‘There was a fieriness in his eyes that made me want to back down. But so far, this had been a night of not being afraid. Of taking chances. So I was just going to come out and say it. Even if it meant he stormed off on me now and never wanted to speak to me again.’
When Jess met Ollie, her parents had just split and her only real purpose in life seemed to be being the wing-girl for her best friend, Tina. She wasn’t looking for a boyfriend, or even a boy-friend, or even someone to talk to. She definitely wasn’t looking for a boy with personal issues that could get them killed.
But sometimes it’s the things you aren’t looking for that are the ones that will stay with you for the rest of your life.
