The Currior's New Tyrant
Connie fell in love with the strange girl from down the block, but the girl who innocently captured his heart isn't so innocent. One lazy afternoon, he discovers that Violet has been sabotaging her father's relationships. When she comes clean about every horrid thing she's done since her mother's mysterious death, Connie is faced with the moral dilemma: does he walk away when she needs help, or does he help his love get away with murder?
“Sadly no. It’s much darker than that, Connie. How old are you now?”
“Fourteen. Same as you.”
“Oh, yes. The last few years have been strange, haven’t they?”
“Just a bit. No more than usual, I suppose.”
“And what do you think of my father?”
“He’s fine. He’s always been very nice to me.”
“I have a secret that I have been keeping from you, Connie.”
“You said that already.” Why is she asking these questions? She doesn’t seem to be listening to the answers.
“I did … yes.”
I shrugged off her aloofness. “A secret about your father?”
“Well, sort of. Mostly, it’s about you. I mean, there’s a part about me, but I don’t think you will like it very much.”
Certainly, I had no idea what the secret could be. I stared at her with confusion etched across my brows. How did it involve me?
