Kylie & Nikolas
(Rose of Thorne 3.5)
Secrets. There are many different reasons for having secrets. Sometimes we choose to keep them to protect people, while other times, they are kept out of deceit and shame. Regardless of their purpose, secrets have the power to hurt us like nothing else. When we risk losing someone we love, we will stop at nothing to prevent the truth from ever being known. But sometimes, secrets find their way out onto the open, revealing themselves even against our desperate attempts to keep them hidden. My secret had almost destroyed us, but through the miracle of three little words, “I forgive you,” Skylar had finally set me free from my years of torment. Part of her died the night she lost her parents. No matter what I do, I can never get that part of her back again. Through the tragedy of that night, our lives are forever scarred, yet through our powerful love, I see her once again returning back to life, just like a perfect rose in bloom. Now that she knows my secret, there is nothing that can ever tear us apart again… or so, I had thought.
