(UNEDITED AND SUBJECT TO CHANGE)
I told her that I loved her. I had meant every single word of it. I would never have said those words if I wasn’t serious. In fact, I had never spoken those vile words before to any other girl, and tonight, I had to her.
Well, that was a big fucking mistake. The biggest fucking mistake of my life.
I took one last glance at the text on her phone from a guy called Chris. Hey hun, did you get the results yet? You know I’ll support you no matter what.
As I watched the text message disappear from the screen, I felt my jaw tighten as a wrath of emotions whirled around inside me: rage, pain, betrayal. Could this Chris be the ex boyfriend she’s mentioned to me before—the one who broke her heart and caused her to move from Iowa to California? If it was the same Chris, then something must have happened between them the month Alexis and I were not together for them to reconnect again.
I glanced over at the glass of water in front of Alexis’s chair. It wasn’t until then that I realized that she hadn’t had a glass of alcohol throughout the entire wedding ceremony.
Could she be pregnant with his child?
That was the only explanation I could think of to explain why Alexis hadn’t mentioned anything about any “results” to me and why she was secretly communicating with another guy that was probably her ex boyfriend.
A storm of fury ignited inside me as I imagined another man inside the woman that I love—no, the woman that I loved. I felt something inside me shift, as if I was systematically closing off my feelings for her and a hatred for her was growing inside me.
I thought she was different, someone that was making me a better person—a version of myself I’d never thought I could be. I thought she was my game changer, the one that would actually tame the infamous Damian Castillo that every women pined after.
But I was wrong.
She had crept her way into my life, seeped through my walls that I’d put up against women, and consumed my every thought like a stain that wouldn’t come off.
I had given everything I had to her—I even given her things I never thought I had to give. I had unequivocally and completely lost myself to her. But the minute she had me within her grasp, she had destroyed me.
I wasn’t sure how I let myself become so blinded by her, and I wasn’t sure how I let myself so easily have feelings for a girl. But I was sure of one thing: Alexis was nothing like what I thought she was and she was everything like who my mother was—the cold-hearted whore that left me to forever wonder who my real father was. My mother had ruined the memories of my childhood, and now, I had allowed Alexis to ruin my present.
I stood up quickly, the rage inside fueling a new sense of determination. I grabbed my glass of scotch, gulped it down, and slammed the empty glass back on the table.
I was Damian Castillo, and I had vowed a long time ago that I would never again let a woman destroy my life. No, I wouldn’t bow out and give Alexis the satisfaction of knowing she got to me. No, I would not let her get away with it. I would make her pay for her betrayal, and I would enjoy it.
