The media spread my face nationwide on every newspaper known to man when the story first broke. It read- James King. son of wealthy, ambitious hotel owner, Victoria King, busted for cocaine possession.
Let’s be honest. I’ve always been a rebel, a little rough around the edges. The black sheep of the family. The outcast. No one ever thought twice about me, not even when I was arrested. The only thing was, I didn’t really do it, but I served time for the crime.
Today my freedom was granted to me. I was permitted to leave this prison that I had lived in for the last sixteen months. The guards opened my cell, grinned and told me I could finally go back home. Home? See, it wouldn’t be my home. It would be her home. I had no home of my own anymore. Funny thing about being locked up, was that you lose everything, including yourself. You no longer exist to the outside world. You’re transparent, at least that’s how I felt until I met Emily. She was kind, and in my world people like her were far and few between. I was drawn to her like a magnet. I wanted her, but I’d kill myself trying to get her because she was damaged. I just didn’t know it yet. (Goodreads)
“Are we talking about character? I’m not the jail bird here, am I?” she yelled.
“That’s not fair and you know it. Zach handed me a backpack and asked me to carry it for him. How the hell was I supposed to know we were doing a drop? I had no clue what was in that backpack.”
“Two pounds of cocaine and you had no clue? You must think I’m stupid.”
“No, you’re not stupid. A stupid person doesn’t have the ability to whore their-selves out for money in sheer perfection the way you do.”
She reached back and slapped me. The sting ran across my face. I looked down at the floor before I stared back at her. My eyes shifted from my mother to the cleaning girl who was now just staring at us. Her hand quickly covered her mouth in shock. I looked back to my mother with a mix of embarrassment and anger. I squinted my eyes and exercised a few breathing techniques, because my first reaction was to strike back. I would never hit a woman, but an unhealthy anger was building and building within me. This was our relationship. It always had been. She was poison to me and when she was around, my sunshine was stripped and torn away. No beauty. No blessings. Just a storm in high heels.
Jennifer Raygoza also known as the rebel of writing, burst through the writing scene in 2012 with a vampire series called, The Guardians. It was a story originally written just for fun, but ended up being self-published out of curiosity. Little did she know the series would be strongly embraced by vampire reader’s. Since then this down to earth, California girl has been picked up by Crushing Hearts and Black Butterfly Publishing. She has recently released two short stories and a poetry book that includes work from her youth.
