There was something "freakish" about Eric Chandler. If black clothing, heavy metal music, and a general apathy toward humanity didn't turn Chantel off, then stalking was definitely a deal-breaker. Chantel's life was perfect before Eric shoved himself into it, and she is desperate to keep it that way. Eric couldn't agree more. Chantel is a risk he's never had the courage to take, and he's built a philosophy on staying away from "her kind". But staying away from her is harder than he counted on, and that is starting to become a problem. Or rather a beautiful disaster waiting to happen, when loving someone is a choice between who you really are and the person she makes you want to be.
