“We can’t…” he told me.
“I know,” I agreed.

Then her mouth was on mine again, and this time, I knew there would be no turning back. There were no walls this time. Our bodies wrapped together as she tried to get my coat off, then her shirt, then my shirt. … It really was a lot like when we’d fought out on the quad earlier-that same passion and heat. I think at the end of the day, the instincts that power fighting and sex aren’t so different. They all come from an animal side of us.

Yet, as more and more clothes came off, it went beyond just animal passion. It was sweet and wonderful at the same time. When I looked into her eyes, I could see without a doubt that she loved me more than anyone else in the world, that I was her salvation, the same way that she was mine. I’d never expected my first time to be in a cabin in the woods, but I realized the place didn’t matter. The person did. With someone you loved, you could be anywhere, and it would be incredible. Being in the most luxurious bed in the world wouldn’t matter if you were with someone you didn’t love.”
