"Stay Away!" He yelled. "You don't want to see me like this."

8. Chapter 7

Karissa's P.O.V.

My eyes slowly opened squinting at the harsh sunlight coming from my window. Once my eyes were used to the light of my room I sat up looking behind me for his long figure to still be near. 

But he was gone. I could see the empty space were he laid last night. I ran my hand over the soft covers. They were still warm with his body heat. Still giving off the aroma of his light colon. I stood up taking the line bed sheet and putting it around my freezing torso. I stepped into the living room. He wasn't there. I looked out the living room window. To find his black Audi gone. I sighed falling on the near couch and looking at the time. 

'10:00 am'  I knew I had to work today. I wish I didn't have to. It was a Saturday and what I only wanted to do was to sleep a little while longer. But I knew I couldn't. I heard the pitter patter of small feet enter the living room. 

"Karissa?"  Cheron asked tiredly as he rubbed his eyes. He stood in the kitchen pajamas still hugging his small body.

"Yes bud." 

"Can I have Cheerios?" He asked tilting his head to the side. I stood up picking him up and placing him on my right hip. 

"Of course you can." I said kissing his cheek. While walking to the kitchen. He looked around confused.

"Where's Dustin?"

"Its Justin Cheron." I said giggling at his mispronunciation. His lips formed and 'O' shape. "And he left." 

"Why?" He asked. I really of course didn't know. To be honest I was actually anticipating him still holding me when I woke up. Pushing the hair out of my face. But like usual things don't always go my way. 

"I don't know." I shrugged placing him on the kitchen counter. I reached for the box of Cheerios as he spoke. 

"Is he your boyfriend?" He asked making a disgusted face. Being only 3 going on 4 this kid sure did like to talk. I chuckled as I finished pouring the dry cereal into a bowel. 

"No he isn't my boyfriend." I said handing him his bowel. He ate slowly making sure to get all the Cheerios he could in one hand. And soon holding his full hand to his mouth devouring his breakfast. I brought him down from the counter to a chair. "Eat quick cause we are going to my job today okay?" He nodded quickly. 

Since my dad was gone, and since the day care was closed on the weekends taking him to work with me was my best decision. I knew my boss wouldn't mind. I have taken Cheron with me before. He normally just watches Anthony, the chef, cook and would get entertained when he started to flip pancakes or would get out the live lobster from the tank. I knew he didn't mind coming. And either way if he didn't want to come. It wasn't his choice. He was 3 years old. Not 30.

I put in the order ticket in the window. I turned around to see Hanna skipping up to me. 

"Hey K, why'd you have to leave last night? Bail your boyfriend out of jail?" She teased bumping her hip into mine. I shook my head smiling at her goofiness. 

"No I didn't and he's not my boyfriend." I exclaimed. She would always go above and beyond what I would say. 

"Oh bullshit!" She shouted. I 'shh'ed her tilting my head back to Cheron who was coloring on of the kids menus. "Sorry." She whispered. "But why did he need you anyway? To give you that?" She said pressing her finger on my neck. I felt over my neck and pressed hard, well too hard that I caused a small pain to flow. I took my phone out looking at myself in the camera to find a large bruise invading the skin. 

"Shit." I said over my breath. I heard her chuckled as I brought my hair to the side of my neck covering the dark mark. 

"Speaking of the devil." She mumbled. Tilting her head to the door. I looked over and there he was walking in scoping out the place. I elbowed Hanna's arm hard. "What was that for." She winced rubbing her arm. 

"Don't talk about him like that." I said turning around. I didn't want Justin to see me. I needed to work right now and I didn't want to seem too desperate. Inside I really did want to see him. Its not like turning around would make a difference because I could feel his eyes planted on me. And Hanna's 'uh oh' was a big help. 

"Watch Cheron for me." I said turning around. His eyes were locked on me. He licked his bottom lips and soon took it between his teeth. I didn't take my eyes off of him. Nor that I wanted to. "I'll be right back." I said walking to the front to where he was standing. As I made my way to him I saw multiple eyes stare at him. His face was emotionless his eyes were dark. Soon I found myself face to face with him. "Hi." I said in a low whisper. 

"Hey." He said as my eyes darted to the ground. 

"You left last night." I quietly spoke. There was silence for a good few seconds. I felt the shyness start to grow in me. I didn't make eye contact with him. I knew if I did look into those dark brown eyes I would do anything and whatever he would say or want. 

"I had to take care of somethings." He whispered. 

I just nodded. I didn't want to know what he was 'taking care of' cause I knew if it was bad I would get upset and his anger would rise. 

"Can I speak with you...in private?" 

"Um, I'm suppose to be working right now. But I have break in an hour." I said finally looking up. The first thing my eyes caught were his lips. Right near me. I guess since I wasn't looking up I didn't realize he was closer. His stomach was pressed to mine. 

"I cant wait that long. What can I do to get you out of here for a little bit?" He asked placing his hand on my back and bringing me closer. I rested my hands on his stomach. I looked around to see a few eyes staring at us. But Justin was only looking at me. 

"Five Minutes. Outside."  I said. He sighed. I know he wasn't happy I was only giving him five minutes. But it was the least I could do. I had to work 5 hours being paid only 2.50 and hour. Only being given a 45 minute break. He was lucky I was even taking that small amount of minutes out of my work schedule. He nodded. Taking my hand walking outside into the cold December air. We walked to the back of the building, hands not coming apart. Once we were back there I leaned against the building wall. My hand letting go of his hand placing both on my shoulders and down my arms rubbing for heat to build up. 

