"Lucas you have no idea what you're trying to get into." Her face was so serious and more than that she spoke with so much passion... passion for me. And that made my heart soar. She actually cared. "You can't like me."
"Too late." I whisper while taking a step closer to her, not at all enjoying the space between us. I hate those words 'you can't like me'. I release a small smile, as I slowly stalk around her. "I can like whoever I want." I know she likes it when I get demanding, "And I like you." My hands snake around her waist to tug her impossibly closer, our bodies are pressed together. I hear the hitch in her breath causing me to inwardly smirk.
"You wouldn't if you knew everything. I'm not safe." She whispers while her fingertips trail down my shirt covered abdomen.
"I don't care." My heart begins to race from the close proximity. Like it has done since the first day I met her. I give it 30 seconds before I am kissing her senseless.
She shakes her head, almost admonishing herself for even trying to think of us together. "I'm not good for you."
"Yes you are." My hands grip her thighs to lift her off the ground, and seconds later I feel her lips crash onto mine. These damn butterflies and this feeling, I've never felt this way before. Yeah, we are so different, but I couldn't care less. She's a fighter and I am what she refers to as a 'goody goody'. She's aggressive and I'm passive. I'm submissive, a good portion of the time and she takes control, she's never afraid and I am afraid of one thing.
Join Riley and Lucas on an epic adventure of love, laughter and uphill battles. When things seem damn near impossible, will they keep fighting to keep what they have alive? Both physically and metaphorically. Or will they Tap Out?
