"...Can you give me one f*cking thing in this nightmare and let me make my own f*cking choice?"
When I was done speaking I felt his body had gone still again, stone still.
Then he asked quietly, "Nightmare?"
"Nightmare," I replied firmly.
Ty didn't move.
By a miracle, I held it together.
Then he moved but it was to rest his chin on my shoulder and I closed my eyes because I needed him to go, go, go so I could fall apart again on my own.
Then he said, "Your nightmare, mama, was my dream."
My heart clenched.
He kept going. "Never had a home until you gave me one."
My breath started sticking.
"Never had anyone give to me the way you gave to me."
My breath stopped sticking and clogged.
"Never thought of findin' a woman who I wanted to have my baby."
"Never had light in my life, never, not once, I lived wild but I didn't burn bright until you shined your light on me."
"Whacked, fuckin' insane, but, at night, you curled in front of me, didn't mind I did that time that wasn't mine 'cause it meant I walked out to you."
He had to stop. He had to.
"Your nightmare," he whispered, turned his head and against my neck he finished, "my dream."
This is soooo good I had never noticed the length of the page...My God...the tension that builds up between Ty and Lexie just pulled my heart strings re-reading that part was just gut-wrenching and to be honest I want to punch Ty then and there 'cause he misunderstood Lexie..I know its been 4 months since I read this book..but its still stuck on me so I took a glimpse in the middle of the story...and I just got puffy-eyed all of a sudden...I know I'm blabbering words again haha...I LOVE THIS BOOK, LOVE TY LOVE LEXIE AND LOVE THE PEOPLE OF CARNAL, COLORADO that envelops them all:D
