Introduction
Cassidy Jenkins hadn’t seen her childhood friend, Daniella Thompson, since their high school days. When she suddenly receives a call saying that she is coming for a visit, Cassidy is overjoyed. But Daniella has learned of Cassidy’s recent marriage to Tyler Jenkins, and is jealous of Cassidy’s happiness. When Daniella tries to come between Cassidy and Tyler by making advances towards Cassidy’s husband, Tyler. When Cassidy discovers Daniella’s secret and the real reason Daniella is here, can Cassidy forgive her friend?
Chapter 1
“Hello?” Cassidy Jenkins answered her cell.
“Cassidy?” Daniella asked.
“Daniella?” Cassidy asked surprised to hear from her childhood friend. “I was just wondering about you?”
“I just want to let you know that I was coming for a visit.”
“You are? That’s great, Daniella! You can meet my new husband, Tyler!” Cassidy exclaimed excitedly.
“Yeah, that would be nice!” Daniella replied in a somber tone.
“Well, Daniella, I hate to break off our call, but I have to be getting to work now.” Cassidy told her.
“Yeah, sure! See you in a few days!” Daniella said, hanging up.
Cassidy hung up and began to get ready for work as a paralegal in her father’s law firm, she couldn’t believe she would see Daniella again. It’s been so long—too long! One thing bothered her though—their rivalry over the quarterback James Mitchell, whom both Cassidy and Daniella both had eyes for. It had been an ugly rivalry to which Daniella won the heart of James when the two married right after they graduated high school. Cassidy never heard from Daniella again—until now!

Daniella had packed her few belongings that James had let her have. When Daniella and James first married, it seemed the two were inseparable. They were the picture of happiness—that is for the first two months. Then James changed. He became possessive over Daniella. He controlled her every move, from the friends she had to the family she could talk to.
Things escalated further when James began beating Daniella and leaving bruises on her, even putting her in the hospital a few times. Daniella thought she was a dead woman—until a month ago when Daniella finally had enough and shot and killed James when he was sleeping.
The next morning, she woke in a daze to the news of Cassidy’s marriage to celebrity architect to the stars, Tyler Jenkins. After Daniella’s ordeal the last 10 years, Daniella seethed with anger toward Cassidy. How could she end up happy when she was miserable? It wasn’t fair that Cassidy got what she wanted and she ended up in a nightmare of a marriage. Daniella blamed Cassidy for her marriage woes. After all, Cassidy gave up on James way to easily, and Daniella wanted Cassidy to pay.
That’s when Daniella made up her mind to ruin Cassidy’s happiness at all costs. Daniella intended to steal Tyler away from Cassidy and make Cassidy pay for everything she went through. Her troubled life was Cassidy’s fault.
Chapter 2
“Dani!” Cassidy shrieked with excitement when she spotted her friend in the airport while waiting for her.
“Cassi.” Dani shrieked with fake excitement as she gave her friend a hug, while secretly eyeing Cassidy’s husband, Tyler.
“Oh, Dani, it’s been so long.” Cassidy said sadly. “How did we ever lose touch with each other?”
“I know.” Daniella lied. “I’m sorry for everything.’
Daniella and Cassidy talked about old times while waiting for her luggage at the baggage claim. When it finally came out, Daniella pointed it out and Tyler, like the true gentleman, picked up Daniella’s luggage and carried it to his and Cassidy’s car. Daniella was amazed that they had a driver. No, more like jealous!
As Max drove Cassidy, Tyler and Daniella back to Tyler and Cassidy’s mansion, Tyler poured Cassidy and Daniella a drink from the mini bar in the limousine. As the three enjoyed the drink, Daniella thought about her revenge on Cassidy and how to make the moves on Tyler. He was a man Daniella could fall for with his rugged good looks and chiseled features, those gorgeous blue eyes the color of the ocean—Daniella could get lost in them forever.
“Dani?” Cassidy spoke, breaking Daniella free of her thoughts.
“What? I’m sorry Cassi. I must have been lost in thought.” Daniella lied, as she continued to think about having Tyler all to herself.
“What do you want to do first when we get home?” Cassidy repeated.
“Oh, surprise me!” Daniella told her friend.
“Well, why don’t you two take a swim out in our pool while I make you two some lunch.” Tyler suggested.
“That’s sounds good, honey.” Cassidy said, giving him a kiss on the lips.
Max had just pulled into the drive of Cassidy and Tyler’s mansion. Tyler grabbed Daniella’s bags and followed Cassidy and Daniella up the front steps to the front door as Cassidy pushed the code for the security alarm.
Once inside, Cassidy led Daniella to her room—actually wing—that she would have all to herself. Amazed as she was by Cassidy’s success, Daniella couldn’t wait to take all of this from Cassidy for payment for all her hurt.
Daniella still couldn’t believe that Cassidy managed to get everything while she lost all she had.
“I’ll wait for you out by the pool.” Cassidy said to Daniella.
“Okay. I’ll get dressed and be out there in a few.” Daniella promised.
But first, Daniella had to put the first part of her plan into motion.
Chapter 3
Daniella dressed in her sexiest bikini…a blue bikini…and threw on her coverup. Daniella held her long locks up as she tried to decide whether she should put it up or let hang loose around her shoulders. After a few minutes, she decided she looked sexier with it hanging loose around her shoulders. Satisfied with her look, Daniella grabbed her cell and headed downstairs to meet Cassidy and Tyler out by their pool.
“What took you so long?” Cassidy asked her when Daniella finally emerged from the sliding glass door.
“Oh, just had to get ready.” Daniella expressed as she flung her coverup into the lounge chair and flipped her locks in Tyler’s direction.
“You. . .look nice.” Tyler commented, trying not to get excited by Daniella’s appearance, as hot as he thought she looked.
“Yeah, Daniella, you look great, as always.” Cassidy said, a bit jealous.
Daniella’s performance brought Cassidy back to their high school days. Daniella always seemed to get the guys, even the ones that Cassidy was interested in. She remembered how Daniella took advantage of the fact that she also liked James Mitchell and managed to land James before she could tell him how she felt. Now that she was married to Tyler, it seemed to Cassidy that Daniella was trying to do the same? But Cassidy shook it off thinking that Daniella was above that now. . .we were all adults. . .no time to play childish games we played back in high school.
Daniella went in the pool giving a show for Tyler. And as Tyler loved Cassidy, he couldn’t help but look at Daniella. She was hot and sexy, not that Cassidy wasn’t either. But there was something about Daniella. . .something that he couldn’t take his eyes off of her. He felt guilty for the way he looked at her. . .like he was cheating on Cassidy. . .but. . .he just couldn’t take his eyes off her.
Daniella swam in Cassidy’s pool, all the while, watching Tyler. She liked that he couldn’t take his eyes off her. . .her plan was working. Soon, Tyler would be all hers. And Cassidy would be left out in the cold. . .just as Cassidy deserved. . .
Cassidy, not wanting to watch Daniella’s obvious game, made an excuse to go into the house and get some snacks for them to munch on. When she got into the house, Cassidy opened up the refrigerator and took out the ribs that Tyler would barbecue for their dinner. Cassidy knew Daniella liked barbecued ribs. She placed the ribs on the cart along with the barbecue sauce for the ribs, the spatula, and salt.
When she brought the ribs outside for Tyler to start grilling, she couldn’t help but notice Daniella was hanging all over Tyler as he fired up the grill. Even after a swim, Daniella looked great. She couldn’t help but think that Daniella was after Tyler. . .she hoped she was wrong. . .but she just wasn’t so sure.
“So, Dani, what brings you out here?” Tyler asked, trying to keep his eyes off her gorgeous body.
“My husband died recently and I needed a break.” Dani explained. “I haven’t seen Cassie in awhile so I thought ‘why not?’”
“Well, I think Cassie is glad to see you. . .and catch up.”
“So how did you and Cassie meet?” Dani asked with mock enthusiasm.
“Our jobs.” Tyler explained. “I was an architect to the stars and Cassie was an interior designer we were both working for the same celebrity on their house.”
“Was it love at first sight?”
“No, Cassie couldn’t stand me at first.”
“Oh, really?”
“It took me months to get Cassie to warm up to me.”
“Yeah, Cassie always did seem to be like that.” Daniella reflected back on their high school days.
“But I finally won her over and I couldn’t be happier.”
“Yeah, Cassie does seem quite happy.” Daniella remarked, a hint of jealousy in her voice.
Cassidy came out with the cart so Tyler to begin grilling the ribs. She couldn’t help that Daniella seemed a bit too comfortable chatting with Tyler.
“Hey, you two. . .are you hungry?” Cassidy asked, as if trying to break the ice.
“Yeah, it’s about time you brought those ribs out.” Tyler joked.
“Mmmmmm, my favorite.” Daniella remarked.
“I know. And Tyler makes the best ribs.” Cassidy told her.
“I can’t wait to try them.” Daniella licked her lips seductively, catching a glimpse of Tyler eyeing her.
After twenty minutes of uncomfortable silence watching Tyler grilled the ribs, Tyler finally brought the ribs to the table where Cassidy and Daniella were sitting.
“Ribs are ready!” Tyler announced.
“Yeah. I can’t wait!” Daniella said as Tyler put a rib smothered in barbecue sauce onto Daniella’s plate.
“Mmmmmm.” Daniella said, as she took a bite immediately. “These are so-o-o-o good, Tyler. Cassidy is right. You do make the best ribs.”
The three of them enjoyed dinner and spent a few more hours by the poolside before turning in for the night. As Cassidy watched Daniella head up to her wing, Cassidy and Tyler got into a heated spat.
“Really, Tyler?” Cassidy accused. “You couldn’t take your eyes off of her!”
“What do you mean, Cassie?!” Tyler defended himself.
“The way you looked at her?”
“She’s a beautiful woman, but that doesn’t mean I want her?!”
“She was doing it on purpose!” Cassidy accused. “She wants you! It’s our high school days all over again!”
“Oh, come on, Cassie! You’re paranoid!”
“I don’t think so!” Cassie warned Tyler. “She has an agenda and you’re it!”
“Don’t be silly, Cassie!” Tyler told her. “You know I only have eyes for you!”
“But you couldn’t take your eyes off Dani all afternoon!”
“I can’t take your accusations!” Tyler said, storming off.
Cassidy couldn’t help it. She knew Daniella was up to her old tricks. She couldn’t believe that Tyler couldn’t see it.
Chapter 4
Daniella couldn’t be happier as she listened to Cassidy and Tyler fighting. All she cared about was that her plan was working perfectly. Cassidy was making the usual assumptions she did back in high school. And Tyler didn’t believe her. Soon, Tyler would be all hers. . .and Cassidy would be left out in the cold. . .just where she belonged.

