Cooper slid down the wall and crumpled to the floor. He sat there, back against the hard, blue surface behind him, but feeling like he had nothing to hold him up.
“Coop.” Noah’s voice cracked and Cooper couldn’t stop himself from looking at his friend. The pain and understanding in his dark brown eyes simultaneously comforted, scared, and embarrassed him. In that moment Noah saw something in him Cooper knew no one had ever seen before. Saw deeper than even Coop knew was there.
And he couldn’t turn away.
“I saw you with him,” he found himself saying. It was hell when the one person you always felt like you could tell everything to was the one to have you tied in knots. The one you wanted to run from. Needed to escape, yet Cooper couldn’t make himself flee.
“Jesus. I saw you kissing that guy and…What the hell is wrong with me? I had a beautiful woman in my bed and…shit.” Cooper shook his head. Slid both hands through his hair and yanked as though that would somehow change things. “I wanted to kill him.”
I wanted to be him…
