I suspected that Nicholas Greene had a secret, but I never expected it to be this. He went past the point of being an introvert; like myself, he seemed to have no friends. Never letting anyone in. He was hiding something. But I would never have guessed that it was something as morbid as what I found out. And strangely, I found that it didn’t really change how I saw him, or what I felt for him. Even after knowing, I wanted him just as much. Warning: this book is rated M for mature. It has themes of self harm, depression, other mental illnesses, and it contains a lot of sexual content, and themes of BDSM. © Aliyah Ezinma 2017. All Rights Reserved.

Looking back, I don't think I've ever been truly happy. I've had fleeting moments of joy from certain experiences, but it never really stayed. My life is a cycle of me swinging between dysthymia and severe depression, paranoia and anxiety, all feeding from and off of each other, and it doesn't seem to be getting any better. I sometimes worry that I'll end up like my mother, slicing open my skin and hoping that no one sees the bloody tissue or razor blades in the bathroom bin. I hope it doesn't get to that stage, though.

I've learned to isolate myself, but I do fear that one day, it will come to an end, that I will let someone in, only to hurt them, and for them to break me in return.
