Jack McLachlan’s POV
Shit! Am I too late? Has she let this Charlie guy into her bed so she could forget me?
I am a selfish bastard, and undeniably a possessive one, when it comes to Laurelyn. I don’t want her happier with another man and I’m petrified that she is. I fear he’s giving her the things I didn’t. And telling her the words I should have but refused to say because I was too stubborn to see the truth.
I squeeze my eyes shut as I brace myself for her answer to the question I’m bloody terrified to ask. “Did you let him fuck you?”
Laurelyn won’t lie to me, but that’s only one of the reasons I’m scared to death. I stare into the blackness behind my lids. I won’t be able to bear it if she tells me she let him get inside her. I don’t know how to handle that.
I feel her hands on my face. “Look at me.” I don’t know if I can until I know she hasn’t been with another man. “Please, look at me.”
I’ve never been more frightened in my life, but I open my eyes because it’s what she’s asking me to do. Her face is so serious. I think she’s contemplating how to say the words, how to break my heart gently and kill me slowly.
