“I love you,” I said. “Like absolutely adore you.”
I stroked his head. His hair was so soft beneath my fingers. I leaned down to place a kiss on his forehead.
“I’ve never felt this way about anyone before…I mean, I have but…this is different. We have something special.”
He gazed at me with hazel eyes that made me smile.
“I’m sorry I can’t free you,” I said as his chains rattled. “You’ll have to stay here till you love me back.”
He gave a muffled scream.