As Daniella made her way downstairs to work on the next plot in her scheme, Cassidy fumed upstairs after Tyler had marched out of their room and into one of the other rooms.

Tyler, on the other hand, decided he wasn’t going to lose any sleep over Cassidy’s paranoia. It was ridiculous that Daniella was coming on to him. She was just his wife’s friend from high school. He had no interest in her. Why couldn’t Cassidy see that?

As Tyler tried to sleep, he heard the door open and someone come in.

“Cassidy?” Tyler questioned the intruder coming in. “Come to your senses, did you?”

But there was no answer, and assuming the intruder left, Tyler tried to go back to sleep. But instead, he felt a warm hand caress his body, and assuming it was Cassidy, turned over and planted a kiss on her.

“I’m sorry, Tyler.” Daniella lied. “I had no idea there was anybody in here.”

“What are you doing in here?” Tyler said, when he realized it wasn’t Cassidy he just kissed.

“I had to find another room to sleep in.” was Daniella’s excuse. “The sheets in my bed were all wet when I went to pull down the blankets.”

“I’m sorry to hear that, Dani.” Tyler apologized.

“I’ll go check out what’s wrong.” Tyler told her. “Just to make sure there’s no leak.”

“No, you don’t have to do that.” Daniella told him. “I’m sure the sheets will be dry in the morning.”

“It’s no problem, really.” Tyler offered. “I pride myself on having a leak-proof home and if you have a leak, I need to fix it.”

“Can’t you do it in the morning?” Daniella asked him, hoping to buy some time before she could get back to her room.

“Okay, I will wait until morning.” Tyler promised her.

“Thank you, Tyler. You’re such a doll.” Daniella said sweetly.

“I think I will go sleep in my own room with my wife, where I belong.” Tyler said.

