Wherever Our Journey Leads Us
She did more than save my life, she stole my heart.
I didn’t have a choice; my only option to find out who murdered my parents was to die myself; become a ghost. The hardest part was not being able to tell my best friend, Nash, and my sister Natasha.
Everything was set.
It was supposed to be my last assignment, a peacekeeping mission. What I didn’t know was they had hired someone else to take me out, and it would have worked if it hadn’t been for her; the woman that hid her beautiful face behind a worn piece of material; the woman that had caught my attention as she watched her daughter on her door stoop. My name is Alec, and that woman saved my life.
It was not the first-time soldiers came to my village, but he was different. He played with the village children making them laugh and smile. Something that does not happen very often here anymore. Then he saw my Neelam sitting by herself at my door. He offered her sweets, but not until he had my permission to approach her. Then the loud thunder of an explosion shook the ground. My house began to crumble, but he was there sacrificing himself for my daughter and me. Saving us.
I don’t know how long I was unconscious for, but I woke to the most beautiful cognac-colored eyes staring down at me. This wasn’t ever supposed to happen. This wasn’t in the plan.
I was supposed to be a ghost, but after what she risked for me, I couldn’t leave her here to die. She is my Aliah and will soon be mine.
