*Author's Note - This is actually a continuation to the first chapter. I just wrote it a little later than the first little part.
Isaac pressed his lips to mine, and I was floating. This kiss was nothing like we had shared before. This was full of promises, apologies and guilt. Just as his arms found their way to my waist, I pulled away gasping. My mind was muddled, and I was suddenly sobbing.
“Hush, Faye. What’s wrong?” Isaac murmured sweetly into my hair while he comfortingly wrapped his arms around me, pulling my face into his chest. One hand found its way to my hair and stroked it lovingly. He whispered words of love to me until it was all I could hear.
Eventually, I ran out of tears. I looked up at Isaac and found him staring at me. I furrowed my eyebrows and he laughed.
“What’s so funny?” I demanded, watching a smile toying with Isaac’s lips.
He gave into the smile, and grinned at me. “I thought you would have changed. I never would have guessed that I would leave you and you would stay exactly the same.” He pushed back a strand of hair that had blown into my face. His hand lingered on my cheek.
I made the mistake of looking into his eyes and felt myself drowning in them again. I realized that I wanted him – more than I ever had. I slowly leaned in, inhaling his musky scent, never taking my eyes off his.
A look of horror crossed Isaac’s face making me snap out of my trance and jerk away from him.
His face was a mask of hate. I stared at him wide-eyed and open mouthed. “Isaac?” I wanted to reach my hand out to stroke his face – just the way I did whenever he was angry, but I didn’t.
When he spoke, it came out more as a growl.
“Faye. I can’t… WE can’t. Nothing can ever be as it was. I’ve changed.”
Before I could open my mouth to say anything, Isaac turned on his heel and fled.
Tears started to blur my vision as I stumbled after Isaac. I wasn’t thinking clearly anymore. How could he leave me again? What did he mean nothing can ever be as it was? How has he changed?
