Wyatt’s Melody (The Pub, #2.5)
by Nicole De La Cruz
After years of being stuck in her abusive mothers trailer, Melody Turner finally has a chance to find herself. Eighteen years old, with a full scholarship to a school in New York, Melody feels free. The problem is that she somehow finds herself repeating history. Fearing that she may become exactly like her mother, Melody intends to hide away in her dorm. When her best friend Rowan won’t allow that, she finds herself attending a show in New York City that could possibly change her life forever.
Wyatt Foster lives life on his own terms. He has no interest in his parents’ wealth or the law firm his family has been pressuring him to be a part of. Instead, Wyatt finds that he can escape the pressure of his family through music as lead guitarist of the popular band My Soul To Keep.
Priorities shift when he sees her and Wyatt’s life begins to take a turn.
When I first laid eyes on Melody, even through her leather jacket, I could tell she was different and, after Rowan introduced me to her, I knew she wasn’t the typical girl at the rock show. The way she handled herself, she was shy and timid, but it’s what made her real. I know I must have looked like a creep just staring at her that night, but I’m not sorry for it. I couldn’t help myself; I was drawn to her. I loved the way she blushed every time she would catch me staring. When she would talk, her voice was soft like velvet and made my heart race. Whenever she would laugh at the stupid things I said it felt like a win every single damn time. I wanted to make her do it over and over because I knew I was the reason she was happy.
Despite the angelic perfection that was sitting next to me, one thing I would change about her is the way she always covered her smile with her hand when she would laugh. It was frustrating and I had to fight the urge to grab her hand and hold it in mine.
I don’t know what made me ask her out. I knew girls like Melody didn’t go out with guys like me, but I went for it anyway and I was so stoked that she actually said yes. I just hope I don’t make myself look like a fool in front of her. Usually I don’t have a hard time with girls, but with Melody, and the way she looks tonight, she’s got me sweating.
