He felt a certain nostalgia for his confidence that lined his ego, “I’ve got this!”
Strolling down the aisle to marry, his macho image sent chills down his spine. This was it he thought. His bachelor pad was to be no more. Soon she would occupy it. She would impose her urges on him, and he couldn’t face it.
He turned his back and scarpered out of church needing to breathe freely, no strings attached, going back in time, or rather maintaining his sanity.
Bolsemar liked his lifestyle. All those rituals he had, like ripping open the curtains and windows when he awoke early to practice meditation, gasp for fresh external air, and feel alive treatment he gave himself. He knew she’d get up late, keep the bedroom like a bats den of darkness, and expect tea brought to her in bed.
He would be up bright and early, electric guitar out and plugged into the amplifier with mega-speaker-system built to let his emotions go, head bang, and go wild. He was into head banging big time.
He was doing her a favor. She didn’t know what she was letting herself into. Life’s too short to throw it all away. There has to be a way to get the best of both worlds.
He thought about it intensely, and then returned to the alter to await his wife-to-be (bride). He was helplessly in love!
