Cherished: I had always dreamed of falling in love. I was ready and eager to find my happily ever after, but there was just one problem. The man I so desperately wanted to fall for was not available. He was taken—spoken for. He wasn’t married, but he had been with someone for a long time. It didn’t help matters that she happened to be my friend.
Some would say that’s how it works, that I really only wanted him because I couldn’t have him. That couldn’t be farther from the truth. I had fallen for this man years ago, and he had won my heart for so many different reasons. The fact that he was off-the-market had nothing to do with my feelings for him.
Did I mention that he was one of the Blair brothers? This made him even more unobtainable. Everyone in Astoria knew and loved the Blair brothers. There were four of them, and they were handsome, kind, driven, and successful. Any of them would have been a great catch. Too bad my heart already belonged to the one I couldn’t have.
This is the story of how we finally fell in love.
“We were getting close to our gate when Haley dug her phone out of her pocket. She pushed buttons as we walked, and she glanced over and smiled at me.
“Jacob,” she whispered (even though I figured that was who she was calling).
I listened to her one-sided conversation as we walked.
“We’re in Los Angeles. You’ll never believe what Charlie just bought me at the airport.”
(She paused while he spoke on the other end. I couldn’t hear a thing.)
“No. A purse. A Coach purse with fringe. It’s not a knock off, either. You should see it. It came straight from the Coach store.”
(She paused again, glancing at me with a smirk while he spoke again.)
“Right here in the airport. It was on clearance. She got it for me for hooking her up with Aunt Lydia as a client.”
