Tank and Jess’s story, Collateral Damage, is Live!
Improvise. Adapt. Overcome. A concept every marine is taught to overcome any obstacle life throws at you. I made it my mission to do just that.
Except my way to prevail was to shut down and build impenetrable walls.
Until it didn’t.
Until my life became a shitstorm I could never adapt to or overcome.
Until it took the most important person in my life from me.
I’ve always been on the outside of every relationship. Including the one with my parents.
Then I met Tank, and for the first time in my life, I had hope that I could belong.
Until I didn’t.
Until he shut me out.
He said it was to protect me. To keep me away from the shadows.
Doesn’t he realize all he was doing was pushing me into the dark?
His job is to protect. To save.
