My last name was royalty in New Orleans, at least, I guess to those who mattered. But to me…my last name was a curse. High society. Expectations. Old money. Politics. Everything I despised. If only they could see what happened behind those high-society closed doors. The same doors my daddy paid a lot of money to keep closed.
Deceit. Destruction. Bribery. You name it, my family was guilty of it. My father’s throne was built on lies. Our family was the epitome of faux royalty. Then, I fell in love and oh what a fool I was. I was just a pawn in my father’s game. And to use the man who claimed to love me…
Five years ago, I walked away, and left my father to his riches. And that man who left me in broken, jagged pieces? Well, what goes around, comes around.
Four years in a prison cell changes a man. I spent those five years fighting to survive. When I emerged, I was nothing like the man who had walked through those cell doors all those years ago. I overcame things that I never imagined I’d be faced with..
The one person who promised to never leave, did. The life I thought I knew, gone. The future I once thought I had, up in smoke. Like so many things in my life, my story and my future were stolen from me.
Sure, it’s made up of the usual parts…a beginning and an end. But just like every story, there’s a hero, there’s the villain…and then there’s me. And this is the beginning of the end.
“Then life changed again when I walked into your office and came face-to-face with you. All at once, all of those memories came flooding back. Not just the ones of the time we spent together, but prison and everything in between. I was shocked, and angry, and hurt all over again. Somewhere between now and then, I lost myself and I am just now figuring out the man I need to be. I became hard, cold, and jaded. Scared to ever let anyone get close to my heart again after it was destroyed. My daughter is the one who thaws this cold piece of flesh that’s barely beating inside me. She shows me every day that no matter what I feel inside, I am worthy of redemption. I am worthy of her love.”
