The Game of Love -By Kgali Claire Mmuoe

It was a lovely

winter summers day in the city of gold; the August cold fronts had started to

blow in and pass through but it was beginning to look and feel like spring

minus the icy cold weather .Besides everybody trying to keep warm, there was

work to do, the traffic was horrendous as always if it wasn’t an accident or a

stationary truck, it was traffic backed up for a kilometer cause of traffic

lights being off , getting to work or school was a mission for anyone whether

they made it in time or late ,by the end of the day the same scenario repeated

itself with less buzz around stalls

opening and stores closing. Only this time it is a mission getting back home.

Iris hosts a show with

Jonathan called the sports show with a difference she is a well know writer,

presenter on screen and on the airwaves she knows her market and enjoys her Job

she has never woken up not loving what she does.

She has a pretty

normal life. Like any other woman she has her in securities but she hides them

very well. So well you would think she had no problems.

The day started

normally for iris as like any other day if

there was a task to finish she completed it ,if there was a show to

shoot she rehearsed and shot it ,if there was a script to write she wrote it

and if there was a show to present she presented it. It was all in a day’s work

for this independent woman who had a man who complemented her and not complete her;

cause she was complete and content.

Iris was a perfect

example of a woman who has everything going for her; you could say she was

content with the way things were in her life. Though life wasn’t easy when she was

growing up, she kept positive and worked hard. She understood the value of hard

work and accepting that things may not work the way you hoped they would but

they work out in the end they way they are supposed to.

Falling in love for

Iris was simple; she didn’t think about it the feeling was either there or not.

She wasn’t one to just fall in and out of love, she was friendly and accepting

,but kept her heart guarded for fear of

getting hurt or rejected. All that

changed when she grew up …

Chapter 1

It was 4PM at the

radio station, Iris was about to start her sports show. Besides doing a million

and one things during the day; her favorite part of the day was doing what she

loved most, giving her audience what they want, having fun while doing it and

oh not to mention doing her job with perfect execution.

Iris switched on her

microphone and began her show.

“A very good afternoon listeners my name is

Iris and you are listening to, the sports show with a difference. On the show

today we are discussing the La Liga ,bundes

liga and the EPL games taking place this weekend. As you can hear today I am

flying solo my co-host decided to get the flu bug that is going

around; get well Jonathan love you lots buddy. Let’s get this show started.”

Iris got the show

started and finished. She got back home thinking that she was going to find the

house empty and all she was going to have was a toasted ham and cheese sandwich

and off to bed, but to her surprise she found her fiancé cooking…all she

could think of was sleeping, she had a long day at work and the last thing she

wanted to do was start a fire that she couldn’t put out.

Bryce was an

international model and actor, he had brown hair and dreamy hazel green eyes,

he had a Spartan built type of body, which drove women wild and made other men jealous

he had poster boy looks that could easily sell anything; that is why he was the

most in demand actor and model locally and internationally.

This pretty hot boy

however had eyes for one woman .Bryce loved Iris with his heart they both had

the perfect relationship privately and publically; they were the it couple and

the envy of every struggling couple. They were almost just too cute together

and they did complement each other in such a way that when you looked at them

you would almost get a warm fussy feeling that made you want to fall in love

all over again.

Iris entered the house and she could smell

dinner, an infusion of lamb stew and red wine filled the air with freshly baked

bread just out of the oven, the house smelt like a restaurant, that serves only

homemade meals and when you taste the food you can tell just from the first

bite that the meal took time and was made with love.

Bryce was quiet the cook, problem is he only

cooked when he wanted to make up for doing something wrong or when he wanted to be all romantic and

charming and treat Iris to dinner on occasions like their anniversary or

valentine’s day ;but it was neither and that set off an uneasy feeling in Iris’s

heart and gut. Iris closed the door hung

her bag and coat and took her phone with her.

“Bryce? Honey I know

your home” Iris called out

Bryce answered” in

the dining room! “

Iris ran to the

dining room with excitement and wonder

‘Bryce? “

She called out in

song, Bryce ran to give her a hug and a kiss, the moment was so sweet and innocent

and filled with nostalgia, kind of like the moment when you have your first

kiss and all the butterflies, nervousness and all that jazz is there. She

didn’t realize how much she missed him until that moment he held her close and

kissed her. Bryce ached to hold her it had been too long and he hated the last

time they said goodbye to each other.

“I missed you welcome

home; how was work? “

At that moment Iris

got off Bryce and she sensed something was not right .For her it felt like she

was coming home to someone totally different

never mind that he had changed his hair color to black he was strangely

doggy he made little to no eye

contact and he was all over the place. This

was unlike Bryce, because he was direct and forthcoming.

See normally when you

have known someone for a long time like the back of your hand you know

everything there is to know about the person; what turns them on or off, how

they feel and the looks they give when they don’t like something or pretend.

What Iris felt was a gut feeling that told her something wasn’t right.

“Work was okay Jerry loaded me with double the

workload since Jonathan was sick but I managed. Why didn’t you tell me you were

coming home early what’s going on?’

Iris inquired with an antsy tone; she sounded

very tired but she tried to look excited and since Bryce was so pre occupied

with his thoughts, he didn’t even notice that something had changed with Iris.

‘If I told you it was

not going to be a surprise now was it”

Bryce’s’ heart was pounding as fast as a

runaway train for fear of Iris finding out what he did when they took a break

from each other, to sort themselves out .They both had gotten into the mother

of all arguments before Bryce went to shoot a movie for five months. The

argument was about an important ingredient to every relationship formed; Bryce

had done something that had made Iris question his loyalty towards her and

whether or not they were wasting each other’s time and should move on.

“No sneaky, very

sneaky.”

Iris realized that Bryce was not being

charming he was coming across as apologetic and that in turn sent off alarm

bells, she could feel it something did not add up. Bryce was home early and she

knew that he loved to put in a lot of effort when his working on a campaign or

playing a character if not change or redo a scene he is too much of a

perfectionist and subtly domineering.

Bryce retaliated by

saying

“That is not the word

I was going for babe”

He tried so hard to

sound calm but he was burning inside and although it was cold outside the house

was definitely heating up

“Unexpected? I don’t

know what else to say”

She shrugged her

shoulders not knowing what to say obviously a bit confused.

‘No spontaneous

dinner is served’

He took out the food

and everything was on point, presentation, table setting, and aroma. Iris

wasn’t really hungry she was actually tired from the hectic day she had at work

all she wanted to do was sleep, besides being emotionally tired. The drive back

home to Bedford took the last bit of energy she had.

Iris commented on the

meal she had to find a way to get him to open; even if she said something

simple.

“Wow you have really out done yourself that

was really spontaneous of you” she

put emphasis on spontaneous just to

make a statement.

she took a seat as calm as ever cause she knew she was about to open a can of worms and this time a

great meal would not solve a thing. Bryce

sat down across the table from her and looked at her

“Dinner is served enjoy,

I should do this more often”

“Thanks for dinner

but before we eat, honey can you tell me what is going on? I kind of don’t know

why you went out of your way to cook a gourmet meal, when you never do. You

didn’t need to go out of your way to cook…”

“What’s going on with

what; and why are you acting suspicious? Like I have done something wrong are

you going to bring our last argument and rub it in my face! “

Bryce snapped out the

blue and lost his cool he always acted angrily to try and cover up what he was

feeling or really thinking it was second nature to him but he never did that

with Iris he was always gentle and open.

To him it felt like

he was losing grip slipping and he was

blaming it on someone who did not deserve it, his one true love.

“I told you nothing

why the hell are you pushing yes I’m back earlier than expected and well I am

here so do you have a problem with that?”

As shocked as Iris

was from his reaction she knew that she was on to something and being the

journalist she is she was not going to let it go. She knew that if she let it

go she would not sleep it would bug her all night.

“No sorry I asked; why

are you being so mean to me?”

“I’m sorry here you

are trying to create conversation and I’m being a jerk. “

Bryce licked his lips

and dropped his knife due to sweaty palms and he was still on edge .Immediately

Iris knew that when someone licks their lips when they are being questioned

they are about to lie or try cover their tracks and Bryce was doing a poor job

at concealing what he had done.

“your behaving

strangely you never cook, I mean if anything I’m thinking you’re about to tell

me something serious and I get the feeling that I’m not going to like what I’m

about to hear”

Her phone rang which annoyed Bryce so much so

that it was tradition in the house that she switch her phone off when she walks

through the door ,if not Bryce would do it .

“Please don’t pick

up…how many times do I have to remind you about that phone, if it’s not

Jonathan, it’s probably Jerry and you’re asking me what’s wrong…

Bryce was a

courageous man but however, what he was about to say even put him out of depth

and if there is one thing he hated it was being put out of depth.

“Never mind my phone.

What is it then? If you do not tell me I’ll find out soon and then I will be

angry and we don’t want that now do we?

I can go on all night and trust me I will find out ,it is just a matter

of calling a contact of mine overseas or better yet call someone who worked

with you and get them to give me the information I need.”

She said it in a

serious tone so serious that it flicked a switch in Bryce’s conscious and he

had to tell her the truth there was no other way. She knew him all too well

lying to her would be like telling a friend that you are fine when you’re not, she

could see through him. He hated what he was about to divulge.

“I slept with Gina,

are you happy now, I dishonored our engagement by doing the one thing I said

I’d never do again…”

Bryce’s heart rate returned to normal and he

was overcome with some sort of relief miraculously he was not on edge anymore

and it felt like a weight being lifted off his perfectly ripped chest which was

covered in a white, v neck shirt paired up with dark blue jeans .He looked so

remorseful and couldn’t believe what he had just said.

As hurt as Iris was

she had to ask the difficult question, she didn’t know what to say she just

stood there numb and in a split second it felt like hear whole

world was about to fall apart including

her heart . She came to a realization that; the man she once knew as the love

of her life had betrayed her in the worst possible way again she had been in

this kind of situation before, she never thought in her wildest dreams she’d be

in the same situation again all too soon with the same man

What had led to the

first argument they had was what led to the second one. Could this spell the

end to their relationship, or was there more.

“How many times Logan?

Cause I know you so well “ She closed her eyes and took a deep breath .

She force the words

out she had seen the look in Bryce’s eyes, the look that said it all the look

that said I have just gone and messed up what we had and It’s killing me that I hurt you the way I

did.

“Five times” Bryce

paused for what seemed to be three seconds his eyes were about swell up but he

held back and told himself he should be man enough and be honest because Iris

deserves to know the truth he also had something eating at him which led to his

unfaithfulness…”

“What; wasn’t I

enough for you? What did I do? I just said we needed a breather and that we

should rediscover ourselves not jump into bed with the next person.” Her voice

went all husky as she also tried to fight back the tears that were burning at

the back of her eyes and she could feel a lump in her throat.

Bryce replied “I

didn’t want to cheat on you it just happened I was drunk she was drunk we just

had the mother of all fights on the phone and during the 5 months we were shooting

we comforted each other, hell she was going through a similar situation, her

significant other was being an impossible man she came to set crying, I cannot

watch someone suffer like that and hell she gave me a shoulder to cry on when

we were on the verge of ending it all.”

Bryce knew that it

was a weak explanation , he did not want to be explicit he couldn’t bear the

thought of telling Iris what really

happened at the same time he was having

flashbacks about the five nights of passion with Gina.

Iris gained her

composure and tried regaining her self control as well as emotional control.

“I know I haven’t been the easiest person to

come home to but really Bryce how could you ,fine we didn’t talk and we were

not broken up we just hit a hiccup, that doesn’t mean that we are not engaged

or it’s over.”Iris paused and that only made the suspense of what she wanted to

say kill Bryce slowly. “How could you do this to us, who else did you shag

during our little hiatus “Iris replied sarcastically.

Bryce flipped and

discovered a side of himself he never knew, something switched on in him and he

retaliated with a vengeance, this however was for seeable.

“Yeah right you were

not the easiest person to come home to, you were always moody, if not

irritable, and I put up with that. I was there for you okay I get that you work

but ,you came home late ,left early, hell it was a miracle if I ever saw you I

was hurting .”Iris’s phone went off again and it was work; she hang up as she

is no mood to deal with her nosy boss who probably wanted her to fill in for

someone during the weekend she put the phone on the table.

“Why the hell didn’t

you call me yes fine I get that I’m sometimes moody, it’s just me deal with it,

you’re not Mr. Perfect. I was there for you, there during the 5 months we took

a break where you couldn’t even bother to pick up the phone and call or even

try and understand what I was going through. You just left with no warning”

Bryce came to a

realization that Iris was keeping something serious from him something that

could break them or give their relationship more character whatever the reason was

he was going to push.

“You couldn’t tell me

what was going on and yet you had frequent doctor’s visits. I asked you

countless of times what was going on you just up and left ,what was I supposed

to do , I couldn’t take it anymore, and every time I called the hospital I couldn’t get through to you why was that ? .

A lot of assumptions

went through his mind and he started thinking a lot of things he got more fired

up and infuriated. His face registered anger. His body was burning with furry,

he wanted to throttle someone, kick or punch something that’s how angry he was

like a volcano on the verge of eruption.

“I did not want to

put you through what I was going through please try and understand. It happened

too fast, if I had told you then you were going to drop the movie role and stay,

I couldn’t do that to you “

Fear crept over Iris

like an unexpected ice cold breeze on a summers day, besides being confused she

was afraid, afraid that she might have pushed

Bryce too hard, afraid that she didn’t know the man she was looking at

,but even more afraid that she might have sparked something in Bryce that might just set him off on a tirade

or worse make him go rouge.

The Phone rang again;

Bryce grabbed it and threw it against the wall with extreme force and fury he

let out a roar out of frustration. The phone didn’t break but it switched off,

he couldn’t remember the last time he was so furious and hurt at the same time.

“You’re scaring me”

Iris said with tears

in her eyes and a quivering voice because she knew what she had done

“I don’t know what

the hell to think! wait, wait were you pregnant and had an abortion for the

sake of your career” He was about to cry too at the fact that he was angry and

shocked that he just lost it.

“What was it then

Iris what cause if that’s the case you’re not the woman I fell in love with “

In disbelief Iris answered

Bryce she rolled her eyes and threw her hands in the air

“No I would never do

that to you”

She stood up and looked outside the window; it

was a beautiful view of the sunset kissing the city goodnight. There was a haunted house silence in the room

so silent that you could hear a pin drop and it would be so loud.

“How could you even

think that?” She took a deep breath and looked at Bryce with sad eyes and he

looked back with hurt and anger.

“Iris tell me it

kills me that I hurt you and the way I did it was unfair to you ;we used to

speak without words communicate so well .I want to fix us. “

Bryce

had calmed down and he started being doubtful, what was so huge that Iris

decided to keep this secret from him if it wasn’t a child then what was it?

What could it be? Who could it be? Who was the woman standing in front of him?

He even started questioning his own questions.

“What’s the use you

slept with Gina. Not once but five times, five times”

She repeated lifting up her hand signing the

number five. Iris Picked up her phone and got her car keys; she felt like

leaving running even well disappearing for a while until the fight she was

having with Bryce fizzled out like bubbles in a glass of coke light, but she

had to bite the bullet, grab the bull by the horns tackle the problem at hand

head on, she started the fire after all

Bryce dismissed her

comment and tried to dig and push harder he wasn’t going to go down quietly or

without a fight, if their engagement meant anything to both of them they would

be able to work out the problem that they were facing; but that was wishful

thinking Bryce knew he messed up but he had to know, he wanted to know, he

deserved to know the truth.

“We will deal with that;

what were you doing for 3months at the hospital Iris; no contact no nothing

what was I supposed to think”

Bryce wiped a tear

off his eye and he looked remorseful he was filled with confusion and hurt “don’t

you think I deserve to know?” his voice cracked at the last word.

“Remember the first

week when I told you I wasn’t okay and I went to the hospital”

Iris gained back her

composure and decided she was going to jump in head first she had too there was

no other way, he deserved to know the truth even though he hurt her.

“The week we hit the

rocks and you were way too evasive and I got the call from work and decided to

go without telling you “Bryce responded quickly he really wanted to know what

really happened, so he could make sense of how they got to that point they were

at now.

“yeah the week you

found me difficult ”she walked to the kitchen got a glass out of the cabinet

drank some water and she took a deep breath. Bryce got even more impatient.

“Just tell me already!

Or what do you want me to walk out again; I will walk out on us this engagement

if you don’t come clean with me” Iris took another big gulp of her water and

relived, what she wouldn’t wish even on her worst enemy.

“I was attacked on my way to work. I was stabbed someone

wanted to send me a message and I got it loud and clear.” She took a deep

breath although it hurt to breathe she knew how to handle the pain.

“ I was afraid! I

didn’t want to put you through a lot. Jonathan was there for me, he helped me

cover everything up only because I asked him to I take full responsibility, I

didn’t mean to hurt anyone least of all you okay.”

“You’re lying! I

don’t believe you Iris, that’s your, story? ”

Beyond disbelief he gave Iris a look that she

hadn’t seen in a while; she had seen it when they were dating back then and

that was when he was in a dispute on the pitch when he played full back for the

university rugby team. He managed to land himself a suspension but it was overturned.

