Alani Harington’s P.O.V.
I woke up feeling pain everywhere. Tears sprang to my eyes as I remembered what happened. My uncle finally snapped. He’s been beating me for years and for the most part I’ve been able to hide it. This time though he wanted to give me to some friends of his for a fun time to pay off a debt of his.
I fought back against him and that’s when he snapped. It started with him just throwing me around and escalated to him straddling me and pummeling my face.
He was the first one to take me, then he let each of his five friends have their way with me. One of them decided he wanted to see what he could fit in me and didn’t stop until he had used a pipe.
No matter how much I screamed, we lived so far out that no one heard me and no one came to my rescue. My adopted brother Maximilian came down stairs crying and screaming for them to let me go and Hudson responded by throwing him clear across the room.
He called some woman over to get Maxi and told me if I made another sound for the remainder of the night that Maximilian would be the one to pay. So when his friends were done and he started beating me again I held in every scream I could.
I passed out when he started stabbing me. I couldn’t take the pain anymore. When I woke up I was all alone and I couldn’t find Maxi anywhere. I knew I had to go to Miles’ clubhouse and get help. They could find what Hudson had done with Max and keep me safe.
As I wiped my tears the door to the room I was currently in slowly swung open revealing a 5ft 9in handsome tanned young man with black hair and light brown eyes. He reminded me of uncle Jaden.
“Ah my girl’s awake,” he said in a deep husky voice as he approached me.
“What?” I asked, confused.
“You’ve been asleep for 2 days now,” he told me.
He stretched his hand out to me, “Come on let’s get you some food.”
“Where’s Miles?” I asked, sitting up and pulling my knees up to my chest.
“Out looking for your brother,” said a familiar voice that made my heart flutter.
“What are you doing here Kayce?” the first boy sneered.
“My job Llyod,” he snapped back, getting in his face.
“President’s son or not, I won’t let you harass Alani,” Kayce growled at him with his fist clench by his side.
Before he could come up with a retort Kayce had pushed passed him and was gently helping me out of the hospital bed I was in.
“Hi Kayce,” I said with a light blush.
“Been a long time darlin’,” he said in that sexy southern voice of his.
Next thing I knew Lloyd had grabbed Kayce by his shirt collar and had him against the wall.
“Let me make this clear Kayce, you keep your damn hands off my girl!” he sneered.
“I’m not your girl!” I snapped.
He turned to glare at me so fast I thought he’d get whiplash.
“I’m not anyone’s girl,” I said walking out of the room.
I heard Kayce say, “Well You heard the lady, she ain’t yours,” before he left the room after me.
“Hungry?” he asked.
“Starved,” I told him.
It didn’t take us long to reach the kitchen. Kayce was pulling out ingredients to cook while I was going through the leftovers.
“I think I’ll just have some pulled pork burgers,” I told him.
He shrugged and continued cooking himself something. Just as the microwave went off, a hispanic guy I haven’t seen around before came into the kitchen.
“Buenos días hermosa. ¿Como te sientes?,” he said as he opened the fridge next to me.
“I’m sorry I don’t speak spanish,” I told him, blushing.
“That’s okay, I was merely asking how you are feeling today. You looked pretty bad when you came in hermosa,” he explained.
“Everything hurts but I’m okay. I hope Miles finds my brother soon though,” I told him as I made my way to the bar to eat.
“Ah yes. Señor Hines will not rest until he finds pequeño Maximiliano,” he told me.
“My name is Caven Ramirez,” he said, extending his hand to me.
“I’m Alani Harington,” I said, shaking his hand.
I ate in silence while Kayce(sitting to my right) and Caven(sitting to my left) continued to carry on a conversation between them in spanish. I never knew Kayce could speak spanish before but as I recall 2 years ago there were no spanish members in the club either.
It had been 3 days and I still hadn’t seen Miles. Everyone in the club had been kind and inviting and did their best to keep me distracted from worrying. It was kind of them but it didn’t help.
I mostly spent my time with either Kayce watching movies and playing video games or with Caven in the garage learning how to fix some of the vehicles that needed repair and learning a little spanish too.
Caven and Kayce were quickly becoming my best friends. And Conor was quickly becoming a pain in my ass as he just wouldn’t stop pestering me about being his damn girl.
“Hey baby wanna go for a ride?” Conor asked me.
“No thanks,” I said walking away from him and down the hallway to my bedroom hoping he’d get the hint and leave me be.
He continued to follow me, “Come on baby, you’re always hanging out with that greaseball and Kayce. Spend some time with me Sugar,” he said pinning me to my bedroom door.
“I’d rather be covered in grease all day than to spend any time with you Conor,” I snapped, spitting in his face, pushing him back and opening my door.
I tried to close it quickly but he stuck his foot in the way and pushed my door open so hard I stumbled back.
“Now now now,” he said, closing my door behind him and locking it.
“I think you owe me an apology, little Lani,” he said, using Miles’ nickname for me and pushing me up against my bed.
“Get out or I’ll scream,” I told him.
He backhanded me, making me fall onto my bed. In seconds he was on top of me.
“I don’t think so unless you want me to punish you even more,” he sneered in my ear.
He thought I was some plaything he could beat around into submission. I was pissed off. I kneed him in his balls as hard as I could and threw him off me.
“HELP KAYCE, CAVEN!” I screamed running to my door.
Just as I unlocked it Conor had thrown me back to the ground and was straddling me, choking me. I heard my bedroom door burst open. Caven was at my side making sure I was okay and Kayce was pummeling the life out of Conor.
“Kayce!” Jaden yelled, pulling him off his son.
“What on earth?” Miles said, standing behind Kayne with Maximilian behind him.
“MAXI!,” I called out to him and he ran straight into my arms.
“You’re okay,” I cried in relief.
“Someone wanna tell me why my VP is unconscious on the floor?” Kayne asked.
“He tried to rape me,” I spat, glaring at Conor’s unconscious form.
“Conor would never do such a thing,” Jaden said, glaring at me.
“Lani wouldn’t lie about something like this,” Kayne snapped glaring at his president.
“You okay Princesa?” Caven asked me.
“My throat hurts from him choking me and my cheek is sore where he slapped me but I’ll be okay,” I replied.
He kissed my temple before helping me up.
“How about we go fix a car?” he said, smirking at me.
I shook my head needing a good distraction. Max and I followed him down to the garage where there was a blue 2008 honda civic.
