I knew Evie Wright was special from the first time we met. Even with her sad eyes and heartbroken smile, I was attracted to the beauty she so desperately tried to hide.
Emotionally battered and bruised, Evie had experienced one too many of the hard truths life had to offer. She was drowning in heartache and I wanted to be the one to rescue her.
I wanted to shower her in love and warmth and show her we could have brighter days. But she was too scared. Scared to move forward. Scared to move on. And I was scared of losing her.
Together, Evie and I were more than special. We were worth the fight, and worth the fall. I told myself I would give her time and space, but instead, I think I just made it easier for her to walk away.
* Light My Way was previously titled Devastate.
“When I say I want every layer gone, it has nothing to do with your body and everything to do with what’s underneath.”
I knew her body before I knew her.
One night turned into two.
Two nights turned into three.
And before I knew it I was hooked.
But I no longer wanted to be the man that occasionally warmed her bed, I wanted to be the man by her side. The man she invited into her world, the man she let love her.
But Courtney didn’t want that life, she was a closed book, filled with pages of details she didn’t want to share. She wanted two-dimensional conversations, instant gratification and fleeting moments.
I had every intention of showing her just how good we could be. I had patience. I had time, but when her biggest secret is accidentally revealed I realized I didn’t really have anything, because I never had her.
*Find My Way was previously titled Deviate.
