It's finally here my first year of high school! Freshman year... the start of a new school, and to say I'm nervous is an understatement. I'm on the shorter side at 5 foot 4 inches, and on the slimmer side thanks to uncle Frankie and dad's rigorous training over the summer. I have some curves to be just enough with brown hair that curls down to my lower back. I have green eyes from my grandma Gracie, and a slightly tan skin. I wake up and quickly jump in the shower using my strawberry scent body wash. I just pinned up my hair so I can quickly style it this morning.
I quickly throw some skinny jeans on with a cute pink top and a warm jean jacket with some ankle boots. I put on some simple makeup, nothing too much. Just some mascara and lipgloss while pinning half my hair up, and spraying some body spray. I quickly grab my backpack to head downstairs to get some food. Some of the men that work for my dad and brother are downstairs as they have an important shipment coming in today. They are meeting here first with some men then they head over to the other mansion, and then to the old business building and get the rest of the guys.
As I head downstairs a lot of the younger guys stop and turn to stare, because hey being THE boss's only daughter and sister is a sure way to keep your ass safe. They are cute don't get me wrong, but I can't date till after I'm 18. If my dad and uncle Frankie have their way it will be never. Just in case they had me training as soon as I could walk on how to fight. Training so I could always take care of myself.
Caden "Hey! Focus!"
Frankie "What the fuck you all looking at?"
They all snap back to what is going on, and I just chuckle internally. I quickly walk through the hall into the kitchen grabbing a muffin, some orange juice, and go sit at the table. As I sit down I see some soldiers sneaking looks and whispering to each other. I won't lie there's a few I think are hot... but no way am I saying anything. I know how Frankie and my dad work. I will see them one day and not the next. As I eat I hear them adjourn the meeting for the moment and people start walking into the kitchen to grab their breakfast. I am swarmed by soldiers all trying to sit next to me while trying to make small talk, and as soon as I go to respond my dad and Frankie boot the two sitting next to me to sit down. They sit down and everyone leaves of course.
Frankie "Don't you be talking to no boys! Not in this house!"
"Or anywhere." Rolling my eyes
Dad "Jocelyn Gracie Maxwell don't you get smart with your uncle!"
"Dad seriously... you guys have trained me to fight, kill, and shoot. I can't even talk to a boy?"
They both at the same time yell "NO!"
I roll my eyes and that's when I see him... Jessie. He is one of my dad's younger soldiers at 19 and he is built. He is also my brother's best friend. He practically grew up here when their parents died. He is almost as big as my dad and uncle Frank with muscles upon muscles. He has tattoos all over his body and I only ever see what's on his arms and neck outside of his shirt. If I could only see under that shirt and maybe a little lower. I just stare looking at him and Frankie and my dad must have caught what I was looking at. Jessie catches me looking and gives me a wink. I quickly look down at my muffin that seems very interesting right now as my cheeks flush.
Tank walks in and points to his watch.. shit we gotta go! We quickly get up, as I grab my backpack and start walking to the front of the house. My dad is in front of me as my uncle is behind me when we walk in front of Jessie. He looks down at me and I can't help but smile and wink. He winks back, and is grabbed by his shirt by my uncle.
Frankie "Don't even think about it!" Jessie put his arms up in surrender.
"Uncle Frankie stop! He didn't hurt anyone!"
Frankie "Listen Jocelyn, no way are you looking at him he's 19."
"Holy moly, I'm not doing anything with him."
Why oh why do they have to be like this! They bring the eye candy here, but I know I know. No touching.... but flirting.. to me it's not a big deal. We slowly make our way towards the front and I see my brother Nate ready to head out also. He works for our dad at the office in town. We live on the outskirts in a huge estate with so much family and my dad's main guards and their families. It's been a tough year this year as we lost my grandma Gracie that I'm named after. She fell asleep next to my grandpa Fernando, and just never woke up. So now he busies himself working in the main house doing paperwork for my dad and Nate.
The estate we live in apparently they got by taking out some rival. My mom was pregnant with me at the time, and killed him herself. My mom is such a bad ass. The house is a huge 3 story house with a light gray marble flooring and cream walls, the first floor consists of the kitchen and dining area, as we have a lot to feed. A large conference room and a large entertainment room. Second floor is where all the guards and their families live, and the third floor is our floor. We have a pool out back, with separate houses for my grandpa Fernando, and Tank's parents.
