I have never trusted anyone. My whole life, I’ve known only one thing – people lie. People cheat, break promises, betray one’s trust, and never do the things they say they would do.
Until I met him.
He took me by the hand and showed me the beauty that surrounded me. He wrapped his arms around me at night and pulled me into his universe of love and trust. He never broke his promises. He promised we would marry the moment I turned eighteen and fulfilled that promise on my eighteenth birthday.
Now, holding my wrists, he said, “Now, it’s time for you to fulfill your promise. Remove your gloves. Your scars are now my scars.”
