About 20 minutes later you guys arrive at the entrance of the trail. You park and get out the car and you follow Tom to the trail.
"My 3 brothers and I used to come walk this trail all the time when I was younger" he told you. "My parents and I used to go hiking quit alot back home before the accident"," what happened?" He asked concerned. "when i was 18 my dad was coming to pick me up from a party, and umm before he could get there a drunk driver crashed into the car and my dad got hurt pretty bad, he got paralyzed from the waist down, he was in hospital for a while, when he eventually got out he was never the same.", after you had told Tom the story you were on the brink of tears, he pulled you in for a hug and held you tight, as he did this you started crying, not soft crying but sobbing,"I... I blame myself, if i hadn't gone to that stupid party my dad woudnt have been driving and hed still be okay", you said through sobs. "Tom looked at you with a sad look in his eyes," y/n it's not your fault, no one could have known that would happen". Tom held you for a few minutes and then you guys carried on walking, you guys got to the end of the trail and decided to head back. **1 hour later**
You had just gotten to your apartment, as you got out the car Tom did the same, "you don't have to wait for me you know, I can walk myself to my own apartment", you said with a smirk ,"I know but I'd feel better if I knew you where okay", he gave you a small smile as he said this. So you both walked to your door and as you went to open it you saw that your door was slightly open. "I think someone's gotten into my apartment, I remeber closing it" you said this with a concerned look on your face, you pushed the door open quietly with your free hand as your other one was now being held by Tom. You took a step into your apartment, Tom clutching your hand behind you. You walked into the lounge and you froze, sitting on your couch was Owen, the reason why you left home, he just also happened to be the reason your dad's in a wheelchair... (tbc)

Emotionally. Hungover. No other way to describe it. Jessica made me feel emotions I didn’t even know I had 🙀😭😍❤️💔 Move The Stars by @jessica_hawkins • Release Date - October 23 •
It was a hot summer day when I met him on the construction site next to my parents' house. If I’d known then what I do now, would I have kept on walking? Manning was older, darker, experienced—and I’d trusted him when he said the story would only ever be about us. I’d held those words close and challenged fate, but I had lost.
A part of me is still that sixteen-year-old girl squinting up at Manning, but no matter how far I fall or high I soar, I’ll always be a bird without her bear and nothing without him.
When I close my eyes, I can no longer see her. The decisions I made were to push Lake in the right direction—away from me. But now that she’s gone, would I have made those same choices?
I’d walked away like I was supposed to. I’d kept my distance. I’d bent over backward to keep Lake pure, but she’s no longer that girl, and I don’t know if I can stay away anymore. I only know I don’t want to. She’s still everything I want and nothing I should ever have, but if anyone can move the stars, it’s her great bear in the sky. #JessicaHawkins#SummerTriangle#BigBear#MoveTheStars#SomebodyElsesSky#SomethingInTheWay#ABookishLife#Bibliophile#Bookstagram#BookAddict#Bibliophile#ComingSoon#FanMade#TeaserTuesday#Booked#Kindle#Paperback#Ebook
