I am loyal, but I will betray you.
I am strong, but I have scars.
I am an angel, but the devil.
I met her when I was sixteen and she was a breath of fresh air. She swooped in, making me smile. But then she left, taking my next breath with her.
Her smile could light up a room, making my black heart pitter patter.
I found her again ten years later, with a syringe in her arm.
Blood coming from between her legs.
She was broken and I was glad she was broken. She wouldn't think less of me and my damaged ways.

“They say I bring nothing but black, darkness. Though, when I’m with you, all I see is color, and fuck, its the best thing I’ve ever seen, Rose”
Black doesn’t feel. He is hired to take care of things, to people who have served their purpose whether they are aware of it or not. The one time that could have impacted his life, she had disappeared. Years later, he finds her amidst drugs and ruin. He brings her back to his world to save her eve though in his mind he doesn’t understand what he is doing. Once she is healing he sends her off, not wanting anything to do with her. But he cannot stay away from her no matter how hard he tries.
“She makes me feel things, makes my heart pitter patter when I thought there wasn’t a heart there that could do that. She’s unusual and unique. Strange, but beautiful.”
Rose now remembers who he is and does everything she can to have him in her life.
“I see a man, a man who cares, even when he shouldn’t. A man who’s broken, but will fix others. A man that hides in all his blackness, even taking the name to seem deadlier, which I’m sure he doesn’t need.”
They both have secrets and what will happen when that comes to light?
Its an interesting read that had me from the get go. I liked their chemistry, both giving alot of depth to the past and present.
My only complaint is that I thought it ended quickly, that it was rushed. Did it take away from the story? Naw, but just wish it had all happened at a slower pace.
I cant wait to see what happens next!
