I had a plan—make it to the Major Leagues with my best friend in tow. It was all I had left of my dad, a memory I promised myself to keep alive.
Until a freckled-face, redhead sauntered into Freemont High and became the unattainable.
My best friend wanted her.
I, on the other hand, wanted to annihilate her.
However, it didn’t occur to me that she wielded more power under her sweet and innocent facade than I expected.
They say not to judge a book by it’s cover, and I should’ve listened.
Her revenge on me is sweet, though, but in the end, it’ll all be mine.
I’ll light every word, every last page stitched between her pretty cover in untamed flames…until she’s nothing but ash.
Left to rot in the red dust of the playing field.
