"I'm not upset that you lied to me, I'm upset that from now on I can't believe you."

- Friedrich Nietzsche


So, it was safe to say, Axel was not very happy about the little stunt I pulled a couple days ago. I could tell because he's been sulking around the house like a five year old, stomping and whining at virtually everything. Rylan begged me multiple times to reverse whatever I did to the "notorious bad boy" and tried convincing me again that Faye was nothing more than just figment of Axel's imagination.

I could also tell Axel was not too pleased with me when he came marching into my room Monday morning with a large glass of ice water.

"Ever heard of kno- why are carrying around a glass of water?" I stopped mid-sentence.

Axel looked down at the glass before quickly hiding it behind his back with a 'caught-in-action' look on his face.

"Shut up." He grunted, squinting his eyes at me.

"Were you going to dump that on me?" I asked him, slightly offended.

"It's not like you don't deserve it." He stated, now taking a drink of the water.

"I did nothing to you, " I stated, brushing tangles out my hair.

"You've done everything to me!" He scoffed, sitting the glass on the dresser before coming closer towards me.

"Do you feel this?" He asked, grabbing my hand in his larger one and placed it above his heart. I felt his palpitations pulse against my hand.

"This happens every time I look at you." He whispered.

"You did this to me and I don't know how to make it stop." He squeezed my hand slightly.

I stared at his chest, more specifically, my hand that was on it. I didn't dare look up to meet Axel's intense gaze. I was too transfixed by the words that came out of his mouth. I wanted to grab his hand and put it over my own heart, I wanted him to feel it trying to escape my chest. I wanted to tell him about the pit in my stomach every time our eyes met or even the tingles that were dancing in my hand at this very moment, but I didn't.

"Say something." Axel's voice snapped me out of my trance.

"I just want to know the truth." I finally looked up at him.

"Mia, you've got understand that I can't tell you." He looked at me with sorry eyes.

But that was the thing, I didn't understand why he couldn't, Noah was behind bars. Nothing was stopping him other than the fact he didn't trust me. I didn't understand why he nor Rylan couldn't just about this mysterious girl.

"Then you've got to understand why I'm asking you to leave." I pulled my hand away from his and looked down at the wood flooring.

Axel didn't move for several moments and when he noticed I wasn't going to say anything more he left the room with his head hanging low. I heard the slamming of his door followed by a loud crash as he threw, what I believe to be a lamp, against the wall.

I flinched slightly from the sound and instantly felt bad for upsetting him, I debated on knocking on his door and apologizing to him but again, I didn't. I focused on finishing getting ready for school instead.

Yesterday I had my first shift at Betty's and for the most part, it was boring

s going to explode if I had to ask that question one more time.

"She's my little sister, " Clayton said, the smile was replaced with a hard frown and his eyes held so much anger.

"Your sister?" I repeated confused.

"Yes, my sister." He looked at me as if I was dumb and in this moment I certainly felt like it.

"I don't understand." I shook my head.

"A sister, you know when your parents fuck and bring another baby into the world." He explained.

"I know what a sister is you imbecile! I don't understand what that has to do with Axel or Rylan!" I shouted.

"I'll tell you what it has to do with them." He hissed.

"My dearest sister couldn't pick between the two idiots, so she fell in love with the both of them." He stood up straight against the wall.

"She wanted them both and it almost got her killed." Clayton's chest was jumping up and down.

"And if you're not careful and don't connect to the dots that are right here in front of you Mia, it's going to get you killed." He threatened.

"You don't think it's strange why Noah came after you? Just out of the blue?" He asked me.

"Noah's sick minded and in jail, " I told him.

"Mia this is bigger than yourself, they're going to be more gangs coming after you. They are going to use you as a bargaining chip." Clayton's eyes held so much honestly that it scared me.

"Why?" I choked out.

"I can't tell you, you're going have to figure it out." He shook his head at me.

"Who then?" I asked, exasperated.

Clayton just shook his head and looked down to his feet. I'm so sick of people telling they can't tell me! What was so important that I couldn't be told!

"What happened to Faye?" I huffed.

"When it came down to it, Rylan couldn't protect her like he promised." Clayton's hands balled into fists.

"Why was Rylan protecting her?" I knitted my eyebrows together.

It didn't make any sense, Axel should had been the one to keep her safe.

"You didn't know?" He chuckled in disbelief.

"Know what?" By this point, my head was spinning out of control.

"Rylan used to be the leader of Black Spades."
