Sphinxie and Cadence. Promised to each other in childhood. Drawn together again as teens. Sphinxie is sweet, compassionate, and plain. Cadence is brilliant, charismatic. Damaged. And diseased. When they were kids, he scarred her with a knife. Now, as his illness progresses, he becomes increasingly demanding. She wants to be loyal — but fears for her life. Only the ultimate sacrifice will give this love an ending.
A beautiful and twisted story of first love and innocence lost — written when the author was just eighteen.
