Dangerously in Love

I don't know how much more of this I can handle. It's getting way out of hand......but I can't just walk away from it...from him? I'm in love with him. So dangerously in love, and I can never go back......ever.


4. Danger

Oh, God.  Oh, God.  Oh, God.  I'm in real danger now.  I'm going to a murderer's house......where there will be other murderers!  This is probably the worst day of my life!  Man, that'll be something to tell my kids when I'm older.

I couldn't sit still the whole ride.  I was a nervous wreck.  Jason looked over at me and laughed.

Jason - Can't get comfortable?

Me - No, I'm fine...just a little car sick.

I could tell he knew I was lying.  I was praying that he wouldn't hurt me for lying.

Jason - Whatever you say, Shortcake.

This guy is unbelievable.  He seriously needs help.  I just rolled my eyes at his unhealthy personality.

Jason - Hey, don't you ever roll your eyes at me.  You're in my car, got it?

He grabbed my chin vigorously, making me face him.  OK, I was scared now.  All I could do was nod.  I guess he could see the fear in my eyes because he sighed and let go of my face.

Jason - I'm sorry.  I have a short temper.

Yea, no kidding.  So much for not hurting me.  It may not be physically, but I've just been emotionally crushed.  I decided not to say anything I'd regret, so I just looked out the window.  I wanted nothing more than to be in the "safety" of my own bed--where I should've been in the first place.

After what felt like forever, we finally made it to what I presumed was Jason's house.  My mouth dropped open as I looked at the house.  From this angle, the house looked pretty good......on the outside anyway.

While I was waiting, I leaned my head back on the headrest.  I needed some time to think about how my whole life has come together at this point.  I can't be too upset.  I mean, I practically saw this coming.  Ever since my mom left, nothing has been the same.  Out of all the things I could have seen tonight--some drunk guy trying to hit on me, a couple making out in a street corner, walking past a strip club and having the security guard randomly invite me in freely (I act mature for my age)--but no.  I had to see someone getting killed.

The more I think about it, the more I realize that my life is a never ending soap opera.  I was the quiet girl, everyone treated me like crap, my dad has tried to rape me twice, I can't keep track of my grades, but I still managed to take care of myself--minus the cutting and suicides attempts.

I was shy, lonely, and just plain pathetic.  I never did one single very, "bad" thing...until tonight, when I got involved with a bad guy, and now I'm in so much trouble.  Now here I am, sitting in a car with a killer in front of his house.

I think I dozed off a little because I didn't even notice Jason got out of the car until my door opened and I almost fell out.

Jason laughed.  I hate when people laugh at me when I don't do something that's funny.

Me - That's not funny.

Jason - C'mon, it's a little funny.

He shut the door closed behind me and leading the way toward the house.  I rolled my eyes behind his back.  The last thing I needed was to get lost again and have God knows what else happen to me.  Being taken by a murderer was enough to keep me from doing anything more stupid.

The closer we got to the house, the more scared I got.  Who knows what will happen to me once I get in that house?

I hadn't realized Jason already opened the front door and was waiting for me to come in.

Jason - Are you coming in or do I have to drag you in?

God, I hate his stupid mood swings so much.

Me - What?

He just shook his head and grabbed my arm, pulling me inside before shutting the front door.  He turned to look at me.

Jason - Follow me.

Jason led me upstairs.  I was so nervous, so I started fiddling with my fingers while walking upstairs.  I don't want to draw attention to myself by anyone else that was here.  What time is it anyway?

Me - Jason, what time is it?

He walked into what I think was his room.

Jason - Half past two.  Why?

Me - No reason.

Actually, one reason: my dad was gonna kill me.  Most likely he'll be drunk too.

Jason shut the door behind us.  Wow. his room was huge!

Jason - Stay in here until the others come. You can sleep on the floor for the time being.

And with that, he just walked out. Does he really want me to sleep on the floor? Well, I guess it's not too bad. It's carpeted. I'll just rest my eyes for a second.

Jason's POV:

I can't believe what I got myself into. I save a girl's life, kill someone and she sees, and now she's in this house! Sometimes I wonder why I chose this lifestyle.

I walked into Shakyra's room. I only go there when I need to blow off steam or if I need anything from her. She knows that it doesn't mean anything, but she still "helps" any way she can. When I came in, she was in the middle of changing into some pajamas. She was just about to take her shirt off

Shakyra - What?!

I didn't say anything and walked up to her and kissed her. She could tell I was angry, so she immediately took off her shirt. After about fifteen minutes, we ended up in bed with the sheets over our naked bodies. Shakyra was asleep, so it gave me time to sneak out and put my clothes back on.

I walked back into my room and saw Melody lying on the floor. I didn't think she'd take me literally and actually sleep on the floor. I couldn't just let her stay there. I picked her up and put her on my bed. Just as I layed the covers over her, I heard the front door downstairs open.

The oldest guy, Brayden, was the first to say something.

Brayden - Jason! Hey, man!

Brayden was sitting on the couch with a beer in his hand.  Oh god, he was drunk.  This is gonna turn out really bad.

Brayden - Did you get the job done?

Brayden took another sip of his drink.  Would now be a good time to tell him about Melody?

Jason - Yea, it's done.

Maybe I'll tell him later.

Brayden (smirking) - Good job, McAlister.

Well, he's happy for now, but not for long.

Michael - The guy was begging for his life when Jason had him pinned down.  It was hilarious.

