Graham Russell and I weren’t made for one another.
I was driven by emotion; he was apathetic. I dreamed while he lived in nightmares. I cried when he had no tears to shed.
Despite his frozen heart and my readiness to run, we sometimes shared seconds. Seconds when our eyes locked and we saw each other’s secrets. Seconds when his lips tasted my fears, and I breathed in his pains. Seconds when we both imagined what it would be like to love one another.
Those seconds left us floating, but when reality knocked us sideways, gravity forced us to descend.
Graham Russell wasn’t a man who knew how to love, and I wasn’t a woman who knew how to either. Yet if I had the chance to fall again, I’d fall with him forever.
Even if we were destined to crash against solid ground.
We didn’t know how to act with one another after our first kiss. Our situation wasn’t the norm when it came to building a relationship. We did everything backward. I fell in love with a boy before our first kiss, and he fell for a girl who he wasn’t allowed to have. Our connection, our heartbeats, matched one another in our fairytale world, but in reality, society deemed us as an awful accident.
Maybe we were an accident—a mistake.
Maybe we were never supposed to cross each other’s paths.
Maybe he was only meant to be a lesson in life and not a permanent mark.
But still, the way he kissed me…
Our kiss was as if heaven and hell collided together, and each choice was right and wrong at the same exact time. We kissed as if we were making a mistake and the best decision all at once. His lips made me float higher, yet somehow descend. His breaths somehow made my heart beat faster as it came to a complete halt.
Our love was everything good and bad wrapped in one kiss.
A part of me knew I should’ve regretted it, but the way his lips warmed up the cold shadows of my soul…the way he left his mark on me…
I’d never regret finding him, holding him, even if we only had those few seconds as one.
He’d always be worth those tiny seconds we shared.
He’d always be worth that soul-connecting feeling we created when our lips touched.
He’d always be the one I spent my nights dreaming of being near.
He’d always be worth it to me.
Sometimes when your heart wanted a full-length novel, the world only gave you a novella, and sometimes when you wanted forever you only had those few seconds of now.
And all I could do, all anyone could ever do, was make each moment count.
After we went home that night, we didn’t talk about it at all. Not the following week, either. I focused on Talon. Graham worked on his novel. I believed both of us were waiting for the right time to come up for us to speak about it, but that was the tricky thing about timing: it was never right.
Sometimes you just had to leap and hope you didn’t fall.
Are you the glass is half empty person? How about the one that believes the glass if half full?
For Lucy, life was filled with amazement and wonder inspired by her free spirited mother. With three siblings, Lucy was the most like her mother. Inspiring her to always look towards the brightest side of life. Three sisters that are as different as night and day. Their longing to be either different or like their mother a forefront to the decisions that shaped their lives.
Lucy’s free spirit led her to strive to make her dream of owning a florist shop a reality. That love of beauty led her to a chance meeting with Graham. The many facets of Lucy’s happiness are a complete contrast to Graham’s grumpy and pessimistic nature. Two opposites that are thrown together by circumstance.
What started out as an act of kindness from Lucy transpires into a revelation about deep seeded issues from both of their pasts. Lucy’s tendency to be a ‘hippie weirdo’ slowly makes Graham question the routines that have been such a huge part of his life. In turn, Lucy must question what is acceptable to others in regards to the sacrifice of her own happiness.
Their story is a forbidden one that few will encounter. The result of that one meeting would have consequences that neither could have predicted. A journey of hope, understanding, forgiveness and most of all…..LOVE!!!
