[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center Everyone is supposed to have a soulmate. Sometimes it's better to keep to themselves. It wasn't like everything people do makes someone else feel better. There's always something deep inside of a person. Something that makes them feel like they aren't worth the fight anymore. The Pierce siblings all have their own issues. Things have been hard for them, and they don't believe in love anymore. At one point they all felt like they had met the woman of their dreams. That's until they found out what they really had done. Now they don't believe in anything anymore. That is until fate decides to step in, and bring love back into their lives.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center [b Malachi Pierce] is the oldest out of the four boys. He's always trying to have everything under his control. He doesn't care what other's think about him. He's always busting his ass at work, and when he's not at work he's out and about on the town trying to find things to pass the time. Ever since he was little, he was always needing something to keep him busy. Not many people understood that, so when his parents tried sending him to see someone, he threw a huge fit. He wasn't going to be locked inside a room talking about his 'Feelings' to a total stranger. He wasn't the one to open up, and he sure as hell wasn't going to do it to please his parents either, even if it meant they would be proud of him.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center As the years passed, he made a name for himself. He showed the world that he was a strong person, and didn't need anyone to tell him otherwise. He built his own company from the ground up, and he busted his ass day in and day out to keep it going. Even though people told him it wouldn't happen, he knew it would. He wasn't going to give up. People would tell him he needed a woman in his life, when in reality it would only hold him back. He didn't want someone to hold him back, he wanted someone to support him, and the last woman he dated never did that. She was nothing but a lying bitch, and he realized that too late. He promised he wouldn't fall head over heels again, until [b Female One] showed up one day at his office, asking for a job.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center [b Hunter Pierce] is the second oldest in the family. He's also the 'Man Whore'. He would sleep with whatever had legs. He didn't care if it was a male, or a female. He didn't like getting attached to people. It wasn't his style either. He didn't want to get attached to people, because of the fact he always got hurt. He didn't want to wear his heart on his sleeve like his other brothers. He would rater screw someone, and be on his way. He knew people got attached to him, and the moment he found out he cut all ties. He didn't want people getting attached to him at all. He had an image to keep up, even if it meant hurting people at the same time.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center Hunter liked his space. He liked feeling like he could control something. Sometimes it wasn't the best idea to do that, but it was how he was. That's until [b Female Two] randomly pops up into his life. Even though she didn't know anything about him, she could tell there was something special about him. She wanted to get to know him, dig into his mind and see what he was really like. Hunter on the other hand didn't like that. He didn't like how he wanted to see her all of the time. He wanted to keep his distance, because for once he didn't want to hurt anyone. This time he wanted to make something happen, but he didn't know how to do it. He didn't even know if it would be worth it either.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center [b Andrew Pierce] is the second to youngest. He's been with one woman for the past six years. He had planned on asking her to marry him, when he found out she was sleeping with his best friend. He didn't want to believe it at first, but the signs had always been there. When she would draw away from him, not look at him, or even touch him. He knew something was off about her, but he didn't want to believe it. He's always trying to see the good in people. He wore his heart on his sleeve, and he would always put other's before him. The night when he was to pop the question was when everything came out into the open. Scarlett had been sleeping with Wyatt, and she was carrying his baby. It tore Andrew apart. He was planning on spending his whole life with her, but now it's gone.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center He became the kind of man he didn't want to be. He didn't want to trust anyone again. He knew he wouldn't trust anyone, but deep down he wanted the feeling of being loved back. He wanted to feel like he meant something to someone. Even if it meant hurting himself in the end. He didn't like feeling pain, that's why he hardly let those feelings show. He was always trying his best. That's when [b Female Three] pops into his life. She's a whirl wind of personality. She's the kind of person who won't take anyone's shit, and that's what drew him to her. At first he didn't want anything to do with her, because of Scarlett, but he knew he wouldn't be able to move on if he didn't get attached to someone else. It might be a bad idea, but he might as well take a leap, and see where it takes him.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center [b Shawn Pierce] is the baby of the family. He was always spoiled, and he could get away with a lot more shit than his brothers. That's when he met and feel head over heels for an older woman. She had taught him things he wouldn't have been able to learn alone. She was a spit fire, but he knew it wouldn't last. He didn't want to seem like a child, so he made sure to keep his distance most of the time. Sometimes he would get jealous because she was always on the arm of another man. He wanted her, and he wanted her badly. When he told her what he was feeling, she told him he was nothing but a play thing for her. She didn't care about him, and she never would. He was a good lay, and that was it. It tore him apart to hear those words, but it made him realize something, he was worth so much more.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center [b Female Four] had been best friends with Shawn for years. She had kept her feelings to herself, because she didn't want him knowing. She didn't want to get her hopes up, but she wanted him to know how she felt. One night while they were out and about on the town, was when she finally got the guts to tell him. At first Shawn didn't know what to say. He had felt the same way, but he had been too focused on the other woman. He didn't mean to brush his best friend aside, but there was something stirring inside of him. Something he wanted to act upon, but he didn't know how too. He didn't want to scare the woman away, but he didn't want to deal with the heartbreak again either.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center Everything these brothers do will plan out their lives. They can't keep to themselves forever, but sometimes it better that way. Will the women be able to break them out of their shells? Will the brother's find the love they deserve? Will everything fall apart? Or will everything finally come together? You'll never know unless you join, Love & Hate.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center The male hadn't meant to ditch out on the woman, but he had to leave. He had offered her the job, and the moment she had accepted to coming in, he had to leave. He had set out to find someone, and he had. Now all he had to do was get back to work, let the other's know about her coming in and see where it would go from there. He knew it wouldn't be that hard to get a new employee, and he snagged one. A beautiful one at that too. He couldn't help but wonder how she was in bed.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center He shook his head lightly and rolled his eyes. [#8CD1E6 "You are such an ass"] he muttered lightly to himself. He knew he was, and he didn't care either. He would always be an ass, and his brother's would always have his back. As he would always have their's as well. As he was heading back to the office, Nina's face swam in front of his eyes. Her own eyes were charming, and beautiful and those lips of her's, damn he wanted to kiss them and just do everything to make her smile.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center As he came to the office building, he pulled into the parking lot, pulled into his normal spot and shut the car off, he climbed out and headed back inside. He then snapped his fingers the moment h was around people, and he pointed to the main meeting room. [#8CD1E6 "Everyone in there, five minutes"] he called out. Everyone got into motion, as he walked into his own office. He looked out the window and sighed a bit. It was going to be interesting training the woman, if she passed the interview tomorrow.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center He knew she could handle it, but he also wanted to test her. See how far she could take things. He sighed and looked at his watch, it was time to tell everyone about her. He walked into the meeting room and closed the door behind him. He made his way around the table and stood in front of the windows. He crossed his arm's over his chest, and took a breath before speaking. [#8CD1E6 "I just wanted to let all of you know, we will be having an interview tomorrow morning at ten am."] he started out. People started whispering.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center [#8CD1E6 "You will make her feel welcome, and you will direct her towards my office first thing. Now go home and enjoy the rest of your day"] he called out. He watched as everyone left, and he smirked a bit turning and looking out the window behind him.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center The male looked towards her and he broke out into a smile. He shook his head lightly and laughed. [#683B82 "If I was a killer, I wouldn't drive all the way out here to do it. I would want people to watch"] he said with a smirk. Maybe that was a bad thing to say, but he didn't care. He climbed out and walked around the car opening her door. Once she was out, he offered her his arm and then led her towards the cabin. He looked down at her and smirked a bit as he nudged her.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center [#683B82 "My brother's would kill me if I brought someone here just to murder them. We spent too much time building this place up"] he admitted. He bent down and got the hide-a-key and unlocked the door. He pushed it open and led her inside. He then closed the door behind them and looked around. He didn't know if he was ready to talk about what was bothering him or not. Would it be wise to? Or would it be better to keep his mouth shut? It was a battle he didn't know he'd win.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center [#683B82 "So that person I saw, well let's just say he's keeping tabs on me. He doesn't like the fact that his wife left him for another woman. He blames me, because the two of us had been really close friends, and she trusted me with everything. She told me he was beating her, and I told her straight up to leave the bastard, and since then he's been out for blood. He thinks her and I had an affair, when in reality she was turning homosexual, and happy with someone else"] he said with a small shrug.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center He didn't like the man, and the man didn't like him. But the moment he had seen Hunter with someone, he knew he would do some digging around and find something wrong with this woman. He turned and looked the woman dead in her eyes. [#683B82 "I'm sorry for semi dragging you into this.. I know I shouldn't have, but I wanted to get to know you. I'm glad you like the flowers as well, it's something simple to make you smile"] he said as he rubbed the back of his head. He was slightly uncomfortable.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center He wasn't always the romantic type, but when he found someone he liked, he would go to the ends of the earth for her. He cocked his head slightly and smiled. [#683B82 "Hungry?"] he asked as he nodded towards the kitchen.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center The male had been starting to drift off to sleep when his phone started ringing. He picked it up and checked the caller ID it was a number he didn't know. The moment he answered, and heard Sky's voice he smiled. That's when he heard the male in the back ground. [#59A086 "Listen, you keep talking like normal, and don't give anything away I'm heading over there right now"] he said lightly. He could tell something was wrong, by the change in her voice. Yes he was glad she had called, but the unwanted visitor in the background changed her mood.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center He kept the phone plastered to his ear as he flew off the bed, and found his shoes. He slid them on in a hurry and then was out the door. He waved to Shawn and Clarissa and then was out the front door, and back into his car. [#59A086 "I'll be there in five minutes, and I'm glad you called beautiful. I couldn't get your voice out of my head anyway"] he admitted. It was true too. Ever since they kissed, she was all he could think about at the moment. Now he was playing her hero.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center As he headed back to the bar, he made sure to keep it safe enough to drive. He couldn't chance getting pulled over at the moment. As the building came into view, he spoke again. [#59A086 "I'm pulling in now, see you in a minute"] he said. He hung up and swung into the parking lot. He parked his car, climbed out and shut the door behind him. He then spotted Sky and the male behind her. He narrowed his eyes as he walked over to the two. He stood beside the woman and grabbed her waist.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center He pulled her against his side, and kissed her temple. [#59A086 "Hey there beautiful, ready to go home?"] he asked. He could feel the male glaring at him, and he looked over his shoulder at him. He plastered on a smile and then turned them both around. [#59A086 "Come on, my car is right here"] he said as he walked her towards his car. He felt a hand fall onto his shoulder, and he looked towards the male. He was surprised he hadn't heard him move. [b "What are you doing?"] the other hissed.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center [#59A086 "I'm picking Sky up, and taking her home"] he said as he kept his grip on the woman. [b "Take your hands off my girl"] the other hissed. Andrew stood there, and waited for the other to make another move.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center When the woman finally laid down beside him, he turned his head to look at her and he sighed a bit. [#5A80A1 "I'm just tired of the same shit. She lures me in all of the time, and I honestly don't know what to do. It's like she's feeding off the sexual part of the relationship, and she holds it over my head"] he said as he balled his hands into fists. He wasn't about to let her do it again either. He knew himself though, in a couple of days he would be wrapped around her finger again.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center As Clarissa spoke, he looked towards her. He cocked his head to the side and narrowed his eyes at her. She had said the word love, he didn't know if she meant too, but in a way he hoped she had. [#5A80A1 "So what's with the word 'loved' you never said it that way before"] he mentioned. Maybe it wasn't right to point it out, but he was curious. He knew she had been hiding something from him, and he wanted to know what. He was getting tired of this little game they were playing.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center He sat up and turned around so he was facing her head on. He put his hands on his knees and looked at her. [#5A80A1 "Clarissa, I know you've been hiding something from me, and I was hoping you'd come out and say it. I've been keeping it to myself knowing you have been. You are my best friend, so spill it. Please? I need the distraction anyway"] he said as he locked his eyes on her's. He sat there and waited for the other to speak, the silence slowly becoming awkward.]]

