A hand shook Axel awake and he groaned, pulling the duvet over his head.

โ€œ5 more minutes baby,โ€ He grumbled.

A giggle made him sit up straight and he stared at Erin, โ€œIโ€™m not used to being called that Master,โ€

โ€œDonโ€™t,โ€ He muttered, โ€œI thought you were Sky,โ€

Axel's heart dropped into his stomach and he climbed out of bed with Erin watching his every move biting into her bottom lip. He ran his hands through his hair in frustration and walked over to his wardrobe to get dressed. He froze when a pair of hands slid around his body and settled on his stomach.

โ€œYou seem tense,โ€ Erin said, โ€œShall I help you relax?โ€

โ€œTake your hands away from me,โ€

Erin stepped back with a huff and Axel pulled a top over his head, โ€œYou shouldnโ€™t be so caught up on that bitch,โ€

โ€œStop talking,โ€

โ€œSheโ€™s a cop!โ€ Erin said, โ€œWhy would-โ€

โ€œHow the fuck did you know that?โ€ Axel snapped slamming her against the wardrobe, โ€œI want an answer and I want it fucking now,โ€

Erin stared up at him with wide eyes, โ€œThere is no secret in this house, master. The maids heard everyone talking last night. Iโ€™m sorry. I didnโ€™t mean to overstep my boundary,โ€

โ€œDonโ€™t ever mention her name again. Do you hear me?โ€ Axel hissed, โ€œStrip and get on the fucking bed before I change my mind,โ€

After eating breakfast, Axel went to the basement with his friends. Even though he had used Erin to get rid of some of his pent up anger, he knew that as soon as he laid eyes on Sky, it would return. He glanced at Jake who was carrying a plate of food and he tutted.

โ€œThey donโ€™t deserve to eat,โ€ Axel said.

โ€œThatโ€™s what you think,โ€ Jake said, โ€œIf you want them to talk, then you have to keep them relatively strong,โ€

โ€œSo they can make their escape?โ€

โ€œDo you honestly think they would try?โ€ Jake asked, lifting his eyebrow, "They aren't stupid, Axel."

โ€œUnlock the door, Zeke,โ€ Axel said, turning away from Jake. Zeke held the door open and Axel walked in first, feeling his blood boil at what he saw, โ€œWake the fuck up!โ€

Sky and Jason jerked awake at his yell. Sky grunted as she slipped from the bed and landed on the concrete. She sat up and rubbed her eyes.

โ€œJesus Christ,โ€ He said, โ€œCover the fuck up,โ€

Sky quickly pulled her dress back to cover her breasts and she folded her arms not looking at him, "Not like you haven't seen them before."

โ€œJake has food for you both,โ€ Axel growled, โ€œBe thankful because you donโ€™t deserve food,โ€

Sky looked up at him and he saw her clench her jaw, โ€œNice hickey. You sure move on fast,โ€

โ€œWhy would you care what I do?โ€ Axel said, โ€œI fuck who I want and-โ€

โ€œIf you are going to torture me for answers,โ€ Sky said getting to her feet, โ€œGet it over and done with. Iโ€™m bored of waiting and I have a headache,โ€

โ€œIs that what you want?โ€

โ€œWhy else would I be down here?โ€ Sky snapped, โ€œYou could have just killed me then and there! Problem solved. So why keep me alive?โ€

โ€œZeke,โ€ Axel said, โ€œTake Jason to another room,โ€

โ€œWhat?โ€ Jake said, โ€œYou said-โ€

โ€œI know what I said, and I take it back,โ€ Axel said, โ€œIโ€™ll get my answers from you, Sky, so-โ€

โ€œYou think Iโ€™m worried about you hurting me?โ€ Sky said, โ€œYouโ€™ve never hurt me before and Iโ€™m not scared. Bring it on because I know you wonโ€™t lay a hand on me,โ€

โ€œEveryone, get the fuck out,โ€ Axel said and no one moved, โ€œGet the fuck out!โ€

โ€œJason, donโ€™t fight them,โ€ Sky said, not taking her eyes away from Axel, โ€œThis will be over quicker than you think,โ€

โ€œYouโ€™re suddenly brave,โ€ Axel said, โ€œIs it because I donโ€™t have a gun to your head?โ€

The door closed behind them and Sky shook her head, โ€œNo, because Iโ€™m done with keeping secrets,โ€

โ€œYour whole life is a fucking lie,โ€ Axel said walking towards her with anger behind his eyes, โ€œIโ€™m surprised that you lasted this long without us finding out. Is that why you shot Riley? Was he really working for another gang or were you planning on taking us out one by one?โ€

โ€œIf I wanted to do that. You'd be dead,โ€ Sky said as he stood close to her, โ€œWe wouldnโ€™t be standing here right now and I would be getting a promotion.โ€

Axel grabbed her throat and squeezed, โ€œIf you want to fight me, then go on but I want to know the real reason why you are here. Sending in a fucking cop to bring me and my gang down was a bad idea,โ€

โ€œRiley deserved to die,โ€ Sky said, putting her hands on his wrist, glaring at him โ€œHe deserved worse than one bullet but if I hadnโ€™t of killed him, he would have brought your gang down and I would have never found out who...โ€

โ€œCarry that sentence on, Sky or I will snap your neck,โ€

โ€œSnap it,โ€ Sky whispered, โ€œI dare you,โ€

Axel pushed her away, making her catch her foot on her dress. She fell to the floor and looked up at Axel. Axel ran his hands through his hair in frustration and began to pace the room. He glared at her still sitting on the floor, her dress exposing her legs and he quickly looked away not wanting to fall for her good looks or body.

โ€œJust ask me what you want to know,โ€ Sky said with a sigh, โ€œI canโ€™t keep this up anymore. Iโ€™ll tell you what you want and then you can just get rid of me,โ€

โ€œToo easy,โ€ Axel said, โ€œToo fucking easy,โ€

โ€œWhy? Because Iโ€™m cooperating?โ€

โ€œObviously!โ€ He yelled, โ€œJesus fucking Christ!โ€

He went to kick the chair but remember it was bolted down so he kicked the bed frame making her wince. He grabbed her by the top of her arm and threw her onto the bed. She struggled for a few seconds before he overpowered her and pinned her wrists to the bed next to her head, staring down at her.

Axel was momentarily shocked when he saw tears rolling down the side of her face but he quickly focused again.

โ€œWhy did you lie?โ€ He asked quietly, โ€œWhy were you sent here?โ€

โ€œBecause my partner and best friend was murdered right in front of me,โ€ Sky whispered, closing her eyes, โ€œI came here to...I originally came here to get the evidence I needed to bring you and your gang now,โ€

โ€œOriginally?โ€ Axel frowned, โ€œAnd now?โ€

โ€œIt doesn't matter. Not anymore,โ€ Sky said, โ€œSince Iโ€™m going to die anyway,โ€

โ€œJust tell me,โ€ Axel said.

Sky let out a small laugh and opened her eyes, โ€œI fell in love with the god damn suspect,โ€
