Sky had woken up early to the sound of her phone going off. She groaned and answered the phone with a mumble.
Sky sighed and sat up, “I don’t want to talk over the phone,”
“I’m hanging up,” She said hanging up on her boss and she ran her hands through her hair. She blinked away the sleep in her eyes and swung her legs out of bed, stretching her arms above her head.
With a yawn, she opened the bedroom door and padded out to the kitchen for breakfast. There wasn’t much to eat because she hadn’t been shopping for anything so she threw some bread into the toaster and turned to see Axel sitting on the sofa.
She screamed loudly and stumbled back, tripping over her own feet.
“What the fuck!” She screamed, “Why the hell are you in my flat?”
Axel slowly got to his feet and walked over to her, watching her get to her feet.
“You have no sense of danger,” He said pressing her against the counter, “Although, I have to admit I enjoyed seeing you parade around in just your small panties and top,”
Sky blushed and tried to make her top longer.
“Why are you blushing, beautiful?” Axel smirked, “Have you forgotten I’ve already seen you naked?”
“Why are you here?”
“I have a job for you,”
Sky tensed, “I’m picky with the men I sleep with,”
“Maybe, but this isn’t about fucking men for money and you are the only one to do it,”
“What makes you think I will do it?” Sky said quietly as Axel kissed the base of her neck, “I don’t even know what you do for a living. Other than-”
“I like how you fight me,” He growled into her ear and he yanked her head back with her hair, “You don’t have much of a choice. You either do the job, or I kill you,”
Sky's heart jumped into her throat, “K-kill me?”
“Yeah,” He said, nipping at her neck, “You work the street tonight. Do what you normally do and I’ll pick you up at 10. Understand?”
Sky nodded and Axel stepped away, biting into his lip looking her up and down.
“Make sure you dress to impress,”
“I always do,” Sky said leaning into him, “If that’s all you need, then you can leave now. I have things to do,”
Axel smirked and pressed a hard kiss to her lips catching her off guard, “If you don’t impress me, then you won’t be impressing the person I am after,”
Sky stood against the wall turning men down left right and centre. She tutted at the last attempt but another girl came along and helped her out.
“I don’t understand how you are allowed to be picky,” The girl said, “If the new pimp catches you turning people down, he will beat you up,”
“Let him try,” Sky said as a familiar car pulled up beside her, “Be careful with the next guy and make sure you put some ice on that bruise,”
The girl smiled and nodded. Sky got into the car and Jason drove off.
“You’ve been avoiding my calls,”
Sky sighed, “Things got complicated and I wasn’t well. I don’t have a lot of time so to talk so just listen,”
“Wait,” He said, pulling into an alley, “Ok. Go. What’s going on?”
“I have a problem,” She said, “Axel has his eye on me and he as told me that he has a job for me. I don’t know what it is but he said if I don’t do it, he’ll kill me,”
“Shit,” Jason said rubbing his face, “We’ll need to make sure that you have a wire so-”
“Jason, where the fuck am I supposed to put a wire?” Sky said gesturing at her outfit, “It’s not exactly appropriate!”
Jason took a look at what she was wearing and went bright red, “Damn, Sky,”
“My life sucks!” She exclaimed, “If the damn boss would just get a warrant, then I wouldn’t have to be a damn hooker,”
“Incoming,” Jason said, “Shit. It’s Axel,”
“Fuck. I have to go,” Sky said opening the car door.
“Be careful,” He said, as she slammed the car door.
Sky watched Jason drive off and she let out a sigh, turning to face Axel. Behind him were his friends and she felt uncomfortable with the way Zeke was staring at her.
“That will surely get his attention,” Axel said running the back of his fingers down the side of her face, “I hope you’re ready to use your charm,”
Sky smacked his hand away and glared at him, making him smile wide, “It depends. What am I supposed to be doing,”
“First, we get in my car,” He said, “Then we will talk,”
Sky followed them around the corner and climbed into the back, sitting against the door. The others climbed in and spread out with Axel sitting close to her.
Sky felt tense when he slid his arm around her shoulder and placed his free hand on her thigh, drawing circles with his thumb.
“The job is simple,” Axel said, “You distract a man we are after and make sure you take him into a room that is far away from others,”
“Why are you after him?” Sky asked.
“Why is that any of your business?” Blake asked.
Sky looked at him, “Because if I’m about to put my life in the line for a bunch of assholes, I need to prepare myself,”
“No,” Axel cut off Blake, “This one can ask questions,”
Sky shot a look at Blake before staring out the window, “Who is he? Trafficker? Drug runner? Someone who owes you money?”
Axel chuckled, “You’re smart for a hooker,”
“Not all hookers are just a quick fuck,” Sky muttered, "I do watch TV,"
“Jake, if you may,”
Jake nodded, “We have someone selling guns on our turf without permission. Word going around is that he likes the girls a little too much. Axel said that the reason why men keep coming back for you, is that you act like a virgin,”
Sky felt her cheeks blush and she cleared her throat, crossing her arms, “And what of it?”
Jake smirked, “I don’t think you understand what I said. He likes girls too much and he likes the virgin ones at that,”
“He’s a kiddy fiddler?” Sky said clenching her fists.
“We don’t know but it’s what is being said,” Riley said, “Since you don’t look your age, it will probably work in your favour. Seduce him, take him to a room and we will do all the rest,”
Sky swallowed the lump in his throat, “Why do you care that he likes girls too much?”
“Children are innocent,” Axel shrugged, “But we want him to stop selling the guns before anything else,”
“So you don’t care that he targets kids?” Sky said glaring at him, “You only care that he’s selling guns?”
Axel suddenly grabbed hold of her hair and yanked her head back, before lowering his mouth to her ear, “If I were you beautiful, I’d start concentrating on how to get his attention rather than the person he is. If you ask another question, I’ll let Zeke play with you and let me warn you, he is much rougher than the other men you play with. Do you fucking understand me?”
Sky squeezed her eyes shut in pain as Axel pulled on her hair even more, “I-I understand,”
Axel kissed her lips and grinned, “Good girl. Now, keep your mouth shut before I decide to mouth fuck you all the way there with my boys watching,”
Sky rubbed the back of her head and stared out the window with her heart in her throat.
This case was starting to spiral out of control.
