Devious Game by Bri Blackwood (Brentson University Book 1) Read Online Chapter One


The surrounding air was electric, buzzing with excitement. Understandably so since it was graduation day. Soon-to-be graduates were sitting in white folding chairs as the ceremony progressed, while their families were attempting to document every moment.


This should have been one of the happiest days of my life, but my heart was buzzing for a different reason.


My leg bounced up and down as I took in the scene unfolding around me. Today was the day I’d been waiting for, but not for the reason most people would think. I’d been counting down to this day for years and finally it was here. In a little less than an hour, I’d be leaving this town for good.


A promise to my mother was the last thing standing between me and freedom, and I couldn’t wait to exercise it. I told her I would walk across that stage, and I was determined to do it. When we were directed to stand up and walk to one end of the stage by a volunteer, I almost hopped out of my seat, too eager to get this over.


“Allison Fredericks.”


I held my breath as she walked across the stage, knowing that it was almost my turn to go. After all, we practiced the day before so that we all were aware of what would be happening.


“Jamie Gibson.”


I sucked in a deep breath as I was now next in line to cross the stage. I watched as Jamie shook the school principal’s hand and smiled when he received his diploma.


“Raven Goodwin.”


The crowd applauded, and I bit my lip as I walked up the stairs. I knew the claps were merely polite applause given at graduation ceremonies. Would it have been nice to have a host of family standing there watching me walk across this stage? Sure. But I only had one objective in mind. The lack of anyone cheering for me up there wouldn’t change anything.


I heard a deeper voice cheer as the claps slightly died down. The corner of my lip twitched, but I didn’t turn to face the crowd. I forced myself to continue walking forward.


“Good work.” Mr. Jones, the principal of Brentson High, grinned when I reached him. I gave him a tight smile and a head nod as he held out his hand for me to shake.


Mama, I did it.


I fought to keep my feelings in check. Overcoming numerous barriers that tried to hold me back had been nothing short of a miracle. Suffering from ADHD caused its own set of challenges, but also having to deal with the only parent you’ve ever known tragically dying was enough to make anyone be fucked up. While some concessions had been made to help as I grieved, the wound and heartache I felt was still fresh. I took a deep breath to steady my emotions before I investigated the crowd. As I walked back toward my seat, I found a smiling face staring directly back at me.


Nash.


I knew I was going to break his heart, but I had no other choice. I needed to leave this town and fast. My plan had been to leave as soon as I got this piece of paper, but I couldn’t leave without saying goodbye to him.


Even if he didn’t know that this was goodbye.


I made it seem as if I, like many of the students here, would be attending Brentson University in the fall. After all, why wouldn’t I want to attend one of the most prestigious colleges in the world, especially when it was in my backyard?


That wouldn’t be the only dream I was giving up.


I smiled at my soon-to-be-ex-boyfriend as I walked to my seat. The connection we shared at that very moment was what I hoped I could use to concentrate on the rest of the ceremony.


My thoughts were interrupted when a large round of applause brought me back to the present. It did not surprise me that the announcer was about to say Nash’s name.


“Nash Henson.”


The applause only grew louder as he walked up to collect his diploma. None of this was surprising. Nash was Brentson’s crowned golden boy and star quarterback. His father was the town’s mayor and his mother served as one of the most involved first ladies this town has ever seen.


Which always made me wonder what Nash had seen in me. I’m sure there were “more suitable” women he could have dated, but after a teacher put us together in a group project during our junior year, we were inseparable. We made plans about what our freshmen year at Brentson would look like, even though for me, that wouldn’t be the case.


Thankfully, the ceremony didn’t drone on for too much longer and soon I saw my classmates gearing up to do what everyone expected of them, even when we were told not to: throw their caps in the air.


When cheers erupted around me, the bubbles in my stomach grew. The ceremony was over and it was almost time for me to leave. With former students, now alum, being allowed to move freely, it didn’t take long for Nash to find me in the crowd.


Just looking at him made my body heat up, a reaction that I couldn’t contribute to the heat of the sun falling on us while we stood in these long blue graduation gowns. While I felt ridiculous in this gown and had hurriedly unzipped it to show off one of the few dresses I owned, he wore it like a supermodel. From his dirty blond hair, down to his broad shoulders, and his well-defined abs. It should have been criminal to hide his physique under the button-down, slacks, and shapeless gown, but he wore it well. His tall frame forced me to look up at him if I wanted to stare into his beautiful, blue eyes.


In his eyes, I could see warmth and kindness, but most importantly, there was love. It was like a stab to the gut because of what I had to do.


“Hey.”


One word was all it took to suck all the air out of my lungs. Staring back at him, a world of pain fell over me.


“Hey yourself.”


“We did it.”


I nodded. “That we did.”


This school year hadn’t been easy for either of us, but through the trials that were thrown our way, we grew stronger, and our bond blossomed. And here I was about to ruin everything.


“Your mother is proud of you.”


My lip trembled and I looked down.


Don’t cry, Raven.


A light breeze blew between us, and he lifted my chin up so that my gaze met his. With his other hand, he tucked a piece of my dark-brown hair behind my ear. My eyes watched his lips as he leaned forward, and they drifted closed when my lips met his. The kiss warmed my soul like nothing else. It hurt knowing this would be the last time I would see him. But it was for the best—even if he didn’t know it yet.


“I love you, little bird.”


Him telling me that he loved me was one thing, but him using the nickname that he’d given me was on another level. The deep breath I took was an attempt to hide the pain from my face because I knew he would be able to tell that something was wrong.


“I love you.” I almost choked on the words as they left my mouth. “You should go and be with your family.”


Nash looked behind him as I took a small step to the side to get a glimpse of his parents. One parent and his sister gave me a small smile while the other parent regarded me coldly. If I was being honest, that had been what I’d expected. I bit back an expression that I was sure would start something and turned my attention back to Nash. I wanted to enjoy what would be our very last moment together.


“Meet up with me tomorrow night. I would say right now, but I have family obligations that I can’t get out of.”


Nash’s statement left no room for argument, which was why I didn’t offer one. “Sure.”


“I’ll swing by your place at eight? Maybe we could go somewhere and…” His voice trailed off and I knew what he was getting at.


He and I had sex for the first time a few weeks ago, which was late compared to when some of our friends had done the deed. The moments we’d shared had been magical and would be something I’d always cherish. I nodded, knowing damn well I wouldn’t be there when he arrived. I took a couple of deep breaths to hold back the tears that threatened to fall.


“Raven?” I turned and smiled at my best friend since practically birth, Isabelle “Izzy” Deacon. She was the only one who knew what I had planned. I gave her a quick nod and looked back at the only person I thought I would ever love. Too bad he would grow to hate me.


“I have to go.”


“I should probably get going too.” Nash gave me a warm smile before he kissed me once more.


After I was gone, I would always remember the feeling of his lips on mine. I said silent goodbyes with a hug that lasted way longer than it should have, and then I backed away before I could run into his arms and forget about the choice I was about to make.


I gave him a small wave before turning around and walking over to Izzy.


“You know you don’t have to do this, right?”


“I have no other option.”


“We can figure something—”


I shook my head. “My staying here causes a shit ton of problems. It’s best that I leave, and I’m so grateful that you’re helping me pull this off.”


“Of course. You know I’d do anything to help you.”


I glanced at her and lost the fight with my tears. I wiped at my cheeks, not caring if I smudged the little makeup I had put on earlier today.


“Thank you. There is one favor I want to ask of you, though.”


“Yes?” I saw her glance at me as I dabbed my eyes.


“Tell Nash I’m sorry. For everything.”
