The Billionaire's Cure “My name is Summer. I am your ex-wife.” Billionaire Lawyer, Aaron Thompson had saved Summer from an embarrassment of a lifetime. Her lover had left her at the altar, and he had stepped in and married her. He saved her from the embarrassment. Four years after, she showed up at his law firm, a totally different person. And he wanted her. The Problem was, he was already engaged to Vivian Barber. Read on to find out how this story unfolds. *************** Chapter One ：Chapter 1 INTRODUCTION/ Summer Hi Guys, Rayden here. Welcome to another amazing story. This is a love story. A romantic one. The kind of passionate love that triumphs the quest for Power. I'll be entering this story into the LOVE ME LIKE YOU DO contest. So I'll need you all to leave an honest review or comment. Or an emoji even. I care about what you think and how you feel. I'll be posting updates about the story on my FB page @ Rayden Writes. You can check it out if you like. So here we go, Enjoy the ride........ SUMMER It was 5.00 am on April 14, in Washington DC when Summer’s alarm went off. That’s how early she had to wake up ever since she got into law school three years ago. But on this particular morning, the alarm didn’t wake her. Because she had already been awake. Summer had woken up at 3.00 am that morning. She hadn’t even gotten much sleep before then. She had spent the better part of the previous day, prepping for her interview. Summer was interviewing at the biggest law firm in Washington DC, Barber & Barber LLP. And she couldn’t afford to ‘not get in. Barber & Barber offered paid internship spots to law students or recent graduates of law. Summer had been trying to get an internship at a reputable firm and this opportunity had gracefully ‘fallen on her laps’. Summer’s friend and roommate at Harvard law, Ava, had helped summer secure the interview spot. Ava came from a top political family in Washington, DC. Her parents had put in a word on Summer’s behalf. And she had gotten the interview invite. Barber & Barber had flown summer from Boston, where her school was, to Washington. It was her first time in the country’s capital city. Summer needed this position. And she had every intention to get it. She felt ready mentally, she was after all an honors student. She knew the law like the back of her hand, but she was still nervous. Which was expected. It was after all, Barber & Barber. Summer let out a loud yawn after her alarm went off that morning. She walked to the mirror of her hotel room and looked at her eyes. She could see the sleep bags forming under. “oh well,” she said to no one in particular, “my concealer would cover those just fine.” But she needed to rest, maybe just a little. Her interview was for 8.00 am and the bus was arriving at 7.15.am. So she stretched herself on the queen-size hotel bed. The sheets were the softest she had ever slept on. And she closed her eyes. Something told summer, just at th...
Blaze In Love
Blaze In Love The death of her mother and the downfall of their small family business made Naja Sarmiento work as a maid in the wealthiest family in their town. She opted to work part-time while pursuing her studies to make both ends meet. She dreams of rising from rugs to riches someday despite the adversities that may come along her journey. Not until Blaze del Fuego—the youngest and stubborn son of the family she’s been working at—came home after failing his studies abroad. Will Naja be able to pursue her dreams despite the tons of trials coming her way? And what is the purpose of Blaze in her life? Will the opposite poles attract each other? Or it would be the other way around? *************** Chapter One ：Chapter 1 Beginning It was early in the morning, the sun was shining brightly, and its rays reflected through the glass window. The birds were chirping as if they were singing a lullaby outside, making Naja smile as she looked out the window. She sighed as she remembered her Mom who used to enjoy this kind of morning vibe. When the clock struck seven o'clock, her father returned home from their flower shop. He went there at dusk and went home because she and her sister, Wendy, had morning classes. Her parents' flower shop had been the family's main source of income for many years. However, when unexpected events occurred, they neglected it, starting to cause the shop's sales to decrease due to the day the shop was closed. They chose to reopen it in order to make up for the sales they should have made. They had been through a lot in the last few weeks, and it has been difficult for their family. Naja was mentally and physically exhausted but she managed to get up early and prepare for their breakfast. Because the school year isn't over yet, she needs to motivate herself to face this new day. Their father sat on the wooden sofa, massaging his temple, looking stressed and unable to express himself. She is aware that something is bothering him, but she did not inquire. She stirred the soup while she waited for Dad to speak. She doesn't want to start the conversation because she senses a problem that he can't just talk about. As soon as she finished cooking the corn soup, she turned off the gas stove. “Wendy, please prepare the table,” she directed to her sister. Wendy assisted her in setting the table. She was placing the glass on the table when it slipped from her grasp, causing it to fall to the floor. Naja's mouth widened in surprise. “I’m sorry...” Wendy paused before bending her knees to pick up the shattered pieces of glass. “I'll handle it. Just get the food ready so we don't get late,” she said as I pushed her hands away. ‘Why does it feel so difficult to complete all of these morning routines without the assistance of our parents? Dad is with us, after all. He's in this house with us, but we can't feel him. He appears to be a ghost or an invisible man. It's not that we couldn't see him; it's just that we couldn't feel his existenc

