el todd

I donÔÇÖt believe in destiny.

In fate.

Or in soul mates.

But I believe in Hawke.

My life has never been whole since my parents left forever. I have my brother, someone I can barely tolerate most of the time, and I have my best friend, Marie.

And I have myself.

But when Hawke walks into my life, thereÔÇÖs an immediate connection. Our eyes lock and an unspoken conversation is exchanged. For the first time in my life, I actually feel something.

But he doesnÔÇÖt.

He keeps me at armÔÇÖs length and pretends thereÔÇÖs nothing between us when there clearly is. IÔÇÖm not the kind of girl to wait around for any guy, so I donÔÇÖt.

But that doesnÔÇÖt mean he isnÔÇÖt in the back of my mind.

Our paths cross again in a way neither one of us expect and it changes everything. Was it destiny that made it happen? Was it fate?

Or was it something else?

Excerpt Banner

ÔÇ£Have you thought any more about my offer?ÔÇØ

ÔÇ£Does it still stand?ÔÇØ I asked.

ÔÇ£Of course it does. However, I have one condition.ÔÇØ

I narrowed my eyes. ÔÇ£Which is?ÔÇØ

ÔÇ£You have to show me that beautiful assÔÇöjust a peek.ÔÇØ

I rolled my eyes but couldnÔÇÖt wipe the smile off my face. ÔÇ£Nope.ÔÇØ

ÔÇ£Then you at least have to cook for me all week.ÔÇØ

ÔÇ£That I can do.ÔÇØ

Without wearing any bottoms

I scrunched up a napkin and threw it at him. ÔÇ£Pervert.ÔÇØ

He chuckled. ÔÇ£I never told you I wasnÔÇÖt.ÔÇØ

I pretended to be offended but it only made me feel warm inside.

ÔÇ£So, when are you being kicked out?ÔÇØ

ÔÇ£Monday.ÔÇØ

ÔÇ£That gives me plenty of time to get rid of all the filth.ÔÇØ

I pulled my hair out of the hair tie and let it fall to my shoulders. HawkeÔÇÖs eyes immediately went to the strands and his expression changed. I fluffed the hair around my scalp with my fingers. After being pulled back all day, it felt good. ÔÇ£You seem like an organized person.ÔÇØ

ÔÇ£Sorry?ÔÇØ A blank expression was on his face.

ÔÇ£You said your place is covered in filth. But you seem so clean.ÔÇØ

Oh He finally came back to the conversation. No, I live like a pig just like every other guy.

Im so excited to stay with you

He chuckled. ÔÇ£DonÔÇÖt worry. IÔÇÖll give it a thorough cleaning. Just donÔÇÖt tell your brother youÔÇÖre staying with me.ÔÇØ

ÔÇ£Why?ÔÇØ That was an odd request. ÔÇ£He knows we hang out.ÔÇØ

ÔÇ£I donÔÇÖt want to give him the wrong impression. Knowing him, heÔÇÖll jump to the worst possible conclusion. He doesnÔÇÖt act like it when youÔÇÖre around, but heÔÇÖs fiercely protective of you. If he thought I even touched your hand, heÔÇÖd come after me with a chainsaw.ÔÇØ

Thats a little excessive

Hawke shrugged. ÔÇ£HeÔÇÖs your brother. If heÔÇÖs crazy, youÔÇÖre crazy.ÔÇØ

Thats a slippery slope

His phone lit up on the table with a message. I knew I shouldnÔÇÖt read it but I did. Come over tonight. It was from a girl named Brittany. I quickly looked away like I hadnÔÇÖt read it.

Hawke locked the screen so it turned black. He knew I saw it.

e.l. todd teaser 3I kept acting like I didnÔÇÖt. I knew what he did in his spare time. It shouldnÔÇÖt bother me but sometimes it did. It wouldnÔÇÖt matter if he seemed happy, but it was clear he was miserable. It seemed like he was making himself suffer on purpose.

But why?

ÔÇ£I should head home,ÔÇØ Hawke said as he slid out of the booth.

Or you should head to BrittanyÔÇÖs. ÔÇ£Me too. I have to start packing. Ugh, IÔÇÖm not looking forward to that.ÔÇØ

ÔÇ£I would offer to help, but I donÔÇÖt want to.ÔÇØ He gave me a smile that told me he was joking.

ÔÇ£IÔÇÖll see you later.ÔÇØ

ÔÇ£Bye, Muffin.ÔÇØ

I raised an eyebrow. ÔÇ£What did you just call me?ÔÇØ

ÔÇ£What?ÔÇØ He turned back around. ÔÇ£YouÔÇÖre the muffin girl. So, IÔÇÖll call you Muffin.ÔÇØ

ÔÇ£ThatÔÇÖs the silliest nickname IÔÇÖve ever heard.ÔÇØ

ÔÇ£And yet, it fits you perfectly.ÔÇØ