[right [pic https://i.imgur.com/daPhqju.jpg]] [center Nina listened to him as he spoke about his company. So, he had brothers, that must have been nice. The job itself seemed pretty simple. And what they were doing sounded great. She smiled softly at him. She glanced down at the plate in front of her, picking lightly st the food.

“Yeah. It doesn’t seem that hard.” She shrugged. If that was really all it took to get a job, why hadn’t she tried such a thing before? Because it never was this easy. But she wouldn’t question it. Instead she watched as he waived over the waitress. Was... was that all? He invited her to eat and he wasn’t going to eat with her?

Nina nodded at his words. “I’ll be there.” She murmured watching as he left. A sigh escaping her lips as he disappeared from view. Nina finished her food before getting up herself and leaving the place.

Oh, just wait until she told Sky or the other girls about this. She could only imagine what they’d say about it. Sky would probably flip, be a little mad the guy had just left her. Nina chuckled at the thought of their words. Yeah, maybe she should see them... either later on or after her interview.]

[left [pic https://i.imgur.com/CUmQmPN.jpg]] [center For her? Emilia smiled softly. He was sweet, really. Blue eyes watched as he glanced from away from her. This was clearly something he was not used to doing, which made it all the more sweet. "Thank you, I really appreciate it." She finally spoke.

She caught the annoyed look in his eyes, the same one he had earlier when people were staring at them in the dinner. Emilia allowed him to help her into the car. She kept quiet for a moment, simply letting him drive off. She knew this was possibly a bad idea, getting in a car with someone she had just met, did not even know at all. Yet, as they reached the freeway, she glanced over to him.

A bit? It was very weird. But, she didn’t mind it too much. She was taking a chance for once, like her friends had told her she should do. “Well, you don’t have to tell me who this person is, unless you want to later on.”

As she listened to his suggestion she raised an eyebrow. A cabin in the woods... “you’re not a serial killer are you?” She questioned him as he finally said that they were at the cabin. Emilia was joking, a little. She was nervous. Who wouldn’t be? She just met the guy and he brought her there, without a full answer from her.]

[right [pic https://i.imgur.com/idCWOCf.jpg]] [center “Gonna tell me what that was all about?” Bud raised an eyebrow as he questioned the girl. Sky shrugged, there was really nothing to say to Bud. She didn’t need to tell him what she did and why she had done so. “You know Jack won’t like it when he finds out.”

“Jack can go fuck himself.” Sky retorted. Jack had no say in what she did. He didn’t own her. And they sure as hell weren’t together. As much as he believed they were when it was convenient to him, they had ended months ago. He was the reason she hardly worked the night shift, so she wouldn’t have to see his face. "You know I like helping others."

