“Laith.” His name falls from my lips in a soft whisper. Never in my life did I ever picture being with someone, not like this. “I don’t deserve you.”
“That’s bullshit and you know it. Now, tell me what you keep thinking. Tell me what you’ve said under your breath. Tell me the thoughts I’ve heard slip from your lips.”
“I love you. I love you so fucking much and it’s scaring the shit out of me. I don’t know what to do, what to say, or how to breathe. I’m lost and I feel weak, but I’m not those things. I’m not weak. I don’t need people to save me, I take care of myself, and I don’t how to do any of this.” Tears fall from my eyes, sliding down my cheeks, and land on the sheets beneath my head.
“You’re far from weak. You’re fucking incredible, and I’m lost in you.” His lips collide with mine, all the while my heart slams in my chest as if it might explode.
