When I was nine years old, my father severely abused my mother, leaving her in the hospital for a week. I was taken away from my home and placed in foster care for the first time that day. Twenty other children, all of whom had similar tales, shared the house where I stayed. The shell-shocked first-timers and the seasoned veterans were the two categories into which we instinctively divided ourselves.

Chapter 1
My parents yelling at each other is one of my earliest memories. I think my age was three. Because the memory is old and dusty, all I can remember are the loud voices and how much they scared me.I didn't even blink because I was so accustomed to hearing their arguments by the time I was six.When I was nine years old, my father severely abused my mother, leaving her in the hospital for a week. I was taken away from my home and placed in foster care for the first time that day. Twenty other children, all of whom had similar tales, shared the house where I stayed. The shell-shocked first-timers and the seasoned veterans were the two categories into which we instinctively divided ourselves.The courts returned me to my mother after two weeks, and we moved back into our home.

She moved in the direction of the other lady. "Miss Victoria Wilson is here. She is the Sterling Foundation's spokesperson,” she exclaimed excitedly.Miss Wilson gave me a slight nod as I looked at her.The Sterling Foundation is an organization that doesn't make money. Mrs. Barrie concluded, "Occasionally they choose a child to sponsor and then pay for all of that child's needs, including college tuition."As I turned to look at Aunt Calaris, I creased my brow. Therefore, which child did they select? I inquired.She responded, "Why you, Katherine." They selected you.“Me?” I exhaled.The first time Miss Wilson spoke, she did so in a soft but firm voice."Can you be ready to leave in an hour? We have a private jet waiting at the airport." She inquired."One hour?" With widening eyes, I repeated.I was ill. I was not prepared for this. I had hoped for a long time that I would be able to live with real family, but now that it was here, I wanted to wish it away. I turned to look at Miss

Chapter 3
The stone driveway was being traversed by a tall man with dark hair. He crossed under my window, stopped abruptly, and I watched as he stood still. I looked around to see what had caused him to stop and leaned forward until my forehead was pressed against the cool glass. I saw nothing, so I turned my attention back to him. He was glaring up at me, and when he saw me looking back, his eyes became so small that they were barely visible. I felt exposed as soon as a chill touched my skin, but I couldn't move or stop staring.He was young, probably in his early twenties, but the way he held himself and his eyes made him look years older. With a few loose wisps falling across his brow, his thick black hair was pulled away from his face. Even though he was wearing jeans and a dark coat, I could still tell that underneath he was muscular.Although I had seen some of the most beautiful faces I had ever seen, it was his eyes that caught my attention. His face was attractive. They were a strange

I had initially been excited by the idea of an indoor pool, but the strict rules made me silently sigh inside. I had the impression that there would be a long list of rules attached to anything I did."Katherine, ride or not?" Miss Wilson demanded with impatience.“Huh?” I said it as soon as I realized she was talking to me once more and snapped out of my thoughts."I'm talking about horses; do you ride?"She re-asked."No, I don't," I reply.You will then begin lessons this week. I'll see you after lunch, so I'll excuse you for the time being.I was unsure of what to do or where to go as I stood there. I didn't say anything, and I didn't want to break any rules. I was saved when Jesse stepped in.She informed me, "Katherine, if you wish, I can take you shopping for clothes."I told her I was ready to leave now and gave her a smile of appreciation. She took my arm as we walked across the stone driveway to the garage and out the door. I thought I could finally unwind and let my guard do

I declined and thanked her despite my desire for another slice of her moist cake. Before going to bed, I had other plans that included reading the books I had seen earlier.I strolled into the library and flipped on the light switch. A dozen recessed lights instantly illuminated the bookshelves. I also turned on a banker's lamp by going over to one of the tables in the middle of the room.There were a plethora of books; I didn't know where to begin. As I stood there, I tried to slowly introduce myself to each of them by turning around. Finally, I settled on a section that looked like it contained some older books. As my fingertips brushed the supple leather, I walked over and began reading the titles. Most of them were poetry collections. Although I enjoyed poetry, I was looking for something that would keep me occupied for a longer period of time.The following section appeared to primarily contain historical texts. When I took one out, I discovered that it was about the Russian revolu

I took the bowl with a slight trembling in my hands as he held it out to me. He just stood there and stared down at me. I could see how much taller he was than me now that he was closer. He was six inches ahead of me, despite the fact that I was tall for my age.I gazed toward his face, into those odd blue eyes. They continued to shine in the dim light, but the blue now appeared much darker.I wanted to inquire about his identity, hometown, and name. But I couldn't speak, so I just stood there and stared.I was astonished by his beauty, which was even more striking now that he was so close. His skin appeared as fair and flawless in the dim light as it had in the morning sun. His nose was perfectly straight and had full lips. I was, however, captivated by his eyes. They were both inviting and dangerous at the same time, their long, black lashes barely concealing that eerie glow.His age was still a mystery to me.I assumed he was in his early twenties from his features, but his expressio
