What if his daughter had never called?

What if he hadn't answered?

Would they have kissed? Or would something else have stopped them?

These were the questions that kept playing through Alex's mind as she stood shivering in the street watching as the man she (still) loved ran after a possible sighting of his wife.

She had known from their second beginning that there was a chance of his wife coming back but she still couldn't resist.

Couldn't resist allowing herself to fall in love with this man all over again; though if she were being truly honest, she never really got over him to begin with.

Couldn't resist the temptation of a not-quite-forbidden love, but there were certainly restrictions.

Couldn't resist flirting with him, just because she loved catching him off guard.

Couldn't resist getting drunk with him and tempting fate. Yet again.

Because when it all boiled down to them, she never could resist.
