When We Fall

Parker Holloway is an enigma.
Quiet. Brooding. Impossibly intimidating.

He also happens to be my boyfriend's best friend...and my best friend's boyfriend.

They say fate has a twisted way of bringing people into your life. I just didn't count on it to come in the form of a jarring betrayal.

Despite my best efforts, I find myself getting drawn to the emotionally unavailable boy who carries the weight of the world on his shoulders.

I don't expect to fall fast.
I never expect to fall hard.

But that's the thing about fateā€”it always gets its way.
