Always Something to Lose

The woman with the long, curly hair wanders into the bar excitedly, mindlessly. She expects a night of fun, and hopes to catch someone’s attention. And she will. Soon. But when she does, she’ll wish that she hadn’t.

The man with the twisted, wolfish grin spots her. He wants her, wants to know all of her. And he will. Soon. But when he does, she’ll wish that he didn’t.

She takes a seat at the bar, orders a drink, and he makes his move, offering to pay for it. He can afford it, so she lets him. He can afford all sorts of things, and he knows that she’ll pay for it a thousand times over when he gets her to his house.

“I’m Eric,” he tells her.

“Dia,” she says in reply, and it’s a mistake.

They talk amongst themselves about nothing of importance until the bar closes. When it does, he asks her to go home with him, she agrees, and it’s a mistake, but she’s excited to be going—after all, she has nothing to lose.

He’s excited too, and knows exactly what he’ll do.

Sammy Styles: It is one of those stories that keeps you on the hook till the last moment. A roll of pictures were piling up and with continuous moving, it was like I was watching a film. The scenes were dramatic with a bit of every emotion. The story contains every essence of mystery, romance and adventur...

Nishant Jain: I felt as if i am watching a movie,not reading a book. The story was definitely interesting. It was more of action than horror for me. There are a few grammatical and spelling errors I came across and at times I found it difficult to imagine some things which the author is trying to convey, but o...

Hayley: Beautiful story that has been well written. Something I will definitely read again. I loved how you could feel the tension between them and I loved the ending because It left it open to our imagination. I look forward to seeing to reading further stories by the same author.

Jason Phang: I'm pretty new to Inkitt (this is only my 4th book) and I must say I've been thoroughly impressed by the quality of the authors here. Remnants of Chaos is an excellently written book that hooks the reader, and doesn't let go. There are some grammatical and typographical errors, but nothing too se...

iann4701: I'm no expert but I know when I have read a good book and this was one. From the beginning it had me wondering where it was going next and what the outcome would be.

Nida Bhounr: the novel was a very typical and clichéd plot boy meets girls , impregnates her and leaves her because of prior commitments then they meet up again. but nonetheless it was very nicely written. it was very typical but i liked it.

hannahparson11: When I downloaded this app, I expected crappy writing from amateur authors. Needless to say, I am pleasantly surprised at the stunning writing this novel presented, and the amazing plot. Worth the read.

danijelstoilkovic: I really like this story. The characters, the mysteries, that bonding in the end, but I would really like to see what happened next. Is there a second part? And this would really be one cool horror movie and if I was the director, I wouldn't change a thing.It's awesome!

Deidre L. Swain: I understood where the story was going but the writing skills were lacking a lot. There are some places that had no flow. The plot was good which is what kept me reading the whole story. I think the author shows promise. They just need to tighten up on their skills to really get it going

Lydia Sherrer: I first read The Speaker almost a decade ago when I first discovered author Sandra Leigh. I loved it then, and I still love it now. It is a simple, easy read, yet deep in meaning and rich in storyline. I do not know what kind of research or prior knowledge Leigh has of First Nation tribes, but sh...
