“Would you be okay with me living in Buffalo?” I enquired nervously. He could very well say no, or that he needed space, or one of the thousand paltry excuses I’d fed to potential partners over the years. God, I’d really been a dick to a lot of good women. I wondered if there were some ways to make amends to all those women I’d treated so poorly? Sending apology roses and boxes of candy could be a start if I could track them all down. Shit. That was a lot of damn flowers and chocolate but maybe it would alleviate some of the guilt.
“I would love that. Move in here with me.” He gave my hands a squeeze. His hands were so strong and yet could be so gentle. Probably the poor kid was afraid he would snap my old, brittle bones if he clutched me too tightly.
“Are you sure? I think you should think that over. You’ve just gotten some independence. And I’ve never lived with another person before. Ever. I suspect I’d be a terrible cohabitator. I’m set in my ways. Never was good at turning over new leaves and all that.”
“Ah bullshit, you’re not set in your ways. Look at how much you have changed over the past couple of months.” Okay, he had a point but still…
“What if you grow to hate me? I’m a massive asshole at times. Ask any woman that I ever went out with.” He leaned in steal a kiss. That did help quell some of the worry but not all. “How about I get a place close-by and sign a year lease? At the end of that year if we’re still a couple then I’ll move in with you and we’ll buy matching towels.”
