We had been together off and on for two years now. I finally had gotten my driver’s license. For christmas that year I got my first car. It was a 1985 blue Sunbird. I thought I was so cool I had a car that was born the year I was. I did not care if it was brand new or if it was a beater upper. It was mine.
The agreement for me getting the car was I had to pay the insurance and the gas for it. Which was fine because I had a job that I had been working at for a while. I was on top of the world. My life had literally just started for me. I could go where ever I wanted to go. I did not have to rely on my parents anymore.
I was able to hang out with friends and go see my boyfriend when ever. Since I had a car I was finally able to get a cell phone so my parents could reach me and also if I had any problems. Things where great. I drove to school and it was easier to skip school. Which I will admit I did more than I should have.
Now that I had more freedom and my own car my boyfriend was not happy. He no longer knew where I always was. Which was hard for him because he liked to be in control. He liked to know where I was, who I was with and what I was doing. Although I was either at school, work at home or with him. I was not allowed to hang out with other guys let alone have guy friends. If I did then to him I was cheating on him. It did not matter who it was or what their sexuality was if it was the opposite sex it was a no go.
Little did I know me getting a car was going to make our relationship harder. He had no trust in me and there was no reason for that. I never did anything to him unlike he did to me. He did not like the fact that if we got into an argument that I could leave at any time and there was nothing he could do.
One time after he had finally got his own car we got into a fight and I left. I had went to Walmart and he followed me. I was turning and he slammed his car into mine 2 times one side making a dent and then ran into me on the other side also putting another dent in it. How could I not see that this relationship was toxic and that I needed to get out of it and stay out. Well we broke up but it did not take long for us to gravitate our way back to one another for more pain and suffering.
