(Sharian Roden POV)
"Burn the store down !!!" I shouted at the Stygian members.
"Have mercy Madam, don't! Please." The owner of the store I'm going to burn down. He hugged my legs.
"I've been holding you back for a long time. You don't pay, right? We won't be blessed with anything right from you. We should burn down your shop than for us to go back and collect the little you gave!" I kicked him.
"TSK, burn that away. Everything." I said and the car returned.
As the sister of the esteemed gangster Young lord Stan Elthen Indelcio, leader of the Stygian Beasts the most powerful group here in Cordova City, I have nothing to fear from anyone.
At least one, not because of my brother Stan but because I’m not afraid to die, so I’m not afraid of anything.
Stygian are doing their best to get numbers, also because the rival Rubicund is growing and getting stronger, so we need big money to supply everything that each group needs.
The more members, the greater, but the cost is also large.
As a fundraiser, I need to be more rigorous and more persistent in raising money.
I need to go home because I still have work tomorrow.
"Clai, come on!" I called Clai who was busy texting.
He is always with me on such walks.
He just nodded and went to the other member.
I've wanted Clai for a long time but what he wants is my adopted sister Zaneah.
Tsss what did he like about that stupid woman? I will never really like that Zaneah because she has already grabbed the attention of my older brother Stan, the love of my youngest sister Kezen, she is still the heir to the Stygians crown, and most of all she is what Clai wants. She is annoying.
"Come on!" Clai said and started the car.
We drove home.
The other Stygians just followed.
We just kept quiet as we made our way home.
(5 Months Later)
“Roden, I hear you’re scattering in Cordova!” Stan said, I was inside his office.
"What's spreading? I'm cleaning it!" I said and sat down.
"How's the fund?"
"I'm close to reaching the quota, don't worry, by the end of the month my collected budget is complete," I said insuring him.
"I'll expect that."
"All right. I have to go to school."
"You take care. I'll go next"
"I will," I said leaving his office.
"Let's go Clai," I called Clai who was reading the newspaper. Wearing C.U. uniform. The uniform and his looks were so tempting.
"Come on ...what are you and Stan talking about?" He asked and stood up.
I walked out the door.
"It's okay, we're okay, we're about to reach the budget for the new hide-outs to be built and the new weapons that need to be bought. Just a little shaking." I said and got in the car.
Clai also took a ride and drove to Crown University. The other Stygians followed with us.
On the way, we will meet many fancy cars.
“Hmp these guys look rich.”
"It looks like that. Familiar to me is the brand of their cars." R "with a gold belt." Clai said.
“You hit them."
"I said hit that car!" I pointed Clai at the oncoming car.
"But why? "
I pulled Clai's arm to collide with the long car.
Everyone stopped and got out of the car and the Stygian with us.
I went down as well.
It looks like they are just butlers.
I looked at the newly opened car and a very handsome and tall man came down from there. He is young, maybe 18 or 19 years old. And next four more cute boys came down to him.
He is Zaki Delrama. Step-brother of Dylan Delrama who is Zaneah’s protector. Zaki just transferred to C.U. and was immediately included in the Icon Class. I don't know this man very well yet. I only go to school once in a lifetime. Furthermore, I heard that Ian Mercado of Rubicund was his childhood younger friend.
He looked at me. He looked strange even though there was no reaction on his face.
"What now?" Clai whispered.
I approached the handsome man.
“You pay,” I said bluntly.
He just looked at me.
For the first time, I shrank myself because of the man's stare.
"Sure." He said and motioned to his staff.
He is so easy. I can't believe it. So manly but so naive. What a fool.
"But Zak, they ran into us!" A man complained to Zaki.
"Shut up Scott. Give me the money." Zaki said without even taking his eyes off me.
“1 million,” I said lifting a brow.
Zaki handed me a case he received from his staff.
I smiled at him before returning to our car.
“Let's go,” I said to Clai as we entered the car.
We passed Zaki's cars.
“TSS you’re weird. Amazing!” Clai praises.
“Rich really, easy to intimidate.” I boast.
But what I saw in Zaki's eyes didn't look scary.
His gaze seemed strange.
We were in front of three large 6th feet buildings. I just reached the top part of Cordova City.
I hear all businesses in this part of Cordova are legal. Furthermore, I don't care, I have to reach my quota and give it to Stan.
