“The two of you have so much history together. I don’t want to come between any of that.”
Jeremiah reached out and cupped Corrin’s cheek. “You aren’t coming between anything. We both want you here.”
She wasn’t convinced. “I’ve seen the way you two are together. And I love being a part of it. But, I don’t-”
He stepped even closer to her. “You do,” he said softly. “You keep thinking about our past, but that’s not what’s important to any of us. Our future is. We want that to include you being with us. Why can’t you see that?”
Because it had been too much to hope for. But, she thought just maybe she could start doing that.
Today is Day 29 of Just Jot It January, and the prompt was “History”. This will probably come near the end of Playing with Fire. I won’t know exactly how that goes until I start writing. Even with all the plotting I do, the characters tend to have a mind of their own and don’t always go along with what I plan.
