Release Date: July 14, 2020
I am a simple man. I love fine vodka, whips, and beautiful women.
And I have a secret.
At twenty-one, I’ve just inherited my family's entire fortune.
Young, rich, and powerful, I am a force to be reckoned with -
in and out of the bedroom.
But the streets of Russia are dangerous.
When innocence is threatened, I risk my life to save a girl.
Now the Bratva have their sights set on me.
I did not ask to be a hero, but I refuse to back down.
I will fight to the end to protect the honor of the woman I love.
I am Rytsar Durov.
And they have no idea what they have unleashed!
I start back down the hill, my soul heavy with loss. I enter the train in a daze, unaware of the people around me. My heart aches with the same intensity as the day I lost her, and I put my hand to my chest, finding it difficult to breathe.
I get off at the next stop so I can collect myself before the tears start to fall.
As I stand there, taking deep breaths, I look across the tracks to the train stop on the other side. I see a young woman sitting alone, reading a book.
A train thunders by between us, shaking the platform as the air fills with the loud clickety-clack of the wheels on the track.
After it passes, the silence returns. I take several deep, calming breaths trying to ease the ache in my heart.
I look to see the girl is still there, completely lost in her book.
I walk over to study the train schedule and realize I’m going to be stuck here for a while. I groan as I take a seat on the bench.
Eventually, an old couple joins me.
Not wanting to cry in front of them, I use the girl across the train tracks as a distraction by making up a story about who she is and where she is headed.
I imagine she is the daughter of a high-ranking general. No doubt, her father is overly protective and rarely lets her out of his sight. Not one to stay caged, she sneaks out whenever she can and rides the train for hours. Although she knows that she’ll be punished for it when she returns, it’s worth the price to be free—if only for a little while.
I see two men join her on the platform. She is oblivious of them, too caught up in her reading.
I watch the men speak to each other as they look at her. After several minutes pass, they look around to see if anyone is watching.
I feel the hairs on the back of my neck rise.
I stand up to let them know that I see them.
Off in the distance, I hear another train racing down the tracks toward us.
They look in the direction of it and start talking animatedly to each other. I call out to the girl, trying to get her attention, but she doesn’t look up from her book.
The men look at me as the speeding train approaches.
When they start walking toward the girl, I shout to warn her, but the whistle of the train drowns out my voice. I know she will be gone once the train passes.
It’s like watching what happened to Tatianna play out in front of me.
Glancing at the train barreling down the tracks, my instincts kick in…
