Down The Rabbit Hole
Author: Joz Maxel
An innocent crush
Turned into a rush
When he gave me the attention I craved
His touch became vile
Like a turn of the dial

Carrick came along
Told me I belonged
In this world to be cherished and loved
When life spun out of control
It crushed my soul
My fate written in the stars above

and hard.” She bites on her tongue and winks.
As she steps around me, I let out the breath I’d been holding, feeling her
body so close to mine. I turn around to see she’s already straddled on the
bike, patting the seat in front of her.
Running my hands through my already messy auburn hair, I pick up the helmet
and offer it to her. “Safety first.”
“You always play safe?” Grabbing the helmet and sliding it on her head, she
does the clip under her chin and leans forward on her hands, pushing her
Fuck me, this girl is going to kill me.
