Chapter 9

Xander’s POV;

When Sienna got shot and was laying on the floor in her own blood, my heart nearly stopped. I still can't get the image out of my head. Currently the doctor is checking her up, and I'm pacing outside my bedroom door waiting for Isabella to finish. Isabella is our family doctor, she treats us whenever we get shot or hurt. Luckily it wasn't a male doctor, I don't know how I feel about having another male touch her.

"Stop pacing Xander. She's going to be fine." My twin sister Sophie says.

"How can you say that! She got shot twice, not once TWICE! Do you know how much blood she lost?!!" I yell.

"Do you even care about her? I mean she's just a girl. You have never 'had emotions' with a girl." My dad says.

"I CARE ABOUT HER OKAY?!!!" I blurt out. Wait what?! Dad's right I don't 'do feelings.' What is she doing to me?!

"Cora! Don't you dare tell Sienna about any of this! Understood?" I can't have Sienna know what I said.

"Omg big bro! Congrats!" My little brother Ryder says.

"It's not that big of a deal. Yes I care about her, so what?" I arch my eyebrow.

"Hijo you're kidding right?! You're finally letting yourself have emotions again other than being heartless and cold." My mom says. (Translation- Hijo = Son)

I just roll my eyes.

"Anyway I'm going to go to my sisters house and pick a few things up." My mom says, she kisses my cheek and hugs me before leaving.

"I'm going to go and hang out with the guys. I'll see you all later." Ryder says.

"Don't get into trouble! I don't want to come and save you again if you interfere with other gangs." I say.

"You know me brother! Trouble is my middle name!" He winks and walks out.

Just then Isabella walks out.

"How is she?!" Cora is the first one to speak.

Isabella sighs. What? What's wrong with her?!

"Isabella say something!" I shout.

"She lost a lot of blood, but she is stable.
She won't wake up today due to the amount of blood loss. Just keep an eye out when she wakes up. She said not be able to walk for 3 days or more. I'll keep coming to check on her to see if everything is fine." She explains.

"No one enters this room except me! Understood?" I look at everyone and they all nod their head.

"Good!" I walk into the room and see Siennas' unconscious body on my bed with tubes on her arm and nose. She's wearing my shirt which is like a dress for her. My heart hurts to see her like this. This is all my fault if I left her alone she wouldn't have gotten shot and she wouldn't be in this condition right now.

I go to the bed and hold her hand in mine. She seems so fragile, if she was awake right now she would probably be yelling at me for doing this. Just then there is a knock on the door. I thought I told everyone not to come in here? Well at least they knocked.

"Who is it?!!!" I shout.

"It's me, Scar!" He shouts.

I climb out of the bed and walk out of the room and see Scar standing there.

"How is she?" Scar asks.

"She's stable, but she won't be able to walk for a few days, and she won't wake up today since she lost a lot of blood."

"At least she's stable." He says.

"Yeah." I replied back.

"Anyway I wanted to ask you who attacked us?"

"It was the Venom Killers." Scar replies with hatred in his voice.

"WHAT?!!!" I yell.

"But why them! We haven't done or heard anything from them for years! Why now?!"
I am so confused. Why would they just pop up all of a sudden? They are our worst enemy but they haven't attacked us in years.

"I don't know. But isn't it weird that all of a sudden they pop up when you start 'seeing' Sienna?" He asks, arching his eyebrow.

"What are you trying to say?" I ask.

"What if Sienna has something to do with them?" He asks.

"How can she? She has nothing to do with the mafia. Like she doesn't know anything about it." I say. Right? She doesn't know anything about the mafia lifestyle so how can she have anything to do with another mafia?

"Think about it, when she tried to punch you at the club her aim was perfect, if you weren't fast enough you would've been punched in the face. She fights like she was trained to do it, also her surname Garcia that could've been just fake to hide her identity." He explained.

"Impossible." I say.

"Just think about it dude." He says and walks off.

I head back into the room, shower and change and then lay in bed with Sienna next to me. Call me creepy but I've wanted to do this for so long.

Two days later ~

The past two days I have been working on finding out why the Venom Killers are back. But I find nothing useful, it's like their whole reason they came back was a secret. I wake up the next morning and call Isabella to come and check on Sienna. It's been 2 whole days and she still hasn't woken up. 30 minutes later Isabella arrives and goes to check up on Sienna. I wait outside of the room to let Isabella do her work.

"How is she?! Is everything fine???" I ask as soon as she walks out of the room.

"Calm down Xander! Yes she's fine, she's doing a lot better. I have removed the tubes she should be waking up later today. When she wakes up keep a close eye on her, make sure she doesn't manage to open the stitches." She explains and I nod. When she leaves I head into my room and see Sienna sleeping peacefully on the bed without the tubes. Seeing her without the tubes makes me feel at peace, constantly looking at the tubes made me think that she wasn't going to make it.

Later in the evening ~

When I walk into the room I see Sienna stand up and fall back down. Is she crazy?!

"Why did you try to stand up?!" I ask her angrily. Ignoring the fact that she just woke up.

"You’re hurt badly! You got shot for god's sake! Why would you try to stand up?!"

"I'm alive aren't I?" She replies. Why isn't she making a big deal out of this? Like getting shot isn't a big deal?

