As soon as I said those words, I felt like my heart was exploding inside my chest, like my lungs stopped functioning, and my tongue felt numb and very heavy inside my mouth.
Tears sprang to my eyes and I had to do everything in my power not to scream at the top of my lungs and take back every fucking word I just said. Not to vow to skin that man alive for daring to attempt and touch what was mine, for even looking at her so dirtily, for merely saying her name with his fucking mouth.
I was shaking with rage, delirious with vengeance, seeing red and no other color.
It was the first time I ever felt this blood thirsty to kill every last one of those men hiding inside that warehouse.
