"An eye for an eye only ends up making the whole world blind."

- Mahatma Gandhi


I stretched my arms, a yawn escaping my mouth. I rubbed my eyes tiredly and looked over at the clock, it was 6 o'clock in the morning. I woke up thirty minutes before my alarm for school usually goes off.

That's a first.

I slipped the warm blankets off my body and immediately felt naked even though I was still wearing the same clothes that I wore yesterday. I looked down at myself confused, I usually wore pajamas to bed.

I brushed my thoughts away and got out of bed and walked over to the closet, well, let me rephrase that, I tried to walk to my closet. I took three steps and tripped over a body sleeping on my floor.

What the heck?

"Watch where the hell you're going, " Axel mumbled tiredly.

"Axel? You better have a damn good reason why you're sleeping on my floor." I couldn't help the anger that filled my voice, I still wasn't over everything he said to me.

"Like I could leave you alone in here after what happened." He said just as angry, sitting up in his pallet on the ground.

Instantly remembering what happened my head snapped to the window that the unidentified man climbed out of last night. My heart raced all over again, it could had gone so much worse than it did. So many questioned filled my brain like who was that person? What were they looking for? Or worse, how long have they been sneaking into my room?

"You slept there all night?" I asked my anger fading.

"Yeah." He grunted, not looking at me.

"You didn't need to do that, " I told him truthfully.

"I know." He stated.

I was taken back, I stared at Axel with my eyebrows furrowed. No matter how hard I tried I couldn't figure him out. It was moments like this where I think there is more to Axel, I think maybe he can't be all bad.

"You kept screaming in your sleep, I couldn't leave you like that." He spoke, finally looking at me.

I looked down at my socks embarrassed, I knew my nightmares were coming back but I didn't know they were that bad. In totally honestly, I don't remember anything that happened past standing in the hallway with Axel. I faintly remember Axel calling Rylan upstairs and them two bickering at each other but I don't remember going to bed or even what nightmare I had.

"And I figured you wouldn't be comfortable with me sleeping with you so I slept here." He stated, getting standing up.

Well, he was right about one thing, I definitely wouldn't had been okay with that.

"Thank you." I looked up at him.

We both stood there staring at each other for a good twenty seconds before I forced myself to look away from him. Axel's eyes always had a way to make me feel lost looking into them, they were so intense and alluring.

I could feel my face go pale when I watch Axel pick up his blankets and my journal fell from the tangle of covers. I instantly searched the bookcase and sure enough, my journal was missing.

"How much of this did you read!" I seethed, grabbing the book off the floor. My body started shaking violently, I wasn't sure if I should feel scared or angry.

"Enough." His eyes narrowed at me.

"Then you read the first page where it says DO NOT READ!" I hissed, quickly deciding to go with anger.

Axel didn't say anything he just watched me.

"Are you trying to make me hate you!" I asked, feeling heat run up my neck.

"God, what is your problem? What kind of mind games are you trying play?" I shouted, my stomach twisting.

"You know what?

ool but I kindly told him no.

I crawled back into my bed and laid there underneath the warm blankets. My eyes started tearing up again realizing that Axel had read my journal.

I was so sick of crying.

I blinked them away and forced myself back to sleep, If I wasn't awake I couldn't think.


I woke up a few hours later with my stomach growling. I really wanted Chicken Alfredo but I knew Rose didn't have the ingredients to make it.

I stumbled down the stairs still in the same clothes as yesterday I hadn't bothered to change. When I reached the last set of stairs to the main floor my eyes widen as I saw Camila coming up to the second floor to her room.

I guess I wasn't the only who decided to ditch school today.

I was sure she was going to give me a dirty look or say something insulting towards me but instead she gives me a sad smile.

"Are you okay Camlia?" I asked before she walked into her room.

She looked back at me and that's when I noticed the bruise that sat under her eye. Camila had beautiful tanned skin but not even her darker complexion could hide that bruise or cut on her lip.

"Did he hit you?" I asked, already knowing the answer.

"Don't worry about it." She looked at the ground, opening her door.

"Camila, let me help you." I pleaded with her.

Even though she was terrible towards me, I couldn't stand aside and watch this happen to her.

"You can't help me." She forced a laugh, her voice cracking.

"Let me try!" I pleaded.

"I can get Rylan or even Axel to help you." I insist.

"You can't!" She shouted quickly.

"I'm not going watch this happen to you, " I told her, my voice surprisingly strong.

"Why? I watched it happen to you, I defended him when he forced himself on you." Tears started falling out of her eyes.

"That doesn't matter anymore, " I told her.

"Mia he wants you, he's not going to stop sending people after you." She swallowed hard.

"This isn't about me right now." I brushed off the sinking feeling in my stomach.

"You need to leave him, " I demanded.

"God Mia, don't you think I've tried?" She whined.

"The moment I found out he tried to rape you I tried to leave him but he threatened me." A sob left her throat.

"How did he threaten you?" I asked carefully.

"He said if I left him or got anyone from Black Spades involved he'll kill my brother."
