He taught me to kill. Murder is in my blood now. It runs through my veins and though I hide the monster I see in the mirror with ink, it doesn’t keep him from coming out.
My street name is Mercy, but I never show any. Except for her. I watch Becca, though she doesn’t know. She saved me a long time ago; the day my father killed my mother. Her bravery turned her into a target.
My father holds a grudge and knife with the same proficiency, and Becca is the focus of his hatred. And I’m the only monster who can save her.
I need to keep you safe, because your bravery kept me alive.
Never judge a book by it’s cover. Never judge a man by his ink. This man has a lot of ink, and is a whole lot of broken. Mercy by Debra Anastasia is gritty story about actions and repercussions. A tale about the things we tell ourselves, and how we deal with our demons. A story about an undying love, and acceptance of not only each other, but ourselves.
Fenix “Mercy” isn’t a good man. He’s been in love with Rebecca “Becca” since he was a child, except she has no idea. An unconventional love story with a slow build, takes your heart through all of the emotions. There was something about Nix for me, something about him called to me and I fell for him. It’s no secret I love a broken hero, and this one hit me hard. I was all over the place with him emotionally, and my heart broke for him on so many levels. The abuse may have been at the hand of his father to begin with, but it continued to be self inflicted. His absolution coming in the form of a waitress with a penchant for stuffed animals, and sometimes, your guardian angel isn’t an angel at all.
Sweet girl, I’m covered in ink. I’m broken. Things happened to make me this way. I have trouble being with myself, so I can’t imagine that anyone else would want to spend time here.
He taught me to kill. And I’ll kill for her.
