“Your father is a jerk,” I said before thinking twice of it. “He was wrong then, and he’s wrong now.”
He looked over at me thoughtfully, his pitch eyes tempering as he studied me. “Don’t do that, angel.”
“Don’t do what?”
“Don’t feel bad for me.” He leaned in closer. “Don’t feel anything for me. I know what I am and I have no reservations about it. You’d be a fool to think anything else.”
I wasn’t sure what to say to that. I’d always been the kind of person who believed in second chances. That everyone had redeemable qualities and deserved a fair shot. But Dominic was an anomaly. He didn’t fit in with my preconceived notions of the world. He was a monster and he made that clear to me—time and time again. And yet here I was…feeling bad for him.
It’s got to be the trauma from this past week finally catching up with me, I decided. I shuddered the misplaced feelings away. “Don’t worry, my feelings for you haven’t changed. Hatred is still pretty much at the top of the list.”
“If you say so, angel.”
“But I stand by what I said,” I added quietly so that no one but the two of us could hear. “He’s wrong.”
