“You and me? We have nothing to talk about. We have nothing in common, so move along.”
Della stood her ground and pointed her finger into my chest, poking me as she spoke.
“We do have shit in common, asshole. You need to figure yourself out. Figure out exactly what it is that you are doing and what the fuck it is that you want. Because this,” she motioned to me, “…is pathetic.”
“I don’t need your uppity, righteous bullshit, little girl.”
“Uppity?” Della spat. “You are calling me uppity? A fucking junkie who did shit to stay high that would make a whore blush. Don’t you dare think you know a fucking thing about me, Rex Whitney. You don’t know shit. But, I know you. Stop hiding behind your bullshit party boy routine. Everyone knows where you come from. All you are now is the sad boy who is still fighting mommy and daddy. Fuck you, Rex. Go clean up.”
On that last word, Della turned and started to jog back down the road towards town.
And I stood there pissed off that she fucking talked to me like that.
And turned on that she talked to me like that.
Out of the Flames The Kendrick Pennsylvania Series Book 2
Welcome back to Kendrick Pennsylvania, where the secrets and lies are rooted deep...
Della Richardson has finally got her life together. Freshly clean and sober, she is determined to no longer be called the town junkie, that girl who everyone knows as a lost cause. She is determined to get her life together and make it a normal one. At least as normal as possible living in Kendrick.
Rex Whitney has never had his life together. He has never cared that he is called the town gigolo, the male whore that no one wants to see their daughters with. Drugs, booze and women are his favorite parts of life, and living in Kendrick has always made his favorite things easy to get.
But when Rex sees Della running down his road every day and stopping in front of his home, the home that was once hers, feelings from the past come flooding back.
A past that comes back to haunt.
A past that comes back to ruin lives.
Together Rex and Della uncover the lies that destroyed so much, but will they be able to cope with the truth?
