Bound by marriage to Damian, I sometimes wonder what he sees when he looks at me. Deer in headlights, I guess. 

What I see is clear.

Darkness.
Desire.
Carnal want.

A man with too much experience.

The night he took me he told me I belong to him. He proved it on our wedding night. And I believe him when he says he’ll keep me safe. He won’t let anyone touch what’s his.

But I can’t forget what he is. Can’t forget the things he’s done.

And no matter what, I can’t let myself fall in love with him.
