There’s only been one woman for me, and she’s never truly been mine. But I don’t have much time for anyone anyway, with my focus on my career.
I’m a military man through and through, from generation to generation. This one girl, though. She stole my heart when we were kids, but it’s taboo, forbidden. She’s my best friend’s little sister, and he’d kill us both.
After my mom recently lost my dad, a quick trip home to help her brings me face to face with the past.
It was just one wild night years ago, but I can’t shake it. She left before the break of dawn, going back to the sea, and I took my place up in the air once again. But she’s never left my mind. Her soft curves and sweet heart haunted me.
And now that we’re back in the same small town for two weeks, I find out she’s in a bad relationship and hiding a secret from me.
A four-year-old little man with my smile and her eyes.
My dream was to stay in the Air Force until retirement, but that dream has changed. So have I.
