    Summary

    he couldn’t explain—there was something about her. it confused and fascinated him. but always—something, itching at the back of his mind that he just couldn’t scratch.

    she hated talking about her family. she hadn’t seen them since she was 14. they'd fight every time he tried to pry about them, so he tried his best to avoid it.

    she was always hot. no matter the temperature, her skin was always warm. he’d joke about it, saying there’s fire in her veins, and she’d smile, say she never really thought about it. there were times when their clothes were on the floor and they were calling for each other, when he thought he’d actually get burned from how hot her skin would be.

    she hid away from fights and shady alleyways, anything dark, possibly violent. it was something that had to with her past maybe—but he couldn’t help but notice something that seemed to be behind her eyes. it was primal, wild; waiting to lash out whenever arguments got to slamming doors and shouts. just for a second, though. she’d blink and it’d be gone, before she took a deep breath and counted to ten.

    something. he didn’t know what. but he wished he did.

    that is, until he found out.

    He sees her one night, on a bridge going to jump, and talks her down. She doesn't let on to him, and he gets frustrated, with her and himself, not understanding why he cares so much for a girl that pushes him away so far. But maybe that's why, he's always wanting what's bad for him
