“Promise me you’ll never forget me, Haley.”
I knew I sounded desperate but I needed her to know that. I didn’t think I could handle the shit that she would be with another man.
“Cole, you’re the first man I fell in love with and hoped that that will be forever but, as you can see, it’s not going to happen. You’re the first man that made me alive. You’re the first man that made me feel the real life. You’re the first man that made me realize I am special and worthy. You’re the first man to break my heart when you left me for the military. You’re the first man I felt worth forgiving when you returned telling me you still love me. You’re the first man that made me happy, always. You’re the first man that made me devastated when I knew that you knocked up my best friend. And now, you’re the first man I will ever let go, knowing it will hurt me as long as I will remember. I’m pretty sure I won’t forget you.”
She flashed a weak smile and I tried my damn best to hold back my tears. I didn’t want this to end. If the fuckers who I thought were my friends didn’t set me up, I would be with Haley. As long as forever goes.
I gripped her hips tightly. I felt the coldness of her forehead and the sultriness of her breath against my lips. I looked at her eyes and saw its redness. I hated it, hated that I was the one who caused me. I wanted to erase that pain from her but she just wouldn’t let me. Not if I would have a family with her best friend.
She touched my cheeks and leaned forward. Electricity poured me as her soft lips warmed mine. I responded immediately as I touched her lower lip with my tongue. I felt her grip to my collar and our tongues fiercely battled. Our kiss became intense but she gently pushed me. I was breathless and my mouth missed the sweet taste and hot feeling of her mouth.
She looked at me and gave a weak smile. The next words that escaped her mouth made me furious and wounded. But then it was all my fault. I deserved this. I deserved not to have the one girl I loved and hurt.
She walked away from me and I felt a tear rushed to my cheek. I then realized that watching her leave was the most excruciating feeling I owned.
