Wanting to get the focus off of me, I ask, “What about you? Why did none of your past relationships work?”
He stares straight into my eyes and says, “Because they weren’t you. I was looking for you my whole life and never knew it.” He doesn’t blink, his stare unwavering as he sears his declaration into my mind.
“Nice line.” He’s making me uncomfortable, putting me on edge and getting closer than I’d like.
“It’s not a line. I believe everything happens for a reason, and I believe my other relationships failed so that they’d lead me to you.”
Fate. Is that what this is?
No, it’s karma being a bitch. He doesn’t know what I know. If he did, he wouldn’t be spilling this poetic bullshit about us being destined for each other.
