Athena is visiting home ready to spend time with her family. Now that her sister has run off with her kidnapper, her father is ready for the upcoming election and her mother is always off on some place or other, the family is more broken than ever. She's also stuck with a bodyguard that she didn't want in the first place. How is she supposed to cope with the dealings life throws at her?
Lucifer hates anything that has to do with socializing or talking to people. He's only close with his family and he wants to keep it that way. That is until a certain woman keeps getting under his skin. It's also bringing out urges he had been suppressing for years. How is he supposed to deal with things that are out of his control?
