I walk out of my last class and go to my locker to put my books away and grab my school bag. I shut my locker and see Liam talking to Marissa. I feel complete jealousy. I walk out of the school and to Peyton's car. I wait for her to show up. Thirty minutes later and she's not here. So I get into her vehicle and drive home. I see the black Range Rover parked by our house. I get out and walk up to the door, it's unlocked. I walk in and grab the bat thats in the closet, I hear noise coming from the family room. I see Peyton sleeping on Niall's lap.
"What are you doing here?" I yell. He jumps at my voice.
"Shhhh! You'll wake Peyton up." He says looking down at her as he tucks a piece of her hair behind her ear.
"Get out!!" I yell a little bit louder.
"I said be quiet!" He raises his voice a bit. Peyton literally jumps off the couch and lands on the floor. She scoots back against the wall. Niall kneels down in front of her.
"It's okay princesa." He coos.
"Get the fuck out of our house!" I yell and point to the door. Peyton scrambles to get up and runs upstairs. Niall gives me a glare and walks outside, slamming the door behind him.
I get to the sidewalk and my phone rings.
"Hey" My buddy Lou speaks through the phone.
"Hey man, whats up?"
"The boss has a new assignment for us."
"What is it?"
"You know that rich fucker, Danny? He's having a party tonight and the boss wants him dead." Me and the other guys never got along with Danny. I can't wait to see the fucker die.
"Okay. Where is it at?"
"His second mansion. Oh and the boss says to bring a girl." He hangs up. I run into Peyton's back yard, climbing the fence. I get up to her window and tap on it.
I run upstairs and into my room. I sit on my bed in complete shock at what I woke up too. I hear tapping coming from my window. I get up and see Niall, I lift the windowsill up just a bit.
"What do you want?" I ask him through the little crack off the window sill.
"There's a party later tonight, and your going with me." He demands. He doesn't even ask, and I stand there a little shocked. He can't tell me what to do.
"No." His eyes widened, a frown aimed at me as he bit his lip in frustration.
"Peyton, don't argue with me. You're coming."
"No, I'm not." I spit and cross my arms. I am surprised at how I am standing up for myself.
"You coming with me, and that's final!" He raises his voice.
"You don't understand that no means no do you? I am not being dragged to a party." I glare at him, he stalks toward me. His chest falling and rising quickly, he balls up his fists. He presses me up against my wall. He holds my neck, I try to push him off but he's to strong. My throat began closing up.
"You don't get it do you? You're mine."
I tried to escape from his firm hold, but it wasn't working. His grip tightened around my neck, the pain becoming too much.
"Niall! You're hurting me... please." I whimpered. He immediately let go, he backs away. His face softens, but I can barely see through the tears brimming my eyes.
"Peyton, I-I'm sorry. I didn't mean to h-hurt you." His rough fingertips glide across the bruise forming on my neck, I slapped his hand away. he apologies have no meaning.
"Don't touch me!" I yell. I hear footsteps coming up the stairs. Lexi storms in. She looks at Niall then back to me.
"What did you do to her?" She screamed.
"Get out!" Lexi yells and pushes Niall towards the window. He huffs and climbs out. My neck starts to hurt more. Lexi stands there, waiting for me to explain.
"I don't want to talk about it.." I whimper. She wraps her arms around me, I couldn't hold the tears back anymore. Why would Niall hurt me like that?
"We'll talk about this later but, we have to get to work." I nod and head up stairs behind Lexi. I hop in the shower quickly and change into a white blouse, a black knee length skirt and black heels. Lexi and me head outside. We get in my car and I drop her off at the bookstore she works at. I drive to Vances Publishing, where I work.
