Shout out to @ImTheBoss23 for the awesome cover.


Cody's POV

Thirteen seems to just shut down after Jason's persistent questions. She keeps her back to us as she continues chopping whatever it is she's making.

I glance over at Devin who looks back over at her and then to me and shrugs, as if to say 'don't look at me, I don't know what to do.'

He turns back to his chess game and glances up at Chase, who is sorely focused on Thirteen. I watch Devin switch some of Chase's pieces, and remove the queen altogether. I shake my head.

"Devin put the pieces back." Thirteen orders, and I watch his mouth drop open in shock.

"How? What?" He stutters. "You had your back turned!"

Chase looks down at the board and glares at Devin. "Where's my queen?" He questions.

Devin shrugs, a devious look on his face. "I don't know." He replies, before getting to his feet and bolting down the hallway, Chase gets up not to long after and runs after him.

Jason stands and looks between me and Thirteen. "I'm going to go for a swim." He announces before turning and leaving. I turn to Thirteen who's still chopping away.

"Thirteen, " I start.

"Cody, I really don't want to talk right now." She mutters.

I walk up behind her and put my hand gently on her shoulder turning her around to face me, the chopping knife still in her hand. I reach for it cautiously and place it on the counter next to me.

She shakes her head at my actions. "You act like I'm going to stab you."

"Well you never know." I say jokingly. "I'm just trying to live a little longer." She shakes her head again but smiles slightly.

"What is so wrong with the idea of you and me?" I ask after a moment of silence.

She sighs, "There's nothing wrong with it but that's all it is, an idea." She pushes away from me and heads off down the hall, "I'll be in the gym." She mutters.

"Can I give you a suggestion?" I turn and glare at an 'innocent' looking Zack.

"No." I growl sharply. He holds his hands up in mock surrender.

"Well I'm going to anyway." He says. "Maybe you should try being her friend first, and then something more."

"What the hell are you talking about?"

"Look, from what my brother's told me in the past, she's got good reason not to trust people. You might want to try to gain her trust, before trying to gain something else." He shoves his hands in his pockets and walks off. "Just a thought." He adds.

I ponder over his words, debating whether or not to listen to him. After all, I don't know that I can trust him. A crashing sound breaks me out of my train of thought.

"Devin." I mutter, and start heading off in the direction the sound came from. What did he demolish this time?

I turn into the gym, only to see a rack of weights scattered all over the floor, along with a broken table. Except, Devin isn't the one who's caused all of this. In the middle of the room Thirteen and Chase stand on sparring mats, each one going at the other.

I lean against the door frame as Thirteen gets in a good hit, and Chase dodges another. Zack stands slightly behind me in the door way just as Chase knocks Thirteen on the floor and she trips him onto his back, pinning him down.

"Can you two not destroy my house?" Zack grumbles.

Thirteen looks over at him with a raised eyebrow before getting to her feet and holding out her han

-" Before I finish my sentence, she has grabbed hold of Devin's arm and thrown him onto his back, giving Zack the chance to bail to other side of the room.

"Hey I wasn't done beating him to a pulp." Devin whines.

Thirteen ignores him and throws a punch at him that he quickly dodges.

"What the hell?" He shouts. "I didn't even do anything wrong this time!" She throws another punch and he takes a step back.

"Fight back." She orders him and I continue to stare. What the hell is she doing?

He holds his hands up in surrender. "I don't hit girls." He states. She raises her eyebrows at him.

Now that I think about it I've actually never seen Devin hit a girl...but this is Thirteen she can push you to do anything.

"Why? You scared?" She taunts. He just looks blankly back at her.

"Of you? Terrified." He answers seriously.

"Good." She says as she swings her leg around and kicks him in the side, she starts throwing more punches rapidly and harder and he continues to dodge or just take steps back with his hands still up in surrender.

"Seriously stop." He tells her and she ignores him, continuously throwing hits.

She pins him up against the wall and mutters something lowly to him, something no one else catches.

I watch as his whole body tenses up and his eyes flash in anger. What the hell has she done? I've never seen Devin angry before, at least not like this.

She barely has a chance to react before he puts his hands on her shoulders and shoves her. She flips herself and lands crouched down on all fours to prevent herself from falling. She gets to her feet and smiles at him in a taunting way.

"Still don't hit girls?" She asks in her 'innocent' voice.

He glares at her. "I don't think you count." He growls before charging at her.

She dodges him and smiles. "Now we've got a fight."

I've very sorry for the super long wait. Unfortunately I was unable to get around to updating.

However, I am on spring break as of right now so I'm going to do my best to get in another few updates by the end of the week. My goal is to completely finish this book before Mother's Day.

Thanks for reading and keep up with the votes and comments, I absolutely love to see you thoughts!
