Chapter Summary: Brian and Justin’s inner thoughts and emotions during the Ethan fiasco.
Anger, Betrayal and Forgiveness…
I used to be able to read him, but now I feel so disconnected. I used to be determined, even brazen in my pursuit of him. Now I’m so unsure, and I don’t know why. All I know is that I need to hear him say he loves me.
I came after him. I asked him to come back home. I even agreed to our stupid rules. I thought I gave him what he wanted, but he just seems so disappointed all the time.

I see him every day at the diner, and I put up a good front, hoping he can’t see through it. I miss him desperately, and I pray that someday he’ll return to me. I’m a total ass to him, always condescending, but it allows me to interact with him and still save face.
I’m on my own again, and all I want to do is go home, home to Brian. I actually look forward to his snide comments. At least I know he still feels something, even if he hates me.
Well, well, well, what do we have here? I glare at him as he pounds Dijon’s ass, wishing it was mine…
I can feel him watching me, and I know he still wants me.
“Taylor. You wanted to see me?”
“I’ve given it some thought, and I’ve decided you should take me back…
