To prove it, here's a little teaser!!
Thayer’s hand firmly held one of her own. Severine wasn’t going to look away. It was time to confront her biggest fear, perhaps her biggest desire, directly.
He was simply a guy. But the way he was starring at her lips made him so much more than simple.
“Can I tell you something?” Thayer asked quietly.
Severine barely heard him. She nodded her head, and he smiled back lazily. Even drunk, he was gorgeous perfection.
“I saw you first.” He rasped out deeply. “Remember that. I saw you first.”
Severine, trying to keep the conversation light, smiled weakly. “At the coffee shop?”
His head shifted back and forth, while his eyelids drooped down. Severine was waiting for him to pass out and drift off into a deep sleep. He shifted slightly. “I’ve seen you many times before that.”
She swallowed loudly, “When?”
“Around campus with your friend, Lilly. At a couple of parties.” Slowly, his lips rounded into a small smile. Instinctively, Severine held her breath. “You know, you’re like no other girl I’ve ever met? I love that you don’t put up with bullshit.” His eyes poured out all of his secrets. Her heart was ruined. Without trying, she was falling for him. “You’re rare Severine. Just like your name. It’s impossible to forget you.”
She blinked over and over. Severine couldn’t reciprocate anything worth while. Her brain was mush. It was melting fast.
“Can I tell you something else?”
No, no, no.
Severine sucked in her cheeks tightly and nodded stiffly. “I stole Macsen’s phone, and texted you tonight.”
“So I was talking to you.”
“Would you have came over if you knew it was me?”
Swallowing felt painful. “Honestly? No.” The truth had never tasted so bitter.
“Then you can’t be mad at me for being deceitful.”
As she sat there in a state of confusion, Thayer drifted to sleep. Severine shifted away from his bed and reached over to cover him with a blanket.
