the two sides of the story - One and Done (Two Outta Three, #2) by S. Briones Lim

There are two sides to every story and this is my version…
Silver spoon? Spoiled?
Definitely not how I would describe myself.

There are two sides to every story and this is my version…
Silver spoon? Spoiled?
Definitely not how I would describe myself.

After growing up in a dysfunctional home, my future was basically laid out for me—get stuck in Bethel Falls and watch the only girl I ever loved move on to greater things.

Of course, life can be one unpredictable S.O.B., and now that the tables have turned, I've found myself a successful job hundreds of miles away from her. 

So now that I have to move back, why am I so scared?

But hey, if I could survive my mother, an obnoxious new stepbrother, and a near death experience, then seeing Rocky again shouldn't be too horrible.

At least, I hope it won't…

EXCERPT

 It was in her eyes, the way her gaze lingered on me whenever she thought I looked away. I could feel her stare permeating my skin, bathing me in care and warmth.

I never looked away.

It was in her words. How even when she was busy cursing me out or joking around with me, there was a certain lullaby to her tone, almost as if by voice alone she could embrace my entire body.

I always listened.

Yeah, I knew she loved me, but you know what? I’d never tell her, nor would I ever let her know that I felt the same way. Why not? To put it bluntly, I didn’t want her to know.

Sure, it may seem simple. Guy likes girl, girl likes guy, they get together, end of story. Unfortunately, that’s not how it would work for me and Rocky. In fact, it would never work out. It was just never in the cards for us.
