James drove us to school today, I didn't feel like walking at alllll.
We reached school slightly early, the car ride was filled with James chatting about the weirdest things in the world and me playing along. It's been quite a while that I've been able to relax.
It's worse than yesterday, everyone is gob smacked at the fact that we got out of the same car. I mean for the boys who apparently don't speak much it's nice to know I'm special enough to earn their speech.
James turned to me with an arched brow, a small smile plastered on his face.
" we turn heads" he mumbled.
" I turn heads, your just arm candy" I smirked, ego crusher has arrived.
" sexy arm candy" he tried to reason, scrunching my lips together I sighed in fake annoyance.
" whatever you say sir"
The day went by really slowly. In maths I was dying, in English I was dying and in science I was dead. I kinda regret coming back to these so called schools.
The only part of the day I slightly enjoyed was lunch, James Aiden and Connor sat with me again at lunch. I liked it, I rarely like human connections but here I am having 3 of them.
Also I think Barbie has planned my death. Throughout the whole day she glared at me any time she could. Closing my locker, she glared. Walking, she glared. Even when I answered a question she GLARED. The women really does hate me.
Enemy no. 3
When the day finally ended I grabbed my shit and literally jogged home. I'm still not used to leaving Emily alone, the jitters randomly attack me throughout the day making me feel like somethings wrong.
I think Dixie has gotten sick of me texting every hour I thought with a smile, she's a queen.
Dixie was outside with Emily standing by her side, autumn leaves hanging of parts of her long blonde hair.
" we just got back from the museum " Dixie smiled as soon as she saw me by the building.
" how was it, was Emily bad" I said sternly, the humour taking over as she clapped her hands.
" she was perfect as always" Dixie cooed grabbing her cheeks and squeezing, princess wins every bodies hearts.
" Avy leaves and chicken and a big big dinashourr" she exaggerated.
" next time I'll take you to see the flying monsters, now say bye to aunt Dixie" Emily hugged onto her leg before screaming a bye. I did the same without screaming and took Emily's tiny hand in mine.
Emily changed as I started to make lasagne, her favourite meal. A few minutes of starting the preperations a knock sounded through the apartment.
Glancing at the sofa I sighed to see Emily already changed into her nighty very much engrossed in the pigs that ran around on the tv.
Wiping my hand on a towel I ran to the door hurriedly opening it, don't want to delay dinner I'm starving. Literally as soon as I pulled open the old wooden door James Aiden and Connor came flying passed me like I wasn't even there.
I was shocked for a good minute.
" guys what the hell" I yelled slamming the door shut, they all looked at me with the same expression, amusement and I couldn't help but smile a little.
"Oh hey Ava we didn't see you there" Connor said happily, slapping their heads I shook mine in annoyance.
" what are you guys doing here" I asked as I jumped onto the sofa beside Connor, he put his arm around me and smiled.
"well Avyy we came to say hi" Aiden chuckled and switched the channel, standing still I waited for Em to scream for them to put peppa pig back on but weirdly she was too attached to James' chest.
"I'm hungwy" Emily squealed as James started to tickle her stomach, looks like I should get back to dinner for 5 now.
" might as-well stay, dinners getting ready now idiots"
After dinner I cleaned up as the boys sat and watched frozen with Emily, yes she managed to puppy dog her way to watching it. Funnily enough the boys seemed a lot more interested in it than her.
As the clock hit nine I stood up
"James give Emily she needs to sleep" I yawned as I reached down to pick her up, he yawned too and then walked towards my room; is he deaf!!
Ignoring the deaf man in the back I glanced at Jake and Aiden on my old dirty sofa, they're still staring at the tv distracted by Elsa making magical ice. Babies.
" boys up and out" I screamed at them, they jumped in shock before glaring at me. Love annoying people me.
"really Ava couldn't you just ask us to leave nicely" Connor questioned as he started to put his coat on, I smiled at them nodding my head no vigorously.
" bye see you idiots tomorrow" I waved and locked the door behind them.
Before I could even sigh in peace my mind went back to the other idiot. Jogging to my room ready to drag him by his ears out of my apartment my eyes caught sight
James sprawled on my covers.
Sluggishly I walked to my bed and nudged the sleeping beauty.
