  by Jay McLean

In one night my fairytale ended. Or it may have begun. This is my story of friendship and love, heartbreak and desire, and the strength to show weakness.

One night I met a girl. A sad and broken girl, but one more beautiful than any other. She laughed through her sadness, while I loved through her heartbreak.

*This is our story of a maybe ever after.*

He was right. It made no difference whether it was 6 months or 6 years.
I couldn’t undo what had been done. I couldn’t change the future.
I couldn’t even predict it.
It was one night.
One night when everything changed.
It was so much more than just the betrayal.
It was the Tragedy.
The Deaths.
The Murders.
But it was also that feeling.
The feeling of falling.

    I pull back slightly from him and wait until he's looking at me.

   "Jake, I can't. I mean we can't..." My hands are still wrapped around his neck, him hovering over me. "we can't do--"
   "It's okay, Kayla." He kisses my forehead. "We don't have to do that, not yet. But, please, just let me touch you. I think I'd die if I couldn't..."
    He trails off, searching my face for an answer, I nod.

    His head dips down to kiss my chest, lower and lower until he gets to the swell of my breasts. His hands move to the hem of my top and begin to lift it over my stomach, my breasts, I sit up and help him remove it. Instantly, I lean into him, bare chested, skin on skin as he holds me. The heat from his skin radiating. He hasn't seen me topless before, and I'm afraid. He gently grips my shoulders, and slowly lowers me back into a laying position.
    I reluctantly move. I lay there, still, watching him take me in. His eyes roaming from my face down my chest, resting on my breasts.

   "God, Kayla. You're so fucking beautiful," he whispers before he lowers his head.
