I’m done with my old ways.
No more bar fights, making enemies, or saying goodbye to friends who got caught in the crossfire of our dangerous lifestyle. Things are better.
But it’s impossible for it to stay that way for long.
I’m not that lucky.
Evangeline Snow is the girl from my past who I didn’t deserve. Her father made sure I knew that. But now, seven years later, after running into each other by happenstance, it’s like no time has passed. We’re both stronger people and we know what we want.
Nothing has changed for me. I want her.
The question is whether or not she’s willing to stand her ground and stay by me or choose her father and her own reputation over what we have.
I won’t blame her if she chooses the safe route.
I am the road less travelled.
And trouble will inevitably find its way back to me one way or another.
It always does.
