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.
Emily was in an unusually happy mood, I didn't want to make her upset. Pushing my sadness down I smiled at her.
" look look" Emily yelled whilst clapping her hands together,
" avvy Patrick fellll"
" he did, loook the jellyfish are there" I mumbled happily, distracting myself from the shitty feelings.
She was so distracted by the tv I decided to get dinner ready.
" Emily, dinner time"
I couldn't be asked cooking so I warmed up last nights dinner and placed it on the table. She didn't wait a second before gobbling the food down.
" calm down baby's your gonna end up choking like last time"
" sorry Avvy" she started to calm down.
Half way through the episode the doorbell rang causing me to jump, Emily ignored the sound and carried on watching the show, she was barely hanging on anyways. Her eyes fluttering every few seconds.
Might be Dixie, I think Emily left her coat there. Or it could be Girl Scouts. Fucking hope not. Can't stand the go lucky attitude and fake cheesy smiles. Makes me sick.
I wish I had a peephole right about now, pulling the door open I placed my hand on my hip ready to give attitude to any cookie girls.
I'd rather have the cookie girls, it's James. He stood in front of me with a small frown gracing his face, his usual tan missing instead he's pale and weirdly looking sad. Pushing my feelings away I tried to slam the door but failed as he put his foot in front stopping me from doing so.
" leave" I asked politely, looking at me with a blankly he entered the house uninvited. Emily didn't even glance his way cause of spongebob, he looked at her sadly before turning back to me.
" I'm sorry" he muttered in a low voice, a slight gasp escaped my lips. I fully didn't expect him to apologise, stepping back I crossed my arms below my chest and frowned.
" what" I whispered unsure of what I heard was true.
" I said I'm sorry Ava I was....... in a bad mood" he said as he grabbed my shoulders in a firm hold, that still doesn't mean he could do that. Am I a dickhead
A/N: if your British you should understand 😂😂
" just because your in a mood doesn't mean you could take it out on me" I snarled, James let go of my shoulders and ran a hand through his lucious hair
" I'm sorry Ava.....please" his voice seemed like it was gonna crack, fudgeeee. His beautiful eyes haven't left mine causing me to become speachless. What I wanted to say wouldn't come out, I wanted to scream, punch, kick and hurt him.
My body wouldn't let me.
Pulling on my hair I squeezed my eyes shut, ok Ava.....just let it go. I might not even be here for long so it's ok. It's ok. He will stop caring soon as well, everything's gonna be ok don't make it difficult for yourself.
" Fine, but please don't let it happen again. I'm tired" I don't usually forgive anyone but for some odd reason I couldn't say no.
A massive smile appeared on his face as he heard my words, pulling his hands away from his hair he pulled me into a bear hug.
James stepped away and smiled, gently smiling back I turned back to Emily. Both of us ambled towards the sofa, James awed in the cutest way possible as he saw Em. He gently picked her up.
Thinking he was going to sit down I went to go get dinner but instead he walked towards the bedrooms.
"James what are you doing" I whisper yelled at his retreating form, "putting her to bed" he mumbled with the same volume.
Quickly cleaning the living room I went back to my room expecting to see James and Emily.
Glancing at my bed my eyes did a double take.
" where's Emily" I asked curiously, James flipped onto his stomach and pulled the covers over his naked back, damn. He mumbled her bed before patting the space beside him.
No Ava don't.
Grabbing my nighty I slowly and quietly walked towards the door, he's already asleep. Shaking my head at his snoring form I left the room.
This is all happening to fast, I'm usually one to stop things going further then to a hi and bye relationship so how have I gotten so close to this man in such a short period of time.
Someone please tell me.
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.
I woke up on top of a hard yet soft rock, oh wait it's James. Snuggling deeper I sniffed him by accident. Honestly he smells so fucking good all the time. I was too busy in my sniffing moment that I didn't feel his body shuffle under mine. Oh shit, he probably thinks I'm a weird sniffer person." good morning avyy" he sighed, I internally smiled at his beautiful morning voice, mumbling a morning I stayed laying on his chest comfortably until his phone rang.
James povI woke up with the feeling of guilt floating in my stomach, maybe it's because I know I have to tell Ava that Im going to kill her father.I need her help to do it.
I woke up to an empty bed,I almost started to scream when I realised James definitely had her, it's hard to get used to this. Slowly crawling out of bed I fixed my clothes before walking towards the living room.James sat feeding Emily pancakes, the amount of happiness shining on his face in this moment is slightly unbelievable. Aiden and Connor would not believe the sight in front of them.
