Something About You
There was something quite magnificent about him. He looked within me, even though he could not see me.
Savanah Newman is a high school exchange student who has left her less than perfect life in England to live with a wealthy family for a year. The only problem being the less than perfect boy next door with a head of chestnut hair, dark sunglasses and an even darker attitude.
"Shut up," he was standing now, "don't act like you know what it's like to lose everything, to constantly be surrounded by darkness, to know you will never see your family again."
"You think you're the only one who has lost something. You aren't the only person who feels pain, Nathan. How could you be so selfish?" I was standing too now.
He hung his head and murmured, "It's easy to only think of yourself when you are alone in the world."
"You aren't alone," I took a step closer and placed my hand on his chest, "you will always have me." As our lips touched, in that moment I was worried I was making a promise I couldn't keep.
