I travelled to Italy to heal not to fall for a man who’s clearly allergic to commitment.
At least, that was before the rainstorm of the century that cut our vineyard lunch short forcing Gian DeLuca and I into the same small villa. A girl can only resist a man like him for so long, even when her heart is on the line. And mine is already broken from a loss so devastating my friends whisked me away on this Sicilian adventure. One that we never expected to include a hot American marketing executive/part-time pool boy serving us drinks and telling us how he exchanged a summer-long stay for odd jobs around the estate. One that jokes about his sister forcing him here on “some Eat, Pray, Love” adventure when he really just wants to drink his way through Sicily.
And clearly from the way Gian so effortlessly flirts with me, he has more than just good wine on his summer to-do list. But I’m here to sort out my future, not help Gian add me to his list of his Italian conquests.
Back to that rainstorm I mentioned.
The one forcing me to make a choice with no good options. Loosing myself to him doesn’t sound very enticing, unlike the promises Gian’s making about how good it could be between us.
Resisting, he insists, is futile.
And I’m starting to wonder if he might be right.
