THE EYES HAVE ITby Gretchen McNeil
“How could you do this?” Jane screamed for what felt like the millionth time. Her voice was raw, her vocal cords shredded from the agitated mix of rage and hysterics.
She knew the question was futile—Ryan hadn’t answered her the first nine hundred ninety-nine thousand nine hundred ninety-nine times, why would he now? But she couldn’t help herself, as if launching the words at his stoic face would somehow lessen the pain.
“How could you cheat on me?”
Through a Vaseline lens of hot tears, she stared into her boyfriend’s eyes, searching for some sign of remorse. Or regret. Or even pity. That would be an improvement over the blank stare. His eyes twitched back and forth across her face but like his lips, they said nothing.
Jane turned away, unable to bear his silence, and collapsed into a chair, face in her hands, weeping. She loved Ryan so much. SO MUCH. The ache emanating from the cavity beneath her ribcage was unbearable. As if she’d been stabbed, then shot, then lit on fire. How was she supposed to go on like this? Without him?
Gretchen McNeil is the author of YA horror novels Possess, Ten, and 3:59, as well as the new mystery/suspense series Don't Get Mad, beginning in 2014 with Get Even and continuing in 2015 with Get Dirty, all with Balzer + Bray for HarperCollins. In 2016, Gretchen will publish two novels: Relic, a YA horror novel, and I’m Not Your Manic Pixie Dream Girl, her first YA contemporary. Gretchen also contributed an essay to the Dear Teen Me anthology from Zest Books.
