"You've always told me that you wanted a special first kiss." He whispered, and my heart skipped a beat as I stared into his familiar eyes. How could this be the last time I ever saw him? His hands enclosed my cheeks, and he stroked his thumb on my skin as he drew closer.
"Samantha Jenna Holland," he whispered into my ear "That's my gift to you, your first kiss".
And that was it before she had lost her best friend. He was leaving to go and live on the other side of the world. His family wanted to erase the past and start over, and she was a major part of his past. At 16, her world came crumbling down. She'd lost Kyan forever.
But forever is too long, right?
Eight years later, she's still single. As a teenager, she used to obsess over all the romantic dramas that smeared the magazines and televisions shows. At 24, she became a realist and understood that all that sappy sh*t didn't just magically happen. She needed to be patient. She had her chance at love once, but he'd left her. Sometimes she still wondered what had happened to Kyan.
Now, she's work-oriented and ready to be the most successful woman in the world. Romance was no longer a priority, and she'd accepted that not everyone flies away on a unicorn with prince charming . And that fireworks don't happen for everyone. And that being single isn't necessarily bad. And if she was going to date someone, she wasn't going to waste her time on anything below perfection.
But then she met Noel Michaels, a handsome, smart and, did I mention, famous man who was so out of her league that she felt allured to him.
And after 8 years, she felt her heart skip a beat again.
