Love struck me at a young age. Bertie Cooper owned my heart from the second grade right up until the moment I ruined everything.
I didn’t deserve her, not after what I did, so I lied and pushed her away. I took the coward’s way out and I broke her heart. Little did I know, I sentenced the rest of my days to an internal prison of hell.
I now find myself at a crossroads with the blonde beauty before me once more. And she still takes my breath away. Life just keeps on torturing me…
I’ve never believed in second chances, but I’d give anything for one with her.
I shake my head at Bertie’s thoughtfulness. The woman’s heart is the biggest I’ve ever seen or come across. She’s something else. I down the pills then decide on another hot shower.
