*This is a cryptic story

The other day my ex-colleague dropped by my work place.
In the past, despite our busy married life, we would often find time to go drinking together.

As it was sometime since we'd seen each other, we went to a nearby cafe to catch up on each other's lives.

I asked, "how are things with you? Behaving badly as always?"
In reply, he grinned and started telling me a story:

Since a year ago, he started dating a girl 10 years younger than him.
Last year, around the Christmas period, he spent the 22nd, 23rd, 24th and 25th of December in her apartment.

As expected, his action had a huge negative impact on his family life.
He actually had enough conscience to feel a twinge of guilt about leaving his little daughter at home, so he decided to go home on the 25th, around 7.00 in the evening.

But his girlfriend would not allow it, of course, and tried to stop him from going by throwing a tantrum. They had a huge fight and after much struggle he was finally able to shake himself free of her grip and get in the elevator to leave.

He was laughing as he concluded the story with:
"And guess what? When I stepped out of the building's entrance, she was there."

This is a true story (to avoid being identified, I've faked the details)

@CY, I agree with your answer. But why did he laugh?

CY said...

@strawberry, because he no longer need to deal with her and can start a new affair.

Gosh, I was thinking about yandere but when I read your comment it gives a chill up my spine.

Thank you all for your comments!
Yes, my guess is also that she jumped to her death.
And yes, he's laughing because he is basically a nasty bastard.

Have a nice day, and rest assured that more posts are coming! :D

@cy and saya, I was thinking he was originally going to use the stairs but she fell down them so he saw here there instead of her jumping to her death.

Hmm, my first thought initially was they were arguing on the rooftop and when he shook her off, she fell down from the building.

But after reading the comments, I have to agree that it makes more sense that the girl jumped to her death.

What a sad story. It's a great writing Saya-san. Thank you :D
