Everyone always said that love was enough. It wasn't. Not when your soul was shattered.
“He wasn’t what sent me running. He was what made me want to stay.”
Their story isn’t over…
"Blaire, I'm not a romantic guy. I don't kiss and cuddle. It's all about the sex for me. You deserve someone who kisses and cuddles. Not me. I just fuck, baby. You aren't meant for someone like me. I've never denied myself something I want. But you're too sweet. This time I have to tell myself no." ~ Rush
"The problem was that you fascinated me. I'll admit I was immediately drawn to you because you're gorgeous. It was breathtaking. Then...then I got to know you, I was hypnotized by your laugh. It was the most amazing sound I'd ever heard. You were so honest and determined. You didn't whine or complain. You took what life handed to you and worked with it. I wasn't used to that. Every time I watched you, every time I was near you I fell a little more." ~ Rush
"His eyes never left mine. I held his gaze. I could even see the fear. Then there was the love. I saw it. The fierceness in his eyes. I believed it. I could see it clearly. But it was too late now. The love wasn't enough. Everyone always said that love was enough. It wasn't. Not when your soul was shattered." ~ Blaire
Then there was despair -
And after that there was nothing...
"He wasn't what sent me running. He was what made me want to stay."
“The love she left behind will be the reason dreams are reached. She was the rock in a world that was crumbling. Her strength will remain. It’s in our hearts.”
We are going to talk first. I want to see you smile and laugh. I want to know what your favorite show was when you were a kid and who made you cry at school and what boy band you hung posters of on your wall. Then I want you naked in my bed again.”
“My mother and my sister’s graves are home. I want to be near them. I’ve stood here and listened
to y’all tell me my mother was someone who I know she wasn’t. She would have never done what you’re
accusing her of. Stay here with your family, Abe. I’m sure they will love you as much as your last one did.
Try not to kill any of them,” I spat.
I tucked my gun back under the seat and backed out of the driveway. I didn’t look to see if they were all huddled around poor Nannette. I didn’t care. Maybe she’d think twice before she fucked with someone else’s momma. Because, by God, she better never talk bad about mine again.
