For the Love of Sydney (Editing)
"‘Damn it to hell’, she said to herself when he answered the phone; his voice penetrating her entire body. She took a few seconds to speak because she could hardly think straight at the moment."
Sydney spent her whole life focused on anything but love. There was no reason for it, at least not at this point in her life when her career was just taking off, but when she met him her whole life turned upside down. Will he be able to turn her ideas on relationships around? Or will he turn out to be just like the others?
"She wouldn’t turn to face him and he couldn’t tell whether she was crying or shaking from anger. He’s never seen her like that and it’s not something he wanted to see again. She was supposed to be happy; it was his job to make her happy, not make her feel pain."
