As far back as I can remember, I’ve watched the stars whenever they come out from behind the constant cloud cover.
Every time, I’ve wished for pretty much the same thing: to find someone to love for my very own. Someone who won’t disappear or walk away.
Tonight’s no different. I sigh wistfully as I murmur my wish into the great beyond. Doubting I’ll ever get an answer.
I close my eyes.
“Bella? Are you in here?”
Alice’s voice has my heart racing – it always does.
I blush as I answer.
She smiles at me. “I’ve been looking for you.”
