Last night was absolutely amazing, I thought to myself as I stood in the bathroom looking at myself in the mirror. I felt so different but in a good way. I was just about to hop in the shower when I felt his hands on my body again. He kissed my neck, then my shoulder as he whispered in my ear. “Good morning sexy. How are you feeling?” I turned to face him and placed my hands on his chest.
“Amazingly Good. I was just about to take a shower would you like to join me?” I said as I pulled myself up to him so I could kiss him. He picked me up bridal style and placed me on the bathroom counter. He kissed me deeply and with so much passion I would have thought he was telling me goodbye. He pulled away from me, but I wrapped my legs around him so he couldn’t leave.
“Lynn, as much as I want to stay here in this room with you all day, I can’t. I have to go to Mike’s and discuss our plan for taking down Joseph so you can be safe.”
I pouted a little bit, but he quickly brought his lips to mine and kissed me again. I let my legs fall and he stepped away from me again. “I promise I won’t be long.” He said as he left me in the bathroom alone. Damn it, I was head over heels already. He was frustrating, but last night I saw a whole new side of him. I just hope that I live long enough to see more of it. I shook the thought from my head and got off the counter and turned the shower on. I turned my iPod on and pressed the shuffle button. I got in the shower and stood there letting the hot water run over my body. I started to wash and sing to myself as my favorite song came on. I was about halfway through the song when the music stopped all of a sudden. I didn’t really think anything of it, maybe I forgot to charge the iPod and it died.
I got out of the shower and started to dry off. It was still steamy as I took the towel and wrapped it around my hair and then put on my shorts and tank top I had grabbed. I looked down at my iPod and saw that it was fully charged, but somehow it was on pause. ‘Weird’ I thought to myself as I looked up at the mirror. That’s when I saw the writing.
“Back off bitch. He is mine.”
What the fuck I started to turn around when someone grabbed me from behind and pushed me to the bedroom floor. I quickly rolled over to look at my assailant and was a little shocked at who I saw standing there. Standing above me was that stupid whore Aliyah or whatever the fuck her name was.
She looked down at me, her eyes looked crazed as she started to come at me she yelled. “You stupid bitch Jensen is mine. He just doesn’t realize it yet.” I quickly rolled out of the way then swiped my leg under hers taking her to the ground. I may act innocent, but I was raised by a gang leader and he taught me how to protect myself. As she hit the ground she screamed out in frustration and then I was on top of her. I could hear her mumbling something as I started to pound her face. I felt the crack of her nose and saw her eyes go wide. She was able to throw me off of her and stood up quickly as I did the same. “Bitch, you broke my nose.” I stood ready to fight as I smirked at her.
“Honey, your lucky that is all I broke. Come at me again and see what happens.” Her eyes flashed red and she came charging at me.
How this hippo was even charging at me in those heels I don’t know, but I do know that I was done playing with her. I sidestepped out of the way which made her stumble into the dresser. She cursed out loud as the lamp fell to the ground smashing in a million pieces. I kept my eyes on her as she turned to face me with pure rage in her eyes, this bitch was crazy. “Jensen obviously didn’t make it clear enough for you when he dragged your bitch ass out of the house the last time you were here. So let me help you out, HE DOESN’T WANT YOU!” I hissed at her with a smile on my face. She came running at me again, but this time she was able to land a good slap across my face. I could taste the blood as it dropped from my lip and that, for some reason set me off. I grabbed her by the hair and tossed her to the ground. I don’t remember much after that until Jacob pulled me off of her.
When I looked down at her she was a complete mess. I looked at my hands and clothes and they were covered in blood. Dillion ran past Jacob and me as I started to realize that I might have just killed someone. “She is alive. Boss is not going to be happy about this.” Dillion said as he picked Aliyah’s lifeless body up in his arms. I don’t know why, but that was extremely funny to me. I started to laugh uncontrollably and Jacob and Dillion both stood there looking at me like I was crazy, maybe I was. Dillion finally just shrugged his shoulders and pushed past us with Aliyah in his arms. I was finally able to stop laughing and looked at Jacob, who did not look amused.
“What happened Lynn?” I shrugged.
“I don’t know. I was in the shower, then when I got out she was there. She kept saying that Jensen was hers and some shit about how I was a whore. She came at me first. I don’t remember much until you pulled me off of her.” He smiled at me.
“Well, at least you can handle your own against a crazy bitch. I have to call Jensen, he is not going to like this. I just can’t figure out how she got in here.” I shrugged at him and then asked him to leave so I could clean up. I was wondering how she had got in here too.
“Look, Jensen, I think the best thing to do is use Lynn as bait. You will call Joseph and tell him that you have her and arrange for a drop-off. We will all be there and be ready for him.” I listened to Mike trying to pitch this ridiculous idea and I couldn’t believe he was actually willing to risk her life.
