It’s been years since my mother was in my life.
I learned to accept love.
That’s all done. She was away, and now she’s back.
I’ve avoided her for a year and a half, but I can’t hide anymore.
Mason has an internship in Fallen Crest, so we’re heading back for the summer.
And when we got there—no one was prepared for what happened.
If Analise and James hadn’t cheated, would your paths have run across each other?
Logan glances over to Mason, as does Sam, and Mason leans forward. His eyebrows knit together and he glances to the floor for a moment. His hands clasp together, and then he shares a look with Sam. “I think… we would’ve eventually crossed paths.”
“You think?” she asks, her voice soft.
He nods. “I do. With all the parties, yeah. You would’ve caught my eye no matter where we were, to be honest.”
Logan snorts. “Helps you were smack in our house, though.”
Mason laughs softly. “Yeah. I think that sped things up, but it would’ve happened. Eventually.”
Sam smiles at him. “That makes me feel better.”
Logan snorts. “You might’ve been dating Quinn. Shit. Mase would’ve broken that up real quick.” He narrows his eyes. “I kinda wish I could’ve seen that too.” He whistles under his breath. “If Quinn hates us now, he would’ve been plotting our murders with that scenario. Fuck. Do-over, please?”
