• I remember how I felt when I first met Erik. I thought he was a god in human form. Now I see he was just a serpent. But when he said my name, it made me feel like I was floating on a cloud of happiness. "Ariana," he said when we first met. "Beautiful name." He stared at me with his chocolate-brown eyes, and I melted. I just wish I had been stronger now, and could've seen what he would do to me in the future; now.

    He cheated on me. The lying jerk. I hate him. He said I was beautiful, gave me a promise ring, then cheated on me. Stupid Barbie-like empty-headed cheerleader made him. I hate her too. Angel, her name is. Yeah, right. I would get them back. Both of them. If it was the last thing I ever did.
