Everyone has secrets. But none had one as big as Reid Parker. And when he meets River, he finds it hard to keep that from her. But what he doesn't know is that the longer he holds off telling her and continues to be with her, the more danger she is put in.
"River I want you. I want to be in your life and I want you in mine. Never in my life have I met someone like you. Never have I felt so strongly for someone as I do for you. You're beautiful. And I swear on my life that if you'll be mine, I'll protect you and love you forever," he said to me. I was barely breathing. His voice was so low and sexy that I just wanted to melt. It felt as if he meant every word. He made me feel like he really needed me. I inhaled slowly.
"River I promise you," he said passionately, "I promise you! I promise you I will never hurt you, I will never leave you!" He was so close to my face now, just inches away from my lips.
"I...I..." I stuttered. I wet my lips and bit my lip, "Just tell me one thing, Reid."
"Anything River. Anything you want and you'll get it, I swear," he said. Mm. His breath was warm on my cheek.
"What are you hiding from me?" I said simply.
