Sky felt her heart race when she stepped into Axel's office, realising that she was the only one in the room with him. Jason was making something to eat and she now wished that she had stuck with him so she didnโ€™t have to sit down in awkward silence. Sky glanced at him but he wasnโ€™t paying attention to her. His eyes were focused on his laptop screen not caring for her standing in the room.

โ€œAxel,โ€ Sky said softly, and she saw his jaw tense, โ€œAre you not going to look at me?โ€

โ€œWhy should I?โ€ He said back, โ€œYou betrayed my trust,โ€

โ€œBy doing what?โ€ Sky whispered.

Axel cut his eyes to her, โ€œI told you that you belonged to me and you ignored that by dancing on stage for other men,โ€

โ€œI wasnโ€™t dancing for other men,โ€ Sky said walking towards the table, โ€œIt was just a bit of fun. You know that I wouldnโ€™t-โ€

โ€œWell, you did,โ€ Axel said, slamming his fist against the table making her jump, โ€œI donโ€™t appreciate my girlfriend dancing for other men!โ€

Sky folded her arms and looked away from him, โ€œYou donโ€™t treat me like your girlfriend anymore, Axel,โ€

โ€œWhatโ€™s that supposed to mean?โ€

โ€œYou treat me like shit,โ€ She said briefly closing her eyes, โ€œYou treat me like a possession. A slave to fuck when you get the urges. I told you that I am my own person and I wonโ€™t be treated as an object. You treated me with more damn respect when I was supposed to be a hooker,โ€

Axel's jaw tensed and he got to his feet, โ€œIf you want to talk about respect, maybe you should learn to respect me,โ€

โ€œRespect you?โ€ Sky scoffed, โ€œYou donโ€™t know the fucking meaning of the word. If you respected me you wouldnโ€™t be treating me like Iโ€™m a piece of shit on the bottom of your shoe! I donโ€™t even think you love me anymore. You claimed your prize and now you can just toss me away for a new model,โ€

Axel's eyes went wide, โ€œYou donโ€™t think I love you?โ€

โ€œIf you loved me you wouldnโ€™t treat me like this,โ€ Sky said, swallowing back tears, โ€œAxel, you know how I feel about you. If I didnโ€™t care about you, then I would have walked away months ago. But I canโ€™t. I love you so much that sometimes I think Iโ€™m going insane,โ€

โ€œSky,โ€ Axel said walking to stand in front of her, โ€œI do love you. Of course, I do. Youโ€™re my girl. The only one Iโ€™ve ever loved. I just...fuck. I donโ€™t know how to protect you without trying to be in control,โ€

Sky wiped her tears away, โ€œYou are hurting me by doing that. Just let me be me and stop acting like Iโ€™m doing things because I donโ€™t respect you. Please. I want this to work but you just have to stop being such an asshole,โ€

Axel sighed and nodded, pulling her against his chest, โ€œIโ€™ll try. I struggle with this. I just donโ€™t know how to control my jealously when it comes to you. I donโ€™t want you to flaunt yourself in front of other men. Your body is for my eyes only,โ€

โ€œAxel,โ€ Sky said, looking up at him, โ€œI love you. No one else,โ€

โ€œI know, baby,โ€ Axel muttered and lowered his lips to hers, kissing her softly, โ€œIโ€™m doing my best,โ€

โ€œYour best isnโ€™t good enough,โ€ Sky whispered.

The door opened and Sky looked over her shoulder to see her brother smiling. But it was soon gone when he saw her in Axel's arms. Zeke said something to him and he scoffed, walking over to one of the sofas. Tyler lifted his eyebrow at Sky and pointed to the seat beside him, making her roll her eyes.

