Chapter Twenty Eight

I opened the door to Carol’s Books and luckily I was the first one in. Carol had asked me if I was able to come over and I told her that I would. That I’d be the first one in in fact, she had sounded busy.

I tried not to cry as I saw the familiar walls and the bookshelves and all the memories they suddenly held.

They weren’t the same. Or maybe it was me who had changed. Maybe I was the one who wasn’t the same.

I walked around and smiled at the Young Adult section when my phone went into erratic vibrations.

“Hello?” I answered.

“Hey Ave,” Logan’s voice greeted on the other end.

I smiled. “How are you?”

“Great. I’m already settled and I’m kind of liking it here. How are you?”

I bit my lip. How was I? Sure as hell I didn’t know.

“I miss you,” I told him instead.

“Me too, like you wouldn’t know,” he said.

I closed my eyes to prevent tears from falling.

“Logan, get your arse moving,” someone called behind him in a strong British accent.

“I have to leave, but we talk soon, okay?”

I nodded. “Sure.”

“Love you,” he said and the line went dead as I collapsed in the middle of the Young Adult section.

Somehow the whole summer danced before my tearful eyes. From the day he entered through that door and his voice as I’d eavesdropped, to our first kiss in this same hall, to Becca attacking me. Everything danced before me and I laughed between my tears.

It had been the summer that made a big difference. The summer that changed me more than I could have ever dreamed of. The summer I learned what love and heartbreak felt like, the summer I learned to stand up for myself. When I learned being yourself was the most precious thing to do. It was our summer, a summer I knew neither of us would ever forget. It was a summer for first love, the first kiss that meant something, but overall it was a summer of knowledge.

I’d be fine. I knew it.
