She was the girl in a faded photo I’ve carried in my pocket for three long years.

My best friend’s sister.

I made him a promise on the battlefield that I intended to keep.

Until I met her.

An angel on a dance floor in a shimmery gold dress.

Our worlds crashed together into one incredible night of heat.

Now I’ve screwed up everything.

How could I have known she was the girl I swore to protect?
