”You must be the new girl. ”

She said with an overly sickly sweet smile, I internally rolled my eyes she is so **ing fake. If it weren for her status on campus I would have tolerated this shit.

She tucked a lone strand of her platinum blonde hair behind her ears and eyed me subtly. Her bright blue eyes scanned my attire, blinking curiously if I could be their next target for their sick entertainment.

I knew her type very well, I had dealt bitches like her before in my old school and I will not hesitate to put her in her place if she crossed the line. Girls like her have always irritated me. I matched her stare head-on as the corners of her mouth twitched. High school sweethearts or not, I would not let some pompous rich kid intimidate me.

”That, I am, ”

I announced with a clipped tone. She may be branded as the campus sweetheart but I had my doubts.

As much as I want to retort something sarcastic I reigned my emotions.

I take a deep breath and remind myself that I need to be on my best behavior and stay low.

Getting into this campus was hard, but if your family is influential, rich, and has the abilities then you have the ticket to enter the academy. I was the few lucky ones who got the privilege to enroll in the academy. The Academy who have many people who are sought after.

It was still a mystery who my mysterious financer is.

Without looking if I was following her or not, she began the tour. I fasten my pace but I keep my expression in check. I was a bit ticked off by her rude behavior.

High school sweetheart my ass.

We walked around the school and she would point out different landmarks to me, the gym, mezzanine, music hall, and auditorium. It was tiring because the campus was a bit huge and I feel like my legs would give up at any minute.

My mind drifted back to the times when I was with Rae. I remember when she came bouncing on her feet with a cheerful smile on her face. I raised my brows at her silently asking her what is going on but instead of answering she burst into a fit of giggles. Her bloody red coated lips stretch in a wide smile and wave the crisp white paper on my face. She is such an airhead, sometimes I wonder what is going on in that pretty little head of hers. I chuckled in amusement, she haven changed a bit.

Rae and I have known each other since our time in the orphanage and were lucky to be adopted by some wealthy family from the Golden Leaf.

”You wouldn believe what happened! Oh God, ” she squealed and fan herself with her dainty hands. Her voice was laced with excitement, eyes wide in anticipation. I smile and urge her to continue. ”The Big Five invited me to attend their party tomorrow! ” she squealed again and I rolled my eyes. She knew that I detest that group. My brows knitted and I think I know where it is going.

”What about them? ” her smile dropped and she narrowed her chocolate orbs at me.

”This is serious! This is not to be taken lightly, ” she chastised but I shrug my shoulders nonchalantly. I never understood her fascination with them. Some people worshipped them like Gods and treated them like royalty.

The Big Five is what people called them, or the ”it ” group. The five legendary families who have Arcane blood running in their line, the five heirs who have the world right under their palms. Just the mention of their names sent me chills on my spine.

”Oh God, what should I wear? I can be late! I don want to disappoint them! ” she gushed and went to her closet and start rummaging the contents. I frowned and shifted in my seat getting comfortable on the soft mattress.

”Its just a party, don freak out. Just go with the dress you feel comfortable with, and be just you. I am sure they will like you. ” I tried to play it off but it left a bitter taste on my tongue.

Rae stops fussing with her hair and threw herself at me.

”Ow, what the- ”

”Thank you for this Amy, it means a lot. ”

I pat her head and groaned. ”Can breathe. ” I gasped and she breaks the hug, laughing at my misery. As she walks away, I wish I should have followed her. I was unaware of the events that would happen next. I didn know that it would be the beginning of her thorny path. Her biggest downfall.

If there is someone to blame, it should be them, The Big Five. Sinfully stunning, wealthy, wicked, and cruel. Yet, despite how horrible they are, they were able to capture everyone elses attention, luring the innocent ones into their trap, promising the glam and the privilege that they craved. Sadly, my best friend fell into their trap.

They knew what they were capable of and they used it to their advantage. Rae wanted that, she wants to be like them. But no matter how much she tried she will never be them. She can hang out or talk to them but she will never be part of their group. I had always known that Rae wanted everyone else attention. She thirsts for it and hungered the compliments people threw her way.

Despite her perfection, she wanted more.

She wanted what the Big Five have. But what she didn know is that she is just digging her grave. Once you fell into their trap, there is no way back.

The Big Five were like a drug. While you
e in high, you were unaware of the harmful effects it will cause you. Slowly, it will consume you until you
e hooked, and addicted. And when you
e under their grasp, you can never say no to their demands.

However, I can still fathom her sudden change. Since the day she met them, Rae devoted her life to being their loyal servant. I still hate the title she was given. Rae is a person, not some entertainment. The burning hatred I felt for them was beyond what someone could ever imagine. They are the worst people alive.

Not that mattered anymore, what was done is done. The Big Five had committed crimes against me. And I am going to make them pay. Whether it was directed to me or someone else, I will not hesitate to expose their ugly selves in the world. I had enough of their bullshit, to think they can get away with everything? Nah, I think not.

Because behind the glamour and their wealth, hides the monster within.

And by the time I was done with them, they will be the ones who will look up to me.

I will take everything they care about.

My endgame is to watch them fall. Its not about gaining powers no Im far from that. What I want to see is for them to suffer.

To feel humiliated. To understand how it feels to sacrifice everything for someone you loved.

Pain.

I wanted them to feel pain.

This drive to deliver them to their doom. I can wait for it to happen.

I want revenge.

For the few past months, I have studied them. Their strengths, weaknesses, the places they like to frequent, and their family and friends. After all, I was evil just like them and I will not hesitate to use and exploit their weaknesses if necessary.

I will do everything in the name of revenge.

