Mandy lay passed out on Nathan’s bed. She’d lied to him, again, about the drugs. It didn’t matter how many times he found her stash. She kept chasing the high and kept pushing him away.
He couldn’t explain how much he wanted his Mandy back. The one he made love to, the one who loved without fear.
Nathan lay and wrapped his arms around her, pulling her close. It was only now that he could hold her like this. In the morning, it would be arms-length again.
“I know you lie,” he murmured to her. “But I can’t stay away.”
