I had been called ruthless. Uncaring. A bitch. And more.
I'd known from a very young age that I wasn't like other women. I’d never wanted a husband and two-point-five children. I’d never wanted a white picket fence around a home that had to be baby-proofed. I’d never wanted a happily-ever-after. I was happy enough taking care of my sister, Lynn. Then the day came when Lynn didn’t need to be taken care of anymore. She didn’t need me. None of her “friends” needed me. I’d built this solitary life for myself and I liked it. Until I didn’t.
Then I met Will Clark. He needed help in his office, and I needed to be useful, so I let myself in. I walked right into his life and I turned it upside down. What started out as a fun part-time job turned into real feelings and real…dare I call it love?
For a short time, Will made me forget that I wasn’t suited to a normal life. He made me forget that marriage and family were not in my future. Then one day I was forced to remember. I had to make a choice. In the end, I had to choose to save him or save his ex-wife. Either way, there would be no one left to save me.
