Enjoy an excerpt:
As I had already been staring at Alex two rows away, I didn’t miss him cast a furtive glance in the teacher’s direction before erasing what appeared to be a name on the right side corner of a worksheet. My name. On my worksheet. He didn’t even try to glimpse me as he scribbled his own name down and handed it forward. Perhaps he knew he would see the expression of utter horror that was steadily warping my face. I wouldn’t have wanted to see it either.
“Now, that worksheet will be counted as a quiz grade…” Mrs. Kramer began.
I didn’t listen. Alex’s betrayal was gnashing at my insides with teeth of biting cruelty as bitter understanding of his intentions dawned upon me with all the force of a tidal wave. I was suffocating under depths of cold reality, the truth more stinging than his actual actions—the truth that I was no more than a tool…that it was only illusion—an illusion I clung to nevertheless because it was all I could do.
Man, life can be a bitch.
I resisted the tears that clumped around my lashes, though the temptation to burst with them was more than enticing. My hands balled into fists that I smashed upon my Macbeth book with dull thuds. I didn’t really like that—Macbeth happened to be my favorite play of all time, as it made me recall how helpless the title character was in striving to avoid his Fate at all costs—a Fate he could not avoid.
