Forever and Always (Forever and Always #2)(9)
E.L. Todd

Sean kissed my lips then pulled away. “I think I love you more.”

Ryan shook his head. “Poor guy,” he said. “Has no idea what he’s getting himself into.”

Sean laughed. “No, but I’m excited to find out.” He kissed my forehead then finished his shake. “Well, it was pretty good. You were right about that.” Sean grabbed my milkshake and drank out of it before I could stop him. “I guess this one is mine, too.”

I stared at the straw for a moment before I brought it to my lips. I pulled it away again and couldn’t hide the disdain on my face. All the guys were laughing at me, including Sean, so I closed my eyes and drank out of the straw and put it down. “There,” I said triumphantly. “I did it.”

“Congratulations,” Ryan said sarcastically. “Now you’re a normal person.”

Sean leaned towards me. “I love that you’re weird—if that makes it any better. You aren’t some unrealistic fantasy—you are real.”

I smiled at him, remembering when I said those words to him. “You got that right.”

“Don’t let him go, Scar,” Cortland said. “Otherwise you’ll end up alone.”

“Thanks.” I laughed.

Sean turned towards my brother. “When is this comedy show?”

“Around seven,” he said. “What are your plans for the night?”

I wanted to stay in the apartment, particularly in the bedroom, but I knew Sean wouldn’t go for it. Sean turned to me. “How about dinner and then we’ll rent a movie—something that couples do.”

“Are we going to make out while the movie is on?”

“We are an adult couple—not a high school couple,” Sean teased.

I sighed. “Fine,” I said. “That sounds good.”

“Okay,” he said. “That sounds like a date.”


I took Sean to see the Space Needle then to Pike’s Market across town. Sean seemed to be intrigued with everything, but I felt like he was paying more attention to me than anything else.

“So, are all people in Seattle obsessed with golf?” he asked when we were in the Space Needle Gift Shop.

I shook my head. “No,” I said. “Or I don’t think so, at least.”

“Let’s go to the music museum,” he said excitedly.

I looked at my watch and saw that it was almost six. We had been out all day, and I wanted to lie on the couch with him and cuddle like boring couples do. As long as I was with Sean, I was happy, but I wanted to be alone with him.

“Maybe we should head back and change before dinner,” I said.

He looked at me for a moment. “Do you even want to go out?” He smiled.

“No, not really,” I admitted.

“We can order in,” he said.

“That sounds wonderful.” I sighed.

“This doesn’t change anything,” he said. I knew what he was referring to, that he wouldn’t sleep with me.

I rolled my eyes. “I just want to be alone with you,” I said. “I want to hold you and cuddle with you. We can’t do that in a public place.”

“You’re right about that,” he said. “And we can make out while we watch a movie—if you really want to.”

“Yes, please.” I smiled.

“I feel like a horny teenager anyway,” he said sarcastically.

“We can change that,” I said as I kissed his lips.

“You are the devil, Scarlet,” he said as he pulled away. “You are practically trying to rape me while I’m trying to respect you.”

“I never said I wanted to be respected.”

“Well, get over it because I love you, Scar. You are just going to have to deal with it.”

“How long are you going to make me wait?” I asked.

Sean sighed. “I don’t know,” he said. “Until I think you are ready.”

“And how will you know if I am?”

I followed Sean out of a store. He opened a cab door and let me inside first. “I don’t know,” he said. “I just will.”

I crossed my arms over my chest and sighed.

“Don’t be mad at me, Scar.”

“Too late,” I said. “I don’t get it, Sean. I love you and you love me. We are together and we are happy. You are a part of my family now and we are perfect together. What are you waiting for? I want to make love, Sean.”

Sean glanced at the driver then back at me. “We’ll continue this conversation later,” he whispered.
