I thought I knew what heartbreak was. I’d experienced the hurt and
betrayal of a relationship ending in disaster once before, so I was familiar
with the empty feeling that came from my chest being torn open and my
heart ripped out. Somehow though, this time felt worse. I’d foolishly trusted
Noah with my slowly healing heart only for him to take a hammer to the
cracks, shattering the fragile pieces until they were nothing more than specks
I let out a long sigh as I stared up at the night sky. It was dark and
completely clear tonight, and the stars were so bright it almost felt like they
were mocking me from above. Why couldn’t I be a star? They were perfect
and untouchable, and they never had to deal with pain or sorrow.
A low chuckle came from beside me, and I glanced over to find Wes had
turned his head and was watching me rather than the sky. It was just the two
of us. We were resting on the hood of his car in the middle of a field. He had
found me crying alone in the courtyard after Noah broke up with me and had
whisked me away. He hadn’t pressured me to explain why I was so upset. He

“Is something funny?” I asked, tugging his suit jacket in closer around me
as the evening air danced across my skin. Wes had to be cold without his
jacket, but he had refused to take it back when I’d offered it to him. I didn’t
have the energy to argue.
“You’re scowling at the stars like they’ve done something to piss you
“Yeah, well, maybe they have.” I threw another scowl up at the sky. “It
feels like they are rubbing their happy, sparkling butts in my face.”
“I didn’t know stars had butts.”
“Oh, they do,” I replied, rolling to my side so I could look directly at
Wes. “They’re big balls of gas, after all. And we all know where gas comes
Wes laughed, and I somehow managed a small grin in response. It
quickly fell from my lips though. How could I smile after everything that had
“So, Matthew LaFleur is your father,” Wes said.
Now that we’d broken the silence, Wes was probably eager to start asking
questions. I wasn’t surprised this was the first one he ventured, having seen
