Book Excerpt from “Not Another Wish”

Book Excerpt

If I hadn’t been so consumed by summer school, planning sorority Rush and the philanthropic events for the year, I would have lost my mind over Grant’s absence from my life. Although I was busy all summer, my heart was in a constant state of flux the entire time. Each time my phone rang, a text came through, or I checked my email, I was desperately hoping for something from Grant. At some point, I just stopped believing in him. I stopped wishing for him to contact me. I just stopped. Each moment was hard, but I faced the hard truth. Each step was devastating and my heart ached for Grant, but at some point I accepted the facts in front of me. Grant was no longer part of my life. He walked away from me, from us…again. I could have called his parents and asked why, but it wasn’t their place to tell me…it was Grant’s and his track record for being honest was severely lacking.
Colby and Jackson came to town two more times for business trips during the summer. Kendall was more than happy to spend time with them, and eventually I warmed up to the idea. They were very fun to hang around with. Jackson had me laughing every time until my sides hurt. Kendall was in deep like with Colby, and spending time with Jackson was simple, no strings- just friends. Jackson and I had begun keeping in touch on the phone, and sometimes we would Skype. It was nice to have a guy’s perspective on my relationship with Grant. I had confided everything to him about Grant. He knew how insecure I was feeling and lost I was.
Jackson was very thoughtful, his words always honest, never sugar coating anything, would put me at ease when I let my imagination run wild concerning Grant. He would tell me, “Don’t worry Sydney, he loves you, he will call, he is busy. He is busy with work and that is his focus, when he gets back things will fall in to place, you will see.” I would always agree but the nagging feelings in my heart never left.
