Every action has a consequence and this is the aftermath.
My name is Kara Petersen.
I am one of life’s survivors, but my life has not been easy.
I am the product of a dysfunctional, broken home and parents who don’t care.
Fallen from grace, abandoned and betrayed, I am now alone.
Then there was hope. A boy, a saviour. He saved me, empowered me, and gave me the strength and courage to leave.
His actions will not be in vain.
I will do whatever it takes to survive.
My name is Sloan Foster.
I am one of life’s failures, but my life has not been fair.
I am the product of a loving home, a mother and father who adored each other, until death paved the way for the devil.
Trapped inside a world with a gilded façade, I have always felt alone.
Then there was hope.
A girl, an angel, a beacon of pure light in the dark. She subconsciously called to me, reached deep into my soul, unknowingly claiming a part of myself I had let die years ago.
I promised I would do whatever it took to be her protector. My promises were unachievable and futile.
I will do whatever it takes to find her again.
Please note this is a 36,000 word novella, chronicling the lives of Kara and Sloan and the ‘missing’ eight years. It is not a continuation of the present story, and should be read after Fractured and Tormented.