"You kissed the guy."
Sky rolled her eyes. "Hey he needed some serious help. And besides, he was cute. Doesn't seem like a terrible guy, just hurt." Granted she hardly knew him, but he needed some fun in his life. And she was always ready for fun.

"Just be careful." Bud mentioned before allowing her to actually leave the bar before Jack would come in for his shift. Aside from that, Sky really wanted to know about Nina's luck with her job hunting. That but to also call Andrew.

The blonde stepped out through the back door, inhaling the cool breeze. She slid her hand into her pocket taking out her phone and the number Andrew had handed to her. She dialed the number, waiting for him to answer.
"Hey, it's Sky the bartender, I just wanted to see if you--"
"Well if it isn't Sky. Haven't seen you in a while, sweet cheeks."

Sky felt her stomach turn as she heard that dreadful voice. Jack... Sky tried to ignore him. “Do you want to meet up sometime? Maybe later or tomorrow?”
She could feel Jack sizzling from a few feet away. But she still tried to ignore him, listening to Andrew’s voice instead.]

[right [pic https://i.imgur.com/QepcsgG.jpg]] [center Clarissa stood by the door, her arms crossed. She could hear one of his brothers enter the house. Yeah, she didn’t blame him for wanting to shut them out at a time like this. Hell, they may have said the same thing she did, but she wasn’t his sibling. And friends always got through to people better than their own family, in some cases. Yes, he was hurt and he was going to hurt for a while. Hell, she was hurt back when she first met Shawn, but just as she did, he’d get over it. He had her after all.

Her eyes shifted over him. He was staring at her, though as his eyes narrowed she knew exactly what he was looking at. That bitch had left a mark over her face. It would go away at some point throughout the day, damn sensitive skin. Clarissa shrugged her shoulders. It was fine, she’d fight for those she loved, her friends. For Shawn… “It’s fine and besides, you deserve way better than her. And you sure as hell don’t need to be sorry. It’s not your fault.”
She listened his words. A stupid male… partially true. most human beings were stupid in general.

Clarissa took a deep breath, enjoying the feeling of his arms wrapped around her. She pulled her arms from his embrace, wrapping them over his shoulders. “You don’t need to change Shawn, you’re fine the way you are. You just need to pick better love interests. Someone who won’t use you.” She murmured as he had finally let go.

Clarissa sat beside him, nudging at his shoulder. He was too quiet. As he laid back, she followed soon after. “You can’t wallow in self pity. In pain. I won’t let you. What kind of person would I be if I let the person I loved deal with such pain alone?”

She paused a moment, realizing what she had just said. ”you know because best friend and all.” She added nervously. Crap, she was screwed. But, maybe he didn’t notice? Hopefully he didn’t notice.]

Today wasn't going to be any different. He slowly looked towards the female, as their plates were placed before them. He leaned back and linked his fingers together. [#8CD1E6 "You will mostly be book keeping. Balancing out the checks, and making sure everyone is getting the right amount's in their checks. The company is small, but it's a good start. It was founded by myself, and my brother's, but they slowly left me in charge"] he stopped and smirked.]]

Sometimes we will travel around the world building homes for families who lost theirs. It's not always the best place to work, but it's something at least."] he stopped and let that sink in. He could go on and on about it too. He had wondered what his parents thought about him now. He sighed lightly and looked down at the plate before him. He wasn't hungry all of a sudden, but he wanted to take it with him at least. He cocked his head and smiled towards her.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center [#8CD1E6 "So what do you say? Do you think you'll be able to handle working for this company?"] he asked her lightly. He put his hands on his stomach, and linked his fingers together. He never offered anyone a place in his company, but he felt like he could trust this woman to do what was needed to be done. He then slowly looked around the small room. Watching the people around him, he wouldn't mind seeing what the other's were capable of. He sighed a bit and looked down at his plate again.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center He waved the waitress down and he got a to-go box for his meal. He then pulled out his card, paid for both of their meals, and he looked towards the woman. [#8CD1E6 "I'm sorry to leave like this, but I do need to get back to what I had been doing. I'm glad you agreed to at least come in for the interview tomorrow. So I will see you in the morning"] he said lightly as he stood, picked up his box and walked out the door. He sighed lightly when he walked out.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center He walked down the street and back towards the park. He found his car, slid inside and started it up. He pulled out of the parking lot, and headed straight home.]]

A beautiful woman deserves beautiful flowers"] he said as he handed them towards her. He then shoved his hands into his pockets, and he looked down at the gravel under his feet. He kicked a rock aside, as he fell silent. He didn't know what to say at the moment.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center He could feel people watching them, and it was making his skin crawl all over again. He hated it when people just stood there and stared for no reason. As he looked up, he realized who was staring at him, and he narrowed his eyes a bit. He gently took the woman's arm, and helped her into the car. He then slid inside behind the wheel and started the car. He backed out of the parking spot and headed towards the freeway. He didn't say anything at the moment, he just needed to put distance behind him.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center When he was safely on the freeway, he looked towards her a small sheepish smile on his face.

I saw someone I didn't quite like, and he was looking at you with pure lust in his eyes"] he said as he looked towards her quickly. He then turned his eyes back to the road, and kept on driving. He sighed a bit as he drove. He didn't know where he was going, but at least there was some distance.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center The male finally thought of a place where they could go. He just hoped she wouldn't think he was trying to bed her or anything. He looked towards her slowly, as he spoke again. [#683B82 "I know this is weird but my family has this small cabin in the woods, and it's the only place I can think of where you and I can be alone. We will not be doing anything but talking, I hope that's okay"] he said as he looked back at the road before him. Pretty soon he was off the freeway.]]

He was thinking about Sky the whole time. The sound of her voice, the taste of her lips, everything about her was perfect pretty much. She was beautiful, and she had pretty much taken matter's into her own hands with his ex.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center He didn't know anyone who would have done that for him. He was pretty much a stranger to her, and yet she helped him out.

He backed out of the parking spot, and headed back towards his home. He didn't know where else to go, and he kinda wanted to take a shower and just relax for the rest of the day.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center He had his feel of drinks, and he knew he would go out later if he didn't hear from the woman. Maybe he could find someone to bed, and that would help take his mind off of everything. He shook his head, and knew that was a bad idea. He felt like if he did that he would be hurting Sky. He didn't know why he felt like that, it wasn't like they were dating or anything. He had just gotten his heart broken, and he had made out with a beautiful woman, and his day was somewhat better.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center As he was driving, he remembered how the woman had tasted. The way she smelled, and the way she had helped him out.

He wasn't in the mood to deal with his siblings at all. He moved back over to the bed and put his head into his hands. [#5A80A1 "I know she was, but it still hurts like hell"] he muttered lightly, keeping his head down.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center Just having the woman with him was making him feel slightly better. He looked up slowly and saw the red mark on her cheek. The male narrowed his eyes and growled slightly. [#5A80A1 "I'm sorry about her smacking you though, you didn't deserve that"] he admitted. She didn't either. She was only helping the male out, and that's all that mattered to him. As she spoke about him being a sweet guy, and that he deserved better he just shook his head.

But she knew the man did not have such a problem because she took the time to know the man. Still she kept quiet. Her hand slid to her lad. Her fist clenching. Nina knew Sky's clothes would give her a false appearance, and at that moment, she really wished she hadn't agreed.