Stories Varied: A Book Of Short Stories
Stories Varied: A Book Of Short Stories This is a collection of the author’s short stories that deals with women's dilemmas in the Indian social milieu accompanied with unique denouements. While 'Ilaa's Ire' contrasts woman's lot of the day with her eminence in the Vedic Age, '201' Qualms&quot; depicts her predicament, torn between personal loyalty and citizen's responsibility. As &quot;?&quot; addresses woman's marital stress in an alien land, 'Cupid's Clue' is about her acting on rebound in her native place. Even as 'Autumn Love' lets woman discover the marital void in her life, 'A Touchy Affair' makes her amenable to her man's other woman. Just as 'Love's How's That' inflames woman's old flame, 'A Hearty Turn' brings her innate lesbian leanings to the fore. If 'Love Jihad' bridges lovers' religious divide with a secular plank, 'Tenth Nook' creates her marital gulf on the materialistic ground. While 'Eleventh Hour' is about woman's lust for love, 'Twelfth Tale' underscores her zest for power. *************** Chapter One ：Chapter 1 Copyright, Foreword, Dedication BS Murthy ISBN 9781310533877 Copyright © 2016 BS Murthy Cover design of Gopi’s water color painting by Lattice Advertisers, Hyderabad. Self Imprint F-9, Nandini Mansion, 1-10-234, Ashok Nagar, Hyderabad – 500 020 Foreword With the addition of ‘Prey on the Prowl’ to my body of work, I thought the accretion was over without short story genre. Not that I didn’t try my hand at that, indeed I did, but finding the output wanting, I didn’t refill my pen again. Maybe, literature was keen to have my contribution in this fictional sphere as well, so it seems, as beginning from July 2015, Vinita Dawra Nagia came up with “Write India Campaign of Times of India”. Her idea was to let the aspiring writers build their stories on the ‘prompts’ provided by eleven of India’s popular authors starting with Amish Tripathi. When I penned Ilaa’s Ire on Amish’s prompt, it felt like I had crossed the unassailable frontier, and thereafter, for the next ten months, thanks to the prompts by Chetan Bhagat, Aswin Sanghi, Ravi Subramanian, Preeti Shenoy, Tuhin A. Sinha, Ravinder Singh, Durjoy Datta, Madhuri Banarjee, Jaisree Misra and Anita Nair, I had experienced the joy of short story writing. That in the end, I could pen my Twelfth Tale, sans any prompting, perhaps, is a testimony to the success of Vinita’s Write India Campaign.

Today it was Liliana's job to pick flowers in the garden. With some difficulty, the girl with a yellowish brown color curly hair walked around because she had to use a stick to support her body. She sprained her leg after falling down the stairs a few days ago because she was not careful when she went down the stairs. Even so, Liliana was still grateful because she can still breathe the air after six months ago there was an accident on her family. Her parents died instantly in the accident. Luckily, she only had injuries to a few parts of her body but nothing was too fatal. Liliana tried to get up from the downturn that had befallen her life.

The woman who helped her when her other family kicked her out of her house. "Liliana!" Hagne called, who followed the blonde girl into the garden not far from her flower shop. "Yes, Auntie," said the girl who had blue eyes. Then she walked towards the middle aged woman. "Today there is an order for flowers but Fella can't deliver it because she has to go. Can you take it?" Hagne said doubtfully. Fella was one of the girls who also worked at the shop. "Of course, just prepare everything, Auntie, I will clean my body first. After that I will go to deliver it," Liliana said happily. "Very well." Liliana went straight back to the house and cleaned up. As soon as she finished she went straight to the flower shop next to the house to meet Hagne. "Auntie has ordered a taxi. This is the address," Hagne said, while handing her a piece of paper containing the address where the flowers will be delivered. Although hesitant, the middle-aged woman had no choice. This was the first time Liliana had to deliver flowers to a customer. Usually Fella deliver it by motorcycle. Because it was not possible for Liliana to ride a motorcycle considering the condition of her leg, which this time was sprained, so Hagne ordered a taxi. "Liliana, be careful. When you're done you have to come back as soon as possible," Hagne said with a smile. Actually there was a sense of not having the heart to let the girl. But what else could she do, there was no one that she could ask a for. "See you, Auntie." Liliana immediately got into a taxi, assisted by the driver. It...

