The Presence of a Picture on My Supervisor’s PC Devastated My Existence

Tasha’s day started with a shock when she received a text message from her fiance Jonathan that abruptly ended their relationship. The emotionless news shattered Tasha’s world and left her confused and heartbroken. With their wedding just two months away, the sudden split added insult to injury and Tasha struggled to come to terms with the situation.

As Tasha tries to navigate the emotional turmoil, she finds herself at her workplace trying to maintain a sense of normalcy amidst the chaos. However, her world was rocked even more when her supervisor, Mr. Clark, called her into his office. Little did she know that this meeting would reveal the shocking truth about her ex-fiancé and her boss’s personal life.

When Tasha wakes up, her fiancé sends her a threatening text that ends their relationship. However, when he arrives at the office, he discovers that there is much more to the story. Is it just a coincidence or is there another reason?

Imagine that your fiance unexpectedly dumps you via text message.

Tash, we can’t be together anymore. Please do not try to contact me. It’s done.

Right at that moment. What about our wedding?

In just two months.

Naturally, I was a mess. Jonathan and I dated for years. However, I knew I was going to have a busy week as it was Monday morning. I was too poor to curl up in a corner and cry.

Jonathan could not influence my work.

Except for my job, everything else changed with the breakup text.

“Life goes on despite a broken heart, Tasha,” I told myself as I looked in the mirror.

So I tried to keep my head down and focus on my task. I felt compelled to call Jonathan and ask the reasons for this sudden separation. However, I had to brag.

A few hours later, I got a call from Mr. Clark, my supervisor, while I was working at my desk. He was a formidable individual who preferred to work from his cozy home office.

I picked up the phone and heard his voice: “Tasha!”

“Good morning sir, how may I help you?” I asked with a sip of cold coffee.

“I need you to use my computer to access some files. Could you please forward them to me now?”

“Of course,” I replied, getting to my feet quickly as if he was watching me.

“I’ll email you what I need,” he replied. “Thank you!”

Not much, I thought. Still, I had to keep myself busy because I was thinking about Jonathan all the time.

Mr. Clark’s office exuded elegance. The long couch he owned was covered with pillows. I just wanted to curl up on the couch and sleep.

How could Jonathan be so cold? Message? I found it incomprehensible that he would waste so many years of marriage on a text message.

I couldn’t make any sense of it at all. We did well, in my opinion. Fantastic, even. A few days ago I finally said yes to my ideal outfit.

And right now?

The dress needed to be returned.

I turned on Mr. Clark’s desktop by pressing the power button and waited for it to boot.

I felt the weight of the world on my shoulders and leaned back in my chair. I had to catch my breath.

When I logged in after turning on my computer, I got the worst shock of my life.

This restaurant that Jonathan and I frequented was featured on my boss’ screensaver. He even proposed at our regular table, right there.

I saw it as soon as I found the folder I was looking for.

Jonathan’s expression.

My boss was there smiling back, along with Jonathan and two very attractive women. At the company Christmas lunch, Mr. Clark introduced us to a woman who I knew was my boss’s wife.

Jonathan’s eyes were smiling as I looked at him. The woman’s hand held his as he wrapped it around her waist.

Jonathan had a happy expression on his face.

Panicking, I called my employer from his office.

“Sir, why on earth is my ex-fiancé on your desktop?”

“What do you think?” asked Mr. Clark. “My wallpaper?”

“Yes!” I cried, aware of the raised pitch of my voice.

“Ex-fiancé, did you just say that? Tasha?” he asked frantically.

Indeed! Jonathan was my fiancé until this morning,” I remarked. “How do you know him?”

“My son-in-law is going to be the man soon. Next weekend, my daughter Kelsey and he are tying the knot.”

He was taken aback.

“Tasha, I’ll see you in the office soon. Wait for my arrival,” he said.

When Mr. Clark arrived at the office, he served each of us a whiskey from his top shelf.

Then he told me about his personal life. Mr. Clark announced that Kelsey, his daughter, recently got engaged.

She introduced me and my wife to Jonathan about a year ago. And on her birthday this year, they announced their engagement. My wife was more involved in the wedding plans than I was.

He hesitated and took a drink of his drink.

You just swiped your card, I said, instantly regretting my actions.

Mr. Clark raised an eyebrow.

I sincerely said, “I’m sorry.” I had a terrible day. Please continue.”

“Jonathan came over for dinner last week and he and Kelsey announced they were moving their wedding date.

I just stared at the hole in my stockings and said nothing.

He asked, “You had no idea?”

“Not at all. I didn’t live with Jonathan.”

Our wedding coming up in two months was the only reason we wanted to move in together.’

Mr Clark stated: “You have to make a lot of tough phone calls.”

I nodded.

Mr. Clark then asked me extensive questions about Jonathan, including his full name, residence, and date of birth. Even though his face was staring at us from the computer wallpaper, he wanted to be sure we were talking about the same person.

My boss went into protective father mode after the initial shock. We introduced Jonathan to Kelsey after he called her.

Seeing her cry allowed me to finally let go of my feelings.

Mr. Clark, not sure what to do, gave us both handkerchiefs.

He suddenly remarked, “You girls need to teach him a lesson.”

We decide to have a family meal and catch up and Mr. Clark invites Jonathan to the restaurant.

“He wouldn’t turn down a free dinner,” Kelsey remarked.

Mr. Clark said, “I’ll meet you there,” as I left.

At home, I took an extremely hot shower and could feel the water on my skin. Excited to show Jonathan that I wasn’t disappointed by his betrayal, I prepared to disguise myself.

Dinner was served at our favorite restaurant and it was filled to the brim with all the memories I had of Jonathan.

It was priceless to see the look on his face when he saw me sitting with the Clarks. I was reluctant to speak. I was afraid I might crush the mask I put on.

Mr. Clark took the initiative and told the truth: we found Jonathan.

“You don’t believe this,” Jonathan said. “I love you both.”

Kelsey held my arm the whole time while Mr. Clark was talking like she was holding onto her life.

Finally, Jonathan left our lives by passing away. Bonded by our shared suffering, Kelsey and I vowed to help each other. Additionally, Mr. Clark urged me to take a break.

“Tasha, paid time off,” he mumbled. “Your work will be waiting for you.”

For a change of pace, I took time off and rented a small cabin.

Well, I’m done with Jonathan for now. Yet my heart still aches.

How would you react in such a situation?
