Dark Paradise

Audrey has never felt so alone before in her life. Her brothers have abandoned her, her old friends hate her and bully her, and her so-called Aunt abuses her. What could be worse? Oh, yeah. Justin Bieber. He's head of one of the most dangerous gangs in the east side of town, and his life is already at its peak. When they meet, Audrey despises him. But Justin is somewhat fond of the fragile, insecure girl, so he decides to take her under his wing. For the first time in so long, everything seems to be going good for Audrey. But what happens when tensions rise between another local gang, and Audrey is stuck in the middle of it? Will it be a nightmare, or is it just Dark Paradise? © 2013 by beliebervision & SoccerBieber18. All Rights Reserved.


5. Chapter 4

"I'm leaving," Marcy said, spitting out her gum into the trashcan. Audrey watched her with wide eyes. She'd never seen Marcy without gum and it sounded wrong when she spoke again. "I trust you enough to lock up in an hour." 

"I will, I promise." 

"Alright. Bye Amy." Marcy looked back at Audrey one more time, who smiled. She didn't want Marcy to think that she wasn't going to finish her shift. So she stayed in the kitchen until she was sure that Marcy was long gone. 

Audrey quickly tore her apron and name tag off, tossing them on to the ground. She didn't bother with clocking out, because Justin had barged into the kitchen, arms crossed. 

"Coming?" He asked as if he'd expected her to tag along this whole time. Audrey nodded, following him out the door and into the restaurant. All of his gang friends were waiting outside, smoking what looked like weed. Audrey really didn't care, she just hoped that this would be better than anything her Aunt Sara would be doing. 

Justin rubbed the back of his neck--somewhat nervously--before turning to face his friends. He was walking backwards towards his car, Audrey following. She kept her gaze forward, not wanting to see the looks on any of Justin's friend's faces. 

"Hey, guys, I think I'm going to head home tonight." Justin said, making Audrey's heart beat faster. 

"Home? Since when have you been there?" one of them said. 

Justin stopped for a moment to roll his eyes. "I go home almost every night after you all pass out, you know." 

"What about her?" Another one asked. Audrey froze. Justin looked down at her and mouthed something like, don't be scared. 

"Her car, uh broke down. Just giving her a ride home." 

"Whatever you say, lovebirds." one chuckled. Justin groaned, grabbing Audrey lightly by the wrist. She jumped, causing Justin to glance down at her with a look of confusion on his face. 

"What? Hasn't anybody ever touched you before?" 

"Yes." She said quietly. "But nobody's ever touched me gently, like that." 

"Are you saying that people hit y-" 

Audrey shrugged away from his grip and held up her hand. "Don't ask. Please." 

He looked at her. For a moment, their eyes met, and the whole world stopped. But it had happened so quickly, that Audrey thought she had imagined it. A moment later Justin was climbing into the car with Audrey following shortly after. 

The ride wasn't as long as she thought it would be, and Justin's house wasn't actually in some creepy forest like she would've imagined. 

It was in a creepy neighborhood. Which, to be honest, was worse. 

He helped her out of the car, which she thought was an unusual gesture for a guy like him--but she didn't complain. They walked in silence up to Justin's front door, and when they were inside, Audrey couldn't help but gasp. 

His house was actually nice?

"Like what you see?" Justin was now in front of her, smirking. 

She pushed past him into the living room. Beautiful hardwood floors seemed to cover the whole house; from the room she was standing in to the kitchen and through the bedrooms. Justin had come to stand next to her as she looked around. 

"You can, uh, sit down if you want." He said, startling her. Audrey wasn't so used to anybody being nice to her, and she had to admit that she wasn't expecting Justin to be. With one more glance towards him, she nodded her head and proceeded to sit down on the floor. 

Justin looked down at her with a confused expression. "I meant, you can sit on something other than the floor." 

Audrey shrugged. "I'm not usually allowed to sit on furniture. It's either my own bed or the floor." 

Justin's mouth quirked into a frown, before he came around to sit beside her. Audrey couldn't help but smile. Justin opened his mouth as if he were to say something, but all of his gang friends had already barged in and interrupted him. Audrey thought that he was going to get up but he stayed right where he was as his friends climbed onto the couch behind them. 

"This seems like a fun party," one said. 

"If you look closely, there's no party." Justin mumbled under his breath. "But you have all gladly invaded our private conversation." 

Audrey glanced up at the boys behind her, and hoisted herself off the floor. She smiled faintly at Justin, who was getting up as well. "I don't mind. I'm not supposed to be here, anyway. My house isn't too far from here, I could just w-" 

"You can't 'just walk' around here." Justin snapped. "It's not safe. At least let me drive you." 

She hesitated. "A-Alright. My Aunt Sara can't see you though, so try to stay hidden when we get there." 

Justin nodded, and held out his hand. Audrey looked at it with wide eyes. She didn't want to grab his hand when all of his friends were right there. Or do you just not want to grab his hand at all? She thought. 

Audrey reached for it, only to pull away. She looked down at the ground to avoid the six watchful gazes on her, and started walking back to the door. Justin followed behind her, grabbing his keys and jacket as he did. 

She climbed into the Range Rover. Justin did the same, and put the keys into the ignition. He looked over at Audrey, who was buckling her seat belt. She looked up, and their eyes met again. A wave of butterflies flew through Audrey's stomach as Justin started to lean in. She leaned in, too, but quickly leaned back after realizing what was happening. 

"I have to be home soon." She said quietly. 

Justin studied her with a somewhat pained expression. "Is someone hurting you, Audrey?" 

Audrey quickly shook her head. "No," she whispered. "Can you please start driving? I'll show you the way to my house." 

He looked at her one more time, before starting the car, and speeding off down the road.
