Eight years ago a tornado devastated the community of Glen Springs. That same night my heart was torn to shreds when he left. Now, all I have to live for is work. I’m successful and have a good life, just like he wished. So, why am I so unhappy?
A tragedy is bringing me home and I’m now finding my well ordered and successful life hurled into a whirlwind of uncertainty. The biggest threat of all comes in the shape of Charlie Haart, the number one reason I have stayed away from Glen Springs for so long.
“Thank you.” her tiny quivering voice echoed round the room. “Thank you, Blaze. You literally just saved my life. Twice.”
He turned to her to say something just as she burst into a heart-wrenching sobbing fit. He eased onto the sofa with her and took her gorgeous, tear-stained face tenderly into his hands and wiped away the tears with his thumbs, kissing the tracks that they had made on her dust covered cheeks. Leaning in and kissing her forehead tenderly he replied, “My absolute pleasure, sweetheart. Knowing there could be a world without you in it would completely break me, do you know that? I would rather die before I’d let anything happen to you, Emma. I really would.”
She threw her arms around his back and nuzzled deep into his neck, taking comfort on the fact they were both still breathing and had so far got through this ordeal in once piece. “I love you, I really do. If you hadn’t been there tonight…”
“Shhhh, Em, it’s all okay. We’re safe now. I’ve got you sweetheart and I’m not letting you go just yet,” he replied and then in a sudden moment of lucidity, the meaning of his words sunk in. He wasn’t letting her go just yet, but probably in the morning things would be a lot different. He still believed letting her go was the right thing to do. Especially now if it meant getting her out and away from this bullshit weather and the threat of this ever happening to her again.
