Steve started working more, and things began to get back to normal.
He was desperately trying to extract himself from Kathy’s grasp but she kept telling him she would fall apart if he left.
Steve had to travel 150 miles to work and stayed with family, or friends in the area. As I mostly keep my marital problems to myself it wasn’t until years later Steve would come to tell me he always had a bad feeling about my husband.
He knew something was not right between us and could see there was no love. During work one night he picked up Kathy, an old girlfriend from his teenage years.
Quadriplegic love lasts and I was about to find out just how long.
It was May10th 1999 and I had only been working as a taxi driver for a few days when at my local rank several drivers wandered over to introduce themselves.
On the 21st of September, it was Steve’s older brother Mark’s birthday.He pulled me into his arms, kissed me passionately, and said to me, “Right, I’m going to tell her it’s over, tonight, I can’t take it anymore.Sarah, it’s you I want, and if I have been reading this right, I know you feel the same.” I looked at him, “Steve, you know I do, I just didn’t know if I should say anything.” We did everything but make love right there in the car. He told me I was incredibly sexy, and he wanted me, so badly, but he had to end it with Kathy first.He had pretty much separated from his wife so began dating her.As soon as the relationship began he realized it was not going to work. I was there in ten, parked my car and got into his.Only because there wasn’t time, I wish there had been, no one had ever made me respond the way he did that night without actually having sex. We arranged to meet for breakfast/lunch the following day.
