“Tell me again why we didn’t marry sooner?” asked Amanda.
“I really don’t recall,” said Rick not looking at her.
“You’re lying,” she said.
“Yes I know,” he replied and then paused. “I guess I feared commitment and even though we had Julia, I still felt like I could just walk away from the relationship.”
“What changed your mind?” Amanda inquired.
“The simple fact that you were willing to stay with me or let me go,” he replied. “I didn’t feel trapped and you allowed me to make the decision myself.”
“You know you’re trapped now right?” she asked smiling.
