Close As Strangers (Jessie J Fanfic)
Camille Woodall is a New York Times #1 Bestselling author. Her list of bestsellers include the titles ‘Almost Paradise’, ‘Waves’, ‘Maps’, ‘After The Storm’, ‘Gravity’ and ‘Don’t Tell the Demons’. The whole world is a sucker for her sweet words, and everyone is anticipating her new novel.
Even though her words sound like an experienced lover’s, Camille herself has never been in love. Not once has she kissed, or caressed, or wrapped her arms around someone in a romantic, loving way. Not once has she experienced the true struggles and pain of being hopelessly in love with someone. Not until she met the girl of whom she’s sure of is the love of her life. But what if the love of your life is a stranger?
"My hand carefully stroked her face. Her soft, rosy cheek laid beneath my warm palm. Her cheeks were colder than ever before, but it didn’t scare me away. My hand kept stroking her cheek as tears welled up in my eyes. She didn’t deserve this. She didn’t deserve the pain she was in. She laid still. Her pale skin seemed to shine in the early sunlight, her blue vessels clear under her skin. Her cerise lips were closed, and instead of a smile that would have been present three weeks ago, her lips were neutral. Her eyelids hid her diamond-like eyes away from me, like a treasure that was not mine to admire. She was empty. She was nothing. She was the one who once held my whole universe in her hands; now, she was nothing but a stranded comet."
