"And if you are ever going to have other people trust you, you must feel that you can trust them, too - even when you're in the dark. Even when you're falling."

- Mitch Albom

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

The rest of the day was slow and painful, I had to sit through class after class with rage heating up inside me. Every little thing was annoying my entire being, I felt like at any given moment I was going to snap. Especially in Mr. Hipps class, if one more person said one more comment regarding the French Revolution I'd probably beat my head against the desk until I went unconscious.

It didn't help that Rylan was in the class either, I wanted nothing more than to march over to him and confront him but I wasn't one for causing scenes, primarily because Mr. Hipp cared way too passionately for history so I'd be sent to the office before I even reached Rylan.

I was just so angry. I was angry that he lied to me, he even tried to convince me it was just some random name Axel had said drunkenly. The thought made me even angrier and then there's the fact that no one would tell me what was exactly going on here, which probably frustrated me the most.

My life was turning into some type of Scooby Doo episode, I was going around searching for clues and answers like I was Sherlock Holmes, well guess what?

I'm not Sherlock fucking Holmes!

I'm tired of pressing and begging people for answers that they're not going to tell me anyway. I don't understand why various gangs would want me. It's not like I meant that much to Rylan, or Axel for that matter, if I did they would tell me what was going on.

When the bell rang I stayed glued to my seat and glared at Rylan. I was almost certain my tongue was bleeding from biting down so hard on it, trying to stop myself from coming unglued.

Rylan gave me a confused look, probably wondering why I wasn't moving.

"You coming Buttercup?" He asked, nodding his head towards the door.

I wanted to say 'screw you' but it came out as 'yeah' instead. I grabbed my bag, that I now felt like setting on fire because Rylan gave it to me, and followed him outside to his car.

Looking at the car that he drove just confirmed the whole "Rylan being the Ex-leader of Black Spades" thing like Clayton had said. How else would you explain how a seventeen year old would be sporting a car like this without a job?

The drive back to Rose's house was long and the atmosphere was uneasy and heavy. I had so many things I wanted to say, it was almost overwhelming. I spent all day waiting for this moment, rehearsing what I was going to say to the both of them, but somehow the words got lost in travel from my brain to my tongue.

"You lied." I cut through the tension, looking out the window.

"What are you talking about?

ne through the wall.

My mouth gaped at the damage he had caused.

"This has nothing to do with how I feel about you, " Axel shouted.

"And I'M playing with YOUR emotions?" He gave me a look of astonishment.

"You're the one dangling me by a string." Axel narrowed his eyes at me.

"Bullshit!" I cursed.

"I've been nothing but fair to you! I even forgave you after you said all those horrible things towards me." I shouted.

"Everything I've said was because I had to! Do you understand that? Mia, I had too!" Axel growled.

"I shouldn't even be here right now! I'm supposed to stay away from you, but I can't! Can you get that through your head? I can't stay away from you Mia." His tone changed considerably.

"Why are you suppose to stay away? Stop leaving me with more questions than answers!" I shouted back at him.

"Mia, you're going to have to trust me, I'm trying to protect you." He said, walking closer again.

"That's the thing, Axel, I don't trust you. You haven't given me a reason to trust you." I threw my hands up.

"Remember I told you about my father?" He asked, throwing me off.

"Of course I remember, " I told him, not understanding what that had to with anything.

"You are the only person I've told that story too." He spoke looking at with intense eyes.

"You've got to believe I would tell you about this if I could Angel, " Axel whispered.

"But there are people watching us, Mia. They are always watching, waiting for someone to make mistake." He told me.

"I promise everything I've done is with reason and I promise- Mia, look at me, " Axel demanded.

I obeyed and looked at his dark eyes and tried to understand what he was saying the best I could.

"I promise when it's safe, I'll tell you everything." He spoke softly.

"Is my life really endanger?" I asked, Clayton's words echoing in my head.

"Yes."
