He was persistent.
Ashton Donovan was determined to break down my walls and do anything to get me to say yes.
Yes to dating him. Yes to being with him. Yes to marrying him.
He wouldn't give up until he had his ring on my finger. No matter how many times I told him that I just wanted to have some fun.
While I had issues trusting people, Ashton wasn't like anyone else I knew. He was patient and kind, even when I didn't deserve it.
But if he found out about my past, would he still want me?
She was sassy.
Tabatha Hare was mine. Even if she didn't know it yet.
I wanted to settle down and the first woman I wanted to do that with, gave me a flat-out no. Served me right.
But with some persistence on my part, she eventually caved as we explored these feelings between us.
While she still didn't trust me completely, I was willing to sacrifice everything to get my ring on her finger.
No matter the cost.
