EXCERPT

I don’t have a place for her in my basement apartment. She deserves a fluffy bed with a mountain of pillows after what she’s been through. All I have is darkness, four walls, and a cot. Everything is hard. Spartan. I grew up with even less; I see no need for pointless luxuries now.


Survival matters more than anything. She needs fluids and sleep. I set her on my cot and wrap her in a rough blanket.


“I’m Micah. What’s your name?”


Her eyes are wide. “Whatever you want it to be.”


“I know.” This is the life she chose. One of servitude and pain. I can give her what she desires. “I’ve asked you a question, and you will answer it. You had a name once. Tell me now.”


Tears well up in her eyes. “I’m sorry. I don’t remember.”


“We’ll work on that, angel.”


Panic flickers across her face, and she pulls the rough blanket tight around her. “Please don’t call me angel. It’s wrong.”


A gruff laugh catches in my throat. What is wrong? A monster calling his new slave angel? A man making himself a god? A broken doll who can’t see her own shine? “That’s not how this works. You don’t decide things. That’s my job. I’m going to take care of you now. I’m going to give you everything you need.”


“You’re going to hurt me.”


There’s a sadness in her voice, a vulnerability that strips me to the quick, and I know she means something more by that than the twisted sex we both crave. Smart girl. “Of course I am. What shall I call you while I do it? What name do you want on my lips while I destroy you?”


I don’t tell her that I think I’m going to destroy us both.
