It was complicated, it was also just the beginning.
A simple choice.
There is always that one moment in life where things could have been different. That one moment where you could have chosen a path that would lead you down a certain road.
A different life.
It was easier to pretend that we were still best friends, and that she was my girl and I was her boy.
Pretending was better than knowing the truth...
I. Ruined. Us.
I had her.
I lost her.
I love her.
All I did was complicate us.
My brown eyed girl sat on our blankets with her arms wrapped around her knees, hiding her face. The tiny frame that I adored so much shook uncontrollably, only heightening the deepest sobbing that escalated with each passing second. It was such an intimate moment, not to be shared with anyone, especially me. Alex didnât cry. I watched her bawl for the first time in my life. I had never seen anyone cry like that before, and it shook me to my core, slicing me whole, and making me feel like I was dying. Carving a memory that I would take to my grave.
There was no going backâ¦
No do overs.
What I witnessed tonight would be my purgatory; I would now close my eyes and forever see her falling apart in front of me. Shattering before my very own eyes and I found it hard to breathe.
Hard to move.
My feet were glued to the goddamn floor as she continued to weep, sob, bawl, violently sucking in air that wasnât available. I accepted it all; each tear that fell from her face becoming pieces of me. Circulating through my veins and blood, it flowed endlessly, a river of her sadness and sorrow and of my broken promises. No beginning or ending to her cries, just an infinite current, flooding the hole where my heart should be. The shadow of her trembling petite body reflected off the walls, leaving a trail of regrets in its wake.
Growing up in a small town you overheard a lot of things. People talking, stories told, town gossip. You listened a lot. You learned a lot. Tourists, townies, friends, and especially family all shared wisdom and advice that you think you will never need.
Bunch of bullshit.
They say you have that one moment in life where things could have been different, that one moment that changes the course of your life or the direction you could have taken. That one moment that could forever change you and everything you wanted to be true, everything you wanted to believe.
One simple decision could alter your entire future.
My entire world.
I would forever remember this moment for the rest of my life. This is the moment that changed everything. This is the moment where I took another direction, another road that led me to my own demise.
My own regrets.
I should have walked in there. I should have apologized. I should have begged for her forgiveness. I should have promised that I would never hurt her again. I should have done whatever it took to make her look at me the way she had our entire lives.
But I didnâtâ¦
I did none of those thingsâ¦
Nothing was said between us.
I was a coward and couldnât do it. I couldnât see her like that. I couldnât look into her eyes and know that I had hurt her. That I had disappointed her. That I ruined her love and lost her respect for me.
The boy who promised he would never hurt her.
The boy who swore he would always protect her.
The boy who vowed he would never let anything happen to her.
That same boy was me.
I was the reason she was bawling.
I was the reason she was hurt.
I was the reason she was broken.
She knew the truth. It had finally caught up to meâ¦ I shattered her illusion that I was hers. I ruined the one good thing I had in my life. The girl that owned my heart was bleeding out for me in a way that I had never seen before. The house was no longer our safe place.
I had brought my hurricane with meâ¦
I couldnât risk the possibility of losing her permanently if I walked in there and admitted my truths. She wouldnât love me anymore, she wouldnât look at me the same anymore, and she wouldnât be mine anymore.
My brown eyed girl.
The girl that I had loved all of my life.
The same girl that I would love for the rest of my life.
I gave her the only comfort I could in her moment of despair. I turned around and left. I walked down the stairs and got into my truck. I turned the engine on and drove my sorry ass home. I took a shower and never once looked at myself in the mirror. I pretended that nothing changed. That I didnât cause her pain, and that she didnât know the truth. That I didnât see her sobbing and that she wasnât even bawling to begin with. That we were still just best friends, and that she was my girl and I was her boy.
My Half-Pint and her Bo.
It was better than knowingâ¦
I ruined us.

It was only a matter of time until the truth came out.
I never thought it would come to thisâ¦
I tried, God knows I tried to stay away from her but eventually I crossed that line and broke that trust. I could no longer go back and I sure as fuck didnât regret a single moment of it. I knew there would be hell to pay, I knew the wrath Iâd be facing but I would willingly take the burns and scars just to have the love of my best friend's sister.
If there is one person Iâd willingly go to hell and back for it wasâ¦

She narrowed her eyes at me and started to walk backwards down the hall and into her bedroom with me following close behind. Our eyes locked the entire time, both of us knowing where this was going. She sat on the edge of the bed, while I leaned my shoulder against the doorframe, my arms folded over my chest with one leg crossed over the other. I took in her disappointment that I hadnât followed her to the bed. I let a few seconds linger between us, wanting to remember her and this moment. Just. Like. This. âStand up,â I ordered in a harsh tone. She didnât think twice about it. âTake off your dress.â She reached for the hem. âSlower.â She gradually lifted her dress over her creamy thighs, and I rubbed my fingers over my mouth already tasting her. She threw her dress on the floor and stood in front of me in nothing but her bra and panties. âTurn for me.â She did. âYouâre so beautiful,â I murmured, loud enough for her to hear. She reached for her bra. âNo.â She cocked her head to the side with a questioning expression. âThatâs my job. I get to strip you completely naked. I get to make you wet. I get to taste you. I get to make you come. Do you understand me?â She nodded and swallowed hard. The bedroom was the only place Lily ever took orders, the thought alone made her wet. âLay on the bed and close your eyes.â She was about to say something and I arched an eyebrow. âBe my good little girl and donât make me repeat myself.â She crawled on the bed making sure to give me a view of her voluptuous butt swaying with each movement she made. She took a deep breath and closed her eyes. I pushed off the wall and ripped off one of the hydrangeas from the vase on her bedside table. I took off my ball cap, setting it on the edge of the bed and placed the hydrangea on the tip of her nose. I kept her house stocked with them now just because I loved seeing her smile every time she looked at them. I spent too many years not seeing that smile. I slowly moved it down her body, barely touching her skin but enough to where it left goose bumps in its wake. Once I reached her pussy I pressed down firmer, moving it back and forth against her clit. She sucked in a breath of air. I continued to play with her for a few seconds. Setting the hydrangea on the nightstand, I took off her bra and then her panties, bringing them up to my face and smelled her wetness.
