Foolish Pride

Lately Danny Jamison seems to be finding fault with everything his girlfriend, Emily Harris, has done. No matter how much Emily explains to Danny just how wrong he is for falsely accusing her of cheating on him, it seems Danny just doesn't want to believe her. But this time Danny has stepped over the line and not only does he accuse her yet again of cheating on him, but also he decides to do it while she's out with her girlfriends. Emily is mortified at the scene he's caused and decides that she's had enough. So they breakup figuring this is the best decision for the both of them. Only problem is they both realize that they have strong feelings for each other and not being with one another is going to be harder than they originally thought.

Does Danny decide to beg Emily for her forgiveness and would she even consider accepting his apology? Could they try one more time at being together and could they make it work this time around if they did? Or has Emily had enough of Danny's accusations and moves on with her life without him?

Ms. Rogers has penned this short story to be packed with such heartfelt emotions that you just can't help but hope that Danny and Emily can work through their issues together. At first I hated Danny and everything he stood for. He had no right constantly accusing Emily of cheating on him just because he was an immature guy with plenty of insecurity issues that he was dealing with. I have to be honest and say that it took me a bit of time to even warm up to him because he was just too immature for my taste and I felt that Emily needed to stick to her guns with him. She needed a mature man in her life and not an ignorant boy as her partner. If you're looking for a short read that will help you escape your busy schedule for a little while, than you have found the perfect story to do just that!
