I never wanted a girl like Sienna in my life. I never wanted a girl to embed herself into my soul so deep just trying to forget about her felt worse than slicing layers of skin off. I never wanted to feel like this. For anyone. But I had her and I fucking let her go. I let her go, and she filled the void. A void I’ve never been able to fill. Not in the ten years since I created it. I’ve tried my hardest, but nothing I do makes the hole feel any less painful. But now she’s here. In my city. In my shop. And I’ve been handed my second chance on a silver platter. I’ll show her what she’s missing. I’ll show her exactly why I’m the only guy for her. And then I’ll make her hurt.
