Erin had always craved for what she couldn’t have, this time was no different. It was the one thing she desired most and was yet typically denied, a relationship of sorts that she wasn’t even so much as to dream about, a relationship that would have put past ones to shame.
It was an unrequited love that in other times had caused her nothing but grief, but her undeniable passion for success always pulled her through such pains until she was left with nothing but blisters. She now had a hard heart, singling out only those that she knew would last almost a lifetime.
Erin clearly remembered her first such relationship, and how her heart had lifted when she found that everything fit, how she had stood tall and proud knowing that together they could pull through anything, it hadn’t lasted, of course, the relationship had inevitably ended badly, leaving her in a hospital bed overnight, cold and alone, the pain unbearable.
The low crushed feeling the split had caused her should have sworn her away from such relationships for good, but her next encounter had promised to be better.
She slowly became addicted.
The one she currently had her sights on was indeed deemed as perfect, it made her insides melt, and she knew that this time, unlike all the others, it was ‘the one’, there could be no other as beautiful.
Such a height could and most probably would compliment hers so very gracefully, and with a body to die for she could hardly turn away. Such smooth silky skin would’ve made a virgin cry and she was thankful for a moment that she wasn’t one and hadn’t been for a long time.
It was a thing of beauty, as if it had been carved by the Gods themselves and Erin craved it, wanting it so desperately that she was ready to snatch it off the shelf before anyone else could have it.
Stupidly, she questioned herself, would it be worth it in the long run, would it be worth breaking the rules for, to be called everything under the sun simply for giving into the one true weakness that she had, would her love be strong enough to get them though it all?
Erin sighed and turned away, refusing to look back on what would have been the most fantastic relationship, but a promise was a promise and she was far above breaking them, besides if brother could starve off alcohol then surely she could too with her shoes, no matter how pretty.
The reductions just made it that little harder to resist.
How she loathed the sales!
