I lived in the dark for three years. My whole world revolved

around the whims and happiness of three men. It was just a trip into the

forbidden. A way out of a bad situation and forward into nothingness.

Quin, with his easy smile and charming good looks. He was

always there for me… Until he wasn’t.

Smith, and his dispassionate attention. He was never there

for me and he never regretted it.

Bric, the one who listened, but only to himself.

Self-absorbed, self-obsessed, and self-serving. He was never the one I wanted.

And now he might be the only one I have left.

It was good while it lasted, I guess. But it could’ve been

so much more. It could’ve been so much better.


And that’s why I’m turning back.

the bench, Quin would sit across from me in a chair, and Bric would sit to my

“I sat

there on the couch for a while trying to figure out what happened.”

“What did

you come up with?” Bric is looking very intently at me. Like everything I’m

saying is critically important.

“He hate-fucked

me, that’s what I came up with, Bric!”


Bric says, throwing me one of those Don’t overreact looks.


serious. There’s no other explanation for it. He hate-fucked me. Revenge fuck.

Whatever you want to call it. That’s what happened last night.” I sigh and try

not to feel depressed and sad. “And then this morning I got out of bed to go

check on Adley when she woke up, and when I came back, he was gone.”


Bric asks. “Where’d he go?”

texted back.”

“He’s just

mad,” Bric says.

“I know.” I

huff. “He told me that last night too. He spelled it out very clearly. He was

worried about me. Sad about my leaving. But then when I came back—”

“Now he’s

just angry.”


“It’s a

pretty typical reaction,” Bric says.

“I realize

that. Which is why I’m not going to make a big deal about this. But I don’t

know if this is going to work, Bric. He might not want me. He might just want

to hurt me. Exactly the way I hurt him.”

“No,” Bric

says, like I’m being ridiculous.

“I’m not

being ridiculous,” I say. “Maybe he’s not out to hurt me. But he’s doing

something, Bric. He’s playing a game, but I’m pretty sure we’re not all playing

the same game.”

“He’s mad,

Rochelle. You have to expect that. He’s gonna come around.”

“What does

that mean? Come around? Do you really think he’s gonna fall back in love with

me the way he was? Because I don’t. I think he’s here for us. Me, you, and him together. And that’s all.”

Bric rubs

his hand across his scratchy jaw as he thinks this over, so I check on Adley.

She fell asleep in the car on the way over here and hasn’t woken up yet. Bric

is still thinking.

“I don’t

want an us, Bric.”

He looks me

in the eye and says. “I do. But I get it. And I’m fine with you and Quin

getting your little happy ending. But I’m telling you, Rochelle, he’s just

trying to protect himself right now and the best way to let him work that out

and ensure you two get back together is to have an us.”

“He said he

doesn’t trust me.”

“He has a

good reason,” Bric counters.

“I know

that,” I say, starting to get angry. “I understand that. But the whole point of

us doing this… game… or whatever it is, was so that you can help me figure this

out. I want him, Bric. You’re supposed to help me.”

But as soon

as the words come out of my mouth I realize how stupid that is. I trust no one

and I have very good reasons for that. I’ve learned over the course of my life

that people are selfish. People are out for themselves. People are liars. I

have a lot of experience in being lied to.


Bricman definitely fits all those assumptions I have about people. And then
