One was broken and delicate.
The other was callous and violent.
They hid their true selves from each other until it was no longer possible.
They both know that people are cruel.
They see what’s on the outside and never care to look past the surface.
Secrets are kept close within, and while some are never shared, others come to light bringing to bear the starkest truths.
This is the story of how the delicate girl and the violent boy began their love affair.
I knew that wishes made on stars were nothing more than just that.
I was happy before he came along.
Home was where my heart truly was, and I never wanted to feel any different.
But sometimes those wishes we make have a way of coming true.
And when I found out that a new family moved into town, that was the day everything changed.
Home wasn’t where my heart was anymore.
It was with him.

Running away has always been something I'm good at.
I've run far away from home and back again thinking that each time would be the last.
But things are a lot different lately. I've learned that tides turn, seasons change, and sometimes, people do too.
I haven't seen Hoyt Blackburn in a decade because I was so convinced he wasn't worth my time anymore. I guess this is where I've changed since I found out that his execution is one of those inevitable things that life handed him. I can't ever remember him being a bad man, yet I can't shake that something isn't right about what's happening to him.
Maybe it's because I miss him.
Maybe it's because I wanna lay eyes on the man one last time.
Will he remember me? Will he even care? I don't know; the only thing I can honestly say for sure is that there are still some secrets we have left between us that have to be spoken before he draws his last breath. Otherwise, when that day comes, they may have just killed me too.
I've always thought of myself as a damn good father.
The first three shouldn't define what you think about me. It's not my fault that they were fuck ups; I did my best with what I was given and I almost got it right.
I think I've learned enough from those mistakes to know that I'll do better this time. After all, fate has decided to bestow a beautiful baby girl on me, and she doesn't know what the others went through.
I've been doing alright with her so far. She loves me the same way she loves picking wildflowers out in the yard, but she doesn't understand that sometimes, innocent love just isn't enough.
Especially not for a man like me.
I don't tend to fail much in what I do, and I don't see the last few years as failing. I see it as learning from my missteps and becoming a better man because of it. Times are getting harder on me without someone special to warm my bed at night.
I've got another chance to do it right, and this time, I'll be the man that my little girl deserves.
To bear the burden of his … love.
A sickening feeling stirs deep inside each time he looks at me because I know what it means.
I have to follow the rules; be his good girl.
It’s the only way to survive in this house.
Being in the dark never scared me, being alone was something I used to cherish until he began to use it against me.
I just want to find the light now.
The place where I know his darkness can’t reach.
A place where maybe everything will make sense one day, but for now, I have to be strong.
I won't fall down again.
Not before I find my peace there.
I have to do it soon because I'm not sure how much more I can take.
It is highly advised to read Inferno, Cinere, and Sparks first.
I swore to myself that I would never love you.
I promised my children that they wouldn’t suffer for my sins.
But it’s so hard, Daddy.
It’s hard to not love the man that gave me life. It’s hard to not love the man that’s taken care of me the only way he knows how.
I know it’s not your fault, and maybe one day, I’ll find out why you became a monster.
While we still have time left together, I want you to know that I forgive you for everything you’ve done. I want you to know that I do love you, even if not in the way you would have hoped for.
It’s almost over, Daddy.
Close your eyes and go to sleep; I’ll be here with you, holding your hand and letting you know that everything will be alright.
Because it will be, won’t it?
That’s the promise that you made to me—that no matter what happens between us, everything will always turn out okay.
I know you don’t care much for anything you can’t control, but sometimes life folds its cards and we have to go when it’s our time.
Please stop fighting it, Daddy.
It hurts me to see you suffering so much.
I’ve done my best to take care of you, but it’s time to go.
Hurry along and know that we’ll be behind you shortly because I can’t live in a world that doesn’t have you in it.
I love you, Daddy.
Always and forever.
Sometimes, I felt like I had done right by them, but all I’ve ever had are disappointments.
I’m going to give myself one more chance to get this right now that Darby is out of the way.
Maybe they’ll listen, but I doubt it. It still doesn't change how I feel a family should be run.
And you …
You’re always so quick to believe the lies of children.
Honestly, it makes me laugh.
If what they told you makes you sleep better at night, feel free to imagine that it's true.
Anyway, let me tell you what happened before he went off to find his sister.
And if you still want to find some comfort in what he’s already said, then by all means--continue believing their lies.
They’ll fight me; I can already see it in their eyes.
But you know what they say.
You can’t keep a good man down.
It started with only one.
Every night he would sneak into my room, and every night I was left wanting more.
I’ve never known what it’s like to see, so it was easy for him to stay hidden, but when one set of hands turns into two, and eventually three, my thirst for answers becomes unbearable.
Each one of them are calculated and smart— making sure to only give me enough to keep me satisfied throughout the day before they return again in the night.
Our little game continued for months— years— before they finally revealed their identities, and although it’s all I wanted to know, now it just makes things more complicated.
