Graysen Crowther was a young lord raised in the art of violence - a thief, a death-dealer, a spinner of deceit. An iron-fisted enforcer who ruled over the crime lords and the cartels of the world for the dark sect we were born to serve - The Horned Gods.
And I was a princess of the underworld, whose subjects weren't thieves and murderers, but stealers of souls, enders of lives.
He was an arrogant prick with a cocky smirk, and we were bound together, soon to be married. Pity neither of us desired to marry the other. Pity neither of us wanted to acknowledge the strange heightened-awareness we had of one another - something that shimmered and sparked whenever we were together.

Especially Graysen, I could never let him learn my truth.
