I broke my
promise the minute I saw her.

Not in the
way you probably think, though. It wasn’t a promise to take care of her because
it was love at first sight. It was a promise to let her know, to let her know
just what happened…

Yes, she was
beautiful, perfect really, but what I saw made her ugly. So, I broke my promise
because she didn’t deserve to know.

And then I
took her because she deserved to suffer the way I had—emotionally. Alone even
when surrounded by people. Lonesome for eternity.

She’d be my
wife so she could live beside me, never finding love but only the indifference
and hate I bestowed upon her. Who would want that kind of life by choice? Who
would want to shackle themselves to a scarred man—both physically and mentally?
I didn’t give her a choice. I gave her an ultimatum, and she couldn’t refuse. And
I vowed she’d live a lonely life with a husband right beside her.

That’s the
thing about vows … Sometimes, they are broken. And promises? Sometimes, you
manage to keep them even when you don’t want to.


DC Renee has been writing all her life, from cheesy poems in elementary school
(i'll share an example just so you know how cheesy: Flowers are my favorite
thing; they usually bloom during spring. Pink, blue, yellow and green, so many
colors that I have seen...etc.) to short stories and monologues, and eventually
fan fictions for Days of Our Lives.

It was thanks to that superbly encouraging fan fiction community that DC found
the courage to publish her first book - Let Me Go. It held fast in the top 100
Best Selling Contemporary Romance Fiction Novels on Amazon for over a month,
going as low as the top 20's. Naturally, she loves to read, but she also likes
watching hockey, dancing for fun, and loves her family.
