The only reason she took her seat once more was because she felt drained, emotionally and physically. She couldn’t stay here. That much she knew. And now, there was nothing else to say. Nothing to ask, nothing to clarify, nothing to get straight between them.

Then why are you still here?

Why was this so hard? She couldn’t actually be in love with him. The persona he’d carefully crafted for ten years and shown to her these past few weeks wasn’t real. How could it be? Then again, had he faked everything? Even the moments that were so real they’d left their mark on her heart forever?

As she gazed into his eyes, she longed to be able to reach inside his mind and know what was real, and what was not. Finding this out was bad enough, but if he told her he didn’t really love her, and hadn’t meant anything he’d said, that would be worse. To know she’d been fooled so easily would crush her.

“I have to go.” She couldn’t think. Not here, with him.

Before he had the chance to answer, she rose and glanced around. Both cats were in the kitchen once again, so she scooped them up and walked up the stairs toward the bedroom. Tears welled up in her eyes, but she blinked them away.

The expectation that he’d follow her turned out to be wrong. Part of her was grateful he had not, but another part of her wanted him to. She wanted him to beg her to stay. To offer some explanation for all this that made sense, and would allow the pieces of this fucked puzzle to fall into place.

The carrier she used to transport both cats at the same time was in the spare room, next to the fancy beds he’d bought them. As soon as she glanced toward those beds, huge sobs forced their way out of her throat and tears spilled over her lashes.

Blake had taken her and both cats into his home, treating all three of them like family. That couldn’t have been fake. No way. She couldn’t be wrong about everything she’d felt, seen, heard, and experienced with him.
