That’s young, she said very sharply. That’s very young.
Don’t kid yourself. He looked straight through me. I’ll never want anything more from you than your body. So either give me what I want— He threw the condom at me and I watched it fall to my feet. Or leave me the hell alone.I couldn’t hold back the gates any longer. Tears spilled from my eyes. Go to hell! I ripped the bracelet from my wrist, wincing at the sting as it broke off and threw it at his chest. With my hand covering my mouth, I turned and ran to my car.
A loud sob escaped my throat and the tears broke through harder than ever. My feet pushed me to my car, my pulse racing, and my heart pounding through my ears.I was such a fool, always wanting to believe the best in people. First Mark and now Logan. I was never enough.Slamming the driver’s door shut, I tried unsuccessfully to control the frenzied sobs and even my breathing.
With multiple deep breaths, none seemed to ease the pain slicing through me. Why did he have to do this to me? My head throbbed trying to figure out if any of it was real over the past few months. Was it all some sick game to get me in bed? City guy bored in the country. I was going to give him my heart, hand it over so freely and all he wanted was—no, I banged my hands on the steering wheel. I needed to calm down or I’d never make it home.Sniffing loudly and wiping away my tears, I turned on the engine and looked back once more at the alley where I’d left him.
There, standing in the shadows staring at me with hooded eyes, was Logan.
Refusing to let him see me break down into a sobbing mess anymore tonight, I rolled back my shoulders and jutted out my chin as I stomped my foot down on the gas.What is it? I asked, a little uneasy. The last time he’d wanted to show me something, it had been his MS treatment. Maybe I was just stressed out because we were still waiting on Hunter’s test results. The dream hadn’t helped my nerves either.
Don’t worry, it’s something good. Come on, it’s crazy warm out.He motioned toward the door. It would certainly help me forget about that horrible nightmare and the little smile on his face intrigued me. Plus, it would be a shame to stay in the house all day. Hunter was probably worried about his test results too, and staying in all day while I moped around about my dream wouldn’t do anyone any good.
I rubbed my eyes, and yawned. Just let me get changed real quick, okay?He shrugged. Yeah sure, but hurry up.
