We used to be friends. He used to laugh with me. Smile at me. Talk to me. One day we were fine, and the next it was like I didn’t exist to him. I was hurt and confused as to what I’d done. I wanted to fix it, but couldn’t, no matter how hard I tried.
I wasn’t the type of person to dwell on things and let them get me down. I was pretty happy with the way my life had turned out so far. I was living on the beach, surfing every morning, and I had a great circle of friends. So It shouldn’t have mattered if Ky wanted to turn his back on me.
I tried to let go, but it seemed like the universe was intent on pushing us together. I only hoped that I could crack his armor and that he would let me in one day.
I’d learned that in life one moment can force a change on you. One scene. One glimpse at a person’s true self. One flash of surprise. It can wake you up. Make you change your course. Play tricks on your mind.
Chris. There were so many things about him that were lovable. He was sweet, kind, caring, and funny. He was laid-back but at the same time, overly thoughtful. He was also the thing that scrambled my brain and had me turned upside down and backward.
I wanted to push him away- and I tried. But then another one of those moments came crashing into my life. Leaving me no choice but to be close to the man I had spent weeks doing my best to get out of my head.