It is cool, well equipped with florescent bulbs, white tiles, hand showers, a very wide jacuzzi, a huge mirror and a big water heater. There are a bunch of other items and equipment in it, but the size of these few ones, were what made mine unique and solely comfortable. The interior of the rest of the apartment, is made of blue wallpapers and coverings. I craved blue, not just because it gave a cool feel, but because it made me understand that the daily hustle and bustle of work and projects, ceases the moment I set foot in my cool welcoming apartment. Today I decided to just relax and take it easy on myself, but I knew this was impossible, even if I kept my phone on airplane mode, my laptop would keep notifying me of countless emails I needed to attend to. Life is much easier when you are poor, in some sense. But easiness doesn't take away responsibility. Instead, it makes it even heavier in the head of the man who is indigent. "Gosh, I haven't even emailed or called Mum, since I got here." I thought. I removed my phone from flight mode and made it rest on the WC. I was still in the bathroom jacuzzi when this thought came. Too many of my friends feel I am a weird person. I keep a book in every corner of my apartment. My bathroom had two books; one on top of the WC and the another beside my Jacuzzi. Not that I'm a nerd or something, or maybe I used to be. I just fancy the sight of books around my apartment. It reminds me of how I got to where I was today. My hand shower caught my eyes as I laid on my Jacuzzi. I picked it up and put it on. My hair was red. I bet you haven't seen a billionaire with a hair lately. My eyes were dark brown, and my skin was flabby. Mother used to say when I was younger, I had a white starched. Nanny that wouldn't let even a grain of sand stick to my body. I reached for my buzzing Samsung phone on top of the WC. It was hard to get by just stretching, so I stood from the jacuzzi and got hold of my phone. A little water splashed my water proof book cover, but I didn't care much. "Finley!!!," Mum yells as I answered the call. "It's been six hours since you left Texas and you didn't deem it wise to call back to let us know your back at your apartment in New York?" She cried. "What's worst is your phone has been switched off. Did you put you

Loving Her to the Bones
Loving Her to the Bones When I was six I was abandoned on the street. It was Reuben Andrews brought me a home. Although he was only a few years older than me, I insisted calling him Uncle. I believe the title would make me be sober about our relationship. Years passed, and I found this man accompanying my growth was increasingly hot and attractive... Maybe I fell in love with him? That's not allowed!! But why did he kiss me in front of all the family members? *************** Chapter One ：Chapter 1 The rain had been lashing down for a day and a night but still showed no sign to stop. Before it dawned, two shadows flashed across the corridor of the hotel, leaving behind streaks of blood. In a suite, a young couple was lying in blood. The wife stared outside the window, muttering inaudible words with trembling lips. A little girl about five or six years old was running down the muddy road barefoot, her face wet with either tears or rain. She didn't dare to look back because her mother had asked her to run as fast as she could. Suddenly, she tripped over a puddle and fell. The doll in her hand rolled away from her. At this moment, a young man got off an SUV and bent to pick up the doll. He flicked off the mud on the doll before handing it to the girl and carrying her into the car. Twelve years later, in City A. In the city's most luxurious hall, a splendid exhibition was presented. At the same time, next to the hall, several students who had just graduated from high school were having dinner. It was almost over. Yasmin Barnes splashed water on her face and smiled resignedly when she saw her reddened face in the mirror. She just had two glasses of beer. Then she bent down and washed her face again. She suddenly felt someone touched her back, but when she wiped her face and looked back, there was no one. An illusion? As soon as Yasmin came out of the bathroom, a group of people hurried toward her. They were the staff of the exhibition. She just cast them a glance and was about to leave. But they stopped her. "Miss, we watched the surveillance footage and suspect that you stole something from the exhibition. Please come with us." Yasmin was astonished when she saw them take a jade seal from her bag. All the eyes were fixed on her intensely. She immediately realized that she had been framed. Maybe the one who had stolen the seal hadn't intended it, but she was the scapegoat now. "Would you like to explain why the seal was in your bag?" A man asked politely. He looked like the head of these staff. "It's easy," Yasmin answered, looking at the box on the table, "The thief stole it and put it in my bag." The man asked, "There are so many people here. Why did the thief choose you?" Yasmin gave him a disdainful look and said, "Two possibilities. The thief either used me to take this out or wanted to frame me." Her explanation incurred derisive laughter and the man shook his head. Someone in the crowd behind shouted, "Why would the thief f...

