A truly sad emotional, hearbreaking read


We first met Mags reminiscing about her College years and telling us how she met and fell head over heels for her one!! He was it!! One look and she was a goner!!



She never realized that "until death" would come along so soon, one minute Randall was there and two months later he was gone, she knew life as a Military wife would be hard but she never realized she would be a widow so soon..Her whole life stopped when he was taken from her..He was her light now she's left in the dark alone with a broken heart that keeps breaking over and over again..


Walker was her only companion, Randal's best friend, the only one who really understood what she was going through, her constant support buddy..Ever Sunday at noon Walker was there beside her going through his own process of grief and loss..


Walker was Randy's right hand man, ever since they pledged their fraternity these two were firm friends..




Walker was handsome, tall and had an erotic stare that could make any girl wet within seconds..


It had been a little over a year since Randy was suddenly taken from her, she was a shell of her former self, the only one she really tolerated was Walker, he'd kind of made it his mission to take Mags under his wing and look out for her..So it was only a matter of time when things would start to change between these two..


You could feel the turmoil Mags was going through, the guilt she felt because of the feelings coming to the surface for Walker..





"Say the word, and I will walk out that door and never talk to you again, I've loved you for a while. And I want to be with you. If it has to be only as friends, I'll handle it, but that's not what I want."



Emotions were assaulting me, lust, passion, hate, loneliness, disappointment within myself and shame for what I was feeling for walker..
