I sighed, leaning into his embrace. “I have never been this close to a guy before,” I said. “After what Kyle did to me, I’m actually kind of afraid to be here alone with you.”
I watched his expression morph from guarded to wounded. His face turned blank, his mouth pressed into a thin line and I felt his heartbeat hasten under my touch. I’d hurt him, and I didn’t mean to.
“You’re scared because you think I’ll hurt you like he did,” he said, matter-of-factly.
I shook my head. “No,” I said. “I’m afraid because there’s this feeling in my soul that knows you won’t. To be honest, Colin, it freaks me out in the most intense way, because I’m getting this feeling that I might fall for you, and hard.”
“I’ve already fallen for you, Nickayla,” he said. “Will you be my girlfriend?”
Without hesitation, without a question, I leapt. Head first, I leapt into the pool of happiness I knew was awaiting me with this boy. I had no fears, no reservations. I knew that if I let myself, I could love Colin. I knew that I could have it all: love, security, happiness, something that I had too long deprived myself of. I wanted all of it, and I wanted all of it with Colin Westwick.
“Yes,” I said. “Of course I will.”