I run and give Nate a hug as Tank and Frankie head past me to get the car going.
Nate "Have fun at school kiddo!"
"I will! See you later!"
I quickly run through the door and jump into the suv as we head off down the driveway to the high school. As the drive seems to take forever I just watch as the scenery goes by hoping it will be quiet.
Frankie "Tank man our girl was checking out Jessie!"
Well there goes the being a quite ride...as I roll my eyes....
Tank "Jocelyn what the hell that kid!"
Frankie "Yeah man they even winked at each other!"
Tank "Jocelyn I swear! No one gets to look at our girl!"
"Omg you two! You have been doing this shit since elementary school. Jesus christ give it a rest. You know at some point I will be over 18 right!
Frankie "Even then you ain't looking at no boys!"
As I roll my eyes I see the high school come into view and thank God I can leave this drama behind me. As we pull up to the front Tank throws it in park as both him and Frankie open my door to let me out. All the people up front stop and stare because these two look like mafia guys ear pieces and all. I slowly get out as I see girls giving me dirty looks, and the guys turn their full attention at me. I can feel the hate coming off these two towards the guys. I see them out of the corner of my eye giving dirty looks. If they had a choice I would of been home schooled. I slowly laugh internally at myself as I walk into the school towards my locker. No one seems to want to chat with me because maybe they think they might disappear tomorrow if they did. I slowly make it to my locker and open it to shuffle stuff around as two girls come up to me.
Mary "Hey that was a little intimidating huh."
Kerri "I can't imagine dealing with that every day, I feel sorry for you!"
"Well they live with the family and one is an uncle so they are always around me."
Kerri "Yikes! By the way I'm Kerri and this is Mary."
"Hi guys, first year?"
Mary "Yep, and I think we will stick around you, might make the year go quicker."
"Ok, sounds good. I have a feeling not a lot of people will talk to me."
We all laugh as I shut my locker and we head off to our classes. The morning seems to slowly drag on and before I realize it's lunch. I quickly go grab my lunch and spot Mary and Kerri at a table as they flag me down to sit with them. They start chatting about a kid named Ricardo thats in Mary's elective art class or something. Mary keeps going on about how dreamy he is and big. He's a junior and when he walked in all the girls sucked in their breath.
Mary "I heard he always has girls trying to get his attention, but never gives any of them the time of day. A girl that's a junior in the class said he has been waiting for one girl to come along, and would only wait for her."
"That seems weird. Is he out here sitting?"
Mary "No not yet. I don't see him."
We all just shrug our shoulders and start chatting about our other classes so far. We hear the bell ring ending lunch and signaling to get back to classes. We get up and turn in our trays and head out to classes. The day seems to go by quick and soon it's over. I quickly run to my locker grabbing all my stuff and head towards the front of the school. I see Tank and Frankie standing there of course with scowls on their faces. As I walk up Frankie looks to me and starts talking.
Frankie "How was your day?"
"It's ok I made some friends."
Tank "What kind of friends?"
"Don't worry they are girls!"
As we stand there chatting they both stop and stare past me. I stop and turn around and see this huge muscle of a guy. He looks like that bad ass kid who causes nothing but trouble. Dark hair, dark brown eyes and dark skin... oh my! He spots me looking at him, and as he walks by he winks at me. We watch him as he walks by over to his ride. There are two men in suits that open up the suv for him to climb in. We all stare and Frankie grabs me throwing me in the car slamming the door. I see him and Tank talking quietly to each other than grab the phone. They talk quickly then both get in the suv and we drive in silence all the way home. As we pull up and park my dad is in the doorway.
We walk up and as we enter my dad stops to talk to me.
Dad "Jocelyn... who was the boy?"
"I don't know who it is? I think he's a junior."
Tank "Boss you don't think it is who we think it is do you?"
Dad "I don't know the age fits."
Frankie "Do you know his name Jocelyn?"
"If it is who I think it is, Mary said his name is like Richard or something."
Dad "Hhhhmmm, we will have to do some digging. Anyways how was your day sweetie."
"It was ok."
As I go upstairs I wonder who this kid is that they keep talking about? Why did they get so nervous. Does it have to do with the past? Oh my though he is dreamy just like Mary said! I can't quite remember his name, but wonder who the girl he was waiting for.
To be continued.....