I asked panting while they both giggled and stopped running too " We are sorry mummy " both Emma and Evan replied simultaneously. " Now come here and get dressed for school, you don't want to get late right?"I asked " No mummy, I don't want to get late but maybe this dummy here will want to" Emma replied pointing at her twin brother who glared at her. I chuckled at their behaviour shaking my head. " Did you hear what she just called me mummy?" Evan asked glaring daggers at Emma. " Aren't you a dummy?" She asked folding her arms . " If I am a dummy then you are a dullard" Evan replied sharply. I sighed waving my hands in the air, this two won't be the death of me. They are always fighting here and there and I am beginning to get tired of their bickering all the time . " That's enough kids, now to your room. I will meet you in two " I said to them. " Yes mummy " they chorused running into their room . Sighing again, I turned to the kitchen and discovered there was no food. My kids will have to go to school with an empty stomach? . I face palmed myself trying hard not to cry but I couldn't help it. This past few weeks I lost my job as a delivery girl hasn't been easy for my kids and I. We find it hard to eat, even if I see a little. I'd keep it for Emma and Evan leaving me to starve . I don't know how I would have survived it without Andrew by me. He's really been my back bone and I owe him a lot. I have no money with me to buy at least snacks for them. What am I going to do? " We've dressed up ourselves mummy but we can't put on the sandals " Evan yelled. I quickly wiped my tears leaving the kitchen. I don't want them to know I cried. It won't go down well. " I am coming champ" I entered into their room to see both struggling to put on their sandals. " Here come, I will help you " I said to Emma who nodded. Evan stared at me with a frown on his face. " Mummy?" He called with the same frown not leaving his face. " Yes champ? I am almost done with your sister, just give me a minute " I replied. " Did you cry? Did you hurt yourself? Did anyone insult you? " Ah! I thought as much! What will I do with this boy? He's so sensitive ! " No champ, I didn't cry, I didn't hurt myself and no one insulted me " I replied ruffling his hair . He f...
MISMATCH He’s rich, she gets by just fine. She’s naïve, he’s straightforward. He hates jokes, she feeds off the force of lame puns. What will happen if Mr. Perfectionist meets Ms. Clumsy? They say opposite attracts, but are they a mismatch? Christopher Ivan Ross finds the idea of love fascinating, not because he’s a romantic, but because he’s a workaholic, hot-headed, piece of an insufferable jerk. But when his trusted secretary threatens to resign, he’s bound to cross paths with a person who will unknowingly change his life. Serena Kim, a hardworking young woman so ingenious, she misses most of his signal. Embark on the romantic-comedy (and a little spicy) story of the polar opposite protagonists and witness the confusing turn of events that would immediately turn their ideologies around. *************** Chapter One ：Chapter 1 Opposite Lives A sound of click blares as his annoyance soared. "Your gullibility is vexing," he uttered and turned his heel away from the clueless lady. He didn't even get far before she calls him again in protest. “D-director Ross!” The sound of her sweet voice glued him to his spot. Her soft-spoken words weakened his knees, causing something to rise. The temperature, that is. The man wearing an inexplicable frown looked back, only to see her bent down and offering him a full bow. “I don't know what fellatio is, but okay! I'll give you that for your birthday!” she exclaimed eagerly, glimmering with enthusiasm upon looking up. Just like that, his scowl turned soft, and the hue of his fair face flushed bright red. Shaking his head, he scratched his nape in embarrassment. Though he tried his best, all he could do was bite his lips to stop himself from laughing. "W-what am I going to do with you..." he muttered, hiding his amusement. Walking closer, the hot-headed man gave her a tight embrace, finally yielding to her innocent appraisal. "I just hope it's not pricey. You haven't given me a raise yet!" she added with a muffled mumble, making the frowny devil jovial. “You're turning me on even more...” he whispered, huskily veering her ears. Mismatch Seisshuu 2021 CHAPTER 1 Pacing footsteps, heavy traffic and crazy bystanders trying to rip off gullible tourists grazed the night as usual. The sound it made danced along with the flickering lights of the jam-packed city. “This is New York, baby!” a bearded drunk man screamed in the middle of the road. The cars trying to drive past him honked as they course with the drivers screaming in rage. “Get off the street, you moron!” a cyclist yelled. He just laughed as a response and flipped him off, a classic comeback. Just like what he said, this is New York. Home of the giant green woman holding a torch, or as we all know, the Statue of Liberty. She eyes the horizon with judging eyes. If she can talk, we’d hear the craziest stories with willful cussing. Considering how epic New Yorkers curse, you’d expect it to take a toll on everyone. Except one. Because amidst the ocean of chaos, i
Vampire's Dark Love
Vampire's Dark Love Sweet Aphrodite Villegaz is a girl who has a simple life. Scholar of the Ruther University and an independent woman who lives her life alone. But then everything changed since that day she met a man wearing a black mask. He saves her from danger. But it included chaos... Secrets began to unfold Her life was twisted in unimaginable ways. And she realized...she's not sure what to believe anymore. Especially when she learned that everything is a lie. *************** Chapter One ：Chapter 1 Prologue I can't stop myself from looking at the spine-chilling creatures in front of me. I helplessly hugged myself when the cold wind blew and kissed my skin. Tears are streaming down from my eyes. I am horrified. How I wish that things would go back to normal. When I was still an ordinary student, a scholar at Ruther University. A normal girl that works at night to feed herself. An ordinary woman, living in this world. But now, everything has changed. Dangers lurk around me, waiting for its perfect time. Fatal dangers personified as these monsters in front of me. The vampires. My heart leaped when one of the vampires smirked at me. He closed his eyes as he inhaled sharply, feasting on whatever he smelled. Then he grinned widely. I feel like I am gonna choke in fear when I saw him salivate. His now dilated eyes intensified my fear. "What a very sweet-scented blood..." his raspy voice uttered. "It's addicting." A shiver ran down my spine. I stepped backward, thinking of escaping. But then I remembered how impossible is that. Like a scene in a cliche movie, I am cornered with the towering wall behind and three famished vampires in front of me. I sobbed when I realized that I could die any seconds from now. Is this my end? Am I going to meet my death? Where is he? Why isn't he here to save me? And why am I this stupid to expect that he will always come whenever I need him? "Don't expect him to save you again, lady. Because tonight, you are for us to devour," the vampire in the middle said. I croaked when they move forward to me. I tightened my hug for myself as I stepped backward. I started to try accepting my coming death when my back touched the firm wall. But it's not easy when I am still looking forward to my future. It is never easy. I still want to do a lot of things. I still want to meet my parents and maybe ask them, why did they leave me. I still want to have my own family, so I can feel how to love and to be loved. I slowly slid down against the wall and hugged my knees when they are already a few steps away from me. I heard their blood-curdling growls. "Goodbye..." I heard one of them said with a mocking tone and it was followed with demonic laughs. I shut my eyes tightly as my last resort. I buried my face between my knees. I wish I could die without feeling even an ounce of pain. Please, let me die peacefully. Don't let me experience excruciating torture. I shouted in terror when someone gra...

