I hadn’t admitted to myself that my life was going nowhere until I first had him.
Living back in my small mountain town, in my childhood home, with my older brother, working at the library wasn’t as exciting as I imagined.
That was until a stranger came to the library one night and turned my world around.
Night after night, month after month, I waited for him after dark.
He never let me see his face but he always showed me how well he knew me. No one had ever read my needs so well or pushed me so far and I was in too deep before I even knew who he was.
I just called him Daddy.
