I’m continuing my novella from last month, “Dark Paradise,” about the relationship between good girl Celly and bad boy Duke. In this excerpt, they’ve both been dragged to the fair by their friends.
“So,” says Duke, “I suppose you’ll want to go on rides now? Should I buy you a soda? Maybe win you some stupid prize at one of the games?”
She looks around for Mona, for Alice, for any of her friends who could tell her what she should say, but everyone has disappeared, leaving her alone with this stranger. “Why would you do that?”
He looks at her like she asked him if the sky is clue. “That’s what the guy is supposed to do on a date.”
She’s going to kill Mona.
