Ten years after a school shooting, a survivor and the brother of a victim are still dealing with the fallout.
Ruined families, ruined lives, ruined minds… it turns out the one thing they need to heal was each other.
I can easily see Britt becoming an obsession. One with the potential to either save me or destroy me.
The question is, do I want either?
When Killer finally, for the first time since arriving, fixes his gaze directly on me, my brain stutters and stalls. My god, he’s not stunning—he’s both an angel and a devil at the same time—near hypnotizing to observe.
Britt deserves so much more than a walking corpse, someone who goes through the motions of living without feeling any human emotions except anger and violence.
When his strength envelops me, every wrong becomes right, every anxiety melts away, every doubt disappears. I feel calm, safe, whole. The spark of life that’s been missing inside burns bright, lighting me up like a solar flare, sizzling white-hot through my veins. Keller brings me out of the darkness and into the light.
The fact I feel anything should let me know I’m headed in the wrong direction, headed down a path of darkness, destruction, and failure. A path that will dig out memories so painful I’ve created an entire persona to avoid dealing with them. Yet I know—I’m going down that path headfirst no questions asked, no matter the outcome.
I might be a monster, but I’m a selfish one.
