Title: SCORCH (Delirious, #3)
Author: Clarissa Wild
Genre: Dark Erotic Romance
Release Date: March 3, 2015
I am the forgotten one, the girl who was left for dead.
In this mental hospital I call prison I plot my revenge.
I remember everything.
Their faces. Their touch. Even their smell.
What they did to me was beyond cruel. I’m going to return the favor.
In here I survive by using someone just as they used me. One of them wants to claim me as his own. A man without mercy, without a conscience, craving the wickedness inside me. But I won’t be a puppet for his desires. I will play his strings like a puppeteer and use him to escape.
And when I do … I will kill them all.
This is Ashley's story and the final book in the Delirious Series. This is a full-length novel. These books should be read in order.
WARNING: This book contains very disturbing situations, strong language, dubious consent, and graphic violence.
“Aw.” I laugh out loud. “Look at you, screaming like a little girl.”
“Please, stop. Don’t do this,” he grunts, heaving.
“Why would I? You never did.” I lean in, grab him by the hair, and pull back. “All you fuckers are the same, thinking you can get away with stealing someone’s innocence.”
“I’m sorry, I’m sorry,” he sputters over and over again.
“You should have thought of that before you jingled your balls, dude.”
“I can’t change the past, but I am sorry. I’m so sorry …” he whimpers.
“Stop. You’re pathetic, but it won’t make me go easy on you. So just stop the crying. It doesn’t work on me.”
“Please.” Suddenly, he grabs my hand. “I’ll do anything. It doesn’t have to be like this. I can change it all.”
I jerk my hand free. “No, you can’t. It’s too late for any of that.” I grab my bag and start rummaging through it, but he tries to scramble up and leave. As I finally find what I’m looking for, a pair of cuffs and a stapler, I walk toward him and kick him in the back. I hear something snap, and a god-awful sound explodes from his mouth.
He falls to the ground with a flop, screaming his lungs out.
“Whoops.” I laugh. “I guess you don’t like Brokeback Mountain. The mountain being me, in this case. Television ain’t all that, now is it?”
He cries out as I haul him back to the couch and cuff him to the heater. His hand is so close he screams even more.
“Burn, motherfucker,” I say, chuckling to myself.
“Please!” he begs.
“Please, end your life quicker?” I ask, leaning in with raised brows.
He nods quickly, trembling in place.
I shake my head. “No.”
“Yes,” he pleads.
“No.” I frown. “But I guess you don’t understand that word, now do you?”
He shakes his head even more so.
I shrug. “Oh well, it’s time for you to learn what it means when you don’t listen and use someone for your own pleasure.”
I place the stapler on the table and search through my bag until I find a pair of scissors, which are so sharp the blade cuts me when I reach for it. His eyes almost bulge out of his head as he sees me grab all these tools. I smile at him, fascinated by the decline of his sanity. Or mine. I’m not sure.
