About Between Now and Forever
Real love stories, the ones worth telling, never end.
He was searching for the truth.
I was living a lie.
Our paths should never have crossed.
But, when we kissed it felt like destiny.
Falling in love was messy.
We broke rules we should have followed.
We made promises we couldn’t keep.
Forever felt impossible.
Heartbreak was inevitable.
Always would cost us everything.
This is not a fairytale.
This is a love story.

An Excerpt from Between Now and Forever
“Keep it. A little something to remember me.”
“So…are we, like, going to be like…boyfriend and girlfriend?”
Her eyes are expectant and suddenly, breathing feels a little harder. Those words make me think of things like explanations and disappointment. I’m not sure that I can be intimate with anyone. And what happens when she finds out about everything? She’ll be horrified. Or when I start back on the show and that whole world crowds in on us… she’ll get tired of it and walk away. Or I’ll be weak and break even more of my own rules and end up hurting her.
“Let’s not put any labels on it.”
Her eyes lose some of their sparkle, but she smiles gamely. “Well, no matter what we call it, the last few days have been awesome. I know a side of myself that I didn’t before.”
“How do you mean?”
“I mean, now I know, that given the chance, I can sit down with people I don’t know and have a great conversation. I’ve never been anywhere, but here. And now I’m going to get to travel with you—even though I’ll be seeing it through your phone’s camera. Meeting you was really good luck.” Oh yeah…The cheesecake.
I’m ruined. I brush my lips very lightly across hers and smile when she whimpers. God, I’m going to miss her.
“I promise, I’ll call.” It doesn’t make my heart race to say it.
“Don’t promise, Carter. Those are bound to be broken. Just do it.” Her eyes turn solemn and I see that she and disappointment are intimate friends. I want to break them up.
