She was gone.
I had been so caught up with the events of what happened to Anita that I hadn’t even realized she had fled. Now, two days later, I came home to find her gone, the ring I had given her by the photo she had given me. I had let it happen by keeping her out. Jason was angry with me, as was Jean-Claude, though he was better at hiding it. But I did not blame them.
Willow was…Willow, smart, resourceful, and powerful all wrapped in one little redhead. But she wasn’t Anita, and I nearly always reminded her of that fact. It was not fair to her; I had not been fair to her. Though it pains me, I am glad she has fled. She deserved better than me.
“Are you going to go after her?” Jason had asked when I had passed him in the hall.
Would I? We had been together for months. And she had loved me, every part of me, but I had never returned that love. Anita was not even my love, she was Jean-Claude’s so what is it that is holding me back? Hope? Hope that one day we could be as we were of old with Juliana? I let the ring I held fall from my grasp and into the open drawer. All of the things that reminded me of the redhead were in there. Her photos, the ring, and a cute beanie baby she had found of Count Dracula, she found it very amusing when she gave it to me. A slight smile touched my lips as I remembered the blushing and babbling that went along with it. It had been cute, adorable. Willow was cute and adorable. But I wanted more, I wanted Anita, and Willow should not be her replacement, it wasn’t fair. I would not go after her. My mind made up, I closed the drawer and locked it; and turned to find Jason in the doorway staring at me.
“You’re not going after her are you?” he asked, sounding like he disapproved.
“It is none of your concern” I replied, he shook his head and walked away.
“You didn’t deserve her Asher”
As I watched him leave I knew he was right.
