From the Author
You know who I am. The veana who refuses to be contained,refuses to be ruled, refuses to be loved. The veana who has from an early agebeen different from her kind, a cast off -- and perhaps reveled in it a littletoo much. I was taken in, true. It was a better fate than most of my mutorebrethren received. Most were thrown out like trash or killed before they couldtake another breath. But in that saving grace that was my adoption, I grew tosee the ugly truth in others.
It is a question I ask myself often: Would it have beenbetter to go the way of my mutore brothers and sisters? A quick and shallowgrave... Or was I saved for some reason? For some one?
He comes to mind, has since the day we met at the Romans',far too often and intensely. It is as though my body, my...beast, recognizes him.I have never been able to deny my beast when it scratches its desire on myunbeating heart.
But will he accept me when he knows the truth of who andwhat I am?
Will he help me, as only he can?
You're thinking I don't deserve someone like him after howI've behaved, aren't you? But understand this, I don't set out to hurt him.It's just with Gray...with whatever it is between us --fireworks, dynamite,admiration...I can't seem to let him walk out of my life.
Your selfish and Eternal Beast,
