Man leaves ex-wife with nothing, five years later she finds him sleeping in the trunk of his car – Today’s Story


A man divorces his wife and leaves her with two children, taking everything she has. Years later, she finds him sleeping in the trunk of her car.

Sally Burling met Oliver Corman in college. She was pretty, shy, an accounting student, and he was one of the most popular guys on campus, a promising footballer with a bright future.

After graduating, Sally and Oliver got married and prepared to move to New Orleans after she was offered a contract to play for a local team. But a month before the move, Oliver had an accident.

Oliver had crossed the street at a red light and was hit by a taxi. It was an accident that could have cost him his life, but for Oliver it was disastrous. He lost his future, the future he had planned all his life. A tendon tear in his left ankle ended his professional career and he now had to rethink his options.

Sally sat next to Oliver in his hospital room and held his hand. “Babies,” she said in her calm, determined way. “We are doing very well. We lose one dream, we dream another.”

Second chances must be earned.

Oliver closed his eyes and pretended to fall asleep. It was good for Sally to talk, she hadn’t lost everything she had fought for. He was angry at life, and for some reason he couldn’t explain, he was angry at Sally.

But Sally was right. She got a job at a major accounting firm, and Oliver was hired as an assistant coach for a successful high school team.

When Oliver’s parents moved to Florida, the young couple bought their old house, and after three years Sally became pregnant. She was in her sixth month and beaming with joy.

Sally gently placed her hands on her swollen belly and smiled. “It all went so well,” she sighed.

Oliver exploded. He threw his glass against the wall and shouted, “Did it go well?” I’m a gimp teaching brat kids with half my talent so they can get to the top. I have nothing but you who are complaining! didn’t go well!”

After that, Oliver apologized to a sobbing Sally, but the first crack had appeared in their marriage.

After Sally gave birth to twins, she returned to work. She was quickly promoted and received a fabulous raise. She earned three times Oliver’s salary and he hated it. Then he was offered a job coaching the local college football team.

Oliver’s situation has improved and he has regained some of his former status. He also started noticing pretty girls who came to games a bit too much.

“I think you should be home with the kids,” Oliver told Sally. “They’re starting school and I don’t want them to be key kids.”

“But, Oliver…” Sally said. “We need money…”

“Are you saying I can’t provide for my family?” Olivier asked curtly. “Am I some kind of loser? A leach?”

“Nope!” Sally shouted. “Of course not…”

Sally did her job well and was promoted. | Source: Unsplash

“You don’t like your children? Oliver asked. “Or is the money more important to you?”

So, of course, Sally quit her job and stayed home with the kids.

Oliver and Sally’s relationship grew increasingly strained. Sally suspected that Oliver was flirting with the female students and maybe even having affairs, but she was afraid to confront him. She had learned to fear his explosive temper and sharp tongue.

Instead, she made the best of her situation, and her children were a delight, until the day Oliver kicked her out. He just walked in one day and said, “Pack your things. You move.

“What?” Sally gasped. “I don’t understand!”

“I’m getting divorced, do you understand that? says Oliver. “Go out.”

“Children…” Sally shouted.

“You babysit,” Oliver said. “Get out.”

Sally packed her things and the children’s and they went to her parents. But the divorce brought her another surprise. The house was still in the name of Oliver’s parents, so she had no right to it. She walked out of the wedding with nothing.

“You have your children,” her mother said firmly. “You have your profession to lean on. You will be fine.”

And she was. Sally got herself another job. She wasn’t earning as much, but her abilities quickly earned her praise and a promotion. She was back in the fast lane, and this time nothing was going to derail her.

Five years later, Sally was a happy woman. She had a great job as a financial manager at a large company, her own home, and her children were growing up and healthy.

One Saturday morning, she decided to go shopping, so she picked up some cloth shopping bags from the kitchen and headed to her car. She opened the trunk to store the bags and had a huge shock. There was a skinny, dirty man curled up in his trunk, fast asleep! Sally screamed and the man woke up with a start.

“Please,” he shouted. “I mean no harm…”

It was then that Sally recognized him. “Olivier?” She gasped. ” What are you doing here ? Are you stalking me?

“Nope!” Olivier cried. “I didn’t know it was your car… It was so cold and it was the only trunk I could open…”

Oliver began having affairs with female students. | Source: Unsplash

Sally looked at him. He looked nothing like the handsome, athletic man she remembered. “What happened to you?” she asked softly.

Oliver’s eyes filled with tears. “College…I was accused of putting the kids on steroids…” he said. “It wasn’t true but…I had to sell the house to pay for a lawyer. I spent it all on legal fees and still spent a year in jail. Now nobody wants me engage.”

“I see,” Sally said.

“It all fell apart after you left, Sally,” Oliver moaned.

“I didn’t leave, Oliver,” Sally reminded him. “You fired me.”

Oliver looked hurt and replied, “You don’t understand what I was going through. I never stopped loving you, Sal, never!”

Sally’s expression softened. “Oh, Oliver,” she said sadly. ” How did we get there ? »

“Maybe… Maybe it’s a second chance,” Oliver said. “We could be happy…”

Sally hesitated. Then she said, “Get in the car, Oliver. I will help you.

Oliver climbed into the passenger seat with a confident smile. He knew he could charm Sally, he always had.

But half an hour later, Sally pulled up in front of a tall building. “It’s a homeless shelter,” she explained. “They’ll put you up so you never have to sleep in my car again.”

“But Sal! Oliver protested. “I thought we were going to talk…”

“There’s nothing to say,” Sally said. “You know what I noticed? You haven’t even asked about the kids, and you haven’t seen them in five years. We don’t want you, Oliver, and more importantly, we don’t need you. .”

Oliver walked out and watched Sally walk away. Then he entered the shelter and asked for a bed.
