You Had the Best Company

---Tyler's POV--

Something was wrong with Karina right after she started trying on the dresses. I noticed her puffy red-rimmed eyes right away and thought that she might not have liked the dresses.

But then I remembered that she had scars that I'd seen when I'd helped her wash out her hair a couple of weeks ago.

Maybe she's insecure and afraid of what I'd think of her.

Damn, she looked hot in the last dress she walked out in. I walked over to the cashier and paid for the dress because I could see that she was in love with it.

I heard a sniffle coming from the dressing room and took my chances as I opened her door. She was staring at herself in the mirror with a frown as she silently cried.

Couldn't she see how beautiful she was?

I guess not because she was more upset about her body than the fact that she didn't have a top on. I tried to keep my eyes from wandering but it was difficult. She had an extremely defined body.

I comforted her as much as I could and was shocked when she grabbed me in a hug. Growing up, I was never a fan of hugs from my mom but this felt different. Like I was emotionally connected to her.

When I got out, I saw that she'd already paid for my clothes and chuckled.

This woman's got a backbone. She doesn't mess around. When she says she'll do something, she means it.

We walk out together and I drop her to her apartment.

"I'm sorry I ruined our trip," she starts and I stop her right there.

"You didn't. You were strong sweetheart. It takes guts to let people into your life. Especially when you have a hard time trusting people," I respond with a smile.

Her mouth gapes open for a second as she processes my words.

"I had a good time, Ty. Thanks," she says with a true grin.
