“How come destiny only feels realistic in fairytales?” Sean asked.
“You mean like when the prince kisses Aurora and wakes her from her enchanted sleep and they fall madly in love at first sight?”
Smiling, he glanced cautiously around before smoothing the hair back from her brow. “Exactly.”
“Maybe because nowadays we feel we have to get to know a person before we can truly believe we’ve fallen for them.”
“I know you.” The way he was looking at her right now, she believed him. “I understand you, Justine. What I see on the inside makes you more beautiful than ever.”
He wasn’t making this easy. Not only that, he’d made a fair point because she felt the same way. His art gave her insight into the man—how he viewed things, what he felt, where his passions lie, and what causes concerned him. Oh yes, she understood him, beyond the articles she’d read. She’d never met a more compelling and appealing man in her life.
“It’s my fault,” she said softly, her heart heavy as she memorized every detail of his handsome face knowing they couldn’t keep meeting like this. “I feel like I’ve led you on when I had no business doing it.”
“I would have fought my way to you anyway.” The sincerity, the commitment in his eyes rocked her.
“I believe you.”
“But the timing is wrong,” he finished for her.
“Yes,” she agreed sadly. “Don’t wear yourself out against that wall of thorns or all you’ll get is resistance.”
He showed her his hands, surrendering to her request. “As you wish.”
She felt like crying when she returned to her seat. Even though the ending of the ballet was lovely, and the celebrations of the marriage were wonderful, she felt even more removed from her own happy ending.
Meeting the right man, at the wrong place, at the worst possible time can only mean one thing - politics just got sexy.
