Sometimes we need someone who’s just like us. A friend who shares our thoughts, or a coworker who will fight by our side. But in any relationship, I think it’s good to have someone on the opposite side. Someone to challenge you when you’re being stubborn. Someone who will say the things you need to hear instead of just what you want to hear.
That person isn’t always easy to find. You tend to drive each other crazy at times. But if you can get past the differences, opposites really do attract!
Excerpt from Order vs. Chaos
“What do you mean?” she asked, finally meeting my eyes.
“You winked at me before the wedding. We had plans to get together Monday night. Now it feels like you’re blowing me off.”
“I’m sorry,” she sighed. “I heard whispers today about us.”
I glanced around and saw more than a couple pairs of eyes looking our way. I didn’t know why she cared so much. I wanted to kiss the shit out of her and tell them all to fuck off, but she’d be pissed if I did that. Instead, I nodded and took a step back.
“I apologize. I’m not trying to push things you’re not comfortable with. You had to figure they’d know something when we went to lunch every day.”
She nodded. “I know. And I’m trying not to let it bother me. I like you, Sawyer. I’m looking forward to getting together Monday night, but I’m not up for anything tonight.”
I smiled. “I was just going to wait around and make sure you got out of here. I wasn’t trying for anything else.”
She sighed and grinned. “Thank you.”
“So, do you want me to stick around?”
She glanced around and shook her head. “You go. I know you’re as exhausted as I am.”
“I am,” I admitted, “but I’d stay here without a second thought.”
“Thank you,” she said again, her eyes melting. “It’s going to take some getting used to that you’re a nice guy.”
I smirked. “I’m not always good, Kiana.”
She trembled, telling me she was as turned on as I was standing a few feet apart and unable to touch each other.
“Monday, Sawyer. If Monday goes well, we’ll tell everyone.”
“I’m gonna hold you to that.”
She grinned and winked. I walked away, knowing if I didn’t leave, I’d blow our secret wide open. It had been more than twenty-four hours since I’d had my lips on hers, and I wasn’t going to be able to resist much longer.
