Excerpt from THE HEALER
I shook my head and Jaime squeezed my knee before walking over to
the nearest concession stand. Garren looked after him, and then joined me on the bench. “So is that your boyfriend?” he asked. I don’t know why, but the question caused my cheeks to flush.
“Huh? No, uh, we just grew up together.” People made that mistake all the time, but Jaime and I would never be anything more than friends. When we were twelve he had kissed me, my first real kiss, and I remember the butterflies swirling in my stomach. But for him, it had been an affirmation to a question he had battled within himself for so long. I had been pissed at him at first, then hurt, but when I saw how happy he was knowing who he was, I couldn’t take that away, and I knew I was the first person to really get him.
