Nathan's POV:

We were sitting together in the library. The fireplace was lit and the night sky shone through the large, two story windows, on either side of it. We were alone, except for Ms. Newman, the librarian.

"Katie," I said. My voice was all gross and gravelly, like I'm on the verge of tears...I was. I was barely able to pull myself together enough to meet her here, but I had to. I couldn't leave without seeing her.

She turned to face me and I lost it. Her blue eyes held tears. Her perfect face featured small red blotches... I did this. I shouldn't have fallen for her when I knew that I would have to go, and I shouldn't have let her fall for me.  She sucked in a shaky breath,"This isn't the end."

I felt my eyes well up. I could not see how this wasn't the end,"I'm sorry Katie."

She leaned forward and placed her soft hand on the side of my face. Her eyes looked deeply into mine making my heart race,"No it's not Nathan." She looked down at my mouth and I leaned in to help give her confirmation that I too wanted the kiss. I knew it was only going to make things worse, but as she brought her lips to mine, a wave of happiness enveloped me. Her hands travelled up to my hair and I could feel her tears as she deepened the kiss.

After a few moments she pulled away and rested her forehead on my chest. At that moment I realized all of the things I was about to loose. I couldn't hold back the tears as they rolled down my face. I hated my family. I hated the money. I hated that I had to break the heart of the most amazing woman I had ever met all because my family needed money.

She squeezed my shoulders, gently,  as she pulled away. Then she looked at me,"It will be okay. What's meant to be will always be Nathan," Her fingers pressed against my tears, wiping them away.

I looked down at my phone which was buzzing. My driver was waiting outside.

"Before you go I have to tell you something." She said. I could hear the nervousness in her voice as she continued. "These last few months have completely changed my life. I will never forget you Nathan." Her glistening blue eyes met mine and in that moment I could feel the connection between us. It pulsed through my veins and drew me to her from the start... How could I give up on this. I just had to fight for us. In that moment I didn't care anymore about the wealth or my name, because she means so much more to me than any of that. And then I heard her voice, just above a whisper say, "I love you."
