I met him in college, and I fell in love. It was a beautiful love, pure and perfect. Max quickly became everything I could have ever wanted. He was the jock, the popular guy, and I was just Belle - but he made me so much more. He gave me everything I could have ever wanted in life. But one night, one accident changed everything. The man I thought I knew disappeared. I can't tell you the exact moment he fell out of love with me, but he did. I wish I could tell you there was hope. That I hung on. That I fought. I wish I could tell you that we fixed it. But we couldn't, and I ran. In the dead of the night, I packed my things and left him. Five years later, I have returned. He's still the same man I left behind - a deadly underground fighter for the House of Obsidian. He's still dangerous. He's still broken. I still love him. We're both holding a secret, and that secret might just change everything.
