Shamed By Her Kindness

I fell in love with a thirty-eight-year-old guy at work. To this day, he still doesn't know. He was so kind. He always was the perfect gentleman. But I knew then, as I know now, that I can never have him because he is married, and he is a minister. He has never thought of me or treated me as anything more than a friend. In fact, he made that very clear early on in our friendship, but that didn't stop me from dreaming about him. I really wanted to be with him. He is a great friend, and we always seam to know what each other is thinking. And, yes, I really get turned on when I'm around him. I just don't see how he couldn't know. I could really rock his world. The only thing he doesn't know is how much I love him. Then one day, I saw him with his wife. She wasn't the best to look at, but he treated her with such care and sweetness. I couldn't help myself. I had to talk to her. So, I just walked up and introduced myself to her. She was so nice and sweet that I felt ashamed. The worse thing is I can't stand her because she is so sweet, and she has the man I'm in love with.
