GENRE: YA Paranormal Romance
Rain is surprised when rich boy Chase shows up at a house party full of the type of people he would usually consider "trash" (herself included). After taking care of some business he approaches Rain, who he has never even bothered to speak to before, and starts hardcore flirting with her. After noticing that she's not having a good time at the party, he offers her a ride out of there. She grudgingly accepts. This conversation takes place in the car.
“You know how to get to the Haven Ridge Trailer Park?”
“Do I look like the kind of guy that hangs out in trailer parks?” He started the engine and navigated his beast of a vehicle around the other cars in the yard.
“You know you’re an asshole, right?”
He smirked. “I’ve heard that once or twice.”
“I live across the street from the entrance.”
“What makes you think I’m taking you home?”
The tiniest flicker of fear ran through me, but I shook it off. He was probably too lazy to attack anyone. “Chase, we both know I’m not your type. You don’t want to hang out with me.”
“Maybe you are my type. I’m sick of rich white girls. I wanna try something new.”
“Is that supposed to turn me on?”
He pulled up at a stop sign and grinned at me. “Does it?”
“Oh, yeah. I love the idea of being your science experiment. I’m still half white, though so you wouldn’t really get that full on ‘different’ experience you’re looking for. Maybe you should try a guy.”
“You’d have a lot of fun.”
“I seriously doubt that.”
He smiled – a real smile, not his usual slimy one. It changed his whole face. “Alright. At least let me buy you something to eat.”
Something fluttered in my stomach. “Why?”
“Why not? It’s Friday night, we’re out.”
“No offense, but I don’t really want to be seen with you. Bad for my rep.”
He burst out laughing. “Your loss."
