Description : Sultry
Mara

Watching my brother leave with his girl makes me want to pack my bags and follow him—anything other than staying here with him. I’ve been in love with him for as long as I can remember. Yeah, I had a schoolgirl crush on him, but my feelings have grown into something more—into love. My heart breaks every time he says something that I don’t want to hear. Like he doesn’t want me here, well, that is something I know already without him shouting it at me. I mean he’s been the most un-hospitable person ever.

He’d clenched his jaw, opened the door wider so I could enter and then asked “What have you done now, Mara?” because it was me. I’d needed a hug and I’d needed someone to listen to me, but he wasn’t willing to do either.

Ever since I turned sixteen he’s kept his distance and always stays well out of my way when hees home with the guys and visits with Reece. It hurts. It hurts a lot.

Out of the three musketeers, Donovan is the most laid back, but not with me. With me, he acts like I have the plague or something.

Since the door shut behind my brother, Donovan’s been standing across the room alternatively glaring at me and looking out of the window.

My bedroom is calling because all I want to do is lock myself away and cry. He’s never going to look at me the way I want him to. I can’t stay here anymore. I’ve only been here a few days, but I can’t stay here and watch him be with someone else. It’ll hurt too much. And he’s made it clear that he doesn’t want me and never will.

A tear escapes as I quickly get to my feet and make for my room.