After last night's episode it's anyone's guess on who will win, Austin the sixteen-year-old from Nebraska who's been the underdog since he entered the competition or Dawn the girl who's been tearing it up the whole time. Tune in after the show to hear our take on how it all went down. "We're on in twenty." Austin's heart pounded as he realized that his life was about to change. He knew it was cliché as hell, but he just felt it deep within. He wasn't supposed to be here. He and his girlfriend, Shelby, had watched Supernova together for a couple years, and she'd pushed him to audition. He never thought he'd make it very far on one of the biggest singing competitions in the US, but he had. He'd made it all the way to the end of finals before he'd been cut. It sucked, but since he didn't think he'd get that far anyway, he went home and that was that. A few weeks later fate threw him a bone when they called him back. Someone had been disqualified and he was back in. It wasn't until he got the chance again that he realized just how bad he wanted it. Everyone thought he'd be cut early. He'd been coined as the underdog the instant he set foot on the stage. Hell, he thought he'd be gone in the first couple of rounds too. He was just a guy from a small town in Nebraska who sang to his girlfriend at night because it made her happy. He had only auditioned because she wanted him to. It wasn't that he didn't want it now because he did. At the start, though, he didn't think he had what it took. Week after week the judges had sat in their seats and busted Austin's chops because he hadn't honed his craft, hadn't perfected what he had. They had given him so much crap because the others had been out doing something with their singing, and he hadn't. Most of

The weather seems bad. Clouds are dark and Murky. The wind brings coldness and resentfulness as if there was a bad omen is about to happen. An unknown place where the old Facility is located that looks nice before looks like a hunted house now where the extracted organ of humans are piled while covered with a cold atmosphere. Teagan woke up after hearing such footsteps coming inside the room. Her eyes are vague and both her arms and limbs are tied up with a thick metal rope that caused her wrist to have a contusion. She recalled that her stepsister Disha confined her there three years ago when she became paralyzed after becoming her toy for the experiment. Disha walked beside Teagan's cot as she crossed her arm glaring at her with disgrace. "Are you having fun this past few days my pitiful dear sister?" She asked as her voice brought abhorrence. She looked at the untouched moldy foods beside Teagan and left a chuckle after picking them up. "Are you disgusted with the foods I brought you, sis? Sadly, you're more disgusting than this!" She chortled evilly as she throws the food at her. She was so sick of the torture of her stepmother and stepsister. Starting when her father takes his mistress, Estella; she doesn't know how happiness feels like anymore. It was like all her delightful moments were taken from her by them.

