What could make things worse for me?
Weslee freakin’ Jackson.
The worst of the worst.
The one I’m told by EVERYONE to stay away from.
Which should be easy, right?
He’s everywhere I go.
Stalking me? Maybe.
Dark brooding eyes trying to devour me? All the time.
There’s just one little thing…
Wes’s eyes aren’t the only ones on me.
And I think I’ve started a war.
I didn’t ask to be put in this position as I find myself gravitating toward Wes.
He says he’ll protect me from Hidden Creek High.
But who’s going to protect me from him?
“My right hand started to shake and I touched my bag, knowing I had everything needed to calm my nerves.
“The view is worth everything else,” Julia said.
She stepped next to me.
“It’s fine,” I said.
“It’s not. You’re used to a lot more, Aira.”
“This is better than nothing,” I said. “Better than ashes.”
Julia touched my back. “You can always-”
I turned and walked away from the window.
Okay, fine, Julia and I had a moment in her car before. We laughed and bonded or whatever, but that didn’t mean we were suddenly best friends. I appreciated what she was doing for me but I was going through my own shit too.
“Your bedroom is back here,” Julia called out.
I froze in place. “Right.”
“So here’s what I’m going to do now,” Julia said. “I’m going to run to the store. Get some food and supplies for us. It’ll give you a chance to settle and unpack. Maybe you’ll want to go for a walk on the beach. Take in the air. Really think about things for a minute.”
I nodded. “Okay. Fine.”