" Jamesssss" I whispered, he mumbled incoherent words into the pillow yanking on my arm at the same time. A squeal left my parted lips. I hate being surprised.
" sleep Avyy" he whispered, this time I wasn't going to, pulling his arm of me I tried to nudge him again.
" James get up now" I whisper yelled afraid to wake Emily. There was no reaction, for a good minute I thought he was dead. Like DEAD DEAD but then his light snores echoed through the room.
Oh ffs. With a scowl plastered on my face I pushed his arm away and got under the covers.
A few minutes later I felt his arm pull me closer, he nuzzled his face into my neck, I could feel him smiling at the action. I bet the idiot could feel my heartbeat skyrocketing. I think I might just have a heart attack at this point.
God take me please.
I woke up to a firm grip on my waist, his warm breath tickled my ear causing butterflies to erupt in my stomach. Damn it why's he doing this to me, slowly jiggling around I got out of his grip and ran to the bathroom. I gotta pee so bad I swear if he didn't let me go I would've peed right there.I need a damn shower, who else wakes up in the morning sweating buckets, it's not just me. Dropping my clothes I took a 5 minute shower. Emily usually wakes up around this time.
"James get your fat ass out of the shower we are going to be late" I screamed through the corridor, I've made breakfast and even cleaned everything up yet his ass is still showering.I swear I thought it's women who take longer to shower yet this man has been in there for a good hour." chill out chicken"
Dixie could tell I was in a bad mood, she handed me Em with a small smile.I changed Emily and I into our nighties before sitting on the bed, she sat beside me mumbling weird words. Usually I would concentrate on her but today my mind isn't letting me.... He pissed me of and I let him. I didn't even do anything.Emil
Morning came around pretty quickly, with a quick morning stretch I cleared the sofa of the blankets and went back to my room. My bare feet padded against the cold wood making me shiver.With a yawn I gently opened my door to see James laying so still you'd think he was dead, the blanket covered half his body leaving the rest out to be seen....by me cause he's sexy.
James pov FINALLY " I'm a gangleader" I mumbled quietly, I was afraid of this, of her being afraid of me. I finally got the courage to look back up and all I saw in her eyes was worry." James" she whispered looking at her feet and then back up at me. I could see fear in her eyes, pure fear. Well fucking done James you've scared her away." I can't" was all she said before she left the room taking my rotten black heart with her....... Shit I sound like a bitch now. She didn't even listen for the whole story.She doesn't know why I'm here, she doesn't know what I've been through or what I've had to deal with.I can't fucking let her walk away from me like that, not many people make me feel. Ava's pov Shit. He's a gangleader How could I not see this coming. Nothing ever goes right for me I should have fucking expected it. I have to take Emily and leave fast. I'm not risking anything if they find us this time we're going to die, don't get me wrong I don't care about my life whatsoev
I stared into his bluish orbs trying my best to force the words out of my mouth. They wouldn't come out. James gently held my hand rubbing them to make me feel better. " I...I was abused" I whispered slightly turning my head so I don't have to look into his disgusted eyes. Taking in another deep breath I started with the full story. " I was abused every day by my parents, I kept Emily safe by hiding her they forget she even existed" I laughed with no humor present in my voice, wiping away the falling tears I kept my eyes glued to the floor." one day I decided to escape, so we ran, I stole money from my dads safe, he had millions but I only took a few thousand, yes I was a bit stupid. We ran here to start fresh" I'm not even near finished, he hasn't even heard the most important part but he interrupted me." I'm so sorry Ava" he said as he pulled me in for a hug, " but why did you run, you know I can protect you" he whispered huskily into my ears, I looked up at him and wiped the
We had been in the penthouse for a few hours and James had been in his room since he showed us around. He said he had some business to take care of, I tried not to dwell on the word business to much.The clock hit 9pm, Emily and I were busy watching spongebob whist James was still stuck in his room. I should probably go check what he's doing. Slowly pulling away from Emily I nervously walked towards his door and knocked three times. After a few seconds I heard a 'come in'.
After I put Emily to bed I walked into the room opposite. The walls were black and white and so are the bed covers, there's 2 other doors which I'm guessing lead to a closet and a bathroom. Like his office there was again nothing sentimental or anything that reflected a home.This penthouse feels like a pretty prison.
