I revisit that day more than I care to admit. They are memories I should forget, but can’t.
He won’t let me.
The resolve to move beyond my wild past buckles under the pressure of Blake’s relentless pursuit, but he doesn’t know the secrets that keep my heart caged.
He can’t see the scars that prevent me from truly loving someone else.
I won’t lie, I still want him. I remember the sensation of his touch and yearn for the warmth of his skin against mine.
But my desire doesn’t outweigh the shame of knowing I can never be what he needs.
His determination is foolish, but the intent is clear.
Blake is bound to prove that we are destined for one another.
