Book Excerpt

He was standing in the doorway listening to me rant on about him.
“I am an asshole, you are right, you should never have fallen in love with me, I used you to pass the time this summer, now everyone knows it. Should I tell the pledge how you like it, so when you have sex with him he will know exactly how to get you off?”
Before he knew it I slapped him as hard as I could across the face. He was shocked.
Kendall was ready to jump in to protect me but Matt wouldn’t let her.
“She needs my help, I am not going to let him talk to her like that,” Kendall said to Matt.
“Wait, I will protect her from him if it gets anymore out of hand, I wouldn’t let Sydney get hurt,” Matt told Kendall. People were starting to watch this drama unfold. I was so mad- furious would be a better description.
“What are you even doing here, you didn’t come to any parties last year and now you have to rain on my parade, go to New York, leave,” I said.
“You’re wasted,” he said to me.
“I am not your responsibility…I am not anything to you, you just made that very clear and your actions this week were the nails in your coffin,” I said.
I tried to step around him to leave, he wouldn’t let me pass.
“You are not walking home from here alone,” he said grabbing my arm.
