The door closed and Axel got up from the bed, running his hands through his hair. Sky pushed herself into her elbows and gulped at the dark look he had spread across his face that she didn’t dare say anything.
Axel turned to face her and she flinched slightly making him sigh, “Why did you flinch?”
“I don’t know,” She said quietly.
“Why didn’t you tell me the truth when I asked?”
“Because I happen to like my life,” Sky muttered and sat up properly, “He said he would do worse and then kill me,”
“If you had just told me the truth from the start, I would have killed him,”
“You’d kill your friend?” Sky asked, “Why would-”
“Because I told you I’d kill anyone for you,” He said leaning over her, “It started with Bishop and it won’t end at Bishop,”
Sky frowned, “But I’m just-”
“I fucking know that!” Axel snapped, getting to his feet, “You think I’m not aware that you are...were a hooker. For fuck sake Sky, you’ve made me confused and I fucking hate it. No one has made me feel like this and it’s making me lose my god damn mind,”
Sky's heart skipped and she ignored the feeling and scratched her palms. If only he knew who the real Sky was.
“Fuck,” He muttered, “Are you going to tell me what you and Zeke were talking about?”
“Why the fuck not?” Axel said, grabbing hold of her face, squeezing gently, “I own you,”
“No one owns me,” She said, matching his glare, “If I tell you what we spoke about, then Riley will get away with trying to kill Zeke,”
Axel frowned, “Why would he want to kill him? We’ve known each other years,”
“Yet you’d still kill him...for me,”
“Point taken,” Axel sighed, “I will find out what you spoke about,”
“Maybe but I won’t be telling you and neither will Zeke,”
“So, now you are buddy’s with him?”
Sky rolled her eyes and pushed his hand away from her face, “If you have nothing else to discuss with me, I should get back to work,”
“Was Erin lying?”
“Are you that fucking stupid?” Sky said and quickly pressed her lips together as his face darkened, “Sorry, I just-”
Axel grabbed hold of her wrist and yanked her into his body. He smirked as he ran his thumb over her bottom lip and she saw him swallow.
“Guess I could do with relaxing before breakfast,” He said just above a whisper, “And I’ve been dying to have those pretty lips wrapped around my dick again,”
Sky felt her face burn and she couldn’t help but look away from him. Axel chuckled and kissed the base of her neck making her shiver.
“On. Your. Knees,” He growled into her ear, “Don’t fight me on this beautiful,”
Axel watched Riley joke around with his friends and he had to clench his fists to stop him from going over to him and shooting him in the face.
“Axel,” Sky said and he averted his gaze to her.
“I need to go back to the flat,” She said, “I also want to have some free time and see Darcy,”
“Why not!” Sky said and the others turned to face them, “That’s unfair. I’ve been stuck in this place for a week and I still don’t-”
“If you carry on arguing with me, I will fuck you in front of my friends and it wouldn't have been the first time I've done that to a girl,” Axel said and Sky pressed her lips together.
“Axel,” Jake said, “Sky has a point. She needs clothes and she needs to see her friend,”
“I didn’t ask for your input,”
“Prick,” Sky said under her breath and Axel smirked.
“I heard that,” He said.
"You were meant to," Sky smiled sweetly at him and he yanked her onto his lap, making her straddle him, "Ow!"
Axel smacked her thigh and ran his hand up to her throat, "You know what happens to that mouth of yours when you say shit like that,”
“You fuck it until I struggle to breathe,” Sky whispered so only Axel could hear.
“Yeah, and if you carry on fighting with me, I’ll-”
“I’m not going to stop fighting you,” Sky said, and the doorbell went.
“Get the door,” Axel said smacking her on her ass hard enough to make her yelp, “Don’t stare at me like that. Answer the fucking door,”
Sky scowled at him as she walked out the room rubbing her ass.
“Slave?” Blake said, “Axel, you’re acting like she’s your fucking girlfriend,”
“She isn’t!” Axel said, “Whatever. Have you found who that cop is?”
“Ok. We are changing the subject,” Blake tutted, “No. The cops you pay don’t know who it is either. I have my girls listening in. A few fuck cops so I’m sure we will get something soon,”
The door opened and Sky came in but he was quickly on his feet with a gun pointed at the person behind her.
“I didn’t think you had the balls,” Axel smirked.
“Showing up at our house means you don’t mind dying,” Jake said.
The man laughed, “I didn’t think you kept your hookers at your place,”
“I wouldn’t touch her if I were you,” Blake said.
“So she is one of your girls still?”
“No,” Axel said, “She is mine,”
“The big Mr Axel Dalton has a girl? How interesting,” He grinned and Sky gasped as he pressed the gun harder against the side of her head. Then proceeded to grope her breasts making Sky grit her teeth.
“Hands. Off,” Axel said through gritted teeth.
“If you want to talk, then talk,” Zeke said, “But do you know how annoying it is to get the blood off this carpet?”
“I want those documents back,”
“Funny. So do we,” Riley said, “Drop the girl. We had a deal,”
“No, you had a gun pointed at my nuts,” The man snapped, “If you don’t give me back what is mine, I will shoot-ugh!”
Axel stood in awe as Sky threw her head back, cracking it against the man's nose. She grabbed his wrist and he screamed as she bent it the wrong way making him drop the gun. Sky tucked her arm under his armpit and threw him over her shoulder making him grunt in pain. Before the man could do anything she dropped her knee into his chest and pressed his own gun into his mouth.
“Holy shit,” Blake said quietly.
“If you ever put your hands on me again,” Sky said taking the safety from the gun, “I will paint the walls with your fucking brain,”
“That...that was fucking hot,” Blake said looking over at Axel with a smirk, “You wanna share?”
“What?” Axel said, “Wait, no I don’t want to fucking share! Zeke. Get the fucker down to the basement. Sky...my bedroom. Now,”
