Still Waters ( #Wattys2016 )
Natasha has been in love with Collin since elementary school. But when Collin's random bursts of anger turn into even more frequent bouts of violence, Natasha wonders more and more who she's really dealing with.
Natasha's best friend Kenney has always known EXACTLY who Collin is, and has never held his tongue about it. As her friend, Kenney has never turned his back on her, and has tried repeatedly to help her get out of her current situation. There's only one problem. Two, actually...
Kenney is, has, and will always be completely and totally in love with Natasha. And Collin knows it.
Natasha, of course, is completely and totally in love with Collin. So in love that she's willing to put up with anything just to keep him close.
And the closer Natasha gets to Collin, the more he hurts her. The more Collin hurts her, the harder it is for Kenney to maintain his own self-control and not step in to get rid of Collin for her.
Will Kenney get through to Natasha in time to save her life, without risking his own?
Will Natasha finally see Collin for the abuser that he is? Will she ever realize that Kenney's love for her is so much more than just a friend thing?
Will Natasha finally recognize the fact that every heart is a deep, dark ocean, and that what lies beneath is not always only what can be seen on the surface? Will she accept the fact that still waters do run deep, and that some waters are safe to jump into head first...
While other waters should never be tested?
