It's "ours"

He tried very hard to change my way of thinking. It wasn't "his" home it was "our" home. It wasn't "his" money it was "our" money. I never really took to the word "ours" because when we would fight he would use it against me. "This is MY house, not yours so get out." "I spend all MY money on you and this is the thanks I get?" That's why the motorcycle was such a big deal to me. That was really OURS. He didn't have the best of credit because of some mistakes a few years back but that was the only thing I actually had. I used my credit to secure the motorcycle loan so WE could purchase a motorcycle for him to ride. I was so excited when we picked it up. It was hot and he looked even hotter on it. My kids would call it "Bumble Bee". It was a gorgeous yellow and black sport bike.

It was a beautiful evening so I asked for a ride on the bike. I was having trouble making him happy but I knew the bike would. We strapped on our jackets and helmets and headed out. He lived close to a winding, back road that was designed for a motorcycle.  He purchased an intercom system for the helmets so we could talk to each other while riding. The irony of that is most of the time when we were in the car together we didn't talk. But something about that bike and knowing it was OURS made me relax. I was always talkative on the bike when we were together. I loved every single thing about that bike. As we rode down the road he started to sing. It was one of my favorite songs at the moment and we sang the lines back and forth to each other. It was a moment in time when we were perfect together.

Little did I know that the motorcycle would be the last time I would see him...when we sold it.
