The Lies We Tell but the Secrets We Keep, Part 11

Writing is my passion. I have an undying thirst and quest in the field of writing. Some eat, drink, or use drugs when stressed; I write.


The Anniversary karaoke night went off without a hitch, Gina and Tim's family and friend had a blast. Everybody knows Tim is the best when it comes to being an attorney, but who would ever guess He could sing and took up music in school. He begins studying and training from the age of 15 in high school in the arts of the limelight, musicianship and He used to love singing and writing songs.

But at the age of 17, Tim lost his best friend to violence and the guy who killed him walked because he had a good attorney. The young teen wrongly convicted and jailed was only 16, He was tried as an adult, sentenced to life without parole. Everybody and Tim knew he was innocent, but he was appointed to an attorney who didn't care nor attempt to defend him.

Tim was hurt and angry that the guy that killed his friend walked and the young man that need defending went to jail for life without parole so he vowed to make a difference, He changed his major to get his degree as an attorney graduating at the top of his class as the number one student, so he can protect the innocent.

Upon graduation, Tim spends long hours and most of his day making good on his promise, he never had time for this crazy thing called love, well that’s the way it seems to Tim. He has never been in love until that day he took a break to clear his head from a trailing case, walking on the beach when he saw Gina and fell in love. Tim did not know how to approach her, but he could not keep his eyes off her.

Things worked in his favor when he finally worked up enough nerve to talk to her and learn she needs an attorney to defend her. Gina is a woman who has been abused most of her childhood, therefore it made love seem so complicated to Tim, but he rode into her life like a knight and shining armor and stole her heart.

In fact, when Tim first met Gina, she hated all males because she was abused by several males as a child. Love was something that she thought didn't exist. Gina is a beautiful woman who loves dressing nice and looking nice and up until she came into contact with Tim that was the closest, she ever comes to dealing in love or the sensation of love.

After Tim asks Gina to marry him, she stood up and ran out of the room, Tim couldn't even fathom what was going on in her mind. But because of the closeness, he bonds with her, he realizes it will never be easy to love her, but he willing to love her anyway.


After falling in love with Gina and learning a little about love, Tim came to the conclusion love is complicated, but whatever worth having never come easy and he understands Gina needs someone who will take the time to guide her in her fears, comfort her when she's having a flashback of her past and he's willing to be there to do just that, make himself available at the times of her needs.

Tim rushes behind Gina to come to her rescue. When he catches up to her and asks her what’s wrong. Tears flow down her face as she replies, "I am a mess right now and I’m sorry for running out on you." "How can I give you an answer to your question if I can't pull myself together to appreciate and think that I am absolutely worth of loving you and giving you an answer?"

Tim replied, "Love is messy," but we are 100% responsibility for our lives, emotions, and feelings. I know you and I love and appreciate you for who you are, love comes with a little bitter and we can change that, but one thing that will never change is the way I love you and I want to spend the rest of my life with you.

Tim hugs Gina and tells her I can't even imagine or begin to describe what it’s like even to just have you in my presence, you complete me. I understand that the past has a way of haunting a person down, follow them around like it’s a ghost trying to overtake their soul. Nonetheless, we can get through love challenges together.

Tim takes Gina hand and escorts her back into the club where she makes an apology to her and Tim's family for running out. Then she looks into Tim’s eyes and answers his question by saying, "I feel so honored to be asked by the man I love with all my heart, I am so proud to say, "Yes" I will marry you, family, I am so in love with this man and I can't wait to wake up each morning next to someone who is my everything.

Tim slips the ring on Gina's finger and embraces her with a hug that made her feel like He will love her through anything. He assists Gina to understand that love isn't 'Easy" it is chaotic. It comes with challenges where learning each other weakness and strength come with patience and taking one day at a time.


Alexandria and her date Jyres are so happy for Tim and Gina. Tim and Gina plan to get married in three months. Robert had the pleasure of meeting Gina for the first time and they hit it off well, her two-half-sisters, Litha and Holly will take working on to obtain any kind of relationship.

Robert wife Jilla also develops a relationship with Gina, she’s a nurse and she will be able to assist any question Gina may have as Gina is in nursing school to become an RN. Jilla and Gina exchange telephone number.

On the way home Tim, Gina, Alexandria, and Jyres talked as they carpool to the Anniversary night. Tim drop Jyres off at home first, he told Alexandria he calls her as he wants to talk to her about an urgent matter. Alexandria replied, I’ll speak with you then.

When Alexandria got home, she was so tired that the moment her head hit the pillow she immediately fell asleep. She wondered what’s so urgent Jyres want to talk to her about, it was still on her mind so much as she sleeps until she dreamed, she was on the game show, “Love Triangle.”

“Love Triangle” is a game show hosted by Wendy Williams. It aired on GSN, April 11, 2011, and ended on August 28, 2011. A person who is caught in a "Love Triangle" would come to the show to get guidance from Wendy which suitor is best for them. From the dream, Alexandria is having, she has a “Love Triangle” going on in her head. Alexandria is dating Jyres, but in her mind, she is stuck between two guys because she has not put to rest her old flame.

What will Jyres say to Alexandria when he calls? Perhaps whatever it is has a lot to do with the long conversation he had with her dad, Tim at the Anniversary night. Why didn’t Gina hit it off with her two half-sisters? Maybe because she witnesses Holly making up excuses to put her hands all over Tim and Litha encouraging it. She welcomes her brother with open arms and she even accepts his wife, Jilla and they are close friends.

Stay tuned as I answer all questions, share the details of Gina and her newly found family relationship, What Jyres will talk about to Alexandria, the update on Tim and Gina wedding, the plan Holly have when it comes to Tim. The update on Officer Hill amateur son and so much more in, “The lies we tell but the secrets we keep, part 12.”
