I wasn't a rookie, but I made a mistake because I was selfish, impulsive, and headstrong.
I was also in love.
My desire for her overwhelmed me. Consumed me. Distracted me.
To protect her, I stood motionless as my partner pried her from the security of my arms. I watched as she fought his hold. I even listened when she screamed that she hated me.
For years I've been patient, I've been smart, and I've gone by the book. But now...it's finally over.
It's time to get my girl back.
When I show up to reclaim what's mine, I discover she's not ready to forgive me quite yet...but that's okay, because I have no problem reminding her just how good it used to be, even if I have to show her over and over again.
What I do have a problem with is the guy who's been trying to take my place. Because here's the thing, I've waited too long to have her in my arms again to have anybody stand in my way...and I'm done following the rules.
