I never listen to reason. It’s a problem, I know, and I’m working on it. Not really. But I should be.
For good measure – and because old habits die hard – I reach a hand for his chest to make sure I’m good on my feet.
Yes, his chest is as solid under that jacket as I suspected. Check.
“What do you want, Linnie?”
The words feel caught in barbed wire. “I-I told you. I want to get my life together. Stop snogging men for meaningless reasons.”
His eyes fix on mine. Intense, daring. I should look away, but I can’t escape their pull. I feel my resistance to him dissolving into dust. “Tell me what you want right now.”
It’s like he’s hypnotized me.
“I want you.”
“I know I can’t have you, but I’m not going to pretend I don’t want you. It’s fucking impossible.”
This woman…she’ll be the end of me…and the beginning of everything I’ve ever wanted.
“When it’s your life, you get to choose. And I choose you.”
