Men, We’ve Been deceived.

 

I was severely ill and shook in front of an electric heater while wearing only briefs. I remember turning the heater dial to high. She came home and stepped over me.

I was in college at the time. It was her idea to get our apartment before we were ready. Just as it was her idea to have sex before I was ready. She pushed wanting sex with leverage of breaking up until I relented.

When she stepped over me the second time, to leave, I had realized what I needed to do.

My fever was so high that I was seeing things that weren’t there.

I knew Megan was the right one when she drove, from two states away, to bring to me a family remedy to help alleviate a massive canker sore located on my tongue. I had only just mentioned I had one. And she was there.

  1. I think the bravest and most powerful thing we do when we write is to be transparent. To take the reader to places inside of us, defining moments, thoughts, emotions, decisions that no one else can see. Thank you for sharing one of those pivotal moments. A pleasure and a privilege to read.
