Truth and consequence
About a year ago, my i made a friend during an online writing course. At first I only talked to her when I needed an outsiders opinion on storylines, or someone to proofread. Then I went through a storm and my life and she was the only one there for me. Feelings bloomed from there; a year has gone by, and I fell in love. Proposed on July 4th and attempted to move her in this past weekend; only to discover that she's been lying to me. Her parents aren't dead and she's only 16.
I was raised to never make promises I couldn't keep, and in 23 years I never have broken one. But I promised I'd always be there for her, love her, and never love another. I confess, I'm upset over the lies, but not mad (like everyone wants me to be). I care about her too much. So now here I am stuck between moving on, and loving her. Apologizing to her parents for something happening that I didn't know, or just letting it go.
