Do you have any particularly vivid or intense memories of ex-girlfriends? Or have you already left them in the past, consigning them to the dust of history? Or maybe you only met at the wrong time, and one day you’ll be reunited once more. No matter which category you fall into, GagaOOLala has put together a collection of six sapphic stories of old love that you’re sure to enjoy.
1. Encore Martha
Dressed in a dashing suit, singing in a pub and picking up younger women, Uncle Martha is going about her usual business when she suddenly encounters Mandy, the long-lost first love she still dreams of at night. As the two have coffee, Martha receives some “good” news—Mandy’s husband has passed away. Her uneventful life suddenly has new purpose as she decides that she wants Mandy back. But it’s been thirty years since they last saw each other, and reconnecting proves to be no small challenge. Will Uncle Martha be able to sing an encore with her first love, or will she be doomed to singing the same old tune of heartbreak, over and over again?
