“Please, Hilise. Please die in place of Gabrielle.”
My always dignified brother begged me for the first time.
He wants me to die for our stepsister, whom we don’t even share a drop of blood with.
“For the first and last time, I ask you this.”
I’ve always been miserable, and there is no exception this time.
The seventh time that I was betrayed and killed, I was completely free of lingering feelings.
“I’m glad that you’re a scumbag until the end.”
I won’t be swayed by love anymore. It’s my turn to abandon them first.
