The repercussions of her fight for control could mean the difference between life or death.
“Shock and disbelief morphed across his face as his words failed to find their way out. My brother knew how I felt about this, so did Daniel. I was with him because he understood at least a part of my fear. I wanted to go to the hospital and confront him. Scream at him until he woke up and gave me my answers.

Shaking my head, I pictured the real Erin holding her baby, so fragile and innocent. Love and joy in her eyes. I was not as good as her, my heart had become cold and my soul darkened by this life. I had nothing to offer and in that moment I didn’t even want to try.
Adam took a deep breath, “If it is true, promise me you won’t let her handle this for you?”
“I tried to be friends with her, to stay close in case you came back. Erin trusts no one. She was lonely and kinda sad the last few times I saw her.”

“Why?” He let me talk.
“She is the one who likes to hang out at bars and drink and party. Erin is the one who talks to people.”
