They say there’s a fine line between love and hate.
I married a douchebag.
I didn’t know it at the time.
He came in like a handsome stranger and blew me off my feet.
I fell madly in love, like the naive girl I am.
Then he left me high and dry.
Turns out, I was nothing more than a business plan for billionaire playboy, Marcus Tandem.
He needed to be married in order to obtain his grandfathers business, and I was the poor victim in his path.
I believed in what we had, until the truth reared its ugly head.
I never meant anything to Marcus. Not a damned thing.
With my world spinning on its axis, the girl I once was has long since died.
Instead he left me as this empty, emotionless shell.
I may have made a vow before God to love and cherish him ‘Til Death do we part, but it’s time for me to give back to Marcus, exactly what he gave me.
He has to pay.
And pay he will.
This isn’t your typical girl meets boy. There isn’t a glass slipper or Prince Charming. I’ve lived it and now it will be told. Welcome to my personal hell.
Women are drawn to me like a moth to the flame, and like the moth not all of them continue on. Some are broken, others are damaged, and a few never make it out. I create my own rules in a world where I have nothing left to lose. Living is a game, and I’m the reigning champion by being stronger and smarter than my prey. This is your warning. If you radiate vulnerability, you could be my next victim. Don’t try to hide. I’m not easily eluded.
It started with me and now it will end with me. Some people call me an uncontrollable monster. I laugh at the mention of the word. Monsters have no control. I’ve got plenty. I don’t kill without reason. I don’t kill the innocent. I hunt the ones that deserve it, the real monsters, the ones without regret or a soul.
ELUDED is intended for a mature audience.
