Exclusive Excerpt!

Somewhere, James

was just as trapped as I was.

            I thought of the morning when we lay

with each other, curled against one another, never beginning and never ending.
How we’d stayed like that till the sun began to rise.

            James had reached down and pulled me

off the ground. He wore a satisfied grin on his face. “Someone is mighty proud
of himself,” I teased.

            He laughed. It bounced through the

forest, calling it awake. Readying it for the day. “I’m just insanely happy.”

            I stood on the tips of my toes and

kissed him gently on his scar. “I’m insanely happy too,” I whispered.

            James looked down at me, and I was

lost all over again. I would never tire of looking into those mismatched eyes.
They didn’t make him different. They made him him. He chuckled as he reached
over and pulled a leaf from my tangled hair. “They’ll know just by looking at
you that we’ve been up to no good.”

            “No good?” I purred. “I thought it

was very, very good.”

            James growled and lifted me into the

air. I wrapped my legs around his waist as he pressed his lips hungrily against
mine. I moved my hands to his hair, curling my fingers into it, attaching
myself to him. I never wanted to let go. Every part of me ached to be touched
by him, and every part of me ached to touch him right back.

            “Do you know how much I love you?”

he breathed into the base of my neck. His lips fluttered against my skin.

            I nodded, kissing the top of his

head. “As much as I love you.”

            James slowly put my feet back on the

ground. He cradled my face in his hands. “That will never change. No matter

            I looked deep into his eyes. “I

know.” Because I did. It was one of life’s few assurances. I would always love

            I pressed my lips once again to his

scar. “I adore this scar,” I whispered, unable to hide the smile that seemed
etched on my face all morning.

            “You’re enough to drive a man

crazy,” he said The tremble of his voice caused my toes to curl. I wanted him
again. And again. And again.

            My fingers traced the waist of his

pants. “Tonight?” I said, knowing full well it was a promise that I probably
wouldn’t be able to keep.

            James grabbed my hand and brought it

to his lips. “Tonight,” he echoed.

            As the sun climb higher into the

sky, I knew our moment was coming to an end. James reached down and placed his
hand over my heart. “Thank you,” he said.

            “For what?” I asked, my voice choked

with emotion.
            “For everything.”

            As the memory slipped away, I looked

back up at the night sky. Praying and hoping that James knew how much I wanted
to thank him too.

Today, Tiffany embraces popular Young Adult literature and uses it in her classroom. She currently teaches the following novels: The OutsidersSpeakNight, Dystopian Literature Circles: The Hunger GamesThe GiverThe Uglies, and Matched.
