But then I woke up one day… and wanted her back. I overreacted that night.
I’m rolling my eyes as I look back at 19-year-old Owen. I should have just kept the ties cut, moved on, and had an awesome college experience. But at that time, Stacy was all I knew. She was the only relationship I’d ever had. I felt like I needed her.
So late that night… it had to have been 2 or 3 in the morning… I sent her a text, asking if she’d come down to see me. She replied immediately. Yes. She’d come in the morning. It was, like, a one-hour drive for her to come to me from her parents’ house. But the morning came and she headed down.
