Ordinary Girl by Ripley Harper

ORDINARY GIRL

Where can I run to escape the darkness inside me?

Three years after moving to this backcountry small town, I’m still “the new kid” – that freak with the strange hair, the attitude, and the dying mother. Which is unfair, really, because apart from a few unfortunate incidents, I’ve done my best to fit in. To be normal, nice, and unthreatening. An ordinary girl, just like everyone else.  

But lately I’m losing snatches of time again, just like I did after my mom’s death. I’m dreaming again too: strange, blood-soaked nightmares filled with terror and suffering. Only the blood isn’t mine. Nor is the terror or the suffering.

And now my ultimate crush – a Viking-type sex god too hot to live – decides to tell me I have “magic powers” because I’m the “last descendant” of an “ancient bloodline” controlled by a “secret Order”, and that his family has been “keeping” mine safe for centuries. 

For crying in a bucket.   

This, I guess, is what they mean when they talk about life falling apart. At school, the Alphas (a group of rich, popular meatheads) are planning to publicly humiliate me. At home, everyone I trust is keeping some dark and ominous secret from me.

Sometimes I think no one around me is quite what they seem.

Least of all myself.

It’s time to find out who I really am. Or rather, what I really am.

Look, I know something dark and powerful is slumbering inside me. But just how dark? And just how powerful?

Gunn tells me the power inside me can drive men insane. That I’ll soon be able to control the hearts and minds of others with a single word, a single glance. Ingrid is so worried about my mental health, that she’s willing to put me through the worst tortures imaginable “for my own good”. And the White Lady has raised an entire army of assassins to make sure I won’t grow into my full power. 

Still. I’m sure it can’t be that bad.

Can it?

I finally know the truth about myself. And it sucks.

It’s one thing to be thrown headfirst into a fairytale world filled with wonder and magic. 

It’s quite another to learn that you’re not the princess in the story after all.

Now that my life has completely imploded, I don’t know who to trust anymore. Especially once Gunn decides to take me to the Green Lady’s “secret village”, where I learn more about my family’s history than I ever wanted to.

Being stuck in the Amazon rainforest with only Zig and Jonathan for company is far less fun than I imagined. (And I imagined it would be a nightmare.) But eventually I do learn to trust them, which is kind of ironic since the one has vowed to kill me, and the other wants to impregnate me with a whole litter of creepy Pendragon babies.

Now, some people (Gunn, for example) might say you’re in trouble when your sworn enemies become your only friends.

But hey, what do they know?

Look, my life isn’t perfect.

The White Lady’s army of assassins becomes a bigger threat with every day that passes. My power is still in flux. The entire internet believes I’m a racist satanic freemason terrorist. And my attraction to Gunn is completely out of control.

But I’m sick of hiding. Of letting others make my decisions for me. 

I’m finally realizing that Disney ending I’ve subconsciously been waiting for – where the baddies conveniently tumble from high cliffs, never to be seen again – is never going to happen.

So. I’m ready to take control of my destiny.

After all, what’s the worst that can happen?
