Going to meet your boyfriendâs family should be exciting.
Itâs a relationship milestone most girls fawn over, but not me.
It means coming face to face with my ex that I left high and dry in the middle of the night almost six years ago.
I wouldnât call what Lawson and I had a love story, or even a relationship.
It was tumultuous and frustrating more than it wasnât.
His lack of respect for me and my background left me bitter and angry in the end.
Now Iâm stuck facing my past, that never got any closure,
and damn it if there arenât brief moments that I forget why I went running.
If I let him get too close I know heâll try to burn me again
I canât let that happen when I have Reece to lose.
The battle between the two men is a decision I face alone.
One holds my heart, the other holds it hostage.
Sometimes love hands you a choice you never wanted to make.

âI could date you.â He blurts it like he wants to get it out of his mouth before he can take it back. Itâs my turn to laugh at him now. A disbelieving scoff comes from me and I just stare at him in horror.
âNo,â I reply âJust, No.â
âWhy not? It would work. The girls never bothered Veronica. Itâs only because they feel like thereâs a position to be filled.â
âThey may not have bothered her, but Iâm sure that didnât stop them from still being up your ass. Plus you donât want that. You donât want a relationship.â
âDonât tell me what I want, Farah.â For the first time he sounds irritated with me, or maybe just this conversation.
âI donât need you to do me any favors,â I tell him bluntly.
âGod-damn, Iâm not doing you a âfavorâ. Iâm trying to do myself one, Iâm not ready to let go of you just yet. I want more time with you and if that means we are dating, exclusively, then so be it.â Heâs breathing heavy, like saying that took a lot out of him. I just stare back, trying to read into what heâs doing. Is this reverse psychology?
He stalks towards me, slowly, hesitantly and he reaches out for my hand by my side.
âAll I can think about is being near you. Just let me have that.â His eyes are sincere, and I get the feeling he isnât allowed to feel this vulnerable very often. I nod to him.
âOkay.â Why did I say that? I didnât mean okay. I meant âno, not in this lifetime.â I meant âgo find some other poor soul to suck the life out of.â Heâs practically a dementor.
A smile lifts to one side of his face. âOkay.â His other hand lifts to my chin and he pulls my own mouth to his. His tongue finds my own and itâs warm and inviting. His touch feels like magic that I didnât know I needed.
