A beat.

And now you’ll never get rid of me. *insert evil laughter here*

I sucked in another of those breaths. Just go for it.

Keep bribing me with sugary carbs and I’ll consider it.

I hit send before I really considered what I wrote, and when I saw those words on my cell’s screen, I couldn’t believe that my fingers had typed them. I’ll consider it? Holy fucking shit. My hands shook as I set my phone down, chest heaving, panic rising again—

Dammit.

“Just enough.”

Cold water splashed on my face, hair pulled back into a tight ponytail, clothes straightened and free of wrinkles.

And it was enough.

To snap out of this cycle, to accept Damon wasn’t my ex. That I was different with him than I’d been with Tim. That I was different now. I’d pushed through the nightmare, had let it lead me to a new life and a new future. That was great and showed I was strong, that I could persevere, but—

I sighed. But if I pulled back now, had I really moved beyond the past?

No, because if I didn’t do that with all parts of my life, then it didn’t mean anything. If I was too scared to even consider that I might be able to build a future with a loving partner, with someone like Damon, then I had no hope of doing it with anyone.

My heart skipped a beat, but I nodded and stepped back from the counter.

No more dithering. I was doing this.

“Eden?” Damon called, his voice slightly muffled. “Everything okay?”

Was it?

I glanced in the mirror, nodded once more, though more firmly this time.

Everything was going to be just fine.

I strode out of the bathroom, pushed through the open doorway, and spotted Damon at the end of the hall.

Not thinking. Not this time.

Not stopping. Not this time.

I ran toward him and launched myself into his arms. The containers in his hands hit the floor, food exploding everywhere, but I didn’t pay any more attention to that than I would have a gentle breeze. It was Damon I was focused on, Damon I needed more than anything, Damon—

Whose lips were soft, whose body was hard, who . . . kissed me like I was the most precious object in the universe before gently separating his mouth from mine.

“Eden, baby,” he said softly, his lips curved, chocolate eyes warm. “You’ve made a mess of breakfast again.”

Clink. A big piece of the armor I wore fell to the floor.

I was surprised the sound didn’t reverberate through the house, it felt so monumental inside my soul, but . . . Damon didn’t appear to notice. He
