She was in her own thoughts as he quietly left their apartment. Or should she say, her apartment. Suddenly she realized what she had given up. She had given up a man who was handsome, intelligent, charming, witty and rich for a man who was biding his time at her house pretending to be her boyfriend while he waited for his lover to divorce the only thing that was getting in the way of their love.
Man had she been played.
Hopefully…it wasn’t too late.
Funny how I was able to relate to this particular scene in a fanfiction that I’m reading right now. Only thing is – I don’t have that “handsome, intelligent, charming, witty and rich man” to give up for a “pretend-boyfriend” who decided to go to his original lover when the situation presented itself. The situation is just pretty much familiar still.
This particular scene is from the story “I Love You but Who Are You?” by hermdrayreturns over at www.fanfiction.net.
