March Madness, Paulette...
We all make choices in life that we will change our flow and vibe. Sometimes, others make choices that impact our lives. It's our decision whether we choose to forgive or forget. Paulette Jones shows us a love that has been tested by "choices."
It's March Madness and we're celebrating all month long. Leave a reply at the end of the post to be entered into her giveaway.
Taylor and Brandon give you the foundation that the entire series is built on. Young love, Pure love, Unstoppable love mixed with incredible Passion, just enough Drama, Family, and Friends. All those things come together to ask, Where Does Your Heart Belong?
When I finally woke I didn’t want to open my eyes. I wanted to stay in his arms forever but I knew we were going to have to talk about what had happened. I didn’t know if that was the plan he had when he invited me over but I knew it was not in my plans. Then as if he was reading my mind I felt his lips on the top of my head and his arms tighten yet again around my waist.
“You know this is not what I asked you over here for right?” I stretched my arms above my head and pulled the blanket up to my chest so I could sit up relieved he said the words to answer my thoughts.
“Yea, I guess we just well I’m not really sure what to say.”
“Taye, I never meant to hurt you. And since we never truly talked about the situation and after that day we argued you completely shut me out I just figured you didn’t want anything to do with me anymore.”
“But how could you have that impression Brandon you never called, you never tried.”
“I know I didn’t I just I keep listening to all the wrong people who got in my head and it got crazy so part of me felt like you were just better off without me.”
“I don’t know you seemed that way when I came home for Christmas break you didn’t even seem like you were affected in any way.” After that statement, I was fully paying attention to him and looking directly into his eyes.
“How, I didn’t even leave my house during my Christmas break. Me and Casey even went shopping for our gifts at night so I wouldn’t have to run into people.”
“I know I saw you two in the store. I think maybe you were getting something for your dad and brother because you were in the men’s section of Clearfield’s. You were holding up shirts and stuff laughing and you just looked happy. I wanted to come over to you but I thought since you were happy I shouldn’t so I just went the other way and got out of there as quick as possible.” There was sadness on his face that I had never experienced before.
“I don’t even really remember being in there, I’m sure I was I just know Casey was doing so much to keep my mind off everything and I was so grateful to her I think she was the one that suggested we go in there since they had those crazy Hawaiian shirts my dad always has on in the summer. Brandon, I have to ask you something I have wanted to know for so long and part of me even now is still scared to know the answer…but I had to take a deep breath to get myself together. What made you sleep with her, I guess the better question is why didn’t you use protection or think about me and stop yourself. How could you not think of me was there something better about her than me?” The words spilled out of me like a waterfall and I couldn’t seem to stop them. But if I was being honest with myself I felt a full sense of relief wash over me after they were out. I could see he was processing his thoughts and what he would say in response to my question. But I couldn’t help but think back to last October.
The me I am is the me I was born to be. It's my thing it's also how I live if I wasn't born to be this person then I wouldn't be here. It's that simple and it makes life so much more fun to live. It even drives my writing and the things I actually develop and released.
My specs are simple really, graduated high school, got my degree, found a job and started figuring out life. The realization that thirty-five was knocking on my door led me to sit down with my laptop and get out all the thoughts running through my head. For years like many others, I'm sure I found every reason not to write and now I can't seem to find a reason to stop. I'm a positive mind even when life isn't headed down a positive road anyone that knows me would agree with that. I genuinely love escaping into the world of words. May they be the ones of a new or favorite author or my very own I love the entire process.
