HAPPINESS? MY FOOT

He’s coming today. After all these years. And boy, I’m happy!
Or, am I?
Why shouldn’t I be? I mean he’s my childhood friend.
Make that was.
The one I grew up with. The one who was my partner in crime.
The one with whom I frolicked around these cobbled pavements, escaped behind its stony walls, discovered secret caves and centuries-old hot water springs.
The one who played Cupid and helped me navigate past the byzantine lanes that led to my first love.
The one who later stole her from me and flew off, leaving me gazing at the stars.
