The same day I was offered a job in my new city, I met Elias. He was an enigma. A mystery. One that I wanted to uncover. One I didn’t know if I could trust.
He pulled me in with adventure and the melodies of his guitar, but his secrets held me at a distance. He couldn’t tell me about what he did for a living, or why he took phone calls in a different room.
Then my ex returned. Travis wove a sordid tale of danger; that he was only there to keep me safe from Elias.
I never expected truth to be nestled in his lies.
