    I had my own big love gone wrong and I too have healed, moved on and met my true love.

    But I always wonder what happened to her. I have wished for my own happenstance meeting. I am curious how her life turned out. I hope she is happy.

    As you are.

    That. Is a storybook ending.

    the very best coda imaginable. the best revenge really is living well.

  5. secret agent woman says:

    Okay. I am quite satisfied with the coda. 🙂

    I didn't catch all the parts to the series…I'll try to go back later.

    I rarely give credit to coincidences…I often see some doors closing as others open.

    First of all: Thank you, thank you, thank you for the new format. White print on black gives me brain damage. Also the new look is just cool.
    Back to the story:
    This has been a fascinating read and I'm so glad you got that closure. Good for you! "A wedding is being planned" really is a bizarre thing to say. We're in the midst of working on my daughter's wedding for October and I'm going to start saying that as a joke.

    Oh my goodness. There's nothing quite like seeing "what could have been" sitting clearly beside "what is" and having it all come into clear focus, with the glorious present casting the past into a deep shadow by comparison. Weird how that came about. Gave me a bit of goose-bumpy anticipation. What a fine ending!

  9. furiousBall says:

    yeah happy coda.

    so the orange background, the soft pretzels… you're a Flyers fan now? Woo!

    I am doing the congratulatory wave, here at my computer desk, in a big way. Of course, without others also doing the wave, it looks just kind of weird. But the sentiment is there.

    And that is what healing and growth look like! What they feel like too.
    Your descriptions throughout these posts of how the various other individuals made you feel and how Groom makes you feel today -excellent! A good way for someone coming off a bad or poor relationship to think about what was and helps to show others then what should be present. I'm thinking I should have younger daughter here read these posts and maybe it will give her some much needed insight as she begins a whole new walk in her life -having tossed the SIL out last week! (Yep! Were you ready for me to tell you that?)

    Love the coda, and how you ended up where you are in life. He and the "wedding being planned" life of his are perfect together. Those NBF guys don't know what they are missing-gotta feel just a little bad for them.

  13. Pam says:

    Ha! Loved that you sprung him rattling around the verges with a borrowed basket looking for a mushroom or two, coz the friends had a "previous engagement". Urghh! No great loss that's for sure. Cassie obviously left at home was she?

  14. actonbell says:

    A wedding is being planned! Wow, that's almost too good to be true–as in "mistakes were made." Poor Cassie, lucky you:)

    Great post, as usual.

  15. ds says:

    Of course, I had to go back and read the whole thing from the beginning. Quite a story–wonderful coda! The way you taught yourself to run is the perfect metaphor: you moved ahead, but NBF was jogging in place. Well done.

  16. Deborah says:

    This is amazing and funny and so fitting. What were the odds, indeed? And the way you poke fun at yourself? So very disarming, and very, very likeable.

    As they say, you can't make up stuff like this. Real life is better than anything in a novel, and you have so much material. What's keeping you?

    While looking for that Montana post a few days ago, my eye was caught by quiiiiiite a number of post titles that I want to read one day. Little by little, I hope to make my way through Jocelyn's Personal History.

    I probably shouldn't admit this, but it took me about three sentences before I realized that the background colour had changed. Much easier to read and made me not want to wait until Thanksgiving for some pumpkin pie.

  17. Green Girl in Wisconsin says:

    That is some good closure. And I agree with what Lime said.

  18. heartinsanfrancisco says:

    Wow. Do you know how rare such closure is? Do you? I love your reasoning when you rescinded the impulsive invitation in your own head, and can't help feeling that Cassie settled for so little. Thankfully, life had much better things in store for you!

    LOVE it!
    Hope the voice shared the brownie with the rest of you
