“First Line Fridays” is by Hoarding Books and is all about the first line of a current/upcoming read. Friday 56 is a meme hosted by Freda’s Voice, where you turn to page 56 (or 56%) in what you’re reading a find a snippet that jumps out at you. The idea to combine the two came from Kat @ Here There Be Dragons“
I found this meme on The Writerly Way. And I’m doing this on a Thursday just to be difficult.
SILVER CARVED their names into my back, one by one.
My brothers and my mother.

THE DEVIL CAME CALLING on a particularly beautiful Sunday afternoon. The sky had been blue the day I promised myself to him as well, even though the horrors the moon beheld that night chased away any beauty it held. In his mind, it didn’t matter that I had been brainwashed or that he had taken everything from me and given me only himself to cling to. A promise was a promise, and my debt was coming due
My purpose, carved deeper into my soul than their names carved in my flesh.
The man who took everything from me, my own personal devil in shifting flesh.
My pack. The high-born family of wolves I’ve sworn my life to protect, even if my dying breath is pledged to another.
My everything. Friend, confidant, enemy, lover. Most dangerous of all, he would become the reason I lived if I let him. He is the one thing I won’t allow Dominic to take from me. Love is not a luxury I can afford, but the sweetness of revenge has nothing on the taste of him…
