A Question of Regrets (#97 Accident)
“I didn’t mean to fall in love with him.”
“You had a girlfriend.” Bradford stated.
“Yes, whom I was supposed to marry and procreate with.”
“But you didn’t want to?”
“I didn’t think I’d get a better offer.” Charlie said with a shrug. “First time I saw Ian I thought ‘who’s this useless, arrogant thug, what’s he doing on my turf and I wonder what those lips would look like sucking my dick?’”
Bradford laughed. “Well at least you had your priorities strait.”
“Five years later when I realized I could have Ian the way I wanted I almost fainted with joy but I still wasn’t thinking about love. I wasn’t going to set myself up for that fall. Told myself it would all be fun and games.”
“That could have been a dangerous game.”
Charlie smirked. “Don’s not the only adrenaline junkie in the family, I just look innocent.” Charlie’s face fell. “That’s where things went bad with Amita. She fell in love with the act and I couldn’t keep it up anymore. I didn’t mean to hurt her anymore than I meant to fall in love with someone else.”
“Do you actually regret these accidents?”
“Not really, no.”
