His face was only mere inches from me. I just needed to reach out a little further to kiss him..."Yeah. Over my dead body." I snapped, before throwing my arms out forcefully, shoving my hands into his chest, pushing him from me.-*-*-*-He, is Carter Williams. I, am Lacey Adams.We were once, inseparable.
