16. "Your damsel in distress is waiting to be resued"

Ryder’s POV

Your damsel in distress is waiting to be resued-j

When I looked at my phone I saw that text from Jason. My first thought was what the hell is this kid talking about. Then my brain decides to work for once and I called him. He didn’t answer his phone the first time. So I did the logical thing, I called again and again and again until I knew he would have enough and answer.

"What!" Jason growled out when he finally answered his phone. I never heard him sound so pissed off before. So I knew he must be with a girl. Defiantly Mia.

"So how’s your day going?" I said trying to piss him off even more.

"Ryder I don’t have time for your shit" Jason said into the phone.

'God I’m just trying to be a good friend no need to pms" I said pretending to me hurt.

"What the hell do you want Ryder"

"Fine fine. I wanted to know what the hell your cryptic text meant. Who the hell is my damsel in distress?" I said.

"Oh that. Your so dense sometimes who would (your) damsel be" Jason said laughing.

"Shut the fuck up and just tell me" I said tired of all this suspense already.

"Clam your tits. Your damsel is Riley" Jason said.

Just the sound of her name made my ears perk up. Since I admitted to myself that I liked her I couldn't get her out of my head. Yea I like her. After a long talk with Jason about feelings it finally came down to the fact that liked Riley in a more than physical way. Although her amazing looks and hot little body is appreciated too.

"Ryder you still there?" Jason asked when I didn't answer for a minute.

"Yea I'm still here" I said clearing my throat.

"What you thinking of Riley" Jason said drawing out the y in her name.

"Shut up and go back to your date" I said about to hang up.

"I'm-I'm not on date" Jason stuttered out his voice sounding like a thirteen year old girl. His giveaway whenever he is lying.

"No need to lie jasy boy I know everything" I said ending with a loud evil laugh. In the background I heard Mia's voice called Jason's name.

"Told you. Now go have fun on your date" I said hanging up. To Riley's home we go.


It was a surprisingly warm day since it was mid-October. The sun was out and the birds were singing. God what is happening to me? I sound like a girl. How it looked outside was exactly how I was feeling on the inside. Just knowing I was going to see Riley just made my whole insides feel like they were going to explode.

When I drove into the neighborhood that Jason gave me I was a little taken back. Riley couldn't live here. This place looked like you could get mugged just walking on the street in bright daylight. Most of the buildings looked like they were one second away from crumbling to the ground. Sketchy looking guys were hanging out on the street corner, while half dressed women were walking up and down the streets. I defiantly had the wrong address. But I kept going just in case.

I stood in front of Riley's door contemplating weather or not to knock. (Grow some balls and just knock on the God damn door) the annoying voice in my head said. Haven’t heard from him in a while. When I finally knocked on the door I was shocked at the sight in front of me.

There Riley stood with big glasses covering her beautiful hazel eyes and her hair golden pulled back in a messy ponytail. She was covered in sweats and fuzzy socks.

"Ryder what are you doing here!" Riley screamed out turning to look back behind her. I knew she was checking to see if any of her family members were coming.

"Well I heard from your fairy god mother that you were in need of a rescuing" I said smirking at her. The look on Riley's face looked like she wanted to jump into my arms and hug and life out of me. Something I would accept with open arms.

"Well although you’re not Mia or Zoe I'll take it. Wait here one second while I get changed" Riley said running into her house not giving me a chance to say anything else.

I stood outside of Riley's door for about five minutes before her mom came to the door. Riley's mom looked like an older version of her.

"Are you one of Riley's friend" Riley's mom asked as she smiled up at me. I was practically towering over the women.

"Yea. Me and Riley go way back" I said smiling.

"Oh. What did you say your name was again?"

"I didn't but its Ryder"

"Mhm Riley never mentioned a Ryder"

"Well Riley never mentioned how young her mother was. You could be her sister" I said turning on the Prince charm.

"You are a little charmer aren't you" she said laughing.

I didn't get a chance to say anything else because Riley came bouncing towards the front door.

"Bye mom Ryder and I have a project to work on" she lied.

"Yea a project" her mom said laughing while putting air quotes around the word project. I was taken back at how her mom knew she was lying and she was ok with it.

"Bye mom" Riley said kissing her mom cheek. I just stared at the exchange between mother and daughter.

"Bye Mrs. Hart".


Riley was surprisingly relaxed in my presents. The whole car ride to my house she all laughs and giggles. I infer why she wanted to leave her house if she's in such a good mood.

"So Princess Riley why were you in need of rescuing" I said glancing at her before setting my eyes back on the road.

"Well my Annoying birth of a cousin was over at my house and she was just pissing me off"

"I can't relate I don't have any cousins"

"Seriously no cousin! That's so weird. Everyone has cousins. It’s like mandatory" Riley said shocked at the fact that I don't have cousins.

"Well I was never one to follow rules anyway" I said as we pulled up to my house. Which was just an enormous hotel that looked like it disappeared into the sky.

"Why are we here" Riley asked looking at me in confusion.

"Well this is where I live"

"No you don't"

"I'm pretty sure I know where I live twinks"

"But during our date you went to another house to get your wallet" Riley said titling her head back to look up at me. She’s so cute.

"Oh that. That was the house I usually live in but my dad is out of town on business and I didn't want to stay there by myself" I said explaining myself.

"Oh" was all she said and walked towards the hotel.

I expected Riley to react like every other girl that saw where I live, but once again she surprised me. Riley just followed me into the apartment after I open the door for her. What I can be a gentleman when I want to.

"So what are we gonna do now" Riley said as I walked into my apartment. The apartment was way too big for two people, well one person since my dad is never home.

"Well we could finish what we started in the kitchen during our date" I said smirking while taking a step towards her.

"How about no" Riley said turning around and walking towards the amazing view of New York I have right in my apartment.

Just as I was about to say something cheeky back I heard keys clinking together outside my door. Shit why so he back. He wasn't supposed to be back for weeks. The door flew open to reveal a Middle Age man standing there in a grey suit and a look on his face that looked like he hasn't smiled a day in his life. Also known as my dad.

"Dad why are you home so early" I said rubbing the back of my neck a nervous habit.

"Well I forgot some important documents I needed for a meeting" he said without looking at me already turning to his office. Not a hello or how are you. Father son goals right here people. Note my sarcasm.

"Oh who are you?" I heard my father asked someone. Fuck I forgot Riley was here.

"Hi I'm Riley Hart” Riley said smiling while putting out here hand to shake. My father being the rude bastard he is didn't even acknowledge her greeting. He just turned to me with an unknown look in his eyes.

"Ryder can I have a word with you"

"Sure go ahead"

"I Meant outside" he said walking outside with me following close behind.

"What did you want to talk about" I said wanting to get this over with.

"Ryder I thought I rises you better" he said pausing. Well you didn't raise me at all I wanted to say back.

"I thought I raised you to know where you stood in this world. To know the type of people to associate yourself with"

"The people I associate myself with is none of your concern father" I said grinding my teeth.

"It is my concern when who you are hanging out with can tarnish our family name"

"Me hanging out with Riley will not tarnish our family name. She is from a good family and is a good person" I said standing up for Riley.

"I don't care if she is a good girl. Look at the way she dress and put herself out there, she is of the low class people. We do not associate with people like that" he said in a final tone.

"I don't care about much money she has. I'm not a greedy judgmental ass hole like you" I said walking in the apartment and grabbing Riley's arm.

"Let's go”
