The Abhorsen serie
When I was in the 6th grade my homeroom teacher required we give everyone in class a Valentine’s Day card. Those little ones you buy in a pack of like 40. I remember we couldn’t open them until they were all passed out and most of them were just run of the mill “happy Valentine’s Day!”, but this one boy had taken the time to write you’re ugly, ugly ugly ugly all over the card. Worse part was my mom was really good friends with his mom. It hurt when I received it, only because I thought we were friends. He ended up messing with a dog through a fence one day, only to learn there was no fence between the overgrown brush and the dog. 100+ stitches later and he never looked normal again. I felt bad when it happened but went about my life. Asshole ended up asking me out after high school. I told him to shove it.
