Laiken has finally heard the dark rumors about me.
Everyone who hears runs away. But she can’t.
She’s trapped here, in my house—with me.
Each minute we’re together I’m driven to swallow her up. To see if the electricity that moves between us will grow or vanish. I thought we were falling in love. Now, I’m sure that she hates my very existence.
But when she glares at me… I see a flicker of desire in her blue eyes. The way she fixates on my mouth reminds me of how filthy we’ve been.
How filthy we could be.
My father has warned me to stay away from her. He knows she’s become my weakness. All my life, I just wanted to be the perfect soldier for him. To do everything he asked so he’d be proud.
I thought I could.
Laiken is doing her best to prove me wrong.
