Raven: To seek, plunder, or prey. To devour ravenously. To seize as spoil.
I am Raven.
I knew what it meant to fight my way through life.
I decided long ago I would take control of my future.
No more bug infested couches.
No more drug-addicted mothers or absentee fathers.
No more welfare checks or moldy bread.
No more settling.
I thought I had it all figured out, a way out of the hand I’d been dealt.
Until my life got turned upside down by two very different men who look at me with mirrored lust in their eyes.
I no longer know who I am or who I want.
The only thing I do know is, I am ravenous.
Despite the fact I know it is a disaster waiting to happen, I can’t stop it.
I’m afraid I will never be sated.
