The problem with heartache is that there’s no one-size-fits-all relief package. You can go to classes; you can try to embrace change. But when you wake up at two in the morning, a smile on your face because you’ve dreamt about the could have—the should have—nothing will console you.
Because seconds later, you remember.
And remembering can rip you apart.
Kate will do anything for her family. It’s why she took the job with Lee. It’s why she’s attempting to forget her pain. But it's hard to forget, when you're desperate to hold on. Even if Lee Collins is the perfect package.
Lee will do anything for the ones he cares about. It’s why he hired Kate.
It’s why he keeps his secrets; and it’s why he cannot, will not fall in love. Not with Kate—not with anyone.
The one thing he can’t forgive.
The one thing she can’t forget.

“The truth is, you can’t … you can’t die now.” My voice was tiny, and I leaned closer to his hand, laying my cheek against it. “Dad, I … I need you here. I just spent two months overseas, and the six months prior I was practically in a coma myself, damn it; I couldn’t stand it if I lost that time we could have had together. I can’t lose you.”
Tears leaked from my eyes and snailed their way down my cheeks, and I brushed them away with the palm of my hand. I didn’t know that I’d ever felt so desperate, so much desire for something for so long.
People lost their loved ones all the time. I’d lost Lachlan. Lee lost Ryan. Johnny lost his whole family.
But I didn’t want to lose again. God, please don’t make me lose again.
“Don’t die, Daddy.”
Two hours later, I walked out of emergency, bag wheeled behind me, and I caught the train home. Mum stayed at the hospital to be by Dad’s side. She wanted to be there always. Just in case …
It wasn’t until my head hits the pillow that I realise. I realise that I must believe in something after all.
Who else was I praying to if I didn’t?
