To be fair, he did tell me so.
He warned me in advance that things might not be as expected, and that he has an unfortunate penchant for leaving people by the side, forgetting them, tossing them aside as if they are worthless.
It seemed so unbelievable that he could be like so. He appeared to be a likable, kind person, who would never do such a thing. Love them and leave them.
He did tell the truth. He was honest and transparent. There was no disillusionment from him.
He spoke about his social ways, his friendship faux pas.
The undimmed and strengthened hope whispered, This could be it.
The only words to be heard from him now are, "I told you so".
