I know it's been a while since I posted but better late than never right? Finally getting the urge to write a bit now and then. School is starting soon though, so we'll see how it all goes. I hope you enjoy this one :)
“Hey love” Kristi said as she opened her door, “How’s everything?”
“Not good” I sighed.
She shut the door behind me and I slipped my shoes off. She disappeared into the kitchen and I collapsed onto her couch. She appeared in front of me with two bottles and handed me one, “I want you to tell me everything”
Two hours and four Bud Light’s later, I found myself still ranting and crying. What is my life right now? Two guys, one me, I don’t even know what’s so great about me that they find they have to fight over me. Now I’m the one who has to make the decision.
“So Kris is the love of your life, and Max just came in out of nowhere, am I right?”
“Well, when Kris and I were having issues…he was there, he was my best friend”
“Do you love him?”
“Whoa, that’s kind of a loaded question don’t you think?”
“Not really…have you slept with him?”
She just smirked, “Sorry, I had to ask”
I just shook my head and set my empty bottle on the table in front of me. She grabbed mine and hers and set them in the kitchen, “Ju, the only thing I can tell you is think about it. Who you can picture your life with, who you’re really in love with, the one you know will always be there for you”
“It’s not that simple Kristi”
“I didn’t say it was simple. Think about it, sleep on it, just don’t over think it, it’s right in front of your face”
I looked at the clock, almost 2am.
“I think I’m going to try and sleep” I replied, “I’ll talk to you in the morning, again, I really appreciate this Kristi”
“Anytime my dear, there’s some extra clothes in the bedroom, feel free to borrow them”
I shut the door behind me and searched through the dresser in the corner of the small bedroom. I found a pair of sweatpants and a t-shirt. I cleaned myself up in the bathroom and climbed into the bed practically calling my name.
I thought and thought and thought until my head was literally hurting. I couldn’t decide, I couldn’t pick one and not the other, yet, I couldn’t live my life without either of them.
Just pick one Julie, you’d be happy with either one. Just pick one.
My eyes slowly shut, and I was out.
I opened my eyes and saw Kristi standing over me, “What time is it?”
“Almost noon” she replied, “Someone was tired”
“And you have a visitor”
“A very good looking one I might add”
I sighed, “Which one?”
