Introduction Idk where this is going, or if it is going anywhere at all.

Chapter 1

Ding-dong! The door chimed.
"Maryann. I came here to apologize. I want..."
And then we were kissing. How I had missed the crush of his lips on mine, the feel of our tongues collaborating; his breath, laced with mint tobacco; his eyes, large, brown and wooing. The world around me evaporated into a faint mist. He shoved me into his Mustang, slamming the door behind us. On leather seats we fell, lost in passion.
"You're the one," he whispered in my ear.

We fell asleep in a clump still parked on the side of the road.

Derrick stretched and yawned, smiling when he saw me peacefully asleep.
He kissed me on the cheek.
"Good morning, beautiful."
I was a mess. Smeared mascara covered my face; my long brown hair was in snarls. Memories of the previous night fast forwarded through my mind. I looked at my ex-boyfriend. My heart sagged when I realized what I'd done, but the warmth of his breath so close to mine calmed me.
He wrapped his arms around me.
"L-last night..."
"Was amazing," he finished.
"But what did it mean?"
"I'm in love with you."
Letting that set in, she looked at him.
"I love you too."
"does that mean..."
"We're back together," he confirmed.
His grip tightened around me. Always so posessive. I felt warm. Safe.
He pulled away. I shivered.
"Where are you going?"
He stepped outside. Lit his cancer stick.
I followed close behind, watching as smoke trailed into the forming horizon.
He gazed out to the sunset, looping an arm around me.
The desert sky exploded with light.
A million shades of oranges and yellows streamed in tiny beams peaking just above the neighboring apartment complex.
My heart warmed with delight.
Finishing his cigarette, he stubbed it out in the ashtray with a fizzle through the open car door.

He dragged me to the ground, butt scraping across the cool morning concrete, pulling me closer to his toned body.
"Watch with me," he whispered, tightening his grip on my hand.
I lifted my head, only for it to fall once again. It settled on his shoulder.

Despite being physically uncomfortable, never could I feel more safe than when his arms were around mine, breathing unison and pulses pounding in sync.

The day sped by, every moment savored. Laughing and chatting; walking and running.

"I don't ever want to lose you again," he breathed between kisses. Wet grass bristled underneath our bare feet; breeze whispered past my loose-knit sweater.

Those words stirred memories.

I sniffled, the events replaying through my mind for the thousandth time.

Mrs. Fallah opened the door.
"Oh! Hello, Maryann! Come on in."

We sat down on the couch. Always warm. Generous. She put tea on the kettle.
"What brings you here?"
"I wanted to surprise your son; I brought him cookies." I pointed to the serlite container in my hand.
"Where is he?"
"He's up in his room, studying."
"Derrik! Maryann is here to see you!"
"I don't have time right now, got a big test I'm studying for. See you tomorrow at school, Maryann!"
"Awh, my boy is so smart, studious..."
"Im gonna go up there and drop these off, okay, Mrs. Fallah? Be right back."
"I brought you cookies!" I beamed.
I lay them on the ground. And suddenly, I hear:
"Ooh, yeah, baby! Right there! Whoo! Yeah! Ooh, oh, oh my god, fuck fuck fuck! Aaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhh!"
It was the voice of a girl. No. This couldn't be happening. No. No. No. No. No...
Tears couldn't be held back.
I opened the door, confirming my suspicions. There he was, banging the brains out of some girl I didn't even know.
I stood there, waiting for him to notice me, shaking, silently sniffling, over and over again, shaking my head, wishing it was a dream, anything! But the disgusting sounds continued to hit my ears.
"You whore!" I shouted.
He finally noticed I was standing there.
He got up.
"Leave," he whispered.
She got up, jumping out the window.
"Oh my god, Maryann, I screwed up, I'm so sorry..."
"Don't tell me you're sorry cause you're not. You're only sorry you got caught. We're done. "
I walked out, cookies and dignity in hand.

Of course, he tried to get me back, several times, sweet talking in that smooth voice of his. Said that was the only time, that it didn't mean anything, that he didn't know what he was doing.

I would not put up with it. He had broken my trust, my heart, my self-esteem.

My father nearly killed him when he found out. Always overprotective to the core...
"No. Nobody gets away with hurting my baby-girl like that."
He always talked about how much he wanted to strangle him, like it was good dinner conversation.

"Maryann?" I was crying, buried deep in memories.
"You okay?"
And then I remembered who I sat next to. The one, only one. Knew exactly where to touch me, to make me feel better. In his arms.
"I could never express how sorry I am, for what I did, for hurting you so bad... How deeply I've regretted what I've done all these years. I tried to get over it; I just knew I didn't deserve you. But the pain grew too immense. I need you in my life, Maryann. Forever. I love you."
"I love you too!" I exclaimed in hysterics.
Chuckling at my dramatics, he ruffled my hair and kissed me hard on the lips.
