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.


23. Chapter Twenty-Two: Scarlett & The Ball


Chapter Twenty-Two: Scarlett & The Ball

Adeline's p.o.v.

Scarlett Mason? Mason? Like Clark Mason? So Clark's dead little sister?

"You told me it was-!!!" Clark started shouting when Mason interrupted him

"I lied. I didn't want you to know I was dating your little sister," Mason said.

"Did you know about this?" Clark asked James.

"No clue I believed what he told us," James said.

"Take me to my house," Clark said.

"But Clark you ha-"Mason was saying.

"No Mason! I said take me to my house!!!" Clark shouted. The car ride was then silent. No music. No humming. No tapping. No nothing. Just the faint breathes of everyone. Once we got to our street and outside the house Clark got out and went into his house.

"Um... I'll just go now," I said and opened the door.

"Yeah I'll see you later," Mason said as I got out.

When I got into my house I waved at Jack and sat by him.

"What did you get?" Jack asked.

"Oh 6" pumps," I said.

"Can you even walk in those?" Jack asked laughing as Nolan and Oli walked in.

"I don't know," I said laughing also.

"So how was your day?" Oli asked.

"Interesting. Well i'm exhausted so I'm going to be in my room resting," I said and went up to my room. When I got in I saw Clark staring down at the road smoking a cigarette. I went over, slightly hesitant, and went onto my balcony.

"Hi," I said and stood at the railing.

"Hi Addy," Clark said not looking at me.

"So about what happened?" I asked.

"I don't know. Mason told us he lost his virginity to a random chick from our gang but I guess he was dating my sister and had sex with her. To make it worse that means he hurt her and had something to do with killing herself. Scarlett didn't even leave a letter. Just died," Clark said.

"I...really don't know what to say," I said honestly.

"It's ok. I'm just upset at Mason right now, I thought that we were best friends through that. I feel somewhat betrayed since he's my best friend and then he had sex with my sister. I don't know if you know what its like but it's kinda awkward and sad because you don't the same trust as before. Although, it mostly hurt because Scarlett meant so much to me no matter what happened, she was always there in though times," Clark said and stomped on the cigarette.

"Clark, don't hold onto that. I bet Mason's also slightly upset at everything," I said.

"Maybe, thanks Addy. I''ll see you at the ball," Clark said and went into his room. 

I stayed outside for a couple more minutes enjoying the fresh air then went into my room, actually remembering to lock the door.


Clark and Mason and all the other gang had come over to my place over the week, but still Mason and Clark hadn't talked. I asked Mason about it but it seemed like he didn't want to talk about it at the moment so i left the subject opened when he felt ready. But for today I had gotten my dress, shoes, and clutch on my bed as I waited for Sara, Angie, and Kacey to get here.

"Addy can I come in?" Beckett asked as he knocked on my door.

"Yeah," I said as I was getting my straightener and curler.

"So.... We're going out for tonight and should be here later tonight, but if possible no matter how much I hate this idea, stay with Mason in case we're not home when the thing finishes tonight," Beckett said.

"I'll ask Mason if I can stay with him when I get there and I'll tell you what he says if that's what you want," I said smiling at my protective brother.

"That'll be nice but still, if you do or don't stay, don't do anything funny," Beckett smiled and left.

"Bye Addy!" Jack shouted around 5 minutes later right as Kacey, Sara, and Angie walked into my room.

"Your brothers' are so cool," Sara said and set down her stuff.

"Please don't be all weird now Sara," I said.

"What but i mean Beckett and Jackson are cute," Sara said winking at me.

"Ewww Sara! Those are my brothers'!" I exclaimed laughing.

"I'm just saying. Your family has some great genetics," Sara said.

"Well apparently Beckett's seeing someone because he had condoms in his room and I know you don't need that to masturbate," I said.

"Since when?" Kacey asked.

"I forgot but it was a couple weeks ago," I said.

"Do you have any suspicions?" Angie asked laying on my bed.

"Zero," I said.

"Wow, but now we'll help you find out who it is or was," Sara said.

"I said I think he's seeing someone not that he is," I said.

"We still will, but now let's get ready," Sara said.

After 3 hours of all of us getting ready we were all done with our dress on, make up on fleek, hair styled to perfection.

