Senior year, the four Saintly Devils will present a rose to their selected. One girl who will belong to them. It sounds so far-fetched, and I’ve never believed in rumors—until they give me the rose.
Gideon, Dante, William, and Mateo. Four of the sexiest, wealthiest, and most popular guys in the whole school.
For the first time in history, a girl turns them down. That’s me. I crumble up that rose and hand it right back to them.
Only, there’s so much more at stake than belonging to these four guys. There’s no way I could have known this was set in motion long before I even knew about them.
When my choices are taken out of my hands, I have to find some way to control my life. I’m not going to be a doormat for guys I don’t like, these four who don’t know me.
But I should have known better. They don’t want me. They’re following orders. I’m part of a contract, an initiation to something far scarier. Something called The Society.
I’ve got no choice but to submit to the four Saintly Devils, to become theirs.
They promised to protect me and those I hold dear.
The light in front of the library turned off, and I watched as Sian left the building. She still wore the standard school uniform, only she conformed to the original design of the pencil skirt being below the knee. Others wore mini-skirts, trying to show off their legs, and in most instances, their panties, if they were even wearing them.
Her shirt was untucked and her long brown hair was down. I didn’t recall ever seeing her hair down. She always wore it up in a ponytail.
She hadn’t seen me and started the small walk back to where her dorm was. I closed the distance between us.
“Hey, Sian, wait up,” I said.
She glanced over her shoulder and released a groan. “Are you stalking me now?”
“No,” I said. The lie spilled easily from my lips.
“I don’t believe you.”
“What? A guy couldn’t be running here?” I had changed into my running gear.
“Mateo, you never run. You refuse to run.”
Busted. I preferred to lift weights or save my energy for the field playing ball. Any other time was pointless for running.
I stepped in front of her, stopping her from moving. She glanced around, and I saw the way she shifted the strap of her bag on her shoulder. I made her nervous.
“What do you want?” she asked.
“Can’t a guy be … walking and curious about a girl?”
“No,” she said. “Not when it comes to you or your friends or that damn flower you decided to give me.” She took a small step toward me. I guessed she assumed I’d budge. Not a chance. I wasn’t moving. There was no other place I wanted to be than right in front of her. “Please, move.”
I liked her saying please. One day soon she’d be begging me to taste her sweet cunt. Until then, I was going to have to wait.
“Tell me why,” I said.
“Why you turned us down. You do realize four of the most eligible guys gave you an opportunity of a lifetime.”
She snorted. “An opportunity of a lifetime? Yeah, I guess being four guys’ bitch is just a wonderful thing. We’re done here.”
“You know we could have anyone. We chose you.”
“Then go and chose one of those girls who would find this whole experience thrilling. To be honest, I’m kind of finding this creepy.” She stood her ground.
With the tilt of her head, the uniform seemed to mold to every single one of her curves, and don’t even get me started on her mass of hair. So full and thick. Damn, I was already having visions of her spread out on my bed, me grabbing fistfuls of her hair, fucking her hard.
I bet she was a virgin.
In fact, I knew she was. Her virginity is going to be a sticky subject. Pun not intended. Which one of us would break her in?
I bet Gideon would be the one, but there was a chance she’d be scarred for life.
How did I not notice this girl before? I had noticed her, but it was more like a quick assessment. At first glance, I gave her a seven, maybe. Now as I looked at her, I know she’d rank higher.
Damn, blue balls was messing with my head.
I’d opted to not sleep with anyone else since claiming Sian was so important to all of us.
“You’re kind of freaking me out now. Can I go?” she asked.
“There’s no changing your mind?”
“I don’t even understand why you want me to change my mind. Mateo, in the years that I’ve been here, we’ve never spoken to one another. I think the most we’ve ever said is when you’re throwing insults in my direction. That’s it.”
“I’ve never insulted you.”
“Think really long and hard. Believe me, you’re going to find something that says otherwise.” She pressed her palm against her forehead. “Please, move out of my way.”
“For a kiss.”
“You’re out of your mind. Hell, no.”
“I’m not moving. One kiss is all it is going to take.”
“You do realize this is verging on sexual harassment.”
