Was it good for you? It was for me. I suppose in the end thats all that really matters. I know thats selfish, but you know Im selfish and you love me anyway. For what its worth, I think I might actually miss you. Will you miss me? Will you cry? If you do, please drink a tear for me and know that I never meant to cause you pain. Our parting is no cause to fret. We still live and have adventures. Will we see each other again? Suffice to say — I hope so.
Her epilogue was short, but it captured the essence of our story: Survival is the most important thing. It affords us the chance to live and to find all of the things that make living worthwhile. I found redemption. I found forgiveness. I found love. That said, Livvie did a beautiful job with the ending and I can think of no greater tribute than to end this book as she wrote it with my helpful commentary along the way of course.
Submitted for your heartbreak, I present: The Epilogue 2. Sophia had written a very tragic love story, but it was a love story just the same. She had been very generous to him, painting a far better picture of the man he had been than he would have.
He respected all her wishes these days. Sorry, Rubio. Did you finally finish? I love the little dance. She lies; she just likes kneeling at my feet. As he read, he stroked her hair.
This is entirely true. He once again gazed on her sleeping form, unable to resist shifting her hair away from her face and behind her ear. She was the most beautiful thing he had ever seen.
He loved the soft noises she made when he did. He never did also true. She did tell me she loved me often—not with her words, but with her deeds and each time, it cut him down to his core. It was his outlet as much as hers. He needed to see it in black and white — the pain he put her through, the monster he had been.
He never wanted to forget what he could never allow himself to become again true. Since the night Sophia had met him at the Paseo, the night he had decided to leave everything behind and integrate into mainstream society, so much of him had changed. Away from the horrors of his youth, away from blood and vengeance, he was just — James. All around him, real life was happening, and he was a spectator.
I love you, Livvie. It sounds silly… now. Instead, she had met him there. She stood, looking like a goddess among commoners. Her hair lay in soft waves down her back, occasionally being picked up by the breeze.
She wore a black halter dress that hugged her breasts and bared her back. She also wore incredibly tall heels. They were dangerous, considering the cobbled streets. I can still picture this in my mind. He approached her from across the square. He was nervous. He wore jeans and a black cashmere sweater. The sleeves were pushed up to his forearms. He wanted her to know he was different. Her back was to him as he approached, but the breeze suddenly died and she turned when she heard his steps approaching.
There had been no words. He simply stood in front of her with his hands in his pockets. Her breath caught, and for a while she only stared at him. I love the way she smells. She touched his shirt and pulled him down. His head swam. It did! Then she kissed him, and it was all that needed to be said. He moved to Barcelona so she could still attend university. They never talked about the past. When people asked them how they met, she was quick to intercept the question and respond.
They had met at the Paseo de Colon. If only it had been so simple. She wanted him to spank her. She wanted him to bind her arms. He felt sick about it at first. Her proclivities were obviously his fault. Still, their games turned him on to the point of physical pain. They still do. He felt villainous, but what was done was done, and now he would do everything he could to give her what she wanted. He owed her much. Sometimes it was vanilla — and he liked that too very much.
Carefully, James lifted Sophia into his arms and carried her to their bedroom. He laid her down on the bed, smiling as she shifted around, seeking some way to get comfortable. He undressed and got in bed next to her. Just touching her made him hard. He owed her so much. Only everything. Suddenly overwhelmed, he held her impossibly tight. She whimpered and whined until her eyes opened and she stared up at his face. She kissed him so passionately, so sweetly, that James thought if she never kissed him again, this was the kiss he always wanted to remember it still is.
