The Real Story
Ok ok, here is our real story. I tried to keep it short so it wasn’t a novel. Obviously our story has a lot more to it but here is the condensed version.
Erik is Gemini’s husband’s brother, that sets the stage for our meeting. Erik had just left his ex (December 2002) and was about to start divorce proceedings. There was a party, xmas party to be exact. Gemini introduced me to Erik and that was pretty much how it started. I still remember thinking I had lost my mind to fall for a married man, that I had finally reached my stupidity with men :crazy:
Erik and I were friends at first, honestly. We flirted and enjoyed each other’s company but it was platonic. We had a bunch of movie nights and talked online a lot.
He came to my xmas party and handed me a note at the end of it which said I can stay over if you want me to. Mind you I was living with my rents at the time and he was staying with his brother (45 minutes away). I thought he was joking and laughed in his face. He wasn’t but I apologized.
Since Gemini and his brother were going away for VDay that year 2003 Erik invited me over to hang out. We went for a long drive, just to talk and listen to music. While sitting on the sofa he pulled out his guitar and sang for me Everlong by the Foo Fighters. I started to cry.
That was how we got together :heart:
