So this was me in high school.

I was always the fashionable one. I know it sounds obtuse to say it now, but I was pretty cool. I mean, I was the youngest girl to become the cheerleader captain in our whole school ever. I was pretty proud of myself then. But, now I guess it's not much of a gloat. It hardly helped me later in life so I guess it was kind of pointless...

So this was me in high school.

I was always the fashionable one. I know it sounds obtuse to say it now, but I was pretty cool. I mean, I was the youngest girl to become the cheerleader captain in our whole school ever. I was pretty proud of myself then. But, now I guess it's not much of a gloat. It hardly helped me later in life so I guess it was kind of pointless...
Anyway, this is me now. Grown up and wiser.

I've haven't really changed much, I guess. Just dyed my hair lighter and look at bit older. But that's it. I like looking at my old year book. I can laugh at all the memories I have of the people in there. I didn't really stay in touch with any of my old friend which is a shame. I miss them but at least I still have those who mean something to me.
Like Tom.

He's nice, right? And sweet. And kind. I love him however cliche that sounds. The thing is, he's not my husband. Not even my boyfriend. No, my husband is called Jack and I've lived with him since I left college. But, since I got back in touch with Tom five years ago I can't stop thinking about him...
But look at him!

Just look at him! He's amazing. I don't know why I never noticed him at school. Well, actually, no, I do know why. It's because I was too busy being Miss Popular to see anyone apart from jocks. Which I know was a mistake now. Look at him. Those eyes. They make me melt. But, I have to get over him. And this is why...
Meet Maddie.

Maddie is Tom's wife. He was already married when he moved to the area but even so I still hold onto the foolish hope he may leave her for me. But I know he doesn't like me like that. That's why this has to stop. I love my husband. But I love Tom too. But I can't. I just can't.
There's only one problem.

We're practically neighbours. And because we knew each other in school, they sought solace with us when they were new here. So now the four of us are in this happy, cheery, tight little group. We are best friends I suppose. Meaning I have to spend evenings with them. With him.
And it breaks my heart.

When they're around here I can't look at them at times. It's just they're so ... in love! I just turn my back and pretend I can't hear his dirty little flirts. At the end of my piece, they turn to me and clap, telling me how I've improved at my playing. And everytime I see her cheeks are flushed, little red apples sitting just under her eyes, glowing with lust. It makes me feel sick.
So I try and forget it.

I carry on as I did before he moved here. Going to work each day then coming home again. Then, somehow, I don't know how, I lie with Jack at night and tell him I love him more then anything in the world. It's a wonder I don't choke on the words each night. But I guess it's true. I do love him more. I mean, even if Tom threw himself at me, I still don't think I could bring myself to leave Jack.
But if that's true, why do I still think of Tom non-stop?

I need to get a grip, it's just I don't think I want to...
Hope you enjoyed the first part of my story!

Check back soon for Tom's Prologue!
