SD15 nearly set the table on fire
We were just starting dinner at her grandparents house. She picked up a napkin and said “should I set this on fire?” It was like slow motion for all of us - everyone saying “nooooo” and reaching out. She stuck the napkin into the candle centrepiece and the thing lit up. Then she dropped it onto the linen tablecloth. Her dad and granddad managed to get it into a plate and smother it. She laughed the whole time.
Her grandfather stormed off into the kitchen saying “she was laughing!” And “she needs to go home!” And my BF did nothing. And SD15 said nothing. I was in shock. I said words to her about fire danger and how we could have been hurt, and then I went out to the kitchen with grandpa. It was either laugh, hyperventilate, or cry, so I did the first two simultaneously. He poured us both another glass of wine.
This doesn't feel real anymore. How are people like this?
I’m done with her, by the way. My BF and I live separately. This past weekend was my big disengagement, and the first time I told her “no”. This was a cry for attention from her.
