Colton's holding me tight as we slow dance. He tilts my head back and lowers his lips to mine. He's a friend, I can't do this. I push him away and run out into the night hearing him calling after me. What did I just do?
I've been shattered in the past. I'm better now but my heart is still healing. Can I go there again? Love Colton and risk my heart? Can I trust him to not shatter me?
My heart is saying 'kiss her, kiss her while my brain is saying 'just be friends and wait for her to be ready.' My heart is winning. What did I just do?
I'm a love 'em and leave 'em kind of guy. But when I'm with Betsey Ann, she's a love 'em and keep 'em kind of girl.
Can I piece her shattered heart back together again and make her love me?
"Yes, Betsey Ann?"
"I'm handing over my heart to you. Right now. Please, please don't shatter it." I whisper into his chest, hugging him tighter.
I hear him gasp, pulling me tighter and he kisses the top of my head.
Holy shit. Is she telling me that she's in love with me like I love her? Is she finally trusting me like I want her to? Is she going to give us and this relationship a chance to move forward and we can get a real go at this? How do I read this from her?
She has her face in my chest, her arms gripping me so tightly and I want her to hold me tighter. To never let me go. I'll never let her go. She's mine and I love her with everything that I am. She owns me. She always has.