“There has to be another way, Mike. She already ran once because she thought I was going to turn her over to him. I don’t want her to run again.” Mike shook his head.
“If you explain it to her maybe she will understand. Jensen, there is no other way and we are out of time.” I knew he was right, but it didn’t make it any easier. I sighed and stood up.
“Fine Mike, we will do it your way. I swear to god if she gets hurt I will have your head, Mike.” Mike stared at me in disbelief.
“Have you caught feelings for her Jensen? I thought that no woman would catch your heart again.”
I tried to shrug it off. “I don’t know what it is right now. I just know that I won’t let anything happen to her. Even if it means I die to protect her.” Mike started to say something as my phone went off. I stopped Mike. “I have to get this.” He nodded and sat quietly as I answered the phone. “Jacob, what’s going on?” I heard him trying to control a laugh. What was so funny I thought to myself.
“You might want to get back to the house boss. Aliyah got in here somehow and attacked Lynn.” Before he could finish I lost all control.
“What? How the hell did she even get in? Are you fuckers sleeping on the job over there?” Jacob just sat listening to me and then finally spoke up when I stopped.
“Boss, Lynn is fine just a busted lip. Aliyah, however, is barely alive. Lynn kicked the shit out of her. I am already checking cameras and trying to figure out how she even got in.”
I sighed a sigh of relief and tried to regain my composure. “You do that. I will be back in about ten minutes.” I hung up and turned to Mike who was listening intently to my conversation.
“Everything okay buddy.” I laughed a little.
“Nope. I think I may have a crazy bitch on my hands.” His eyebrows raised a little in curiosity. I started to walk out the door but turned back to him. “Lynn just beat the shit out of some whore that thought I was hers. Like I said I have a crazy bitch, and I love it.” I flashed my once famous half-cocked smile at him and then left the room as I heard him laughing his ass off. I shook my head as I left the house and hopped on my bike and headed back to the house. What was I going to do with this woman? I was glad that she could handle her own, but why was she forced to protect herself?
I sped towards the house and up the driveway. I parked the bike and stormed into the house. “Where the fuck is she? If she isn’t dead yet she will be.” Dillion looked at me then pointed down to the basement.
“I have her handcuffed downstairs for now. To be honest she might not make it through the night if we don’t get her looked at.” I spit at the ground in front of me.
“Let that bitch die. She crossed me and I warned her what would happen. In fact, just put her out of her misery and then get rid of the body.” Dillion nodded and started to head down to the basement when I yelled. “How in the fuck did Aliyah even get in her? Have we figured that out?” Jacob came around the corner.
“Yeah, I can answer that. Come with me boss, I would rather show you.” I nodded and followed Jacob to the attic of the house, which I didn’t even know anyone could access. We went up a ladder in the back of the closet of an empty room. Once in the attic, Jacob pointed to the corner. In the corner, there was a dirty mattress, some sheets, and a blanket. There was also food and water and Aliyah’s clothes. This bitch had actually been hiding in the attic.
“How long has she been here?”
Jacob sighed in frustration. “I think she has been here since the night you kicked her out. I was watching the surveillance video and saw her sneak back in. Jensen, she would literally wait for everyone to go to bed or be gone and just go around the house doing as she pleased. She even would stand in your room and Lynn’s and watch you sleep. She was bat shit crazy boss.” I walked over to the mattress and started looking around at the things that were lying about. Out of the corner of my eye, I saw one of my shirts. That bitch still got one of my shirts. I grabbed it up and told Jacob to clean this shit up. I went back down the stairs of the attic then stopped at the bottom and shouted back up to Jacob.
“I want this attic sealed off. Make sure no one can get in here ever again.” I heard a muffled yes and then went to check on Lynn.
I looked in her room and didn’t see her. I didn’t have to wonder where she was. I walked straight to my room and found her asleep on my bed. She looked so peaceful. I took my shirt off and climbed in next to her. I let my fingers caress her lip that was busted open and got a little angry. She stirred and opened her eyes. “Hey.” She said smiling at me.
“I see you have had an eventful morning. I am sorry about that Lynn.” She laughed at me.
“What are you sorry for? She was cray-cray. You didn’t know that. I assume it has been handled.” I nodded at her and then kissed her lips gently. She winced a little as I touched her lips, but she didn’t stop me. I continued the kiss as I let my hands drift down to her breast. She moaned into my mouth as I started to rub and massage her nipples. Just as things were starting to get heated my phone went off again. I wanted to ignore it, but it wouldn’t stop.
“Hold on a sec Lynn, let me shut my phone off.” She smiled and pulled away so that I could get my phone. I picked it up ready to turn it off when I saw a message from Joseph. Shit. I opened the text and had to look at it twice. It was a picture of Lynn and it was taken right now. The message read.
"I know you have what is mine. Now bring her to me. Your time has been cut short."
I felt the color drain from my face as I looked at the message over and over again.
