 “I want to tell you about my past and why I am so untrusting. I’ve never told anyone this. Not even my dad.”
She paused and looked down at her hands resting protectively in his. 
“Please tell me,” he whispered and kissed her cheek next to her ear. 
Ellie nodded and moved her eyes back down to their intertwined hands. “I lived with an abusive man in New York.” She didn’t look up to see Jacob’s reaction. “The first time he put me in the hospital, I convinced myself it was the booze and he convinced me he would never hurt me again.” Tears crept down her cheeks. Jacob’s fingertips gently wiped them away. “The second time he put me in the hospital, I knew he’d do it again. But it was too late. He had me right where he wanted me. Alone and afraid. He said if I ever left him, he’d kill me. Because if he couldn’t have me – no one could. I accepted the abuse as part of my life and learned to cover it up well. Not even my coworkers knew. Sure they thought I was clumsy, coming in with little bruises on me now and then. But what they didn’t see, were the larger ones underneath my clothes.” Jacob’s hands tensed around hers.
“The hospitalizations were covered up as car accidents and in New York that isn’t so  uncommon. If I came into work sore, I just shrugged it off as over-excising from eating too much candy at work. The city isn’t like Pleasant Valley – people don’t get into your business. 
If you say you’re fine, they take your word for it. Bryce doesn’t know where I am. I never told him where I was from because he was big city and –” She paused for a tight laugh. “And I was embarrassed of being an inexperienced, small-town girl.”
Jacob wrapped his arms around her and hugged her as if she were a fragile china doll. “He’ll never hurt you again.”