"You have no right to collect here. Our business here is legal and licensed." The woman shouted at me.
Maybe she is the manager of these establishments.
"I don't care. All I want is for you to give to us what we need, and we're leaving!"
“No way!” She replied.
The woman is really tough huh?
"Is that so.? .... Stygians, polish these buildings!" I ordered the Stygians and left the woman and some staff of that entertainment building stunned.
I got in the car and watched that building collapse. Furthermore, I smiled.
Who is the owner of those buildings? I don't give a damn.
(5 days later)
"So, what's the news?" Stan asked me.
"Well, it's close to the quota. Just a little."
"Looks like you broke more than you collected."
"That's right. The weak should be exterminated, the poor should be erased!" I stressed.
"You're different from Zaneah."
"I know. And I'm not going to be like her because I'm an Indelcio. A true Indelcio unlike her a bastard!"
"Shut up, Roden."
"Why? Shouldn't she know the truth? TSS if you don't have anything to say, I'm leaving. I can give you what you ask for after this month!" I said and left Stan's office.
Took the bag and walked out of the house driving into C. U.
I think Clai and the others were already there.
I pulled my car out of the gate. Get down to close the gate.
I open the door. I was on my knees when someone stabbed me in the shoulder and got me in my car.
Not only that, but I even saw the men get in my car and drive it before it all got dark.
I woke up tired on a bench.
I slowly lifted my face and my eyes widened as I saw who was in front of me.
"You look surprised, you can't speak. Did you think that you could escape, and I would just let you go after you powdered my buildings?" He said.
"You sure a difficult lilgirl to tame huh." He approached me and pushed my forehead, so I looked up.
"You want money, right? Look!" He pointed to the money in the cases.
"It's all up to you. Plus I'll support the Stygian." He said.
"Why ... why would you do that?"
"I want you."
“Are you crazy already?” I laughed at what he said.
He wore me a bracelet stamped “Z’s”. Means Zaki's. This person is crazy.
“Who wants to be your possession you freak!” I shouted.
"This is the proof that you belong to me, Roden. Do you know this?" He said high up a blue liquid.
"This is what was injected into you earlier. It will gradually destroy your system. So if you still want to live, kneel in front of me, and in return, I'll give you the antidote."
“Insane!” I gasped. Who does he think he is?
He untied me and sat down in front of me.
He looks serious.
"Get on your knees, Roden!"
No way !!
We just stared.
For the first time in my life, I was scared to death.
I will not kneel.
I was shocked when he injected me again.
"From today, onwards, your freedom belongs to me. Your life is mine now. You are my pet who does what your master wants you to do!"
My eyes widened when he pulled me and crushed me with a kiss.
What's going on ?! I don't want to be this guy's possession! There's no way
(Sharian Roden POV) "Ugh. Ugh. Stop. Zaki." I looked at Zaki when he laid me down and lifted my legs. It's been 3 times already, but he's still not done. Blood all over the bed. There were a lot of his bite marks all over my body. He is a very bad person. He is an alien. Freak, beast, demon! "Can tell by looking, that gangsters like you would have such a beautiful body." He said and pushed my shoulder. "Stop already. I can't anymore!" "Not yet. You have to get used to it, sweetheart." He said and enters me again. Damn! I never thought that my first time would be this painful and with this devil Zaki Delrama. It hurts too much, but I still won't kneel with him. No way. "No more. Zaki. No ... More!" It stopped and looked at me. "Listen, Roden, never in my life will I ever forgive what you did. Do you know what I did to the people who were against me? I killed them." He said lifting my face.
