Prologue

Prologue

Falling in love takes up a lot of time, effort and courage. I learned that first hand. Experience is the best teacher, no doubt about it. I was careless. Too reckless to even consider the consequences. I wish I listened to what they said. Not regretting.

But here I am, trying to forget the colorful flashbacks that came with his betrayal. Things that just remind me of him brings out the beast within. He was the light in my life that turned dim until it was nothing but smoke. Total darkness occupied my heart for what seemed like forever.

I have loved him ever since, trusting him to the brink where I’d forget everything and follow his every word without complain. If he snaps, I’ll follow him over that edge. Surrendering your will to follow the person who’ll lead you to success and in the end, your destruction. Fairytales make every child’s mind believe that everything about life is simple. That love are all about roses, rainbows and hugs.

A total lie.

Nothing in this world are all rainbows and flying horses.

But...

I couldn’t help wonder, what would my life be if it didn’t go downhill. That our lives intertwined was perfect. If he didn’t think that I wasn’t good enough anymore. A burden. An annoying old swing, which he loved back in the old days, now rusted that he got to throw away. Replacing it with a new and beautiful one. One that he wouldn’t be shy to show off to the world.

Here is the truth...

The man who I call my husband, is a monster.

serginemuzac: This book had me dieing😂😂😂 It was super lit and I was reading it for the whole day. Its really interesting and I couldnt put my phone down until I finished all 22 chapters! Even though the grammer was a bit off (I actually enjoyed it, it made everything funnier) I really liked it.

Katy Rayne: i really enjoyed this book. i have to say i didn't know what to expect, but with every chapter that came something crucial to keep you reading happened. I was disappointed with the ending if this is for another book i will defiantly carry on reading the next book.

263Adder: Okay so I adore this story. I only knocked one star off plot for historical inaccuracies because I'm a bit of a stickler for that. The ending broke my heart though, considering you already changed history couldn't you (SPOILER) change it a bit more and have them together!!!! I want an alternative...
