I’ve been in love with Jacob Blake since he the day he picked me up in his strong arms, holding me close.
I was five years old.
I spent my life chasing after him—
Trying to make him see I'm more than just his sister’s little friend.
I never dreamed getting his attention would also destroy him.
A night that held so much promise, broke the man I love into so many pieces, I don’t know if he can be mended back together…
Or if he will even let me try.
