Alexis has been involved with an older man for three years. Over this time they have both come to realise that he has developed a passion for receiving pain. It shouldn't affect her - she isn't the one being physically hurt. But it does affect her. She doesn't want to do it anymore. She doesn't want to deliver pain anymore - not to anyone.
More and more frequently she is having moments where she shuts down and withdraws into herself. She knows that what is happening to her isn't right, and she needs to remove herself from the situation. She starts to put in place plans to get away and make a new life for herself.
But he isn't ready to let her go, and he will pursue her in his desperate attempt to keep her in his life. She will run but can she realistically hide from her powerful obsessor? He is wealthy and has resources to find her and follow her wherever she goes.
All she wants is to get away and start over in a new location and a new life - a life without pain.
