About The Author:
Excerpt:I turned to leave. There were a million things I wanted to say to Justin, but without a guarantee that he’d respond the way I wanted him too, I was too afraid.
“Yes?” I was almost at the door.
Justin hopped up on the table behind him and rested his feet on a chair. I waited for him to talk. “I’m scared,” he finally said.
“Scared of what?”
“That you’ll break me.”
I walked over to Justin slowly and stood in front of him. “You don’t believe I care about you?”
“I do. But feelings change, people change.”
“I don’t know what I’m supposed to be saying right now. I was the one who asked you out. I was the one who told you I was interested, but you turned me down, twice.”
“Just hear me out, okay?”
“Ok.” I took a step closer to him and he reached for my hand.
