Like Father Like Son
I laid my husband to rest….
Scott was my world and my future. His love for me transcended the dimensions of time and spaceâ€”having made provisions for me in the event of his death. He was after all in a war zone and the odds were high he may not come home. But now I canâ€™t help but think about the new man in my life â€“ my husbandâ€™s father.
Maguire creates a desire deep inside of me I never knew existed. This is more than lust. I keep on asking myself the same question. Have I fallen in love with him because he’s so much like my late husband or because he’s his own man? Only time will tell.
After all, you can’t choose love, it chooses you.

â€œI love this place!â€ she yells over the loud music, asking about my time here with my son, when he was alive. â€œYou and Scott came here, often?â€ she asks.
â€œYeah, many times. It has the best burgers.â€
Sheâ€™s looking at the menu, her eyes big at the portion size. â€œYouâ€™ll have to roll me out.â€ Just then, the music lowers a little and we donâ€™t have to yell at each other. When I came to pick her up tonight, sheâ€™d been crying. Iâ€™ll try to do anything to make her forget what tomorrow truly is.
Our server comes over, kneeling, flirting with me. â€œYou both are a beautiful couple.â€ Yet, her arm is all over mine.
â€œUm, listen, bitch, you better step back a bit,â€ Holland begins because the server thinks Holland is mine, yet, sheâ€™s fruitlessly flirting with me.
She smiles at Holland, too. â€œOh, honey, Iâ€™m sorry. I didnâ€™t mean to overstep, as a matter of fact, Iâ€™d take you both in the mix.â€ My mouth falls when Holland stops to process all sheâ€™s said. â€œSorry, honey, I wasnâ€™t coming onto just your husband, I hadnâ€™t gotten to you yet, sugar.â€ And she winks at Holland. â€œSo, what would you two beautiful people like to drink?â€
After she takes our order, Holland twists her body toward me, and sheâ€™s somewhere between hysterics and anger. â€œHey, wife?â€ I ask, going off of the serverâ€™s assumptions of us. â€œYou got pretty territorial there,â€ I tease, loving it, seeing green in her actions.
â€œWell, she assumed we were a couple and she blatantly flirted with you so I had to stake my fictional claim.â€
â€œSure, whatever you have to tell yourself.â€
By the way her jaw is almost sitting on the table, sheâ€™s still a little shell-shocked. â€œDid that just happen?â€ she asks. I nod yes and she has her phone whipped out so fast. â€œWait until I tell Teagan. Sheâ€™s going to flip her lid. According to her, sheâ€™s the only girl who can hit on me.â€ Even in the absurdness of it all, Iâ€™m glad our server has given Holland something worth laughing about. She surely will need it to get through tomorrow.
