Unique & Intense Romance
“This is it, isn’t it?” Her voice is low, soft, and as sad as her eyes.
“Yes.” With one word, I crash my world for a second time this week. I don’t have any deep words to sugarcoat my departure.
I hate to prove her right. She insisted I’d leave once I saw the real Willow.
Only days ago, I thought she’d be the one saving me. That special person who would erase the loneliness in my heart. Instead, she needs more saving than I can possibly give her. I wish I could tell her how she has become to mean so much to me; that when I leave, the most important piece of my heart will stay with her.
We are too damaged to be together. The specialist said there’s hope for her, a treatment which will give her control of her life. As for me, I have no fucking idea what’s next.
Clearing my throat, I make my case. A plea for her to understand my point and not to hate me when one day she looks back on today. This was my chance not to be the guy who pushed Willow Beesley off the ledge and abandoned her at the bottom of the cliff to bleed.
“Willow, you are loving, caring, talented, and passionate about everything that touches your life.” I kiss her hands.
“Save the speech, Hunter.” Her face is serious, her tone detached but I can hear the lingering hurt. God, this is going to kill me.
“Give me a chance to explain why you have to leave me and go on with your life.”
She touches the base of her delicate neck, frowning.
“This might seem like I’m the one who is leaving, but it’s you who will hopefully move to a better place.”
“We’re all broken, some a little more than others, Hunt. Please, this wasn’t your fault.”
“You know, yesterday I thought I had lost you forever.” I lift my hand, running the back of it around her delicate neck. Fuck, I’m going to miss her. “The seconds I held your lifeless body showed me how easily you could break me. You need someone stronger, someone, you don’t have to save. A man strong enough to stand by your side when life is tough and you can barely open your eyes.”
One heinous tragedy changed my entire family forever.
That morning, my world crumbled. I lost my parents.
Now, I live by certain rules.
Don’t let anyone know what goes on inside your head.
Stay away from crowds.
Never fall in love.
Though, that was until her. She has me questioning everything.
It’s the haunted eyes.
The sultry voice.
The sweetness under her armor.
Everything about her captivates me. The surge of energy we create with one touch has me searching for her, even when there’s also something dark underneath her bright smile.
Unable to resist the desire toward her, I break my rules giving her all of me while expecting all of her.
