Gang Leader's Choice

Being new is hard anyways, but being new and already having people hate you is harder. Adeline moves from North Carolina to California and immediately meets the most popular kids at school, as one of them is her neighbor. Adeline's life is hard from running from her past, to moving, to barely having friends, to meeting a gang.
Mason Clarke is feared by everyone just because he is a gang leader. When he meets his Adeline his whole world changes. New emotions, being nice, possessive, caring, instead of his usual cold, secluded, stubborn self. Mason isn't used to not getting what he wants being a gang leader but Adeline isn't that easy.
But hey, the gang leader gets what the gang leader wants and he wants Adeline now.

Chapter Twenty-Three: Mason's Secret & Sara's Boyfriend

Adeline's p.o.v.

So I only slept for 2 1/2 hours before being awoken for school.

"Babe get up," Mason said pulling me to sit up.

"No!" I said like a defiant little child.

"Baby we have to go. Today is exam day," Mason said.

"Make me," I said and looked at him then bit my lip when a dark look came over his eyes. Mason then kissed me and lifted me up.

"There," Mason said and handed me joggers and a sweater.

"You suck I only got to sleep for 2 hours," I said.

"Too bad, lets go," Mason said and then sat on his bed as I got ready.

"Ok, since when was today exam day?" I asked knowing he was lieing.

"It never was, I just need to take you somewhere," Mason said.

"Wait you woke me up at 6 am for 'school' not to take me to school?" I asked.

"It's important Addy. We have to go before Clark gets there," Mason said.

"Fine," I said.

After a 30 minute drive we are at a cemetery. Cemetery?

"A cemetery?" I ask trying not to sound rude but do anyways.

"Today's a special but sad day," Mason said.

"Your parents?" I asked.

"No someone more special to me," Mason said. Scarlett?

"Is it......Scarlett?" I asked.

"Yeah," Mason basically whispered continuing to lead the way. We walked to her grave in silence. I mean really, there wasn't any reason to talk like 'hey how's your day mines ok.' When we got to a fairly empty part about 20 other tombs around in a 5 acre land. Mason sat down in front of a tomb and i followed suit.

Scarlett Mason


A Beloved Daughter and Sister

Will always remain in our hearts

Then Mason brushed a pile of leaves away to uncover small writing that said 'and girlfriend.'

"I'll tell you everything that happened," Mason said without looking at me.

"I don't want to pressu-," I was saying.

"No. I want to you're my girlfriend now anyways," Mason said.

"It started when I was in 8th grade and she was in 7th grade. She didn't look like Clark's little sister but instead a really pretty girl that I gotta see at school everyday. I knew I liked her beforehand but I brushed those feeling away. One day Clark invited me over so, obviously, I went but when I got there his parents weren't there it was only Scarlett. She told me that Clark just left for the corner store and allowed me in, still obviously. So I went to the kitchen with her and then I couldn't help but tell her I loved her. She was surprised but then Clark came before she told me if she felt the same. I then learnt more about Clark's out-of-school schedule to know when I could go over to be with Scar. We started dating but no one knew, ever. One day I went over and her parents came into her room and we were kissing but they accepted me and so we continued to date. I knew that she self-harmed but whenever we gotta spend lots of time together she didn't, I checked. One day I hadn't really been with her for a week or something and that's she week she cut too deep. Because of me. Shortly after my parents died, I lost who I thought was my only true love. But Addy I feel like a part of her is the same as you and I know you two would've been friends because you are so caring and considerate." Mason then started bawling his eyes out and I let him rest his head on my shoulder.

'Thank you Scarlett for allowing Mason to know that emotions will always exist if he wants them or not.' I thought.

"Mason it wasn't you're fault though," I said and stroked his hair. Soft hair.

"But it was I knew she was unstable," Mason said and lifted his head.

"So it my have something to do with you but Mason you shouldn't beat yourself up because of it," I said.

"No I know it was all my fault," Mason said looking sad.

