CLEAN YOUNG ADULT ROMANCE
“If you are kicking me out let me know so I can call a cab and leave before she comes looking for me.”
Cody put his arm around my shoulders and grabbed my bag of miscellaneous stuff.
“Of course not. Dad said he’d send you home but I told him we’d run away together after we packed some of the stuff you left here. I even pulled out my suitcase and threw some stuff in from my closet to get my point across. Apparently your mother’s anger is not as important as the fact that he promised the reporters I would give an interview. So welcome to sanctuary.”
