The deal was sealed the moment she stepped onto that stage.
It was like seeing a ghost. Sunshine blonde hair, pale skin, and azure blue eyes that held a thousand secrets.
I didn’t know what caused her to end up on that auction block.
And I didn’t care either.
All I knew was that I had to have her…no matter the cost.
One-million dollars later and she became just that.
Mine to break.
Mine to use.
Mine to keep.
But we all have secrets and when I discover hers no one will be able to save her from me.

“What’s your name?” I ask after we’ve been driving for a few minutes.
“Fallon,” she whispers, almost inaudible.

“Where are you from, Fallon?”
“Sun Valley.” She doesn’t offer any more than the bare minimum.
“Have you always lived there?”
“Yes.” A second passes, and then she asks the question that dooms both of us. “What are you going to do to me?”
Gripping the steering wheel a little tighter, I grit my teeth and answer her truthfully.
“I don’t know yet.”
I just don’t fucking know…
