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

I laid in bed that night staring up at the walls, my eyes didn't dare shut. My body was still in full panic mode, I've been home for around four hours and as far as I know, Axel nor Rylan have come home yet. I figured I would had heard Axel walk up the stairs or shut his door but every once in awhile I would get out of bed and knock on his door just to be sure he hadn't sneaked in without me knowing.

Shouldn't he be home by now? He should definitely be home by now.

My brain has this really bad habit of jumping to the worst possible scenario, so It was no surprise when thoughts of them being detained behind bars or even worse, lying somewhere hurt on the mountainside struck through my head like lightning.

They're okay, I kept reminding myself.

The girls and I waited downstairs for hours, hoping they'd walk through the door at any moment but they never did. Camila was the first to leave, she wanted to spend time with her brother before trying to sleep. Kina went to her room shortly after that, she could barely keep her eyes open. I would had still been down there if it wasn't for Rose telling I needed to get some sleep.

I was confused as to how Axel has lived here for seven years and Rose seemed to be oblivious as to what is going on here, under her own roof. Apart of me believes she knows what Axel has gotten himself into but she turns a blind eye. I mean, how can she not know? I've heard her ramble on all the time about the police showing up to drop off Axel.

I should really sleep, I had to be at the cafe in two days and the last thing I need is to have an abnormal sleeping schedule. But between the scare of today, the boys not returning, and the memories of the man in my room I couldn't sleep.

Ever since I walked in on someone breaking into my room I've been terrified to fall asleep in here, I couldn't help but think, what if they break in while I'm asleep? I still don't understand how they got up here, I know they had a rope but my window was closed. How could anyone humanly open a window that's on the third floor? Not to mention the rope was tied to the windowsill, indicating the person was already in my room beforehand.

So the only logical explanation I could think of was they must had walked through the front door, right?

Either way, it was enough to ensure sleepless nights for me, not like I would want to sleep anyway. My nightmares have been taking their toll too, but really, they weren't nightmares. They were more of memories, flashbacks of the horrible people I've encountered, everything they've done to me. My own head was forcing me to relive my torture every night like once wasn't enough.

I tossed and turned in my bed, constantly pulling the blankets over me and then moments later kicking them right back off. I huffed and puffed and tried readjusting my pillows at least twenty times but I still couldn't get comfortable.

The sound of the single gunshot still echoed in my ears, did Axel shot Noah? Surely he wasn't that stupid to kill Noah, Axel was a lot of things but dumb wasn't one of them. I still couldn't help but wonder why Rylan would run into the woods after knowing what was happening, it was like it was second nature to him. As far as I knew, he wasn't apart of Black Spades, Rylan was the star of the freaking school's baseball team for the love of God! There was no way he could juggle both. Maybe Rylan just wanted to make sure Axel was okay, which I could understand but I don't know, it just seemed weird.

I jumped in shock when my bedroom door swung open unexpectedly, I saw the tall silhouette of someone clumsily feel around the wall for the light switch.

"Ah-ha!" They spoke childishly when they found it, flipping the switch.

A sigh of relief left my mouth when I saw it was Axel, he was safe. I watched as he stumbled towards me, taking his shirt off in t

prised she agreed to be a cover story.

"Why are you drunk Axel?" I whispered, knitting my eyebrows together.

"To celebrate of course!" He exclaimed, throwing his arms in the air lazily.

"Noah's going to go to prison." Axel said in a "duh" tone.

I knew there was more that he wasn't telling me but I knew better than to push him. Instead, I turned my head on the pillow to look at his face, his eyes never once left mine. A comfortable silence sat in between us as we stared at each other. I could feel my feet tingle from the zealous look in his eyes.

"God, stop looking at like that, " I whispered, breaking the staring contest we were having.

"Like what?" He asked, tilting his head slightly.

"Like that, " I noted to the intense look he was giving me. It was like he was staring into my soul.

"Is this better?" He asked, shutting his eyelids tightly.

"It's dark in here." He stated with eyes still closed.

A wide smile spread across my face watching him mutter words under his breath with his eyes closed. But yet, I couldn't help but feel sad though, I was sad that it took alcohol for Axel to talk to me like normal human being.

"Okay, I get it." I rolled my eyes.

"You can open your eyes, " I told him.

Axel's eyes automatically snapped open and looked over at me with an unknown emotion sweeping through them.

"This view is a lot better." He stated, yawning loudly.

I couldn't control the yawn that slipped out of my mouth after Axel's. I just realized how tired I really was in that moment, I was so afraid that something bad had happened to him and Rylan that is masked my exhaustion.

"Less talking and more cuddling, " Axel spoke tiredly, pulling me closer to his topless body.

My body froze as Axel wrapped his arms around my waist and made his face comfortable in the crook of my neck. I felt his breath hit my neck which sent shivers rippling down my figure that, might I add, seemed tiny against his.

I went to pull away from him because the smell of whiskey was almost too much for me to handle. But Axel's arm instantly tightened around my stomach and his face dived deeper into my neck, holding me in place.

"Stay." He practically pleaded.

"Please stay." He added softly.

A fuzzy feeling spread through my entire body and it felt like the circus had came to town in my stomach. I tried to relax in Axel's arms, not use the tender endearment. But after a while, the circus left and my nerves calmed down. I snuggled into Axel, making myself at home in his arms and I couldn't help but think how disappointing it's going to be to leave them in the morning.

"Goodnight Axel, " I whispered.

And after a while he replied.

"Goodnight Faye."
