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

I stood there for a few moments, my back press against the shut door. My head was whirling with questions and guilt. I felt completely horrible about kneeing Axel. He didn't deserve that, especially not after the fact he did save my life not once but twice, and if I didn't feel bad before, now Axel's saying I had put us both into danger somehow.

Knowing I had to do something, I opened my door and slowing made my way across the hall, dragging my feet across the soft carpet. I knocked on Axel's door, the familiar anxiousness was crawling up my throat.

A few minutes went by and Axel still hadn't opened the door, which I don't blame him. I wouldn't open the door either if I was him.

I was about to turn around and head back to my room when his door suddenly opens. I reluctantly look up to Axel's face, it was blank as it always was. I opened my mouth desperate to say something but my voice couldn't make it passed the knot in my throat.

Axel obviously was not in the mood for my games because he scoffed and began to shut the door in my face, but I quickly stopped it with my foot.

"Can we talk?" I muttered looking at him.

"I don't know, I'll let you know in four days." He spat, trying to close the door again. I guess I did deserve that one.

"I'm sorry Axel, I know I was an ass to you." I rushed out before he shut the door, but my apology didn't stop him from closing the door, leaving me alone in the hall.

"In fact, I'm more than ass, I'm like the queen of the donkeys." I raised my voice so he could hear me through the door. If he didn't want to talk he could at least listen.

"Granted you're not the kindest person in the world and you're rather bipolar but that doesn't excuse what I did, " I spoke out loud.

"I don't honestly know why I kneed you, it's just you infuriate the living hell out me, " I told him hoping he was listening.

"That sounded harsher than I meant it to be!" I facepalm.

Way to go Mia.

"I'm also sorry I ignored you, I know that wasn't cool I was just...scared." My words got caught in my throat trying to tell him how I felt.

"I'm sorry If I hurt you." I sighed defeated, it was no use. If he didn't hate me before he definitely did now.

To my surprise, his door swung open revealing an amused Axel leaning against the door frame. I couldn't help but notice he was now dressed in his regular attire indicating he was leaving.

"See this is the bipolar tendencies I mention earlier, " I stated, giving him a weird look.

"Come on." Axel rolled his at me and started walking towards the stairs.

"Huh?" I looked over at him confused.

"Let's go Mia." He said slowly as if I was dumb.

"Where exactly are we going?" I asked him, the last time I went with him things didn't end well.

"Stop asking so many questions and come on." He said irritably.

And against my better judgment, I found myself following behind him, I had absolutely no clue what I was getting myself into. My stomach bubbled with a strange feeling of uneasiness or was it excitement?

When we reached the bottom floor I was shocked when Axel held the front door open for me. I gave him a curious look, but he wouldn't look down at me.

"Don't tell me you're getting soft on me Deacon." I mocked him, smiling.

"Remind me not to do anything nice for you ever again." He grunted, amusement clear in his voice.

I quickly walked to Axel's car, the cold weather nipping at my bare skin. I could tell it was becoming late afternoon because the sky was swirling with shades of pink and orange.

I got into the car and listened to the quiet rumble as it came to life. There was a thick tension between us as we sat in silence, Axel was focused intently on the road.

"It's not polite to stare, " Axel said, looking at me from the corner of his eye.

"What do you know about polite?" I teased.

" Touché." He smirked.

"Where are we going?" I asked him.

"Downtown, " he answered simply.

What are you up to Axel Deacon?

"We're not doing something for gang right?" I questioned, feeling nervous.

"No, it's just going to be us, Angel." He said quickly calming my anxiousness.

"Hey, Axel?" I looked over at him.

"What do you want?" He muttered.

"About what you said earlier, the whole putting both our necks at risk. What did you mean by that?" I wondered out loud.

Axel let out an annoyed sigh, I was certain he wasn't going to tell. He never tells anything I want to know. I guess it's like a common bad boy code or something. My eyes widen when I saw his pink lips part to speak.

"Noah is a leader of a different gang and since I kicked his ass the day he forced himself on you he has been sending his guys after me ever since. The guy at the warehouse was one of his men and

I could feel every cell in my body pulsing with excitement. My heart was going a mile a minute but I didn't care.

"Woah, calm down adrenaline junky." Axel laughed, shaking his head.

"You know, I should be mad at you, " I stated.

"But for some reason I'm not, it's probably because of all the paint fumes, but I'm not mad, " I spoke out loud.

"Remember you said if we get caught." Axel laughed. The sound of his laugh made me smile, it was contagious. It was sweet and genuine, two words I wouldn't necessarily use to describe Axel.

I watch as he peeked behind the building we were standing next too and looked where the car was parked.

"They're gone." He whispered.

A sigh of relief left my body and we slowly started watching back to Axel's car.

"Why didn't you do anything when I kneed you? I was ready for it. Heck, I already had my grave inscription thought out." I blurted out.

Suddenly Axel stopped walking and faced me, I froze as he stalked closer and closer until my back hit a random building.

I bit down on my bottom lip out of nervousness Axel automatically noticed and looked down at my lips, his dark eyes turning a shade darker.

"Do you think I'd hurt you, Mia." Axel's eyes jumped to my mine, looking at me with hurt now present. I automatically shook my head no, I was scared of Axel sure, but I honestly don't think he would hurt me.

"You need to stop doing that." He groaned, looking back down to my lips.

I quickly released my bottom lip letting it fall back into place. Axel eyes never left them, and I found a part of me wishing for him to put his lips on mine.

Oh, look how the tables have turned.

I felt his lips get closer to mine and body shook with anticipation. I swallowed hard and my breathing hitched when I felt his lips brush against mine.

Do it, kiss me.

Just when his lips where about to touch mine and I could already practically taste his lips an aggravate sigh left his mouth and he pulls away and starts walking towards the car.

"Why didn't you kiss me?" I basically threw a tantrum out of frustrated.

I wanted you to kiss me.

"I guess you caught me in a moment of redemption." He looks backs to tell me before getting into his car.

I didn't say anything and slowly walked to his car in disappointment. What's going on with me? Disappointment? I'm actually disappointed because Axel didn't kiss me? Who even are you anymore Mia?

The ride home was quiet other than the radio that Axel turned on to make the situation less awkward. I don't understand how literally hours before Axel was wanting me to kiss him and now when there was the perfect opportunity he blew it! It doesn't make any sense.

When we pulled into the driveway I wanted nothing more than to run in my room in embarrassment. I'm not sure why I'm so upset about not kissing Axel. It's not like I liked him, that would be ridiculous. Also, there was no possible way he liked me.

Right when I was about to get out of the car and make my great escape Axel stopped me.

"Mia." His voice was strong.

"Axel, " I repeated.

"What happened today, this doesn't make us friends." He smirked at me.

"I wouldn't dream of it." I couldn't help the smile that formed on my face.

Axel Deacon is going to be the death of me.
