I pull out the letter in the box and start reading.
I don't know whether this will get to you before, after, or on our anniversary.
This is the anniversary I was going to ask you to marry me, but I suppose my stupid act got in the way. I am going to make this right between is, and we can be happy again.
I have been working on making things right, I am helping inmates with their education and I am also taking Bible studies to make myself and better man.
I am hoping that I can make an early release, and we can make this right and back to normal.
Passing the letter to Nick, I walk over to the kitchen to pour myself some wine.
“Eric, I need you to find out everything you can about Kim and James case.” I turn to see Nick already talking to his lawyer on his phone. “Call me soon as you can.”
Walking over to him, I pass him a glass of wine. “So, dinner?”
“Really? You don't want to talk?” his hands waving in the air.
“I’ll make dinner.” I walk away quickly, not wanting to get into another conversation that includes James.
“What? What Nick? What do you want me to say?” I yell, my voice full of anger. “Am I scared? Yes. Am I worried? Yes. Is that what you want to hear?” I put my glass on the table and stare at Nick. “I’ll make dinner.” I continue walking to the kitchen, standing against the worktop. My whole body tenses up at the thought of James getting out.
“I’m going to my office to finish some work.” Nick says walking past me.
I know he’s frustrated, I am too, yet we’re arguing already, and we’ve only just started seeing each other.
Am I really going to let James get in the way of me and Nick?
Taking out my phone, I text Zoe telling her to call me when she is on her break. Connecting my phone to the music dock I stare out the window looking at the beautiful view.
Four years ago.
“Zoe we need this.” I say, holding up a snow-globe.
“No, we don’t.” She yells at me from the other side of the store.
Putting the snow-globe back I continue looking through the gift store, trying hard to find her cousin something to take back to California.
“I hope you enjoyed your stay, Stacey?” I ask, holding a magnet.
“Loved it, had so much fun.”
“You got everything?” Zoe walks up behind her.
“I think so, just need a snow-globe.” Stacey looks at Zoe, and I pull a funny face at her.
“I’ll go get it.” I say, walking back over to them. As I go to pick up the snow-globe so does someone else.
“I’m sorry…” I begin, looking up at a man, about the same age as I.
“I’ll get the other one.” I say, not able to take my eyes of him, his blue eyes looking at me.
“No, take this one.” He passes it over to me.
“Thank you.” I pause waiting for him to say his name.
“Thank you, James.”
“And you are?”