Yet, he cocked his head to the side and spoke. She raised an eyebrow at him. A job. Well, that would help her out. And then she could be able to pay back her friend for all of her help. Tomorrow... oh god, she'd have to ask Sky for help. But it'll be worth it, she could pay her friend back and well, that's all that mattered to her.

Nina listened as he ordered. A full meal... something she hadn't had in such a long time. A warm full meal. She could smell the food others had ordered before lingering as the waitress walked by to bring others their plates.

Interview... at ten. His company.... the place he worked. After what he said, did he really think she'd want to see him? No, but... he was kind to offer her food, take her to his cafe. Maybe she shouldn't have agreed. Besides, should he have asked his.... wait. Was it his company? As in he owned the place?

She wasn't entirely sure how she felt about him. He had already rubbed her the wrong way. Then again, he really didn't know her situation. "Sure, I'll be there." Her eyes caught him. He was studying her, she shivered at the thought.

"This company.... what is it? What do you do and why do you even think offering me a job is a good idea? You don't even know me."]

[left [pic https://i.imgur.com/CUmQmPN.jpg]] [center A smile formed on her face as she heard his voice. They would be able to see one another. She giggled as he said he wouldn’t stop talking about himself which would be fine with her. She really wanted to know about him, who he was, what he did, everything. He was kind, sweet from what she could see. Quiet, but kind.

"Yea, that sounds fine." She murmured just before they said their goodbyes. Quietly, Emilia returned inside. A smile brightly over her face, continuing her days work.

It was amazing how much faster time went when she was excited, yet nervous about who would be picking her up. She enjoyed meeting new people, and well she usually went out in groups, so to actually get to know someone one on one would be quite different.

Once she was done, Emilia untied her apron and placed it in the bucket. She waved her goodbyes before heading out. Though, Emilia stopped as soon as she saw him, waiting there for her. A smile crept on her lips. "Hey," she called out as she reached him.

"You changed, clothes... flowers?" She cocked her head to the side. Emilia wasn't going to assume they were for her, maybe he had plans for said flowers. "They're beautiful."

[right [pic https://i.imgur.com/idCWOCf.jpg]] [center Sky nodded at his words. True, and that the woman would. She made a terrible mistake letting him go. And without really knowing the woman or him for that matter, she already knew the woman would regret her decision eventually. A smile formed upon her lips as he spoke. For someone who had gotten his heartbroken he was pretty forward. Though, sometimes that's what someone needed and well, she didn't mind being that person.

She blinked twice, listening as he swore. She watched as he came around the counter. His hand pulling her against him. Her lips locked to his instantly. Her eyes fluttered shut, savoring the moment. As they pulled away, Sky kept her eyes on him. His sweet gestures making her blush, along with his words. She opened her mouth but before she could speak, Bud cleared his throat.

Sky stifled a laugh, the man was harmless, really. But he was protective over her, all the girls who worked there and that was only one other girl beside her. She gave him a sheepish smile as he dropped his hands from her and moved back.

"I'd like that." Though, he really didn't have to leave. He could have stayed, but after that she was sure he wanted to not be there. Sky took the paper from his hand, watching as he left. A sigh soon escaping her lip. "Would I really?"

Green eyes glanced over the paper countless of times. Maybe she'd call him later in the day. Sky shook her head. Enough of that, she had work to get done. And just the thought of him was making her loose concentration.

The stung spread across her cheek. She really wasn't expecting the woman to smack her across the face. It was quite funny actually. It meant the woman was indeed intimidated by her. She shook her head. No she didn't think Shaw deserved better, she knew he did, there was a difference.

That was a lie. He had her. Clarissa had been there for Shawn ever since they first met two years before. Sure, they didn't really like each other much in the beginning, but all that had changed after a while. And no, she wasn't expecting him to run into her arms. He wouldn't be Shawn if he did that. Shaw would see it one day, hopefully and if not, then that was fine. They'd still be friends.

Clarissa narrowed her eyes at the woman. Yes, Shawn could decide, but how long could he continue to say no to the woman? Still, he surprised her. His words making her proud to the the person who could help him conquer such a dragon. Her eyes were fluffed to him as he swung his bag over his shoulder. The woman threatening him, but he was... collective about it all.

She could feel his hand slide over hers. A smile forming on her lips. She followed him, leaving the woman to scream. She knew he wanted to turn back, but he didn't do it. He was hurting....
Clarissa kept quiet as she got into the car. The drive was silent, but she placed her hand on his as he drove to his place. Shen wasn't going to make anything up to her. No, she'd make him feel better instead.

Clarissa exited the car, following him inside all the way to his bedroom. She sighed as he fell right onto his bed. "I know it hurts... but it's really for the best... you're a sweet guy and she was taking advantage of that."

Nina simply allowed others create their own ideas of her. Still, she found herself smiling in return. She followed him even though she was unsure of where exactly they were headed. She was hoping the place was not too big or crowded. She just needed a place to feel comfortable.

Her story? Nina sighed lightly, shaking her head. No, it definitely wasn’t to make herself feel better. She had given away money her friend had given her for transportation to find a job and instead, she was here with him getting coffee and possibly something to eat, with no money. Did he expect her to pay? She should have thought of that first. “Money doesn’t make anyone feel better whether they have it or give it away.”

As they reached the small cafe, shows honestly relieved. It was a small cozy shop. She instantly inhaled the smell of coffee. Nina followed the man and the waitress to the table. “Thank you,” she smiled to the waitress soon looking over to the man. “Are you not technically throwing your own money away?” She raised an eyebrow at him. “Does it make yourself feel better?” She smirked, teasing him before looking over the menu.

“To be honest, I know how it’s not to have money. I’m actually looking for a job, the money was from a friend. To use it as taxi money to go around and find a job.” Nina shrugged lightly. She glanced up, looking over him. “I’ve never been here before. I’ll get whatever you're having..” Nina closed the menu, leaving back into the booth.

“I don’t suppose you know of any places hiring?” It was wrong to ask him. She didn’t even know him, but he wanted to get to know her which was a start no? And she wasn’t really asking for help, just if he knew of any places. That way she’d have an idea of where to go to actually get a job.

Snapped from the trance of his writing and glanced up at him. She nodded, with a soft smile and returned back to her job.

Emilia could have left. She did not need to stay there with June who clearly was annoyed with her for some odd reason. It wasn’t like Emilia aways sat down with strangers and got their numbers. It was odd. She found herself glancing at the paper from time to time placing it back in her pocket as she reached a couple in their late 50’s, regulars.

“I saw you with that handsome young man, will he be returning to pick you up?” Mrs. Jones questioned with a bright smile.

Emilia blushed lightly and shook her head. “Oh I… I’m not sure. He handed me his number.”

“Then what are you waiting for? A man like that is aware of what he wants. And you are a very special young woman.” Mr. Jones smiled kindly at Emilia. “I’m sure he would be awaiting your call.”

“Just as you did when you gave me yours?”
“That was simply because I was more than aware you would not give me yours.”

