Innocence comes in several different ways, for her and for me.
Accused of something so vile, I’ve got to find a way to prove I’m not the one they’re looking for. I didn’t do it, and they know it. On top of that, she steps into my life, more like stumbles. Time stops with one look at her, and I see the vulnerability in her eyes.
I don’t have it in me to go for what I want, not when I’ve got this hanging over my head. But I can’t let her go either.
She’s mine for the taking. But will she believe me when it comes to the truth?