(Sharian Roden POV) <Friday> "Clai, do you have a walk tonight?" I asked Clai, and he didn't seem to hear me. We are inside the IC room. "Hey! What? I'm asking you!" I said grabbed the book he was reading. "Aist, can you please don't disturb me first? The novel is so good that I'm reading it day and night." Clai said grabbing the book again. "Ugh what so great about that novel?" "The woman as the protagonist in this story is my ideal girl. Sweet, modest, and cute, that you will do everything to protect her." Clai said and sit straight. "TSK, if you're looking for that kind of woman, you should be enrolled at Williams University and not here at Crown University. Almost all the women here are gangsters and can protect themselves. A girl like that in the novel doesn't exist in this kind of place. "I said and stood up. “Do you know why I prefer women who are modest and kind?” Clai said placing his foot on the
(Roden POV) Earlier I was rolling like tires in my bed. 5 am and I still can't sleep because of the anger in my heart. Tired and reluctant to get up. Maybe the poison is already affecting. While I was worried about the possible effect of the poison on me, maybe that useless Zaki was now so overjoyed. I wish he'll die soon! That idiot! Wait, why don't I try to get a doctor? Maybe that freak is just fooling me around. That is possible because that person is still abnormally stupid. It's annoying because I can't get his serious face and eyes out of my mind. = You belong to me Roden, now and forever. I won't let you leave my side. You must stay beside me until I get tired of you, or else I will wipe all the Stygian here in Cordova City without leaving any single trace of them! = He was mad, his courage to say those things. He is an alien, a demon. Why am I acting like this? It's the freak's fault. I feel like I can’t do any
(Sharian Roden POV) "Here, take this for the reservation. The place is top-near the hidden arena, for you to see as clearly as we fight." Zaki said handing me a blue card with Z. Delrama written on it. "Did I tell you I'm going to watch? I won't go watch! You know you've been interfering too much. How long will I have to pay for my sin with you?" I replied, not accepting the card, and sat in the chair I saw in front of him. "You immediately forgot everything I told you. You're mine! So even if you don't want to or if you want to, you'll watch. You must watch, you are our stake, right?" He throws the card at me. I want to break the neck of this bastard!. He was holding my life. It's hard to escape from him. "Fine, I'll watch but tell me about that event first," I asked taking the card. Zaki stood up, took off his coat, and sipped wine. &nbs
(Zaki POV) "What are you doing Zak?! Choosing a fighter carefree! I know how important this hotel is to you, but why did you choose Roden to fight for you? You know I'm better than her why didn't you choose me, huh?" Aileen yelled at me. Aileen has been working with our family for a long time. We are just the same age and have trained to fight together from childhood until now. Aileen was dad’s fighter, and she was a fighter earlier than me. Behind the Rapture Hotel class is the boring customs. "Shut up Aileen. I know what I'm doing." "Stupid, it's the end of your ownership when Roden loses, I have a strong feeling that she will lose. Do you understand? Because when she loses the ownership will be taken away from you and the ownership will go to Clarence. I can't believe you're being stupid." Aileen shouted. "Oh please shut
(Roden POV) I was walking down the hallway to the Icon Room when someone suddenly grabbed my arm. Turning around, Clai's face opened up to me with an unreadable expression. "Why did you agree to be Delrama's fighter?" He asked and tightened his grip on my arm. "Oh? So you know now? Why? Are you afraid of me?" I raised an eyebrow at him. "What's between you two?" I remember what Zaki and I were like. I'm Zaki's possession, even though I don't want to admit it I still feel that he's holding me. "Argh, the hell, who the hell cares what's between us anyway?" "What is this?" He said he was holding the bracelet given by Zaki with the ZAKI's logo." What's going on?" "You don't have to know. One more thing, you're probably not afraid to lose so why are you asking questions?" I said and p
(Roden POV) I just looked at Zaki while getting dressed. I touched my jaw. Furthermore, I was nervous before that I might not be able to get my jaw back, but in just a second Zaki got it back to normal as if he hadn't just dislocated it. There is something hidden from this guy. "Come on. I'll take you home." He said after getting dressed and fixing my uniform that he messed up. He pulled me up and down on the bed. Zaki held my back out of the clinic. I feel like I'm not that angry with him anymore. In the hallway, he stopped and looked down. I saw Ian and Nate in the garden sitting on the bench. I looked at Zaki. He stared at Ian. For the first time, I felt jealous of a man. Zaki's gaze is full of love for his younger childhood Ian Cole Mercado even though
(Roden POV) <Crown University> Until now, I still can't move properly. That Zaki is naughty. My whole body hurts. "Hey, you're alone again huh." Said a voice behind me. I was distracted. There are six men and one woman in the group. Who are these people again? TSK with the number of enemies I have, I don't know if my enemy or friend is in front of me. I was just shocked when someone kicked me. Arghh shit, I can't fight well because my body still hurts. Damn it! They beat me to death. "Are you a Stygian? We heard the Stygian are strong and good fighters, but it doesn't look like that!" The woman said once pulling my hair. "I'm just not in the mood right now," I answered, so the woman knelt on me and slapped me. "Then we'll just kill you with no difficulty." They keep hurting