Emilia smiled at the two, taking their empty plates. They would sit there for a while and reminisce as they did time and time before. But, they were right. He could have been waiting. But could she really call him then? Oh, she should have told him she would have been off in about an hour. Though, they may ask her to stay longer. Still…

Emilia stepped outside for a moment. She dialed his phone number, allowing it to ring a few times, she was going to hang up until she heard his voice. “It’s Emilia… the waitress from Denny’s you just gave me your number. I’m supposed to be off in about an hour maybe an hour and a half, I should have told you that before you left. If you’d like… maybe you can swing back in an hour? We could hang out a bit more… I could finally hear about you instead of myself talk?”


[right [pic https://i.imgur.com/idCWOCf.jpg]] [center There was something about the way Andrew had kissed her. She felt herself melt into him as his arms wrapped around her, pulling her close to his body. Sky could feel her heart flutter with joy. She enjoyed the taste of his lips, the way his tongue teased at her lower lip. A smile came to her lips as he pulled away. Her eyes staring at him, but she knew he was looking towards another.

It was a fleeting moment. Yet, as he glanced down at her she found herself hopeful? No, it was just a kiss. She felt the warmth of his lips once more, this time on her skin. A kind gesture. He was sweet. What kind of woman would cheat on a man as sweet as him? Sky smiled with a nod, her tongue slipping over her lip as he ran her teeth against it under her top lip.

Sky made her way back over to the bar, her eyes catching the woman. She shrugged instantly ignoring the death stares she was receiving. Grabbing a rag, Sky started to clean the bar table. But as soon as she heard a slap, Sky looked up at the two. Oh, how she wanted to laugh, but she stopped herself from doing so. Instead, she watched the two women leave the bar. Her eyes soon shifting to Andrew.

A smirk spread across her face. “Anytime.” And she meant it, she’d be willing to do that again, kiss him. Make someone jealous for him if needed. “Let me be clear, that’s the first time I ever did anything like that. Don’t think I go around kissing random people.” She shook her head, her eyes on the table as she made circles with the rag.

“If you want my opinion though, looks like she still loves you. Not that I think she deserves another chance. I’m sure she did what she did thinking you’d stay with her and she would have been content probably. I don’t know her so, meh.” Sky shrugged her shoulders, tossing the rag over towards the sink.

“Another drink?” She questioned already reaching for one. “I find it funny that she thought you cheated on her with someone you just met. How’s that even possible?” Sky chuckled, “I must admit though, you are a pretty good kisser.” She winked at him sliding him a beer.

[left [pic https://i.imgur.com/QepcsgG.jpg]] [center So he said. If Clarissa had to walk out of there and he ran after her just to go back to Rosa after… she’d be tempted to kill him. “Whatever you say, Shawn.” First, she would see how things went. Clarissa really wasn’t aware how fed up he was of Rosa just yet, yeah he said it plenty of times but actions spoke louder than words when it came to him.

Still, she followed him to the car, sliding in as he opened the door for her. Brown eyes followed as he walked around the front of the car. He always had the attributes of a gentleman… it was just hard to notice them when he was a complete idiot about her feelings. Then again, she’d never said anything about it in the first place. Her eyes found their way to the window as he backed out and drove.

Once the car had finally stopped, Clarissa glanced over to Shawn. Like she cared if Rosa was home. She shrugged her shoulders in response, waiting for him to get the door. As much as she hated when he got the door for her, she had learned it was better not to argue with him when it came to certain things and this was one of them.

As soon as she got out of the car, she followed him towards the front door, stepping in as he did. Clarissa could hear the sounds, a look of disgust on her face. The woman hadn’t even left her friend and she was sleeping with someone? What was wrong with her? Clarissa followed behind Shawn. Her eyes met with that woman. A smirk crossing her face as Rosa called her a bitch. Oh there was so much she wanted to say, could say, but she kept her mouth shut, satisfied the actual bitch knew Clarissa was possible competition.

Clarissa actually felt bad for the guy she was in bed with. The poor guy could have done so much better than a woman fucking around with a guy she didn’t even really want or need. Clarissa kept close to Shawn standing beside him, helping him. Though as soon as she heard Rosa talk, something snapped in her.

“He’s not going to bed with you.” Clarissa stepped in-between Rosa and Shawn. “Why are you doing this anyways? You have someone in bed already. And that clearing isn’t my friend here, so go run back into bed so Shawn can grab his shit and get out of your life.” She paused a moment but continued on not letting Rosa get a word in.

“He’s not someone you can use just to make yourself feel young. Clearly, you have insecurities scared of getting older maybe? You want a man to make you feel young and alive because you’re afraid to settle so you mess around with Shawn here when you actually want someone older, just like yourself because you have much more in common with them. You're done playing with Shawn. He deserves someone way better than you.”

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center He was making a fool of himself, and he knew it. Why should he bother asking this woman to join him? Did he really want to get to know her? Or was it his way of ignoring the feeling of his own loneliness. Whatever the reason, he was kind of hoping she would say no. He could then head home, take a hot shower and then drown his sorrow's in booze, or in a woman. The thought that crossed his mind just then was a good one, but he had a beautiful woman already at the moment.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center When she finally agreed to getting something to eat, he had about given up on it. He raised a 'brow slightly when she said she wasn't that interesting. [#8CD1E6 "I beg to differ. There is something about you, something that's pulling me in and I don't know what it is. You seem like a mystery, or maybe it's something else. I don't know, but I want to dig into that pretty mind of yours"] he said with a small smile. He offered the woman his arm, and when she took it he led towards the sidewalk.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center There were many different places he could take her, but the only place that was close was the small cafe. It had amazing food, and it was his favorite place to go. Carla's was a family based cafe, and it would hopefully make the woman feel slightly better about being with him. He looked down at her, and cocked his head slightly. [#8CD1E6 "So what's your story. Why do you throw your money away? Is it because you know how it is not to have money, or you do it to make yourself feel better?"] he asked lightly.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center He could tell she was keeping something from him, and he didn't like it. He wanted people to be honesty with him. He might be an asshole, but at least when he cared about someone, he showed it. When Carla's came into view he drew open the door and led the woman inside. A black haired woman looked up, and she raised a brow slightly. The male just shook his head, and she walked over. [b "Welcome to Carla's, I'll show you to a table. You can go over the menu, and then call me over when you are ready"] she said lightly.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center She led them to a table, and the male sat down after he pulled out the other's chair. [#8CD1E6 "It's my treat, so order whatever you want"] he said as he opened his own menu and started going over it. He knew the food here was amazing, but he wanted her to make a choice first, before he made his. He leaned back and looked towards her, trying to figure her out.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center So she did brush it off like it was nothing. If it had been him, he would have said something, or gone to his boss. Then again he wasn't really one to say anything about it. As she was talking, he leaned back and took a couple more bites of the food. He had a feeling he would be seeing her again, and he honestly liked that thought. She was different, she was unique and she was someone he could be really comfortable around. He was about to say something when one of her coworkers came over.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center She had to get back, and he understood that. He nodded lightly, as he watched her a moment longer. [#683B82 "It's a pleasure to meet you, and I will for sure be seeing you again. Before you go though, here's my number if you wanna meet up when you get off work"] he said as he reached for a napkin. He wrote his number down and handed it to the woman. He then paid for his meal, left a tip and stood. The rest of the day was his, and he didn't know what to do with himself at the moment.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center He took one last look at the woman, and he slowly made his way out. He shoved his hands into the pockets of his jeans, and he looked down as he walked. His mind was racing, and he felt like he was short of breath. What was he doing? Was he really letting his guard down around that woman? He barely knew her, and yet he wanted to see her again. He wanted to listen to her speak, watch her eyes, and get to know her. This was strange for him, he wasn't always like this.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center Something was happening to him, and he didn't know what it was. He didn't know what he was doing, and he didn't know if it was the right choice. He kind of wanted to talk to his brother's about it, but he knew they wouldn't understand him anyway. He sighed lightly as he walked down the street, his hands shoved deep into his pockets. He needed a distraction, and he had one but she had to leave. Now he was alone, and he didn't know what to do with himself. He sighed and shook his head lightly.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center [#683B82 "Might as well head home"] he muttered to himself. He turned and walked back the way he had come.

