Delirious, with fever, he called out her name. She didn’t answer, so he yelled out, “Help me Rhonda, you have always been my best friend and I can’t live without your love. I will be alone forever, if you are not in my life with me. Please don’t marry that jerk, as you need to guard your heart against him and watch for the red flags and don’t ignore the warnings. You are much too trusting, and I know that he is going to hurt you. He is a charmer and although he probably looks good on the outside, he will cause you trouble later, like he did with every other girl he was with. Once you get to know who he really is, you will see that he is not normal. This selfish person will ruin your life, as you will not be able to bring out the best in him, because he will never change, and he doesn’t even realize that he has flaws.”
Rhonda looked at him and said, “What are you talking about? There is something about him that attracts me like no other and it may not be perfect for us now, but over time, things will improve, especially as we get to know each other better. I like you, but the moment I wake up, before I put on my makeup, I say a little prayer that he will become a better person. Signed, sealed and delivered, I’m his, as it has to be him, because I love him so. You don’t own me, I’m not one of your toys. You don’t own me, and you can’t tell me that I shouldn’t see other boys. My love has come along, and my lonely days are over.” I told her that she could go where she wanted to go and be with whoever she wanted to be with and then I assured her that he doesn’t love her like I love her. Knowing that people tend to fall in love too quickly, and while they are in the romantic phase, they are always blind you to their partner’s imperfections, I said that she should not be like a fool that rushes into love eventually ends up finding their partner to be irritating them and driving them up a wall. I told her, “You make my dreams come true, I only have eyes for you and God only knows what I’d be without you, woah, my love, my darling, I will always love you, but my advice is to get out now, before you are trapped with this loser, and if you don’t leave him, then stop dragging my heart around.”
