I had big dreams of how I wanted my life. Becoming a rock star was all I wanted. It would solve so many of my problems. With the money that I would make, I was going to take care of my mom - get her out of the hellhole we had been living in all my life. Having your dreams come true isn't something that many people get to accomplish in life. I did, and I loved it...for about a minute.
It's funny how when you think you have everything you could possible ever want, your dreams change. Mine did without my even realizing it. Then I opened my eyes and saw that everything I ever wanted was standing in front of me.
From the first day I set eyes on Emmie, she became a part of me. The guys and I spent years watching over her, caring for her, loving her. Then, without my realizing it, my love for her changed. I found myself aching for her, wanting her in a way that a guy like me had no right to want her. My love and need for Emmie became an all-consuming ache that I was helpless to fight against.
Would she ever open those big, green eyes and see me as anything but a friend?
