Half Hearted

Mia is still living in the past. She fell in love with the perfect guy and she knew he was the one. Until she found he'd been cheating on her with Victoria Paxon, the local slut on the corner of my street. Now that Brenden broke her heart and took half of it with him, Mia's not sure if she will ever fall in love again. But one day a new boy moves in across the street. His name is Adam Madison, and he quickly falls for his new neighbor. But he knows that her past had scarred her, he just wasn't sure what happened. Adam will have to find a crack in her wall she's built to see what's inside, but he might not be too satisfied with what he finds. Half of a heart doesn't love as a whole heart does.


5. The Kiss

Mia's POV~

   We were so close, I could feel his minty breath on my skin. I finally looked away from his eyes and stepped back a litte.

   "Adam . . ." I repeated. "I like it."

   Adam then stepped forward, closing the gap between us again and slowly lifted my chin with his fingers, forcing me to look into his eyes. "I like you."

   I opened my mouth like I was going to say something, but slowly closed it. I had no way to respond to that. "Um . . ."

   "What would you do," he started, moving his lips closer to mine, "If I would kiss you right now?" His fingers still rested on my chin.

   "I-I uh . . . I d-don't know," I stuttered. He was so close, I couldn't help but stutter. He made me so uncomfortable, yet comfortable too. It was like, he made me feel shy yet strong at the same time. Nothing like Brenden . . . Brenden. What was I doing?

   Adam slowly sealed the gap and touched his lips to mine. I started to kiss back the same pasionate way, but something was stopping me. Something named Brenden. I finally pulled away and looked down, seperating our bodies.

   "What's wrong?" Adam asked, concern in his voice.

   "I . . . I can't do this . . ."

   "Why not?"

   "I . . . I'm still in love with somebody, but they don't love me and I-I . . . I just don't know. I don't think I can love anyone else . . ."

   "I'm sorry," Adam said. He was so sweet and kind, he deserved someone better than me. "Can I ask a question?"

   "Yeah, sure."

   "Is this guy your last boyfriend?"

   I looked up, sadness in my eyes. I slowly nodded with tears filling the brims of my eyes. I blinked and a single tear flowed down my cheek. Adam quietly pulled me into his arms and sat on the bench with me in his arms, listening as I told him about the closet and Victoria and the facebook picture. He just quietly listened, lightly squeezing me every few sentences.

   "If he did that to you . . . why do you still love him?"

   "I don't know," I sniffled. "We'd dated for about 4 years and . . . and . . . I don't know. I just feel like . . . I don't know anything else other than dating him. I've never had to move on before, I had dated him so long . . ." I started to cry again and Adam just squeezed me closer to him, letting me cry it out.

   "I'm sorry," I whispered after about another five minutes of crying. "I just met you and I'm dumping my life story on you."

   He just laughed. He had a nice laugh. It wasn't loud but it wasn't soft. It was just a laugh.

   "So, now I have a question," I said, sitting up but still allowing him to keep his arms around me. "Why me?"

   "Why you what?"

   "Why do you like me? Why did you try to kiss me?" I asked, resting my head on his muscular shoulder. "You're so gorgeous and fit, like you have abbs and stuff and, god, your biceps. Why me? You could probably date anyone you wanted to. Why me?"

   He thought about this for a moment. He smiled then said, "I don't know. I guess it just happened. When I saw you staring through the window, I just . . . I don't know. There's something that draws me to you. I feel like . . . it's meant to happen." He laughed. "I realize you're still in love with some sleezy jerk but I'll wait. And when you get over him, I'll be there, waiting. Because, I know I just met you, but I feel like I'm meant to fall in love with you Mia Love."
