So this may be the last one I post before the book is released. I kept it short and sweet. I chose a part that doesn’t identify which person Becca is talking with for a few different reasons… mainly because I didn’t want to give to much away. If I tell you how it ends you won’t really need to read it. Hopefully you’ll enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it.
“I love you, you know that? More than I can describe and in so many different ways. I love the way you laugh. I love the way my heart rate picks up when I get a text from you or see your name on my phone when you call. I love that you know me better than anyone else. I love that you believe in me and trust me.”
There was a long pause before he continued. “What I don’t love is knowing that I wasted so much time trying to fight the feelings I had for you so that I could save our friendship. I don’t love knowing that there is someone else who gets to hold you, to kiss you, to be there for you because I can’t be. I don’t love that I am going crazy and doing things that make you angry. I don’t love crossing the line with you because it makes me not trust myself with you.”
Holy crap! He’s just declared his undying love to me, and all I can do is stare at him. His profile was beautiful with the moonlight shining in the window next to him. When he turned to face me and our eyes met, I don’t know why but I reached out and cupped his cheek in my hand. He slowly leaned into it and closed his eyes. What the hell was I going to do now?
