Will Audree see the truth about Gavin before it is too late?
Will Audree and Gavin finally give in tell each other how they feel and what they want?
“Audree, you climbed into my bed,” he huffed. “I was sleeping.”
“You were dreaming about me. You were touching yourself while you were dreaming about me.” She blocked his path to move around the horse.
“So that gives you the right to come into my room and fuck me? What if I did that to you?”
“I’ll leave my door open,” she snapped.
“Ugh, Audree. I told you that night that we couldn’t happen, that it would only be that night.”
“Then why didn’t you stop me from fucking you! You are a big strong man. You could have picked me up and moved me. You’ve done it before. You could have pushed me away. You could have told me to stop,” she stomped. “But you didn’t, because you wanted it as much as I did. You want me, Gavin, but you won’t take me. I have made a complete ass out of myself for years. I have thrown myself at you because I feel what is between us. I want to be with you. I want to be in your arms, in your bed, in your fucking heart.” She refused to let the tears banging against her lids fall in front of him.
“I know you have been with other women, but I want to be yours. I want you to be mine. I am standing here before you making the biggest fool of myself; telling you that all you have to do is say the word. Tell me I’m yours and you have me.”
“Audree, I can’t! I won’t…,” he barked harshly.
“You can’t. You won’t. Well, fuck you, Gavin Montgomery. Next time you see me I might not be available and I sure as hell won’t be climbing into your bed again. So you enjoy those dreams about me and you remember the feel of my body on top of you, underneath you and in front of you. Remember how you feel being inside of me, because it can’t and won’t happen again!” She stormed out of the barn and heard the clanging of metal hitting the barn wall, but refused to turn back to him. This time it wasn’t him leaving without a word; she was the one leaving. She called Ruby to tell her she was heading back to school, and if she wanted a ride, she needed to be ready in twenty minutes.
