My story is below:
I can’t believe it had been a year ago since Jacob stood me up. I couldn’t have been happier that night, mainly because he my very first blind date.
And my last.
In all my excitement I knew I was going to be that lady in red that the song was all about. I was sure that I was going to take Jacob’s breath away when he saw me.
It was not to be. He never turned up, and I could still feel the heartbreak as it ripped through my fragile body. As I did back then, I laid my head on the table in despair.
At that moment, Jacob walked in the room, and gave me a knowing smile. “Still haven’t forgiven me then?”
I didn’t raise my head from the table. “Never, my love.”
