The first night...
I rescued her from an attack in the seedy underground of New York City.
The second night...
She told me the first of many lies.
She thinks she can keep me out of her world, but she's in over her head and needs a protector. Watching her, being near her, it gives breath to something dark inside me. Something primal and forbidden. Forbidden to me.
Because in six months, I'll be a priest.
And she complicates things.