As Tyler went back up to his and Cassidy’s room, Daniella made her way back to her room and crawled into the bed, knowing it wouldn’t be long before she had Tyler right where she wanted him. . .and Cassidy would be alone. . .just like her.
Chapter 5
Cassidy woke to find Tyler sleeping next to her, snoring as loudly as ever. It kept Cassidy awake and she couldn’t sleep ever since Tyler came back into the room. Not wanting to give into Tyler, Cassidy got up and put on her bathrobe to prepare breakfast. Cooking always managed to make Cassidy feel better.
But when she got downstairs to the kitchen, Daniella was already there dressed in a sexy black dress, cooking breakfast.
“Daniella, what are you doing in my kitchen?” Cassidy demanded.
“Well, I saw how busy you and Tyler were, so I wanted to help out a little.”Daniella told her sweetly.
“Well, I don’t need your help.” Cassidy spat out. “Especially with you looking like that!”
“What’s wrong with how I look?” Daniella asked innocently.
“That dress?!” Cassidy raged. “How many people cook in a sexy black dress?!”
“Well, I had a prior commitment so I got ready and thought I would make you and Tyler dinner before I left.” Daniella explained in her sugar-sweet voice.
“Yeah, I bet!” Cassidy screamed at her. “Why don’t you admit you’re trying to take Tyler away from me!”
As Cassidy threw out accusations, Daniella continued cooking, remaining calm. Cassidy’s ranting woke Tyler, who was still asleep upstairs, came downstairs to see what all the commotion was.
“What is going on down here?!” Tyler exploded.
“I was just making you two some breakfast and Cassie just flew off the handle?” Daniella said in her sugary sweet voice. “And she flew into a rage.”
“Cassie, what is wrong with you?” Tyler asked. “She’s just making breakfast.”
“Dressed like that!”
“I told your wife that I had somewhere to go, but thought I would make you two some breakfast before I go.” Daniella explained as sweetly as possible.
“There, Cassie, she’s just making breakfast for us.” Tyler tried to get Cassie to be rational.
“She’s trying to take you away! Who makes breakfast in that attire!”
“Cassie, she just told us she had somewhere to be after making breakfast.” Tyler continued to reason with Cassie.
“You know what, Tyler, I’m leaving.” Cassie yelled. “If you’re going to take her side, you can have her!”
Cassidy stormed out of the house and to her car and drove off. She had to get out. Drive somewhere—anywhere, but at home. Daniella was ruining their life and Tyler couldn’t see it.
Meanwhile, Daniella had breakfast ready and on the table when Tyler came back. She was sitting at the table waiting for Tyler and Cassidy to join her.
“Breakfast is served.” Daniella told Tyler when he came back to the kitchen after failing to reason with Cassidy.
“Thanks, Daniella.” Tyler told her as he sat down to eat.
“Where’s Cassie?” Daniella asked him, secretly happy inside.
“She left.” Was all Tyler said.
“I’m sorry, Tyler.” Daniella said as she squeezed his hand.
“It’s not your fault.”
“Is there anything I can do?”
“No.”
With Cassidy gone, it was time to make her move. Daniella soothed Tyler’s hand, as she inched her hand further up his arm, rubbing it soothingly. Enjoying the touch, Tyler let Daniella caress him, as he was hurting from Cassidy’s tirade.
Still hurting from Cassidy leaving so angrily and her irrational behavior, Tyler kissed Daniella. Daniella had Tyler right where she wanted him. Tyler grabbed Daniella and kissed her, as the two ended up in a passionate kiss.
While Daniella and Tyler were getting passionate, Cassidy was driving so fast as thoughts of her argument came back to her, making her more angry that Tyler would side with Daniella. The past was coming back to haunt her.
Daniella was coming between her and Tyler just like when they were in high school when Daniella came between her and any guy she was interested in.
Cassidy, seeing the oncoming car through her angry tears, swerved to the side of the road and went off into a ditch.
Chapter 6
As Daniela was busy seducing an unsuspecting Tyler, Cassidy lay unconscious in her car in the ditch with her head on the steering wheel.
A passerby who was making his usual jog, found Cassidy’s car and called 9-1-1 to get the paramedics on the scene.
Then he checked Cassidy’s wrist for a pulse and found one, although very faint.
The paramedics arrived on scene within 10 minutes and rushed to see how Cassidy was. They check her vitals: Temp—98.9, Pulse—110, Respirations—24, Blood Pressure—190/99, O2 sats—70 and falling fast.
The paramedics put an oxygen mask on Cassidy to help get more oxygen to Cassidy’s brain. They reported Cassidy’s condition to the hospital via radio before putting her in the ambulance for transport to the hospital.
“Do you know this lady?” the paramedic asked the jogger.
“No. I found her car while out on a jog.” The jogger asked.
“Well, does she have any identification?”
“I saw a purse in the car.” The jogger told the paramedic. “It said Cassidy Jenkins.”
“Thank you sir.” The paramedic said. “We will give her husband a call.”
As Cassidy was on her way to the hospital, the paramedic riding in the ambulance gave Tyler a call.
Back at Tyler’s home, Daniela was about to unbutton her blouse to give Tyler a show after kissing him passionately when the phone near the bed began ringing.
“I’m sorry, Daniela, but I must get this. It could be my employer.” Tyler said, feeling guilty about what he was about to do with his wife’s friend.
“Hello?” Tyler said, after picking up the phone by the bed.
“Mr. Jenkins?” the paramedic said.
“Yes, this Tyler Jenkins.”
“I’m afraid to tell you, but your wife is being taken to the hospital.”
“The hospital? What happened?” Tyler asked the paramedic.
“There’s been an accident. Your wife is holding her own, but is unconscious.”
“I’m on my way!” Tyler said, hanging up and pushing Daniela off the bed and putting his pants and shirt back on, making Daniela a little ticked off.
“Can’t you forget about Cassidy?” Daniela said selfishly.
“Who the hell are you?” Tyler accused. “I thought you were her best friend?”
“Oh fine. Have it your way.” Daniela said with irritation.
As Tyler left Daniela alone on the bed, Daniela felt hurt that Cassidy always seemed to win.
“Damn you, Cassidy!” Daniela said. “You won’t win this!”
Chapter 7
Daniela was left to sulk after Tyler fled to the hospital to see Cassidy. When he got there Cassidy was admitted to her room where she was resting peacefully. Or so the doctors and nurses thought. But Cassidy was having anything but a peaceful sleep. Despite being in a coma, Cassidy was wracked with nightmares that Tyler had left her for Daniela.
When Tyler held Cassidy’s hand, Cassidy’s eyes twitched. She wanted to wake up but something was preventing her from doing so.
Suddenly, Cassidy’s monitor started beeping and Cassidy was in cardiac arrest as doctors and nurses entered Cassidy’s room with a crash cart to begin CPR on Cassidy.
A nurse’s aide shuffled Tyler out of Cassidy’s room, despite Tyler’s objection to remain in the room.
Several minutes later—it seemed like an eternity to Tyler—the doctor came out to give Tyler the news:
“Cassidy was poisoned.”
“Poisoned?” Tyler asked in surprise. “Who would do that?” Then he thought of Daniela. Could she have done this?
“We have given your wife the antidote and are waiting to see if she responds to the treatment.” The doctor informed Tyler, just as Daniela arrived to check on her friend.
“Is Cassidy alright?” Daniela asked sweetly, almost too sweetly it made Tyler suspicious.
“Mr, Jenkins will give you the details.” The doctor told Daniela before walking away.
“Doctor, can I go see her?” Tyler asked the departing doctor.
Tyler felt a hand on his shoulder as Daniela tried to comfort him, but he pulled away from her.
“Leave me alone.”
“I just want to help.”
“After trying to seduce me?”
“I couldn’t help myself.” Daniela defended herself.
“I love my wife.”
“I know. And I’m sorry.”
“Well, if you’re so sorry then you’ll pack your things and leave our home.” Tyler lashed out at her.
“Okay. If that’s how you feel.”
Tyler didn’t say a word. He just left her standing there as he walked on to see Cassidy.
“Fine. Have it your way, Tyler! For now!” Daniela whispered to herself, as she went back to Tyler and Cassidy’s home and packed her things and then headed for a motel.
Chapter 8
Daniela went back to her motel room for now. She may have lost this round, but she hadn’t lost the battle. She would get her revenge on Cassidy. Tyler would be hers…
“Enjoy your husband for now, Cassidy. Soon! Tyler will be mine!” Daniela vowed.
Tyler arrived at the hospital and was about to head up to Cassidy’s room when a nurse stopped him.
“Mr. Jenkins, can we have a word with you?” the RN said to Tyler.
“Is something wrong?”
“Yes. But I don’t know how to tell you this?”
“Well, just tell me.”
“Your wife has taken a turn for the worse.”
“Worse. I don’t understand. I thought she was doing better?”
“She was. Until just an hour ago.”
“An hour ago…what do you mean? Why didn’t anyone call me?”
“We did but some woman intercepted the call and said you were busy.”
“Dani!” Tyler thought to himself. “Damn her! She was going to be sorry!”
“What happened?” Tyler asked the RN.
“Cassidy is in a coma.”
“A coma?” Tyler said, surprised. “What happened?”
“We’re not sure, but we’re looking into it.” The RN told him.
“This is an outrage.” Tyler said. “I want my wife removed from this hospital!”
“Mr. Jenkins, please calm down.” The RN tried to soothe him.
“No, you calm down! My wife was doing okay and now you tell me she’s in a coma!”
Daniela had arrived to hear the conversation between Tyler and the RN and smiled at her geniusness. Tyler would never suspect that she did this. Now, with Cassidy in a coma for an indetermined time, she could work her charm on Tyler. Soon, Tyler would be hers!
“Mr. Jenkins, please. Calm down.”
“I’m sorry, but I’m starting…..” Tyler began, but Daniela made her entrance to do her job calming Tyler down.
“Tyler.” Daniela said.
“Dani? What are you doing here?”
“I was coming to see Cassie and I couldn’t help but overhear the news.” Daniela said in her sugary sweet voice.
“I can’t believe Cassie is in a coma?” Tyler whined.
“Let’s go see her.” Dani suggested.
Daniela winked at the RN to tell her she would handle everything from here, as she and Tyler walked to Cassidy’s hospital room.
It was working! Her plot to put have Cassidy in a coma! She had to thank the person who gave her the drug that put Cassidy in a coma. The hospital staff would not suspect the drug in Cassidy’s body. Now, Cassidy would be out of commission and she could make Tyler hers.

