Once More

At last I confessed, even though I was tempted not to. For years, my heart longed for him but never dared to voice the feelings. After his divorce two years ago, he was overwhelmed by sorrow. I tried to keep in touch, even though I was forbidden not to. It was a tough decision to make.


Today is his wedding day.

The pain of betrayal of his first wife used to make him miserable. But finally, he felt his heart begin to heal. Never did he dream that love would find him in the form of his ex-wife’s best friend.
