Enjoy an Excerpt
“Tell me one thing, Ella. When I messed up, and I pushed you away… did you feel just a little bit victorious because that was what you’d been expecting? You wanted me to mess up to prove your point that you couldn’t trust any man. You wanted me to mess up, so you didn’t have to take that chance on falling in love.” She started to shake her head and speak, but he interrupted, “Before you tell me that I’m being ridiculous, just stop and think. Okay? I’m not looking for assurances, I’m looking for the truth. You were waiting for me to mess up. Right?”
There were a few seconds of silence, before Ella sighed through her tears. “Fine. I was. I was waiting.”
“Right. We were both just waiting for that other shoe to drop. For a reason to push away before we were pushed. So, we were doomed from day one. I can’t do this, Ella. I can’t keep chasing after a woman that doesn’t want a relationship with me.” He paused and in a softer tone, added, “I went through that once already, and once is enough in a lifetime.” Then he got into his car and was gone, even as the tears streamed down her face. Even as she struggled to call him back. Even as she realized that she might have made a mistake in chasing away the best man she had ever known.
