Without her, I was better off.
I knew it the second she walked away and realized how much happier I was.
Knew it the day I interrupted her wedding reception to show her what she was missing and locked eyes with someone I hadn’t seen in years.
Everything about her turned around something inside me that had been quiet for years.
But I’m not the only one who noticed.
How do I, a grease monkey, compare to what a Nashville star has to offer?
Because without her, none of what I’ve taken years to build matters.
Now I get to prove it to her.
