"He broke down all the walls I had around my heart without me even noticing."
Protecting my heart was the only way...
After the childhood I survived, I built a wall and locked it away.
I would never let anyone in. Never let anyone close enough to take more than I was willing to give.
Starting over in a new town is hard, but running from my past left me no choice.
I was desperate to say goodbye to the memories that held me captive. The pain I've experienced is more than anyone should have to bear.
Then I met him...
He takes my breath away. I can't ignore the way he makes me feel. I know he has the power to destroy me.
And that's what scares me the most.
