Good Girl

There’s always a risk when you take a walk on the wild side. A risk that you may not be able to come back. That’s what Erin Chandler fears when she meets a hot sculptor who takes what he wants and gets any woman he wants. Malachi Miuro is definitely not the right man for Erin. He’s unstable, without a real job, and he knows how to take a girl with his dominant ways. Erin just wants to keep her head down so she can keep her job, but with Kai in the mix, that’s impossible. Kai knows he’s all wrong for Erin, but he wants what she’s got. If it means he has to break through her defenses to free the wild child within, then that’s what he’ll do. Even if it shatters her world. But can Kai learn to love Erin without trying to control her? Can Erin become who she’s really meant to be, or will she reject Kai along with her deepest dreams?

    Later on, while she was doing her laundry and staring off into space, thinking about how gorgeous Kai was and how he could get any girl he wanted, he sent her another text: Do you have a private email where I can send you a note? Not work-related.
She gave him her gmail account – ErinErinErin. Then she kept checking the browser on her phone until his email popped up. It was from his usual address.

You said something about relationships last night. What is it you’re looking for?

I’m looking for love, like most people. But I’m not in a rush.

Re: relationships
 
If you’re going to be that short, we could have texted!
 
Tell me what you really want. Unless you’d rather sit down over dinner tomorrow and discuss it? But you seemed uncomfortable talking about it, so I thought it would be easier for you to put your thoughts down in an email.

    Well, if he wanted a real email, he would have to wait for it. She wasn’t going to tap out something incoherently on her phone. So she closed the browser on her phone and sat back to think about it. What did she want? A career, a husband who was a partner in life, a nice home and two kids so they would each have a sibling, unlike her.
    But in the short term, she wasn’t sure. She wanted to leave the door open so she could see Kai again.
    As soon as she got home, she sat down with her laptop without even putting her laundry away. At first she tried to write out why she wanted to see him again even though it was so out of character for her to pursue casual sex. But all she kept coming up with was: he smells so good. I like the way his hands feel on me. I want more….
    So she went back to his original question – what do I want? She tried to write it out so that her idea of the perfect relationship could be stretched to fit this situation. But when she read back her few tortured sentences, it was not right.
    Erin went and put her laundry away. The soothing routine chore put her back into the proper frame of mind. He said she had to be honest with him. And the truth would come out regardless.
    So she sat down and wrote it out in a stream of consciousness, not letting her doubts or fears stop her:

Re: relationships
 
I want a man I can trust and depend on, someone who will be there in the hard times and laugh with me in the good times. I don’t just want a dad for my kids. I’m not going to settle, and I won’t get married if I can’t find someone who can be a real partner to me. I want to be in a relationship for the long haul, and not fear he’ll give up when things get rough. My parents are still together, but sometimes I thought they wouldn’t make it. I would hate to have to go through that with my own kids. But I’m not in a rush. I don’t have a timeline or anything like that. If I can’t find the right man, then I’ll keep focusing on my career. I picked the green industry because I want to make the world a better place, and if I don’t have a family, I will concentrate on doing that. But I do want love. And I want to try new things—that’s one reason I moved to New York, so I could get out of the life I’ve always known.

    She knew she had thrown in that last sentence so even if he didn’t want the rest of what she wanted, he would like that.
    She emailed it without editing it. He wanted honesty. There it was. Let’s see how he responds.
