I thought we were going to make it. We were almost there. It was like I could feel the end right at my fingertips. We'd made it through the wedding and the reception. All we had to do was help my mom clean before making our escape.
Then it happened.
Jackson was the one that snapped. I was surprised.
It all happened so fast. When my mouth opened, I couldn't stop it.
I made myself look pathetic and took Jackson down with me.
I'd confessed to having a fake boyfriend as well as sleeping with my brother's best friend.
It was wrong. I knew it was. I felt horrible as soon as I'd done it, but there was no taking it back.
I got out of there as fast as I could. There was no way I wanted to face my family. The more I thought about it, the worse I felt. I knew that I was flying home the next day, but Jackson would be left to deal with my brother and the only family he'd ever really cared about. Deep down I knew that he needed them, and there was a huge possibility that I'd taken them away from him.
I picked up my phone to see a ton of messages and calls. It was no surprise that they had all come from my brother. If I could get through a call with him and lunch the following day with my parents, I'd be able to run as fast as I could back to my life and leave it all behind me. I knew once I left, I wouldn't be back.
By the time I hung up with my brother, I was more hurt than I had been before.
It was one thing to think I wasn't memorable or good enough for HIM to keep me around. It was a totally different thing to be used just to prove a point.
I was on a mission, and I wasn't leaving without facing HIM and getting the answers I deserved.
That was the plan anyway.
Of course, nothing could ever be that easy when it came to Jackson.
