leave him.Let him come home from work or wherever he went nowadays to an empty house. She’d leave him.
