When I pictured my future, I never imagined I would be pregnant and on my own, but this is my reality. I had my baby to think about, and being with a lying, cheating man-child suddenly didn’t hold as much appeal.
Turning back to the one thing that has always grounded me, I immersed myself in books; the local library, my playground. That’s where I met him.
I’ve spent my life trying to be the perfect child and stay out of trouble. People only see what they want to, though. The Frost Brothers are no good.
I’ve done my time, and now I’m trying to get on with my life. It wasn’t my intention to fall for someone, let alone a girl who clearly belonged to someone else. She didn’t look at me like everyone else did. But could she really fall for a guy like me?
