When I was in high school, I had a full-blown affair with Lyle Walker. It was novice and innocent but turned out to be one sided.
By ruining her, I became undone. When Nate asked me why Pamelon was following me around in the senior year, I should have punched him in the face.
Somewhere deep inside, I felt he loved me.
It was a sad existence to love her not have the nerve to tell her.
There was something in his eyes, that told me he wasn’t ready to share it with the world.
I was worried what everyone would say, especially my parents. None of that matters now.
He was boy Lyle Walker, not the full-blooded man that I am today.
Now, as I’m faced with his proposition for a week of my time in exchange for a bank loan, I know our love is lost and cannot be earned again.
I’m ready to do whatever it takes to earn my woman back, including opening the vaults to my bank and my heart.
