Wow! We’re getting closer and closer to release day! Here’s another #StarkOnSaturday to enjoy as we continue the countdown to Complete Me, book three in the Stark Trilogy that began with with Release Me, continued with Claim Me, and will conclude with Complete Me!
And remember, there’s still time to enter the fabulous Stark Trilogy/iPad contest!
Enjoy! (FYI, I edited this to leave out “her” name…can’t have spoilers, after all!)
Despite my bliss, her words come back to me, and I cannot help but be struck by how they mirror my earlier dark thoughts. That once reality pokes it’s head in, things start spiraling out of control.
“What is it?” Damien asks, his eyes intent upon my face.
I do not want to bring a dark cloud between us, but I also don’t want to hide my fears from Damien. Not when I know that he is the only one capable of soothing them.
“Stupid stuff,” I say. “I was thinking about what she said. About reality.”
“She’s a cold bitch. And the only reality I know is you. Don’t tell me you doubt that.”
“I don’t,” I say emphatically. “But Damien, all the noise outside of us. I don’t want to feel like we’re living in a fantasy bubble, but sometimes I think that we are, and that reality keeps trying to break through. The trial. Stalker mail and texts. The press. And now your old girlfriends.”
“Fuck them,” he says.
“Damien, I’m serious.”
“So am I,” he says, his expression as intense as I have ever seen it. “At the end of the day, it’s just you and me. We make our own reality, Nikki. And no one can take it from us.”
