Serving Mr Popular (#Wattys2018)
"Whatever, I call people as I deem fit," he interjected expressionlessly. Okay, that was insulting - how on earth did the name 'banana girl' suit me? He paused, then added with a smirk, "Or do you prefer 'servant' instead?"
"What?" I frowned in confusion. "Servant'?"
"Yeah, 'servant'." He cocked his head to one side and stared at me intently. "Do you like that better?"
"Why on earth would I deserve the term 'servant'?"
"Isn't it obvious? Your mother's my family's maid, and technically she's my parents' maid, so that makes you, her daughter, my servant," he replied with a shrug.
What. The. Hell?
Riley's been living a life of invisibility her whole school life - and she's been doing an excellent job at that. "Avoid, avoid, avoid" is her life motto for surviving high school, especially when it comes to the most popular kids in school. (Well, excluding that time when she dropped a banana peel on the floor and accidentally tripped the school's most popular girl.)
But then one day her mother lands a job as a maid of a wealthy family and the two of them move into the house owned by the family. It turns out the son of the family her mother works for is none other than...Austin Hale, the most popular guy in school.
And that, is when her senior year really begins.
