I left home at eighteen with nothing but the clothes on my back and the bruises on my face.
I worked hard to build a life I was proud of until a simple case of being in the wrong place at the wrong time ripped my world apart.
With my conscience buried in a wooden box beside my wife and daughter, a beast rose from within.
One that fed on the guilty and sated its thirst for vengeance by killing everyone I held responsible.
Over a decade later, when the dust had settled, and all that remains are the ghosts that haunt me, a scared little girl, whose dark history could rival mine, worms her way into my life and my home.
I’m her protector, she’s my ward, but she’s so much more than just that.
She’s my redemption, my salvation, my chance to atone for the blood I’d spilled.
Yet she also tempts the beast within, and after a stolen moment, I’m left with the taste of sin on my lips and a craving for something far sweeter than forgiveness.