I don't need to go far away to look for a worthy experimental subject. The person I need is on my side already!’’ She laughed crazily. Teagan just closed her eyes, not letting herself get emotional and take Disha's wor

My tears fell because of joy. I’m so happy for my best friend. She’ve been my bestfriend for almost two years. I wiped my tears on my cheek using the tissue I’m holding. I can’t really stop shedding tears. When I finally finished wiping my tears, a man suddenly appeared in front of me. I gulped. My eyes widened when our eyes met. He has a gray expressive eyes. It was his thick and dark eyebrows who caught my attention at first, but when our eyes met, my eyes couldn’t stop looking at it. “Miss, here, if you want more tissue.” the man infront of me said gladly. My mind can’t even process what he said. He has a thick and long eye lashes. I licked my lips when my eyes lifted on his pinkish lips that I would literally think that he used a lipstick. My eyes drifted on his well-built jaw. I bit my lower lip when I saw how his perfect jaw moved. “H-Huh?” I asked nonchalantly. “Tissue?” he lend the tissue to me. I looked at it and shook my head. “No, thanks.” I refused. “Handkerchief?” he said as he reached me for the handkerchief. I shook my head as an answer this time. “Water? Do you want some water?” he smiled cutely. My mouth dropped open. I tried not to look at him because I’m getting annoyed with him. I turned around to looked for my bestfriend, Venus. I saw her and she’s giving me a sign to come over her. People were still taking pictures with the couple. I would have been there if I hadn’t been blocked by this man. And what is he offering me again? Water? What I am going to do with it? Probably to pour it to him because I don’t need it. But you’re so cruel, Camila, if you’d do it. I sighed heavily and empty smiled at him. I am easily get annoyed and this man has no exemption even I find him. . . handsome and an eye catcher. I rolled my eyes. “Holy water, you want?” He chuckled with no trace of humor. “Is that a joke?” he mocked like it’s too corny if it is. My blood just boiled because of it.

This Stalker Won't Leave Me Alone
This Stalker Won't Leave Me Alone I was being haunted by a stalker. I got a message from an unknown private number one day morning. I simply thought he got the wrong person and blocked him right away. On my way to work, I saw three bodies hanging from the ceiling, three of my coworkers, with words carved on their bodies. THIS IS JUST A WARNING. And my phone vibrated again. It was from the private number again. And he sent me the message ended with "Love you, your stalker."... *************** Chapter One ：Chapter 1 Chapter A screeching like noise could be heard from my phone. Trying to cover up my ears with my blanket to block out any of the noise I started to grunt in protest. ‘I don’t want to wake up I don’t want to wake up’. I kept repeating to myself. But knowing how society works and knowing that my horrible chief would fire me if I even dare to get to work late; I slowly sat up in bed and started to stretch out my arms. Sighing at the site of the orange rays that the rising sun was radiating through my window I stood up. “I guess I have to go to hell today too, great.” I muttered. I walked to the bathroom while yawning and scratching my stomach. I tied my long wavy auburn hair up in a bun so that it wouldn’t hinder me while I was washing my face. I stared at myself in the mirror and sighed. All that I can see is a 23 years old woman who’s already suffering from baggy eyes and tired pale skin. Who also lived by herself in a rundown apartment with two bedrooms and a bathroom combined with a toilet. A message suddenly popped up on my phone as I was trying to leave for work. It was from…Private number? Private number: “Hi, is this April?” Red flags were going off like crazy in my head. One thing that I’ve learned from stories with dark twist is to never give a stranger your name or even confirm it. Hell to the no that I’m going to be killed, scammed or fooled. April: “No, sorry you’ve got the wrong person.” Before I could even put my phone back in my pocket it went off again. Private number: “You sure?” I furrowed my eyebrows in frustration. What the hell? why is he even asking if he doubts me so much? April: “Yeah I’m sure, I sure as hell know who I am. Could you leave me alone now?” Without waiting for his reply, I blocked this person’s number and deleted the conversation. “What a great start of the week.” I muttered. … “April!” A sudden heavy weight could be felt as my best friend jumped on my back. “I’ve missed you.” She said as she proceeded to strangling me in to a tight hug. “Cherry! Get of me you cow!” I was trying to shake her off my back while she was giggling. “Cher.” I said. “Okay, okay, I get it.” She slowly went down and looked at me. “Ready for the battle?” she asked with a grin I shook my head and sighed deeply. “Nope, I want to go home and crawl into my bed watch some good old shows on Netflix.” She nods her head. “I get ya. I just wanna cuddle with my babe right now.” She said as

