. . . Payback – my Thesaurus is so very proud of me.
I can go on, but the premise is still the same. I MUST have penance on the man who broke my sister’s heart! And what better way to accomplish that than by ruining his most prized possession?
No one likes a cheater, but what’s even worse than being a cheater is being one who doesn’t care; who doesn’t even have the decency to apologize or show remorse – the least the guy could do is fake it; I mean, he must have experience after spending a year leading my sister on like he has.
Am I pissed? The answer is yes.
Am I bordering on crazed – insane – with my need for striking back? The answer could be a toss-up, but . . . yes to that one, too.
Do I care? Let me take a moment to ponder that weighted question . . . NO! She may be my older sister, we may not get along ninety-five percent of the time, but when it comes down to it I will always be in her corner. And since she is too shy and too nice to exact revenge on her own, it falls to me, the black-sheep o f the family and the resident rule-breaker to do it for her.
That’s how I find myself sneaking onto the property of one of the richest families in the entire city – maybe one day the world, but that’s a whole other nightmare. That’s how I find myself entering the garage with the nearby hose tucked beneath my arm.
Another question: am I a horrible person? Well, that depends on your standards.
Am I evil enough to turn on that hose and dump water into the gas tank of the cheating bastard’s Hennessey Venom GT? If you answered yes then kudos for you. Here’s a virtual cookie. Eat and then go for a run to burn off all those horrendous calories.
Seriously though, for being one of the richest families in the city they should really think about upping their security if I barely broke a sweat in dodging the cameras on the grounds and slipping into the ‘locked’ garage. One never knows when a crazed ex – or in this case the ex’s crazed sister – would want to break in and even the score. It was pretty easy turning on the water and taking the nozzle to the gas tank, depositing several gallons of sadistic-deviousness inside. Even easier to sneak back out and make my getaway.
After I wiped things down for prints, of course.
Watching all of those cop shows has finally paid off.
One thing to remember, though: never mess with a girl’s heart. Especially the shy ones. They’ve always got a trick or two up their sleeves. Or in my sister’s case, a little sis that’s willing to go to prison just to hit a nerve on the guy who broke her heart.
You know what they say about payback, don’cha?
KC_Ward: Black Mark was one of the most interesting romance novels I have read. I really enjoyed the fact that Mora has such a strong character and held her ground. Each character had a background story that gave clues as to what shaped their personalities. This novel was almost like two books rolled into...
catd69: Karim is a very talented writer. When I started reading his journey it took me into the book and I was in the story till the end. I've never felt this way with any other writers stories. If you want to read a gripping adventure, this will be the one book I would suggest you pick.
ayataksi barari: it's a gripping tale. it gets too sarcastic sometimes though it is almost understandable seeing aqueelas character. but, but, but, what happens after that? does she come back? does the love story we have all been rooting for take a good turn or worse, comes to an end? jt goes to south Africa afte...
Alex Rushmer: This was not what I expected, but I enjoyed it a lot Malfoy was always one of the characters that I liked a lot, so I like that a lot of this happens between him and Colette. I read the first couple chapters, and I enjoyed your writing style and am excited to see where you take this story. My com...
mullikin902: Do not start reading this book unless you have enough time to finish it in one sitting, because you will not be able to put it down! Superlative! Addictive! Deliciously wicked characters you can't get enough of. Impatiently waiting for the sequel!
Diana123: Wow! This story is very emotional to begin with. And then it is also exciting, interesting and amazing. There are so many moment and situations in this story that really moved me and made me want to cry (to begin with – the story about little Norm not knowing what a hug is, then the death of his ...
serginemuzac: This book had me dieing😂😂😂 It was super lit and I was reading it for the whole day. Its really interesting and I couldnt put my phone down until I finished all 22 chapters! Even though the grammer was a bit off (I actually enjoyed it, it made everything funnier) I really liked it.
Ruby0h: Overall I thought your story was really good! It drew me in right away and kept me interested as the story progressed. I loved the character of Kayla being inserted into this story, and the way she affected and shaped the life of the original story into something totally new and interesting. I lo...
Alex Rushmer: Chapter One: Not much is happening in this chapter, but I was absolutely fascinated by the depth of your character development. I love how you just sat there with the reader and explored Eddward. Usually, that sort of thing gets boring very fast, but this was actually really cool! He's so unique ...
Hudson: Your story was fantastic Erin! The Rising Sun was one of the first stories I read on Inkitt, and I have to say I don't regret the three to four days I spent pouring through the story.Probably the biggest strength I see in your writing is your characterisation of Eliana, Oriens, and the rest of th...
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...
