“I’m dangerous, I think you deserve to know that…” he smirked and push a few stray hairs out of my face. His skin never made contact with my skin, but that didn’t stop the shiver that ran down my back. I couldn’t move and words completely failed me.
“How dangerous, you ask? Baby, you don’t even want to know.” he answered his own question. And he was right, I didn’t.

He was still holding the handle, savoring the way it felt in his hand, I was sure. My blood soaked my shirt around the knife and was already making its way to my jeans.
