Roan: He’s been waiting for a storm for years.
Well… she has finally blown into town.
He’d always been good at starting over.
That had been his job for a long time.
New country, new identity, new scumbag to track down, and bring to justice.
It was just the job.
Until, suddenly, someone made it more.
But life had plans that didn’t involve white picket fences and happily-ever-afters.
And there was no choice but to move on.
That didn’t mean ghosts of the past didn’t plague him, follow him no matter how many times he changed his name, how many places he ran to.
Eventually, he traded one world for another.
The past seemed as far behind him as it was possible.
Until one day, it was there.
She was there.
Life didn’t offer many second chances.
And he was hellbent on making things right.
Even if she didn’t want anything to do with him ever again.
“And while that life was ripped away from me quite a while ago, the reality was that working for any criminal organization (which, aside from private security – was pretty much all an ex-spook was qualified to do) involved a lot of the same aspects of life. Keeping an eye out for an enemy – from within or out – was a job that required diligence.
From what I knew – thanks to some endless conversations with the big man who was clearly concerned by my insistence that something was wrong – Reign, and the organization in general, didn’t have any current enemies.
I was quick to remind him.
That he knew of.
It was easy when you knew there was a rattler in the high grass. You kept an eye, an ear down, grabbed a shield, grabbed a shovel, and chopped the fucker’s head off.
It was different when one of the bastards snuck up, sank their fangs into your calf, and killed you before you could get an anti-venom.
The arms trade was a volatile thing. I’d watched it operate across several continents, through endless countries.
It was competitive in the best of conditions. Rarely did an organization live long enough to pass on to a second generation.”
