Excerpt:
“You OK?” Pete asked once the credits were rolling.

“Yeah, I guess the past few weeks are just coming out. I’m sorry,” I told Pete feeling embarrassed by the emotional display.

“It’s fine. Don’t worry about it. Do you want to talk about it?” he asked.

“No, I’m OK. Really,” I said but then I started spilling my guts anyway. “It’s just Roger left me for another girl. He didn’t cheat, or so he said, but still it hurt, you know. I knew her. I know it was because she was prettier than I was. I thought I was getting over it,” I said as I sobbed. I didn’t mean to unload on Pete but it needed to come out and that’s when it did.

“I doubt that,” Pete said. I looked at him, wiping tears from my cheeks.

“You doubt what?” I asked.

“That she’s prettier than you,” he said and smiled at me. I felt his arm pull me closer.

“What? How do you know that?” I asked. His words warmed my heart but the noise wouldn’t let me believe he was saying what I’d heard him say.

“I don’t need to see her to know she’s not as beautiful as you are. What’s his name? Roger? He’s an idiot. I’d be honored to be with a girl as pretty as you,” Pete said and I simply stared at him. I looked hard but I couldn’t see a hint of anything but genuine sincerity in his eyes.

“You mean that?” I asked him knowing there must be a catch but I wanted to hear more.

“I wouldn’t say it if I didn’t. I do miss that Santa outfit though,” he said. I was at a loss for words. I’d been wallowing in self-pity since Roger left me for Becky Salazar. I hadn’t felt pretty or sexy in weeks. Who was I kidding? I hadn’t felt that way in months. When Roger and I got along we got along great but I’d never heard him say anything like Pete just did. I was speechless as my noise tried to overcome Pete’s words.

My past, all of it from my parents abandoning me to Roger leaving, told me I wasn’t anything special, I wasn’t really worthy of anyone’s love. I knew different, but deep inside there was nagging doubt. Reason fought with emotion for control. Was I going to accept what I knew to be true, that I was a good person and worthy of love, or give in to my doubts and fears? I remembered what my grandma had told me after Roger left me. She told me that I couldn’t be pretty wrapped in self-pity.

She was right and I realized that with Pete I was being myself. I wasn’t wallowing. I was more concerned about him enjoying the holiday than my situation. I was trying to be cheery for him but the more time I spent with Pete, the better I felt. I wasn’t cloaked in my depression over the break up with Roger and maybe Pete found the real me attractive.

“I don’t know what to say,” I finally said.

“Don’t say anything,” Pete said and leaned into kiss me.
