They thought they had everything figured out, but the one thing they didn’t plan for was me.
One minute and ten seconds . . .
Without life. Without a heartbeat. Without breath. Without thought.
That’s how long I was able to abandon my heartache before the doctors were able to revive me.
I know I should’ve been thankful for the miracle because not many people get to experience death and live to tell about it. Yet, as I laid in a sterile hospital room, reliving the moment I became a martyr for the woman who no longer wanted me, who returned her heart to the hands of her last love, my heart felt the weight of some brutal truths…I’d lost my girl, my mobility, and my life.
I failed to swallow this bitter pill of my new reality and was left alone to wallow in what could’ve been. I took it out on the people unlucky enough to have to care for me—including the beautiful blonde with chocolate brown eyes, wearing scrubs and a smile that helped me forget the pain that put me there.
But I left her ten months ago, and I didn’t expect to see her again. At the same mall. About thirty feet away. With a man’s arm wrapped around her neck, restraining her.
And he’s not alone.
His men have taken everyone hostage, he’s holding her for ransom, and no one is getting out alive unless I risk it all again.
