Devin confronts Pepper, his nemesis, in a fight that changes his life.
I took a step back, stunned into silence. Never had anyone said something so vile, so incredibly evil to me as that. I didn’t know whether to lash back at her or run away crying so I just froze, unable to wrap my head around it. I was so appalled by what she had said that my mind must have wandered for a moment because I didn’t even notice what was happening until I heard the sharp, skin on skin, sound of the slap that followed Pepper’s cruel speech.
