Flinch

After 40 years of marriage, my dad announced he was leaving my mother for her sister.

My mom was on vacation with her boyfriend’s when she heard the news

she didn’t flinch.

My mother knew for years; she made her moves silently as my dad paraded my aunt publically.

My dad didn’t get the reaction he was hoping; He was mad my mom wasn’t upset.

My mom left my dad when she first found out, he never realized it.
