And I don’t have time to waste on decisions like that. Now, it’s my time to shine in the real world. I’m moving on, never looking back on the painful past my family and I have been trying to rebuild from.
That is, until I run—full-speed, I might add—into the man responsible for wrecking our lives all those years ago.
And then it happens—that bad decision. And wouldn’t you know it? I can’t stop myself. Wyatt Mills is a deadly force that I’m not ready for. And to be honest, I don’t think he was ready for me, either. That’s what five years of pent-up hate energy will do to you, I guess.
But Wyatt is the same guy who wrongfully accused my father of a crime he didn’t commit. Making us lose everything. Putting our family through turmoil. I hate his living guts.
But I got caught up in the moment.
And I want to do it all over again.
“Maryn,” he says with a curt nod. “It’s been a while.”
I feel this weird, sadistic smile spread across my lips as I take one step closer to him. Then I take what’s left in the glass, and turn it over upside down on his chest.
“Not long enough,” I whisper before setting the glass down on the bar and walking away.
