In relationships, there are always fights. Arguments. Disagreements. Sometimes small, sometimes not. But the most important thing is knowing which fights to go into swinging and which ones to take the hit so you can end it quickly.
Through Love At First Fight, Andie and Cody don’t fight. They get along well, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t fights. Cody’s a smart man, and he knows which fights to pick, and which ones to let go.
Excerpt from Love At First Fight
Pauline shot her daughter an icy glare. “You’re making a mistake, Andrea. You know it, and I know it. Cody hasn’t said anything so we know he agrees as well.”
Andie shot him a pleading look, but he didn’t have a chance to argue before Pauline pressed on.
“Our guests like the inn as it is. Our guests have not complained. They aren’t going elsewhere. We are busy. And you’re spending money needlessly to ruin the inn.”
“I’m not trying to ruin it, Mom.”
“Well, that’s not what I see. This is our family’s legacy.”
Andie sighed. “I know. And I’m trying to ensure it will be around for the next generation.”
Pauline’s eyebrows dove into her hair. She huffed indignantly then stormed out of the room, slamming the door when she left the house.
Andie’s shoulders slumped and her breath left her on a shaky exhale.
“Are you alright?”
Andie jumped at his question, as though she’d forgotten he was in the room. She pasted on a smile that Cody knew was fake. He knew what Andie looked like when she smiled. A real smile. One that turned the blue pools of her eyes into the darkest of night skies. Instead, her eyes were overflowing with sadness. Sadness that kicked him in the chest and demanded he do something about it.
“I’m sorry, Cody. I need to pack this stuff back up and get some dinner. Everything is fine. Thanks for showing us what you have for the kitchen. I’ll, um, I’ll see you later. Do you mind seeing your self out?”
Cody nodded, wishing he could pull her into his arms and kiss away everything that upset her.
But he couldn’t. He had no right.
She turned away from him, her shoulders slumping as she studied the items that covered her bed. Cody turned and left the room, feeling defeated as he walked down the stairs.
He landed in her kitchen and looked around the room. He knew he couldn’t give her the kitchen Pauline ordered. The cabinets would be nearly impossible to change, but he could do more. He could make it better. Make it right. Make it Andie.