"Mason Bradley Zane Clarke, it wasn't entirely your fault. Clark told before that she got bullied. You may have been her rock but you were in high school while she was at the middle school getting bullied," I said. Mason looked surprised but didn't respond for a few minutes.

"Yeah she was, and I left her alone to that to be popular and fit in," Mason said.

"Mace just don't beat yourself up," I said and stroked his hair.

"But Addy," Mason said. "She did leave a note and I still have them. Not one note or two she left (13 notes lmao jkjk) 4 notes."

"Why doesn't Clark know?" I asked moving away slightly to look at him.

"Because I never gave him the notes. One was for me, one was for Clark, another for her mom and dad, and the last one was for everyone that bullied her," Mason said.


"I know, I know but I couldn't do it, it told everyone we were dating," Mason said.

"Well she seemed great. Mace...Would still be dating if she didn't kill herself, you know after I moved to town?" I asked.

"I don't know, I started letting popularity get to my head when we were dating," Mason said.

"Oh," I said.

"Let's get going though," Mason said and grabbed my hand and walked back to his motorcycle. When we got back to the house we saw Sara making out with some guy.

"Do you know him?" Mason asked me.

"Nope," I said.

"Sara?" Mason then asked. Startled Sara pulled away and pushed the guy away in hoped of hiding him.

"Yeah," Sara asked innocently.

"Who's he? I know he's not from our gang," Mason said.

"Oh this boyfriend, Ryder Curhan," Sara said looking down.

"What gang are you from?" Mason asked.

"Well I'm not really part of the gang that much but the Fight Method district," Ryder said.

"Would you like to be part of our gang?" Mason asked.


"Not if you shout like a girl," Mason growled.

"Sorry but, yes," Ryder said.

"Follow me," Mason said.

"BIG BROTHER! BIG BROTHER!" Markus shouted running up to Mason.

"Stay with Addy and Sara as I do business, ok?" Mason said.

"Ok," Markus said and came over to me.

"Sooo. Sara?" I asked mischievously.

"Yeah that's my boyfriend," Sara said shyly.

"What's going on over here?" Kacey asked with Ralfeal. Kacey's been more open lately mostly after her and Ralfeal started dating.

"Sara's boyfriend. How did you meet?" I asked.

"Well 2 years ago I went to the school football game, as usual, and he was playing and I literally bumped into him and we had started talking and automatically clicked, like you and Mason," Sara said basically gushing.

"Aww," Kacey and I said.

"Where is he?" Ralfeal asked instead.

"Oh, Mason is talking to him," Sara said.

"Addy?" Markus asked.

"Yeah," I said.

"Can we play hide and seek?" Markus asked.

"Umm..." I said unsure.

"Yeah," Sara said.

"I wanna be it! Can I be it?!" Markus said.

"If you start counting," Sara joked.

"1,2,3,...." Markus said and covered his eyes. We all ran to decently open places but still difficult.

"Found you!" Markus said to Sara. "You have to help me now."

"That's not how you play," Sara said.

"Yeah that's how I was told to play," Markus said.

"Markus?" Mason asked from the other room.

"Big Brother!" Markus exclaimed and ran over to him. Kacey, Ralfeal, and I came out from our hiding spots and went over to them.

"Markus want to meet the new member of our gang?" Mason asked.

"Yeah," Markus said.

"This is Ryder, shake his hand like and adult," Mason said holding Markus. Yep definitely a turn on seeing a guy with kids.

"Do you have what it take Ryder," Markus asked trying to be serious.

"I could never compete with your abilities," Ryder said.

"What does that mean?" Markus asked.

"You're the boss," Mason joked.

"Yeah I'm the boss around here," Markus said.

"Markus do you want to give Ryder a tour of the house?" Mason asked.

"Yeah," Markus said and started walking.

"Sara, go with him just in case," Mason said. "In the mean time lets go to my room I'm exasperated."

"So...wanna take a nap?" I asked when we got to his room.

"Yeah a nap sounds great," Mason said and changed then lied down on his bed and I followed suit. Naps are great.
