We have an eleven-year-old daughter who is so smart and talented. I can’t believe how fast they grow up. She is turning into quite the young lady. She aspires to be so many things and I encourage them all. She loves to write songs and has even tried her hand at writing a book. Maybe one day she will follow my example.
Being that I am from a small town, I have made some long lasting relationships. I have two best friends that I have known for most of my life. We have continued to stick together over the years and we are always there for one another. I couldn’t imagine my life without them.
Animal lover I am not, but I have a headstrong dog that is the absolute best-behaved dog I have ever seen and a cat that drive me insane, but I love her nonetheless.
I have always aspired to be a neonatal nurse and I continue to work towards that goal. Maybe one day it will come true. However, writing has become my new favorite love.
I never would have dreamed that I would become a writer, but some really great people convinced me otherwise. Eventually I decided to give it a try and what do you know? I just finished writing my second book and I couldn’t be happier. I will continue to write in my spare time with hopes of it becoming a full time career at some point in my life.
So take note, I am just a small town girl trying to bring light to your darkness, anything is possible if you work hard at it. So hold your head high, get out there, and do what you love.
I’m not sure who was more dumbfounded, because when I turned to walk out the door he was standing by the door completely shocked.
He stammers. “Arissa, you look absolutely beautiful.”
“Thank you, is it too much?” I ask nervously.
“No not at all, you are just so gorgeous; I’m going to have to keep a close eye on you. Some other bastard might try to take you from me.”
“Well you better stay really close to me then, we can’t have that happening,” I laugh.
Christian chuckles, “Woman you are too much.”
When we make it to the parking lot, I notice there is a horse and carriage waiting there for us.
I think Prince Charming has been watching Cinderella too many times. People don’t do this kind of thing now a days.
“Shit, can we just do it now? Just hearing you say those things does things to me. I already crave you, I don’t know how much longer I can wait. I don’t care about waiting till marriage anymore, all I want is you.” ~ Arissa
