He quickly stood up, disbelief written on his face. "Angel, I-" He didn't get to finish because I quickly threw my hands around his torso and hugged him. The side of my head rested just a little under his chest and I could clearly hear his erratic heartbeat. Despite it being so loud and fast, it was calming. So calming that I could fall alseep listening to it any time. In a matter of seconds, he hugged me back. Strongly, protectively caging me in his arms. And the whole world stopped. There was just us. And in this moment, I realized something. Something I didn't want to admit to myself, something I've been trying to keep buried deep inside me. I was slowly falling in love with him. And I was falling hard. •••• Isabella Lightwood. The definition of innocence. She's your typical 17 year old good and nice girl. Shy bookworm, perfect grades, doesn't party, and all that jazz. She loves helping others and is kind to all, so naturally it would seem that everyone would love her. Yet she remains almost invisible to most, choosing to try to blend in as much as possible, never standing out. Leon Black. 19 years old. The definition of danger. He's the most feared guy in Bella's town and all over the world too. He has it all - money, good looks, power, you name it. People are scared of him because of his dark appearance and ruthless behaviour. He's been trying to keep a low profile, not wanting to deal with any unwanted attention, but a short, golden-haired girl who's as sweet as honey might just ruin all his plans... Isabella is sure Leon is a cruel and heartless man. But is he really? What will happen when these two opposites cross paths? Well, one thing is for sure... Sparks will fly and nothing will remain the same. *** IT'S NOT THAT CLICHÉ, IT GETS BETTER!
