“You, Emily. You’re worth fighting for. I fought all my life, but never for anything worthwhile. Now… Now I’m fighting for my heart. Bullshit ends here and now.”
“You need to fear me, not hate me.” I did. I feared him. But I think I hated him more. No, I knew I hated him more. For what he’d done. For what he was doing. For the betrayal. Most of all, for tarnishing something so beautiful and making it ugly. I trusted him. I gave myself to him, and he took me, peeled back layers of my soul until he saw it all. Then he took me.”
“Please don’t ask me to let you go. I can’t do it. I’m not strong enough to do it again.”
“Trust is built. Ours just needs to be rebuilt and it takes time. But baby, we’ll do it together.”
“Maybe love couldn’t be forgotten. But maybe, just maybe it could be smothered by hate.”
“Baby, you’re the one who gave me the strength to survive Raul. It has always been you. It will always be you. Emily …you’re my trophy. And I lost you.”
“The guy I tried to forget. No, damn it, I did forget him. I lived every single day for two years without him. I lived. I suffered, and I breathed. Then I fought my way back and won”
“I wanted the man I fell in love with to carry me away from this place. And I wanted him to carry me away.. and then.. then I wanted to kill him.”
Love is like an avalanche. It hits hard, fast and without mercy.
At least it did for me when Sculpt, the lead singer of the rock band Tear Asunder knocked me off my feet. Literally, because he’s also a fighter, illegally of course, and he taught me how to fight. He also taught me how to love and I fell hard for him. I mean the guy could do sweet, when he wasn’t doing bossy, and I like sweet.
Then it all shattered.
I was alone and fighting to survive.
When I heard Sculpt’s voice, I thought he was there to save me.
I was wrong.
(It is highly recommended to read “With You” the novella first).
