Happy Monday! Folks.
It’s Monday and I’m here with yet another weekly shot of love short. This week’s romantic short story is about how love happens in the most unexpected circumstances. Enjoy!
Title: My Sister’s Ex
“Ok, so just because he’s your sister’s ex-fiancé, you will bury your feeling inside your heart.”
“Yeah, of course. I can’t afford to destroy my relationship with Tiara.”
“But, she has dumped him or vice versa. They are no longer together. So, it’s not unfair if you are searching your prospects with the same guy.”
“But, Tiara would never accept my relationship with Dev. She still thinks he’ll come back to her, apologize to her.”
“Apologize. For what?”
“She thinks she hasn’t done any wrong, and it was Dev whose idiosyncrasies led to the breakup. I think she still loves Dev.”
“This isn’t loving Jule. Love isn’t about taking your partner for granted. And, I think you know this better.”
Naomi’s words stirred Jules’ emotions for Dev. She knew what love was. And after that sizzling unforgettable night at Dev’s yacht, she knew she would never fall for any other guy like she had fallen for Dev.
While on the other hand, Dev thought that a twelve year age difference between him and his ex’s sister was something that couldn’t be ignored. He would never ask Jule to sacrifice her youth for a thirty-seven-year-old sailor who himself didn’t know where the tides would take him.
“Hey Julie, what a pleasant surprise?” Tiara hugged her younger sister before pulling her inside the house.
“Looks, like you’re going somewhere?” Jule surprisingly asked her sister.
“Yeah, Gage is coming to pick me up for a dinner date?”
“Yeah, my cute lil sis, the filthy rich Gage Mansor of Reva Chain of Hotels was here last night. And we really had a cool time together, you know.” Tiara unrolled one tendril of her brown curls, her eyes shining mischievously.
Jules’ brow furrowed. “I can’t believe you. You just had a breakup.”
“Life’s all about moving on, darling, and the faster you do this the better your chances of winning the game.”
“And, what if Dev comes back.”
“I wish if he were.”
“I don’t get you, Tia.”
“I must say Dev was hot. He knows what a woman wants in bed. If he comes back I can’t miss the opportunity of spending a night or two with him.”
“You’re evil, Ti. You are gonna cheat both Dev and Gage.”
“Why not? Why should boys have all the fun?”
The honk of Gage’s Merc was loud enough to put a brake on the endless confrontation between Jule and Tiara.
“Gotta go now, sis. I think we need to talk about it later.”
Jule couldn’t see Dev’s boat at the anchorage. She felt paralyzed realizing that Dev had already sailed away, but breathed back to life when his husky voice entered her ears.
“Hey, how are you.”
He shrugged his shoulders as his eyes crinkled under the blazing afternoon sun. “I’m okay. Not as good as I was that night.”
A blush rose to her cheeks thinking about the passion of that silent night. The night when they dissolved into each other in the middle of the ocean, on Dev’s yacht.
“Where’s your boat?”
“Shawn has taken it for a day. Got to propose his long-time girlfriend. And they want to do it on the waves, like us.”
Her gaze dipped to the shimmering sand bed. She scrunched her toes inhaling the woodsy fragrance of his cologne. He neared her and caged her tiny waist in his strong arms.
“I gotta tell you something about Tiara.” She looked in his eyes.
“Because I don’t want you to suffer again. She’ll break your heart if you go back to her. She is planning to double cross you and her new boyfriend both.”
He cleared the stray strands of hair from her face pushing them back behind her ears.
“Are you ready to date a man who’s twelve years older than you, who goes where the waves take him?”
“You talk about dating when I’ve already fallen for a wayward sailor who’s a decade older than me.”
“Have you?” He lifted her chin up on his fingers.
“Yes, I have.”
