Zea: I’d always been a hopeless romantic – well, I used to be.
Until I had to make a devastating decision.
See, I’m a Pastor’s daughter, and my loyalty to my family and church won.
It was apparent I didn’t support my ex’s new business venture, so I dipped.
I know it sounds crazy. And yes, I was often tormented by that decision. See, I was young and dumb then.
But the day we bumped into each other after eight long years, the LUST in his eyes told me we had UNFINISHED BUSINESS.
This time my actions screamed grown woman.
And, despite my past indiscretions towards this man.
He had me breaking all my rules… AGAIN.
Honor: Eight years ago, I had a breakthrough and a breakdown on the same day.
When my fiancé walked out of my life with no explanation, leaving me to figure it out.
After that, I didn’t do relationships. I was dead inside.
Instead, I pushed myself to build a billion-dollar business with my siblings.
I vowed to see it through till the end.
Still, I never knew how I would respond if I saw her again… until it happened.
Her touch sent a warming shiver through me.
I had to punish her. I wanted to punish her.
But I couldn’t. See, she was giving me new life along with a reason to fight through my darkest days to come.