"Cold?" Justin said slipping his leather jacket off. 

"Little bit." I answered as he placed it over my shoulders. His hand came leaning on the wall near my head. He took a deep breath.

"I gave them the rest of the money." He started. "I didn't take anything. I just finished my pay and left." He said taking his free hand and pushing some loose strains of hair behind my ear. 

"Where'd you get the money from?" I asked. That's when his head dropped and shook his head. 

"I wish you wouldn't have asked babe." He said quickly. He couldn't have. He wouldn't have. I pushed his hand that was still resting on my cheek away. I now had a disgusted look pastured on my face. 

"Well I am asking! Why would you do that!" I shouted. He just kept his head down. Not saying anything. "Is that why you left. To go steal some money for your stupid drugs?!" I could see his jaw tighten and his eyes get bold. 

"You know I had to." He said deeply. 

"No you didn't!" I fought back. 

"What the fuck was I suppose to do get my ass whipped again!! Huh!?" He shouted in my face. I took charge and pushed him back. I went to turn around not in the mood to fight with him. But he took my arm and brought me back. His arms blocking me. Just like before. 

"You could've asked. You know I wouldn't mind." I said.  He shook his head fast. 

"No you know I couldn't do that. I don't want you to get involved. You'll get hurt-"

"Its just money Justin. Its not like I'm going with you to give it to them." Right now our nose was touching and his breathe warmed my lips. 

"I don't want you worrying about me." 

"Its not a choice." I replied. I stared deep into his dark eyes but soon I couldn't help myself. I caught his lips in mine. His hands were soon placed on the sides of my face bringing me closer. My hands placed on his stomach moving up slowly to place my hands on his neck. He sucked on my bottom lip as I did his top lip. We pulled apart slowly, his lips still hovered over mine.

There was a short  silence and then he spoke. "I've never met someone like you before." He said staring into my eyes. "Someone that could be so shy, then burst out at you, not afraid to spit out the truth like that."  

"I'm not that special Justin." I said dropping my hands to my sides. He raised his eye brow and smirked. He pecked my lips quickly. 

"To me you are." He whispered. I sighed remembering where I was. 

"I have to get back to work." I said resting my head on his shoulder. 

"Lunch is in an hour?" He asked. I nodded slowly. "I'll pick you up." 

"I have Cheron with me." I said. "I don't trust Hanna will watch him." I smiled. He lightly chuckled showing off his perfect teeth. 

"I'll pick you both up." He said. To be honest. I know if my dad were here, he wouldn't want Justin to be anywhere near Cheron. Not even in the same building. But right now I trusted Justin. I could never trust him before. He hasn't earned all f my trust but he was slowly going. But every time I'm ready to trust me with my all he disappointing me. I know what I was doing was wrong. Seeing him. Kissing him. I shouldn't be wit him. I knew he was too dangerous for me. But looking into those brown eyes, those intriguing brown eyes. I knew that once I set eyes on them. I had to go back to him.

    He giggled as Justin put 2 french fries in his mouth pretending to have french fry teeth. I couldn't help but chuckle myself.

"Your so silly." Cheron said scrunching his nose as he giggled. Justin smiled and took them out handing me one asking if I would like it. I looked at him like he was crazy and shoved his hand away. Which made Cheron laugh even more. Justin shrugged and bit on the fry chuckling. Cheron took his fries and started copying Justin. Justin laughed his face turning red. I shook my head at their goofiness. This is what I meant by Justin is confusing. One moment he's like this, a normal teenage boy, and soon he's killing a man. I knew to stop thinking right there cause I would've lost my appetite. 

"K." I heard someone call. I turned to find Justin and Cheron both having french fry teeth. I couldn't help but laugh when Justin tried to lick the fry to get it into his mouth. My laughter grew even more when I saw our waiter come by the table and look confused at what they were doing. Justin gave a confused look and turned around still with the fries in his mouth. 

"Oh hello." He said. She just chuckled and picked up the empty plates. 

"Need a tooth brush there son. Looks like your teeth are a little on the crispy side of you ask me." She said. Justin spit out his fries onto his plate. As Cheron pulled them out quickly. I held my stomach still laughing uncontrollably. She cleared the empty plates. "Boys will be boys." She said to herself walking back. 

"Ha Ha!" I teased pointing at Cheron. He crossed his arms over his chest giving me a pout. 

"Meanie." He said putting his head down on the table. I giggled as Justin followed soon after. Justin tickled Cheron under the seat to make him smile again. I looked at the time on my phone. 12:35. 

"We have to get going." I said standing out of the booth. Grabbing Cheron and I's jackets. 

"Already?" Justin said face getting disappointed. 

"I'm sorry. I have to work" 

"Can I say with Justin while you work?" Cheron asked. I looked at Justin who looked at me. I couldn't leave Cheron with Justin...yeah he made Cheron happy but, Justin was dangerous. I'd rather me be with them then have them both alone together.

"Not today Ok? You'll see Justin again later." 

Cheron started to pout. Justin scooped him up in his arms and sat him on his lap. 

"Listen bud, we'll hang out later yeah?" Justin said into his neck.

"Promise?" Cheron asked holding out his pinky.

"I promise" Justin stated connecting them. With a smile Cheron hopped off of Justin's lap and grabbed my hand, I put both of our coats on and before we left I turned to Justin. 

"Thanks. I think we had a good time." 

He smiled and nodded. "I'll see you later" he said.

Cheron waved goodbye as we exited the diner and headed back to my job. 

"I like him!" Cheron shouted as we got outside. "Don't you?" He asked.

"......I guess so."