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center Andrew wanted nothing to do with that woman. He had pretty much laid out his feelings, and for what? Just to get his heart shattered, and to pretty much lose hope. He was about to walk out when the door opened and there was Sky. She asked if he trusted her, and he was about to say no when all of a sudden she was kissing him. He was slightly taken back, but when she pulled back and told him to show that he had other options, he knew exactly what to do. He leaned down and kissed her again.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center As the two inched their way out of the bathroom, the door banged shut and they were in the main room once more. The male slid his hands down along her arms, and to her waist. He pulled her against him, slowly trailing his tongue along her lower lip. When he pulled back, he could feel daggers being shot towards him. He looked up slowly, and sure enough she was staring right at them. He could see the pain in her eyes, and the hurt look that crossed her face. In a way it pleased him.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center He looked back down at Sky, and pressed his lips against her forehead, before letting her go. [#59A086 "Get back to work, before you get into trouble"] he said with a small smirk. He saw Star get down off the chair, and she made her way towards him. She shot a death glare to Sky as well, and then she stopped and looked up at the male. She drew her arm back, and slapped him hard across the face. The male stood there and looked down at her. [b "You are horrible"] she hissed at him.]]

It looked like you did some cheating as well. She seemed to know what she was doing, and so did you. You are a fucking bastard"] Star snapped.

He nodded a bit, [#5A80A1 "I'm not going to chicken out, and you aren't going to walk home"] he said as he walked out behind her. He led her to his car, and opened her door.

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center He backed out of the parking spot, and headed towards Rosa's place.

She was his rock, his go to, and most of all the only woman he ever trusted with his secrets. As he drove his mind went else where.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center Not even five minutes later he was pulling into the driveway of Rosa's place, and he shut off the car.

The man she had been screwing sighed and rolled off of her. Rosa flew out of the bed and grabbed a robe. [#5A80A1 "She's helping me get my things"] was all he said as he walked over to the closet.

[right [pic https://i.imgur.com/daPhqju.jpg]] [center Maybe he was right. The man may have not used the money, he could have saved it or used it for other things. But he had a choice to make with that money, just as she did.. And maybe that man would do the right thing and get those kids some food or warmer clothes for the night. He had something to look forward to, unlike a lonesome woman like her with no where to go and no one to go back to… Half true, at least she had her friends, even if they didn’t know her situation.

Nina kept her eyes to the ground, that is until he spoke. She blinked twice, was he for real? Her eyes shifted over him, her eyes catching his. She knew that look in his eyes. She had seen it a more than a few times before. Dinner or coffee. Nina didn’t even know the guy. Hell, he could leave her head on the side of a road and all trace of her would be gone!

Ok, so maybe she was exaggerating just a little. Still, he was a stranger. As she was about to open her mouth, he stood. Her eyes followed, trailing over him. He had money, she could tell by the way he looked, even in those jeans and t-shirt. Coffee, get to know one another… Nina wanted to say no, she really wasn’t interested in getting to know someone when she’d have to lie to him in the end, or at least not talk about herself. Yet, a smile formed upon her lips because of the way he looked at her.

Nina stood, taking his arm. “I promise you I’m not that interesting Malachi, but lucky for you, I’m a little hungry.” It was the truth, her stomach was grumbling. It had been a few hours since she had anything in her stomach. Nina could enjoy this… what ever this may have been for a while and then, then she’d leave.]

[left [pic https://i.imgur.com/CUmQmPN.jpg]] [center Emilia watching glanced over him with a smile as he explained why he was there. That was understandable, she was the same way. Sort of, mostly in school. She was more of a nerd, someone who enjoyed studying instead of partying and making a large group of friends. Emilia smiled as he said he didn’t mind her company and called her beautiful. Hunter Pierce. “It’s nice to meet you too.” Emilia glanced back down at her own food, eating a few bites. She stopped as she heard hm speak.

“Most stare.” Emilia shrugged slightly. “The bold ones don’t even try to hit on me, the kind of just go for the touching.” Emilia sighed slightly, “And to be honest, a lot of people who come here have families, a spouse, a relationship, which makes it worse.” She giggled, there really wasn’t much she could do. If she had, it would cause a scene and well, she didn’t want that to happen a second time. So she always let it go and pretended she didn’t feel a hand over her waist or brush across her behind.

Emilia took a sip from her juice. “I work her because I’d rather not have my parents pay for my own studies to pursue my career. And I like working with others and helping out around here. They really need the help, so may as well help right?” Emilia glanced around, watching as people turned their heads as if they weren’t just staring at them. “What about you? Any work, any women trying or succeeding to capture your attention?” Emilia propped her elbow on the table and pressed her chin against her palm.

"Isn't your break over?" June interrupted, Emilia instantly glanced over to the woman. A sheepish smile over her face.

“I don’t think…” Her eyes trailed over to the clock. Seemed as though fifteen minutes wasn’t enough time at all. “Oh, sorry. I’ll be right there.” Emilia stood from the table. Her eyes shifting to the man at the table. “I’m sorry. I should really get back. It was nice meeting you Hunter… Maybe I’ll see you again?”]

[right [pic https://i.imgur.com/idCWOCf.jpg]] [center Sky rolled her eyes. She already told him, it was apart of her job, everyone treated her like shit. They were all assholes. But she ignored his question. There was no need to really answer him. He had bared his thoughts with her, his problems, how could she not be nice after he had to deal with someone cheating and breaking his heart? Besides, he was pretty handsome. And if she had said any of that he’d think she was feeling petty for him, but she wasn’t. This place was for people to feel free, to let loose and be themselves, be honest.

The blonde woman smiled at him. “Nice to meet you as well, Andrew.” Her eyes shifted as she heard a some more customers walk in. She noted the woman’s look, as if she’d seen a ghost, no maybe she was scared or… Sky glanced over Andrew, the male’s eyes narrowed just before he walked away. Was… was that her? Sky opened her mouth, she wanted to grab his arm tell him to wait, but he had run off. Sky walked over towards the women at the end of the bar. “What can I get you ladies?” She smiled kindly, making their drinks as swiftly as possible. Sky listened in on the obvious suspect who started talking.

“He came over and picked up the last of his stuff. And now he’s here. Maybe we should go.”
“At least have one drink with me, she’s already making them. Then we can go, besides, he’ll probably hid in the bathroom the entire time.”
“He basically said he still loves me… even after..”

“Here you both are.” The blonde returned and handed the women the drinks. Sky glanced over to where Andrew had been sitting. Oh if that was indeed his plan, Sky wouldn’t let that happen. He needed to show this woman he had other options. “I’ll be right back, gotta go check up on others around here.”

