Her parents tried to calm her. They reminded her of their talk with her the previous day.
She wouldn’t listen. She’d finished with him. That’s that! He was history.
They told her that if she didn’t love him, that if he didn’t matter to her, she wouldn’t be over-reacting like this.
She told them that she was going home. “You are all on his side,” she chided angrily, “Sorry Mum, I know that you’ve gone to a lot of trouble, but this has been the worst birthday I’ve ever had. As for Adam, he is totally dead to me.”
