Billion Dollar Man by Ali Parker
I never wanted wealth, power, or the responsibility that goes with it.
Making a difference by fighting fires was my dream. That and a pretty girl to love at night.
But life didn’t ask me.
After struggling through the business world, I finally have a chance to return home to chase my dreams.
The girl next door, my best friend’s little sister, was there waiting. And she's all grown up.
But she’s not too thrilled to see me back.
But I’ll change that. I can’t help but fight for what I know we could be, no matter what it costs me.
When I finally start to melt her heart, life calls me back to the city, back to the grind thanks to tragedy.
It’s her or my future, and I have no choice in the matter.
My father’s company is my only legacy, or is it?
A little life is growing inside of her, and that changes the game. My self sacrifice doesn't seem so damn important anymore.
I might have been forced into becoming a billion dollar man, but I’ll always be a small town guy at heart.
And that pretty girl that stole my heart all those years ago?
She's gonna be mine. Like she always has been.
