Heartbroken Hotel

The bachelor pad spread generously across the entire upper floor. Stephen has lived here for five years and in England for ten.

The night of February 14, 2009, he came home with Thai food & a dozen roses. He wanted an intimate and romantic night of their favorite Rod Stewart music, quality time, & undivided attention. Everything was perfect….Malinga disappeared.. he was too perfect.

The woman, who stole his heart, broke it just as easily. He was devastated; and on the verge of a seriously dangerous mental breakdown. He moved for the well-being of himself, half way around the world.

  1. I would move half way around the world to get away from Rod Stewart music too! But seriously, sometimes it is better to learn this about a relationship sooner rather than later. Nice one.

    1. Haha, he does have that effect on people. Many of people move, “to begin a new life” or “for a fresh start” after something tragic. I have myself.
