Get Ready to Run
Two years, countless moves, and one goal: don't get found. That's been the objective for Sawyer and her little sister for some time now. When life drags her into an unexpected direction, she's placed directly into the life of the one person who has done what she never thought to be possible: break down the walls she worked so hard to build up.
As Tyler and Sawyer become closer, Sawyer worries that letting him into her already hectic life will only put him in danger. What she doesn't realize is that Tyler is linked to exactly what she's been running from for the past two years. Conflicted, she's left with the unsettling decision of running again to protect herself or stay and face the inevitable.
I was exhausted from driving and all I wanted was to go to sleep before he could start asking questions. I didn't want to go into detail about why an underage teenager and her kid sister were migrating from San Francisco to Oregon at three in the morning. I knew the interrogation was inevitable but I was hoping to put it off till tomorrow.
He flicked on the lights, motioning with his head to where I'd be sleeping for the night.
After eyeing the room I turned to him gazing at him far longer than I should have, noticing his impressive stature and the intoxicating emerald green color his eyes held.
"What? Like what you see or something?" he said, more to embarrass me than to sound cocky.
I shook my head, keeping my expression neutral but knowing very well my blush was giving me away,"I've seen better." I shot back, hiding a smirk.
He scoffed, surprised by my response, or maybe that I had given him one at all, "Right." He responded. "I'm Tyler by the way, Tyler Evans".
