But our bond is unbreakable.

“I don’t want him to find us,” Pippa whispers, staring at me with a frightened expression.

I cup her face in my battered hands, smiling down at her with everything I have. “I’ll never let him hurt you again, Pippi, never.”

“Let’s go,” I encourage, taking our bag and running towards the front door.
