She stops and turns around when she hears my boots crunching
in the gravel behind her. The cold look in her eyes is
almost enough to freeze my damn heart. “Don’t you dare follow me, Easton.
Turn back around and go inside.” With pained eyes, she points at the building
and screams. “GO!”
After yelling at me, she immediately turns back around and
starts walking again to get away from me.
Ignoring her demand, I stalk toward her, wrapping my arm
around her waist right as she attempts to straddle her motorcycle.
“You’re not driving home,” I say, while squeezing her waist
and pulling her against me. “I get that you want fast right now. That you need
a rush to clear your head. Trust me, I know you. I’m the one that got you
addicted, but you’ve had too much to drink.”
“You don’t need to worry about what I do,” she growls out in
anger, before elbowing me in the stomach in an effort to get away. “Dammit! Let
me go. I need to leave. I can’t be here.”
She’s still trying to fight me, so I carefully lower her to
the gravel and trap her under my body, pinning one of her legs underneath mine.
“Give me your keys,” I growl, an inch away from her lips. “Don’t make me force
them out of your hand. I can pin you under my body all night if I fucking have
“Yeah, I don’t think my brother would like that much.” She
attempts to buck me off with her hips, but it does nothing.
I smirk down at her and push my hips closer against her
body. “Fight me all you want. I’ll win.”
“Fuck you, Easton!” Breathing heavily, she lays still and
fights to control her breathing from below me. After a few seconds, her eyes
meet mine, and she grins. “Fetch.” She tosses her keys across the parking lot
and then pushes my chest, speaking against my lips. “Now. Get. Off.”
I release a hard breath and take a moment to analyze her
face. It feels like forever since I’ve seen it.
Her big, gray eyes are framed by long lashes and her dainty,
freckled nose is now pierced and flaring out in anger.
Catching me off guard, she pushes her way out from under me
and closes her eyes as she runs her hands over her face and lays back. “Just
leave me be. I don’t want to be anywhere near you. I’ll have Hope take me
“You really mean that?” I question with a tight jaw. “You
still hate me after three damn years?”
“How can I not?” she bites out, before jumping to her feet,
ignoring my hand as I reach it out to help her. “You tore my heart out. Now get
out of my way.”
I bite my lip, holding in my anger as she pushes past me and
I’m still standing out here with my hands in my hair when
she walks back out a few minutes later following Hope to her old, beat-up
My heart pounds relentlessly as I watch them hop inside and
You tore my heart out.
Those five words hurt like hell. She’s always been good at
making me feel.
