~ Excerpt ~
Rubbing my eyes, I sat up and smiled when I saw all of the gorgeous flowers all over. Walker was so sweet, and this gesture made flutters of butterflies crash around in my stomach. I yawned and stretched as Cali banged on the door again, even louder this time. Getting up and stumbling around the flowers, trying not to knock any of them over, I croaked out, “Hold on, Cal. Jeez, I’m coming.”
Opening the door, squinting from the daylight, I was able to mutter, “Hey Cal, do you know what freaking time it is?”
Cali shoved past me, striding into my living room. “Yeah and look what I got.” In her hand was a pair of tickets with blurry words on them.
“Apparently my eyes aren’t awake yet.” I rubbed my face and tried to register what was going on.
Before she could tell me what was written on the pieces of paper she was holding, her eyes widened. “What the hell happened in here?” Her smile turned devilish with her next thought. “Please tell me Walker didn’t propose!” She popped her hip out and gave me a stern look of ‘you better not be engaged already bitch!’
“Fuck no! Gosh Cali, really? That’s where your mind darts to?” I might have already been in a relationship with someone, but my heart was still not healed. How could I even think about getting married again, or ever?
I rubbed my eyes again, smiling wide as I thought about Walker’s romantic gesture. “Walker and I had a little fight yesterday, so this was his apology”.
Cali smiled and shrugged. “Guess you’ll have to fight with him more often. If you get flowers like this, the make-up sex must be freaking incredible!”
