He was never going to be one of those men. He didn’t need to be tied down. His freedom was his sanity. Emotions and attachment were unnecessary. The wall he surrounded himself with was built on a foundation of arrogance. Twelve hours was his limit of needing someone. Until her. Her smile tamed him. Her laughter infected him. A wrecking ball of a woman. His wall demolished in a matter of days. The need to be near her was so overwhelming it hurt. He was never going to be that man he remembered, as he knelt down on one knee.
