Emerson Smith. Noah Cooper.
"Do you know the thing about roses, Noah?" she asked him with blank eyes... and somehow it didn't feel right. Her eyes were never like stone. They always held some sort of emotion, until now. And it scared him. She waited for him to reply, and he did. He shook his head no. And she smiled a broken smile. "Do you want me to tell you?" she asked again with a tone that made him regret ever upsetting this girl. And he knew that whatever she was going to say will not be something he wanted to hear, and yet he found himself nodding. "Well, to start off, they're beautiful. They know how to make you happy and they have the most appealing scent. But we get so blinded by they're their good qualities that you forget about the thorns... till they prick you." She paused to breath. "That's what happened to us, Noah. We were so blinded by our little perfect bubble that we forgot how the real world works." And he was right. This was not something he wanted to hear.