If he could only overturn the mess he was in he’d be a pro at overturning bad

into good…

“you honestly think I

can believe you after what you and your

so called best friend did … he was there

for you and I was denied the chance to, yes I would have dropped everything

hell if I did that, I wouldn’t have warmed up to Gina ,we wouldn’t be in this

situation at all “

Iris walked to the

stair case even more hurt and angry and upset at Bryce’s reaction to her it

felt like he just committed relationship suicide.

‘yeah I thought it

was best you did what you loved and it

was a terrible accident in case you were

wondering and I didn’t want to get you back here for something that wasn’t that

serious. Since you don’t want to believe me fine, you just pulled the last

straw and oh gee guess what its short… you know I let this slide once but I am

fed up with you and your bull I’m not

doing this again.”

‘I don’t trust you at

the moment and what if you staged this whole attack thing just to spend time

with Jonathan, cause it clearly seems like we are all in a three way

relationship, he is married to Sasha his wife ,yet he is constantly at you beck

and call how selfish, no wonder she left town for a while thank goodness she is

coming back this week, and maybe just

maybe set proper boundaries between you and Jon will be set.”

“ you are a fine one

to talk after what you just did with Gina she is engaged she has a fiancé probably

pregnant with their child but you don’t care don’t you , have you any Idea how

much damage you have caused ,besides ripping my heart into shreds .”

Iris bit her bottom

lip to hold back a curse she felt like slapping Bryce across the face, but all

she could do was lift her hands up in the air in surrender ,only this time

Bryce had no control over her .

“oh go to hell” Bryce

retaliated trying not to touch her; he hated not being in control .

At that point Bryce

had felt a surge of heat moving through his body causing his blood to boil, he

was usually a man who loved to be in

control , a man who had self

control at some point and a man who was

loyal and faithful. He only messed up that one time and promised himself

that wouldn’t slip up but yet again it seemed like history

was repeating itself ,and once again he

couldn’t deal.

Iris got more hurt and

upset she decided that she had enough of the relationship and Bryce. When Bryce

told her to go to hell she fought back in her defense.

“oh I’ve been there

for the past two months and you know what the devil sends his regards”.

Tears started

streaming down Iris’s face she looked so hurt. ‘I can’t believe you just said

that, I cannot believe this is happening.”

Bryce felt so bad for

what he just said he couldn’t imagine doing to anyone what he just did.”Iris I

did not mean that, I really didn’t “.

Bryce cursed himself

for what he had just said he had hoped Iris would get that he didn’t mean it

but she didn’t …

“oh just like you

never meant to sleep with Gina and my boss and then tell me that I lied about

going through a stabbing incident that nearly cost me my life”

As hurt as she was she had racked up the

courage to do what she never thought she would do. It was to convince the man

she loved with her whole heart that she

wasn’t fibbing. She lifted her shirt up and Bryce saw the scars. what he saw

broke him it reduced him to tears how

could he not believe the woman he has loved so deeply for so long was he just looking for an excuse to blame

her for his indiscretions .

“Believe me now hah?

Who are you because the man I’m looking at now is a total stranger “

Bryce sat down on the

chair for him it had felt like he had just twisted the knife he stabbed Iris

with in the heart and killed their relationship even worse their engagement.

“oh my goodness” at that moment Bryce ran out of breath and

wished he could turn back the clock and take back what he had said and done .

“Iris please don’t go

stay, we can work this out I know we can get through this okay; I just erupted

blew a fuse but I love you”

Bryce tried to walk

to Iris and hold her; but she was too quick for him.

Iris ran upstairs and

started packing her overnight bag, while all this was happening Bryce was

banging on the main bedroom door that she had locked. When he had finally

managed to pry the door open without breaking it down, he went in thinking he’ll

find Iris sitting on the bed crying but she wasn’t there, he then headed

straight for the bathroom he still couldn’t find her, and then it dawned on him

that she must be in the closet. Bryce tried to open the doors but they were

locked too.

“Iris please open

these doors “He said so in a stern voice for a man of his stature he sure knew

how to get his point across. Without trying too much, Iris heard his vibrato

voice vibrate through the closet doors and it stopped her in her tracks.

