            Connor was overjoyed when Abby told him he could come home again. He promised himself the weirdness between them would go away once they were back to the old routine.

            Trouble was, he’d forgotten how much of ‘the old routine’ involved mixed signals and rejections. Kissing one day, distance the next. When he finally found the courage to call her on it, Abby promised she would stop messing him around. In turn, Connor promised himself he wouldn’t let her mess him around any more.

            Promises, promises.

            Within two weeks of getting home, every single one of them had been broken.
