It's said you never forget your first.
She was my childhood best friend. We were inseparable. We kept each other's secrets and grew up knowing we would always be there for one another.
In the most devastating moment of our lives, we shared our grief--and found comfort in each other's arms. Somehow, the worst day became the best night.
And then she left.
I've never forgotten her. I've tried but couldn't. My only consolation is the memory of one perfect night.
Now, ten years later she walks back into my life, a grown, gorgeous woman and I'm ready for a second chance.
The look in her eyes says I'm still what she wants, now I have to convince her to trust me with her heart. I'll never allow anyone to toy with her again.
I know she still loves me, because true love never dies.
