I want out. Plain and simple. This life isn’t the same anymore, especially now that Angel is gone. However, leaving isn’t an option. Even if the Church would let me go, I’d still have my brother. Seth is a virus. One that I take partial credit for creating. I had resigned to my burden of watching over him… until I found her again.
I’m done with relationships. I gave up on them the day my divorce was final. My new goals consist of taking care of my daughter, keeping my Grams off my back, and running my business. Then he appears, bringing along a ghost from my past. Lucien is everything a girl could ask for, but Seth is everything I didn’t know I needed.
I want it all. My brother thinks I don’t know what he’s trying to do. I know everything. I also know he isn’t man enough to do it. He wants a happy family, but he can’t protect them. Not like I can, especially now that she’s in danger. He needs me, and I need her. They say I can’t have her. I’ll prove them wrong.
