D E V I L S ♛ C. G. 〖 #wattys2017 〗
April loves three things, and only three things. Her heart is cut in thirds like a cake, and each piece leaves bleeding holes once they're gone.
The first, her father. The second, her mother. And the third, though not a person, is her favorite thing of all. She loves the way she can see fear in the iris of Carl's eye, how his mouth hangs slack when he stares at her. She loves playing mind games with the boy, feeling how his breaths get shallow when she comes close. She loves the way he cannot look away.
Her heart is cut in thirds, like a cake, and each piece leaves bleeding holes once they're gone.
Carl is gone. And April wants her plaything back.
