What have I done?
After a few moments of silence, a door slammed somewhere far away in the house. Her door.
The sound jarred Lucius into motion. He followed Stella’s trail like a seasoned hunter, smooth and focused.
I wanted to stop him, to work the same violence on him that I had on Stella’s heart.
“Leave her alone, Lucius.” Though my soul was gone, my rage still burned.
He glanced over his shoulder, triumphant and vicious. “She’s mine now. I know the rules. I call the shots, and I have no intentions of ever leaving her alone.”
“I will fucking end you.” I forced myself to move and followed him into the hall.
He flipped me off and took the stairs two at a time.
“Game on, big brother.”
