And as he drives into me so hard that my back slides against the wall, I watch his face while memories pour through me, little snippets in time where he is suddenly there...watching. Waiting. Building his complicated web that will eventually ensnare me.
“I need to be the fire that roars to life inside her, need to be the shadow that she reaches for every time she closes her eyes.”
“She doesn’t need a hero to swoop in and save her, she needs a villain who drags out the hero she has within herself.”
"She doesn’t need a hero to swoop in and save her, she needs a villain who drags out the hero she has within herself. I’m happy to oblige."
"Tell me you don’t want me now. I dare you, Adeline. Try to convince me you don’t want my fingers inside you, that you don’t want me to shove you down so I can take the first taste of this greedy little cunt."
"I’ve been the silent specter that counts the boys and men she’s stumbled through without concern for her reputation. Thirteen, not that I’m counting, and if you judge her for it, I’ll gut you and laugh while you scream."
"Just so you know, she did look beautiful with my cock in her mouth. It took her a little bit to adjust to the size, but that’s to be expected after the disappointment you had to offer."
"It's never the dangers that lurk in the shadows you have to worry about, it's the ones you know. The people who can turn your world upside down without any effort at all. The terrifying monsters that sneak up when you least expect it to steal your heart and drive you insane."
"I will have you in the end. I will keep you. I will own you because I’ve been the shadow protecting you all these years from all the other pricks who only wanted to destroy you."

”It’s always been us. The little monster and the shadow that watches her.”
“She’s a free spirit, a beam of light that manages to slice its way through the dark landscape of my careful life.”
“I was nothing but a ghost, an unseen force that guided his hand.”
Ari isn't just playing a game, I realize. He designed the board, carved the pieces and painted the dots on the dice.
It wasn't good enough to linger in my world without my knowing it, he had to drag me kicking and screaming into his.
It's never the dangers that lurk in the shadows you have to worry about, it's the ones you know. The people who can turn your world upside down without any effort at all. The terrifying monsters that sneak up when you least expect it to steal your heart and drive you insane.
