Chapter 6: RealizationShe pulls away from his chest, ultimately aware that she had been crying into James’s shirt for a while.
Her guards back up; he notices it as soon as she tenses in his arm.
They sit still in the middle of the hallway, Jane wrapped in his arms. His long-sleeve gray shirt marked with her tears.
Jane brushes the remaining tears off of her face and steals a glance at James. His sharp cheekbones, broad
If she could, Jane would lay in his arms all day.
And now she’s given the chance, but she knows she won’t do it.
It’s too hard bringing someone else into her life to only find out she can only offer him or her physical and emotional abuse.
She pulls away from him, feeling cold and heartless when he isn’t touching her anymore. “Thanks,” she whispers.

And before he can think, before he can ponder the absolutely horrible outcome from his bold decision, he can find only one way to make the pain leave.
James kisses her.
It surprises her. Her shield crumbles to bits as she melts into him. He deepens the kiss, only
letting out a suppressed groan when she twines her fingers through his hair. Their body’s fit together like they had before when he first noticed her. She leans into him, pressing against his body.
His heart almost cracks into two.
Her heart almost bursts out of her chest.

So instead of staying around to find out, she runs away from James.
Leaving James almost gasping from the kiss and almost crying when she ran away.
Because this time he was the one that needed to be held in the middle of the hallway with the tears staining her shirt.
