Skipping ahead in the story after Adam humiliated Davie by rejecting her in bed because of her virginity. Davie is confused and Adam is perplexed. He can't seem to walk away and Davie can't seem to forgive him. Here's another 8 from Courage of the Heart (creative punctuation was used)

There had been several times when he had started to call her over the weekend, but then he remembered how quiet she had been when he drove her home and tried to apologize. She had actually started to walk home, he followed her with his car for about half a mile before she finally gave in and got in - Adam felt terrible; he knew how badly he had hurt her with his rejection. If only he could make her understand how much he still wanted her, but he didn't know how; If only he could make himself understand why he wanted her so much…
Adam had never felt so frustrated about a relationship before, at least not since he got out of that little Pennsylvania town he grew up in. His teen-age years were filled with memories he wished he didn't have; so long as he could remember that time, though, he'd never be any good for someone as pure as Davie. He had been with a lot of women and he never made any secret of his appetite or his lack of emotional commitment. Adam had told himself that his unusual interest in Davie as a person and not just a sex partner was only a sign of his "growing up", at twenty-five it was bound to happen…eventually. He shook his head, because it was Davie and not his age that was playing havoc with his libido.

You've given me an insight into his behavior and it explains a lot. Well done, Chelle. I'm interested in what happens next.

Sarah Cass said...

Wow...the guy is messed up and still can't let her go. I hope they're able to find their way back to each other...I think there's a lot to learn there for both of them!

Veronica Scott said...

He's certainly in an introspective mood right now...I think they'd be pretty good for each other actually (so your writing has me invested in both of them). Great snippet!

Jess Schira said...

I completely agree with Charmaine. You've done an excellent job using this snippet to show all kinds of insight into the character. Kudos!

Poor Adam... and poor Davie! A little communication between the two would go a long way. I can't wait to see what finally breaks the ice. Great eight!

Unknown said...

Thank you for sharing this little bit. Sounds like he is doing some growing up. I agree with Nora, a little communication will go a long way : )

Linda said...

He really needs to make up his mind sometimes soon.

Poor guy! Hope they're able to work it out. Great insight.
