“You should have let me die.” She felt his grip on her waist tighten. He was angry, she could tell. He tended to show his feelings more than he wanted to admit.
“Let you die?” He had raised his voice. Charlotte didn’t flinch as she watched him. She didn’t know there was any room between the two, but she was proved wrong as he pulled her even closer to him. She could practically feel the beating of his heart. Or…was that hers? “How the hell was I suppose to let you die when every time I close my eyes I think of you? This wasn’t my intention. I didn’t want to fall in love with you. But, that’s your fault for being everything I didn’t know I wanted.”
Charlotte widened her eyes in shock. Had he just…he did. He dropped the L bomb. He loved her. More than that. He wanted her. She had never felt wanted in her entire life, not even by the family she so adored. She didn’t know what to say, and Jeff looked like he was done talking. He slammed his lips onto hers in a passionate rage. “How dare she,” He thought. “Make me fall in love with her and then want to die.” To hell with that, he’d never lose someone he cared about again. Even if she ended up not returning his feelings.
When he pulled away, he heard her small whimper. “Jeff…”
“Hmm?” He mumbled, forehead against hers. “What’s the matter?”
“I didn’t know that humans could kiss that well.”
“Seriously?” He rolled his eyes. “I give you all of my pent up emotions and that’s what you say?”
A smile rose on her lips, and it made his heart jump. He had kissed her, and she smiled. He hadn’t felt this giddy in a long time. “You said,” She began. “That you needed me to throw it in your face that you’re human every five minutes.”
“Idiot,” He whispered, planting another kiss on her lips. “You’re so aggravating.”
