I fell in love once…
We were young, fresh out of high school. But I believed in us, I believed in our love.
He left to serve our country. Promising to always stay with me no matter where he was. He broke his promise. He got on that bus and I never heard from him again.
So, I did what anyone would, I moved on. I left him in the past, right beside the broken heart he gave me. Five years came between us, five years for me to forget all about him.
Until the night he swoops in and saves me. The boy I remember has turned into a hard bodied soldier. His muscles are thick, his arms strong, protective, holding me like he never wants to let me go.
And his smile, his smile still makes my heart flutter. I don’t know what to do. He hurt me once already.
Do I forgive him and give him a second chance? Or do I let go of this man in uniform?
