about this story

Ding dong! I reluctantly pull myself off the couch and tear my eyes away from the television as I move to answer the door. Ding dong! "I'm coming, I'm coming" I mutter as I grumble at being disturbed. I open the door and am immediately engulfed in the largest bouquet of roses I have ever seen. Swiftly, I back into my apartment and slam the door in the face of the unsuspecting messenger. Does he really think he can buy back my affection with fancy gifts and sweet gestures? I scoff at the notion and then glance at my phone. Eighteen missed calls. I'm momentarily impressed at his persistence however, seconds later I feel the all familiar rage that has consumed me for the last two weeks. Ever since he left me all I have wanted to do was run him over with a car. When we first met there were immediate fireworks. And now I am grasping for some sort of relief from the thought of what he did to me. As I stand there thinking about what the past was, I am hit by the fact that I am hurting not only him, but myself as well. With this moment of clarity I suddenly realize that I have a choice to make. Forgiveness. Slowly I reach for my phone. I hear him answer on the other end. "Hi, want to grab some dessert? I need to talk to you."
