And that was saying something. Clearly, these thoughts didn’t reflect well upon my maturity level. I knew I should’ve grown up, walked away, traveled on, let it all go—or, at least, chosen to go into denial or therapy. But, see, a Zen-like acceptance of my fate just wasn’t my reality. As I watched Sam steal glances at me while lounging at the bar with Camryn, I had only one prevailing thought—I wanted to get bloody even with him. A few related thoughts followed: I wanted to extract some serious revenge in return for the emotional damages I’d suffered that last week of senior year in high school.
Then I looked back. Holy shit. There’d been times since high school ended, times over the past four years—indeed, a great many times—when I’d wondered what I’d say or do if I ever ran into the loathsome Sam Blaine again. I imagined myself holding my head high and carrying on with whatever I was doing without acknowledging his presence. Or, I thought I might lift an elegant eyebrow in greeting and say with perfect indifference, “Is that you, Sam? I hardly recognized you. ” Or, maybe, I’d be in the midst of laughing over something hysterically funny when someone else would break in and introduce us.
Me? Screw you, Sam—” He raised a brow. ” he said, implying with a tilt of his head that he didn’t think so. “You two have got it all together? ” “It—it’s pretty good,” I lied. His eyes traveled down my body and then back up again. ” Intolerable rudeness, Jane muttered, along with a few other choice phrases. I mentally turned down the volume on her complaints and swallowed. “Don’t be an ass,” I said to Sam. “Don’t sidestep the question,” Sam shot back. “It’s better than it was with you,” I retorted before I lost my nerve.
