“Payton if you would let me explain everything. Maybe we could…”
Dylan reached out for my hand, locking his fingers with mine. “Maybe, what? Maybe I could forgive you for leaving me? You walked away from your violent marriage, I understand that. With who he is, I completely understand that, but you left me too. Do you have any idea what I went through every day? I was punched in the back of head because I put his work shirts in the dryer. He beat my back when I was twelve, because I started my period. I had to use my lunch money to buy my first bra because he refused to get me one. I was forced to lie to everyone when I was fourteen; he broke my leg because I forgot to get milk at the grocery store. He pushed me down and repeatedly kicked me in the ribs because I didn’t know how much sugar he wanted in his coffee. I could sit here going on and on about all the times I was punished and beaten.”
Dylan handed me a small box from him. I took it, looking up into his eyes; he looked back at me nervously. Everyone seemed to be watching in anticipation. I slowly undid the bow, stealing the occasional glance at everyone staring at me from around the room. When I lifted the lid I was a little confused and then it hit me exactly what the contents met. There on top was a Transformers bandage and under it was a heart locket. I opened it and on the inside the engraved words gripped my heart with such force. All Better Beautiful, Love Dylan…
I turned to him and hugged him as I cried into his shoulder. “You remembered.”
He whispered into my ear, “Of course I remembered. That was the day I captured the heart of a very beautiful girl, and now she’s captured mine.” I felt such love for him at that moment, I knew that I would never be capable of loving any man the way I loved him.
No matter where my life took me, I knew I wanted to have Dylan by my side through it all. “You even remembered it was a Transformers bandage. I didn’t remember that until I saw it.” He kissed me slowly and sweetly.
Until we heard Carter say, “Hello Dude, we’re still here.” We had forgotten that we weren’t alone.
About the Author
I enjoy writing and have always enjoyed creating little stories in my head. Since I was very young I like creating scenes and deciding the outcomes. I have just recently decided to transfer them onto Amazon and share with others. I enjoy created stories then expressing those onto paper. I hope you enjoy my stories and I appreciate everyones interest. I enjoy writing romance with a little twist here and there to make it interesting. I love angst and tension within my stories. I try to keep it realistic to everyday life and our daily struggles that we all may face. Everyone loves a happy ending and in life that is not always the outcome. So why not live in a fantasy world where happy endings do happen. It is easy to wrap yourself up in a story and imagine that life. Take a ride through my imagination with my stories. I hope you enjoy. Thank you so much.
