Forever and Always (Forever and Always #2)(10)
E.L. Todd

I rolled my eyes then stared straight ahead. He grabbed my hand and held it within his own, but I didn’t pull it away. Sean started kissing my neck and I felt my anger ebb away as his lips grazed over my skin. “I love you.”

“I love you too,” I whispered. I was still mad at him, but I loved hearing him tell me that.

When we got back to the apartment, Ryan could tell that I was mad just by looking at me.

“You guys are fighting already?” he asked incredulously.

“No,” I said as I sat on the couch and crossed my arms over my chest.

“I’ve known you your whole life, Scar. I know when you are pissed about something. I suggest you let it go and cut Sean some slack.”

“Shut up, Ryan,” I snapped.

“I knew I was right.” He smiled.

“She’s mad that I won’t have sex with her,” Sean said.

I slapped Sean on the arm. “I can’t believe you told him that.”

“Well, now you know how ridiculous you sound.” He laughed. “I know you tell your brother everything, so what’s the big deal?”

“Yes,” I snapped. “I tell him everything because he’s my brother. You had no right to tell him that.”

“Too late,” Sean said.

Ryan laughed. “You are getting mad at your boyfriend for respecting you? Wow, what an asshole,” he said sarcastically.

“This doesn’t concern you, Ryan,” I said.

“Whatever,” he said. “You’re just going to tell me about it anyway.”

I sighed and looked away from the two men. I didn’t have any reason to be mad at Ryan, but I was. And I was furious with Sean. Ryan walked down the hall and went into his room to get ready for his evening out. Sean placed his hand on my thigh.

“I’m sorry,” he whispered. “You are just making this really difficult for me. You are absolutely gorgeous and sexy, and you have no idea how much I want to be with you, but more importantly, I love you and I want to make sure that I’m not hurting you.”

His words softened my anger. I turned towards him and met his gaze. “I’ve moved on from what happened, Sean. I forgive you, so let’s forget about it and be happy together. I trust you and know you will never hurt me again. It was a huge misunderstanding anyway. And I won’t let you hurt me again. Last time I thought I couldn’t go on, but I’ll never allow myself to feel that way again. So please, stop babying me.”

Sean sighed. “I’ll think about it,” he said.

I rolled my eyes. I was done talking about it. “What do you want for dinner?”

Sean thought for a moment. “Chinese food sounds good. Or even pizza.”

“Let’s do pizza,” I said. “We have to find a movie to watch.”

“There’s probably something on television,” he said. “That way we don’t have to go out again.”


Ryan came back into the living room and grabbed his keys. “I’m leaving,” he said as he walked to the door. “It’s nice having Sean here so I can go out.”

“I never asked you to stay and babysit me,” I snapped.

Ryan shrugged. “I’ll see you later.” He shut the door behind him and was gone.

I rose from the couch and opened up the phone book, looking for a pizza parlor close by. Sean came up behind me and ran his fingers down my back. “Have you called Janice?”

“No.” I sighed. “I’ll call her when you leave.”

“Okay,” he said. “I know she’ll appreciate it.”

“I know.”

He kissed me on the cheek then stepped away. “What kind are you going to order?” he asked.


“Are you going to ask them to drop it on the ground before they bring it over?” He smiled.

I picked up the phone and dialed. “You’re lucky that I love you.”

“The luckiest guy in the world.”

The phone started to ring and they finally answered. I placed our order and hung up. Sean pulled out twenty dollars and left it on the table. “They can keep the change.”

“I got it,” I said. “You paid for drinks the other night.”

“Don’t worry about it,” he said quickly. “You can get the next one.”

His quick refusal made me suspicious. I knew he had been conversing with Ryan, and I wondered if my brother had told him about my situation. I wanted to ask him without giving the information away just in case Ryan hadn’t told him.