Synopsis
Kasey, Laurie and Carly have just graduated from high school and are looking for a good time before adulthood sets in and they have to get jobs and go to college.

Will the girls regret their decision or will all go well?

Chapter 1
“Kasey, you had a great idea going on this road trip.” Laurie told her bestie since kindergarten.
“Well, I thought we needed one last hurrah before we headed off to college and jobs.”
“I’m just glad you invited me along.” Carly told her new best friends.
“Why wouldn’t we, Carly?” Kasey asked.
“Well, you and Laurie have known each other like, forever.”
“What’s that got to do with it?” Laurie asked.
“Well, I’ve only been apart of the trio for a few months…..”
“Don’t worry. You’ll always be our bestie.” Kasey assured Carly.
“Thanks.” Carly told them gratefully.
The girls scrambled into Laurie’s purple VW Beetle and Laurie drove off for their big adventure.
They had been on the road for about 6 hours—Kasey and Carly asleep in the back seat. Laurie noticed the gas gauge was reaching empty and pulled off into the 7-11 that they had come along.
“Why did we stop?” Kasey asked groggily.
“We needed gas, so I pulled into this 7-ll to fill up.” Laurie explained.
“Where are we?” Carly asked, waking up when she noticed they had stopped.
“I’m getting gas and munchies. You two want to come along?”
“Yes.” Kasey and Carly said simultaneously as they hopped out of the Beetle and ran into the 7-ll, while Laurie pumped gas into the Beetle.
When the 3 girls were inside the 7-ll, a shady-looking guy was watching the girls as they paid for their purchases.
When they had come out of the store, the mysterious looking guy feigned a fainting spell as Kasey, the ever-do-gooder, rushed to see if she could help.
A few shakes with Kasey’s hand, and the man woke up.
“What happened?” the man asked, faking the spell.
“Looks as if you fainted?” Kasey told him.
“Gee, how embarrassed this is.” The man said, blushing.
“Well, do you want a ride wherever you’re going?” Carly asked as Laurie shook her head at her, but it was too late. The man happily accepted.
The four of them got into the Beetle and drove off.
The man checked his pack to see if the gun was still there.

“Hello?” Cassidy Jenkins answered her cell.
“Cassidy?” Daniella asked.
“Daniella?” Cassidy asked surprised to hear from her childhood friend. “I was just wondering about you?”
“I just want to let you know that I was coming for a visit.”
“You are? That’s great, Daniella! You can meet my new husband, Tyler!” Cassidy exclaimed excitedly.

“Dani!” Cassidy shrieked with excitement when she spotted her friend in the airport while waiting for her.
“Cassi.” Dani shrieked with fake excitement as she gave her friend a hug, while secretly eyeing Cassidy’s husband, Tyler.
“Oh, Dani, it’s been so long.” Cassidy said sadly. “How did we ever lose touch with each other?”
“I know.” Daniella lied. “I’m sorry for everything.’
Daniella and Cassidy talked about old times while waiting for her luggage at the baggage claim. When it finally came out, Daniella pointed it out and Tyler, like the true gentleman, picked up Daniella’s luggage and carried it to his and Cassidy’s car. Daniella was amazed that they had a driver. No, more like jealous!
As Max drove Cassidy, Tyler and Daniella back to Tyler and Cassidy’s mansion, Tyler poured Cassidy and Daniella a drink from the mini bar in the limousine. As the three enjoyed the drink, Daniella thought about her revenge on Cassidy and how to make the moves on Tyler. He was a man Daniella could fall for with his rugged good looks and chiseled features, those gorgeous blue eyes the color of the ocean—Daniella could get lost in them forever.
“Dani?” Cassidy spoke, breaking Daniella free of her thoughts.
“What? I’m sorry Cassi. I must have been lost in thought.” Daniella lied, as she continued to think about having Tyler all to herself.
“What do you want to do first when we get home?” Cassidy repeated.
“Oh, surprise me!” Daniella told her friend.
“Well, why don’t you two take a swim out in our pool while I make you two some lunch.” Tyler suggested.
“That’s sounds good, honey.” Cassidy said, giving him a kiss on the lips.
Max had just pulled into the drive of Cassidy and Tyler’s mansion. Tyler grabbed Daniella’s bags and followed Cassidy and Daniella up the front steps to the front door as Cassidy pushed the code for the security alarm.
Once inside, Cassidy led Daniella to her room—actually wing—that she would have all to herself. Amazed as she was by Cassidy’s success, Daniella couldn’t wait to take all of this from Cassidy for payment for all her hurt.
Daniella still couldn’t believe that Cassidy managed to get everything while she lost all she had.
“I’ll wait for you out by the pool.” Cassidy said to Daniella.
“Okay. I’ll get dressed and be out there in a few.” Daniella promised.
But first, Daniella had to put the first part of her plan into motion.

