I'm Ariel, I like to think of myself as a typical teenage girl, but Nick changed all of that and turned my life upside down.

Nick is not your average guy, he runs the biggest baddest gang in California, he's the most known guy but he's still the biggest mystery.


6. chapter 6

"Ariel?" I heard someone call, walking into the room. Somehow, I ended up hiding in a cabinet in the closet. I stopped myself from answering because what if it wasn't Nick or at least someone in the royals and they wanted to kill me!? "Ariel, please come out" he called again, getting closer to the closet. "It's Nick" he called for confirmation.

I peaked my head out of the cabinet to make eye contact with Nick. He had blood splattered on his face and white shirt. The overwhelming thought of how many people lay dead or injured down there makes me sick, it's a lot to handle and just be thrown into.

"It's okay, come here" he stuck his hand out for me to grab, he gently helped me from my fetus position and stared at me quietly, as if he was waiting for an explosion of emotion or something.

"Are you okay" I asked calmly, looking him straight in the eyes.

"Nothing I haven't dealt with before" he shrugged. What does that mean? I just gave him a look that said 'what the fuck'. "I got shot in shoulder blade, it's fine" he shook his head.

"Oh my god, you were shot!?" I gasped, freaking out and loosing my coolness. "I mean holy shit, like what do I do" I panicked, wide eyed.

"You don't have to do anything, I'll pull out the bullet myself" he explained, walking to the bathroom and pulling a first aid kit out. "Who the fuck does he think he is, coming into my house and shooting at me!" He grumbled. "I mean I didn't shoot at him in his house, the least he could've done was practice his aim, wasn't even life threatening, I mean I shot the guy between the eyes" he rambled, pissed off.

"Are you sure you don't need help?" I whispered, I bit scared.

"Unless you want to pull out the bullet, I'm fine" he chuckled.

"No I don't like blood, I'll leave before I see it" I said, scrambling out of the bathroom.

"Don't go downstairs" I heard him yell behind me but I was already out the room and headed for the stairs.

"Oh my god!" I gasped, looking at the scene around me.

"Ariel, what are you doing down here" callum said, awkwardly.

"I uh- uh- I" I stuttered out, pointing around.

"Upstairs, go" he said firmly.

"But" I frowned.

"I'll take her out of the house for a bit" Sawyer offered.

"Nick would rip us all a new one" callum glared at him. "Ariel, seriously go upstairs" he sighed.

"Fine" I grumbled, turning around and stomping all the way upstairs.

"Love, are you okay?" He asked, pulling on a new shirt.

"Oh I'm just peachy!" I snapped.

"What's wrong?" He asked, sitting next to me.

"I just need to talk to my best friend" I sighed.

"Okay, I'll leave you too that" he sighed, nodding before walking out. "I'll be in my office" he said, fully shutting the door.

As soon as he left I checked my phone to see messages and calls from Cece, I called her instantly.

"I'm so sorry!" I yelled before she could rip me a new one.

"I've been worried sick, I spent hours crying to Taylor, even he's worried" she gritted out. Taylor is her long distance boyfriend in Texas, real nice guy I'd say. "So spill" she demanded, that was it. I told her everything that happened. "A gang house, that's new" she muttered.

"It's really nice here, they all treat me very well and take care of me" I offered.

"Well we need to hangout" she demanded.

"I'll ask nick" I said quickly. "I'll call you back" I said as I started for his office, not bothering to knock.

"Oh please come in" he said sarcastically, looking up at me.

"Oh whoops" I giggled, smiling sweetly. "I was wondering something" I said, taking a seat on his desk.

"What?" He asked leaning back in his chair.

"Can my friend come over to the house, I'm asking since it's your place and all" I rambled.

"No" he said simply, shocking me.

"What!?" I gasped. "Why not?" I demanded.

"We can't have outside people in the house right now" he groaned.

"I don't see the problem" I trailed off.

"There's bullet holes, blood stains and probably still some body's downstairs" he sighed. "Personally I don't want anyone in the house" he almost yelled. "But ask me again when the house is fixed up" he sighed.

"Okay, thank you" I nodded, standing up. "How are you doing?" I asked, walking between his legs.

"A bit better now" he muttered, resting his hands on my waist.

