Pack Of Lies

By Winters2219 All Rights Reserved ©

Thriller / Action


How can life change so much to the point where it is unrecognizable at some points and others things are thoroughly predictable? Well, that is where life for Rain has been every second of every day for the past five years almost. The struggles of being a single mother of two, working and paying the bills, while trying to finish a degree make Rain completely normal; that is, until her past comes back rearing its ugly head full force. Before Rain has a chance to catch her breath her entire world is turned upside down and she has to reconcile her past to save whatever future she can pull out of the wreckage of enemies that are coming to kill her and her children before it’s too late. How can Rain distinguish between friend and foe when the line is so blurred from past events? Rain soon finds out that even as extraordinary as she is with most things, she can’t escape life and all the tangled mess it brings daily. Trying to navigate the messy roads of friend, foe, lover, team, and family as they become more entwined by the moment makes Rain question herself and her judgement as each new event adds stress to the already complicated situation.



When some people look back on their lives they wonder how they got to the point that they are at and what they could have done differently to change their life.

Well that’s exactly what I’m thinking about while lying on the wet asphalt with my blood slowly oozing out of the gunshot wound that I just received from a 9 mm and a man in a mask.

“Way to go Rain”, I think to myself. “Now what?” I try to move only to realize the wound is up to high and the more I move around the faster I lose blood. “Dammit!” I scream as loudly as possible because it’s the only thing I can do. After everything I survived up until now, my once mundane life turned upside down by one man. Who the fuck is it? I wish I could get to him to see, to rip his mask off. I look around. He’s gone.

What now? What can I do to save myself? If I don’t do something soon I’m going to leave my children behind. That’s the one thing I refuse to do. “Get up Rain! Find your cell phone, Rain! Call for help, Rain! No matter what this Bastard can’t win! He will NOT beat me! I don’t care how much he wants me dead and away from Logan, I will not let him dictate my life and my loved ones!”

Slowly, I climb to my knees and spot my cell phone. I crawl over to it and dial 9-1-1. “9-1-1 Operator how can I help you?” Silence. “Hello I can’t hear you. You’re going to have to speak up for me to help you.” Again silence. I made it to the phone and was able to dial it but the amount of blood I was losing pumping from my heart was too much. I black out.

Luckily for me 9-1-1 has a trace locator on all calls that are placed. Now the question lingers as to whether they’ll reach me fast enough. Pray they do reach me in time for my son and daughter’s sake.

europeanlove: I gotta hand it to you. I love reading. I read books everyday. When the book is good I can read it in probably 13 hours. Your story was amazing. Great prose, very imaginative. Incredible dialogue. I am deeply impressed. Keep it up.

TruffleQueen: This piece of writing is more than just letters across a screen. Its more than just 40 chapters. Its a different world. And in that world, you get to experience so many things. I mean, you're practically sucked in there and once you just keep reading it gets harder and harder to get out. This st...

RiverSong: So, at first glance, I thought this was just going to be like any other werewolf book out there that you could find on Wattpad, but I was intrigued enough with the little bloop that I wanted to read more.

FateFellShort: I have read this story and have followed the writers on tumblr from the beginning. Its a wonderful story. Beautifully written with a really nice pace, that makes it enjoyable to read more than once. For me, fairy tail has very good characters but what the writers have done is give them more depth...

Hannah Hall: This story will have you in tears in a good way. One of the best love stories written. Share with your friends and family!

ga1984: I really enjoyed it! Characters were deep and plot was pretty complex. A bit on the violent side but it doesnt detract from the story. Very dark but situations make sense. Ends kinda abruptly and later chapters will need some editing work. I'm assuming there's more in the works?

pikagirl311: Katie Masters has definite skill when it comes to plot work and characters. The story is well-paced and pulls you along with the tide, keeping you hooked until the very end. The only reason I did not give it five stars across the board is due to a few minor quibbles with misspellings and such lik...

John Smith: This is what Sci Fi is all about. Reads like early Heinlein. In the style of Space Cadets. No esoteric problems..but good ol blaster and space action with a host of relatable characters

263Adder: Okay so I adore this story. I only knocked one star off plot for historical inaccuracies because I'm a bit of a stickler for that. The ending broke my heart though, considering you already changed history couldn't you (SPOILER) change it a bit more and have them together!!!! I want an alternative...
