Noxious, Book 1
They say that the apple never really falls far from the tree—no matter how withered the branch or how rotten the core. Don’t get me wrong, I’m sure that my dad is a great guy, but he never counted on me showing up. None of them did, and that’s exactly what’s going to make this so fun.
We won’t talk about my mother because chances are, he doesn’t even remember who she is. To most people that’s important, but not if you’re a Meyer. I just want to make amends with him before I move on—not that I’ve done him wrong, it’s more the other way around. He was too busy getting his rocks off to be a father and that’s understandable. I don’t fault him for it. Hell, I would have done the same thing.
Guess we’ll see if he lives up to the legends I’ve heard about him because if I’m going this far, I expect fireworks.
This better be worth my time. I didn’t want to drive hundreds of miles just to stare at someone that’s supposed to be some kind of god. But my partner-in-crime promises that whatever happens will be something neither of us will ever forget, and I never could say no to a good adventure.
I’ve heard weird rumors that his father lives with another man—someone he “won” from some girl they both used to hang out with, and honestly, that’s the only reason I came. Besides knowing that the jackal would lose what little grip he has left on reality if his father doesn’t meet his expectations, I’m curious about how someone could be so easily manipulated. Lucky for me, I’m not one of those people.
If either of them find me, they’re going to be pissed off. I just hate that they’re always going places without me when I want to go too. He told me that he was my friend but he slights me at every turn. She said she has nothing against me but she acts like I don’t exist when he’s around. What’s so special about him, anyway? It can’t be his personality because that sucks something fierce. He’s the most arrogant person I’ve ever met in my life, but if I looked like him, I guess I would be as well.
He seemed really excited when they hopped in her car to drive to… I don’t even know where we’re headed. I’m just lucky enough that they haven’t found me yet and maybe when they do, they won’t mind. After all, where am I supposed to go when I’m in a place I won’t even know?
Mephitic, Book 2
The best and worst idea I’ve ever had blew up in my face big time. Willa and Dexter are gone; traded away for the worst man I’ve ever met in my life and the most obsessive little fiend that would sooner die than not have his full attention.
I’m on the road again, but it’s nowhere I want to be. I don’t even know where the destination is exactly. All I do know is that I’d rather be anywhere than here or there. My friends… I’m sorry.
I thought my luck had run out on the curb of a rest area somewhere in Pennsylvania. I’ve never been so wrong. Someone found me, tucked me under his arm, and promised me a great time—and for the most part, I suffered one disappointment after the other. Until him. He sees me, knows me in ways that I don’t even know myself, and when he smiles at me… I’ll never let him go.
If it’s not the emo kids at the stupid church, it’s something else. I spent most of my time happy at home with nothing but my… friend… to pass the time. That was all I ever thought I needed to be honest, and I know damn well, it’s all he’s needed. I mean anyone that comes into my crosshairs usually knows they’re in for a time as magnificent as the sight they’re beholding, and I like to do my best to show them that.
Of course, that’s not to say that I don’t like to have my own fun. In my special ways, that is. But now I’ve got the chance to show up at the doorstep of someone that’s haunted me for longer than I care to admit. What’s one more road trip to the pits of hell to see this through to the end. Am I right?
Viperous, Book 3
She’s built something great and all are welcome. The only problem with that is that he thinks he’s welcomed too. She doesn’t remember him, or at least that’s how she likes to live her new life. I can see it in his eyes. The disgust, the disdain… the jealousy.
I’ll do everything I can to protect her from all of the evil in the world. Including my own father.
Past lives are in the past for a reason. I’ve been blessed with so much more than I used to be, and I can only hope that I can do the same for everyone that comes to my home in the desert. A place where only love and light shine—where the terrible things I used to do and be were left to rot in the proverbial rearview mirror.
He doesn’t like that I don’t remember him or his friend. He seems to think that I’m lying to him. I do recall some of the trauma but not all of it and I never want to again. Maybe he’ll learn to forgive and forget. Maybe he won’t. Either way, I’ll lead him to the light and show him that he can be so much more than what he is, and in the end, he’ll thank me for it.
Blondes and junkies have always been my no-go’s. Everyone has something that makes their skin crawl, and those are mine. Granted, things could be worse when it comes down to it, but I’ve seen more than enough. After I came home, I saw the disappointment in his eyes—and felt it like a kick to the face when he accused me of being the one thing I never have been.
Back out to the holy land I go to get some answers. I don’t understand how someone can be so happy living a lie and forget the past as quickly as she did. I promised him that I’d bring her back and I will. All’s well that ends well, right? Guess it depends on who’s ending you’re looking at.
