Blood is supposed to be thicker than water, but both of our hearts were immersed in Raine.
I used to find solace in the outdoors. The cool fall wind breathed relief into the damage beneath my skin. The bruises. The cuts. The broken bones. It was the furthest place I could go to get away from my father—every time my twin brother pushed his limits. My oath to protect him required me to take the brunt of my father’s firmly clenched fist. And despite my brother’s ignorance, I never hesitated to take his place.
He was the rebel. I was the sensible one.
We were twins, only in appearance…until our shared love for the girl next door—the fiery redhead with emerald green eyes—gave us common ground. We were both willing to fight for her, yet she chose me.
She was my first kiss.
My first love.
And when I found her in bed with him, she became my first betrayal.
