He gave them a choice.
She took it.
He made her promise two years.
She should have known there was a catch.
“You look like a bum. You haven’t worn make-up in days. That’s not like you! You’ve been wearing the most atrocious clothes that God only knows where you got. So spill. What’s wrong?” Courtney asked, narrowing her eyes.
Amara shut hers and breathed deeply before looking at Courtney again. “I saw Colin.”
Courtney’s mouth dropped. Amara lifted an eyebrow and nodded.
“What?” Courtney asked, shocked.
Amara began to walk again and Courtney trotted to catch up.
“In New Orleans. He was there with his fiancée,” Amara said, not looking at Courtney. She heard her gasp loudly.
“I wish I was.”
“Oh my God. I’m so sorry, Mara. Why didn’t you tell me?” Courtney grabbed Amara’s arm and slipped her hand into Amara’s, squeezing it once their fingers were threaded together.
Amara shrugged nonchalantly, even though every time she closed her eyes, the only thing she saw was Colin hovering over her. She could still smell him, taste his tongue on hers, and feel his hands on her.
“Amara?” Courtney said, snapping her out of it.
“Yeah. Sorry. I mean, it is what it is.” She shrugged.
Courtney stopped and pulled on Amara’s hand to face her. “Hey,” she whispered, tucking strands of hair behind Amara’s ear. “Tell me what happened.”
Amara met Courtney’s warm, sky-colored gaze and shook her head. “I saw them together… then he saw me and kissed me and he went to my hotel and we…” she took a breath. “It doesn’t matter. He walked out on me, I made him, and it’s over. For real this time. Completely over.”