Chapter 3
Daniella dressed in her sexiest bikini…a blue bikini…and threw on her coverup. Daniella held her long locks up as she tried to decide whether she should put it up or let hang loose around her shoulders. After a few minutes, she decided she looked sexier with it hanging loose around her shoulders. Satisfied with her look, Daniella grabbed her cell and headed downstairs to meet Cassidy and Tyler out by their pool.
“What took you so long?” Cassidy asked her when Daniella finally emerged from the sliding glass door.
“Oh, just had to get ready.” Daniella expressed as she flung her coverup into the lounge chair and flipped her locks in Tyler’s direction.
“You. . .look nice.” Tyler commented, trying not to get excited by Daniella’s appearance, as hot as he thought she looked.
“Yeah, Daniella, you look great, as always.” Cassidy said, a bit jealous.
Daniella’s performance brought Cassidy back to their high school days. Daniella always seemed to get the guys, even the ones that Cassidy was interested in. She remembered how Daniella took advantage of the fact that she also liked James Mitchell and managed to land James before she could tell him how she felt. Now that she was married to Tyler, it seemed to Cassidy that Daniella was trying to do the same? But Cassidy shook it off thinking that Daniella was above that now. . .we were all adults. . .no time to play childish games we played back in high school.
Daniella went in the pool giving a show for Tyler. And as Tyler loved Cassidy, he couldn’t help but look at Daniella. She was hot and sexy, not that Cassidy wasn’t either. But there was something about Daniella. . .something that he couldn’t take his eyes off of her. He felt guilty for the way he looked at her. . .like he was cheating on Cassidy. . .but. . .he just couldn’t take his eyes off her.
Daniella swam in Cassidy’s pool, all the while, watching Tyler. She liked that he couldn’t take his eyes off her. . .her plan was working. Soon, Tyler would be all hers. And Cassidy would be left out in the cold. . .just as Cassidy deserved. . .
Cassidy, not wanting to watch Daniella’s obvious game, made an excuse to go into the house and get some snacks for them to munch on. When she got into the house, Cassidy opened up the refrigerator and took out the ribs that Tyler would barbecue for their dinner. Cassidy knew Daniella liked barbecued ribs. She placed the ribs on the cart along with the barbecue sauce for the ribs, the spatula, and salt.
When she brought the ribs outside for Tyler to start grilling, she couldn’t help but notice Daniella was hanging all over Tyler as he fired up the grill. Even after a swim, Daniella looked great. She couldn’t help but think that Daniella was after Tyler. . .she hoped she was wrong. . .but she just wasn’t so sure.
“So, Dani, what brings you out here?” Tyler asked, trying to keep his eyes off her gorgeous body.
“My husband died recently and I needed a break.” Dani explained. “I haven’t seen Cassie in awhile so I thought ‘why not?’”
“Well, I think Cassie is glad to see you. . .and catch up.”
“So how did you and Cassie meet?” Dani asked with mock enthusiasm.
“Our jobs.” Tyler explained. “I was an architect to the stars and Cassie was an interior designer we were both working for the same celebrity on their house.”
“Was it love at first sight?”
“No, Cassie couldn’t stand me at first.”
“Oh, really?”
“It took me months to get Cassie to warm up to me.”
“Yeah, Cassie always did seem to be like that.” Daniella reflected back on their high school days.
“But I finally won her over and I couldn’t be happier.”
“Yeah, Cassie does seem quite happy.” Daniella remarked, a hint of jealousy in her voice.
Cassidy came out with the cart so Tyler to begin grilling the ribs. She couldn’t help that Daniella seemed a bit too comfortable chatting with Tyler.
“Hey, you two. . .are you hungry?” Cassidy asked, as if trying to break the ice.
“Yeah, it’s about time you brought those ribs out.” Tyler joked.
“Mmmmmm, my favorite.” Daniella remarked.
“I know. And Tyler makes the best ribs.” Cassidy told her.
“I can’t wait to try them.” Daniella licked her lips seductively, catching a glimpse of Tyler eyeing her.
After twenty minutes of uncomfortable silence watching Tyler grilled the ribs, Tyler finally brought the ribs to the table where Cassidy and Daniella were sitting.
“Ribs are ready!” Tyler announced.
“Yeah. I can’t wait!” Daniella said as Tyler put a rib smothered in barbecue sauce onto Daniella’s plate.
“Mmmmmm.” Daniella said, as she took a bite immediately. “These are so-o-o-o good, Tyler. Cassidy is right. You do make the best ribs.”
The three of them enjoyed dinner and spent a few more hours by the poolside before turning in for the night. As Cassidy watched Daniella head up to her wing, Cassidy and Tyler got into a heated spat.
“Really, Tyler?” Cassidy accused. “You couldn’t take your eyes off of her!”
“What do you mean, Cassie?!” Tyler defended himself.
“The way you looked at her?”
“She’s a beautiful woman, but that doesn’t mean I want her?!”
“She was doing it on purpose!” Cassidy accused. “She wants you! It’s our high school days all over again!”
“Oh, come on, Cassie! You’re paranoid!”
“I don’t think so!” Cassie warned Tyler. “She has an agenda and you’re it!”
“Don’t be silly, Cassie!” Tyler told her. “You know I only have eyes for you!”
“But you couldn’t take your eyes off Dani all afternoon!”
“I can’t take your accusations!” Tyler said, storming off.
Cassidy couldn’t help it. She knew Daniella was up to her old tricks. She couldn’t believe that Tyler couldn’t see it.

Chapter 4
Daniella couldn’t be happier as she listened to Cassidy and Tyler fighting. All she cared about was that her plan was working perfectly. Cassidy was making the usual assumptions she did back in high school. And Tyler didn’t believe her. Soon, Tyler would be all hers. . .and Cassidy would be left out in the cold. . .just where she belonged.

As Daniella made her way downstairs to work on the next plot in her scheme, Cassidy fumed upstairs after Tyler had marched out of their room and into one of the other rooms.

Tyler, on the other hand, decided he wasn’t going to lose any sleep over Cassidy’s paranoia. It was ridiculous that Daniella was coming on to him. She was just his wife’s friend from high school. He had no interest in her. Why couldn’t Cassidy see that?

As Tyler tried to sleep, he heard the door open and someone come in.

“Cassidy?” Tyler questioned the intruder coming in. “Come to your senses, did you?”

But there was no answer, and assuming the intruder left, Tyler tried to go back to sleep. But instead, he felt a warm hand caress his body, and assuming it was Cassidy, turned over and planted a kiss on her.

“I’m sorry, Tyler.” Daniella lied. “I had no idea there was anybody in here.”

“What are you doing in here?” Tyler said, when he realized it wasn’t Cassidy he just kissed.

“I had to find another room to sleep in.” was Daniella’s excuse. “The sheets in my bed were all wet when I went to pull down the blankets.”

“I’m sorry to hear that, Dani.” Tyler apologized.

“I’ll go check out what’s wrong.” Tyler told her. “Just to make sure there’s no leak.”

“No, you don’t have to do that.” Daniella told him. “I’m sure the sheets will be dry in the morning.”

“It’s no problem, really.” Tyler offered. “I pride myself on having a leak-proof home and if you have a leak, I need to fix it.”

“Can’t you do it in the morning?” Daniella asked him, hoping to buy some time before she could get back to her room.

“Okay, I will wait until morning.” Tyler promised her.

“Thank you, Tyler. You’re such a doll.” Daniella said sweetly.

“I think I will go sleep in my own room with my wife, where I belong.” Tyler said.
As Tyler went back up to his and Cassidy’s room, Daniella made her way back to her room and crawled into the bed, knowing it wouldn’t be long before she had Tyler right where she wanted him. . .and Cassidy would be alone. . .just like her.

