Excerpt #3

Snow crunched under my feet as I trudged toward the steps, great sobs pouring out of my core. I couldn’t feel my legs. I couldn’t feel anything but the serrated knife in my heart. My foot slipped on a patch of ice and I landed hard on my knees. The pain that lanced up my legs...
was almost welcome—something, anything to occupy my mind other than what I'd seen. Giving up the fight, I curled into a ball on the frozen earth and just let the tears come.

Aiden’s footsteps coming toward me made my head snap up. I glared at him through a jagged haze of pain. “Stay away from me!”

He dropped to one knee at my side and touched my arm. I jerked away from him.

“I would never do anything to hurt you. You know that. I love you. Please, Lindsey.”
