The man I married became a monster.
I was too afraid to run but more afraid to stay.
Then I met Malik, a retired MMA championship fighter with mesmerizing hazel eyes.
He kept me safe and hidden away from the life I knew.
I didn’t think I could ever feel again. I’d forgotten how to love. Then Malik showed me what life could be like without fear consuming me.
As each day passes, I realize we’re both in danger until we can rid our lives of the monster for good.
Maybe I should’ve stayed, but I want to survive.