" I asked my friend Andrea, who was doing something with my hairs and only God knows what. She insisted to let her do my makeup which I couldn't refuse after seeing her puppy eyes. I didn't want my face painted when I face Christian but maybe a little make up won't hurt. "Of course girl, just go for it. You are beautiful, smart intelligent" she announced proudly while I replied, "that's the problem. I'm a total nerd and Christian, he is the most famous guy in our school. Why will he like someone like me?" Her hands stopped as she looked at her creativity, maybe admiring her talent. She turned me around to give me a final look. I looked at the girl who was staring back at me. My hands reached to my hairs, I looked different but in a good way. The new make over boosted my confidence a little while I thought about Christian. Sometimes I found it funny to like a guy who was way out of my range but feelings couldn't be helped. Christian Perez, the school's hottest guy who could make any girl fall for him and I, a nerd. We both had English and History together but I wonder whether he ever acknowledged my presence. He always sat at the back with his group which consisted of Caleb, Ashton, Tony. Caleb was a mirror image of Christian in terms of behaviour but with different looks, he was also a playboy but he only liked blondes while Christian liked both blondes and brunette. Tony is little different, he had a boyfriend Jeremy. He was in a serious relationship with him. He was a commitment type of guy. I was a total introvert and I thought I wouldn't have any friends but fortunately I was wrong. Andrea and I had Maths class together, her personality was polar to mine but that was what attracted us. She prioritised me over everyone which made her my best friend. So, I wanted to confess to Christian... and I knew he would reject me. But a little voice inside me said

I and Jimmy worked together hand in hand and supported each other and we did have our own secret. Actually, it was only one secret. We have kept our illegal work hidden from Jennifer. Jennifer was so stern about our illegal weapons manufacturing and mafia position. So we decided to expand our works but without telling her. I admit that I tried to quit my work as mafia leader but that was too hard. I couldn’t risk it with my family. If I lost that power, then I would be easily haunted by my enemies, which were a lot. Jimmy agreed to me deskin as well. But he didn’t like losing his powerful connections and money. Not like me. I didn’t like the idea of taking permission from others. Yes, if I took off my position from the mafia family and handed it to others. It means I will be controlled by another new king. Which was something I would never accept? All businessmen in the world are controlled actually but it’s not something the normal people could know. Life played with me a dirty game. It took everything precious in just a blink of an eye. One day I was in a hurry for a mafia gathering, but Jennifer was pregnant in her last month and was expected to have our first child in less than a week.

I watched them die. All three of them died in a plane crash! Actually, a bomb was planted there. That’s what I hav

