There's no turning back...
The music drew her in, as it echoed around the deserted place. Heartfelt tones of love and wonder that brought tears to her eyes, and made her throat draw tight. Had she done this to him, even without meaning to? Was this her fault?
Her mate's low growl served as a warning and a reminder, and she smiled through her tears. The fact that he'd allowed this meeting at all, hadn't torn the other man into shreds the minute he'd learnt of Jason's feelings toward her, spoke volumes of the leader he was.
The last notes floated into the air and Jason lowered his guitar, his gaze a hot caress on her skin.
"Say something, anything, please, loobylou," Jason whispered.
Fresh tears fell at that reminder of their childhood friendship, and she shook her head, and turned away. Jason reached for her, but she flinched away from his touch, every instinct screaming at her to run away.
"Enough! You've had your say."
Mason's strong arms pulled her off the ledge and his familiar scent surrounded her, steadied her, and she turned and buried her face in his hard chest.
"Lou?" Jason asked.
One emotion filled word that ended it all.
