Five. That’s how old I was when I picked up a ball for the very first time during flag football—something my mom had signed me up for.
Nine. That’s when I decided I’d stop at nothing until I played football at the highest level.
Fifteen. That’s when my father informed me that the only future I had was working at his private investigation firm.
Seventeen. That’s when I tried to escape the future that had been laid out for me. Tried to cut all ties that connected me to my own blood. Spoiler alert: It didn’t work. They still own me.
Eighteen. That’s when I was told if I completed this one job, I’d be cut loose. Free. I’d finally be free. It seemed easy enough.
Then, I meet her. You know, the one who makes you do all kinds of stupid, wacky stuff because you feel things you’ve never felt before. Yeah…that’s the one.
Here’s the real kicker: What happens when the girl you’ve likely already fallen in love with is the one you need to betray in order to leave behind a life you can’t stand?
Well, that’s a damn good question. I’m dying to know myself.
