EXCERPT from FIRE, book 2 in BEYOND TRILOGY

CLAIRE
Drama seems to be my middle name. I had it following me all my life. My childhood was a happy one, my parents loved me, my high school friends adored me. I was a shy girl, but I had wit and they loved it. Then came the first blow: Christian’s death.

He was seventeen. He had the beautiful girls on his arm and the great boys as his friends. He was dynamic and popular. Everything I wasn’t. But he was also my brother and I loved him. He protected me and made me want to be like him.

I remember my whole past as it was yesterday. No matter how much I want to escape it, the images are vivid in my mind. The police officer telling my father that an accident happened. My mother sinking to the floor and crying her eyes out, me, confused and scared watching the whole scene as if it were a scene from a movie.

After that day, we changed, my parents windrowed from each other and from me. They fought a lot. They even separated for a while.
Then came the second blow, my addiction, my pregnancy, just me being something else. Not my brother.

Without me knowing it, this was what made us family again. They made peace with themselves, with the past, even with me. They were becoming more like the parents I used to know, happy, whole. Yet, again, everything I wasn’t.

I left Sebastian sleeping as I snuck out of his apartment. We spent almost a week together going through my recovery. The bruises were gone, the scars were healing. We had hard, sweaty sex and passionate moments. We found out that without sex we could still talk for hours. I finally revealed my past to someone and he didn’t run, he didn’t hide, instead he hugged me and kissed me and somehow that made me feel like the dirtiest woman on earth. I did not deserve him, not after being so weak.

It’s a very unnerving feeling, knowing that you should allow yourself to receive happiness, but still, you don’t. For reasons beyond my understanding, I feel like I could ruin Sebastian by staying with him. Since I told him my story something’s changed, I could feel it in the way he looked at me or how we made love. I can say “we made love” because he was not fucking me anymore. He was tender and seeking my pleasure more than before. And me, I have this knot in my throat all the time. I don’t deserve him, I’m not whole. I’m always afraid he will leave, whatever we have now will end. And even though I am a different person this will definitely destroy me.

So I decided to run, leave him first. And I did. I haven’t heard from him since that day, three weeks ago.
