For my mother and sister, warriors that carry their scars with pride and grace.
This story is a gift to them. They're the culprits who initiated me into fanfiction.

The scars of your love remind me of us. They keep me thinking that we almost had it all.
The scars of your love, they leave me breathless. I can't help feeling,

We could have had it all, rolling in the deep.
You had my heart inside your hand, and you played it to the beat.

~"Rolling in the Deep," Adele.

How did we get here?

I lay awake in my bed, watching the sun rise through my window, as that question ran around in circles in my head.

How did we get here?

It was all so simple at first. Boy met girl, time passed, boy asked girl out, time passed again, boy fell in love with girl and he proposed, time passed yet again, boy and girl lived happily ever after.

Simple. Perfect.

So where did we go wrong?

How did we get here?

How was it that between meeting you and asking you to be my wife, you went and married someone else? Was it my fault? Should I have asked you to be mine that same day I met you? Should I have begged you to leave him after I saw you in his arms?

When did everything turn so complicated?

How can I ever forgive myself for loving you? For wanting to take you away from him?

How can I steal you from the man that gave me everything without asking anything in return?

How did we get here?

A/N: Thank you to anyone who will join me on this ride. English is not my first language, and I'm new to this thing called fanfiction, so I beg for your understanding and patience.

No schedule for updates. Some chapters will be longer than this, others probably shorter. I write when I have time. With two sons, a day job, and night classes, it can be a little tricky.

Thanks to MariahajilE for offering to beta this story. I truly appreciate your help.

Thank you for reading.
