************************************************

A couple days had passed since the day at the warehouse, and I've been avoiding Axel like the black plague hence. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't constantly on edge everywhere I went. I've been waking up with nightmares the past four nights over the past events. And to top it off I'm practically walking on eggshells around Rylan. I want to tell him everything that happened, but Axel said to keep my mouth shut.

Axel as continuously tried to talk to me but I somehow always find a way to evade him. I could tell he was growing annoyed with my constant diversions because he's always sending glares at my direction whenever do we manage to be in the same room, or knocking on my door, that I now kept locked. And don't get me started on the text messages.

He also refuses to teach me how to fight until and I quote "love myself." Which is oddly poetic for someone like Axel, who is a freaking gang leader and all. I still can't believe it, but at the same time, I can. I knew when I first saw Axel he was nothing but trouble, I just didn't know it would be this much trouble. Camila has made herself extremely scarce for the last week, I haven't seen her around the house much, I talked to Angelo about it and he said she's been stay with her friend. Something about that didn't settle right with me, but I didn't say anything.

I wonder what Angelo would say if he knew who his sister's boyfriend really was?

Camila had been in school but you'd never noticed, the girl that was once a fiery red girl was now a deeper, darker, a sadder shade of red. I remember the beginning of the week she was furious at me, sending death stares from across the gym floor but as the week progressed she only looked at me with dull eyes.

I got up from my bed and walked over to the mirror that hung on the sliding doors of the closet. Axel's words kept haunting me, I couldn't help but think maybe he was right, even though I would never admit it out loud.

For the last four days, I've been standing in front of my mirror topless, staring out myself. And when I could finally look at myself without tears threatening to spill out my eyes I was only left feeling anger and frustration. I definitely didn't love myself, I'm not sure if I ever fully could, however, I wasn't as repulsed with my body as I was before.

My fingertips grazed the smooth scar that runs up the side of my stomach, it was at least three inches long. I winced and pushed the memories out my head. I hated the hold my past had on me, letting me know it wasn't dead every chance it got.

"Mia, are you in there?" Rylan's voice asked. "We need to talk." He said sternly, knocking on the door.

I quickly put my hoodie back over my body and unlocked my door, opening it to come face to face with Rylan. He was standing in front of me with determination written on his face. I watched as walked into my room, not once taking his eyes off me.

"You need to tell me what's going on." He said sharply.

"Camila hasn't been home in days, and when she is here it's only for a few hours until she gone again. You've locked yourself in this room, not bothering to come out unless it's for school. And Axel has been antsy and I've never seen Axel antsy."

I've never seen this side of Rylan, he was usually so carefree, comedic and relaxed but you would have never guessed looking at him now.

"I can't, " I whispered, looking at the wooden floor.

"Mia please, I'm begging you cupcake, " Rylan spoke softly.

It was that moment I felt myself give in, I was going to have Rylan what happened eventually anyway.

"You can't tell any one, " I stated to him.

"I won't." He nodded his head.

"I'm serious Rylan I'm trusting you, don't make me regret it." I gave him a pointed look.

"I promise, I won't say a word."

I sat down on my bed and patted the spot next me, Rylan took the hint and pulped down beside me. I took one last deep breath before letting the cat out the bag. I told him everything, from what happened the first day of school to the day at the warehouse. Truth be told it felt good telling someone, a small weight was lifted. I was still nervous that Rylan wouldn't believe what I was saying was the truth but I tried not thinking about that.

"I'm sorry I lied to you, I didn't know what to do, " I muttered, fidgeting with my fingers.

"I'm not mad at you." He told me, catching me off guard.

"Really?" My head snapped up to his.

The determination that was once on his face was now replaced with sadness and remorse but his eyes held nothing but the fire of seven suns. Rylan was pretty much vibrating rage, but I could see he was trying to control it.

Suddenly Rylan sprung off my bed and marched across the hall to Axel's room, I quickly followed after him. When I got to him he was a

lays Mia Morrison 17 of New York. Cause of death: Kneed a gang leader in the penis."

I was about two steps away from saving my life when I felt strong arms wrap themselves around my waist sending me to an unanticipated halt. This is it, Mia, it was a good run.

"What demon possessed you to fucking do that?" He asked panting.

"Because I know you're not that stupid." Axel's warm breath hit my neck causing me to shiver in his arms.

I wanted to laugh but I knew it would only make the situation worse but I, a 5 foot 5 inched tiny teenage girl made Axel come to his knees. It was probably the most badass thing I've ever done in my entire life. I was definitely leaving this world in style.

Axel turned me around to face him, his arms still around my waist. He had sweat rolling down his forehead and water coming from his eyes and I instantly was filled with regret.

"I'm sorry." I mustered up the courage to look him in the eye. I was no longer proud of what I did.

"Oh, Angel you will be." His voice was now back to normal.

"I'm sorry, please don't kill me! I'll do whatever you ask!" The words rushed out my mouth.

"Whatever I want huh?" Axel said, a devilish look in his eyes.

I just nodded my head, he was right I was going to regret this. I watched as his eyes glanced down at my lips and back up to my face and then back down to lips again.

"Kiss me." He whispered softly, his breath hitting my cheek.

My heart nearly fell right to the floor. Is he actually crazy? I just freaking kneed him and he's asking me to kiss him!

"Ew no! I'm not kissing you." I made a face at him.

"You said whatever I want Angel." He smirked.

"Do you want me to knee you again?" I deadpanned.

"You made a deal." He huffed out in annoyance.

"What the hell is your problem?" I asked flabbergasted.

"What do you mean?" He asked.

"You have a girlfriend and you're standing here asking me to kiss you." I snapped angrily.

"I don't have a girlfriend." Now it was his turn to make a face at me.

"What about the girl you were kissing in the hall? Morgan or whatever." I rolled my eyes at the memory.

"Are you jealous?" He smirked down at me.

Was I jealous?

"Of course not! Don't be stupid." I hissed.

I was jealous. Why on earth was I jealous?

"Let's just say she doesn't like the equipment I'm packing." He nodded down to his pants.

"If Morgan is into girls then why was she kissing you?" I asked.

"It'll be explained in due time, but for now you owe me a kiss, " Axel smirked.

"You said we need to talk? What was that about?" I ignored his statement.

"Well maybe if you didn't ignore me for 4 days you'd know." His voice was hard and his eyes looked at me accusingly.

"Just because you risk your life every day doesn't mean you can risk mine too." I snapped at him.

"Well I hate to break it you princess but you're the one that risked both of our necks." He snapped right back.

With that Axel untangle his arms from my body and walk to his room, slamming the door behind him. How the hell was this my fault? I didn't do anything!

I walked into my room and shut the door, I replayed everything that just happened in the last ten minutes in my head. I was at a loss for words and the only thing I could think about was: Axel wanted me to kiss him.
