Ezekiel has a dark past and promised his best friend he wouldn't get involved with his sister. Then he met her and everything changed.
::AN:: The beginning of this book starts in 2010. Won't necessarily make a big difference, but some things might make some more sense.

Also if anyone is interested in the music that moves me while I write here is a link for an Apple Music playlist: https://music.apple.com/us/playlist/got-a-hold-on-me/pl.u-oZylMvWCGeEJea

Save Me

*TRIGGER WARNING* This chapter deal with childhood sexual abuse. There’s no graphic content but it may be hard for some people to read.

This was part of chapter 5, but I decided it needed to be it's own chapter, so I broke them up.

Reviews and edits make better writers.
