He craves more than her body.
I have a million reasons for staying away from Cindy Meier. Let's start with the top three.
One, she's hot and knows it. She lives in a fantasy world where everyone bows to her wishes and wants.
Two, she's the sister of my brother's fiancé. Enough said. We have to organize our sibling's wedding party weekend. Nothing but planning will happen between us, no matter how much her seductive glances curl around my desires.
Three, I've finally crawled out of the hell I created. I'm not about to risk returning to it for a pretty smile and a smart mouth.
No matter how sexy those lips, or how much she makes me laugh.
See, I used to be just like her. All about the good times, chasing my next party, diving into any and all pleasures.
I'd realized too late I couldn't afford the cost. The price was too high, and those closest to me ended up paying my tab.
I won't make that mistake again. So, I'm going to ignore her smile that lights me up. Turn from her exuberant laughter that brightens the dead corners of my soul. We'll do our part for our sibling's wedding then go our separate ways.
In opposite directions, because that's what we will always be: opposites.