Because, while they enjoy their lavish and glamorous life, they were unaware that maybe, or just maybe that someone out there knew the truth and is digging into their graves and unraveling the truth.

In anyones eyes, The Big Five were just normal and troublesome kids, but looks can be deceiving sometimes. Don be fooled by their charismatic charms and persuasive words, for they are vile and treacherous snakes.

I have seen it many times, saw how they act, how they twisted the truth and convinced everyone into believing their fabricated lies.

But, that is where they are wrong, they can fool everyone but not me.

Little by little the public will see what they truly are. What monster lurks underneath their façades. How vile and evil they are. Its a long process but I am willing to risk everything just to bring them down.

The Big Five will not know what will hit them, and by the time they realized, I was long gone.

I might not possess the abilities they have but sure Ive got tricks under my sleeves. They can enjoy their lavish lifestyles, for now, however, I advised them to count their days. Because their time has come and nothing can save them.

Not even their money.

In a society where money is everything, lets see if their money can save them.

This plan should be foolproof. Because the group that I want to take down is not to be taken lightly. They were the Elites. The top dogs of society. I have studied their profiles in the picture but meeting them in a flesh was different.

Claires cold cobalt eyes narrowed as she snapped her perfectly manicured nails in front of my face.

”Are there any more questions? ” I snap out of my thoughts and schooled my expression. Anger coiled in my belly and I want to throttle her so bad that she will be crying home for help.

”No. ”

”Very well, I have important things to attend to. Ugh, God knows I have wasted enough time on this tour. ”

She muttered the last sentence to herself but I still caught it.

After she left, I was left with my thoughts.

”Such a bitch. I wonder what Rae saw in her? she is so fake that I wonder if her boobs are real. ”

A loud laugh boomed behind my back and I gasp in surprise and turned my head, eyes narrowed into slits.

The boy was hunched over, hands on his stomach as he wipes the invisible tears in the corners of his eyes. I rolled my eyes and walk away. I don have the leisure time to deal with brainless people. I ignored him and clutched the strap of my bag in my hands. I fasten my little legs and look for my designated room. Heavy footsteps followed.

”Hey, wait up! ”

I continue to ignore him and descend the stairs. I was halfway when the boy jumped on the steps and blocked my way.

I groaned in annoyance.

Can he take a hint? He is so dense and I wanna smack some sense in his **ing head. My left eye twitched and I narrowed my eyes at him.

”What do you want? ” I snipped, venom laced in my voice. How can I be so careless? Anger burned my skin, like a live wire snapping. I berated myself for being careless. I was in the territory of an enemy and I can not have any more slip-ups.

”Just a moment. ” He pants, hands on his knees while he catches his breath.

”I didn expect that these little legs can move faster. ”

”Its that a compliment or an insult? Because you
e about to answer with my fist. ”

I gritted my teeth annoyed when he didn answer. I crossed my arms and glared at him.

The boy stood at least six feet and two inches. Sweat beaded on his neck, and the shirt he wore hugged his body perfectly, accentuating the muscles on his arms. His hair was blonde, and when he lifts his face, I catch the hazel hues of his orbs. Stunning, and so mesmerizing.

No. Snap out of it. I can have any more distractions.

Remember, Amelia. Boys like him are dangerous.

”You
e blocking my way, please get out. ” I hissed and eyed him in disdain.

”You didn know who I am, don you? ” he states bluntly, the playfulness long gone and replaced with amusement.

I masked the anger in my voice racking my brain for any recognition of this man. When I find nothing, I smiled at him sweetly.

”No, and please kindly ** off. ” I pushed past him but he didn budge.

Is this man made of rock or something?

”You have guts. New girl. ” I took a step back and braced myself. My shoulders were tensed and I prepared my body for the retaliation.

No one has talked to her like that and left unscathed. You
e lucky that I was the one who caught it not them. ”

”Okay, so? what would you do about it? ” I challenge with the edge in my voice.

This man is asking for it. He took a step back and I breathe a sigh of relief.

”Nothing, just be careful next time. ”

With that, he puts his hands in his pockets and walked away.

”What a weird guy. ” I thought to myself, my hands are still shaking from the adrenaline. I was not used to fighting physically, but what I lack physically, I compensate for with my brain.

Going back, as far as I know, the Big Five has only five members. I haven seen his face and this is concerning. I hate that I didn know anything about my enemy. Its like walking in the fire in a blindfold, and I hate it.

Gritting my teeth, I wandered through the grand hallways. The Victorian sculptured art greeted my eyes and I take in the beautiful paintings of the school, with cream-colored walls I feel like I was in a massive palace. I ran my eyes to the paintings appreciating the origin of the academy. Many prodigies were from this school and were well known in different parts of the world.

I wandered until I reached the music hall. I carefully opened the door and was mesmerized at the sight in front of me. There was a big chandelier hanging on the ceiling, the room was painted gold, and there were sculptures of Olympian Gods in the corner, the sunbeams only highlighting the beauty of the room, so ethereal.

The ray bounces on the wooden polished floor as I bask in the beauty and aesthetic of the room. Different instruments are neatly placed in the corner. In the heart of the room sat the grand piano. I brushed my hands on the smooth lid of the piano and gently opened it. It was my favorite instrument, Rae and I used to play it together, but when her foster mom died, she stopped playing. The death of her mother broke something in her and she was never been the same. That is why Rae became eager to get the Big Fives attention, she craved the affection and the devotion that comes along with it, and to fill the void inside her heart.

Once I settled myself on the leather cushion seat, I brush my fingers on the keys. It felt foreign, i
