“God, it tears me up to see you cry.”
I whirl, startled, and breathe a sigh of relief when I see Jake leaning against the wall beside my door.
“You’re here,” I breathe.
“I was trying to figure out a way to get you to let me in.” That smile. Even in the dark I can see it spread across his face, and I can’t stand it anymore. I just walk right into his arms, rest my head on his chest, and begin to cry in earnest.
