Guys like him didn’t want girls like me.
Or did they?
My life was a battle, one which I was losing.
Each moment I struggled to keep everything on lockdown.
And yet all it took was the man with the enticing eyes to draw me out.
He thought he knew my secrets, but he had no idea the pain I felt.
The torture I suffered.
The agony I held deep down inside where no one else could see.
Dancing had been my only savior.
But now he was too.
The marine who knew the deepest part of my soul.
The tattoo artist who turned my black and grey world into full color.
The man fourteen years older than me.
He’d vowed to protect me. To shield me from the evil I encountered.
But there was a dark cloud hanging over us.
One which promised to rain terror.
The battle had turned into a war, and there could only be one winner.

“You coming up?” she asked, but this time she didn’t turn to face me. This time she kept her attention solely on the door in front of her as she opened it up. I didn’t answer her as I followed her inside and up the stairs. The atmosphere swirled around us, and I knew I should have walked away then and there. I knew I shouldn’t have followed her into her apartment. But I couldn’t stop myself. She was eighteen. I was thirty-two. And yet, I couldn’t even use that as an excuse not to want to touch her.
She clicked on one of the side lamps in the corner of the living room, basking us in soft light, and the door clicked closed behind me. I wasn’t sure what it was about the closing of the door, but the echo made my mind up. I couldn’t walk out of this apartment without touching her. I couldn’t stare at her lips once more and not press mine against them.
Her hand fluttered to her chest and she whispered, “Asher.”
“I’ve tried to hold back,” I murmured, stepping forward. The room was small, but it seemed impossibly large as I moved toward her. “From the moment I touched my lips to yours a month ago, I haven’t been able to stop thinking about you.” I swallowed, telling myself to slow down, but it was impossible. I needed her to know. I needed her to see how I felt. “Fuck, Elodie, even after finding out who you really are and everything that has happened since, I want you even more.”
“I feel the same,” she whispered, and it was all I needed to completely close the distance between us. I didn’t reach for her, though. I waited. Waited for her permission. Waited to make sure this was exactly what she wanted, and as a final warning, I growled, “If you don’t want this—don’t want me to touch you—then you need to tell me now.” I heaved a breath. “Because I’m not sure I can hold back with you. You drive me crazy and—”
“Insane,” she finished for me, closing those last few inches. She placed her hand on my chest, over my fast beating heart. “If you only knew how long I’ve been waiting for you to kiss me again.” She smiled up at me, her full lips inviting. “I’ve learned to live in the moment, Asher.” She leaned closer, her lips a hairsbreadth from mine. “And I want to live in the moment with you.”

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Abigail Davies grew up with a passion for words, storytelling, maths, and anything pink. Dreaming up characters–quite literally–and talking to them out loud is a daily occurrence for her. She finds it fascinating how a whole world can be built with words alone, and how everyone reads and interprets a story differently. Now following her dreams of writing, Abigail has found the passion that she always knew was there. When she’s not writing: she’s a mother to two daughters who she encourages to use their imagination as she believes that it’s a magical thing, or getting lost in a good book. If she’s doing neither of those things, you can be sure she’s surfing the web buying new makeup, clothes, or binge watching another show as she becomes one with her sofa.
