Denied Chapter Thirty-four by Cia Nordwell
“Please step outside.” Captain stood in the middle of his lounge. He waited for Deke and Luca to leave.

He didn’t have the memories I did. The fear I could hurt him only grew stronger the closer we came to the central planets. “You don’t know that. Don’t make me watch it happen.” I didn’t want to become trapped inside my brain while my body moved outside of my control.

Aaron’s lips were stained with blood. So gorgeous and delicious, however, I could tell something troubled him.
