A Love You Can't Adopt
"Not everyone who leaves, stays gone," she held my cheeks as she wiped the tears that fell.
"I'll always be with you Conor, always," she gave me a sad smile as her own tears fell. Now it was my turn to wipe hers.
I pulled her into an embrace, cradling her with my dear life.
"I'll always be with you too, Riley," I laid a kiss on her forehead.
Conor has gone through so much ever since he was kid. With being adopted and constantly being from foster home to another. He's never found someone who's actually wanted him as a son, or even as a friend.
Conor has dealt with many kinds of things, loss, anger, depression, and even fear.
Although one thing he never thought he'd have to dealt was a new set of things.
Redemption, caring, kindness and even love.
Except who gave him these set of feelings that he never thought were possible.
Was it a friend? Adoptive family?
Or maybe it was the girl who decided to volunteer at the Lost Boy & Girls adoption center.
Who's know as the wonderful, Riley Flynn.
Is this the girl the one who will finally crack the code in Conor? Or will a major turn of events just make him lose his away even more than he anticipated?
