There are times when you stand on the cusp of moments so huge, you know you’ll remember them forever.
Isaiah is my safe. He always has been.
Guys like him don’t go for girls like me. I’m a toy to them. A game. And these types of guys, they all have the same rules of play: smile, trick me into thinking that they like me, then toss me to the side once I’ve been used.
“You’re beautiful when you laugh. You should laugh more.”
“Life hasn’t given me much to laugh about.”
“I could change that.”
“Trust me.” “I can’t.” I whisper. I trusted Scott, my mother, and my father. I trusted Luke, my aunt, and Isaiah. All people who left me. All people who faded into darkness. My heart has been ripped multiple times and each time I repaired it on my own. I know my limits and if someone rips me apart again, I’ll never find the strength to pick up the pieces.
Leaving her would be like tearing off my own arm. I’ve never been in love before. I thought I had been, but I wasn’t.
"It's our rain Beth."
“I won't let you go." I blink. As if he could stop me. "You won't let me go." "No, I won't let you go. You're mine and I don't lose.”
"There is absolutely nothing you can do to ever get me to give you my name or number"
"I bet I can"
People who make me feel are worse. If I don't feel, I don't hurt
How many of us will have the courage to be ourselves regardless of what others think?
“You're a lot like that bird in the barn. You're so scared that you're going to be caged in forever you can't see the way out. You smack yourself against the wall again and again and again. The door is open, Beth. Stop running in circles and walk out.”
"I told you I loved you in this rain and when you doubt my words, I want you to look at this bottle.”
Isaiah is my safe. He has always been. He's that place where i fall when the world turns into chaos.
"You should laugh more," he says.
I swallow. "Life hasn't given me much to laugh about."
"I could change that." Ryan invaded my personal space and every part of him connect with a part of me.
