TITLE: The New Breed
GENRE: YA Horror
Azure Lane (MC) is speaking to her best friend, Sloane. Earlier at school, Azure murdered Fallon (Sloane's boyfriend) in a desperate attempt to reconcile her family, and save them from the murderous plots of Master Jeager.
"Did you expect Fallon to-" she can't say it.
But I can.
"What? Did I expect Fallon to die? Well, not exactly. But I made sure of it."
"Look at you. Look at what you've become!"
"Look at yourself, Prissy. You're so wrapped up with your own selfish delusions. What? Did you think Fallon loved you? Well, news flash, he works for Jeager. Nothing's changed."
"No, it's all the same. You're just too stupid to see it. Fallon never loved you, you idiot. Jeager's after us. You and me. He took Kieran. He took Talia. He tried to take you and Roe. But I fought back. While you just sat by like some trophy wife happy to send her children off to slaughter. You're lucky you have me."
"Fallon loved me!"
"No, I love you."
"No! No! You're crazy!" She stands up. "Roe, we're leaving. We're going home."
I stand to block her. "You are home. Roe stay put."
"You can't make us stay."
"What are you going to do? Fend for yourself? You've never done that for a single day of your pathetic life. I've always taken care of you. And the minute I disappeared you set up shop with some other idiot willing to put up with you. You're helpless. You need me."
"I don't need you. You're a murderer!"
"I'm protecting my family."
"No! You're crazy! We're leaving. Roe!"
I stand between them. There is no way in hell she is taking Roe from me.
"What are you going to do, Azure? You gonna kill me too?"
I grab her by the shoulders and press my lips to hers. She struggles to get away.
