Code: A system of words, letters, figures or symbols used to represent others, especially for the purposes of secrecy.
Everything comes in twos. His and hers. Mine and yours. Love and hate. Life and death. The world is made up of pairs.
So what happens when the line is blurred, when the rules we use to define our lives become…skewed?
What happens when the rules are broken? His and hers becomes his, hers and…theirs. Mine and yours becomes mine, yours and ours. Love and hate become love, hate and conflict. Life and death become a battle, an infinite number of risks swinging on a pendulum.
Carter cracked my code. He dug deep into the genetics of who I was and he rewrote every moment of my life. He forced his way in, reshaping every thought in my head, manipulating every instinct that kept me alive.
Yet, in doing so he altered the structure of his own code and broke every single rule he lived by. He was the encryption I couldn’t decipher, and I was the mystery that finally forced him to reveal exactly who he was.

His dead eyes fixed on my horror-stricken ones, the blank stare mirroring mine. His head was bent at an angle that couldn’t, shouldn’t, be possible, the severe twist in his neck making his chin rest perfectly between his shoulder blades.
My head shook so hard the impact made my body tremble, my muscles constricting to stabilise the rattle in my bones. My jaw clenched when my teeth sta...
