The guests are invited. The cake is all set. In just a few short hours Sophia Bandell will be saying “I do” to a guy she isn’t sure she loves. But where does she go from here? She feels her life is headed in a downhill spiral. Her first and real true love, Tate Forester, is a ghost. But he’s the man she wants to be with…the one she can’t live without. Sophia is faced with the toughest decision of her life. Does she forget about Tate and marry the egotistical lawyer, Aaron Stuart? Or does she take the plunge and join Tate to be with him for eternity?
I scooted closer to him, peering at the gas gauge. “Are you sure we’re going to make it?” My eyes narrowed and I winced, studying the red line, barely visible, that had dipped way below the empty mark. “Looks pretty low.”
Aaron frowned and flung me a chastising glance. “You’re real reassuring. Do you think I don’t know my own car? We have plenty of gas.” He stroked and patted the steering wheel, looking at it lovingly. “She wouldn’t let us down. Besides, I know by now how to judge the fuel and the distance we have to travel to get to a gas station. Trust me, I know what I’m talking about. We’ll be fine.”
We turned south on Fifty-Sixth Street when the car began to act up. It jerked and choked. It sputtered three times and hesitated. The power faded away, and soon we were coasting.
“Should I still be trusting you?”
Aaron’s lips pressed into a thin white slash, and his face turned a bright red. He pounded the steering wheel. “Oh, for the love… You’ve got to be kidding me. We should have more than enough fuel. The gas gauge must be off.” He yanked on the wheel, steering the car to the edge of the curb before it lost its momentum.
My face heating up with embarrassment, I fought to hold in my I-told-ya-so snicker. I was literally more embarrassed for Aaron having to eat goat than for me to be stuck out here on the street with people I knew driving by and seeing me in this little oops moment.
He shoved the gear shift into park and opened the door. “You’re going to have to steer while I push us to the gas station.”
I gulped. “How far away is the station?”
“It’s only a couple of blocks that way.” He motioned with his head to the left.
I rolled my eyes and started to slide over into the driver’s seat.
Aaron leaned over and poked his head in. “Don’t roll your eyes at me, Sophia. You can push if you want. I’d gladly trade places.”
I swallowed uneasily, fighting the urge to tell him I would have gotten gas ten miles back, but I shut my mouth. There was no winning an argument with Aaron. It was senseless to even try.