Sky headed over to the mens bathroom. Her hands pushing the door open. Green eyes fell upon the male who was about to walk out. A smile was plastered over the woman’s face. “You’re putting your trust in me right?” She raised a ‘brow. Her hand reached out taking his. She pulled him enough to feel the warmth of his body against her. She draped her arms around his neck and pressed her lips to his. She pulled apart from his lips slowly, her eyes staring at his. “You have other options, show her that.” She whispered softly, leaning back in, Sky pressed her lips to his again. She stepped back, inching them out of the bathroom.]

[left [pic https://i.imgur.com/QepcsgG.jpg]] [center Clarissa ignored his words. Yes sure, maybe he was right about the look thing because hell, she had the same problem with him. Every time he gave her a look, she’d cave. Clarissa could never deny Shawn. But, that didn’t mean she was a mindless person crawling for his needs. Besides, if it ever meant a her best friend over a guy, she’d choose her best friend, hands down.

Cuddle up and watch a movie… is that what she wanted, to be around Shawn after he got his shit from that bitch’s house? Kind of, not really. But her friend needed her, so she wouldn’t deny him. Not now… she wasn’t him who always disappeared on her.

She glanced over towards him as he sighed. And there it was… that look she couldn’t deny. He was so cute. [i Damnit Clare get your heart under control.] Clarissa shook her head. He said this every time. He was sorry, knew he hurt her. Oh, if only he really knew how much he hurt her and why it hurt so much.

“Oh don’t worry Shawnie, you’ll make it up to me… for years to come.” She gave him an evil smile. “And I swear to God if you chicken out, I’m leaving you there. Don’t care if I have to walk home. I’ll be gone and this our friendship that we’ve had for years will be damaged. Too damaged for even your cute little smile to fix.” Clarissa started forward out the store. She really hoped it wouldn’t come to that… because all hell would probably break loose.

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center When she said to put his trust in her, that's just what he was going to do. He leaned back a bit and ran a hand over his face. [#59A086 "Thank you, I don't know what else to say but that"] he said with a small smile. Maybe it would be a good idea to do just that, trust the woman. She was beautiful, and she was kind. He wasn't used to that.

He didn't want to have her take him home later either. He looked around the bar and saw some women walking in. He narrowed his eyes when he saw who one of them was. The woman froze and lowered her eyes.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center [#59A086 "Excuse me"] he said lightly and pushed himself away from the bar. He wasn't about to deal with her, and he didn't even want her coming over and talking to him. He made his way to the back restrooms, and slipped into the men's room. He walked over to the sink, leaned his hands against the counter top and sighed a bit. He was a total fool for even being here. He shouldn't dump his issues on someone else, yet he was. He sighed and looked down, taking a couple deep breath's before walking back out.]]

[right [pic https://i.imgur.com/daPhqju.jpg]] [center A shame, indeed. That she had never seen him before today. Still, she sat there beside him. It had been a while since she had the company of a man… just sitting beside him reminded her of that. Nina shrugged the thought from her mind. It was better to not think of such things like that. Especially after the last time, being kicked out with no place to go wasn’t a fun idea. Nina would much rather not stay somewhere for the night, unfamiliar to her and get a little cozy.

Others never realized just how good they had it.

“Nina Snow, pleasure.” She looked over to him. “You seem like a very quiet man Malachi Pierce.” It was a compliment, to her it meant he was careful with his words, though she could see he had a possible temper he’d try to control. “I should apologize for butting into your space.”

It wasn’t necessarily his space. This was an open space for anyone really. Still, it was rude for her to just come up and disturb him. He was probably a busy man with a busy life, trying to think things through.

She needed to stop trying to read him or make up his life story in her head. Her eyes stared out, watching as the people passed by. She recognized a homeless man sitting on the ground. A sign beside him and a cup in front. Nina had seen him every once in a while. He was always with two children, covering them the only jacket he had during the winter days.

He fought to keep his kids, even if he knew they deserved something better than living on the streets. But, he was doing all he could for them. He didn’t just desert them. They knew they had a father, a family… Nina stood from the swing and walked over. Reaching into her pocket, she took out the money Sky had forced on her to take a cab or bus to find more jobs to interview for. But, this man… he needed it more than she did.

“He has children waiting for him.” Nina murmured as she returned back to the swing, noticing Malachi was still there.]

[left [pic https://i.imgur.com/CUmQmPN.jpg]] [center Emilia giggled, of course, he hadn’t. Rarely anyone came by alone. And when they did, there was always a reason, or they were simply waiting for the person to arrive. Still, although she knew he wouldn’t mind, either way, it was nice of him to offer. And so, she decided to accept it.

Emilia grabbed her plate and her cup of juice. She slid into the chair placing the plate and cup down. “Thank you,” She murmured before she looked down at her plate and began to eat. Blue eyes trailed up over towards him.

“I’ve never seen you here before. We usually have regulars. It’s nice to see a fresh face every once in a while.” There was that, but he also did not look like the usual people who would come around he was… well, handsome of course. That was obvious by the way most of the others, customers and waitresses watched him.

Emilia glanced back down at her plate, remembering how he reacted when another woman stared at him. He was probably having a little bit of a rough start to his day. “I’m Emilia..” She paused a moment, “But you already knew that.” Embarrassment flushed over her cheeks.

“Don’t mean to pry, but of all places to clear your head, you choose a dinner and not something… so crowded, why’s that?”]

[right [pic https://i.imgur.com/idCWOCf.jpg]] [center Sky raised an eyebrow at the man. She was tempted to ask if he was having a bad day, but that was obvious. She wasn’t going to fuel his anger, as much as part of her wanted to laugh at him for taking it out on her.

Though, she was used to such hostility. That was why some came to drink, to drown their pain. Sky walked away momentarily, grabbing a small shot glass and a liquor bottle, some rum might do them both good. She brought it back over and pulled herself one shot, downing it down just as quick.

She cocked her head, a soft smile on her face. It was the first time any customer had ever apologized for snapping at her or being rude. They were always too into their feelings to snap from it. The poor guy must have been really hurt.

“Savannah, but my friends call me Sky.” She poured him a shot and handed it over. “I get yelled at all the time, part of the business.” She shrugged. Sky was quiet for a moment, watching him before she spoke again. “Cheating.. well, that was just an excuse to get you to leave.” Sky shook her head.

“Look on the bright side, you won’t have to deal with her anymore. If she wasn’t woman enough to just tell you she wasn’t interested anymore before things got too deep, then she’s not worth your pain. It sucks, but it’ll get better, eventually. And in the meantime, you got me… I’ll take care of you. Get you in that right state of mind, not to shit faced that you can’t get back home though.” She smiled kindly at him.

“Put your faith in something and someone else for this afternoon. Promise not to cheat you out, and those are on the house.” She grabbed a beer, popping the top open and handing it to him. “Next one isn’t free.” Sky winked at him before walking a few feet away to clean the glass cups that sat in the sink.]

[left [pic https://i.imgur.com/QepcsgG.jpg]] [center A dick? Just a dick, oh no, he was far worse than that. An asshole was more like it. Clarissa shook her head. Oh no, he couldn’t use that on her. It wouldn’t work not this time. Yet, as her eyes traveled over his face, she couldn’t help but roll her eyes.

