Melissa has been in an off and on relationship with Keith for 2 years. He seems to disappear for weeks or even months without saying where he goes or what he does.
The two met at one of the soft ball games as coaches a

The alarm says 9pm but it feels like 2am. Damn I really need to sleep; I have to go to work in the morning. Her subconscious mind is keep wavering between Jarred and Keith. Wavering between reality and her dreams her life changing decision was yet to be made.

As Melissa drifted into a peaceful sleep she suddenly heard a crash. It sounded like it came from the kitchen but who could that be? Questions running through her mind, panic slowly rising, she reached for the phone to call 911. As she reached to dial the last one she heard a familiar voice cursing. Now confused and pissed, she grabs her 34in baseball bat and runs down stairs into the kitchen. “What the hell are you doing”?! With adrenalin running through her veins the bat was going for Keith’s head. Shocked of her reactions, Keith goes for the bat with one hand and holds her by the waist with the other. “I missed you baby”. Looking into her deep brown eyes he sees nothing but the love he has for her. He hears nothing but the sound of her voice in his head. He feels nothing but the smooth silk feeling of her skin on his finger tips. For the past 2 months, this moment is all that he could think about. Dropping the bat he whispers, “I love you” Waiting for a response he tries to embrace her but she pushes him away.

“You left without a word, you stood me up, and you break into my place and expect me to just forget anything happened”? Keith stares into her eyes with guilt, lust, and passion. Keith sighs and tries to explain himself without saying too much about his job. “Baby you know I didn’t mean to hurt you. I had some business I had to take care of”. Over whelmed with emotions Melissa sobs while trying to get away from Keith. Breaking free she runs into her room and locks the door.  “What should I say”? he asks himself as he walks up the stairs.  

The End
