I’m toxic. She’s pure. I can’t stay away.
I saved a life by taking another. It throttled me into a vortex of endless darkness with booze and sex as my only solace.
Maria Richards brought light back into my life even through my drunken haze. For weeks, I treated her like trash. Felt guilty as hell the moment I left her bed and breakfast.
Life has a funny way of bringing back your past sins. A second chance with Maria stumbles in my path. It’s time to right my wrongs and be the man I burn to be.
