He took my hands and stared at me with his emerald eyes. “I promise I won’t ever put you through that again. I was an ass. I was selfish. I’ve changed. You are what I want.” He looked around my place. “This is what I want.”
God, I wanted to believe him, but I was so uncertain. I’d been down this road with him before and we didn’t have the best experience. He’d broken me so badly, but I guess I had no other choice but to let him fix me. “I can’t go through that again, Braiden.”
“Do you still love me?”
Like he needed to ask. “I never stopped.”
“I was so stupid. I love you. It took being without you to realize that. I want you, and only you, forever.”
My heart was begging me to believe him while my mind still had reservations. “Please stay true to your word.”
“I promise.” He wrapped his arms around my shoulders and pulled me close to him. I wanted to stay like that forever. He was my home. I felt safe even though I probably wasn’t. I wasn’t happy but I was certain that wouldn’t last. And I felt loved even though that most likely wasn’t true.
