Finding Emilia was a chance to do something good for once in my life.

I should be telling her the truth about meâ¦instead I break her with lies.

âWhat can I do to help you, Emilia? What do you need?â I wonder what it is she truly needs, aside from the basics of shelter and food.
âNothing. Youâve done enough for me already.â
âI havenât done anything.â
âYouâre letting me stay here, which is very kind and honestly very unsettling.â She lets out a little laugh. âI donât know you. I know nothing about you, except your name is Alex. And quite frankly, this entire situation scares me a little bit.â Itâs the first time sheâs been open with me, and I want to put her fears to rest.
âWhat do you want to know?â I lean back against the cool brick wall and study her.
She sits cross-legged on the bed, her skirt tucked just inside her knees. âDo you always pick up girls from the side of a road and bring them home?â
âNope. This was definitely a first.â I chuckle.
âHow old are you?â
âWhatâs your last name?â
I hesitate, wondering what sheâd find if she Googled me. âEstrada.â
âWhat do you doâyour job?â
Shit. My family runs a fucking cartel. We smuggle drugs, people, gunsâyou know, living the American dream. I barely contain my cringe as I half-lie, âI own real estate and am co-owner of a transportation business.â
That wasnât so hard.
She eyes me cautiously. âSo youâre rich.â She glances out the open bedroom door into the condo thatâs overbearing and way too extravagant for someone my age.
âI have money, enough of it that Iâm comfortable, but Iâm hardly rich.â I donât know why I said that, but itâs true. While I have cars, a luxury condo, and more money than I can spend in my lifetime, there are so many things Iâm missing. The things that truly make a person rich, I will never haveâa nine to five job, a normal relationship, a family.
A spark of amusement hits her eyes. âWhatâs your favorite color?â
I give a small smile. âBlue.â
âDo you have any siblings?â she continues.
My brows furrow at this sudden onslaught of random questions. Before I can answer, she jumps in with the one Iâm not sure Iâll ever be able to answer honestly.
âWhat scares you?â
I hesitate, wondering how to answer. Never show your fears. This is how I was raised. Men donât show fear and they never talk about what scares them. âNothing. I mean, I havenât really thought about that.â I shrug. âNothing scares me.â Everything scares me. My life scares me. The fact that I have to look over my shoulder every time I step out of my house scares the living shit out of me.
Pushing forward off the exposed brick wall, I come to where she sits on the bed. As I get closer, her eyes drop from mine to her hands thatâre resting on the pillow in her lap. I stand over her thin body and drink in her beauty.
You scare me, Emilia. The feeling to protect and care for a beautiful stranger that I just met scares the living shit out of me.
âWhat scares you?â I ask her quietly.
She looks up at me, her bright hazel eyes glistening with tears. âEverything,â she whispers. âEverything scares me.â
I want to run my fingers across her cheek to wipe her tears but I hold back. âDonât be scared. I wonât let anything hurt you."
Itâs the first of many lies Iâll tell Emilia.
