“What a shame.”
I’m not the kind of person to revel in one’s misfortune. As I watch my
younger cousin being led into the back of a police car, I feel nothing but sorry
for her. Really, I do. I know I stand to benefit most from her little mishap, but
that doesn’t mean I don’t hate this for her.
When our late grandfather’s lawyer contacted the two of us a few weeks ago
to inform us that one of us was eligible for his trust fund, I knew there would
be a catch. That sadistic little old man really pitted my cousin and I against
each other like this. Making us get married to get the money, but only leaving
it to whoever got it first? Classic grandpa.
Watching Amelia leave her own wedding in the back of a squad car would
have made him chortle, I’m sure of it. It’s a shame he’s no longer here to see
it. Instead, our entire family got to witness her launch herself at her complete
tool of a fiancé.
“Do you think they’ll lock her up?” my mom asks, the judgment in her eyes
clear as day.
“Mom!” I scold. I wish she weren’t like this. She probably thinks this is the
perfect opportunity for me to step into the limelight and get what my cousin
almost succeeded in beating me to.
My mother and her sister, Amelia’s mother, have always been competitive
from a young age. I mean, they were raised by the same man pitting my
cousins and me against each other, after all. That they’ve bought into this
ridiculous game of my late grandfather’s is no surprise, but I just wish they
didn’t have to use Amelia and I as game pieces.
“Don’t mom me,” she protests, but the smirk on her face tells me she’d ask it
again in a heartbeat. “I do feel sorry for your cousin. It’s an unfortunate
“No, Mom, I don’t think you do,” I sigh.
She huffs and turns away to watch the squad car pull away from the lot with
my cousin, Amelia, huddled in the back seat, surrounded by the puffy white
skirt of her dress. She and I aren’t as close as I wish we could be. Our parents
are constantly fighting, it seems. Still, unlike my mother, I don’t like that this
happened to her.
I love my mother to bits. She has been my biggest cheerleader throughout my
life, but she’s also been eager for me to try inheriting the money. It doesn’t
feel like it’s been done out of love; I’m pretty sure she just wants to spite her
sister. Now, it seems like it might happen after all. Amelia getting arrested
gives me an advantage.
