I didn’t feel threatened by his presence. I didn’t feel scared or worried… and I’d been nothing but for the last two years. I could tell someone had hurt her. I could see she was trying to fly under the radar, to go unnoticed. I’d been around women that shared similar fates too much in my life not to have seen that look on her face. But I saw her, I noticed. It was like a siren’s call. How could I resist her, from the first day she stepped into my office? …that’s when everything changed. Someone had hurt her, and that, in turn, made me want to hurt that someone. If she'll just let me in enough to tell me who it was… When I find them, there'll be hell to pay. I had to make her mine… my Jessica. Mine to keep safe. Mine to protect. Mine to love, to show her what a real man is like. Mine to cherish.
