Another Day Another Excerpt

Here is another excerpt from my book Forever Yours:

Lisa looked down from Emma and instantly spotted the happy face sticker on the shifter. It had seemed like ages ago when she put the sticker there. She totally forgot about it, then again why wouldn’t she? It was a sticker, a small insignificant sticker yet the sight of it caused tears to well up in her eyes.
“You ok Li?” Emma saw the glassy look in Lisa’s eye and as soon as Lisa bit her lip Emma knew something was wrong. Lisa didn’t say anything she was scared if she spoke the tears would start to flow and she wouldn’t be able to stop them. She took a deep breath and waved her hands at her face. “Li what is it?” Lisa pointed to the sticker but still didn’t say a word. “What is up with that sticker? Steve kept staring at it the other day too.”
“He was?” Lisa asked.
“Yeah he was.” Lisa looked up at Emma and a smile tugged at the side of her mouth and a tear fell down her cheek. “You miss him don’t you?” Lisa wiped the tear from her cheek.
“I don’t know if I miss him or the idea of him. Besides you don’t meet the person you are supposed to be with when you’re fourteen.”
“Why not?”
“It would be too easy.”
“Did you ever think that maybe it is that easy?”
“No, because if we were meant to be together then we would be together and we’re not.
“Maybe you guys just needed to find yourselves first before finding each other.”
“What’s the point in that then? I mean come on you are basically thrown on a roller coaster of emotions at top speed only to be thrown from your seat exhausted and drained and for what?”
“No one said love was easy.”
“Yeah and no one said it was this hard either.”
