legacy of lies
Money. Status. Wealth. Power.
All of it—an elaborate illusion.
I was heir to a throne built on lies, my crown forged from corruption.
Stripped of everything I'd been raised to consider my birthright.
Including my princess—who wasn’t mine, after all.
I’ve spent the past decade rebuilding my life, on my own terms.
Now I’ve returned to Manhattan for redemption, too.
Jolie wasn’t supposed to be here.
. . . And I wasn’t supposed to care.
Screw me once, shame on you. Screw me twice—
Who am I kidding? I don’t believe in second chances anymore.
