Even days later, her fury felt like a kick in the teeth. He honestly couldn’t blame her. She had kissed him innocently enough. He had made the mistake of kissing her back a little more passionately than he should of. Still his arousal had been obvious for all to see. Sadly all she could see was his anger and rejection. He had suffered with egg on his face all week over that fiasco. His friends laughed themselves silly over it. He had gotten enough ribbing for that to last forever. Still, they understood the situation more than she did. She was innocent, and he intended for her to stay that way until the time was right. Some day she would understand. He was willing to wait for her, because he loved her. He had a gut feeling that no one would ever compare to Brianna and that she was the only one for him. One day he would make it up to her. Until then he would keep his ear to the ground, hoping with all his soul that someone else wouldn’t steal her heart before he had a chance to claim it. He knew that one day she would be his if the fates were kind. Until then, he would wait, hope, and be the best friend she ever hoped to have.