Eduardo - It really was.  He really thought he could get away without paying a dime.  That boy was so screwed up, he actually thought he had a chance to live.

Damien - Too bad Jason got to him first.

Well, so far so good.  I hope I can keep this up.

Jason (smirking) - It was a pleasure working with him.

OK, now that everyone's in a good mood, I think it's best that I tell them about Melody.

Jason - Hey, guys?  There's something I gotta tell you.  (Brief pause)  I kind of messed up on the job.

I could tell Brayden was a little confused and getting to a boiling point.

Brayden - What do you mean you messed up?  You killed him right.

Jason - Well, yea...

Michael - So what's the problem?

Jason - Someone saw me.

Silence filled the whole room before Brayden spoke again.

Brayden - What do you mean someone saw you?

Jason - A girl was in the same part of the woods as us.

Brayden - Wait a minute.  You let a girl follow you into the woods?  What is wrong with you, man?!  How could you let this happen?

Jason - I only just met this girl.  How was I supposed to know she's follow me?

Brayden - Oh, I don't know, maybe watch her more closely.

I really hate when he gets like this.  I was just doing my job.  Melody was just in the wrong place at the wrong time.  If I could go back in time, I'd walk her to a nice hotel and stay with her rather than doing my job and committing murder in the woods.  Girls should know to never walk through the woods alone.  Bad things, such as this, could happen.  Brayden always gets like this when something bad happens and he automatically assumes it was my fault.  This time, I am at fault because I was with a girl when I should have been with the guys.

Brayden - Did she seem suspicious in any way?

Jason - No.  I followed her onto the roof of some building.  She was gonna jump over and I stopped her.

Brayden - Why would you do that?

Jason - She was gonna kill herself!

Brayden - That's none of your business.

Jason - You just don't get it.  I may like killing people, but I can't watch someone kill themselves.  I don't roll like that.

Brayden - Well, you're gonna have to if you wanna stay in this house.

Jason - Are you seriously threatening to kick me out?!  If it wasn't for me, you wouldn't even know about this place.

Brayden started to calm down.  Thank God, I don't want any more trouble.

Brayden - How much did she see?

Jason - She saw me kill him.

Brayden - Damn it!  (Running hand through his hair)  What happened after?  Did she run and tell the cops?

Jason - Do you really think we'd still be here if she called the cops?  No, so I took her before she had a chance to run.

Brayden - You took her.  (Jason nods)  With you?

Jason - Yea.  I couldn't let her go after seeing what just happened.  But I don't think she's tell anybody.  I mean, she's kind of vulnerable since she did try to kill herself.

Brayden - Where is she?

Jason - In my room.

Brayden - Does she have her phone?

Jason - Yea, but she has no one to call.

Eduardo - How do you know?

Jason - She told me about her past.  She has an abusive father and brother, and her friends hate her.  Her mother's gone.  She has nowhere else to go.

Brayden - Go make sure she's OK.  I may not like this, but I don't like witnessing people kill themselves either.

Jason - So she can stay here?

Brayden - Yes, but only for a few nights.  Then she has to go.

Jason - Thanks, man.

I ran upstairs before anyone else could say anything.  When I got in my room, I saw Melody sleeping on the floor.  Oh, man, when I told her to sleep there, I didn't mean it literally.  Luckily, I'm a nice bad guy.  I picked her up and laid her on my bed.  I gently took off her shoes so her feet would be comfortable.  She's wearing tight jeans, a leather jacket, and a beautiful v-neck dress shirt, that make her look so sexy and I just wanna--Come on, McAlister.  You barely know her.  Stop being a douche and be a gentleman.  I'm gonna need some clothes for her to change into.

I walked into Shakyra's room for the second time tonight.

Shakyra - Hey, what's up?

Jason - Can I borrow some pajamas for the night?

Shakyra - What for?

Jason - I don't have time to explain, can I just have some please?

Shakyra - OK, just make sure I get them back washed when she's done with them.

She pulled open a drawer and pulled out some clothes handing them to me.

Jason - What makes you think they're for a girl?

Shakyra - I saw you walking her upstairs to your room earlier.  I know you know her.  You even like her too.

Jason - Please, don't tell the guys.  If they find out, they're probably gonna kill her.

Shakyra - Don't worry.  My lips are sealed.  Here's the clothes.

Jason - Thank you, Shakyra.  You're the best.

Shakyra - Yea, yea, whatever.  Just remember you can come to me for any advice.

I walked out of her room and back into mine.  Melody was still sleeping on the bed.  OK, I have to do this without Lil' Jason going wild.  I walked over to her and started with unbuttoning her pants.  I pulled them off smoothly without waking her up.  I slipped the pajama pants on her.  Next came the jacket, then the shirt, which just left her sitting in her bra and the pajama pants.  OK, so from my prior knowledge, girls generally don't sleep in bras and take them off at night before they sleep.  So, I'll just take her bra off from the back that way I don't see her boobs.  I'm actually surprised at how much of a deep sleeper she is.  I managed to take off her bra and slip on the shirt with no problem.

After I was done re-dressing her, I laid her down again on the bed.  I might as well go to sleep too, seeing as how late it is.  I took off my shirt and pants and put on some plaid pajama pants.  I pulled the covers over both of us.  Before laying down.  I looked at Melody.  And when I say looked, I mean admired.  She may be insecure, but I think she's the most beautiful girl I've ever seen.  But a guy like me could never end up with a girl like her.  It's impossible.  I just kissed her cheek, turned off the light and went to sleep.
