Fate is a twisted b*$#@, at least his was.
Was one soul worth the lives of millions? The quandary was one that Rydell King had no choice but to face. No matter the answer, the truth remained—innocence was created to destroy him. She was beautiful…extinguishing her to save his people seemed impossible, and maybe it was. As an immortal, his focus was to destroy the curse upon his people, as he devoured the emotion that bore him—exaltation, no matter the cost. She made him question everything.
Mercy had never been crueler.
Raven spun in place and right as she did she stopped cold. What is it with this guy and dark places and crowds? “Mystery man is here.” Right as Raven spoke he edged around the wall so you could only see half of him—not that the move made him look less hot, mind you. He was fit like Soren only taller, thicker. His hair wasn’t as long but it wasn’t short either.
“Where?” River asked as she glanced from the Firebird to Raven.
Raven spun back around. “The corner wall right where everyone and their momma are walking by.”
River furrowed her brow in his direction but then someone revved up an engine and her attention moved back to the firebird. “I told you to kiss him and put him in his place. Prey or predator—there are only two choices in this game, Raven.”
Raven sighed and rolled her eyes, games—screw games.
“Do what? What am I missing?” Kimberly asked.
“Nothing. I have to pass under the school to get to two of my classes and I always end up against this senior and he has a good time with that fact.” I kinda do too.
“Does he, like, grope you or something?”
“Not bad. I mean we are slammed into one another down there, but he’s put his hand on my hip and smelled my hair.”
“Do what?” Kimberly almost shouted.
“Yeah, he knows he’s cute.” Walking sex.
“Which is why I told you to kiss him,” River said again, only partly paying attention. “You walk up to that boy and take control and he will get an attitude adjustment.”
“I don’t get you two,” Kimberly said. “Kissing a boy to punish him?”
“It’s the power struggle. Boys like him think they know a thing or two and just have to make us giggle to give them an in. You show them they don’t and they stop the BS. Then they’re the ones with the goose bumps and can’t think straight.”
“You want to handle this for me? Because I’m not about to make a fool of myself,” Raven said. “I don’t claim to be a master in that department.”
Kissing Soren was one thing. It was an act. Teasing a boy? She wasn’t mean enough to do that.
“Who does?” River said with a sideways glare. “It’s not how good you are, it’s the way you do it.”
Jamie Magee has always believed that each of us have a defining gift that sets us apart from the rest of the world, she has always envied those who have known from their first breath what their gift was. Not knowing hers, she began a career in the fast paced world of business. Raising a young family, and competing to rise higher in that field would drive some to the point of insanity, but she always found a moment of escape in a passing daydream. Her imagination would take her to places she’d never been, introduce her to people she’s never known. Insight, her debuting novel, is a result of that powerful imagination. Today, she is grateful that not knowing what defined her, led her on a path of discovery that would always be a part of her.
