The Joy of Revenge Novel Chapter 4

CHAPTER 4 Infatuated
Cristos
It was already a Friday. The last day of the school week. I was looking forward to some free time, so I could go over my research on Joy Taylor. Actually, I didn’t have much to go by.
“Cristos, have you found anything?” Xavier asked. He was so impatient. He thinks digging up
the past was so easy.
“Nothing yet. I told you it’s as if she doesn’t exist,” I said. “Let me rephrase that. It’s as if whatever happened to her didn’t happen.”
“You know that’s only possible if someone can control all the people in town, including law. enforcement. Who in that town is the richest and most powerful?” Xavier asked.
We were outside the library, seated on a bench under a tree. We noticed Joy would go directly to the library between classes and so to keep an eye on her, we would usually sit here and wait for her.
“I’d say the mayor,” I answered.
“Then I say focus on him,” Xavier said, checking his watch. “S hit! My next class is about to start. Keep an eye on her for me, will yah? Text me where she goes. I’ll see you later.” He ran off to his building, leaving me behind typing on my laptop, continuing my research.
I really hated it when everything leads to a dead end. There were no newspapers or any video mentioning Joy Taylor’s assault. I went back as far as five years and I still didn’t find anything. All I found was how the good mayor Thedore Cohen was making New Salem a town of the future.
Maybe Xavier was right. It had to be someone powerful enough to block the media and intervene with law enforcement. If it wasn’t the mayor, then who?
I was looking into information about the Sheriff of New Salem when at the corner of I saw Joy exit the library heading towards the students’ cafeteria. I didn’t notice it was already lunch time. I qu

CHAPTER 4 Infatuated
I sighed and shook my head as I walked. Such immature minds.
They would never know what Joy has been through unless they walked a mile in her shoes. I actually doubted if they would survive if it happened to them.
I rushed up from behind her and quickly held the door open so she could pass through. She
looked up
at me, surprised to see me holding the door for her. She smiled shyly at me and nodded her head gratefully. I noticed her eyes were a stunning shade of blue and green… very beautiful.
“Uhm, thank you,” she said. She had a really sultry voice. No wonder Xavier liked her.
“No problem,” I replied. She entered the cafeteria and fell in line. I fell in line right behind
her.
I never noticed how tall she was. Standing straight, she reached up to my shoulders. She was slender and had long legs. I noticed how graceful her hands were and that she had clean fingernails. When she flipped her long chestnut brown hair, I could smell the floral scent of her shampoo.
When we reached the cashier, I thrusted my money at the cashier before she could pay.
“I got this,” I said, smiling at her.
“You don’t have to,” she said, pouting her lips. She actually looked adorable.
“You can buy me lunch next time,” I told her. When I said that, she grinned and nodded her
head.
“Okay, next time then,” she murmured sweetly. “Thanks again.” She was picking up her tray so she could find a table to sit at when a familiar voice spoke from behind us.
“Cristos, I was looking for you at the-” Xavier suddenly stopped when he realized who I was talking to. “S-Sorry…” Joy smiled at Xavier which made him blush.
“Uhm, hi! C-Cristos here was so kind to pay for my lunch,” she said. “Thank you, C-Cristos.” She took her tray and found a spot all the way in the corner away from all the students.
I smiled. I liked how she said my name.
“Da mn it, Cristos! You should have texted me you were here. I could have bought her lunch!” Xavier exclaimed, utterly irritated at me, as we seated ourselves just a few tables away from

her.
“Sorry! I was so engrossed in studying her. She has really beautiful eyes,” I mentioned. He raised an eyebrow, surprised I had noticed her eyes. Then he leaned back on his chair, sulking.
“I saw her first!” Xavier mumbled, like a child.
“We all saw her at the same time, Xavier. Hey! I’m invested on whatever this is too, you know. Just calm down. Sebastian and I, we want to help her too. Together, we’ll find whoever did this to her and make them kneel in front of her. I swear it,” I told him, trying to cheer him up. He sighed and leaned forward.
“I’m just protective of her. I don’t want to see the sadness in her eyes anymore.” Xavier’s voice had a tenderness in it that I have never heard before. Was he in love with her…
already?.
“Don’t worry, Xavier.” Sebastian suddenly appeared and slid into a chair beside Xavier, giving him a sandwich and a drink. “I already talked to my mother. She’s arranging for our medical colleagues to help Joy.”
Xavier turned around to glance at Joy who was reading a textbook while finishing her lunch.
“Whatever the costs, Sebastian, I will pay. Just tell them to make her beautiful just like her
heart.”
I glanced at Sebastian whose eyes were also on Joy Taylor. I sighed. All three of us secretly watching her.

It was so weird. We haven’t even formally met, but the three of us were already infatuated
with Joy.

I will never forget that I wasn’t given the justice I deserved. I want revenge. I want them dead… So do my three lovers. The Underbosses of the Blood Disciples. * I knew Xavier was in love with Joy the moment he met her. However, it didn’t stop me or Cristos from falling in love with her too. “I doubt an empire will come crushing down because we love the same girl,” I said. De Luca looked at me, shocked. * “Do you guys steal money from other people?” I asked, completely shocked at his revelation. I knew Cristos was good with computers and encryption, I just didn’t know how far it went. “Sometimes. Sometimes we manipulate, troll, steal incriminating evidence. The usual.” “Our fake ID’s…did you make them?” I asked. I was impressed because they looked so real. “Judging from the monitors, it looks like a call center. How could you have the capital? The security to work without even being scared of law enforcement?” “Sebastian, Xavier and I were born into this kind of life. Since we were little, we were trained to work as a unit just like our fathers. Mama Rose isn’t just a simple housewife. She is also part of the organization and sits as a third high ranking official,” Cristos explained. “Sebastian, Xavier and I are underbosses of the Blood Disciples, the ruling party of the West Coast Mafia. Our fathers are the bosses while our mothers and sisters are consiglieres. We are in training to become the bosses once our fathers retire. Sebastian is in charge of merchandise, ports, and businesses while Xavier handles the trash. I, on the other hand, am in charge of the virtual world. Anything digital goes through me.” * After leaving her small town, Joy Taylor gets a second chance at life and love when she crosses paths with three handsome young men in college. Now, she’s happy, prosperous, and in love with three beautiful men who think the world of her. It seems there’s nothing else she could ask for. Her life felt complete. However, she could never let go of the pain of her past. Especially when she discovers the four boys, who raped her during their junior year in high school, have done it again. This time, the young girl wasn’t so lucky. Her b*dy was found floating in a lake near town. Now, Joy is back in New Salem, seeking her revenge. Ten years may have gone by, but revenge has no expiry date. Unfortunately for Joy, things are not always what they seem.
