She's ruining me, and I am absolutely, one hundred percent okay with it. The only thing I ever think about anymore, is Sage. Her. With those brown doe eyes, and those naturally pink lips that always felt like heaven against mine. Her, with the pale skin and dark clothes. Her.

I take another sip of my Coke; another long drag of my cigarette,.

Feelings suck.

"Hey. I got your message." Sage chirps in a slightly strange, bright voice. She licks her lips, before sliding across from me in the booth.

Fuck. I really do adore her.

The butterflies(yes, I still get butterflies) in my stomach erupt at the sigh of her magnificent features. Her smokey eye shadow. The cat tails that her eyeliner created.

"Michael?" She looks up at me.

"Uh, yes?"

"You fancy me, don't you?"

I go quiet.

She gives a tired laugh as my cheeks flush a heated primrose.

"I know you do, it's alright. I kind of adore you, too."

I really do think I'm beggining to love the smell of cheap motels.
