The day she said goodbye, she left a note on the kitchen table. It told him all of the things she’d been afraid to say, face to face. That he’d made her feel small, that he made her feel stupid, that he made her feel unsafe in her own home. That she was tired of covering the yellowing bruises of his anger, that she was tired of always having to wear the dresses he insisted she wear. As if scrubbing a floor, and dishes and gardening were easy in a dress.
She stood at that kitchen table, running her hand over the back of one of the chairs, realizing she had always hated that dining set and that now she could have one of her own. One that she would choose, and angle just so, in the new apartment she had gotten on her own. She was starting in a new place, with a new name, with clothes he had never allowed her to wear.
She had gotten a new job that he had never allowed her to have. She was crafting a life he had never allowed her to live. She had the keys to her car, tucked into the pocket of her blue jeans, the kind he said only pretty women could pull off. She walked out the front door of the house where they lived. They definitely hadn’t shared this house, so she wasn’t scared to leave it.
