“His eyes drift back to my exposed leg. I grab my clutch, and pull it to my center like a shield. Somehow my three-inch by four-inch purse is supposed to cover and protect me.”
“I’m a wolf in sheep’s clothing, Katarina.” He addresses me with a serious look in his eyes and a warning in his voice.”

About two months ago, you told me that I was loveable and worthy. I didn’t agree. I still don’t think that I am worthy of your love, but I want it. I need it.”
