This book has wrapped. The end. Now to get proofing. 😀
I’d won independence from my past. Severed the only tie I’d ever wanted, to the only male I’d ever loved. I curled tight, rocked against the frigid planks. I couldn’t move. Minutes passed. I counted them by the frantic thump in my ears. Strange how steady my heart beat long after it was broken.