"Yeah but you could've died!" I say raising my voice.

"Wait! How long was I out for?" She asks and I sigh.

"Two days." She starts to panic and starts having a panic attack.
I quickly sit next to her and stroke her back.

"Take deep breaths." I say soothingly. I have never been a person to show this much affection, it's different. She instantly starts to calm down by my touch. She notices me being soft and I quickly get up and change my face so it's expressionless.
I clear my throat and say,

"You are not to leave this bed, if you need something call for one of the maids......or me." I mumble the last part to myself.

"Excuse me?!!" She says starting to get mad.

"You heard me." I say coldly.

"First you kidnap me and then say I can't leave! Where am I anyway?! Why didn't you take me back to my apartment?!l" she says angrily. Is she serious? She thinks I was trying to kidnap her??!!

"Well I'm sorry I was busy trying to save your life. For your information I didn't take you back to your apartment because I don't know where you live and your In my penthouse and in my room. You can't leave because the doctor said you can't walk for about 3 days or longer until your leg heals." I explain to her.

"Where's Cora?" She asks. I knew she would want to see her so I told her to stay here for the time being, since Sienna is not going anywhere.

"She's sitting in the living room waiting for you to wake up." I tell her and she instantly relaxes.

"Do you want to see her?" I ask her and she nods her head.

Before I leave I hear her mumble a 'thank you' which instantly puts a smile on my face, which is shocking since I haven't smiled since.. anyway I leave the room and head into one of the living rooms. I see Cora pacing around the room and Aiden trying to calm her down which is new since he never really cares about girls' feelings. When Cora sees me she instantly runs up to me and asks,

"Has she woken up yet?!!!" I nod and say,

"She wants to see you." As soon as I said that she ran to the bedroom.

"So.." I say smirking.

"Shut up!" He says.

"What? You get to make fun out of me and I don't get to make fun out of you. Yeah nah, not gonna happen mate." I say still smirking.

"You like her don't you?" I say wiggling my eyebrows.

"I'm just gonna go now. Bye." He says and walks out and I chuckle. Sienna you're changing me (sigh).

I go to Elise's bedroom and knock on the door.

"Come in!" She shouts.

"Good evening Elise." I say and go to hug her.

"Good evening Xander. What are you doing here?" She asks.

" I was wondering if you could help the girl I bought here to shower and change?" I say rubbing my neck nervously.

"Where is she?"

"She's in my room, she's the one that got shot."

Her eyes immediately shine.

"Your room?!! But you never take anyone in there." She says with pure excitement.

I just nod my head not knowing what to say. She is right, I never take anyone in my room. Even if it's one night stands I take them to a hotel or their house, I've never bought a girl here.

"You like her!!!" She says happily.

"No I don't!" I quickly deny it. I don't like her do I?

"Oh come on. Don't deny it." She says, wiggling her eyebrows.

"Sometimes you're even worse than mom." I say slapping my forehead.

"To answer your question of course I'll help her, and I'll get to see what she's like."
She winks and walks off.

Sometime later ~

Elise walks out of the door with a smile on her face.

"I like her. She's perfect for you but she's really stubborn." She says.

"Tell me about it." I say.

"Hey! You're no better." She says with a scowling face.

"Well I'm going to go make dinner with your mother and make sure to bring Sienna with you." She says and walks away.

I head into the room and see Sienna laying down and staring at the ceiling. I walk to my bathroom and get changed into some joggers and t-shirts. I see a message from my mom saying dinners ready. I walk towards the bed and say,

"Come on dinners ready." She tells me she wants to call her parents so I hand her her phone. I stand there listening to her talk to her parents with so much love and that smile in her face, god I want her always smiling like that. After the phone call she tries to get up but groans in pain. I quickly go to her and pick her up in bridal style, one of my arms are around her waist and the other one under her knees avoiding the stitches.
She fits perfectly in my arms.

"What are you doing?!" She asks, slightly irritated.

"Helping you. What else?!" I ask looking into her beautiful eyes.

"I can walk myself." Of course she's going to say that. All ways trying to be independent, can she not just take the help when given? She tries to get out of my grip but realizes I'm not going to let go.

"So your saying if I put you down right now you won't groan in pain." She stays silent knowing I've won.

"Exactly what I thought." I say.

"Plus I like it more this way." I smirk at her and head downstairs.

When we get downstairs there are a lot of people eating and talking. I place her on a chair and sit next to her. Everyone stops talking and stares at Sienna. She shifts awkwardly in her chair. Suddenly someone squeals and pushes me off of my chair and I groan in pain. Everyone around the room starts to laugh except me, Sienna laughs as well.

"Hi I'm Sophie, this grumpy man's twin." She says pointing towards me and sees he is still groaning in pain. She puts a hand out for her to shake.

"I'm Sienna." She replies while shaking Sophie's hand.

"Did you have to introduce yourself as my twin?" I say getting up from the floor.

"It's the truth so suck it up." She says while rolling her eyes.

I can see my dad watching Sienna's every movement until he say,

"You look really familiar."

His expression immediately changes to anger which I could see scared Sienna

"Your parents are the ones who killed my mother!" He shouted angrily.


My body immediately shook with rage. How dare she betray me!!!!! I'm going to make her and her family pay!!!!!
