Beautiful Broken Rules(106)

When she finally pulled back slightly, seeing her eyes full of tears made my heart plummet to the floor. “No, no, no, baby, what’s wrong? I thought you’d be happy to see me,” I asked nervously.

“These are happy tears, Jax. I just can’t believe I’m finally back here with you. It’s been so long since I’ve talked to you… anything could have happened. I didn’t know if you would… be here,” she admitted, nervously.

When I realized that she actually thought that I would leave her while she was gone, I squeezed her in tighter. It’s hard for me to remember that she still has insecurity issues with people leaving. I’ll never forgive myself for the way I handled our relationship this past spring.

“Nothing could have kept me away from being here.”

I pulled her lips to mine and tried to kiss the life out of her. I would never get tired of these lips. I still couldn’t believe she was mine, or rather, I was hers. I whispered in her ear how much I loved her and had missed her. She eased my heartache by returning it all back to me. I couldn’t wait to tell her about the hot air balloon tickets I had in my back pocket. I knew she was going to be excited, even though it was technically my gift from winning our first bet.

“Take me home,” she whispered in my ear. Chills ran through my body at the possibility of having her all to myself again.

“Beautiful, I’ll take you anywhere.”
