I'm tired of trying to get through his stubborn head. ” “Don't be sorry, Tal. ” Mitch took her hands and pulled her to her feet. “I don't want to talk about him anymore. ” He kissed her, his tongue flicking against hers.

She teetered on the edge of tears a lot lately, but she had mastered how to save them for when she was alone. “I am sorry that I hurt you. I don't know about you, but I don't like myself much these days. ” He drained his cup and stood. Talley's heart sank into the pit of her stomach. ” He hesitated, then shook his head. ” She went into his arms again and they kissed, long and slow and sweet.

They were now twenty-three, their history long and varied, sometimes sweet and sometimes bitter. Now, at this particular time in their lives, it was turning sour—only Mitch didn't know it and Talley couldn't find the words to tell him. ” Mitch asked when he'd ended the kiss that was sweet and warm and held so much promise.
