Revenge

By Letitia Elizabeth Landon

Imagine there's a new student in class. They're mega cute, and you've been flirting with them ever since you met each other. Unfortunately, the student has eyes for another, not you. This makes you fill with rage. Not rage towards whom the student yearns for, but rage for the new student. Why don't they only see you? Why do they have to be so horrifically blind as to not see what's right in front of them?


"Revenge" by Letitia Elizabeth Landon is an eerie tale of rejection gone wrong. It's about a girl who loves this dude who loves a different person who is seemingly perfect, so the girl decides to get revenge by not letting the one she loves be able to be with the one he wants to be with.


"But this is fitting punishment, To live and love in vain, -

Oh my wrung heart, be thou content, And feed upon his pain."
