When Trevor Cassidy steps foot on a bus to “Nowhere,” Tennessee, he boards with a singular purpose: to leave the life he led behind.
A desolate girl on the ride catches his eye, but he wants almost nothing to do with the ten-foot invisible wall that she’s built around herself.
But when calamity strikes deep inside the Tennessee forest, Trevor and the lonely girl, Kat, must learn to trust each other if they want to make it back to civilization intact.
Breaking down Kat’s walls will prove to be the hardest thing Trevor’s ever done, and on top of that…she’s hiding something: something that may threaten their very existence, their dwindling survival.
But how does Trevor uncover Kat’s hidden agenda without bringing his own to light?
I nod, never breaking eye contact. And how could I? With Trevor looking at me like that, there’s no chance that I can move, let alone breathe.
Every time our gazes cross, a shift takes place. It moves the air around us: swirling and circling, interlacing and enclosing. It weaves through us, wrapping us to each other: binding us… with this… need.
I can see in Trevor’s eyes all that I feel.
The apprehension. The latent confusion. That undeniable… need.
And there it is again: that needling… annoying… disturbing and somehow strangely consuming sentiment that we need each other. I don’t want to need Trevor. I don’t need him to need me, either.
Whatever it is that exists between the two of us, it is inescapable: invisible but potent. We’re two stars on a collision course, orbiting each other, dancing around another… until the inevitable happens.
A cosmic boom that threatens to rain destruction… or beautiful stardust, and I’m not sure which it will be, so I make a decision right then and right there.
The decision… to get out.
Get out while I still can: while I can spare us both the explosion that is bound to happen. While I can avoid the disappointment that will ultimately follow.
While I can spare myself Trevor’s discovery of my deceit.
