May 10th-Only 3 days to release day! - Marliss Melton

May 10th–Only 3 days to release day!

“I don’t want twenty minutes, Emma. I want forever.”

His assertion struck her dumb. All she could do was stare up at him.

“No answer?” he prompted with a firming of his mouth.

“Why would you even bring that up?” she asked, feeling strangely betrayed, and even to her own ears, she sounded stricken. “Didn’t you hear a word I told you yesterday? What we’re feeling isn’t going to last. It’s only temporary!”

“Are you sure you’re not trying to convince yourself?”

“No!” she railed. “I’m trying to tell you what I know to be true.”

His face hardened. “So what are we doing here? All you want from me is a short-term fling, right?” he concluded.

His accusation flooded her with shame. But she’d been alone a long time. Who was he to judge her? “Well, why not?” she asked on a note of desperation.

His answering smile failed to reach his eyes. “I’m sorry, Emma,” he said in a low voice, “but I don’t do temporary.”
