Book Excerpt

If I’m honest with myself, I secretly wanted him to look at me, talk to me, and flirt with me. I wanted him to jump the table and tell Lára to fuck off because he was mine now. I wanted him to want me so much after seeing me for the first time that he just had to have me, and to hell with the consequences. I think a small fanciful spot in my mind hoped that it might be a possibility.

I’ve come to learn that there are always two parts of the mind: the dark, dirty part that always thinks of the things you would never admit to anyone, because you know they’d judge you and the mean, spiteful, selfish things you think about. They’re all there.

Then there is the realistic, moral side. This is the side that comes out in the open for most people, where they say the right things, want the right things, and are selfless and giving. We all have both sides. Make no mistake in thinking that you don’t. Sometimes, I think my dark side isn’t so far under the surface. It burns for Ari and craves for him to crave me. I’m almost desperate to claim back a piece of what we had online over the years. I’m kind of frightened by its intensity and how difficult it is for me to control this part.

My realistic, moral side helps talk me down. She reminds me that I feel guilty for thinking these thoughts and that Lára doesn’t deserve for me to come between the two of them. It doesn’t matter what I will be missing out on and sacrificing to keep it that way.
