Everyone deserves a happy ending…At least the “good guys” do. That’s what the fairy tales want you to believe. But not everyone wants to live in a fairy tale. Not everyone believes in a happy ending. I certainly didn’t.
With the tragic loss of my mother and my grandmother I was sent away to live with my evil Aunt Sara. I had a new home, a new school and a huge hole in my heart.
Trying to get back a piece of who I used to be before the tragedy, I decided to join the chess club. In my old school I was the geeky girl, the one who got straight A’s and never dared to break a rule. I was the girl who’d never been kissed and wondered if I ever would be. But when I was kicked out of chess club one fateful afternoon my life changed forever.
That’s when I met them…
The Lone Wolves scooped me up and took me under their wings. Jason, Kevin, Mike, Billy and Steven were playing the leads in the school’s production of Grease and that’s where they shared something about themselves that they hadn’t shared with anyone.
I felt I was in a fairy tale with them…but the secret we all shared had the ability to ruin my new life…
Would we be able to live happily ever after or were we the “villains?”

His eyes drill into my back as I walk in front of him. A little unsettling, but I don’t let it show. Placing the plastic menus on the table, I turn around and gesture to the booth.
“Would you like anything to drink now, or do you want to wait for your companion?” My voice is a little higher than I would like, so I take a steadying breath to get myself under control.
He continues to stare hard at me. His eyes rove over my face, catching on the birthmark.
“Just water please.” He sits in the booth, crinkling the cheap, red plastic upholstery that is cracked from decades of use, and dismisses me by turning his attention outside the window.
What a douche.
