Somewhere in between playing in the sandbox and starting high school, Harper Monroe fell in love with her best friend. Seth Ryerson was the boy who lived next door. He was the boy who dared to give her her first kiss. He was the boy she cried over when her mother decided to uproot her from her hometown. He’s also the boy with a secret.
He nodded. “Did you think you were the only one that wanted that dare?”
I scrunched up my face as I made my admission. “About that…The dare wasn’t really Gabby’s idea.”
“Oh yeah?” he asked, feigning surprise.
“Yeah. It was probably pretty obvious, huh?”
He shrugged but he was smiling. “That night, I just kept wishing that I’d kissed you sooner. Because I knew in the morning you were leaving. I was sure I’d never get the chance to kiss you again. But here you are.”
“Here I am,” I echoed.
