Chapter 1


It was already evening and I was still looking for Aunt Denise's house. I came across a building with loud music coming from inside. It turned out to be a club. I entered, hoping to find someone who would show me the way.

All eyes settled on me as I came in but I ignored them. I decided to relax before I continued the search for my aunt and went over to the counter.

"What can I get for you,beautiful?" The bartender asked.


"Coming right up."

I downed three shots, unsatisfied. I knew it was wrong for me to be drinking, especially since it brought back memories of me being forced to take shots by the drunken harassers who captured me and some others years ago when I ran away from home.

While waiting for my fourth glass, a man came and sat beside me. His hands were gloved and enclosed in one of them was a black helmet. I guess it was safe to assume he was a biker.

"Hello darling, did you just fart? Cause you blew me away." He said, almost making me choke on the laughter I was holding. Did he really think he was going to win me over with that stupid line? Men are stupid.

"Oh, I see. You're not a talker, right?" Getting no response from me, he continued,

"Well, I don't need you to talk, just to satisfy me." He ran his large hand across my lap, I immediately reached out to stop it.

"Don't touch me." I threw his hand away and his expression changed.

"And what if I do darling? C'mon baby,will you really stop me?" He tried to touch me again and without thinking, my hand came in contact with his cheek sharply.

He stood up and pulled my hair, making me groan loudly. Is there really no one here who cares enough to stop this?

"I don't like disrespectful girls,darling." He whispered against my neck.

My anger rose and I stomped on his foot with my tall black heels, he let go of my braids screaming."Never hurt a lady." I punched his stomach and kicked him in his groin, he fell down and cried out in pain.

It was almost comical to see a grown man on the floor, grasping at his foot with one hand and clutching his crotch with the other.

His friends came to help, I presume. "What's wrong with you, girlie? Look what you did."

"I told him not to touch me." I turned back to the counter and drained the last shot. I was upset but I didn't want a big scene so I stumbled across the room, away from them. I felt a hand turn me around and punch me hard, slamming me into a wooden table.

"Don't mess with us, girl." I heard a deep masculine voice say. I run up to the man and plunge myself at him. He falls to the ground with a loud thud, giving me the opportunity to tase him.

"Never even think about trying to hurt a lady next time." I threatened. I moved away from him, towards the exit. What is wrong with people here?

"Hey, get back here. You just beat up our boss and his brother" I turned to face the rest of the gang with a smirk,

"You're right. I deserve an award."

Most of them moved back in fear but three of them came closer trying to attack me. I definitely wasn't going to get out of this without injuries.

One charged at me with full speed and once he was near, I immediately attacked him with my pepper spray and dived out of the way for him to hit the wall and fall. I felt like I was in a movie and I was the hero beating up bad guys. Of course, that was all thanks to the adrenaline pulsing through me, and maybe vodka. I motioned to the other two to come and they ran towards me,at the same time. Thanks to my slim figure, I was able to slide under them moving to the other side of the room. They looked at each other and nodded,as if they had a plan.

One of the bikers came towards me slowly allowing me to move away till I was in the middle of the room. There was a lot of space now since almost everyone had taken to their heels when I was on the table. So now I was in the middle of the two bikers who were charging at me now with full speed. These guys were dumber than I thought. I moved away suddenly as they were about to pounce on me,causing them to slam into each other. Hard. Didn't know that worked in real life.

I sat back on a stool, inspecting my cuts and bruises. I was actually expecting a broken bone but there was none. I stood up to leave when I heard the sirens of police cars. Two cops came in, they looked startled as they saw five unconscious men on the floor. Great, more drama.

"What happened here?" One of them asked.

"Officer, it was that girl over there. She got into a fight with those bikers and now look, the club is ruined." A stripper replied in a high pitched voice that irritated me. I hated her already. The officers looked at the remaining people there and they all nodded, agreeing with the stripper.

I screwed up my nose and rolled my eyes. Snitches get stitches.

Then they came to me. My first day in this stupid city and I was about to get arrested. Didn't anyone here know who I was? "Hello Ms. We would like to talk to you. What's your name?" Think,think,think.

"My name? It's um..Stacy Macaroni"

Stacy Macaroni? Seriously? I'm so doomed.

"Well Miss Stacy,you just destroyed a perfectly good club. Can you please tell us why?"

Wait, did they seriously believe me? Wow, these people are dumber than I thought

"Officer,it's very simple. I'm suffering from intermittent explosive disorder. It's like having anger issues but it's advanced and it's just comes and goes so that was what just happened. When that biker tried to harass me,as the gentle lady that I am I tried to make him stop but my disorder took control. It's a really sad story, officer" I lied again,shedding crocodile tears. Ugh, this was seriously going to ruin my makeup. I looked at the first biker I had beaten up. I was pretty sure that I had crushed his eggs with my heels. Poor dude! It was his fault though. But how did anyone here not know who I was? Wow,this was so devastating.

