She was supposed to be my forever.
Instead, I became her worst enemy.
I fell for the one girl I could never have…
And it destroyed us both.
I did a bad, bad thing.
But she isn’t exactly innocent either.
When I’m faced with the ultimate choice – Let her die or save her – I grab her and run.
She calls me a monster. The devil himself.
No one will take her from me.
She’s mine to punish.
Mine to keep… forever.
I stare up at the blood-painted ceiling of the shop. This Stop & Shop I used to call my home. Its wooden floors are stained with soot as the wallpaper and everything in between burns to a crisp.What went down here, in this town, never should have happened.

Immense pain.

Unrelenting suffering.

Death might have been quick, but the mark it left on this place … on me … is permanent.

And it’s all because of me.

My actions. Every misstep. Every obsession and every desire.

It all led to this moment.

None of it should have ever happened. Not me, not my fiery rage. None of it … But especially not her.

Dixie Burrell. The one girl I always wanted but could never have. Not truly. Not fully. Never completely mine, even though I tried so fucking hard.

Damn … I even killed for her.

And it fucking ruined us both.

I should’ve never set my eyes on her. Should’ve never let her get close and witness the real me. The dark monster hiding within.

She should’ve never stepped foot in this shop all those years ago. Should’ve never opened her mouth in front of me and spoken a single word with that sweet, sinful voice of hers.

Because with her sassy stubbornness, that gorgeous body, and fascinating mind she left her mark on my heart and tainted my very essence … Blackened my soul until there was nothing left but fire and ash.

And now she’ll be my undoing.

I sit down on a chair and witness the onslaught around me, the beautiful chaos of the smoke filling the air and the flames licking the windows. I don’t intend to move. Not one inch.

I’ve set my memories on fire.

And with them I’ll burn too.

I know, I messed up my blog! LOL

Okay, so I tried something new and it went absolutely, embarrassingly, and so, SO terribly wrong… [BLUSH] I think I sorted it, but I got so disheartened I went away and hid.

So, I’m getting back on track and blogging properly again. No shortcuts for me. Clearly they don’t work. No, it’s a long hard flog, I mean, slog, from now on.

And in case you wondered, I am still writing in the background…

I’ve actually done a few CampNaNoWrimos and the November NaNoWriMo is just around the corner, so you will be hearing more from me.

Lucky, lucky, lucky you!

Oops! I’ve Been Naughty : And not in a good way…


Nothing to do with this post, I just love it because it mentions my Princess status, and of course, it’s Princess Pink. Yep, I’m easily pleased… 

I’ve totally been so busy (actually writing), I’ve kind of forgotten about my lovely blog readers!  Well, you’ve not entirely been out of my mind…  but I must admit I’m feeling rather guilty now.  I didn’t realise how long I’d left you.

So, want a chance to get your own back and keep tabs on how much I write?  If you’re an author, would you like to join me in this torture superb way of churning out heaps more words and achieving your writing goals in a rather competitive, but fun environment?

Go on, you know you want to…

I found this perfect place to do writing sprints live. Yes, LIVE. And I’m offering to share my secret writing cage with anyone interested, all you have to do is show your interest by VOTING on this Facebook poll.  Yep, I’m glutton for punishment.

But hurry, there are only 3 days left to have your say!

What will you choose? The “Full on Hardcore” option, or the “I’m so laid back I’m horizontal” (very unwise mode).

Thank you luvvies!


P.S. If you’re not already a Facebook Fiend, why not? lol  You know how much it means to be to have your support!  😉
