They say patience is a virtue. (Yeah, right.)Timing is everything. (Sure thing.) All good things come to those who wait. (Really?) If that’s the case, how long does a guy wait for the girl before he becomes a chump?
I’ve been best friends with Ellie Green since we were on the high school swim team and I was dating her best friend. A lot has changed since then, except now I’m in love with my best friend.
I started seeing Ellie differently in college, but the timing was never right between us. For years I’ve stayed neatly stowed in the friend zone. Until this summer when she lost her job and moved back to our hometown.
That’s when it happened. I finally made my move to escape the dreaded friend zone.
Timing, however, wasn’t on my side. Now that I have my chance, Ellie may not stick around to see where things lead.
And I may be stuck once again in this waiting game until she decides what she wants - my friendship or my love.
