Chapter One

“You thought it was the end, didn’t you?” the voice whispered from the dark corner. “You thought that you had vanquished me, didn’t you?”

“What are you doing here?” Robin whispered, horrified.

“Haven’t you noticed how things are different today?” the voice whispered.

Robin looked around, her mind racing. It took her a second to realize that her hands were completely chained to the pole.

“What do you want?” Robin asked, panic coursing through her.

“What do you think?” he asked. “I want my revenge.”

“For what?” Robin shouted. “For what? What did I do to you?”

“I want to destroy you,” he growled, his evil shining eyes coming closer and closer. “I want to ruin everything and take away everything you ever loved.”

“Why?” Robin whispered.

Out of the darkness, James’ face appeared, badly burnt. His skin was peeling off, exposing the raw flesh underneath, and his face ripped open in a horrifyingly wide grin. He laughed and laughed, his sharp teeth shining in the dim light. And suddenly, the smile disappeared from his face, and then he lunged.

“And that was the end of your nightmare?” Dr. Rosemond asked.

“Yes,” Robin whispered. “I woke up after it.”

“And you have had nightmares every night since the incident, haven’t you? Nightmares about James?” he asked.

Robin looked at the young man sitting in front of her. When Kyle had forced her into therapy, she hadn’t expected to meet anyone like Dr. Rosemond. He seemed like he was too young to be a doctor with his boyish face and charm. Dr. Rosemond wore rimmed glasses, and his face was clean-shaven. Intelligence shone from his eyes as he looked at her. Robin couldn’t help but like him. He was kind and well-mannered, treating everyone with respect. As a therapist, he was wonderful. He made his clients want to talk to him, and he seemed to understand the pain they were going through.

Even though Robin had only been attending therapy for a week, she was already attached to him. He seemed to care about her genuinely. Coming here and talking to him had helped her more than she had anticipated. He wasn’t like those typical therapists. No, he was different, and Robin was glad that she met him.

“Yes,” she said.

“You are returning to work tomorrow, aren’t you?” he asked.

“Yes, finally,” she said. “They are still investigating the incident, but they have enough evidence to clear my name. They wanted me to go to therapy for a while before I was reinstated, but Kyle managed to talk them out of it. Plus, with the recent murder, they thought it would be better to have me on the team.”

“What do you think about James?” he asked. “What are your views about him?”

“I think he was the killer we were looking for,” she said. “Or I thought so, until the most recent murder.”

“That’s your view of him as a detective,” he asked. “What is your view of him as a human?”

“A human?” Robin asked. “I don’t know; I never thought about it.”

“I know how James affected you, Detective Matthews,” he said. “I know how he affected your investigation. Tell me about Robin herself. How did James affect her? How did he make her feel?”

“Are you saying that Detective Robin Matthews and just Robin are two different people?” Robin asked.

“Do you disagree?” he asked.

“No, I don’t,” she said. “I just never realized it, I guess. How did James affect me? I liked him. I liked him a lot, actually. At one point, I even had a crush on him. He was fun and charming, and I thought there might be something between us. Now I realize he must have done all that to get close to me, monitor my movements, and keep an eye on me. Maybe even plant the evidence he needed and frame me for the murders. He never truly wanted me.”

“And does that make you angry?” he asked. “Knowing you were just a pawn in his game?”

“It doesn’t,” she said. “I know I should feel betrayed, but I don’t. I guess because it was nothing more than a crush in the end.”

“Because of Kyle?” he asked.

“I guess Kyle does have a hand in it,” Robin said, a smile spreading on her face. “We both finally confessed we like each other.”

“And how is that going?” he asked.

“I honestly don’t know,” she said. “Neither of us
