Description "If You Leave (Beautifully Broken #2)"

Chapter One Kabul, Afghanistan It’s the smell of blood that tells me I’m dreaming. Or awake. At this point in my life, it could be either one. Either way, the smell fills up my nostrils and sticks inside my nose; rusty, metallic and sweet. I know from experience that if I’m sleeping, it’ll still be there when I wake up. A pungent reminder of a night I’ll never get away from. It’s a hell that I’ll never escape. Even as I squirm, as I try to wake, a noise penetrates my consciousness, a noise that doesn’t belong in this dream. I know that because I’ve relived the same nightmare a hundred times. This new sound and sensation don’t belong. It’s the unmistakable crunch of bone in my hand. My eyes snap open and I look around, registering several things at once. I am in a whorehouse in Kabul, the same one I always use. The girl’s black hair is grasped tightly in my fingers, wrapped around my left hand. With my right, I clutch her limp hand, her broken fingers splayed at unnatural angles. I immediately release her fingers and she stares at me, pressing her other hand to her mouth to contain a scream. Tears flood her eyes and spill down her crushed cheek.
