“I know for some reason you won’t believe me, but I’m completely serious about you, Mari,” Seth
began. “If my only way into your life at this point is as your friend, then that’s what I’ll be, but just know that what I really want is more than that. I’ve been searching for years for you.”
“You don’t even know me,” I retorted, trying my best to move the conversation to something else.
“I know all I need to know about you. You are the girl I’ve been searching for. Now I just need to
convince you that maybe, just maybe, I’m the guy for you.” Seth grinned like he was accepting the
challenge. “Just know that I’m not giving up on you.” And before I could reply, he leaned down and kissed my forehead before turning and strolling away, leaving me speechless before the open doorway.
I marched into my room and slammed the door. Seth Sangre was good. I could still feel the tingles
from where he had kissed me. Heck, I could still feel his hands around my waist as he caught me from
falling. He was such a puzzle to me now. He’d been nothing but a gentleman all night. In fact, he only
kissed me on the forehead when I was standing there shocked, even though he could have kissed me on
the lips. I probably wouldn’t have even pushed him away if he had tried. He was a riddle to me, filled
with secrets, yet when he said he would protect me, I knew he was telling the truth. Most players I’d
known in high school would never go that far for a girl, even just to impress them. Seth was turning out
to not be the person I thought he was, but even so, there was no way to be sure. If I said yes and went
out with him, and he turned out to just be the normal, player jerk, I’d be the one with a broken heart.
