OK so Scott and Jared love each other, that much is obvious. They start a relationship and Scott is over the moon with happiness! He wants to exchange commitment rings with Jared. All looks to be perfect, right?
“Jared, I love you with all my heart. I didn’t think I could love anyone like this. I know that God has brought us together by fate and we’re meant to be. You’re the most important person in my life! What I’m asking is… will you go steady with me? We’ll agree to be only with each other?” Scott reached for a small flocked navy velvet box he’d hidden on the picnic bench. He opened it and presented the sterling silver rings.
Jared gasped aloud and his eyes welled with water. Scott’s blue eyes looked hopefully into Jared’s teary brown ones. The blond took his boyfriend’s hands and kissed them softly. He broke into sobs, which confused Scott a bit, but Scott hugged him anyway.
“Shhh. Hey, what is it?” he queried.
Jared finally calmed enough to talk. “I… I don’t want to hurt you, but I can’t go steady with you.”
“What? Why can’t you? Jared, if you ever loved me, there has to be a reason!”
Jared caught his breath and tried to look into Scott’s eyes. “I’m sorry, I just can’t… I don’t think I can commit to you like that.”
Scott’s facial expression turned from one of concern to deep hurt in a split second. He broke into tears and violently pulled his hands away from Jared. “I see,” Scott said icily. He closed the navy box and whisked it away from the table.
Jared clamored for Scott’s hand but was denied. “I’m sorry, Scott! I’m so sorry!”
Not to leave you with a cliffhanger, huh??? LOL
