He’s also my enforcer. The strikes of his belt shield me from self-harm’s temptation, but old habits are hard to break. No matter how much light we infuse into our deviant world, we still feed off each other’s twisted desires.
Now I stand before him dressed in white, on the cusp of putting my fragile heart into his hands forever.
But what if forever ends today?
What if the past isn’t finished with us yet?
We’ve gone through hell to get here, and nothing and no one is going to take this away from us.
Even if I have to kill for it.
