I sit outside Liam’s and my house. I have to think things over. Should I tell Liam what I found out? Or will that just hurt him more? But if it was the other way around, would I want Liam to tell me? I think I would.
I need to tell him. No more lies. No more secrets from now on. I walk through the door and call his name. He walks out of the kitchen and he sees my bloodshot eyes.
“I want to tell you but then I don’t want to tell you at the same time,” I say, putting my head on his shoulder ad he wraps his arms around my waist.
“Tell me,” he says, leading me to the couch.
“I went to her apartment and she as with a guy. They were talking about how she shouldn’t be mad at us because she had been cheating on you for months. I walked in to confront her and things got ugly. She called me rude names ad admitted that she is the one who set my place on fire when she snuck in and went on a secret date with her secret boyfriend,” I saw the look in his eyes as I spoke and knew I should not have said anything. I feel more tears come, “oh, Liam, I shouldn’t have told you. I am so sorry. I just didn’t want to keep any secrets from you. I thought you would want to know-.”
Liam cuts me off by putting his hand under my chin. “Shh, Emma, it is okay. I am glad you told me. I don’t feel guilty about what happened now. Now I don’t have this burden of thinking myself as a cheater to carry around on my shoulders anymore. She was, not me. Now the weight has been lifted. And now, I can fully forget about everything that has happened and move on from the past. I can focus on being here with you, in the present,” he wipes my tears away with his thumb and continues, “I was thinking. What if you stopped looking for an apartment? You can live here with me. What do you say?”
I feel a smile creep up on my lips, “I would love that.”
“Good, because I would too. Because I love you, Emma.”
“I love you too, Liam,” and I truly meant it, this time, with all my heart.
