A chance meeting years ago.
Another chance meeting one night followed by a passionate kiss.
A final chance meeting in an ER.
Followed by the most horrible first date ever.
That might just be the best first date ever.
Newly divorced Marcus, Lead singer of a Heavy Metal band.
Never dreamed he’d find love ever again.
Single mom Ella, knows she may never have her own HEA.
Not when she has more than the normal baggage.
What follows, neither expected.
How much is Marcus willing to sacrifice to be with Ella?
Can Ella open her heart, knowing she may never truly find her happy ending?
I put my phone in my pocket, standing up. I watch as Ella gets out, and she opens the back door. Her little boy gets out, holding a bag of food. He starts walking toward the house but stops when he sees me.
“Hey, little man. My name’s Marcus. What’s yours?” I kneel down to his level. He stands there and stares at me.
Ella comes up behind him. “It’s okay. You can talk to him. He’s mama’s friend.”
She raises her eyes up to me and grins.
I return my attention back to him, and he narrows his eyes.
“I’m Tyler. I’m four years old. Mama is twenty-four. How old are you?”
I smile as I answer, “I’m twenty-nine. Is it okay if I hang out with you and your mom?”
He shrugs, glancing up at Ella. “You have to ask Mama. She’s the Mama,” he says in all seriousness.
I nod, glancing to Ella. She’s smiling also.
“So what do you say, Ella? Can I hang out with you two tonight?”
“Sure,” she steps up to the porch to unlock the door.
Born and raised in a small town; growing up I was more of the loaner then anything. Never dated the guy of my dreams.
But I grew up & married the perfect guy for me!
I write mainly for the fun of it & it’s my stress reliever!
