Alicia woke up the next morning, feeling like death warmed over. The pain of seeing Damien again had forced her to lie awake most of the night and left her in agony all over again. The way he looked had her libido in overdrive, her heart torn between loving him and wanting to hurt him the way he hurt her.
“Why can’t I just let it go?” she muttered as she got out of bed, drained of any energy and feeling pathetic. Groggily she pulled on her robe.
Shuffling off to grab a cup of coffee, she was startled to hear a knock on her door.
