She was only supposed to be a job, but now I can't seem to walk away.
Fighting is all I've ever done. I've fought for my father, my brothers. I've fought for money or just for the thrill of it but now I have a new reason to fight. I must fight to keep Ava safe only this time it's not with my fists.
I'm broke, working a dead end job while hiding from my abusive ex. So yeah life isn't great right now, that is until Connor. He arrives at the bar I'm working at, strikes up a conversation and I'm hooked.
I'm hooked because he's awkward and there's darkness in him that I'm drawn to. Yet it's also the reason that I know I should stay away.
