I waited my entire life for one singular moment.
Everything I had endured—all the pain and suffering—I would go through it all again,
if I knew she waiting for me.
Ryan Chase was the only woman I ever loved.
My obsession. My desire.
When she came home . . . loving her hadn't been easy.
The road to our particular happiness was paved with boulders.
I became whom she needed me to be. Whom she wanted.
Marriage and children— they were a dream we both shared.
Until a nightmare threatened to take it all away.
Is love supposed to be this hard?
How long before the person I'm pretending to be begins to crack?
I'm a liar. A fraud.
He is surfacing.
She's the only reason I survived. I lived.
She is the reason I breathe.
Now, when she needs me the most—I'm transforming into the person
I thought I'd buried years before.
I can't be without her. She gives me purpose and makes me whole.
Nevertheless, the universe chose a different route. God had a different plan.
And right now, I'm pissed at them both.
