Our lips met by his design in a kiss thick with promise and quiet worship. It was a tasting, a savoring of a thing we couldn’t keep. I wanted to. I wanted to keep him, whatever that meant. Maybe it was just waiting—waiting I could do. But would he? We had studiously ignored that discussion since the first night we were together, and now we were in too deep to have that conversation without someone getting hurt. And I was pretty sure that someone would be me.
It was easier to pretend that everything was fine, just fine. It’d hurt later—there was no doubt about that. But maybe he’d come back and look me up. Maybe we could pick up where we’d left off. Or maybe it would be so much time that I would have moved on. Maybe he would. If there were no rules, no boundaries, it would all be left to fate. Maybe if I wished on the first star I saw tonight, he’d come back to me.
But that was the most dangerous thought of all.
Because all I could count on was this, right now.
So I’d have to make the most of it.

Staci has been a lot of things up to this point in her life — a graphic designer, an entrepreneur, a seamstress, a clothing and handbag designer, a waitress. Can’t forget that. She’s also been a mom, with three little girls who are sure to grow up to break a number of hearts. She’s been a wife, though she’s certainly not the cleanest, or the best cook. She’s also super, duper fun at a party, especially if she’s been drinking whiskey. When she’s not writing, she’s reading, sleeping, gaming, or designing graphics.
