College Town Vengeance - Chapter 1

Rating: 0.0/10 (0 votes cast)

The moment of realization slammed through the corridors of my mind, as though someone had opened a flood gate of some type. My revelation had come too late, when my boss, her father, had shown me a picture of the very girl who'd scarred my soul for life. That had been six months ago, now, yet I remember it as if it had only been moments.

Kevin Kersh, the manager, had apologized for the negative treatment I had received by his hand, as one of his employees. He blamed his actions and attitude on his concerns for his beloved daughter. The same daughter that had, unknown to him, fucked me over, royally. Julia Kersh. He proceeded to hand me a transfer slip, moving me to another department, where I would be much happier. He told me how Julia had just moved to Mississippi to start college, and how she'd be gone for the next four years.

Now, let me be the first to say, that there may very well be something wrong with me as a person. I don't deny it. But in the six months since that incident had occurred, I had become a very bitter person. So bitter and hateful, in fact, that I became quite obsessed with Julia Kersh, and the concept of getting even with her for what she had done to me. I went to work, put in my eight hours or so, secretly using that time to silently curse her for everything she'd done to me, then come home. It didn't matter anyway. With her so far away, there was no way I would be able to get back at her. Until one night at work, when I learned different.

[Chapter 1]

I had been, to say the least, a mindless drone all night at work. Barely speaking a word to anyone, as usual, I'd worked tirelessly to make sure that everything was in it's proper place and all of my notes were taken care of. Returning from my final break, I was approaching the toy department, where I had been transferred to, six months ago, when I heard a voice from behind.

"James!"

I turned, startled. Hardly anyone spoke to me, since my mindset had first gotten like this. In fact, most of the other employees considered me creepy. With good reason, I always thought.

"James, if you want to clock out early, and go home, you can. I'm letting the overnight stockers finish a lot of the cleaning, since we're not getting any deliveries, tonight." Kevin told me, as he walked up to me. "This might give us a chance to cut hours, so I thought I'd ask if you'd volunteer."

"Okay." I said, before turning and walking back into the direction I'd just come from. I heard footsteps, and it became evident that Kevin was following me.

"Yeah, I'm getting off early, too. I've got to get to the airport, within the next hour. My baby girl's coming home!" He said, as he caught up to my side, grinning like the idiot he is. Needless to say, my attention was focused on what he'd just said. So much, in fact, that I had almost choked on the chewing gum that I had in my mouth. I cleared my throat to save myself from what would be an embarrassing reason to call 911. Baby girl? Daughter? Was it her?

"Julia?" I asked, shocked but still faking little or no interest. The thought was astonishing. Had she flunked out of college, or was she simply home for the weekend?

"No, Trina, my 14-year-old. Julia's her idol, and she's coming in from her Mother's house, tonight." Kevin informed me, as we both walked through the doors to the back room. I thought about this, as I approached the time clock. Julia, the girl who completely ruined my outlook on life, had a little sister? Fourteen years old? That meant that she was four years younger than I am. Kevin grabbed his jacket from his locker, as I clocked out. "Here." He said, before pulling his wallet out and roaming through it. I tugged my blue vest off and folded it up, throwing it into my locker, before he handed me a picture of Trina. "She's a real looker, ain't she? She's going to be trouble when she hits 18, that's for sure."

I was amazed. This girl was even more petite than Julia was! She stared back at me, from the picture. My eyes took in the sight of her short skirt, hanging so softly against the most beautiful legs I'd ever seen in my life. Her strawberry hair curled in around her face, only serving to highlight her gorgeous, deep, blue eyes, and her thin, pouting lips. I handed the picture back to Kevin with a silent nod, and turned for the door. It was time to go home for the evening, and with that picture still in my mind, the night had more promise than I'd seen in a long time. I walked out of the building and into the Wal-Mart parking lot, lighting a cigarette in the chilly night air. I couldn't help but continue thinking about the beautiful girl from that picture.

I opened the door and threw my keys on the counter, before closing and re-locking the door, behind me. I was still in the same apartment I was living in, when I was making love with Julia, nightly. I reached in the refridgerator and grabbed a cold beer from the remainder of a 12-pack that a friend had left, a while back.

I popped the cap on it, and took the first sip, before making my way into the bedroom of the apartment. When I entered, I flipped on the light switch and set the beer down on my computer desk, and turned the power switch on. The computer began booting up, as I turned the light to the room back off, and sat down.

Within moments, I had dialed up to the
