One word can hold tremendous power. One word can change everything.
I never imagined it would come to this. That I would fall for Micah Reed.
That I would open my heart once more. And get it crushed. Again.
The moment I let him in, the second our relationship evolved, fate threw an epic curve ball.
One we can't ignore. One I don't know I can endure.
But call me a glutton for punishment.
One word stole my breath. One word had my knees ready to buckle.
I refuse to believe anything without proof. Refuse to let someone ruin my life.
Call me a d-bag, I don't care. Deep down, I know the truth.
Now, if only Peyton would believe it, too.
My relationship with Peyton is headed in the right direction. Her fire is no longer fueled by hate.
Now, I know the taste of her lips. The softness of her skin. The warmth of her touch.
And no one will steal her from me. No one.
I fell for Micah Reed.
I fell for Peyton Alexander.
Was it all for nothing?
Will she abandon me when I need her most?
