He stared at me, as if trying to memorize me. My cheeks heated, and I glanced away from his scrutiny. “You could always make new memories, you know. Perhaps the old ones weren’t worth saving.”
I met his dark eyes, storming in color. There was such emotion behind his words, more than I’d ever heard from him.
“How can I be me without them? It’s who I am. Without them, I’m hollow like an empty shell. An illusion of my former self that I’ll never compare to.”
“You aren’t an illusion to me. You’re perfect the way you are.”
My heart clenched, and I closed the space between us, throwing my arms around him. He stiffened, surprised.
“I’m giving you a hug and you’re going to like it,” I said, my cheek pressed into his tunic.
“I see,” he whispered. His shoulders relaxed, his arms wrapping around me like a ring of protection.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Callie Thomas was born in California but moved away immediately after, living in more places in the United States than she can remember. Even now, she can’t stay in one spot too long, but you can usually find her on the sandy shores of someplace tropical, possibly with a coconut drink in her hand. Callie has been writing since middle school when her teacher caught her writing stories instead of vocabulary words in her 7th grade English class. Plagued by doubt, she went in a completely different direction and graduated college at George Mason University with a Bachelor of Science in Graphic and Web Design. But the stories never stopped. Older and wiser (she hopes), she is finally ready to take a leap of faith with her writing. She recently published her first Vella series, A Forest of Stolen Memories, and is currently writing her first novel, The Captain’s Daughter.
