❝ “I’ve never done anything like that with anyone before!”
“Maybe you’ve never been brave enough.” His eyes made my heart stop, just as they pierced into mine, leaving a subtle subtext for me to hear. Maybe no one made you feel brave before.
But I’m here now, he told me with silent whispers, his hands on mine, his eyes on the street ahead as we walked slowly, endlessly. I’m here, and we’ll be brave together. ❞
Something most people didn’t know about Sama was the fact that she had absolutely nothing special about her. Sure, she enjoyed her time with her family and thought the world of Bollywood music from the 70’s, but did that make her any different from the girls that passed her by on the street? Not really... at least, not until she fell for the rather charming Nathaniel.
Falling for the boy with a voice that could make her burn and shiver all at once should’ve been a clichéd relationship from the start, but it wasn’t. Every word he spoke felt real, and every promise he made was special. Whether or not he knew, he’d won her over no matter how she tried to resist, and resist she did.
Maybe that was what made her stand out for the go-with-the-flow Nathaniel. In his eyes, she was more than the everyday fan-girl. Sure she made bubbly eyes at him and enjoyed his company just like all the others, but it was more than that. Sometimes, she was the most gullible person he knew. That sometimes, with all the chaos and pandemonium, she held the balance between his brutally imbalanced world and him.
A difficult love with a story like no other will bring these two to believe that sometimes some things happened for a reason while other times, you have to fight for those details that matter.
