Because of Miss Bridgerton (Rokesbys #1) God Emperor of Dune (Dune Chronicles #4)

I clenched my jaw shut. It should’ve been obvious the moment Skylar walked through those doors that she was here about Sebastian, because why else would she be talking to me? Yeah, she was sugary sweet, but we didn’t operate in the same circles at school. Half of the time I was invisible to her and her friends.

I hadn’t seen Dad in four years.The last time had been in the kitchen, sitting at the table. He and Mom had been waiting for me and Lori to get home from school, and I think I’d known what was happening the moment I’d walked into the kitchen. Mom had been red eyed.

Shallow (Going Under #2)

Lori hadn’t seen it coming.Dad now looked... He looked older, but good. There were more lines around his eyes and the corners of his mouth, and his hair was more salt-and-pepper than brown, but he looked like life was going smoothly for him in Seattle.Dad used to be a developer. His company—Wise Home Industries—was responsible for more than half of the homes built in the last two decades. Then the housing market slammed face-first into rock bottom and Dad had to make cuts and the jobs slowed before stopping, and then he had to close the business. Money stopped flowing in. Things got tight.

Dark Demon (Dark #16)

And he couldn’t handle it.He’d bailed on Mom and us, moved to Seattle of all places, to find himself or some crap. The last I heard, he’d started working for some advertising firm.

I thought I’d feel something stronger than mild annoyance or surprise. I’d spent years ignoring his phone calls. Years being ticked off at him. And now I was just empty. Probably had something to do with the painkillers pumping through my system.

His hazel eyes shifted to Mom before settling on me. A lopsided smile formed as he shuffled over to the bed. He cleared his throat as he stared down at me. You look... You look...No, it’s helpful, he said, giving me a reassuring smile when I lowered my hands. Now, a few nights ago, a call came into dispatch about a possible intruder at your home. The report filed said there was no sign of a break-in, but you said that the mask—the same kind the attacker was wearing—was on your bed and there was a note, saying something along the lines of it ‘being your fault?’

Jensen stared at me. What? Why didn’t you tell me that?Crap. I . . . the cops didn’t find anything, so I thought it was just my imagination. The window wasn’t open and there was no mask on the bed when the police got there. My gaze swung back to Shaw. I told myself it was my imagination, but I also think it’s kind of hard to imagine all of that.

Nines Legacy (Lorien Legacies: The Lost Files #2)

Shaw didn’t answer immediately, and when he did, it was a totally vague response that wasn’t him agreeing or disagreeing. Unease grew, slithering through me like noxious smoke. What if that thing had been in my house? I knew it was possible, but I’d been able to convince myself otherwise over the last couple of days. A shudder worked its way through my body, and Jensen’s hand shifted, his fingers curling around my knee.How close were you to Monica? Shaw asked.

I wasn’t at all.His forehead creased. But you went to school together since elementary, correct?

Yes. It was a little weird realizing that Shaw had done his homework. Then again, in a town this size, it wasn’t hard to make the assumption that we’d grown up together. But we were never close. We hung out in different crowds and she wasn’t always . . . I trailed off, thinking it would be work to finish that sentence.She wasn’t what? he coaxed gently.

I pressed my lips together. Monica, like Wendy and Shawna, had never been particularly nice to people. Up until this week, I’d never had a problem with any of them, but . . .Monica is popular, but she isn’t the nicest person, Jensen answered truthfully, saving me from having to be the one to talk bad about her. She had a tendency . . . ever since middle school, to pick on other kids.