Chapter 5
Cassidy woke to find Tyler sleeping next to her, snoring as loudly as ever. It kept Cassidy awake and she couldn’t sleep ever since Tyler came back into the room. Not wanting to give into Tyler, Cassidy got up and put on her bathrobe to prepare breakfast. Cooking always managed to make Cassidy feel better.
But when she got downstairs to the kitchen, Daniella was already there dressed in a sexy black dress, cooking breakfast.
“Daniella, what are you doing in my kitchen?” Cassidy demanded.
“Well, I saw how busy you and Tyler were, so I wanted to help out a little.”Daniella told her sweetly.
“Well, I don’t need your help.” Cassidy spat out. “Especially with you looking like that!”
“What’s wrong with how I look?” Daniella asked innocently.
“That dress?!” Cassidy raged. “How many people cook in a sexy black dress?!”
“Well, I had a prior commitment so I got ready and thought I would make you and Tyler dinner before I left.” Daniella explained in her sugar-sweet voice.
“Yeah, I bet!” Cassidy screamed at her. “Why don’t you admit you’re trying to take Tyler away from me!”
As Cassidy threw out accusations, Daniella continued cooking, remaining calm. Cassidy’s ranting woke Tyler, who was still asleep upstairs, came downstairs to see what all the commotion was.
“What is going on down here?!” Tyler exploded.
“I was just making you two some breakfast and Cassie just flew off the handle?” Daniella said in her sugary sweet voice. “And she flew into a rage.”
“Cassie, what is wrong with you?” Tyler asked. “She’s just making breakfast.”
“Dressed like that!”
“I told your wife that I had somewhere to go, but thought I would make you two some breakfast before I go.” Daniella explained as sweetly as possible.
“There, Cassie, she’s just making breakfast for us.” Tyler tried to get Cassie to be rational.
“She’s trying to take you away! Who makes breakfast in that attire!”
“Cassie, she just told us she had somewhere to be after making breakfast.” Tyler continued to reason with Cassie.
“You know what, Tyler, I’m leaving.” Cassie yelled. “If you’re going to take her side, you can have her!”
Cassidy stormed out of the house and to her car and drove off. She had to get out. Drive somewhere—anywhere, but at home. Daniella was ruining their life and Tyler couldn’t see it.
Meanwhile, Daniella had breakfast ready and on the table when Tyler came back. She was sitting at the table waiting for Tyler and Cassidy to join her.
“Breakfast is served.” Daniella told Tyler when he came back to the kitchen after failing to reason with Cassidy.
“Thanks, Daniella.” Tyler told her as he sat down to eat.
“Where’s Cassie?” Daniella asked him, secretly happy inside.
“She left.” Was all Tyler said.
“I’m sorry, Tyler.” Daniella said as she squeezed his hand.
“It’s not your fault.”
“Is there anything I can do?”
“No.”
With Cassidy gone, it was time to make her move. Daniella soothed Tyler’s hand, as she inched her hand further up his arm, rubbing it soothingly. Enjoying the touch, Tyler let Daniella caress him, as he was hurting from Cassidy’s tirade.
Still hurting from Cassidy leaving so angrily and her irrational behavior, Tyler kissed Daniella. Daniella had Tyler right where she wanted him. Tyler grabbed Daniella and kissed her, as the two ended up in a passionate kiss.
While Daniella and Tyler were getting passionate, Cassidy was driving so fast as thoughts of her argument came back to her, making her more angry that Tyler would side with Daniella. The past was coming back to haunt her.
Daniella was coming between her and Tyler just like when they were in high school when Daniella came between her and any guy she was interested in.
Cassidy, seeing the oncoming car through her angry tears, swerved to the side of the road and went off into a ditch.

Chapter 6
As Daniela was busy seducing an unsuspecting Tyler, Cassidy lay unconscious in her car in the ditch with her head on the steering wheel.
A passerby who was making his usual jog, found Cassidy’s car and called 9-1-1 to get the paramedics on the scene.
Then he checked Cassidy’s wrist for a pulse and found one, although very faint.
The paramedics arrived on scene within 10 minutes and rushed to see how Cassidy was. They check her vitals: Temp—98.9, Pulse—110, Respirations—24, Blood Pressure—190/99, O2 sats—70 and falling fast.
The paramedics put an oxygen mask on Cassidy to help get more oxygen to Cassidy’s brain. They reported Cassidy’s condition to the hospital via radio before putting her in the ambulance for transport to the hospital.
“Do you know this lady?” the paramedic asked the jogger.
“No. I found her car while out on a jog.” The jogger asked.
“Well, does she have any identification?”
“I saw a purse in the car.” The jogger told the paramedic. “It said Cassidy Jenkins.”
“Thank you sir.” The paramedic said. “We will give her husband a call.”
As Cassidy was on her way to the hospital, the paramedic riding in the ambulance gave Tyler a call.
Back at Tyler’s home, Daniela was about to unbutton her blouse to give Tyler a show after kissing him passionately when the phone near the bed began ringing.
“I’m sorry, Daniela, but I must get this. It could be my employer.” Tyler said, feeling guilty about what he was about to do with his wife’s friend.
“Hello?” Tyler said, after picking up the phone by the bed.
“Mr. Jenkins?” the paramedic said.
“Yes, this Tyler Jenkins.”
“I’m afraid to tell you, but your wife is being taken to the hospital.”
“The hospital? What happened?” Tyler asked the paramedic.
“There’s been an accident. Your wife is holding her own, but is unconscious.”
“I’m on my way!” Tyler said, hanging up and pushing Daniela off the bed and putting his pants and shirt back on, making Daniela a little ticked off.
“Can’t you forget about Cassidy?” Daniela said selfishly.
“Who the hell are you?” Tyler accused. “I thought you were her best friend?”
“Oh fine. Have it your way.” Daniela said with irritation.
As Tyler left Daniela alone on the bed, Daniela felt hurt that Cassidy always seemed to win.
“Damn you, Cassidy!” Daniela said. “You won’t win this!”

Chapter 7
Daniela was left to sulk after Tyler fled to the hospital to see Cassidy. When he got there Cassidy was admitted to her room where she was resting peacefully. Or so the doctors and nurses thought. But Cassidy was having anything but a peaceful sleep. Despite being in a coma, Cassidy was wracked with nightmares that Tyler had left her for Daniela.
When Tyler held Cassidy’s hand, Cassidy’s eyes twitched. She wanted to wake up but something was preventing her from doing so.
Suddenly, Cassidy’s monitor started beeping and Cassidy was in cardiac arrest as doctors and nurses entered Cassidy’s room with a crash cart to begin CPR on Cassidy.
A nurse’s aide shuffled Tyler out of Cassidy’s room, despite Tyler’s objection to remain in the room.
Several minutes later—it seemed like an eternity to Tyler—the doctor came out to give Tyler the news:
“Cassidy was poisoned.”
“Poisoned?” Tyler asked in surprise. “Who would do that?” Then he thought of Daniela. Could she have done this?
“We have given your wife the antidote and are waiting to see if she responds to the treatment.” The doctor informed Tyler, just as Daniela arrived to check on her friend.
“Is Cassidy alright?” Daniela asked sweetly, almost too sweetly it made Tyler suspicious.
“Mr, Jenkins will give you the details.” The doctor told Daniela before walking away.
“Doctor, can I go see her?” Tyler asked the departing doctor.
Tyler felt a hand on his shoulder as Daniela tried to comfort him, but he pulled away from her.
“Leave me alone.”
“I just want to help.”
“After trying to seduce me?”
“I couldn’t help myself.” Daniela defended herself.
“I love my wife.”
“I know. And I’m sorry.”
“Well, if you’re so sorry then you’ll pack your things and leave our home.” Tyler lashed out at her.
“Okay. If that’s how you feel.”
Tyler didn’t say a word. He just left her standing there as he walked on to see Cassidy.
“Fine. Have it your way, Tyler! For now!” Daniela whispered to herself, as she went back to Tyler and Cassidy’s home and packed her things and then headed for a motel.

