My phone buzzed with text messages, then phone calls several times, but I didn’t answer them. They weren’t from Aria or Opal, so it didn’t matter.
The morning sky turned to afternoon and still I lay there; I couldn’t move. If I moved, more shit would happen to me, the world would find something else to throw my way. So I lay there. The afternoon sky turned to dusk, and I heard the front door open and close. Aria was home, and I knew she would come looking for me, knowing she saw my car. Sure enough, 10 minutes later the door opened and her head popped in.
“There you are. Why are you in here?”
I didn’t answer.
“Are you sleeping?”
I was glad my back was to the door; I pretended to be asleep.
She stood there for a few more minutes, then closed the door quietly so as not to wake me. I didn’t want to talk to anyone not right now, not for a long while.
The dusk sky turned to evening, and there was a soft knock and Aria stuck her head in again, saying softly that Trevor was here and wanted to come in.
“Did something happen, Dacey?” her voice wavered.
I didn’t have a chance to reply because he came in the room and asked Aria to give us some privacy.
She didn’t know, so she closed the door and left.
“Dacey, why haven’t you answered my text or calls? I’ve been worried.”
I still had my back turned to him, and he didn’t make an effort to face me…I wanted everything to go back to normal and I was silently wishing for; because the world couldn’t shit on me this much in three months, could it? It wasn’t this mean, was it?
“Why are you here?”
“I wanted to check on you and make sure you were OK, and I want to finish our talk.”
“I’m alive, and talk.” I avoided using the word “OK” because I was far from OK.
So far from OK, I would never be OK.
First let me say that this is the first book that I read from this author.
Let me just say that when I started to read this book I did not know what to expect. But I could say that I like the book I like the characters, I'm gone keep this sweet and short since I don't want to give anything away.
