For his son️
An arranged marriage with a kid involved??
‘Are my ears aching or did you just ask me out on a date??'..i blurted out loudly with a bemused expression on my face and Joel smirked...
‘It's that a yes or no??'..He replied.
‘It's an i don't know what your intentions are Joel?? We've been avoiding each other in every possible way and now you're asking me out on a date?? Don't you think its a bit impulsive on your part??'...i said..
‘Impulsive?? Are you interrogating me Carol??'..He asked and i smiled..
‘Nathan can you please give your daddy and i a little time to straighten things out??'..i said to the 6 year old who was just blinking..
‘Okay but please don't take too long I'm really hungry'..He whimpered and went inside the house...
‘Well he's gone now Joel so you can really say why you want to go out on a date with me'..
‘You really think so lowly of me don't you??'..i muttered obviously devastated by her harsh words and the painful stab of guilt it had on me..
‘I don't think lowly of you Joel I just don't want to cross a line which you've clearly drawn'..She replied..
‘Look I just want to put the past few days behind us Carol,I've really been unfair to you knowing that you just want to help —Truth is no one has ever been close to my son but you and I just don't know how to take it...i was way too selfish and self centered to think about anyone else especially you...I'm really sorry Carol about the child you lost and i don't know what i would have done if I ever lost Nathan so i presumably know how you feel so...can we start over??'...
‘Yeah Joel..Yeah we can start over'..