"Oh good, glad to hear" I smiled, rubbing his neck. "You seem tense" I whispered, leaning in so we made eye contact.

"You could help" he smirked.

"What can I d-" I got cut off by a knock on the door.

"What?" Nick snapped, as the opened the door.

"Am I interrupting something?" Lucas trailed off.

"Kind of" he gritted out. "What do you want?" He groaned.

"The house is pretty much fixed up" he squeaked.

"If it's pretty much done, why are you here" he growled.

"I, well um" he muttered. "What do you want us to do with them" he said awkwardly.

"Dump them" Nick shrugged.

"I don't know, we haven't done this in the house at all" Lucas said, wide eyed.

"I swear you guys are blocks" Nick sighed, standing up. "You can't do anything" he added, leading him out of the room.

I wanted to follow but I knew everyone wouldn't be too happy with that. So I just sat up on the top step, and try to catch some action. I just don't understand why he won't let me get involved, at least just a little bit. He's really underestimating me I think, Or he isn't.... Maybe he's right I'm not ready.

"How you holding up?" Bianca asked, sitting next to me.

"When does all this become normal?" I asked, frowning.

"It doesn't" she laughed. "I've been doing this for 6 years, I've just been passed around" She shrugged. "Who knows where I'll be next, but I won't be here much longer" she sighed.

"What's going to happen to you?" I asked, looking over to her.

"Traded most likely, but I could end up like Hannah" she said.

"What happened to Hannah?" I asked, confused.

"Around here, girls get traded" she explained. "Sure you can bring in a new girl but it's all about trafficking, once no one came in for her, I assumed she just got ditched because he realized no one would want her" she continued.

"But he can't just do that!" I gasped.

"Ariel, I'll tell you something" she began. "You can't just change the business like that, it's the way it is for a reason, you just have to learn that and roll with it" she said, a bit harshly.

"I understand" I muttered. "But he has to keep you" I said, determined, as I stood up.

"Don't" she said, grabbing my arm.

"I have to" I stated, pulling my arm from her and marching downstairs. I ignored everyone's calls to stop me till I stood in front of Nick. "You can't get rid of Bianca" I said, looking him right in the eyes.

"Who says?" He said, amused. "I'm the boss around here and what I say goes" he said, staring me down. It almost made me want to back down, but I couldn't I have to do this.

"Keep her" I gritted out angrily.

"This is just too cute, watching you get all red and shit" he chuckled. How is any of this funny!? "But I'll think about it" he added, with a sigh.

"Thanks!" I nodded, turning around and finally taking in what was around with a gasp.

"What's wrong?" Nick asked quickly.

"Nothing" I shook my head. I couldn't let him see that this was a lot to handle for me, because I needed to show him I was ready. "Don't worry" I muttered.

"You want to help?" He asked, with a smirk.

"Sure" I squeaked out, nervous of what I would have to do.

"Help Jake over there plaster over the holes" he said, pointing towards the guy by the wall.

"I can do that" I nodded with a smile, walking over to jake. "I'm Ariel" I stuck a hand out for him to shake.

"I know" he stated, handing me stuff to do the walls. "Do it right" he said, getting back to the job.

He doesn't seem to friendly, I mean he's got a resting scowl and droopy eyes and he wouldn't even shake my hand!

"How long have you been here?" I asked, working slowly.

"Just work" he grumbled, ignoring me. So we just did the whole job in silence, awkward silence I may add. The guy gave me a dirty look if I was being too loud, I really got the hint to work fast so I could go be with Nick again.... That feels odd to say. I don't even know how I feel about the guy!

"Love, come here" Nick said, putting down the bucket and my scrape thing. "Okay, so I've decided that I think you are re-" he started but stopped when the doorbell went off, everyone froze a bit on edge. "Someone answer the door" he said, grabbing my hand and leading me to his room.

"What we're you saying?" I asked, curious.

"I was going to say that I think you are re-" he started but got cut off by callum opening the door.

"It's a girl looking for you, she didn't say much else, but she did say that you know her" he explained. Nick told me to stay put before he and callum went downstairs.

~Nicks pov~

"What the fuck are you doing here" I said as soon as I walked into the living room and saw her staring up at me, the way she always did...
