Caveman Instinct Book One

Message from the Author

This book is set in Australia. In Australia the legal age to drink, vote, get married and so on is eighteen. The characters speak English Australian, so if you see the word ‘Arse' instead of ‘Ass' it is because that's how we say it in Australia where the book is set. If you find a word you aren't familiar with, look it up, or message me, I'd be happy to talk with you.

Thanks for looking and I hope you enjoy my book.

Chapter One


I drove my Jeep into a parking spot at Reed Creek High School. My twin brother, Derick, got out of the passenger seat and I grabbed my bag and followed him. "What's the rush, bro?"

Derick didn't slow but glanced over his shoulder, his blond hair falling into his eyes. He was my total opposite in looks, where I had jet-black hair his was blond, my eyes were blue and his were brown, I had dimples and he didn't. He had big full lips and mine were thin. Derick looked like our mother and I took after our father, like our older brother, Dustan. About the only thing we shared was the same height and build. We were the tallest teenagers at our school at six four, and the most built. We liked working out, playing rugby league, and were swimming champions.

"New girl, and I wanna check her out. Brad messaged me to say she's hot."

Rolling my eyes, I slowed down and let my brother go. I didn't do schoolgirls. I'd always had a thing for older women. I liked my sex dirty and hard, I'd known it from the first time I slid between a chick's thighs. I liked control, it was in my DNA. I'm not saying some of the girls at school who threw themselves at me couldn't take me, but I'd rather not fuck a girl and have to see her again. I don't date. I fuck. I've never taken a woman or girl on a date and I don't intend to.

My family had what I called a curse, we knew who our soul mate was and we were possessive and turned caveman when we found them. My parents had been together for thirty years and my father still chucked a fit if any man came onto my mother. He made sure she had protection and treated her like a priceless fragile flower. My uncles were the same with their wives, and my grandparents and so on. I didn't want that shit, I was happy with my one-night stands.

Walking to my group of friends, in our usual spot down by the oval, I dropped my bag and sat. "So, party at my house next weekend. The parents are still in Melbourne and won't be back for two weeks. Dad's closing a deal on another apartment building."

"Sounds good. Do you want some cash toward a keg?" Scott asked. He was my best friend and one of only two others in the school who came close to my brother and me in height and build.

"Nah, Derick and I got it, man."

"Where is he?"

I smirked at Brad. "Where the fuck do you think. You messaged him and told him a new chick started at school so he went to check her out."

Brad grinned. "I saw her walking to school. She is hot. I don't know much about her, besides her being stacked. She has huge knockers."

I laughed. "We won't see Derick for a while then. You know he's a breast man."

Everyone laughed and I laid back and listened to my friends make bets on who would fuck the new girl first.



I hated my mother right now more than ever. Why did she have to overdose on meth? I was doing fine raising myself until she took too much while I was staying over at my friend Jess's house. Sighing, as guilt assaulted me, I berated myself. I should have stayed and looked after her like I always did. My grandpa thought it was my fault. He didn't want me, but I was under eighteen and the state had given me a choice, him or a foster home. I chose him. I only had a little under two months until I was eighteen and I intended to keep my head down and show my grandpa I was no trouble and would help him like I had my mum.

My grandpa lived in the small coastal town of Reed Creek. He owned a shitty little bar, which was a cover for his drug dealing. My mother used to sell it too, when she wasn't using it for her own pleasure.

So now I lived with my arsehole of a grandpa and was starting at a new school third term of year twelve. I was young to be in my last year of school, most of my peers were already eighteen, but my mother had started me as early as she could and I worked my arse off to keep high grades so they didn't repeat me.

Sitting in the principal's office, she smiled at me. "You have great references and high grades, but here in Reed Creek you will be the youngest in your year. If you like we can place you in the year below with girls your own ag-"

"No," I interrupted. "Um … I mean no thank you. As you can see I have high grades and have no problem keeping up. I'm sure my age won't stop me from making friends."

The principal studied me for a moment before she slowly nodded. "Okay. Would you like me to introduce you to some girls?"

I picked up my school bag. "No thanks."

"Fine." She passed me a piece of paper. "Here's your class schedule. You have business studies first, which is over in A block, then English in C block. There is a map on the back, but if you get lost I'm sure anyone will help you."

Smiling, I took the piece of paper, scurried out of the office, and started toward my first class. I could feel everyone's eyes on me. I hunched lower and tried to make my already short five-two height smaller. Yanking on the skirt, I hated this school's uniform, it was a grey and green pleated skirt with a green blouse. I bought two sets and an extra blouse. This school was strict with their uniform and I was told I needed closed-toe black shoes. So I had bought cheap Mary Jane's. The skirts were expensive and I bought them second hand and it had used up my entire Centerlink payment for the fortnight. My grandpa wouldn't give me a cent of his money, but I was happy he was letting me keep my Centerlink payments. At least he had food in the house unlike my mother, and grandpa ate everything I made. He never said thank you, but I wasn't offended.

Looking around, I searched for where I needed to go. This was the only high school in Reed Creek, so it was big. Stopping in the middle of the quad I stared at the building looking for the letters.

"Can I help you?"

I turned and gazed into a gorgeous male's face. His eyes were a dark tree back brown and his blond hair sat just past his ears. He had the longest eyelashes and the biggest lips I'd ever seen on a male. He was also built like a linebacker, gosh, what was he being fed?

"Yes please. I need to find block A."

He smiled showing perfect white teeth. "You just came from the office, it's in C block." He leaned over me. "A block is here." He pointed to my right.

"Oh, I see now. It's in a horseshoe shape. Thanks."

"No problem. My name is Derick, Derick Silverman."

"Hi, Derick. I'm Jade, Jade Black. If you didn't figure it out by now I am new here."

"Nice to meet you. Welcome to Reed Creek."

"Thanks." The bell rang. I appreciated Derick's help, and he was hot, but I didn't date … ever. Derick may seem nice but I knew the drill with boys and new girls. I'd seen it in my old school. "It's nice meeting you, but I better get to class. I wouldn't want to be late for my first class." Before he could respond I rushed away, not even bothering to look behind me at his reaction.


The bell rang and I gathered my things and went toward the library. I knew I was the hot topic. From what I had learned, Reed Creek didn't get many new students, at least not at this time of year. Derick had been in two of my classes. Each time he'd looked like he was going to sit with me so I made sure I sat by someone else.
