How many of us have had childhood friends whom we were close too or left lasting impressions on us, but then moved away and we never heard from them again. From time to time don’t you ever wonder about whatever happened to them. This is the story of bestfriends rediscovering each other as adults. Here’s the blurb and an excerpt.
by LaVerne Thompson
Can the promise of young love withstand the test of time?
Childhood friends, David and Mia know there is something special, something different about their friendship. But then David moves away and whatever that something is they never have the chance to explore.
Mia waits twelve years for David to come back to her, knowing deep in her heart that one day he would. She’d made him a promise the day he left, she would wait for him, and she kept it. Unbeknownst to her, he has also. He never forgets her. Not where it counts, in his heart. Now he has to prove it to her.
He had taken several steps before he saw her talking with her parents but she hadn’t seen him. Her back was to him, yet he would have known her anywhere, anytime.
From the rear she was perfectly proportioned. Above average height, she would only come up to his shoulders in her high heels. He noticed she still wore her hair in that corkscrew style but it was longer now, hanging well past her shoulders.
When they were kids he loved nothing better than pulling one of her dark curls and watching it spring back towards her head. He wanted to pull one now. His gaze left her hair and followed the back of her dress, admiring the open display all the way down to the top of the curve of her beautifully rounded butt. Her dress ended just below her thighs, giving him a view of long sleek toned legs. She always did have nice legs. Yeah, he wanted to do a lot more than touch her hair.
She must have sensed him staring at her because suddenly she turned around and stared back at him. Even across the crowded room, he could feel her drawing him toward her; pulling him in until only the two of them existed in the universe. Just the way it had always been between them. There was no reason for fear.
Nothing had changed. He knew the truth now. He loved her still.
Except everything had changed. He was now free to show her.
