Happy Ever After doesn’t end at the Epilogue. The Epilogue is really only the beginning. For us, it’s meant sharing every high, every low, and loving each other even more when we come out the other side still standing. He’s everything I’ve always wanted. My best friend. My lover. My husband…

My Demon.
And I’m his Angel.

Our life hasn’t always been perfect, but to me as long as I get to wake up to Angel in my arms every morning and get to tuck our girls into bed at the end of each day I’ll be the happiest man in the world. Nothing can come between us, nothing can tear us apart.

Only…I have one regret. One that is still a black void in my head.

Every year it’s the same.

The regret.

The self-loathing for the man I was back then.

The anger that I’d taken something from the woman who has given herself to me so freely and being unable to remember a single second of it. This year it’s worse for me. It’s slowly driving me crazy.

Maybe it’s time to hit rewind and give us both a do over for that night.

Maybe what I really need is a memory to replace that empty blackness that is trying to swallow me whole.


Stop,Drake whispered in a voice that was rough and gravel-like. Please dont cry. This wasnt what I wanted when I started planning this.

Planning what?I choked out and pulled away from him.

None of it was making sense and all my oxygen-deprived brain could think was that he had been planning on leaving me. Hed been so distractedso distant at times lately. I replayed every second of the last two and a half weeks, from the moment Id first thought something was wrong until right now. Id missed something, I knew I had. Why the fuck hadnt I made the time to confront him and demand to know what was going on?

I got less than half a step away from him before his hands tightened almost painfully on my waist and he trapped me in place. Blue-gray eyes locked with mine, easily reading all the thoughts in my head. I didnt know how it was possible, but he paled even more. No, Angel. No. Fuck, thats not what I meant. I would never leave you. You are my life. All I am is yours. Theres no way in hell Id survive even one minute without you by my side.

Relief washed over me, making my stiff muscles tremble as one by one they released the tight hold my mind had forced on them. Then what did you mean? Please, Drake, just tell me whats going on. Why have you been so distracted? You dont smile anymore. You didnt even come to bed last night. Are…” My stomach cramped and my brain protested the words that needed to be said out loud. Are you drinking?

One callused hand cupped my jaw, his thumb rubbing over my cheek, wiping away a few of the tears that had yet to dry. No, Angel. Ill admit that the cravings have been worse lately than they have ever been, but Ive gone to my meetings. I havent touched a drop of alcohol since I nearly lost you for the second time all those years ago. The numbness it gives me isnt worth the risk of losing you.

Unconsciously I leaned into his touch, needing to be closer to him. His icy fingers had yet to thaw but they helped calm me a little. Then what?The words came out a choked whisper. Something was wrong, something was going on in his head. Please, babe, Im so scared right now.

He sucked his bottom lip into his mouth, chewing on it. My heart turned over at how young and innocent that small act was. In that moment I saw him as a scared teenager rather than the forty-five-year-old man he was. I wanted to wipe away the furrow between his brows, kiss away the damage he was doing to his lip. I wanted to go back in time and wipe away every bad thing that still had the power to torture his kind soul.

Do you know what today is, Angel?
