The First Rule | 📝
• highest ranking | #56 in mystery/thriller •
Trinity Academy is a school for social elites and high-class nobles, therefore it is rather convenient to have a social ladder within the premises. In the middle of the food chain, is Isla Reynolds with her boyfriend and only friend. The problem in that equation, is that said friend and boyfriend's friendship seems to be brewing into something more behind Isla's back. Isla, who is used to being a shadow for her brother, and who also craves the attention of others -- creates a plan to make her last year in Trinity, a year to be remembered.
With a sharp tongue that hides a web of lies, Isla finds it hard to open up to people and even share any real emotions toward them. Due to never having solid relationships nor friendships, it is very easy for Isla to push away and hurt other people whilst she allows herself to remain untouchable.
Isla has a strategy, and that is to never allow anybody close enough to hurt her. What if Isla's said strategy crumbles at the thought of real love? Isla, who doesn't consider other's feelings, dismisses her nonexistent boundaries when she finds a new interest in Felix Boulton.
Felix Boulton, who not only is a billionairs's son, and is someone that Isla only thinks she knows -- but is also in a relationship himself with social butterfly Blaire Xander. But as they grow close in such a short amount of time, Isla feels she can almost be her true self with Felix when he destroys that opportunity.
Isla, who is not only mad at herself for allowing herself to be vulnerable, realizes her whole life is stuck in a never ending hurricane. Not only is she predicting her future going down in ruins, but she can't find a way to let go of her past. Feeling like there's no way out, she turns to a sheet of paper. She creates a list that her lips can not utter aloud.
So, who wants to know the first rule of killing somebody and not getting caught?
