Knocking me off balance, Karly pushes me away and stares at me. “I don’t owe you anything. Do you understand me? I’ve cried enough since you left me. I’m done crying. I deserve to be treated with respect and love. Jensen’s someone new, and who knows what’s gonna happen, but you and I are done, Nicholas. I can’t forgive you!”
“You belong to me.” Grabbing her arm so her face is close to mine. She needs to see how serious I am. “Do I make myself clear? I know this is a fucked up situation, but you have to believe me. When the time is right, I’ll explain everything. Don’t leave me. Wait for me.”
“I can’t,” she cries, covering her face. “It hurts, Nicholas. It hurts so bad.”
“And it will for a while. I’m sorry, but I need you to be patient.” Looking inside, I see everyone sitting on the couch, looking in our direction. I pull Karly to the other side of the deck, away from their eyes. “Have you fucked him?”
“W-what? Are you serious? Nicholas, we’re just dating! What right do you have to ask me that? It’s none of your business. My life is MY life. Not yours.”
“That’s where you’re wrong, baby.” Wrapping my hand around her neck and pushing her against the railing, I have her closed in. She can’t get away. “You’re mine and no one, no one will touch you. Do I make myself clear? I’m the only one.”
I slam my mouth against hers, pressing down and pulling her closer to me. She finally relaxes in my arms and we have this moment.
Vision of Love & Vision of Destiny

Vision of Hope

You can say I had it all. The fancy house, top of the line car, lots of friends and more money than anyone could ever imagine. On the outside, we were the perfect family. No one knew about my abusive father and my mother who drank herself into oblivion every night. My name is Karly and I have scars, deep scars that no one knows about, and when my parents died I was left alone and on my own, to fight through life with no help.
When it came to life and happiness, I had it all until my world was turned upside down. My name is Nicholas and my wife, the love of my life, left me and our new baby girl without as much as an explanation. I didn’t want to accept it, but after our divorce was final and four long years passed, I started to lose hope that she’d ever come back. Emma was growing so fast and I needed help. My sister recommended that I hire her friend, Karly, as Emma’s nanny. I took a chance on bringing another woman into my little girl’s life. Did I do the right thing?
As many days and nights are spent together, feelings can no longer be denied and a relationship is formed.
Life is about taking chances and learning how to fall, but when the past comes back, will they be strong enough to fight through and trust each other? Or will all they worked for fall apart?
