"I love you, Max Butcher."
Those words are dangerous. Just about as dangerous as the world I was born into. As dangerous as the ruthless bastards that I call family.
They hurt her. My little ballerina. My piece of purity. I wanted to keep the world beautiful for her. I failed.
So I should let her go. For her own safety and my sanity. But she crawled into my bed...and settled in my head.
Her sweet-talking mouth says those dangerous words. Words I didn't know that I craved. She waits for me at night. Accepts the darkness around me. Now that's not something a man just lets go of.
I'm a selfish bastard too. And she's mine.
I'll protect her; it's an eye for an eye and I'm willing to blind the whole damn lot of them. For her, I'll start a damn war.
