"Sweet women leave a bad aftertaste in my mouth, because I feel guilty for dirtying them." Jagger tightened his grip on my wrists, making me scream into his hand. He smiled and lowered his beautiful face to mine, his expression almost evil. "But you, Camila, would taste so fucking bitter I wouldn't feel any guilt whatsoever."
Jagger stalks the women in the house, making some nervous and others excited. (Rita's and Camila's viewpoints).
Christo stalks Sophia in the past, while Jagger reveals a dangerous side of his personality. (Sophia's viewpoint).
This is episode 10 of a serial that is selling very well, both in English and Italian.
Jagger was proposing to me! He was kneeling behind the school gym, holding a big ring up for me to take. I couldn’t believe it. Yeah, Christo Donatelli had warned me that this would happen, but Jagger and I had only been going out for a few months, so I hadn’t taken the Padre’s brother seriously.
Jagger’s stunning face started to scrunch up, the look in his eyes telling me he knew I wasn’t going to accept the ring. “Please say yes,” he said.
He pulled the ring back and pushed to his feet. He was wearing his school uniform: tan trousers, a white button-down shirt, a red tie, and a blue blazer. He looked so nice, but he still wasn’t Frano. Even though I found Jagger attractive and liked kissing and talking to him, he just didn’t make my heart pound fast like his cousin did. No, Frano made it soar; just the thought of him warmed me all over.
“Why can’t you marry me?” Jagger said, his voice sounding hurt.
“We’re too young,” not to mention I want your cousin.
“I’ll be seventeen soon, and you’re almost eighteen.”
“It’s still too young, and I’m only your first girlfriend. Don’t you want to go out with more people?”
His face dropped. “No! Why would you say that?”
I looked down at the concrete ground. “Because, I want to...”
“You want to what?!”
“I want to break up.”
I looked back up, now even more upset. I didn’t want to hurt him, because he was so nice, but he would feel even worse if he found out I lusted after his cousin.
