The past was proof that the universe had designs to keep them apart. But now, six years later, it seemed determined to push them together. Stella Huxley was used to going solo. She travelled and wrote about the world, normally ending up in less than savoury situations that she normally managed to get herself out of- just. She had found her dream job and her dream life due to the sacrifices she had made in her past. And now those decisions were determined to haunt her at her best friend's wedding, where Killian Beckett would also be in attendance. She had avoided the man for years since they had ended their relationship, or rather he had blocked and deleted her from his life. However, it seemed as if fate contrived to fling them together once again as they make the journey across the country to their friends' wedding. Killian Beckett thought he had put Stella Huxley from his life for good, but just one glimpse of her looking like she had been dragged along the back of a dog sled team (and smelling like one too) was enough to remind him of how he had felt with her. He knew they did not work, that she had walked out of his life for a plane ticket and a life of adventure. It would take all of his willpower to remember that and to forget what her lips tasted like against his- even as the universe continued to throw them together again and again.
