“Even if he doesn’t want to be with me, he will always be one of the best things to ever happen to me.”

We weren’t just young, we were stupid and reckless.

He was the beginning of every bad decision I made, the enemy of everyone I’d ever loved.

I was a pawn in his game. A prize to be claimed, and a trophy to be flaunted.

Now we’re two adults with crooked pasts, trying to straighten out our future.

Neither of us believe in happily ever after. Not after everything we’ve been through.

So, why are we desperately trying to chase ours?

Rectify is Sasha’s story and I thought that was one character that would never come back from my metaphorical grave in my head.  She did. Somehow. She may still have one foot in the grave for all the shit she pulled in the past. Okay, maybe one toe. But Sasha and Jay make it work.  And somehow I kind of liked them.
