One thing leads to another...
Chris sees a beautiful girl walk into a restaurant and can't imagine allowing her to walk away.
Kateline was just hanging out with her friends when a stranger approaches her.
Now, four years later, they are stronger than ever together.
But there is one thing weighing on Chris, and he's constantly fighting with the voice in his head encouraging him to tell her. He knows he needs to, especially after all this time, but can never find the words.
When Chris takes Kateline on a surprise romantic getaway for Valentine's Day, whispers about a huge creature appearing in the woods is suddenly the town's gossip. At first Kateline ignores those comments, knowing there's nothing to worry about with her boyfriend by her side, until one night she wakes up and finds her partner gone.
“Bite me,” I growl, peering up at her through my eyelashes.
“Well, in that case, come here!” she sings, moving to stand up from her chair.
My mouth drops open a little bit before I snap it closed. “No, Melissa!” I squeak, bracing myself to push away from the table. “Don’t!”
She was just rising from her chair when I said that. She studies me intently for several long moments before she sits back down. “You’re such a tease.”
I should have known that was coming, but I didn’t. I never know what Melissa will do. She’s usually not like that in public, but, then again, she’s also just being her weird self. But I never thought she’d actually act like she was going to come bite me. Especially in a restaurant full of people.
Or was she really going to bite me?
I shudder at that thought, sighing. “You’re crazy.”
