It’s been over a week since Logan and I arrived at the beach house his friend Collin set up for us. It had taken us over a day to get here. Granted Logan drove straight through. Collin has been over twice now since we arrived and he and Logan do all their talking away from me. I know that Logan has been doing his best to avoid me. It makes me so angry. I have tried a few times now to talk to him about everything that has happened, but all Logan does is push me away.
Logan has explained to me how my family can’t be found and now this Mcgregger guy wants me. Logan has sworn he won’t give me over without a fight. So now that Logan has abandoned his job he is just as much in danger as I am. Now Logan is on the hunt for my family so he can get me home. At least that’s what he has been telling me. The only problem I have now is that I don’t want to be away from him, but all he does is push me away. I know I’m not very experienced when it comes to a man, and Logan Heart is definitely a man. The way he touched me, the way he kissed me. You can’t just fake that shit. I know I mean something to him.
Because Logan does his best to keep away. I spend most of my days down by the ocean. Logan knows I won’t run. Only because, now I have nothing to run to. Where the hell would I go? Would I even live long enough to find out? I needed Logan now and that was no question in my head. There was no way I would run. I never knew my life was going to take such a huge turn and I would be fighting for my life. I sat in the sand and watched the water run over my feet. I loved the ocean and was glad this was where we were hiding out. I just didn’t know how long it would last. I knew eventually we would have to run again. What I didn’t know was for how long.
“Logan?” I said that evening while sitting on the couch watching a movie. He looked up at me. “I think I would like for you to teach me how to shoot a gun.” It was almost funny to see his face drop as it did.
“What? Why?” He asked.
“Don’t you think it would be smart for me to at least know how to work one? What if something happened and you needed me. What good would I be to you?”
“There is no fucking way you’re messing with a gun. What if you hurt yourself? Besides I would never let them get that close to you.” I stood up and walked over to him. He looked up at me.
“Why?” He just looked at me. I reached out and touched his hand. He didn’t move away from me. “Why do you care so much about me? Why are you choosing to put yourself at risk just for me?” I watched him sigh. he moved his hand away from me and stood up just to back up away from me.
“I’m not a killer Mia, don’t try to make this out to be something that it’s not.” He then turned his back on me.
“You know what Logan. Fuck you!” I spit out. He stopped and turned to look at me.
“Fine, fuck me, but you need to learn something little girl. This world doesn’t revolve on you. So we kissed, get over it.” I could feel my anger building up, but the sadness washed over me and took over.
“I hate you,” I said and took off out of the room. I opened the bedroom door and before I slammed it shut. I yelled out one more time. “I hate you Logan Heart!”
I hated that she was hating me, I wanted nothing about her to hate me, but I had to keep her at bay. I needed her to hate me so when this was all over. She would walk away from me, and I could walk away from her. Everything I have told her about what was going on had been the truth. Her family was nowhere to be found and that only made McGregger even more pissed off. He wanted Mia, so he could make an example out of her in the worse way. Now he knew that I was protecting her instead of handing her over he would make an example out of me as well. Collin has been coming here and actually helping us. He told me everything he knew that was going on. When the guys showed up at my home and found us gone. They set my house on fire. We had gotten out just in time.
Once I had found out that they were coming for her. I knew just what would have happened to her if James had gotten his filthy hands on her. That made my blood boil. Having to keep myself away from her was killing me. She had been showing me her stronger side. She'd also been doing her best to get my attention. It has taken everything in me not to take her and make her mine. Especially when she gets sassy and angry. She is a very beautiful and innocent woman. I just can’t corrupt her. My world is nothing for her. It would never work between us. I sighed and pulled out my phone, wondering when Collin would be back with supplies. I was pretty sure Mia would be in her room for the rest of the night.
There were no leads on where the hell her father was hiding her family. The big piece of shit just went into hiding without finding his daughter first. I wanted to kill him myself. I hated to see Mia cry about her family, but this was opening her eyes to the truth, and she deserved to know the truth. I got up and made a small dinner and took a deep breath as I took the food to Mia. I knocked on the door and waited for her to say something. When she didn’t I opened her door to find her sitting on her bed reading. She didn’t even look up at me when I sat the food in front of her. I turned to leave. “I’m sorry.” I heard her say. I stopped and turned to face her.
“I’m sorry too, princess. I don’t mean to act this way, but it’s better off if I leave you be.”
“Because I’m a bad man, and my life is no life for you.”
“So you’re telling me that if you were a better man. You would want me?” I had to laugh at her remark.
“Baby, I want you now.” I don’t know why I said that, but it just came out.
“I don’t think your a bad man Logan. Look what you’re doing for me.”
“You wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for me.”
“Or I would be worse off without you.” It was true, this job would have happened with or without me, and if James had her god only knows where she would be right now. I watched as she moved the plate to the nightstand and got off of the bed and made her way closer to me. “Logan, I may not be the most experienced woman out there, but what I do know is I see you for who you really are, and I just don’t see a bad guy.” I looked in her eyes as she was right next to me saying things that were just not true. I couldn’t help but wonder why she was feeling anything for me other than hate. I was not worthy of her and I knew this. I reached out and touched her soft face. The way she closed her eyes and purred against my touch drove me crazy.
“I don’t want to ruin you,” I said and she moved herself closer to me. I watched her in slow motion as she reached out to touch me. I knew she was being cautious, waiting for me to stop her.
“I have never been touched by a man.” My face snapped at her and I knew she was innocent, but I had no idea she was a virgin. I mean how many eighteen-year-old women are virgins any more? “I want you to touch me.” I was floored, she has been holding onto her innocents and she wants me to be the one to touch her. I should have run out of the room and locked her in, but my pride was full of happiness knowing this beautiful woman wanted me. Her hands were now on my hips and she was right in front of me.
My will power flew right out the window when I took a hold of her neck and brought her lips to mine. She always smelt of strawberries and vanilla. She was hard to resist and now she was mine.
