Delilah Sage was my comfort within all the pain.
Offering open arms when I needed an escape.
The only one trusted to be there for me.
But our dreams were doomed from the start.
And I left her clinging to false hope.
Regret has plagued me for years.
The memories of Delilah refuse to fade.
Each second of every day, I want to claim her as mine.
But I wonât ruin her life.
And sheâs better off without me.
When a job lands me in town, I plan to keep my distance.
My scars are mine alone.
Dredging up the past will only cause deeper damage.
But Delilah has always been my weakness.
And resisting her isnât an option.
After all, thereâs far too much for us to miss.

âWhy are you being like this?â I ask softly.
His voice is even more flat when he says, âNot sure what you mean. This is me.â
âYouâre acting so detached and strange. This isnât like you.â
âWell, you donât know me anymore.â
That response brings fury and betrayal roaring to the surface again. âAnd whose fault is that, Zeke?â I grab a nearby mug with the intention of throwing it at his head. Heâs giving me worse mood swings than Aunt Flo.
âWe both know the answer. Letâs not play guessing games.â
âYouâre ridiculous. I donât understand you at all,â I say.
âA lot happens in five years. Youâre not the only one whoâs changed.â He gestures around the store.
âWhat is that supposed to mean? Are you upset about my career choice?â
âNah, that isnât it.â
âWhat then? Letâs stop dancing around. You came here for a reason,â I point out.
A flush races up his neck, painting the stubbled skin an angry red. âAll of this is proof you never needed me. Not like I fucking depend on you.â
