Crash Into Me Chapter 5
"Long day?" he smiled. And what a smile it is.
"You could say
that..." I trailed off. That started it. We ended up talking, and we were having a really good conversation. I couldn't help
but feel like I knew him. Or at least, knew him from somewhere... "Aaron?" I finally asked. If I'm gonna blow it, I'm
gonna blow it.
"Hmm?" He asked, looking up from his watch, which now that I look at it, looked pretty expensive. Not
