I raised my brows, challenging him to dive in, and as I expected, he didn’t let me down.
Why wouldn’t you think so? She seemed genuinely surprised.You never answered my letters.
Dozens of letters. I wrote to you for two years without receiving a single reply.She slowly shook her head before lowering her eyes. I didn’t know… she said finally, quietly, and he knew it must have been her mother checking the mail, removing the letters without her knowledge. It was what he had always suspected, and he watched as Allie came to the same realization.It was wrong of her to do that, Noah, and I’m sorry she did. But try to understand. Once I left, she probably thought it would be easier for me to just let it go. She never understood how much you meant to me, and, to be honest. I don’t even know if she ever loved my father the way I loved you. In her mind, she was just trying to protect my feelings, and she probably thought the best way to do that was to hide the letters you sent.
That wasn’t her decision to make, he said quietly.Would it have made a difference even if you’d got them?
Of course. I always wondered what you were up to.
No, I mean with us. Do you think we would have made it’?Okay, now that’s just insulting! She feigned a pout and reached over to smack my chin up, closing my mouth.
Sorry, it’s just…what are you talking about, sisters?Julia laughed again, staring at me as though I’d grown two heads. My brother is in love with you, Cassandra! Hell, I’d bet good money that I’ll be attending your wedding next year.
With an awkward snort of a laugh, I had to remind myself to breathe.You are insane! Married? To Logan? I wasn’t sure if I should laugh or cry.
