The last weeks have gone wonderfully, I don’t remember when I was so happy. After school, I spent time with girls, Sofia, or the guys, and within a few weeks, I came closer to them. I found out that Dominic’s parents work abroad, he didn’t want to live alone so he moved to live with Luca. Luke disagrees with his parents, so he spends most of his time in this house and also has his own room if he wants to stay here. But I spent most of my time with Luca.
A few days ago, I started working in a coffee shop near the school. I work three to four times a week, a few hours a day. The salary is not the best but it is better than living out other people’s money. However, Luca is not happy with my decision, but he will have to get used to it because that’s one of those things that I’m not going to obey.
I’ve been thinking about joining college a few times, but then I remember that I don’t have the money, so I’ll work hard to get a scholarship.
There are not many people in today’s coffee shop, probably because Friday and most of them go somewhere to have fun. I understand them, all that boring routine is very quickly fed up. I also have a few plans for the evening, first Luca will come to pick me up and then take me to Anna, we’ve been planning to have a mini-girls’ evening for a long time, but unfortunately, Lisa won’t be here.
Finally, at the end of my shift, I go change clothes and say goodbye to my colleague Sofia, she’s a funny and friendly girl. True, we didn’t have much time to get to know each other, but I think we’re going to agree.
When I go outside, I look around, but I can’t see Luca’s car. I’m worried because he’s always come on time, there’s never been a time for me to have to wait for him. All of a sudden, I hear the car signal, looking at the sound source, and I recognize that it’s Dominic’s car. With a quick step, I go to the car, quickly open the door and get inside.
“Hey, where’s Luca? Why didn’t he come?” I asked while putting a seatbelt.
“Luca’s father suddenly appeared, he couldn’t get out. Therefore, he asked me to take care that you would safely go to Anna.” I nod and I’m not going to get into this topic anymore when Luca’s ready he’ll tell me everything.
Our ride wasn’t long. When we arrived at Anna’s house, I quickly thanked Dominic for bringing me and quickly ran toward her main door, and before I could knock on the door, the door opened and Anna hugged me.
“I missed you.”
“We saw each other a few hours ago.” I say laughing.
“It doesn’t matter, you spend more time with Luca lately than with us,” she says, climbing the stairs to the second floor, and I just roll my eyes.
“Don’t be jealous.” I say grinning.
When we are in her room she closes the door behind me and I make myself comfortable on the bed. While she sat down in front of me, she crossed her legs with a big smile on her face.
“So, tell me what’s going between you and Luca?” she says wiggling her eyebrows.
“I don`t know, we live together, we sleep in the same bed. I like him a lot, I feel safe with him, I don’t have any more nightmares, but we didn’t have the chat about what we are to each other. I kinda want to be in a serious relationship, but I don’t want to be the one rushing the things.” I say honestly.
“Wow, I never thought I would hear these words coming from you,” she says laughing a little.
“I didn’t expect to find someone like him either, but here we are.” I say shrugging my shoulders.
“I’m happy for you,” she said still smiling.
“What about you and Dominic?” I ask smirking, if she thinks I haven’t noticed all those secret glances between them, she’s stupid.
“Nothing..” she says blushing, I just laugh, this is priceless.
All evening we stay talking about everything until we can`t keep our eyes open. I go to sleep with my thoughts revolving about Luca.
The next morning we decided to go for a little shopping, she thought it would be a good idea to buy myself some new lingerie outfits. I don’t know where that kind of thought came from, I don’t think I’m ready to have sex with Luca, or maybe so.
“You go through this store, I need to use the bathroom.” I say walking away in another direction.
As I walked toward the toilet, I noticed two guys walking after me. Without thinking about it much, I decided to ignore them, maybe they would disappear soon. Because next to the toilets there is a door to the parking lot, maybe they go there. Yes, I guess I’m right.
When I finished I took a last quick glance at the mirror, to make sure my hair was good and went to get out.
When I opened the door, someone grabbed me behind my elbow and quickly covered my mouth with his palm. I tried to free myself, but he dragged me to the nearest door, which led to the parking lot.
“Don’t scream, or I’m going to kill your friend who came here with you, do you understand little girl?” he said next to my ears, I quickly nodded my head.
Suddenly from a dark corner, there appeared two guys whom I saw passing behind me, one was taller than the other, with dark hair and with a stupid smile on his face.
“Your mother didn’t lie, you really are beautiful, princess.” The taller guy said, what the fuuck… My mother? How?
“I see that your head is full of questions, but I will be quick. Your mother owes me, and she said you’d give me all my money back. You have time before next Sunday to get me my 10,000 dollars or I’ll take you and you will earn every penny with your charming body. Don’t worry, I’ll find you when the time comes. And to know that I’m not kidding, I’ll leave a little reminder to you about me.” When he said that, he pulled the pocket knife out of his pocket and gently attached to my collarbone.
Out of fear, I began to tremble, but I did not want to let him see the fear in my eyes. Having firmly bitten my teeth, I was waiting for the pain to come. Suddenly I felt the blade of the knife swinging into my skin and slowly sliding my skin. After a few seconds, I felt a stream of hot blood dripping down my skin.
He quickly pulled the knife away, admired his work. He smiled and went away with his lapdogs.
My life just couldn’t get better, that bitch of a mother had to take money from some gangster and put all the debt on my shoulders. How the hell I’m going to get that damn money in a week. What should I do... In the meantime, I need to get the fuck out of here.
I quickly run back looking for Anna, I spot her chatting with some guy.
“Hey, I need to leave right now.” I say trying to catch a breath.
“What’s wrong? What happened?” she asks and I see how her eyes drift to my collarbone. Shit, I forgot about that. I quickly put on a sweater so that no one can see the wound.
“I will tell you at home.” I say.
We quickly ran into her car and quickly drove to Luca’s house, but I hope that perhaps he will make some suggestions about this situation. Because I really don’t want to end up working for some gangster as a prostitute.