This is the first day of our classes, so I better change myself and do something, like finding good friends, eating healthy snacks at the cafeteria, participate in school, attending classes every day, avoiding cutting classes so that I can prevent getting detention. Sofor now, I want to start everything over. I took a deep sigh and looked at the freshmen looking around and trying to find their rooms. After that, it was still the same. "Sharlene," I immediately glanced at my friend named Chloey, who is still waving her hand, and she was hiding something in her back with her other hand. "Ow? Chloey...I missed you so much. You look matured, huh" I said teasingly, but she looked messed up and still hid something on her back. "I have a surprise for you. Tadaaaa!" she immediately pulled out the red velvet box and revealed what she was hiding in her back. It was a nice present. "What is this?" I said questioningly, and she opened the red velvet box. My eyes were filled with amusement. It was a shiny gold necklace with a guitar shape in the middle of it. "Wow! what a pleasure! Thanks, friend, for this," I said and hugged her tight. "Thank you, Chloey. I missed you a lot. Let's go," I said, and then I grabbed her arm and pulled her inside the university. After the short message from the dean, the bell started to ring, and I'm surprised to find that, Chloey was my classmate, so we chose a table from the back and were sat next to each other. My friend changed a lot. I remembered our childhood. I missed her teddybear toy that talked when you press the body of it. I don't think I changed, and I am still childish. However, I'm trying to be tough and be mature. "Sharlene? how's your vacation?" Chloey asked and bit the tip of her ballpen. "Good, I'm still having fun with my video games, and my life was cycling by playing in my room. How about you, Chloey?" I asked, and her face turned sad. I was shocked when the English teacher entered the room and immediately we stood up and bowed our head with respect. "Goodmorning, sir," we said, and we took our seat. "Goodmorning class, hmm, it seems I see your section is good? The class is silent, and the room is clean. I think I would
My Sassy Dare Breaker
My Sassy Dare Breaker novel read online It was my first time at a bar. I went to the restroom and overheard a guy and a girl having sex and screaming loudly next to my door. "Come, come for me! Tiffany!" "It's Brittany." The girl corrected him. I couldn't believe he didn't even know her name. Did it happen a lot in a bar? The guy came out and invited me to join them. I cursed him and even hit him. Especially when he said that he was not that kind of relationship guy, I felt disgusted and scolded him for treating women like trash. Somehow, his frequent presence changed my whole life. Couldn't believe it, I found such a playboy attractive... *************** Chapter One ：Chapter 1 Camila The NIGHT STALKER CLUB is grandiloquent in red neon bold letters—it’s blindingly bright as to obscure my vision. The club is best known for elites and celebrities, but my cousin has the luck to work as one of the bartenders. I’m glad to hear the news of re-opening after the last month’s incident. It means my cousin is back in his work. Bianca presents our ID to one of the bouncers who looks huge and intimidating. He gives me a second look after glancing back to our ID on his hand. I may look younger than my age but I’m already twenty one and I just got my college degree. The bass frequencies from the huge sound systems reverberate through my chest cavity. My eyes widen in amazement to see the virtual music playing on the 3D walls. Laser lights flash patterns to the dance floor, and it simultaneously changes colors to the beat of the music. Pretty awesome, I must say. The DJ plays one of the most popular hit songs on the chart. People yell in excitement, hands raising in the air as they move like in slow motion. Bianca and Megan drag me to the crowded dance floor. The smell of sweat, perfumes, and booze don’t stop me from swaying my hips as I watch my friends are also dancing with me. I grin and close my eyes. It feels good to get lost in the music thumping through the speakers. The beat of the music starts pulsating my body as I follow the rhythm. We dance for I don’t know how long until I am sweaty and slick. My breathing catches and my heart thumping wildly in my chest. Bianca says something that I can’t make out any words. “What?” I yell. We bark into laughter when we clearly can’t understand one another. We get ourselves out of the dance floor, even so, the music is still loud for us to start chatting. “I need a drink!” Megan yells to my ear. I nod in agreement, yelling back, “I need a restroom!” She leans her face closer, pointing to the empty table at the left corner of the bar. “We’ll be there.” I nod then walk away, trying to find the ladies room. I groan inwardly as I see the line of women waiting outside the ladies room is longer than customers waiting on a sale. My shoulders sag as I walk away until a strong hand grabs me on my arm. I yelp in surprise, hand flies over my chest. A pair of brown eyes narrowing down at m

Urban Vampire is created by Pepper Pace, an EGlobal Creative Publishing signed author. *************** Chapter One ：Chapter 1 -The Turning- When I woke up I was dead. I didn't immediately realize this. I thought I just had a bad case of food poisoning. But no, I was a creature of the night—and I'm not talking Ebonics. I was a vampire. I know how this sounds. Who knew that vampires actually existed? I've watched the campy movies and TV shows just like everyone else. And for that reason alone, I could not have dreamed that vampirism is based on truth. Let's face it. I don't meet the profile of the typical girl turned vampire or girl turned vampire killer. Bella is too tragic, Buffy is a cheerleader, and I'm a black girl from the 'hood. I work nine to five at a local cable company. Drop-dead gorgeous men are not stalking me, and my rounded body does not fit neatly into a size two. So when I awoke that night sicker than I had ever been in my life, hugging the porcelain god, and puking my guts up, I just attributed it to that damned buffet at Club Midnight. It would be a while before I realized that I had already taken my dying breath. As I lay there on the cool tiled floor—not even caring that I had failed to mop it in over two months—I swore to myself that I'd never eat at another free buffet on ladies night. And then I probably wished for death … which, unfortunately, had already been granted to me. My best friend Arnitra and I had gone to a new club where the music was supposed to be more than just rap and with DJ's who knew how to mix dance, hip hop, and techno. Happy hour included a free buffet that at the time I thought was banging. But somewhere between the sesame chicken wings and lasagna, the shit they called food must have gone rank. I sat up quickly and spewed into the toilet bowl. Just thinking about food was making me weak, and I started feeling light-headed again. I'm not saying that I have many blackouts because of drinking, but I wasn't worried about it. I certainly didn't equate it to being dead. The next time that I opened my eyes I had a hellafied hangover. My ears were ringing, and everything looked strange and bright. I flushed the toilet before I got sick again and took a long hot shower. I was planning to cra
