Maze Of Moments

Chapter Text

Ward shifts from side to side, his eyes glued to the floor. Things kind of went out of control yesterday and he blames himself for it. He wanted to piss off his parents but he didn’t plan on molesting Skye!

When his mother informed him that she was planing to set him up with a nice proper girl from their class he saw red. His parents never liked the fact that their middle son decided to become a vet instead of a lawyer or a doctor. They cut him off and he went through a difficult time for a while. Thankfully for him his Gramsy caught wind of what was happening and set the record straight.

He moved into a small flat after he was done with his studies and got a job with a local animal hospital. He met Skye there, she was one of the few people that kept taking strays in and taking care of them. So far she had a dog, Arthur, and two cats, Tony and Steve. They became friends quickly and it didn’t take long for him to fall for her. Skye was simply irresistible. 

He kept it to himself though. Skye saw him only as a friend and nothing more. He knew he shouldn’t have taken her up on her offer. One more drink than he should have and a small fight with his older brother made him do what he shouldn’t have. He kissed her with all the love he had and then ran because he got scared.

"I’m sorry that I got way too into playing house and accidentally kissed you passionately." He said in one breath and waited for the ball to drop. She was going to say that they shouldn’t be friends anymore and he hated himself for it because he was going to lose her now.

"Too bad." She said and took a step closer to him. Her face light up in a way it hadn’t before.

"B- Bad?" He didn’t want to admit that his voice trembled but it did, like he was fifteen again and not a twenty eight year old man.

"Yes, because I wasn’t." She grabs his shirt and pulled his lips to hers. Grant had the faintest idea that he missed something here.
