5th July 2008
Met Angus this morning and told him of my decision to leave. He begged me to stay, said I’d become an invaluable member of his ‘team’ and that he would offer me a promotion, officially recognizing my sleuthing duties. His words were tempting, but I explained that I thought it was in the best interests of myself, his family, our friendship and his business if I left now. Angus is a sensible man and he saw the logic in my words. Reluctantly, he accepted my resignation and apologized for revealing his feelings about me. I said I’m not the woman for him, which is true, and that he had too much to lose by embarking on an affair. He agreed and we parted as friends. Angus offered to provide a reference and told me I was free to call on him at any time for help and advice. I said I’d keep in touch, and I will. Very depressed tonight. Not sure what to do next.
