Fragile Longing

All Rights Reserved ©


My brothers best friend has always been the man I've loved. It doesn't matter that we both moved on because we both knew time was closing in on us. We also knew that it would be Heather and Joe forever and always. Time is a funny thing because it could be seconds, minutes, hours, months or years, but time will never stay still, so when the time is right, you jump at it and make sure never to miss another moment; otherwise, it could be gone within an instant. One mistake or one broken promise could lead it all to fall apart. Maybe it will be our chance to have a happy ending, or maybe just maybe our time has already passed. Book Four (Can be read as a standalone. However, you'll understand more about Joe and Heather if you read Breaking Boundaries.) . (This book contains lots of mature contents and sex scenes) 18+ (Please note that I am dyslexic, so they will be some grammar and spelling mistakes.)

Maybe it's not about the happy ending. Maybe it's about the story.

That's what I learnt by loving Joe. I stand here looking in the mirror as I have my wedding dress fitted. I look back on the years that we had together.

I always thought it would be Joe and me until the very end, and
I still hope that after everything that I have planned, maybe they will still be a little hope there for Joe and me.

The shop door opens, but I don't look. This is meant to be one of my happiest moments. I should be smiling and laughing whilst having my fitting, but why do I feel like everything is falling apart? I know the reason why that is. It's because I'm not marrying the man I love, but I did this. I'm the one that put us on hold.

We both ran when things got hard instead of fighting for each other if we stayed and fought for each other, then we wouldn't be in this mess right now. We would be in each other's arms where we both belong.

"Heather." My breathe stops, and I close my eyes. I know that voice. It's the voice that's in my dreams every time that I sleep next to another man. It's the voice that I hear over and over again, telling me I'm making a mistake. It's the voice that I hear when I think of my future.

I turn and look, my eyes go wide, and my mouthparts. The man I loved all my life is standing there looking exhausted and broken. He looks like I do when I stare into the mirror because without Joe and me together, we're nothing.

"Don't do this. Don't marry him. I promise you I won't walk away from you. I will stay and fight like I should have when you was nineteen. I promise you no more running. I want us to fight for what's meant to be because, Heather, I'm nothing without you."

I try to keep my tears at bay, but I know it's too late. I can't do this. I can't have him here. I need to see this plan through because when I do, I know I'll finally feel at peace, but maybe just maybe, if I close my eyes, all this will be a dream, and when I wake up, I'll be in Joe's arms, and none of the years of heartbreak would have happened.

But that doesn't happen. I'm still standing looking in the mirror with Joe behind me. I know I have to make my choice. I can go through with my plan, or I can throw it all away. I turn around and face the man I love.

It's now or never...
