When the man from her past comes screaming into her future Savannah has a decision to make and two people are gonna have their heart broken and one of them was undoubtedly going to be her










“Well I think we should probably get going. Savannah are you ready?” She asks. I know that if I tell her no I am going to get an ear full so I relent and go with them.
“Thanks for coming to dinner and it was very nice to meet you both,” Sebastian says sliding out his hand to Bree. She doesn’t take it nor does she say anything to him. Carter, reluctantly shakes his hand.
“We will meet you outside Van,” Bree tosses over her shoulder while walking toward the door. Sebastian must sense my anger.  
“What’s wrong?” he asks.
“Why did you have to do that Sebastian? I am trying to show them we are just friends and then you went and messed it all up,” I snap at him as he runs his hand down his face.
“Fuck Savannah. I am your friend okay and I am trying really hard to not be attracted to you, but showing up like that,” He waves his hand up and down my body. “Isn’t making things easy on me. I can’t help that I feel something for you and you shouldn’t care what they think either. If they really care about you they will want you to be happy,” He says before sighing.
“Damn it Sebastian, we talked about this the other night. We are friends nothing more. Nothing is ever going to happen between us. Please figure out if you can deal with that because I can’t deal with anything more right now,” I say annoyed.
He stares at me and I see him hesitate for a second before he steps closer to me. I take a step back but run into the brick wall of the restaurant.  He closes me in by placing both hands on the wall around my head and I can’t breathe or think with him this close. I dart my tongue out to wet my lips. I hear him say “That’s all I needed.” before he crushes his mouth to mine. I cry out from the force of his kiss and he slips his tongue past my lips. My tongue collides with his and they twist together.  I clinch his shirt into my fists to bring him closer to me. I am pressed so hard into the brick wall my back is scraping against the roughness. He presses his tongue deeper into my mouth then pulls back slightly and nips my bottom lip to pull it into his mouth, and then he sucks it slightly. I moan into his open mouth. Abruptly, he breaks the kiss and pushes off the wall breathing deeply.
He pinches my chin between his thumb and fore finger and brings my attention to his eyes. “When you stop wanting me as much as I want you then I’ll stop chasing you. This is going to happen one way or another, stop fighting it darlin,” he says with a smirk.
“I don’t know whether to hit you or kiss you right now,” I whisper.
“Well I know which one I want and I am pretty sure you want it too.” He rasps to me. I push myself away from the wall with way more grace than I feel I have.
“Goodbye Sebastian.” I toss as I turn to leave but he calls after me. I whip around and look at him.
“You might want to fix your lip stick if you plan to keep our little secret,” He says with a smirk. “Oh and Savannah, just one more thing, I am gonna tear down that wall you built, even if I have to remove one brick at a time." This time he turns his back and walks out the double doors.
