Tomorrow C. Monet returns with The Will To Forgive, and we have one final sneak peek to share with you!
Forgiveness is said to be for the wounded, the played, and the jaded but sometimes it requires more than a simple thought. It requires will, action and work.
Sage Lowe is smacked with reality when her dream job puts her on administrative leave for a mishap that happens on her surgery table. Down in the dumps, she picks herself up and decides to capture what she’s been missing while she gave her life and heart to Mount Clear Hospital. Venting to a friend, the perfect man with the perfect body approaches with promises of putting a smile on her face. Leery, she can’t help but feel like she owes it to herself to do something for herself.
Kyree has a soft spot for women and doesn’t realize that this is the cause of his many brewing troubles. When he spots Sage he can’t help but want to lock her up and make all of her troubles disappear. It would do him justice to spend time being in the presence of a beautiful woman while he is also in a rough spot due to a family emergency but falling for her was never in the plans.
Spending time together has consumed them both. It’s consumed them so much that the truth has been buried, and when exposed the will to forgive becomes harder than expected. Will the will to forgive be mastered or will this love connection be severed from lies and dishonesty?
“Sage,” I said stepping out. I startled her and she dropped a few of her bags. Rushing to help her pick them up she wouldn’t look me in the eyes. I removed her sunglasses because if she wanted to be petty I would be also. “Why haven’t you been answering my calls?”
“I didn’t know I had to Ky,” she responded. I was taken aback by her demeanor and the way she was speaking to me. I wanted her to come out of her shell but not if it meant she would be cold with me. Stepping back, I stood and crossed my arms over my chest.
“Real talk what’s up? You get some dick and become a new woman or something?” I was feeling like Maxine for a minute and ready to do some crazy shit. I was really feeling Sage and it intensified when she put that monkey on me. There was no way she was going to treat me like dick on demand and me not catch an attitude about it. She was complicating shit and it was blowing my mind.
“Kyree, we can’t, and you know this. You have a whole life that I know I won’t fit into.”
“You wouldn’t understand.”
“Help me understand because you damn right I don’t. We had some good times together and now you wanna play me off like some simp. What do I have to say to penetrate your heart? What else do I have to do to make it clear that if it ain’t you it won’t be anybody?”
“Kyree, stop,” she cried.
“No tell me what I gotta do and I’ll do it.”
“There’s something I haven’t told you and it won’t blow over with you. I’ve been dishonest,” she admitted. I stepped back because I couldn’t believe after all this time we spent together she felt she couldn’t be honest with me about whatever she was hiding.
“Continue,” I urged leaning up against my car.
“I don’t want to do this here. I’ve tried to tell you several times but then we would kiss, or you would make me feel like what we had was more important. I like the way you move, the way you carry yourself, the way you look at me and after a while I didn’t want that to end so I kept it to myself but I-” before she finished her sentence I rushed her lips and kissed her passionately. If what she was about to say would take them away from me I wanted one more go. Gripping her waist, she moaned in my mouth and I brought her closer.
“Kyree, really? You thought you would be able to just leave and not ever have to see me again?” I heard from behind me.
It was Maxine and her voice sent chills down my spine. Turning around I faced her, it was time for this to end. Pushing Sage behind me, she grabbed onto my shirt with shaky hands. Every damn time I thought we were in the clear this bitch was showing up.
