Plot

When Hazel met Byron, she was hustling to pay tuition, a bit aimless, but knew she wanted to get the hell away from the life her father built for himself. However, what she didn’t foresee was Byron not only being attracted to her, despite catching her scamming people but that he would damn near hold her hostage for nearly ten years, cutting her off from everybody.

However, after trying to fall for Byron and deal with the rules and lifestyle he set forth, he took things too far by drugging her and implanting a chip in her head. One which allows him to know everything that is going on with her, down to the chemical level. With that, Hazel is done and is trying to figure a way to divorce Byron and be free of him.
