There I was, sitting at home waiting for my older man, Keegan, to come over and sweep me off my feet. I had ended our May-December relationship, because I felt like he wasn’t secure enough to be with a younger woman, but after leaving him, he seemed to realize how much he loved me and wanted to be with me.
It hurt that a part of him was ashamed of our relationship, because of our age difference, and I hated the fact that he was seeing other people just in case something better came along. But at the same time, I loved this man and I wanted to be with him. I wasn’t going to let my pride stand in the way of my happiness. This was going to be our first time seeing each other since the breakup, and I had no idea what to expect.
A couple hours before he was supposed to arrive, there was a knock at the door and when I opened it, all I found was a bouquet of roses with a card from Keegan with an apology.
It was almost 8 o’clock in the evening when there was another knock at the door. This time, Keegan stood there looking back at me with his big, beautiful chestnut brown eyes and long eyelashes. He has the kind of eyes most women would kill to have naturally. I opened the door, welcoming him inside. He immediately hugged and kissed me, holding me so tight I could hardly breathe.
“I didn’t think you would ever let me back into your life,” he mumbled.
“I love you more than you realize,” I whispered. “I want to be your wife, I want to be your children’s mother, I want to be with you for the rest of my life,” I said to him as tears started rolling down my face. We kissed, hugged, and cried together, but he didn’t exactly react to my confession of wanting to marry him. I couldn’t help but feel a little embarrassed. But I would soon find out why he reacted the way he did.
Keegan opened up to me a lot that night, and I learned a lot about his past relationship, which was something he had never told me about before. It turns out that he had a pretty big past, and I was about to find out a lot more secrets about him…
