The Chase - April A to Z Challenge - "C"

The Chase

He has known her most of his life. But he just saw her for the first time today. And he wants her. Her laughter was deeper than he remembers, her eyes brighter than the stars on a clear summer night, her smile more cherished than his favorite motorcycle. But she doesn’t see him yet.

She is still running, still feeling hunted and haunted after her last bad relationship. No mistake, she feels more alive than she has in years, the sun is brighter, there is joy again in her life. But she doesn’t trust herself to make good decisions, and while she knows it’s wrong to judge all men by the actions of a few, she doesn’t trust her judgement in affairs of the heart any more and doubts she ever will.

The chase begins. He will make her believe again, of her worth, in her beauty, in really living life and love. It will take a long time, but she is worth it, he is sure.
