Dylan Parker

I had to make enough cash to get Alison out of the hole she's in. She might not admit it to me, but I know she wants to,

"Are you okay?"Jin asked.

I nodded slightly,

"You know, you can talk to me boy"

"Since when do you care?" I retorted.

Jin is some fucked up uncle of mine, who hasn't given a shit about me since I was a kid, he shows now and then acting like he's been there all along,

He sighed and focused on the road, for some reason he's my only ride today, I just ass to tolerate his ass for a while.

The car came to a full stop, and jumped out of the car, "Do you need me to pick you up?"

I don't answer, pissed with his good uncle act, we both know he's just back to snatch my savings.

I hurried into the school and went to look for Alison. I had to sort out the huge mess I made with her, I made it awkward and I hate that she's avoiding me because of it,

Sighing. I approached for my locker and opened it,

"Hello," someone muttered behind me, I shut my locker and turned to the voice.

It's the school jackass, Jack and his boys.

"What do you want?"

"Chill man! don't get all Hulk on me, I just want to talk." He extended his hand to me,

I ignored it,

"What do you want?"

He took his hands back, rubbing the brim on of his nose mockingly,

"We are here to ask, beg to join the team." Another said,

Jack nodded, "Look, we don't usually do this, but we've seen you play, you're really good at football, we want you on the team. You are exactly what we've been looking for."

"Try someone else,"I tried to walk past him.

"Think about it, Dylan. You one of the good guys, you should be on the popular team, and not an outcast."

"Still not interested," I said and walked away.

I walked into the class and looked out for Alison,

"Hey." Someone else called my attention and I looked up to see Emma, Alison's new friend,

"Have you seen Alison? I have been trying to reach out to her on the phone," She asked,

"No, I haven't seen her either." I answered.

She nodded,

"I'm Emma by the way," she said, I raised an eyebrow, wondering why she's telling me that,


"I know." She smiled creepily, "I have seen you around."

"Okay..." I left to take a seat, I didn't want her to think we are friends because she was friends with Alison.

Class soon started and everyone went quiet, "Can someone enlighten me on our last topic?" The teacher asked.

I got out my notebook and began sketching random stuff. It was the only way I could get through this class without strangling myself,

"Sorry." I familiar voice I knew quite well walked into the class.

"Miss stone, you're late?" The teacher, Mr. Wilson said.

"I'm sorry, I was stuck in traffic." she said, "it won't happen again."

I chuckled slightly, at her inability to come up with a better lie,

"Take a seat miss Stone and please see me after class."

She nodded and sat at the front row beside Emma.

"Anyone?" he continued,

I just sighed and continued sketching.

After the math class, I got up and approached Alison. She was talking to Emma, and didn't even notice I was standing right behind her,

Damn, she smelled really nice.

Emma pointed at me, having Alison notice me,

"Hey."I whispered.

"Hey," She replied shyly.

"See you in lunch Ali," Emma excused herself.

"How are you?" I knew what she was referring to, "Sorry, I haven't called back, it's just--"

"You ran away.."

"I-I didn't know what to say, but I'm sorry, that was childish."

"No, I should be the one apologizing, I shouldn't be taking you off guard like that, So I'm sorry." I really hate the awkward space between us.

I missed her so much, it was nearly driving me insane, I rather be stuck in the friend zone forever than this,

"I'm sorry too," She said with a smile.

"I understand." I said sharply.

There was an awkward silence between us for a moment, she seemed to be lost in her own thoughts,

"So, we cool?" I asked diverting her attention back to me.

She just nodded cutely, "Good, cause I don't think I can go another day without talking to you."

"Me too," She reached and pulled into a side hug. I was happy we cleared things up, "See you in class, Dylan." She broke away from me and walk towards Mr. Wilson's desk.

I left for class, but I couldn't help but feel something wasn't right with her, I would ask her about it later, at the moment, I was just glad to have my little pops back.



"What's your name?" I asked the mysterious man,

It was strange how we had been fucking each other all those nights and I still didn't know his name.

"Just be quiet," he shot back.

"What can I call you?" I insisted, I'm used to having him around, his angry growls didn't scare me anymore.

He stepped closer to where I was and placed his left-hand underneath my chin, studying me curiously, and for some insane reason I wasn't terrified.

I just stared back, waiting for his next move.

'What did David Hertz see in you? Is it the lipstick?"

My heart raced.


"Perhaps it's the hair, but he digs blondes, so that can't be it either, Isn't that right, Natalia?"

I gasped, "How do you know my name?"

He walked towards the table and poured himself a drink,

"Did David send you here?" David won't do that to me.

"Oh, don't get all touchy on me now darling, we were having so much fun." he said mockingly,

"What do you want?"

He took a gulp before reaching to me, "I need you to get something back for me."

"And what would that be?"

"I want Alison."

What, he must delusional, "Who the hell his Alison?"

"She's David's ward, he's been looking after her." I remembered the girl I met in David's office.

"And, what about her?" I asked, not exactly sure why we were having the conversation.

"I must have her."

"Then go get her and save all of us the misery I don't care." I snapped irritated.

"That's where you come in?" He smirked devilishly, at this point I knew I was already stuck in whatever he was on about, "You and I need to work together."

"And what makes you think, I want part of this."

"It's a win-win situation here." he drank his liquor, before speaking again,

"This way we can both get what we want. I get Alison, her father's properties, and you get David, simple.."

"I have David, I don't need to get him." I shot back.

He laughed out mockingly,

"God, you're really as dumb as you look."

"Fuck you." I spat,

He laughed even more saying,

"Alison and David are a thing now, they've been seeing each other for a while."

My heart fell,

"They try to hide, but anyone with eyes can see it.."

"That's not possible," I mumbled in panic,

"It's the truth, I have seen them myself."

"You're lying, " I snapped, Dave won't do that to me, David loves me. "Stop lying, you're just trying to get in my head so I can do what you want."

I paced frantically around the room,

He won't do that to me, he won't just replace lme, he loves me, I know he does, I just have to do better for him and things would go back to the way they were.

That's what he said,

He went and poured me a drink,

"here," he said.

I snatched and drank it in one gulp, it all suddenly made sense, why he didn't want me anymore, why he ended everything we shared, it was all because of her, that little slut.

"Have been so stupid," I yelled out.

"Okay, that we can agree on," he exclaimed,

finding my reaction amusing,

"So I'm taking you in?"

I won't let some little bitch take my biggest support away from me, even if I have to kill her myself, "I'm in,"
