When I'm With You
"People move on, get lives. You have. Why can't I? Why is there always something holding me back?" I glare up at him, my heart pounding heavily in my chest. It's a surprise he can't hear my heartbeat. Tears begin to burn my eyes but I bite them back.
Winston stares back at me with soft eyes and my mind starts to slowly give into him. "I'm sorry, Cal." The words are almost a whisper but they set me into a frenzy of nerves and suddenly, I don't know what to say. His words hit me hard in the gut.
"Don't apologise, idiot." I nudge him slightly, before wrapping my arms around his torso. Warmth spreads through my body and in that moment, something changes.
I think I'm falling for Winston Walker.
Callery Monton: broken hearted but never wanting anyone to see her fears. She hides behind fake prentences and facades hoping no one will break her down.
Winston Walker: still suffering from an accident he can barely remember, he hides behind books and perfection that is only skin deep. Yet no one sees the boy he's hiding inside or the person he no longer wants to be.
What is in common for these two polar opposites? Love. The loss of it from an accident that shifted the world into a new perspective.
So when Callery finds the truth about Winston and the accident he's been desperate to hide, something changes.
For Callery everything shifts into focus. And for Winston, he looses the best thing he'd ever had.
Because when you find someone you love, you just know.
