Naz and Karissa’s relationship is not in a good place because of certain truths that have been revealed. Karissa is no longer naive to Naz’s world. This world was created long before Karissa was born and because of past situations she has become inadvertently part of his world.
Naz is not a good man. He knows that and his family knows that but Karissa wrestles with the idea that inside of him is a decent human being. Unfortunately, his past haunts him and leaves him cold and unfeeling except to the one person who has brought light into his world.
THREE THINGS TO REMEMBER:
•Regardless of if you were there or not, the day happened. There’s a lesson to be learned there, you know. Life goes on without you.
•“Never trust someone who only ever smiles at you.”
I’m going to remember that next time I meet someone who ONLY ever smiles at me. Kind of creepy when you think about it. Wonder what the person is smiling about that they don’t take an interest enough to speak to you. *lol*
•“It’s a little trick I learned. Whenever a situation makes you nervous, suck on a piece of hard candy. It’s psychological. Your brain thinks if you were in any real danger, you wouldn’t be eating something, so it reasons that you’re perfectly fine.”
Yep, I’m totally trying this to see if it works. *fingers crossed* it works.

Don’t say it unless you mean it…
It’s a simple concept, one I’ve said time and again, but something people don’t seem to comprehend. You should choose every syllable carefully, because you never know when somebody will hold you to your word.
Somebody like me.
I’m not a good man. I’m not. I know. I have enough darkness inside of me to rid the world of every stitch of light. But there’s one I could never harm, one light I couldn’t bring myself to snuff out.
She thinks I’m a monster, and maybe I am. I taunt her with my touch, get a thrill out of torturing her soul. But I’m not the only one. The world is full of monsters, and I’m not the most dangerous one out there.
Not even close…
God help me, I love her.
And God help anyone who tries to take her from me.
