Chapter Four Teaser: (Edwin and Abigail)
I pressed my lips into a sour smile. “Eddie, the cab sounds like a good start. But I told you I don’t have a date. We can go there together, but that’s as far as it goes. After that, you’re a free man.”
A smile crept over his mouth, lighting up his miserable face. “I’m already a free man baby.”
I slapped him on the shoulder and for a minute I started to believe that everything was going to be okay.
“Seriously though, I won’t be doing anything more to hold you back,” he said. “That night we will go to the party together, but we’re going single. I’m saying you can do whatever or whoever you want, without feeling guilty. I’m done shooting daggers at every guy that hits on you.”
I smiled softly. “Whoever?” I tested, trying to be smart with him.
He stepped closer to me, hiking my heartbeat and the temperature in my cheeks. He raised his sharp eyebrows, a serious look painted on his face. “Don’t get me wrong. I still love you Abs,” he whispered in a low deep voice.
I closed my eyes to mask my feelings. “Don’t say that. You really can’t say that anymore,” I breathed. My eyes fell to the floor.
“Fine. Have it your way. I won’t say it, but you can’t stop me from feeling it,” he answered, as he exited the room, clearly annoyed with me.
I had to share this, just so you didn’t think that Edwin doesn’t care anymore. He does. So much. J
