A past she told no one.
A present she hates.
A future she doesn't want to think about.
But she does know that it involves death; a death she's looking forward to.

If the people you loved suddenly slipped from your tightened fists, what would you do?

To Gracie, the only explanation was to embrace what she tried to run away from with open arms, allowing herself to become the girl he saw her as; and now she is. She changed her lifestyle and let the sadness overwhelm her. She welcomed the fact she drives everyone away; her jagged scars the only reminder of her hopeless family and ruthless teacher.

There was a devil - a fire - sparking inside of her, growing every single day.

Blood, fear, danger.

You know nothing can be fixed, but can two broken parts make a whole?

Bann, the one who is loved by all. With the million dollar smile and the features of a god, who couldn't resist? He was sucked into something he never could foresee, forcing his heart to be pulled in two ways. With one glance into her eyes, the sadness lurking in her burning grey orbs struck him with a sudden realization; he wasn't entirely alone in this world.

And yet, when she tries to push him away, tries not to become too attached to another hopeless guy, it only draws them closer together, as he was curious of the silent girl.

The past may always be there; waiting for the right moment to attack. But, there's always a light - fire. What does fire do?

Burn. Grow even when you try to put it out. One little spark can burst into a flame.

"How about," Bann spoke up from the abyss and put his left hand on the booth, near my thigh. Lord. "We just not fight. Sounds like something worth my time."

"Honey, we're not fighting. Merely just having a conversation about cursing. Right babe?" Her pissed off husband rolled his eyes, sipping at his beverage. "See, he's all good."

All good my ass. He wants to kill you right now.

"A conversation isn't the same as arguing." Bann leaned backwards into the seat, his head hanging off the back of it. His arms were crossed and eyes shut, like something really just pulled a nerve.

Is it because I didn't say what made me left? Damn.

My finger poked Bann near the cheek but mostly on the jaw. He flinched lightly and peeked over at me. Winking, he chuckled so softly I hardly even saw it happen. Pushing him with my arm, he retaliated and pushed me back, poking me on the thigh.

"Don't start a game you can't finish." I already finished the game by making you laugh. I still smiled at him though, a smile saying 'bring it on bitch.'

For a few moments, my mind strayed from the two men eating together. From the world outside of this restaurant. Away from the 'not arguing' couple in front of me. My mind was strictly on Bann and Bann only.
