“You didn’t have to be so mean to her.”
“She wouldn’t fuckin’ listen to you. I’m not going to stand here and watch someone push you around.”
“Right, and let me guess, you’d have done it for anyone?”
“Yeah, I would have,” he said, snatching up his water bottle and backing up a step. “But I didn’t do it for anyone. I did it for you.”
Tempting Hallie, coming December 2022!
