Imagine the most important thing you have being ripped away from you. Then the people you love and depend on leaving and betraying you. Now imagine, in your most vulnerable state, someone enters your life, and makes everything worse........
Young Shay is on the brink of discovering the power of the female body, but confounded by the sometimes unsavoury repercussions. She is also an infamous anomaly blazing a path of destruction through a small town, bringing shame to her home and ill repute to her own name. The source of her internal trauma; the most malicious and sexually depraved man you can envision.
She is preyed upon until her fear causes her to push any possible help away, and drives her into a state of depression and suicidal behaviour. Then a hero emerges offering sanctuary; but what he doesn't know, is that she has become so tainted by her environment that even when removed from it she is the most destructive force to herself and those around her.


7. Untamed

I could still hear him shouting at Cameron and Terrence telling them they were acting like children and if they couldn't finish their time here together he’d see to it that they finished it in jail.  Chambers sure liked threatening people. I exhaled as I saw him standing in the anteroom and he smiled as he saw me approaching.


Chapter 7

What do you want? I ask.

Can’t a man check on his daughter?

I’m not your kid Wesley you know that.

Maybe not, just thought I’d check in on you anyways. I think this thing might actually be good for you.

I don’t care what you think.

You know I don’t know why I bother trying to be nice to you.

Nice? Wesley showing up here and harassing me isn't being “nice”.

Things could be so different between us if you weren’t so difficult.

I can’t be what you want me to be Wesley! I can’t!

You've been doing a pretty good job so far.

Yeah well not for much longer.

His face suddenly grew serious.

What is that supposed to mean?

That means the next time you touch me I’ll tell her.

Like she’ll believe you, he says with a smirk. And I don’t like being threatened.

I don’t like what you do to me!

You breathe a word of this to anyone.....well, you know what’ll happen to you. I’ll see you at home Shay, he says before walking out.

Almost instinctively I walk into the bar and retrieve the bottle of scotch and started mixing and drinking. Not my kind of thing, after a few gulps I spit it back out.

What’s the matter? Chambers asks entering the room with Terrence and Riez.

Terrence glared at me but he was a meager issue in my life right now and I could care less.

Come on, he says walking back to the office. What’s going on? He asks once we were behind closed doors.

Nothing, I say.

You sure?


He pulls the blinds before walking over to me. He brushes his fingers against my forearm. My heart sped up as he got closer to me. I put my hand on his chest to stop him before he kisses me. We both froze. I was overwhelmed, wasn't sure what I was feeling, but I knew I didn't want to feel fear. I had to show him I wasn't afraid of this.

You've been drinking, he says.

It’s nothing just a shot, I lie.

You know you’re not supposed to be doing that, he says

I know, I say.

I allowed my hand to fall away giving our lips the chance to meet.

My heart kept beating faster, but not in a good excited way, like when you kiss someone you like for the first time. It was more like a scary nervous reaction. I felt his tongue touching mine, and I remembered.

I can’t, I say pulling away, and then I stick my tongue out to show him the piercing.

Right, he says. Why’d you do that to yourself anyway?

It’s a long crazy story, I say.

Okay, he says walking back. You should get back to work, he continues picking back up the clipboard. Is there a problem with you and Terrence?

Can I trade for Cameron?

Yeah sure go ahead, he says flipping through pages.

I opened the door and stepped out of the office and only then did I feel my heartbeat start slowing down as I walked away.

I found Cameron and he, Riez and I got started again. We worked quietly, I even helped. Later on I sat with Cameron after lunch; he said he had something to ask me.

You and Chambers, are ya’ll....

No, Cameron.

I mean like, if that’s why you been trippin about getting with me I’d want to know.

It’s more complicated than that. I gotta go talk to Chambers about getting out early, I say getting up with a sigh.

Why you leaving early? He asks.

I got anger management class, I say.

Cool, he says.

You should come you need it, I say laughing.

So we catching up later? He asks.

Are you gonna drug me and then make me get another piercing?

No, he says smiling.

I’ma call you, I say walking away.

Unexpectedly anger management class was bullshit. First off I didn't have a problem; people piss me off, I hit them and then I feel better. What’s so wrong with that? It’s not like I go around beating up innocent people, these clowns deserve it.

When I got home the house was empty. I lay down on the sofa exhaling. This was the only time I could be at peace here, but the memories these walls held had began to taint it. There was no erasing or forgetting certain events. I laid there for a while before I heard someone at the front door. It was Bell, and just like that I was back in hell. There was no Wesley in tow and for that I could be grateful.

It took her all of 17 minutes before she came back in the room and started something.

You know it’s not gonna kill you to get off your ass and cook something for a change, she says with her arms crossed.

You don’t think the eleven months I spent doing that while you laid up in bed was enough? I ask resentfully.

I was grieving the loss of my husband! She says bitterly.

Yeah well I lost a father too, I say. Besides look how quickly you recovered.

Is that supposed to be a stab at my relationship with your stepfather?

He’s nothing to me.

Your attitude stinks you know that?

Falling on deaf ears here.

I should have had an abortion, she spits before walking away.

You should have died in child birth! I shoot back.

If you’d had your way I would have! She shouts from the kitchen.

You’re such a psycho mom you expect me to remember that? What do you think I didn't want to be born?

I think you came out of my womb evil, she says walking back into the living room.

Whatever! I shout getting up and marching to my room.

God that woman rubbed me the wrong way. Why didn't she just leave me alone?

I undressed and then went to the shower. When I came back out I saw that I had a missed call from Cameron. He left me a message telling me to swing by. I figured I might as well, it’s not like I had much else to do here and it would save me from slaying that beast downstairs and going to jail for real.

When I got to Ocho’s house Cameron and his friends were playing cards for money. The usual suspects in play; Juice, Lizard and Narco. The story behind each name was just about as strange as the name itself. They called Cameron Brick but he refused to tell me why.

Ocho came home with grocery bags full of junk food. They ordered pizza while they gambled. Cameron and I were on the couch watching TV. These boys were only in their early twenties and this was basically their lifestyle, their family. They had no real responsibilities. All Ocho had to do was pay to keep the lights, heat and water on. He had been living here since his grandmother got put in a nursing home.

None of the boys had stable jobs and had been in and out of juvenile hall, now they barely manage to stay out of jail. The smell of the marijuana they were smoking wafted into the living room. Cameron offered me a hit but I declined. They started calling the chicks over and soon there was sexing going on in the other room. I didn't want to be part of anything loose or rude so I decided to leave before I was even asked.

Not that the guys ever did before, I was just eliminating room for that to happen because guys are unpredictable and they change when they get horny.
