“What the fuck are you doing here?” Sky hissed out.
“My friends invited me out,” Jason said, “Why are you here?”
“Fuck,” Sky said, quietly, “You need to go. Please, just go to another club!”
Jason frowned, “Why? And why are you covered in hickeys again?”
“That doesn’t matter,” Sky said, feeling her cheeks burn, “I have a job to do and it is going to be so fucking awkward with you here,”
“You aren’t getting new clients are you?” Jason asked and Sky gave him a look, “Sorry. You aren’t a hooker. My bad. Why are you here?”
“Keep your voice down,” Sky whispered, “The gang that Riley was spying for is in this club. I haven’t been told what is going to happen but I’m not an idiot. I have to get their attention so Axel can deal with them,”
“You are meant to stop them from killing people, Sky,”
“I don’t care if gangs kill each other off,” Sky said, “One less job for us but I need you to keep away from me. I don’t want you hurt and I especially don’t want to see someone put a bullet in you,”
Jason sighed and ran his hands through his hair, “And I made the effort to look good. I was looking forward to this night because I was fed up of the normal clubs,”
Sky stepped back and looked him up and down, “Very nice,”
“Stop,” Jason grinned, “You’ll make me blush,”
“I didn’t realise your hair had grown so much,” She said, “It looks good and...stop distracting me with your good looks,”
“Sorry that I’m so good looking,” Jason said, flicking his hair still smiling, “Sky, you told me that Riley knew who you were. Do you think he told the gang?”
Sky blinked a few times, “I don’t think so. Well, I hope he didn’t anyway. But I still need to find out who attacked Darcy. I also need to get to the bottom of who killed Dexter. Riley said it wasn’t Axel and-”
“You believed him?”
“I don’t know what I believe, Jason,” Sky said, “I’m confused, ok?”
“Oh shit,” Jason said, “You like him, don’t you?”
“Axel,” Jason said and Sky averted her gaze, “I knew this was a bad idea. I knew we should have just gotten an arrest warrant and taken him down,”
“With what evidence?” Sky said, “He has police working for him. I wouldn’t be surprised if they helped get rid of the evidence of all the crimes that he has been responsible for,”
“And how are you going to bring him down?” Jason said, “How could you if you like him?”
Sky shrugged, “I’ll let you know when the time comes. I should get back before they come looking for me and please, find another club. I can’t get up on stage with you here,”
“What a waste of a good suit and aftershave,” Jason muttered.
Sky smirked at him, “You look hot, though. I’m sure others would agree so is it a waste?”
Jason blushed, “Shut up, Sky,”
“I’m just telling you the truth,”
“Y-yeah well, you look h-hot as well,” Jason stuttered.
“Your brother would go mental if he saw what you were wearing,” Jason said, his eyes zeroing in on her breasts, “Not much left to the imagination,”
Sky smacked his chest making him look at her face, “They are boobs, Jason and please keep your eyes on my face. It’s awkward enough as it is,”
Jason smiled, “Sorry but I’ve already had a few drinks and they look great,”
Sky rolled her eyes and opened the door, making sure the coast was clear before heading back to her table. Halfway there, someone with a firm grip grabbed her wrist and tugged her into their body. She went to say something but recognised the man.
“I’ve not seen you before,” He said, with a smirk, “This has to be my lucky night,”
Sky held back what she wanted to say, so smiled at him, “Well, isn’t that a charming thing to say,”
The man chuckled, “If you aren’t doing anything, why don’t you sit with me and my boys? It’s always good to get to know the new faces around here,”
Sky walked her fingers up his chest, “Cute, but I’m here with some men already. But thank you for the offer. If I get bored I’ll be sure to come looking for you,”
He grinned widely at her and sent her a wink, “You can come looking for me anytime you want, baby. I’ll be sure to keep a lookout for you,”
“Then let’s hope I get bored with the people I’m with,” Sky said, quietly, “It was nice to meet you...sorry, I didn’t catch your name,”
“You certainly have a way with words,” The man said running his thumb softly over her bottom lip, “I’m Nico De Luca,”
“Nice to meet you, Nico De Luca,” Sky said, “I’ll leave you to carry on with what you were doing,”
“And your name is?”
Sky smirked, “You can just call me baby,”
Nico grinned widely and winked at her, “See you around, baby. I hope to see more of you,”
Sky blew him a small kiss and swayed her hips back to the table, trying not to make it look like she was nervous. Axel looked up at her with a glare before it dropped noticing the uneasiness in her.
Sky let out a shaky breath, “I have his name. The one at the bar,”
“Shit. You met him?” Jake said, “Did he hurt you or-”
“No. Nothing like that,” Sky said, grabbing her drink, “Bit touchier than I would have wanted but he didn’t hurt me,”
“I’ll kill him,” Axel said under his breath not realising that Sky had heard him but she ignored it and took a gulp of her drink.
“What is his name?” Zeke asked.
“Nico De Luca,” Sky said and ran her hand through her hair. She looked up and frowned at the guys staring at her, “What?”
“I didn’t recognise him,” Blake said quietly, “Fuck. This can’t be good,”
“Is he that bad?” Sky asked.
“He was a friend of ours,” Jake said, “But something happened and he wasn’t our friend. That is all we are telling you right now,”
“To think that Riley would turn his god damn back on us for someone like him,” Axel said through gritted teeth, “That prick better hope I don’t see him in hell,”
“Is it a good idea to go ahead with this plan?” Zeke asked, “We can’t have-”
“We don’t have any other choice,” Axel said, “If Riley was working with Nico behind our back, then we need to do what we can to bring him down. I won’t have a repeat of what happened,”
“Baby girl,” Jake said, “You better head backstage to get ready. The girls know you are coming and will help you get dressed. Just remember to have fun and if you catch eyes with Nico, keep his attention,”
