Ten years ago, I
kissed my best friend.
Six years ago, my
life changed and I went from being an unknown kid from a small town to a
world-renowned rock star. Before leaving Gaspar, I told Ali we’d still be
together. I made promises I didn’t keep, and I lied over and over again. I
threw our plans out the window and made a life for myself.
I’ve barely had time
to go home, because touring keeps me away. We haven’t been in touch in years,
but after this tour, I’m heading home to find the only person who knows my
deepest, darkest secret, and beg for forgiveness.
Ten years ago, I
kissed my best friend, and his name is Alejandro Barerra. My Ali.
He may never forgive
me for the broken promises or for breaking his heart, and I’m afraid he’ll
never want to talk to me again, but he’s the only one who knows the real me,
and I’m determined to win him back. Even if it means risking it all.
“Have you not heard what I’ve told you?” he asks, taking a step forward.
“You’ve said I’m everything to you. Yeah, I heard that.”
“But,” he offers, knowing I have more to say.
I drop my arms and grip the edge of the dresser. “But those are just words. We’ve said a lot to each other over the years. You’ve consistently told me one thing just to do something that completely contradicts it. Why should I believe you now? Or ever?”
“I’m trying to get you to realize I’m not like that anymore. If I say something, I want you to believe it. I’ve had years to dwell on my bullshit. I’ve had so many regrets, and honestly, if I was in your shoes, I don’t know if I’d forgive me. But you’re better than me, Ali. You always have been, and you make me want to be better. For you.”
My heart sings at his words, but I can’t allow myself to be naive. “Let’s pretend I tell you that I forgive you for everything and that you do have a chance. Then what? This is the problem we always had. I let you suck me back into a secret relationship because you weren’t out yet, and that’s still the case. I will not be a skeleton in your closet. I will not be forced to love you in secret.”
He takes the remaining steps to reach me, wrapping his hands around mine. “Tell me I have a chance, Ali. Tell me you’d give us one last shot and I’ll risk it all. I’ll risk everything for you. For us.”
