Follow Me Down (manwhore series)
We went back to the hospital, since Lark was supposed to be there for one more day, and there was no doubt that Kieren would be right by her side. I had this queasy feeling that would not go away, no matter how much I tried to convince myself everything would be alright.. Aydan was with me this time.
Breathe in. Breathe out. Okay, I’m ready.
When we stepped into Lark’s room and saw Kieren sleeping on a couch, and Lark stroking his hair. She looked so happy, so in love with him. I was truly happy for her, but sorry for her at the same time. Her life was about to be turned upside down…
When she heard us coming, she smiled and whispered, “Oh, Peyton! You had me worried sick!”
“I’d say it was some fair payback.” I teased.
“Well, it’s a good thing you’ve got someone to look after you when I can’t,” she said, looking at Aydan.
“I’m perfectly capable of taking care of myself. I don’t need anyone.” I replied, slightly annoyed.
Aydan faked a puppy dog face, and I couldn’t help but laugh.
