You Said You Loved Me
◦•●◉✿They say young love never lasts, but not us; I would bet my life that ours lasts.✿◉●•◦
At eighteen, I walked away from the small beach town I had grown up in, for good.
My parents had just been brutally murdered, and it was my fault.
I was young, scared, and stupid, and it cost me the love of my life-Kyler Wiley.
Four years later, they found me; the people that murdered my parents found me and once again threatened that Kyler would end up with the same fate as my parents. But this time I’m not running away. I’m not that scared little high school girl any longer.
Back where I fell in love and planned a future.
A future with the boy who is now a police officer, just like my dad.
I never expected to run into him the same day I got back to town, but I did, walking the same beach where our dreams began and ended.
One look at him and all the old memories rush back. Waves of pain smash into my chest at the loss, and emptiness I feel.
I yearn for him to pull me into his arms and tell me everything will be all right.
I’m not the scared teenager, I was intimidated by the notes, the unknown. Desperate to escape this small town, determined to save him from harm.
But he’s learned to guard his heart, and trust won’t come easily.
How do I tell him I lied?
I never stopped loving him.
I just needed them to think I had.
I would do anything to keep him safe, even if it broke me, leaving a heart that refused to work.