I had on my gorgeous black ball gown styled dress with the pumps and my hair with light curls and a smokey eye look to go with the dress. Kacey had on her gold dress black clutch and gold heels and a light simple make up look with her naturally straight blonde hair. Angie put her hair in a half up-half down style and curled it, she had on baby blue heels to contrast with her teal dress. Lastly was Sara who was absolutely gorgeous. Sara's sliver dress had a cut up to her hip which showed off her leg and you could see her heels. Sara's hair had a braid flowing into her naturally wavy hair.

"We need a picture!" Sara squealed. Sara pulled us into the bathroom and took a mirror selfie then I took a few pictures along with Angie then we left. When we got to the gang house no one was there yet but the guys were waiting. And Beckett, Nolan, Oli, and Jack?

"What are they doing here?" I asked Mason and gave him a little peck.

"Who?" Mason asked leaning in for more.

"My brothers'?!" I asked.

"Oh shit," Mason said.

"Hey Mason c'mon The Red Devils are 'ere," Xavier said as we went over to the door. All of Mason's gang was here and he wasn't lieing when he said that it was large. His gang was lined up against the staircase and around us as we stood by the door. I was basically on Mason side, Clark behind him, behind him was James, then Xavier, Ralfeal with Kacey, Sara, Carter, Angie, then Noah. I guess they have an order and so do the Red Devils but the way their standing. Obviously Kian was the first to come to the door with his gang lined up behind him. Almost immediately though 2 other gangs pulled up.

"Clarke good to see you again," Kian said.

"I wish i could say the same Golling. Since this is our treaty day, come in," Mason motioned as he walked in then winked at me. As his gang came in I noticed the Cheaters coming up behind them.

"Liam, come in once everyone is here we can start to ball," Mason said.

"We'll wait till then, Mason," Liam said then walked in. I could tell there was still some tension but not as much as with Kian. 

"Mason my bud can we come in," Jason said smirking as he stood by the door.

"Yes, it's good to see you Jason," Mason gritted out. After about 20 minuted almost all the gangs were here apparently only 2 left. A few cars pulled up and then people got out, I couldn't see who till they came over to Mason. William!

"Hello," William said with a sick smile.

"Come in, enjoy the ball," Mason fake smiled back just so done with everyone. When Will passed me I pushed myself closer to Mason if that was even possible and then luckily the next and last gang came in.

"Finally," I mumbled once they came in. All of us waited by the door for a little before going back to everyone.

"Addy let's go," Mason said and grabbed my hand pulling  me up the stairs with the few others from the gang following.

"What are you doing?" I asked as Mason grabbed the microphone.

"Directing everyone to the ball room," Mason said and turned on the microphone. "Hello everyone and welcome to our annual ball, to start the night we need everyone to head into our ball room. We will have my gang members lead everyone into calmly into the room so make sure your gangs are together to make this as easy and calm as possible."

Mason then turned off the mic and set it down as we went to the stairs to everyone sorting them around. Everyone finally made it into the ball room and we had to follow in. This has just started and I'm already exhausted. Mason kept  good grip on my hand and took me on stage with Kacey, who was with Ralfeal, my brothers' and 10 other people. Blaine, Golling, and Liam were also on stage with some people.

"So as our usual tradition we will introduce our new members and I will start the first dance," Mason said and handed Liam the mic. The other gangs introduced their new members.

The Fight Method had 3 new member, the Cheaters had 1, and the Red Devils had 4 new members. Then Mason was handed the mic. Oh shit! I started squirming in his arms, not noticeably, but failed. I looked over at the others and saw Kacey looking at Ralfeal pleadingly then looking at me, to which i just shrugged.

"This year we have had 8 new people join our gang," Mason started. "Starting with Adeline Baines, Beckett Baines, Nolan Baines...." 

Yeah you get it.

"No we'll start with the first dance of Mason and Adeline," Jason said. What are we a newly married couple.

"Whichever gang is hosting the ball has to have to first dance," Mason whispered to me and took me to the floor.

Mason put his hand on my waist and laced the other with my hand. I then put my other hand on his shoulder as the music started playing. Mason started moving I just followed along staring at his perfectly styled hair. Once the dance ended everyone came onto the dance floor and they put on a faster song so everyone was grinding on each other. I was standing by Mason as he was talking business with someone, when my phone buzzed. I took it out and saw a text from Sara.

