“She has let you go. Time to move on and let her go as well.” Christian turned on the blinker on and I was worried his bucket of rust – Mabel – wasn’t going to make it home. I closed my eyes and prayed we would make it safely while I half listened to the two brothers bicker about Garret’s ex-girlfriend, Amy.
Personally, I never understood why anyone would ever want to date Garret in the first place, but I have learned to keep my mouth shut. When Garret thinks someone has wronged him, he will stop at nothing to right the wrong. I honestly had debated whether I should start a relationship with Christian solely on what I knew about Garret. His personality is toxic, but still magnetic enough to draw people into his life and his circle.
I tried to study him from afar because in some ways I wanted to have the same kind of energy that would draw people to me and into my life. But in a positive way, not in the harmful way Garret does. I wanted to have a positive life whereas Garret somehow managed to wreck the lives of those around him.
When Christian and I started dating, I only saw Garret a handful of times as Christian kept him at an arm’s length. Seeing Garret was becoming more common as Christian saw the danger everyone else saw. I think Christian is trying to save Amy’s life and those of any future women.
