- Chapter 36 | She Doesn't Need You Anymore


It’s been two weeks since my date with Anastasia and things have never been better.

Anastasia heard that one of her gang members shot Ryan and he is dead. Things got even better after that.

I love Ana so much, and I was planning on asking her to marry me when she turns 18. I know we will still be together then because nothing will break us apart.

I was with Ana an hour ago, but she had to go do something that she planned with her friends.

I headed downstairs and I was about to leave when someone rang my doorbell. I wasn’t expecting anyone so I wonder who’s there.

I opened the door and was really surprised that I saw Anastasia’s dad standing there.

“Hello Ryder” he said.

“Hey Mr. Martinez” I said slightly confused as to why he’s here.

“May I come in?” He asked.

“Sure, do you need anything?” I asked as I opened the door and let him walk inside.

“No, thank you. I would just like to have a talk with you.” He said sitting down.

“Okay, sure.” I said as I sat across from him.

“You can stay away from Anastasia now, she doesn’t need you anymore.”

“What do you mean she doesn’t need me?” I asked confused.

“I mean I had her get you to fall for her to get information and she did, the plan is over and she doesn’t need you anymore.” He said smiling.

“I don’t believe you. She loves me.” I said because I know she does.

“No she doesn’t, it was all apart of the plan” he said.

“I still don’t believe you, she wouldn’t do something like this!” I yelled.

“I have proof.” He said and my heart almost broke.

“Show me.” I said and he pulled out a recorder.

“I have our conversation recorded, because if she didn’t tell you I would and for you to believe me you’d want proof.” He said and pressed play.

“Hey dad.” I heard Anastasia’s voice say.

“Hey pumpkin.”

“How are you doing?” She asked him.

“I’m good, how’s the plan going?”

“Its been going great.” She answered.

“You don’t love him right, that wasn’t a part of the plan.”

“No, I don’t love him.” She said and my heart broke hearing her voice say.

“Good, so he trusts you?”

“Of course he trusts me, more than anything.” She said.

“Has he figured out that you are using him for me yet?”

“No, he doesn’t know.” She said.

“Good, is the job almost done? Are you coming home soon?”

“Yea dad, and I am coming soon.” She said and I knew he was telling the truth.

“Okay, bye pumpkin.”

“Bye dad.” I heard her say before the recording ended.

“Do you believe me now?” He asked standing up.

“Yes” I said and he opened my door.

“Good, so you don’t need to see her anymore.” He said and left.

I screamed, when he closed the door I screamed and cried as I felt my heart break.

I swore to never let myself fall for a girl because I didn’t want to get my heart broken, but I did anyway.

I can’t believe Anastasia would do something like this. I can’t believe that I fell for her lies.

I shouldn’t care about her after what she’s done, but I do. I do still love her even if it was all fake because it wasn’t for me.

I got up and decided to let go of some anger by fighting at the Underground like I always do.

So, I grabbed my bags and keys to my bike before I headed out to the bar.

Right when I got there and walked inside, it smelt like alcohol. I walked up to the bar and signed in before I started wrapping my hands.

“NEXT UP WE HAVE BLAZE AGAINST FLAME” the ring announcer said and I started walking to the ring.

When I got to the center of the ring I looked to my opponent to take him in.

He looked to be around thirty years old with tattoos and very buff.



Right when the bell rang I threw a punch to his jaw and heard a satisfying crack.

This seemed to make him really mad as he wiped his jaw and tried to punch me in the face, but I dodged.

He threw more punches, but I easily dodged them all and punched him until he was knocked out.

I had a few more fights and nobody even hit me once. It was getting late and I decided that I’d go have fun tonight, so I drove home.

When I got home, I went upstairs and took a shower before putting on my usual clothes.

Then I walked downstairs and got back onto my bike as I headed to The Vault. I parked my car and walked right in, not even waiting in line.

I walked straight to the bar for a drink and sat down. “What can I get you” the bartender asked.

“Something strong” I said as I took out my wallet.

“Girl problems?” He asked giving me my drink.

I downed it. “Yup, can you keep them coming.”

“What happened?” He asked filling my drink up again.

“The girl I loved used me to get information for her dad” I said and downed another drink.

“That’s hard man, but did you talk to her about it?”

“No, her dad had proof though.” I said.

“Sorry man” he said as he filled my drink up again and went to help another customer.

“Hey” I heard someone say next to me and I turned to see a hot girl looking at me.

“Hey there” I smirked.

“Wanna dance” she asked.

“Sure babe” I said and led her to the dance floor.

We were dancing and grinding on each other when she turned around and I kissed her. I led her to a booth and we were making out until someone stopped me.

“R-Ryder” I heard someone say and I looked over and saw Ana standing there looking amazing, but then I remembered what she did.

“Ana” I said.

“H-how could you?” She asked like she didn’t know.

“I don’t love you.” I said.

“B-but you s-said you did” she said looking sad but I knew it was an act.

“Nope, we’re done too” I said and watched as her eyes got watery and she turned around.

For a moment I actually thought she was sad, but just remembering her saying No, I don’t love him reminds me she isn’t.

I watched as the woman I loved walked away and turned back to the girl I was kissing.

“Where were we?” I said and kissed her again thinking of Anastasia.
