We met for the first time when I was 8 years old.
I had just suffered profound loss and there was nothing beautiful or happy in my life.
Then she came in and she did all those things for me.
She made me feel special and happy.
I saw nothing but beauty in her.
But loss is a terrible thing to go through.
It left me with deep hurting scars.
I knew how to do nothing but push people away, so I did.
I pushed her away and a part of me has always regretted it.

He’s a boy filled with scars and I want nothing more than to help him.
But he’s used to pushing people away.
He does so to me countless times and yet I don’t want to give up on him.
Until he succeeds and my love for him turns to hate.
Now there’s a thin line between love and hate and with him, I’m standing on the edge of the line.
It’s all in his hands which side I fall into.
But I’ve always known where I wanted to be.


Chapter 1



Air whooshes out of my lungs and my entire body heats as I hurriedly turn away from the scene in front of me.

“Se-lena, so-someon-e’s, here to see you,” I stammer, looking anywhere but at them or at Joseph’s cock which I pray has been removed from view.

I didn’t mean to walk in on my friend getting a blowjob. This has to be the most embarrassing thing that’s ever happened to me. And I almost never get embarrassed.

“Who?” Selena asks, her voice sounds nothing like it usually does. I glance at her and she’s beet red.

“You couldn’t have chosen any other time to walk in?” Joseph questions a little angrily.

“It’s not like I wanted to see your dick,” I retort, still feeling the heat rush on my face.

“I’m sorry, Selena,” I say to the woman, still not looking at the couple.

“It’s alright,” she replies, her voice still unnaturally high.

“Who’s here to see me?” she questions again.

“Right,” I say clenching my fists as emotions rush into my chest.

Anger, surprise, embarrassment. Christ, I’m feeling so many things at once. But I focus on the anger and surprise, shock in fact because I just saw someone I didn’t in a million years think I was going to see again. And we’re both not too ecstatic about it.

“Alexandra Hale.”

I see recognition light up in Selena’s features. And then she smiles.

“She’s my friend. Please, tell her to come in,” she says to me.

“Like in here?” I ask incredulously.

“Are you serious?” Joseph blurts, angrier now than before.

It was a joke and I start chuckling.

“So are you going to tell her?” Selena asks, bringing me back to the crux of the matter.

I inwardly sigh. I was hoping Selena didn’t actually know Alex and this was all some sort of mistake. I’m about to turn around to do as she asked when Joseph stops me.

“Ritchie, not a word about this. To anyone,” he says.

“Trust me, this has been removed from my memory,” I say with a smirk, gesturing at both of them.

I walk out of the hospital room to find the bane of my existence. To think we would meet again, and that Selena knows her. It’s a small fucking world.

The last time I saw Alexandra, she was 18 years old.

Then and now, she’s barely changed. There’s still a fire in her amber eyes. A fire I could never understand. One that I’m sure has been utterly doused from mine. She’s also still 5’2 and she still hates my guts.

“Well?” she asks as I near her.

A dark eyebrow is lifted and there’s suspicion in her eyes. She doesn’t trust me. Never has, never will.

“Selena’s waiting for you in the hospital room. Surprisingly, she seems to know you.”

She frowns.

“I told you that. I also said there was no need to go and confirm but you didn’t trust me. It’s not like I would lie about her being my friend,” she says in frustration. I shrug.

“I was just making sure.”

“How do you know Selena anyway?”

“She’s...” I hesitate because I really don’t know how to explain.

“I’ll just ask her myself,” Alex says before walking away and heading into the hospital room. I can only hope Joseph’s dick isn’t out anymore. I snicker to myself. Today has been nothing but eventful.

I can’t help feeling that my life is about to get extremely complicated. Selena and Alex know each other. Selena can’t seem to ever stay out of trouble, which means Alex will be worse. I haven’t seen her in more than 15 years but I think she’s about to rock my world. And not in a good way.

I leave the hospital and head back to the Reagents headquarters, which is a huge mansion with every state-of-the-art equipment we could need, as well as security that’s tighter than Fort Knox. Security that I created.