Sara: Can you come up to my room quickly?

"Mason?" I whispered.

"Yeah?" Mason asked back.

"I'm going to Sara," I said.

"I'll go with you," Mason said.

"I'll be fine, I'll call you if there's an emergency," I said.

"....Fine," Mason said.

"I'll be right back," I promised and kissed his cheek.

Me: Yeah I'm on my way

Sara: Ok

I went up to see Sara right outside her room fiddling with a bracelet.

"What happened?" I asked Sara.

"Well I saw him and kinda freaked out but then we started talking and he's waiting in my room now but I know that not safe so," Sara said.

"Ok just go down 4 stories from here and the 3rd door to your left is the perfect room to get to know each other. It's like a library but isn't," I said.

"Thank you!" Sara squealed and hugged me.

"Your welcome," I smiled and hugged her back.

I left and was walking back to the ball room when someone pushed me against a wall. Instinctively I dialed Mason.

"Hey babe, I told Will I'll bring you back to him," Nathan said.

"Get off," I struggled.

"No! Just follow the damn rules for once," Nathan said.

"I hate you Nathan Gonzalez!" I exclaimed

"For fuck's sake will you sick perverts stop touching my girlfriend!" Mace roared.

"Huh?" Nathan question.

"Nathan we-" Will was saying but cut off by Mace.

"I'll let you off tonight and only tonight but get the fuck off my girlfriend," Mace said darkly.

"Shit! I'll get you later," Nathan said and ran off with Will.

"Let's get back, since I have to be the host I can't just leave and this is my house," Mace said as we walked back. Mason ended up talking gang business with some people but luckily I had Kacey near by so we were whispering to each other.

"Wanna dance?" Mace asked me.

"Sure," I said and we walked onto the dance floor with Kacey and Ralfeal right by us.

"So tonight's been nice," Mace joked.


"Oh you're on," Mace said as Ralfeal, Clark, Xavier, and James went behind him.

"This is fun," Carter said from beside me.

"This is normal right?" I asked.

"Yep Mason can't refuse a dance battle. I guess neither can Clark because from what I know Clark is still upset at Mason," Carter said.

"You know?" I asked.

"I've known for a long time but let the fun begin," Carter said as the dance battle began. After a few minuted Golling and his crew got tired so they forfeited allowing Mason win. The night continued and Mason started drinking a little, but Clark and Xavier were beyond drunk and in a whole other land. Another slow song came on and Mason pulled me onto the dance floor and we started dancing.

After another 4 hours the ball was finished which I was actually happy about because the damn pumps were killing me. After we made sure everyone left we went into the kitchen. 

"I feel like jello," Clark giggled.

"I think I'm a bear," Xavier said.

"I'll help them into their room then I'm crashing out see you tomorrow Mason," Ralfeal said.

"We should get going also but..." Mason as he put his hand on my hip.

"Let's go..." I whimpered and bit my lip. We went into his room and he pushed me against his door locking it.

"I hated this night but this is making up for everything," Mason said and started kissing me. 

Mason took me over to his bed and pushed me down the took over his blazer and shirt and blah blah... you get it. Mason then got back on top of me and started kissing my neck and then reached his hand to the back of my dress and skillfully undid it. Wait how many times has he done this? I also don't feel ready.

"No," I said and sat up.

"What?" Mason asked.

"Mason...How many times have you done this?" I asked.

"I... don't know," Mason said.

"You know what I'm not ready yet Mason. Let's just go to sleep," I said.

"But you were ready a couple seconds ago!" Mason exclaimed.

"No Mason I'm not ready to have sex yet. Cant we just sleep?" I asked.

"Fine... But if this has to do with-" Mason started saying when there was a knock on his door.

"Go," I said and grabbed his shirt.

"What!" Mason snapped.

"We have someone not from this gang in the house, more specifically Sara's room," Ralfeal said.

"Get the-" Mason said.

"NO! DON'T!" I shouted.

"Addy..." Mason said and looked at me.

"Trust me don't," I said.

"....Ok...You heard her leave the person alone," Mason said to Ralfeal.

"Mason let's sleep," I said and pulled him into bed.

"Yeah let's just...sleep," Mason said and put and arm around me.