Thankfully, the officers believed me and decided not to arrest me. Instead, they were gonna take me to the owner of the club which wasn't a problem since I had money to pay for the damages. And hospital bills. I convinced the officers and we left.


"Yes,of course. It was a pleasure doing business with you. Good night." I groaned after ending the call. I had a lot of work to do.

"Mr Rivera, the police have arrived with the culprit. They are waiting downstairs sir."

"Be there soon, Geoffrey." I told my butler and he left. I was really curious to see the person that had the nerve to fight in my club and destroy it. I wasn't gonna let him go, I was going to make sure that he paid for his crime.

"Sup Grayson." Matt, my best friend snapped me out of my thoughts. I really didn't know why I wasn't mad at him. He was supposed to be managing my clubs,that's why he was the manager of my clubs but as usual I'm sure he was out on a date with his mate, my sister, Alexa.

"Hey, so where's the dummy who had the nerve to destroy something of mine?"

"Well, that was just rude," A voice said behind me. I turned to find a blue eyed angel glaring a me. Pretty and fierce was what described the look she was giving me at that moment best. I couldn't stop staring at her. She was simply beautiful. "It's not like I want to be here. I just don't have a choice. I have a reputation to protect." She stated bringing me back to earth.

"You look oddly familiar." Alexa said to her.

"Maybe you saw her in a book of criminals." Matt replied, causing her to glare at him.

"What's your name?" I asked her with a straight face, struggling to control my lycan who really just wanted to burst out and grab her. What was happening actually?

"Stacy, Stacy Macaroni," Matt answered for her.

"Wait...Macaroni?"Alexa giggled.

"That's what the cops told us before they left, they also said she was new in town and then your darling sister suggested that they should leave her here. Now she's insisting to stay here till tomorrow morning. For all we know, she could be a serial killer."

"If I was one, trust me you'd be dead by now." Stacy told him with an evil smile. Her voice sounded soft and elegant. It was driving my lycan and I crazy slowly.

"Enough. So you wrecked my club?" I walked up to her slowly,taking in her smell. It was sharp and rosey and it made my nose tingle. The smell of a delicate flower. Wait. Unusual yet delightful smell? Extreme beauty? My lycan being drawn? Could she be...?

"I only did you a favour, those bikers were causing chaos. Someone had to do something." She replied,without a hint of fear.

I grabbed her hand and pulled her closer to me. Even sparks between us too. She really was? "Listen, I don't know where you're from but in this city, I'm the boss. I'm really not to be messed with."

I stopped,waiting for a reaction but got none.

"I have no time to deal with you right now and I won't issue a case or anything against you. Alexa will show you where to sleep for the night."I said strictly. I turned to leave slightly brushing my arm against hers and the sparks intensified, making my lycan almost go wild again.

"You're letting her stay?" Matt whisper shouts. I ignore him.

"I'm also a boss. Don't mess with me and I won't mess with you."She told me.

"That's funny. Considering the fact that you destroyed something of mine."

"Oh, stop whining! I'll compensate you for the club. Just see it as my hello to the so-called boss of this place."

She left me speechless and all I could do was grin.

"Good night."she said, smirking and left with Alexa.

I watched her as she left. So this was what it felt like to have a mate. Fun.

"I knew it! I knew her name isn't Stacy." Alexa barged into the dining room, disrupting my lunch with Matt.

"Where have you been?" Matt asked.

"I knew I had seen her face somewhere so I did some research. Look." She threw a magazine at me. Stacy was on the cover and it read; New York's Celebrity Chef, Scarlett Paige. "Yesterday, she looked so familiar, especially with the hair. I saw her in the magazine once. She even has the same white streak."

"Great, so she's a serial killer with a fake name." Matt said and I nudged him."What? I'm not wrong."

"Guys, that's not all. When I tried to remember who she was, I couldn't so I went to get some help from aunt and the elders. Turns out she's not only Scarlett Paige, she's also Jackson and Sienna's daughter."

"What?" Matt and I said in unison.

"No way! That's not possible. Their daughter died ten years ago on her 15th birthday. Remember?" Matt told her. He still had a bad feeling about Stacy. I wonder how he'd react if I told him what I also found out.

"Yes Matt but we didn't see the body, did we? Besides, we know their daughter was a human and when I saw her picture as a child this morning, she had the same white streaks."

"This is not good. You know we have bad history with her family. Wait, what if she knows and she's back for revenge? We're so doomed."

"Relax sweetie." She rubbed his back gently. "I'm sure she doesn't know. We just need to find out why she's here and then we'll decide what to do. C'mon, let's go inside."

So she was Jackson's daughter? That explained why she was so tough, in a cute way though. If she was really his daughter, then it means she wasn't safe in this city. What if they came back for her? That can't happen. I have to protect her, no matter what. Where was she anyways?