Scary Clown Club

Introduction
Aydyn Grimes wants to start a club: a scary clown club for Halloween. But with the controversy on scary clowns, no one wants to join. Will his club be successful or die out?

Chapter 1
Aydyn Grimes loved clowns and wanted to start a new club: a scary clown club. But his hopes were dashed when he heard about the scary clown controversy online. He recruited his friends and classmates to join, but none would agree to join.
Aydyn was in class when his best friend, Rob nudged him on the shoulder.
“Pssst! Aydyn?” Rob whispered.
“What?” Aydyn said as he turned around to see who was talking to him.
“What are you going as for Halloween?” Rob asked whispering.
“A scary clown, of course.”
“Ewwww! You can do that!”
“Why not?” Aydyn asked.
“Haven’t you heard about the scary clowns terrorizing people?”
“Yes. But I don’t see why I can’t go as a scary clown?” Aydyn said bitterly.
“You’re going to regret it!”
“I don’t care. They don’t scare me.” Aydyn defended. “I’ll go as what I want and no scary clowns will deter from what I want!”
“Suit yourself, but you’ll be sorry!”

(Coming: Aydyn starts his Scary Clown Club despite ridicule from classmates.)

Chapter 2
Aydyn only found one classmate to join his Scary Clown Club. Teddy Williams, the geekiest kid in 7th grade. Everyone made fun of him. It was sad really because Aydyn really like the kid. Aydyn was torn between being a friend to Teddy and being popular with his classmates. Aydyn decided that being popular wasn’t all that grand, so he befriended Teddy and together they made a clubhouse for the 2-person Scary Clown Club.
Aydyn arrived at the clubhouse where he was supposed to meet Teddy and was shocked at what he saw: the clubhouse burned to the ground. Someone had set his clubhouse ablaze.
Rob Taylor happened by the clubhouse and taunted Aydyn.
“I told you you’d regret starting your Scary Clown Club!”
“Did you do this?”
“No, who do you take me for?!”
“Funny how you just happen by my burnt-to-the-ground clubhouse!”
“Well, it’s just a coincidence!”
“Yeah, well it won’t stop me from forming my club!” Aydyn told Rob.
“Yeah, those Scary Clowns may have they’re own say about your club!”
Rob left Aydyn alone with his burnt clubhouse and joined his friends.
“So, does Aydyn suspect what we did to his clubhouse?” Trevor asked Rob.
“No. He’s clueless. But he’s still bent on forming his Scary Clown Club.”
“What do we do?”
“We keep watch and prevent him from doing so!”
All of a sudden, the two boys ran for their lives as they were being chased by clowns in costume. They ran as fast as they could, but the boys couldn’t run fast enough and the clowns caught up the two boys—and the clowns stabbed the two boys in the back, causing them to fall to their deaths.

Spellbound: Hannah Learns Her True Heritage

Synopsis
Hannah Mayberry has always been a little different from the rest of her peers. But on her 16th birthday, she finds out why—Hannah is a 3rd generation witch. Her mother and grandmother were witches too. When Hannah comes into her powers, she learns her arch rival, Danah McCloskey, is also a witch, and has a diabolical plan that will reek havoc on Springton. Can Hannah save Springton citizens from Danah’s diabolical plan?

Chapter 1
Hannah woke up on June 21, 2017—her 16th birthday! The birthday she couldn’t wait for! She would have a surprise—Hannah remembered her mother telling her for as long as she could remember. She couldn’t wait for the grand party that her mother would throw—just like her mother and her grandmother had on their 16th birthdays—she couldn’t wait to find out the secret that would change her life.

Hannah got up out of bed and opened her bedroom window. A beautiful day. The sun shining through her window gave Hannah the sign that all would be well today.

Hannah put on the plaid skirt and blue sweater that she picked out the night before and put on the necklace her mother gave her the night before—an early birthday present.

As soon as she was finished dressing, Hannah went downstairs to join her father, mother, and younger sister, Carissa, for the family breakfast they all did for each member’s birthdays—a family tradition, Hannah’s mother insisted on.

“Happy birthday, Hannah!” 8-year-old, Carissa said when Hannah sat down at the family table.
“Thank you, sister dear.”
“Hannah, I made all your favorites!” Hannah’s mother said, as she sat over-easy eggs, hash browns, toast with strawberry jelly and butter, and orange juice in front of Hannah.
“Yum!” Hannah exclaimed. “It’s delicious!”
Carissa ate her oatmeal—the only thing her sister would eat.
“Carissa, you really should try my eggs and hash browns.” Hannah encouraged her sister to eat.
“Yuck!” Carissa said with a grimace.
“You don’t know what you’re missing!”
“Hannah, let your sister be!” Hannah’s father said.
“Yes, dad!”
“Well, what is the big secret that I learn today?” Hannah asked, hoping Hannah would give away before the big party.
“Hannah, you know I won’t reveal that until your party!” Hannah’s mother told her.
“Yeah, I know. I was just hoping!”
“All in good time!” Hannah’s mother said, smiling.”

The Mayberry finished their breakfast and went about their days as usual with Hannah’s father heading to work, Hannah’s mother cleaning house and getting everything ready for the party, Carissa watching her favorite tv shows, and Hannah spending time heading to the town library, where she worked as librarian.

Danah McCloskey, Hannah’s arch rival, came into the library and snubbed her nose at Hannah. Danah came from old money and didn’t like Hannah, who had to take a job to get the things that Danah could use her parents’ money for. Danah clearly felt superior to Hannah due to her wealthy status.
It was time for Hannah to leave the library and head home to get ready for her big party where her life would change forever!

Deadly Messages!!!!

Synopsis
Karma Haven is out for revenge! Revenge against her husband’s ex-wife, Valen! For ruining her marriage by making up fake boyfriends to make her husband jealous. Karma waits! Waits for the right time to exact her revenge! Who will win the revenge war?

Chapter 1
“Karma, she’s doing it again!” Trenton cried to Karma.
“What is the bitch doing now!” Karma retorted.
“She’s refusing to let me see my son!” Trenton continues his pity party.
“Damn her!” Karma yells as she punches in Valen’s cell number so she can send the bitch a nasty text.
“Hey, Bitch! Who the hell do U think U R?!” Karma texts Valen.
“Stop keeping my husband’s son from him, Bitch! It’s not rite!” Karma continued her harassing texts to Valen.
When Valen checked her messages, she was pissed off. How could Trenton and Karma accuse her of such shit? It was bullshit! She would never keep Trenton from his son! She sent Karma a text.
“Look here, woman! I hav not kept Trenton’s son from him! He’s free to call him anytime!”
“UR such a fucking liar!” came Karma’s text 30 seconds later.
“Stop accusing me of shit I’m not doing!” Valen replied back.
“Stop UR lying, Bitch!”
“Whatever! I’m not discussing a damn thing with U!” Valen text back.
“Ull be hearing from my attorney!” Valen continued.
“Ooh, Bitch! I’m scared!” Karma text her.
“Keep it up, Bitch, and Ull lose Anthony to us!” Karma continued her threats.
Valen had had enough! She called her attorney to see what she could do concerning her ex-husband and his wife’s threats to take her son from her.
“What’s wrong, Bitch?! You scared!” Valen saw what Karma sent her, but didn’t reply back.
15 minutes later, Karma text her again, “Yeah, U better, Bitch! Watch out! U won’t win!”
Valen left it there. She didn’t want to say anything. She decided to let Karma think she was scared. She obviously needed the satisfaction that she was.
“We’ll see who wins, Karma?!” Valen said under her breath.

