she had been here before.
his fingertips grazed the inside of her elbow.
will you at least tell me what you are thinking he half whispered.

so numb from the pain.
so disconnected from anything that reminded her of him.
she had to – otherwise she would crumble.
self-preservation at its finest.
bay…please. his fingers trailing towards her wrist.
his tone soothed her; his tone irritated her.
her body betrayed her, leaning into his touch.
her eyes lifted to meet his.
instead of isaac she was greeted with a man she never knew.
a shell of an honest man.
an echo of a faithful soul.

hopefully with all of the rain falling this weekend i will be moved to write.
bailey is weighing heavy on my heart.

I love Bailey! And every time I read part of her story, I just want to sit in a room with her eating junk food and watching our favorite tv show. Or just sit there letting her talk… or even just be in silence. Sometimes silence is deafening, but sometimes it's peaceful. Funny how that works.
