CoverArt by: @romance_bxtch (Mild sensual story) Best friends...opposite attract...... ~imagine everything you ever had in your hands that you loved was ripped away before you ever had a chance to call it yours forever... My name is Nicolette Baxter, I have been bounced from foster home to foster home since the fire that took my family, and I was only 6. Now I live alone at the age of 21. I joined the local church in my town Spartanburg in North Carolina, which I was a member since I left my foster parents Josh and Amber Rogers when I turned 18. I met lots of people but one person particular was there to pick me up and make me feel important, that life mattered and his name was Carlos White only there was one problem I was in love with him and have been since the moment he uttered my name from his mouth and he was a werewolf and had a mate...... I rolled my eyes and Carlos smiled leaning his head to the side glaring at me. "Niki, we need to talk. It's really important!" he said pulling me away from the girls. I trailed in behind him and my heels scraped the ground as we made our way inside the church in one of the children church rooms. "This is so important Niki!" He kept saying shaking his head. "What's wrong?" I pursed my lips and he gazed into my eyes and sat there. My eyes were taken into his beautiful green ones and he searched my face and ran his hand down my cheek. "I....I don't know how to tell you this Nick but....I think I'm in love, but she doesn't love me back...." I gulped down the nervous ball I had in my throat and he pulled me in his arms for a hug. He pulled back and tears were in his eyes. "Carlos..I don't know what to tell you other than...I feel the same way too."