Chapter 2
A week later, Valen came home from work tired and just wanted to go to sleep but when Valen checked her messages, sleep was the last thing on her mind after she read the nasty messages from Karma and Trenton. They hadn’t spoken to her in a week and they were starting up their drama and bullshit!
“Hey Valen, can we talk? It’s important! It’s about Anthony!” Valen read from Trenton’s message—his usual message to get her to talk—just say it’s about their son.
Valen chose to ignore the messages, especially the one from Karma: “Bitch, I’m gnna f— U up! B redy, Bitch!”
“What the hell did that mean?” Valen wondered. “Just what was she supposed to be ready for?”
“Keep it up, Bitch!” Valen read from Karma’s text.
“I am gnna send my ppl to f— U up!” Karma continued as Valen read from Karma’s text.
“They will rip U from gut to pssy! Ur nuthin but a whre the way Ur treatin Trenton! It’s not rite Bitch!” Karma sent Valen.
“Watch out, Bitch!”
Valen didn’t reply back. She snapped a photo of the messages and kept them in her file to keep for future reference when she could get an order to stop them from harassing her.
Anthony and Valen had a talk about Trenton and after the talk, she suddenly realized what was going on. Trenton was pulling his usual game where he would call his son with the intent of needing to talk. Anthony said he was busy and couldn’t talk.
So because Anthony didn’t want to talk, Trenton cried to Karma and the result was a bunch of nasty, threatening messages where she was going to have the shit beat out of her.
“Well, Karma, bring it on!” Valen whispered to herself.

Chapter 3
6 months later, nothing from Trenton or Karma! It was as if Trenton and Karma fell off the earth.
Of course, Valen knew that wasn’t true. In the back of her mind, Valen knew they’d be back! With more drama and bullshit!
She would just wait! And live her life until…..
“Valen, can we talk?” came Trenton’s text.
Valen ignored it.
“R U mad @ me !” Trenton text back 15 minutes later when he got no reply.
Valen just wanted him to leave her alone, but deep down she knew Trenton would keep sending the texts…each one becoming more nasty…
“What do you want?” Valen relented and gave in sending Trenton a text to reassure him she wasn’t mad.
“I hav a dire emergency!” Trenton text. “Can I call U?”
“Yeah. Whatever?” Valen text back.
2 seconds later, Valen receives Trenton’s call, “What is your emergency?”
“Karma and I are divorcing.” Trenton revealed.
“Didn’t you say that 3 months ago?” Valen asked, knowing what would come next.
“Well, we stayed together, but we’re gonna divorce now.”
“So, what do you want me to do about it?” Valen couldn’t believe she was listening to his bullshit.
“I need to stay with you?” Trenton asked her. “I can’t stay with Karma!”
“Why not?”
“Her daughter, Kaidence, tried to come after me with a knife.”
“Really?” Valen asked, knowing Trenton was pulling a fast one on her.
“Yeah, she stabbed me in the face. I have a scar on my face.”
“Yeah. I’ll bet.”
“So, can I crash at your place?”
“No, I have my boyfriend living with me.” Valen told him.
“Yeah. The fake one?” Trenton accused her.
“No. He’s not fake!” Valen defended herself.
“Okay.” Trenton said before hanging up like he always did when he didn’t get his way.
3 hours later, Valen wakes to 3 text messages—all from Karma:
“Bitch, U need 2 let Trenton stay with U! He can’t stay here! His life is n danger!”
If U don’t, UR a cold-heartless Bitch & I’ll cum after U with my ppl!”
“Oh & Bitch, thanks 4 faking the bfs! U just broke up my marriage! Hope UR happy!”
More accusations and idle threats! When will they grow up?!
Another text came in from Karma:
“Bitch, I hav UR medical file showing proof U were committed!”
“I am going to hav UR @$$ committed! I only need 3 signatures! Then my ppl will be out UR way to hav U picked up!”
Gawd, was Karma stupid?!
Valen decided to wait and see if that ever happened!

Chapter 4
Several months later, and no road-trip-goons to come beat her up!
“Yah? Another idle threat, Karma?!” Valen thought to herself. “And you’re big and bad?”
Valen sat down and wrote a letter to Karma (not like she was going to send it):
Dear Karma,
Your so big and bad, yet you fail to send those goons to come beat me up! Another idle threat! And it’s been several months, Karma! Why am I not in some mental institution?
You left nasty threat that some men in white coats were coming for me! Where are they? Then when I didn’t respond to your childish message, you come back a few minutes later to accuse me of being scared?
What did you expect me to do? Lie in my bed and cry? Did you get your satisfaction? Do you really think I’m scared of your idle threats? If that’s what you need to validate yourself as big and bad, I hope it worked?
Well, Karma, just so you know, I’m not scared of your threats! So bring on your road-trip-goons! Bring on the men in white coats! I’m waiting!
Signed,
One Scared Bitch!
After writing the letter, Valen sealed it in an envelope, and filed it away in her files. No one would see the letter.
It was just a way for Valen to get the stress from Karma and Trenton’s drama.
Then Valen mixed up some margarita and sat down to enjoy her life, free from all the drama. Or was it?

Chapter 5
Valen had arrived home from work around 10:30 p.m. and had taken a shower before she retired to bed. Tired, Valen didn’t want to deal with any drama, but that is what she got.
As soon as Valen was lying down to sleep after a hard night’s work, in came a text from Karma: “Hey, bitch! Who do you think U R?! Trenton told me what U did!”
After Valen read the message from Karma, she set her phone down on her night table and tried to go to sleep. But Sleep would be the last thing Valen got that night!
“Can’t U reply, bitch!” came Karma’s text when Valen failed to respond.
Several minutes later, and Karma text back: “Okay, bitch! Since UR 2 childish to reply—I’m going to have U reported 2 the authorities!
Valen read the messages and set her phone back and laid back down to get some sleep.
An hour later, Karma was pist that Valen wasn’t responding to her texts.
“Hey, bitch! Watch out! I have some people coming 4 U!”
Valen read the message and laughed to herself: “Sure Karma, just like all UR other threats!”
5 minutes later, Karma text back: “U scared! U better B! I’m good 4 my word! There coming 4 U!”
Valen read the message and laid back down in bed, thinking to herself: “Bring it on, Karma!”

Chapter 6
Life was good for Valen. She hadn’t heard from her ex-husband, Trenton, or the bitch from hell, Karma, in several months. Valen was beginning to let her guard down, thinking the two were finally letting up on all their drama.
Valen came home from her job at the nursing facility to find that her home had been broken into. Nothing was taken, but her son was lying face down in his bed. At first freaked out that her son might be dead, she felt for a pulse and found one. Calling 9-1-1, Valen’s son was rushed to the hospital via ambulance.
On the way out of the house, Valen spied a note on the refrigerator:
Don’t think I’m done with you! You will get your come uppance!
You know who!
Valen couldn’t believe that bitch was behind this! Couldn’t she ever get a break from those two?!
