Only time can heal your pain.
If I had a dime for every time someone said that to me, I wouldn’t have run away.
Because regardless of what they tell you, time doesn’t heal the pain.
Because what I was doing wasn’t living, it was a constant reminder of the life I’d lost.
Because I couldn’t bear the sadness I saw hiding behind Tatum’s eyes every time he looked at me.
I knew he loved me . . . But for how long?
One day he would’ve woken up and seen the same ugliness that I see every time I look in the mirror.
And that was something I couldn’t let happen.
With some help from an unlikely source, I fled to the one place I believed no one would ever find me . . . Virginia. Mark Dixon and Cole Security Forces helped conceal my past so the boy who holds my heart would never find me.
Until he did.
All I wanted was for the nightmares of that day to stop and to be left alone. I’m not the same girl I used to be, which is why I need to protect my heart from the devastation Tatum’s rejection could inflict.
But he refuses to leave me alone.
Should I take the risk and trust him?
Maybe they’re right.
Maybe time can erase the past and heal the pain.
Or, maybe Tatum will destroy what’s left of my heart forever.
About the Author:
Author BioStacey Johnston is an Australian author who resides in a northern Western Australian town with her husband and two younger daughters. A proud mother of four, Stacey divides her time trying to find the right balance between her family, her full time employment and her writing.
With a love of reading from an early age, Stacey often found herself getting lost within the pages. Toher, that wonderful world of make-believe was an escape from a life she didn’t always believe she belonged a part of.
Over time story telling became a big part of whoStacey was which is why she started writing them down a few years ago. Never wanting to limit herself to any one genre, Stacey has published works in theRomantic Suspense, ROMCOM and Women’s Fiction genres.
The one thing about being a writer that Stacey adores is the transference of those words fromhermindonto paper,so they can be shared with readers who are willing to take a leap of faith with a seemingly unknown author.In addition to that,if Stacey can create the whole disappearing into another world and imagining you aretherefeelingfor her own readers, it further aids in keeping her motivated.
That’s the beautiful thing about being a writer though, having the ability to create something magical just by walking past a stranger in a supermarket or on the street.
