[A little note:
shower thoughts lead me to interesting places.
I have been writing this on and off for days with in mild annoyance and frustration . It is also extremely long and I apologize. I wanted to try writing from both their perspectives instead of one. I think you can guess where
this is headed.]
[Summary: Drake can’t keep thinking about MC because he knows those thoughts can lead to dangerous places where she’s concerned. He doesn’t want to hurt his best friend and ultimately refuses to. MC can’t stop thinking about Drake, even though her mind tries to convince her otherwise. Neither of them wants to betray the prince’s trust, and neither of them are willing to until tonight. ]
It doesn’t happen the way they always say it should. Love at first sight; the overtly cliché idea that
someone can fall for another by simply meeting for the first time – silly
stories they teach little girls and little boys growing up. There is no
danger of that. There is no danger of falling in love for two people so
He’s just bitter, she thinks.
She’s in way over her head, he thinks.
They do not understand they have far more in common than either realizes; not until he opens up to her about his sister and not until she speaks of her own dysfunctional family. Their friendship is slow, and rocky at best. It doesn’t take much for a misstep to occur. For their feet to stumble and touch a begrudgingly sore spot until they search again for common ground. Soon, the frigid disdain they once had for each other begins to thaw.
