Those people must not have ever been stabbed in the back by family.
His blood is nothing but a stain on my life.
He set me up to take the fall, and I did five years behind bars.
He’s my blood, but it isn’t thicker than water.
Not until I make a river run red with it.
Now that I’m out of prison, it’s exactly what I plan to do.
No one messes with me and gets away with it.
I’m going to take everything that belongs to me.
Including her. Gabriella Regio.
My brother’s ex-wife.
He keeps her under lock and key like an animal.
And I’m going to set her free.
My brother locked her up for a reason.
The same reason he put me away.
Now his day of reckoning has arrived.
But with Gabriella?
It might just be mine too…
If she went back to my brother, Gabriella would be nothing but a ghost to me. I was haunted in many ways, and losing her would leave me in purgatory, where the doomed, broken, and dangerous were meant to be.
“Goodbye, Sebastian,” she sobbed my name and hung up the phone with a soft click as I stared at her.
