The Unscripted Duet
“There’s more at stake; this isn’t just ‘let’s hope this works.’ No, it’s a Hail Mary pass, a last ditch effort.”
I’m living out my fairy tale, but there is nothing typical about our romance. We love fast and we love hard; for me and Junior, love was always just that easy. Asked to do the ultimate favor for a loved one, I can’t say no.
I can only hope that our fairy tale will still end in happily ever after.
My relationship to Emmy has always been a whirlwind from the day we met. She’s the wild card to my straight shooter, the storm to my calm, the crazy to my sane. Yet, we’ve always balanced each other out perfectly.
She’s the strongest, most selfless person I know, and that’s why she couldn’t say no. And she needed my support.
Foolishly, I thought we could survive anything but will love unscripted destroy us all?
What I thought I knew, what I thought I deserved, what I thought life had planned for me was all thrown out the window in one night.
“I’m not naive to believe that the road will be easy by any means, that I won’t stumble, have roadblocks in my path.”
I thought I knew love, what it meant to love another person so strongly that it consumed me. Except all that changed in one night. My life was all laid out, but apparently fate had other ideas.
Thrown into the unknown, I learned who I could count on. What I didn’t count on was her and the unconventional relationship we started to build.
“What I do know is I’m not alone; I won’t ever have to walk alone.”
As much as I’m struggling to deal with this loss, it’s not just about me anymore. She needs me more than ever, and I’m not prepared to let her down.
In one night, my life became unscripted.