โ€œNow that we are all here,โ€ Axel said sitting down on one of the chairs, โ€œItโ€™s about time I tell you the truth about my brother,โ€

Sky looked over at him, โ€œI thought you didnโ€™t want us to know anything about him,โ€

โ€œI didnโ€™t. I still donโ€™t but Jake made a good point,โ€ He said, โ€œIf I want to protect you, you should know how he works and why we are enemies. Thereโ€™s no point in hiding that anymore. Itโ€™s more dangerous for you to not know,โ€

โ€œIโ€™ve only heard rumours about him,โ€ Darcy said, โ€œWhen I worked the street most girls ran when they saw him but I never knew if the rumours were true or not,โ€

โ€œThey probably were,โ€ Blake said, โ€œFinley is dangerous,โ€

โ€œWhy?โ€ Tyler asked, โ€œWhat has he done?โ€

โ€œHeโ€™s a psychopath,โ€ Axel said, โ€œHe has done disgusting things to humans and animals. When we were kids, our parents got us a dog. A stupid, big, loving dog that was my best friend. I know it sounds stupid but I preferred to be around the dog than my parents. My dad took me out one day when I was 8 to a business meeting of his. At that point, he was pushing guns and drugs. Mum was out with her sister and left Finley with a babysitter,โ€

Axel sighed and lit a cigarette, shaking his head.

โ€œMy dad had to stop the meeting because he got a call from my mum and even though I was sitting in the corner playing with a car,โ€ Axel muttered, โ€œI could hear her screaming down the phone. Dad grabbed me and rushed out of the meeting, speeding home. It was the first time I ever showed sadness,โ€

โ€œWhat happened?โ€ Tyler asked.

Axel sighed out smoke, โ€œMy ever so cute 5-year-old brother had killed my dog. But not just killed him. He tore him apart. Took his eyes out, then slowly worked his way down my dogโ€™s body until there was only a torso left. My mum didnโ€™t notice me until I screamed and she quickly locked me in my bedroom before I could see my brother running around with the dogโ€™s ears held to his head,โ€

Sky gasped, โ€œWhat the fuck?โ€

โ€œI hated him from that day,โ€ Axel said, โ€œMy mum and dad tried their best to get him help and when we thought he was getting better, he snapped and that was it. They had him sectioned at 14 and had to disown him. I had tried to kill him when I was 17 just before they had him sectioned,โ€


Axel looked over at Sky, โ€œBecause he attacked my mum and the house cleaner. He hit mum on the back of the head with a frying pan and then turned his attention to the house cleaner. He then tried to...hurt her in more ways than you can think. When I got home, I found mum groaning in pain and then found him pinning the lady to the kitchen counter. I pulled my gun out and shot him in the leg. But did he cry out in pain? No. He fucking laughed and asked me to shoot him again. He wanted to feel the pain because it gave him pleasure,โ€

โ€œWow,โ€ Tyler said.

โ€œThatโ€™s why I didnโ€™t want to tell you about him,โ€ Axel said, โ€œI want to protect you and keep you out of harmโ€™s way. If Finley got his hands on you I wouldnโ€™t know what he would do to you,โ€

โ€œI understand why you didnโ€™t want to tell them,โ€ Zeke said, โ€œBut now itโ€™s out in the air, we need to think of a way to let Sky and Tyler have their freedom without getting hurt,โ€

Axel nodded and stubbed his cigarette out, โ€œWhich is why you both have bodyguards now,โ€

โ€œWhat?โ€ Sky said, โ€œBut-โ€

โ€œI donโ€™t give a shit if you know how to handle yourself,โ€ Axel snapped, โ€œI know you can handle yourself but Finley isnโ€™t just anyone. He is dangerous,โ€

โ€œYouโ€™re dangerous,โ€

โ€œMaybe so,โ€ Jake said, โ€œBut Axel would never hurt you or any other woman. Finley will torture you until you beg him to kill you but if he agrees to do it, he will do it slowly. Sky, we just want to look out for you and your brother. Please, can you just agree to have a bodyguard?โ€

Sky sighed and nodded, โ€œI suppose but Iโ€™ve never had one before,โ€

โ€œGood,โ€ Axel muttered, โ€œEveryone out. Sky, you need to stay. We need to talk,โ€

โ€œThis canโ€™t end well,โ€ Darcy said under her breath.
