There's a monster in every closet, and I'm in yours.
My name is Noah. I'm not a nice person. This isn't cupcakes and candyland, love.
I'll take you, break you, and offer you to the highest bidder without a second thought. You're mine now. It's business, nothing personal. You wouldn't understand, and I'm not going to explain it. Sorry, love, you don't mean a thing to me.
Just know that there's a monster in every closet, and I'm in yours.
Author Note - This dark romance novel contains themes that may be discomforting to some people. If you are sensitive to depictions of violence, then this book is not recommended for you.

There is a light at the end of every dark tunnel, no matter how dim it may seem.
While finding a "Chastity White" was difficult, actually getting her was one of the easiest things I'd ever done. It was always the same with college girls, though. Most were easy to acquire. Figure out their schedules, find out if they went out drinking now and again, then go collect them there. If they were promiscuous, all the better, since I could pretend I was picking one up, then do my thing.
The hard ones are the librarian-types. Not actual librarians, but those stuffy chicks who stay in and read books all the time. Oh, I can't go out to a bar, I've got to read War and Peace for the eighth fucking time, alright?
I'm not against well-read women or anything. Women can do whatever the hell they want as far as I'm concerned. I just don't enjoy trying to figure out a way to kidnap them when they're like that. It really pisses me off.
Chastity White was simple, though. Not an actual whore or a book whore from what I can tell. Some nice, simple bitch, who did things now and then, went out, but nothing illegal. Good enough for me, even if she wasn't what I would look for in a woman. Even better that she was turning twenty-one soon. I couldn't be completely sure, but I thought she'd probably go celebrate her birthday somewhere with an excessive amount of alcohol like every other stupid college kid in the history of the world.
She did, too, so that worked out great. I followed her, waited for her friends to separate a little, moved in when two of the girls she was with weren't paying attention, off dancing with some random, boring looking guys, and...
In for the kill. Target locked. Whatever the fuck you want to call it.
Then out. Drunk was easy to deal with. I knew how, and I liked how easy they made it. Couldn't think, couldn't realize what was going on until it was too late. Offer to help them to the bathroom so they could throw up, then be the nice guy who helps them clean up after, too. I've done it before, and I like how easy it is. Give them my handkerchief laced with chemicals to knock them unconscious, carry them to my car, and done.
This stupid bitch threw up on my shoes, though. Yeah, I could clean them, but it really pissed me off. I was planning on really enjoying myself with her once she woke up. I always enjoyed myself because otherwise it became depressing real quick. It worked easiest when I had a grudge.
Training would begin soon.
