Everleigh POVMy knees felt so weak from bending, as I tried to gawk in father's office. As soon as Dad came, Raven immediately bid for excuse and went to him. He was in a rush, his shouts for something. I always look at him in the eye because I'm really fascinated with those."Mr. Scott," I saw Raven scratching the back of his hands.

"W-What?"What? What does he mean he'll do it for me? Everyday?!

Everleigh POVI rolled my eyes for the nth time—360 degrees. For pete's sake!Raven never look at me in the eye, he keeps on treating me with his cold and stern attitude. I felt like a little kid. But what makes me more irritated was his sweet and manly gestures!I heard old man laugh. I looked at him. "Why are you laughing?"He pointed my hands using his mouth. Right I was here putting seeds on flower beds."If you're curious, why not just ask him?" old man dig up some dirt. "He is right, you shouldn't have gone there. What if something bad happened to you? Your father will be sick."I pouted. "He could have just scold me once just like what you did to me. But look at him, treating me like he never heard I said I was sorry. And now he even got out to buy me materials for school. He cooked for me, he cares for me, he watch out for me," my hands started to crumble dirt, "with all his little cold treatment! Is he playing with me?! He is not even looking at me in my eyes!"Old man laugh

Everleigh POVThe class started. Finally, I get to school where I can interact face to face. Homeschooling made so tired mentally. All day you put your eyes on gadgets, and gadgets all day! I'm really bored at home. But for the safety, father initiated this homeschool. I wasn't approving about it, but eventually, I did it. I thought, I guess I have to try. Every night I'll sneak around and visit the bar I'm playing DJ. I miss it. The soug and the vibrations of the songs from the speakers that vibrated inside my chest is so making me excited. I always watch the dance battle competition, in which, it was my fault why they had. I was dancing at the stage with this wild music and a guy approached me—trying to hit me up for the night. But I was drunk and challenge him to do dance battle with me. Crowd step aside and clap their hands with my dance moves. But to my surprise, the guy was also a dancer. I didn't know his name, but we hangout, just chatting about stuffs. He is a good guy aft
Everleigh POVFather came home before weekends, fortunately, I don't have classes for this afternoon. Raven wasn't here, he excused himself and said he has something important to do. I didn't asked him and just let him go. I can't even bare his stern voice like he is mad for something I don't know. He's such a moody person.Anyway,I'm standing at the front door of Dad's office. I breathe in and out to relax myself. I'm just a bit nervous. Jackson is right. I should talk to him. The walls between us, one of us should break it. I'll be the one to dig up a whole. I hope so. I hope he'll listen...I knock three times before entering. I bit my lower lip. I saw father typing on his laptop; knotted eyebrows. He would often pause and type again. "What is it? What do you want?" Dad asked. He stopped encoding and looked at me. He smiled without a single sign of happiness in his eyes."I, uh, just wanted to ask... How's your work?"He leaned on his seat, furrowed eyes; confused. "That's unusu
Raven POVToday is my Mom's death anniversary. I took a day off from my duty. I already pass my paper for request of being Everleigh's regular body guard—24/7. Tomorrow, I'll be on duty all day, all night. I mentally smiled, being on guard with your special woman."I know you can fight, but lay down, stay low key, Clyde," I said before putting my helmet. Clyde was in the hospital, Vince brought him to see if he has more deep injuries, fortunately, none. Clyde was a victim of bullying in school. Though we are all fighters, we don't involve ourselves to normal people. We stay low as possible. Clyde had bruises on his side lips, shoulders, and legs."I know, I know," Clyde said, "I really wanted to smack their asses off a while ago,"Vince put his arms on Clyde's shoulders. "Argh! Vince! I got bruises their!" But Vince didn't listen. Vince smirked. "He is protecting his classmate, a girl classmate,"I smirked. "Uh huh, someone special, I guess—""What?! No!" Clyde push Vince away, "
Everleigh POVI can finally go. The doctor said I'm already fine. Mr. Hunderson told me Jackson will help me here.