“I have nothing to say to you. I really have

every right to end our engagement” She had already packed her bag and she was headed

to the bathroom for her essentials, but not before she ran straight out of the

closet into Bryce’s chest and somewhat secure arms.

Bryce cradled her

head with his hand and held her close with the other one, he said nothing; all

Iris could hear were sniffles she dropped the blue and white striped duffle bag

on the floor and hugged Bryce back.

“I am so sorry “

His voice had gone

all raspy when he held her then he realized that something didn’t feel right,

he was holding the same woman but she was skinnier. When or how it happened was

the next thought that crossed his mind. Bryce sat Iris down and held her close just

to calm her down, he was an expert at getting Iris to see things differently or

calming her down when she was about to go over the edge he knew how to touch

her which made it harder for her to fight.

“Oh my word; you have

lost so much weight, honey what really happened on the night of the attack?” He

looked in her dark brown eyes and saw anger, fear and hurt.

When Bryce had

loosened his grip and her arms slid of his back she headed for the bathroom in

panic mode and started packing.

“I can’t do this… it

was a hit Sasha put on me I ignored her, I ended up with stab wounds, Jonathan

probably figured

out what she did so he came to my rescue and well he stayed with me

through it all, I know I should have told you what was going on . I didn’t want

to. It seemed like the best decision given the situation”

Bryce hit back with a

clever remark.

“You do sports not

investigative journalism, Sasha’s brother is a sportsman that’s the only person

I know…. “

Iris stood at the

door of the bathroom with her vanity case in hand.

“Well genius; what is

the one thing sportsmen fear besides losing and not performing at an optimal

level?”

Bryce sat on the edge

California king size bed.” Being charged with unruly behavior?” He shrugged his

shoulders up and down.

“No the one thing

that can cause the downfall of an epic sports career” she walked to her bag and

put the case beside it only to lock eyes with Bryce.

“I could have lost

you and all because you were trying to tell the world, the truth about Mark

Smith, he did it at school but I couldn’t have predicted he and Sasha would try

and shut you up. I’ve known but he was my friend and I was sworn to secrecy”

At that point Iris

sounded nasal and bit angry at Bryce he could hear it in her voice.

“You knew and you

didn’t tell me. He was your friend, hell he was everyone’s friend, Sasha knew somehow ,I found out when

I went to give Jonathan his coffee beans and I saw blood …” she held her

mouth to cover a scream

“never mind what I saw all I remember from

that night when I got attacked was a blade stuck on the side of my chest ,I had

a couple of bruises on my arm and someone knocked me out cold, not before I saw

Jonathan running my way . You knew all along“

Bryce walked to her

…”show me your scars “

“Besides the one that

you inflicted on me which is invisible at the moment? Or do you need validation

for what I just told you since; you’re having trouble believing me or anything

I say” Bryce walked towards her direction and stood behind her.

“Iris I want to see

what they did?” he said softly

Iris reluctantly

lifted up her pony tail revealing a white bandage. ” I have shown you too much

When she turned

around they were facing each other again only this time there was no tension.

She stood on her toes in her black knee high boots and gave Bryce a kiss

goodbye; she was wearing blue skinny jeans, a blue and white stripped long sleeved thermal top paired up with a

black leather jacket and a navy blue chunky scarf. She twisted off her

engagement ring and put it into Bryce’s palm and pushed back his fingers.

” I have to go Logan “she

picked up her vanity case and swung her duffle bag on her shoulder.

“Don’t do this not

now not when we have so much to say to each other “Bryce said with a worried

tone and a face that was full of tears that almost tore Iris apart.

“Bye Logan, I will come get the rest of my

stuff later. Oh and the sooner you can accept that your buddy Martin is guilty ,

maybe just maybe we can find a way to fix this mess. I cannot believe you kept

such a secret away from me besides Gina… I am afraid I don’t know the man I’m

looking at. ”

She walked out the

door and ran downstairs out to her car in the drive way. She opened the boot

threw her bags in, closed the boot, went inside the car and put the key inside

the ignition and sat back looking at the

house she once called a home .She took a

deep breath started the car and drove away crying . The last time Bryce had

cheated on her she had mastered the art of both crying and driving at the same

time this time however was different in so many ways. The last time Bryce did

what he did, he begged her to take her back, he proved to her that he was a

changed man and he even went as far as getting professional help; which is hard

for a man like him because he always loved control, and could sort most things

out himself. None of what he did before to prove his loyalty could ever make

Iris take him back this time.
