I was his gift. He was my downfall.

They say your parents are the two people who are meant to love you and keep you safe.
So what does that say about mine?
My father gave me to a man as a gift.
A man who wears many masks.
A man who terrifies me.
Why then do I want to know what lies beneath?
Why does a single touch send shivers down my spine?
I know what he wants.
My body. My words. My mind.
I can’t run. I can’t hide. And I can’t give in to him.
My name is Liora Stewart.
And Dante Benson is my Master.
