Sarah--We hadn't spoken in years, and more often than not, he was on my mind. When I moved back to town he reached out. I stalked him enough times on Facebook to know he had a wife and two kids. I didn't want to get my hopes up, but the pull I felt inside couldn't be ignored.
Aaron--She was back. I thought I'd never see her again, but there she was. Within my reach. She agreed to meet up at the dirt track when I sent her a message. What would she think of me being a dad? Did she even know?
The unspoken feelings she tried to leave in the past forced her to keep him at arm's length. He was in the middle of a divorce and had two boys they both needed to consider. He was all in but she was questioning everything.
But sometimes...you have to follow your heart and let yourself fall--no matter how things might end. It'd be worth it. Always.
