âI miss him.â
âHe knew everything already, you know? It was easy to be myself around him.â I reach out and take my drink.
âBut thatâs not all, is it?â Jess challenges before sipping her wine. âThe fact he knows what happened to you in school isnât the only reason you miss him, is it?â She lowers her chin, levelling me with her gaze.
I donât even know how to describe it, that soulful connection you get with another. When Iâm around him, nothing else bothers me. My world narrows when heâs in view, and I like how it feels to have those blinders on. Itâs as though Iâm focussing on the only things that matter: the people close to me.
âWhat if I misread him?â I ask. âWhat if he wasnât that into me?â
âHow many nights did he come over to see you at Kathâs?â
âMost of them.â
âHow many times did he message you?â
Jess glares, her lips curling up on one side. âYeah, he wasnât into you at all.â
Born and bred in Canterbury, New Zealand, Max now resides with her family in beautiful and sunny Queensland, Australia.
Life with two young children can be hectic at times, and although she may not write as often as she would like, Max wouldnât change a thing.
In her down time, Max can be found at her local gym, brain-storming through a session with the weights. If not, sheâs probably out drooling over one of many classic cars on show that she wishes she owned.
