What do you do when the man who you love more than anyone else in the world terrifies you? This is a question Shyla must confront and it takes her to her breaking point.
The only person who can bring her back is the same person who is capable of destroying her beyond repair.
Shyla has seen a side of Taylor she can never forget. She now understands that not only is he capable of immense tenderness, but ruthless violence. She must decide if she will fully trust Taylor and embrace both his light and darkness, as it is clear both exist equally within him.
Their pasts continue to cast a shadow over their relationship as Shyla attempts to convince Taylor that the only way they can truly embrace the future is to reopen and repair old wounds.
Taylor swears anything he has ever done was to protect Shyla, but Eric’s words haunt her and cast doubts on Taylor’s intentions.
Taylor will do anything for Shyla.
Now she must decide if that is actually good thing.
“Stop!” I scream, my heart races so fast that I think I might pass out. We come upon each turn at such a high speed that I am sure we will spin out. “You’re going to get us killed!”
“Because that’s what I felt when he had you, when I was racing back home to get you back after he told me he had you. That’s what I have felt these couple of weeks when all you do is cry. I know what you’ve been thinking, I’m not a fucking imbecile.” He shifts the gear and the engine purrs giving the car a boost of power and sending me into further panic.
“Taylor. What the fuck are you doing!” I shout.
“I want you to wake the fuck up Shyla!” He sharply turns the car into a an open field, unused farmland of sorts, and the car’s stiff suspension violently jitters underneath us.
“You’re going to break this thing!”
“I’m fucking rich, I can buy twenty of these tomorrow! Who gives a shit about a car?”
“You’re scaring me. Please stop the car.”
“Tell me you’re coming back to me!”
“I want you back. I need you back. You need to fight this!” Though he is yelling over the violent sounds of electronic music, his eyes are focused on the path in front of him. I glance forward and that’s when I see, out in the distance, a row of fences growing in size with each passing second.
“Taylor stop!” I scream at the top of my lungs.
“Tell me you’ll fight goddammit! Tell me now!” I glance again, the fences are now so close I can see the detail in the wiring. It’s only a fraction of a second, but I realize I feel so many things all at once. I don’t want to die, I don’t want to have an accident. I want to live, I want to have a life with Taylor. Despite what’s going on inside of me now, there is so much I want to live for and do. “So help me, I won’t fucking stop!”
“Yes! I’ll fight Taylor. I will fucking fight!” I scream as loudly as I can. “Now stop the fucking car!” I take one look in front of us and the fence is just thirty feet away and heading closer with each passing moment.
Immediately, Taylor downshifts and hits the breaks while spinning the wheel to turn away from the fence. Mud and debris kick up all over the car. “Ooohhh godddd!” I call out, closing my eyes as my stomach lurches up to my throat. The car spins 180 degrees and comes to a full stop facing away from the fence.
