“I can’t believe you thought she would fall for it. You being a hero and all.” James lifted my suitcase into the trunk and slammed it shut.
“Well, it was worth a shot,” I said shrugging. “She always loved fairy tales when we were growing up so I thought I could be her knight in shining armor.”
I knew I was grinning stupidly, but I couldn’t help myself. Eliza was the girl of my dreams and I was trying to win her over by any means possible. So far I have been completely unsuccessful. I refused to give up and still had a couple more tricks up my sleeve.
I knew Eliza would fall for me eventually even if she didn’t know it herself. Eliza was the girl of my dreams and I knew we were perfect together. I knew her schedule, her friends, her clothes. I knew where she ate out on the weekends and where she did her grocery shopping. I knew how to bump into her around town without drawing suspicion.
I knew she wouldn’t forget me if I wouldn’t let her. I knew how to keep myself at the front of her mind. II managed to keep myself separated just enough from my family and friends that they didn’t realize what I was doing.
My next plan to get Eliza to fall in love with me was already in motion. I just had to get into her bedroom again and wait until she came home.
