He was everything I should avoid…
A silent lion in the dark; watching, studying, devouring me without a single touch.
His voice sent shivers up my spine, stopping my heart inside my chest as if he controlled the oxygen it needed to beat.
I danced for him because he demanded it. I lied for him, because he wanted it, even though I knew a single lie could get me killed.
He told me I was too pretty for this world, that there were things he could do for me. His eyes, the way they wander over my body, it makes me feel things I never felt before.
Feelings that have no place here. Feelings that don’t exist in my world.
I couldn’t ignore what I felt and decided to risk my life to ask him for help.
But I was a fool wishing on fallen stars.
When the smoke clears, I’m able to see him for what he truly is…
And it’s not the hero I wanted him to be.
How could I ever find love in the dark?
