Axel looked up from his phone when Jake walked into the room and dropped onto the sofa.
“She’s fine,” Jake shrugged, “Obviously not happy that she is here but I don’t blame her. Don’t you think it’s a bit risky to have her living with us?”
“No, because if anyone tries something they have me to answer to,”
“Maybe, but someone already did and you’ve done nothing about it,”
“I’m biding my time,” Axel said, “The others should be here soon and I will lay down some rules,”
“Axel, it seems you have forgotten something very important,” Jake said leaning forward, “Blake set some rules to protect the girls from Zeke and he broke them. In fact, he didn’t just break them, he poured petrol over them and set them alight. You know that he will try again knowing that she is living under our roof,”
Axel smirked, “You think I won’t hurt him?”
“It’s not that,” Jake sighed, “Sky is very fragile at the moment. What happens if we aren’t in and Zeke breaks down the door and hurts her again? What will you do? Move her into another room for it to happen again?”
“I will make him pay for hurting someone that belongs to me,” Axel said and he frowned looking over at his friend, “I wonder why she mentioned the police,”
Jake shrugged, “She might have thought about going to them about it,”
“They wouldn’t have done anything anyway. The police don’t care about hookers,” Axel said and he heard his friends walk into the house, “And most of them are on my payroll,”
“Not all of them,” Jake said, “A lot of the police don’t like us and will do anything to bring us down,”
“They can fucking try,” Axel muttered, “Nothing is to be said about Sky's attack. I want to see Zeke's face when I tell everyone she is here,”
Blake stepped into the room blowing out cigarette smoke and he nodded at Axel before sitting down. The others shortly followed him and Axel watched as Zeke dropped onto the armchair yawning loudly.
“We have a house guest,” Axel said and the boys looked at him.
“Please don’t tell me it’s your dad,” Riley said, “Or even worse, your mum,”
Axel tutted, “It isn’t them,”
“Is it a welcomed house guest, or are we talking about one that is locked in the basement?”
“Welcomed,” Axel said.
“Who is it?” Zeke asked, yawning, “Jesus. I’m tired,”
“Then have a coffee because we have a meeting soon,” Jake said.
Zeke groaned, “Do I have to go?”
“Who is the guest?” Blake said, putting his feet on the table, looking over at Zeke.
“Why is she here?” Zeke asked frowning and he suddenly grinned, “Unless you’ve decided to share her and then-”
“She isn’t to be touched,” Axel said getting to his feet, “Everyone is to stay away from her. No one is to go near her room or her. If I find out that you broke the rules, I will kill you,”
“There are so many rules just begging to be broken,” Zeke grinned, “But I’ve not broken any yet so fuck it. I’ll leave her alone until you give her to me,”
Axel smirked, “You must think I’m a fucking idiot,”
“I have a question,” Riley said, “Why is she here?”
“None of your business,” Blake said, “Don’t question Axel,”
“Shit,” Riley grinned, “Is she your personal sex slave now? Did she finally crack and beg for you to take her?”
“I’d stop talking if I were you,” Jake said, “Sky is here because she is here. No questions about it. Just respect Axel and the rules,”
“Boring,” Riley said, “Wait, is she here as a maid? Is she going to dress in a maid outfit and clean for us? Because I will fucking give my left nut to see that happen,”
Blake scoffed, “You think Axel would-”
“Not a bad idea,” Axel said, “I’d like to see her in a maid outfit,”
“Are you shitting me?” Jake said, “After what you said?”
“I didn’t say she had to show them,” Axel tutted, “Blake, get her sorted out when we get back and I will let Jake talk her into it,”
“Why me?” Jake asked, “Blake is her boss,”
“She likes you,” Blake said getting to his feet, “Let’s go before I go to bed. This meeting is pointless anyway. They have paid their debts,”
“But are still selling drugs on our streets,” Riley said, “Fuck it. Let’s go kill some people and hit the clubs. I need to get drunk and find a nice girl to fuck. It’s been a few days since the last girl and I need more,”
“I agree,” Zeke said, “The last girl I had didn’t put up much of a fight but I am willing to try her again. I need her to fight back,”
Axel clenched his fists and before he could punch Zeke, Jake grabbed his wrists. Axel yanked his arms away from Jake and walked towards Zeke who was laughing with Riley. He grabbed his collar and slammed him against the wall.
“What the fuck?” Zeke hissed out, “Why are you getting angry?”
“Didn’t put up a fight?” Axel said, almost growling, “If you fucking touch her again I will skin you alive, are we fucking clear?”
“Are we fucking clear?” Axel shouted and Zeke nodded, “You make me fucking sick, Zeke,”
Axel pushed himself away from Zeke and left the room, needing to punch something. Jake and Blake were quick to follow and caught him before he got into the car.
“What the hell was that about?” Jake said, “You said you weren’t going to react,”
“He was fucking boasting about it and it pissed me off!” Axel said pushing Jake, “How would you feel if you heard him gloating about fucking your girl without her permission?”
“Your girl?” Blake smirked, “Is that how it is?”
“Shut up,” Axel said running his hands through his hair, “He’s lucky I didn’t shoot him in the fucking face,”
“Hey!” Zeke said running out of the house, “Why do you care if I fuck a girl anyway? She was practically begging for it. She was asking for it!”
“This can’t end well,” Jake said under his breath as Axel pulled his gun out.
