In Love With You
"Emerson?" I stood staring. I
couldn't move. I couldn't breath. I couldn't talk.
Only stare. About a year an a half ago I was engaged to the man
in front of me. His name is Steven Larson and he almost ruined my
life. Let me give you a little back information. About 4 years
ago I met Steven. He was a senior and I was a junior who had
fallen crazy in love with love. When Steven asked me if I wanted
to see a movie I was afraid it was a joke. But we went and had an
amazing time. Each day I fell more in love with Steven and was
under the impression he was in love with me, too. He proposed the
night after I graduated high school and I thought we were going
to be together forever. However, he apparently had another thing
in mind. And by another thing, I mean another girl. Candace went
to college with Steven and apparently they had been seeing each
other for most of our relationship. Not all the time. Only when
we would argue or when he would become angry because I
wouldn't sleep with him. He would go to Candace and she would
make him feel better about himself by making herself low and
vulnerable. I was so in love with him that whenever I found
out about him and Candace, believed him when he said it was over
between them and continued planning our wedding as if nothing had
happened. But a few months later, Candace was pregnant and the
baby was Steven's. He called off the engagement left me all
"I..uh.." That was the
brilliant thing I was able to say to him.
" Emerson, lets try to put the past
behind us and be professional," he said.
" Okay," I said.
We sat there in silence,
neither of us saying a word.
"Okay, so I looked over your
appli.." I interupted him saying
"You know what? I can't
do this." I grabbed my bag and practically ran out the
door. Tears were springing up in my eyes as I finally made
it to the car.
Steven stared at the door of his office he thought to himself,
"Why did I let her walk out of my life yet again. I love
you, Emerson. Always have, Always will."
(Okay Wittians what do you think
about Cahpter 2??)
