I want to thank Zanna for having me on her blog today.
On Monday morning, Sloan gets to school and, as usual, runs into her former best friend, now enemy, Darcy Perry. Up until two months ago, Darcy and Sloan were close, but now Darcy taunts her for the ‘lifestyle choice’ she’s lived since Sloan got saved. Darcy sticks her with the nickname, “Saint Sloan”, which Sloan hates.
In Biology class, Sloan runs into Ray, Aaron’s brother, who is assigned to her as a lab partner. They decide to go to Ray’s house after school to begin working on their project. Sloan finds herself attracted to the blond haired cutie and daydreams about what it would be like to kiss him. He has one word of caution for her: stay away from Aaron. Aaron comes in to grab some supper before going to work third shift. Much to Ray’s dismay, Aaron offers (and Sloan accepts) to drive her home.
Once in her driveway, Sloan tells him goodnight and feels a spark between them. She can’t help wondering what it would be like to date brothers.
With her mom still at work, Sloan starts to get a glass of water when she is attacked from behind. She tries to make him stop, but he just laughs and tells her she deserves this. One last ditch effort to escape lands her unconscious on the floor. When she wakes up, Aaron is standing over her. Sloan can’t imagine that Aaron would hurt her, but she also can’t get the image of him standing over her out of her head.
On Thursday, Darcy isn’t at school which never happens. Even with Darcy absent the taunting doesn’t stop. Sloan is picked on in Biology by Tanner, resident jerk. Exhausted and overly emotional, she runs from class.
As Sloan rounds the corner of the hall she runs into a very familiar face, and that face turns out to be the man she’s feared since Monday night: her attacker.
They end up at Ray and Aaron’s house and she fights to stay alive. In the end, it’s the attacker who is hurt on the hallway floor, and Sloan freezes in the kitchen doorway, unable to move or respond when
EMS comes to help her.
