Lily Stone is an average young female with a need for something. That’s when she comes across an agency called Loan Some. There, she is paid to participate in various events and just be there for show. Maybe this is the change she secretly needs in her life. Or maybe not. At her time in the agency, she is faced with romance, drama, and fear. She wants some change in her life, but maybe this will be too much for her to handle. Never know unless you try, right? Previously… Lily opened a little box, which was a gas trap, causing her to pass out. When Lily awoke, she was bound to a chair. Isabelle was the first person she saw and revealed she was the one who had called Lily the night before. Isabelle held a knife to Lily’s throat, threatening to kill her when Nicholas intervened. Nicholas then took Lily to another room, with plans to rape her. Lily tried to fight, but Nicholas was stronger and the effects of the drugs were making her too weak. Nicholas kissed Lily and she bit his lip, causing it to bleed. Nicholas was on top of Lily when, from the other side of the door, they heard a loud bang. The readers voted that a loud scream would come next.
Nicholas turned his head toward the door. The bang was loud and echoed throughout the building. Next thing Lily knew there was a loud scream. That sounded like Isabelle, Lily thought, as she was trying to stay calm and think of a plan of attack.
“Isabelle!” Nicholas yelled. He turned back to Lily and slapped her hard across the face. Lily felt dazed from the impact. Nicholas then got up off of Lily and moved to the door. He left the room, and no sooner did he leave that Lily was on her feet. Her jaw hurt from the slap, and she could feel an instant bruise on her face. There was no time for that, though; she had to regain her composure and get out. Lily ran to the door and flung it open.
Staying in the shadows, Lily hid behind some very large boxes. Only then did she realize that she was in a warehouse. Great. What now? Lily thought, but then she heard Nicholas.
“How dare you!” He sounded angry. Lily poked her head around the boxes and saw Isabelle’s body sprawled out on the cold, hard ground, a knife still in her hand as her body lay motionless.
She’s dead. Lily sucked in a shocking breath, which seemed to echo, causing Nicholas to look in her direction. Nicholas grabbed the knife out of Isabelle’s hand and ran for Lily. She tried to run, but Nicholas was faster. He caught her by the wrist, twisted it behind her back, and put the knife to her throat.
“Please stop this,” Lily said while trying not to cry.
“Shut up!” He yelled into her ear. Lily noticed he was looking into the shadows. “Come out of there. Or this will be the last you see of Lily. Now!”
Lily looked to the shadows, where Damen slipped out. Lily couldn’t help her tears from flowing when she saw him.
“Damen!” Lily felt the sharp steel go deeper into her neck, causing her to no longer be able to speak.
“That’s right,” Nicholas said into Lily’s ear, but his eyes stayed on Damen. “Your rescuer has come to save you. Always seeming to be there when I have you.”
“Let her go, Nicholas. It’s over. I have already called the police.”
“Is that so? Well then. I guess I don’t have much time. I’ll just kill both of you and make my way to another town.”
Lily let out a cry of pain as the knife to her throat pierced into a bit of skin. Lily closed her eyes. So this is how I am going to die?
Just then a sudden shot rang out. Bang!
Lily opened her eyes as the knife fell to the floor. Lily heard sirens from police cars. Nicholas’s body collapsed, lifeless. Damen came over and guided Lily away from the warehouse. Cops rushed past them both and into the building.
Eventually, Lily was bandaged up and the cops released them both. Damen took Lily home. They were both sitting on the couch, quiet for what seemed like hours. Lily finally spoke.
“Damen. What happened? Why did you kill Isabelle, and how did you know where I was?”
Damen sighed. “Well, I found out that Isabelle and Nicholas were siblings. Just separated at birth. I don’t know how they were brought back to each other, but Isabelle led me right to you. I followed her from your house. When I saw Nicholas take you into the other room, I lost my cool and found Isabelle. She told me that she was doing this to prove her love to me. When I told her that I didn’t want her love, she went insane and tried to kill me with a knife. That’s when I killed her, and then you know the rest.”
“So you really do care about me?”
Damen got down on his knees in front of Lily and looked her straight in the eyes. “Yes, I do. I don’t know the exact reason behind it all, but I know from my heart that I want to be with you.”
Lily took Damen’s hands and said something she was holding in for a long while.
“I love you.”
Damen reached up and held Lily’s face in his gentle hands. He kissed her with such a loving feeling. When they finally pulled apart, Damen looked at Lily. “And I fell in love with you the moment I saved you from that fall at Zombie Con. Not only did I save you, but you saved me as well. I love you, Lily Stone.”
They both smiled and hugged each other tightly. It was right then and there that Lily knew her life was changing for the better. As long as she had Damen by her side, she could get through anything that came her way.