Did he have to have such a charm?

Clarissa simply nodded her head. Yes, she had heard this plenty of times before. Rosa wanted to see others, but still using Shawn, and Shawn letting her. She knew the feeling all too well of wanting to shake him senseless so he could see her, Clarissa. The one person who was always there for him, even when he fucked up. She had so much to say, so much she wanted to say but couldn’t bring them to her lips.

Instead, she listened. Wait… what? Clarissa let go of the book she was reaching for. She turned her full attention to him.

“So, you’re telling me you haven’t talked to me because she hates it?” Clarissa groaned. “For Christ sakes Shawn. You’re a man! Act like one. Why are you letting her dictate your life when she doesn’t even love you. She’s been using you! And you, you’re so blind that you let her.”

He was so stupid, why the hell did she like him? Why? Clarissa took a deep breath. ”You know, we both know you’re not really done with her.” She shook her head. “But, when you actually are, maybe we can finally go back to being friends.” Clarissa walked away or was beginning to. She halted and turned back around. She could tell him then, explain it to him… or yell that she really did like him. But instead, she sighed.

“I’m sorry. But don’t you think it hurts me to see my best friend falling over some chick who’s just been using him?” Clarissa couldn’t look at him, but she headed back towards him, reaching for his hand, she tugged at it.

“I’ll help you get your stuff from her place. Since she hates me that much, it’ll tick her off to see us together grabbing all your shit out.” She smirked deviously at him.]

Nina shook her head as she left an apparent end building alongside a blonde haired female. "I already told you, I'm fine. Why you feel the need to check up on me is crazy."

"We're friends, don't care if I miss the bus to work. Besides, you had been wearing that outfit for two days now." The blonde haired girl, Sky shook her head.

"Maybe I just don't care about what I wear."

"Or you're lying. Either way, I don't take no for an answer, you know this. So keep them."

Nina sighed, Sky was right, there was no point in arguing. The girl always got her way some how. And Nina, well it was about time she changed her clothes and took a shower, but the water at the shelter she'd been staying at was no longer working.

Maybe she should try her luck at a job. It was the next best thing. She couldn't continue those little one time jobs at banquets. She needed a stable job. Nina needed to be able to afford a place, pay back her friend for all the clothes Sky kept loaning her.

Though, who'd ever want a homeless orphan?

No one, that was who.

Nina strolled through the streets, finding her way at some point to the park. She sat on a bench, her eyes spotting a family, walking. A daughter, hand in hand with her mother and father.

Nina shook her head, there was no need to think about what she never had growing up. She had to think about how, where it would get her tomorrow. Nina stood from the bench and headed towards another section. There she spotted a man.... a man completely out of place. He did not look like someone who should even be at a park. He was dressed in a suit, yet he sat pushing himself on the swings.

"A grown man sitting on a swing... I'm not gonna lie, you look extremely silly and out of place." Nina smiled, chuckling just a little bit.

She walked closer to him, sitting on the other swing right beside him. "I come here a lot too, it's a good place to think. Drown out all of the bad and just clear my mind..." she trailed off her eyes drifting to the sky.

"Order up."
A smile was plastered on the face of the young brunette. Her fingers pulled the hot plates over her hand. She kept her gaze forward as she turned, walking over to the woman who sat alongside her child. "Here you are ma'am. Enjoy." She placed the plates in front of the two before leaving and heading over towards her next table.

"Welcome to Dennys' my name's Emilia, I'll be taking care of you today. I'll give you some time to look at the menu and then I'll take your order." She smiled at the man. She could feel his eyes, but she ignored the fact.

Emilia was stared at constantly. Not only by customers, but by her own co-workers. She was tempted to leave, but she loved working with others, helping others. Besides, she didn't have the heart to quit she couldn't just leave the job when she knew they still needed more people.

Emilia returned to the man, taking his order and leaving once more. Emilia continued her rounds, going back to her customers, making sure they had everything they needed.

"Have you taken a break yet?"

"Huh?" Emilia spun around only to see one of the managers giving her a stern look.
"I've been busy with all the customers coming in."

"Go take a break. I'll handle them for now."

Emilia nodded. There was no arguing with June, she never let anyone go without a break. And that was fine with Emilia, she'd forget if someone didn't remind her. Without another word, Emilia walked behind the counter, grabbing a plate she had one of the chefs made more her earlier in the day.

She sat alone, taking a deep breath. Her eyes staring out the window. She could hear her manager speaking with one of her customers. Emilia hadn't even realized how close she sat until she glanced up, blue eyes noticing the man who sat alone. Emilia gave him a small shy smile before staring down at her food. She wasn't really that hungry. She was used to skipping meals and then eating after she got home.

"Did you really come here just to sit alone and eat?" She asked him from across the tables.

[right [pic https://i.imgur.com/idCWOCf.jpg]]
Ok, so maybe she was a little late to work again, but hey! At least it wasn't too busy right? Her boss wouldn't mind much... and it wasn't like she meant to be late again, but she had to take the bus since she gave the car for her mom to use.

The blonde pushed through the doors, an apologetic smirk over her face as her manager stood at the bar, eyes narrowed. He was tired, he was never there that early, which meant someone must have called out. A sigh escaped her lips as she rushed to the back. Sky tied her blonde locked up into a ponytail before wrapping a black apron she found around her waist.

The blonde made her way around to the front. Her manager, Bud, staring her right in the eyes. "I had to give my mom the car, bus was late." Sky gave him those eyes, the ones he could never resist. She had charm, one that didn't go over very well with the other women who worked there, but it worked wonders with the men, especially Bud, for some reason.

"It's fine, try to be on time for your next shift. Can't keep passing it off."

"I know Bud, I'm sorry. I'll try I really will." She smiled kindly to him.

The two turned watching as a man walked through the doors. Odd, it was too early for customers. This place was usually dead up until late in the afternoon, but it wasn't even five.

Sky smiled brightly as the man sat down, ordering his drinks, but not really looking around or at her. Odd. Very odd. She took in his sight; the brown hair, the dull look in his eyes.

She'd make him feel better, she thought to herself. Sky grabbed a cold one from the fridge below, popping the top off and handing it to him. "Care to share? What's got a guy like you so down in the dumps?"

He didn't want to talk, she could tell that much. Well, if he didn't want to talk, maybe she could say something, do something to cheer him up no?

"You shouldn't be drinking alone, so how's about this.... I'll drink with you." It was common, for her and the other bartenders to drink with their customers. She just wouldn't drink a lot. Sure, she disliked drunks, those who couldn't handle their liquor. But this guy... he didn't seem to much of an alcoholic, just down in the gutter.

[left [pic https://i.imgur.com/QepcsgG.jpg]]
Best friends... oh yes, some best friends they were. Shawn hadn't spoken to her in weeks! He was so busy, caught up with Rosa, again. How many times had she told him it wasn't a good idea? More than she wanted.

Part of her wondered if he was stupid, out of his mind. The guy had told her constantly about how Rosa messed around with him but wanted to see and date other men. There was nothing wrong with Shawn. Hell, the woman was lucky he even wanted to be around her.


[i "Clarissa, what are you doing? Will you meet me at the mall? Rosa and I got into it, and I need a friend right now.]

He always needed a friend when he and Rosa got into it. Though, would he be done this time? Clarissa sighed as she read over the text again, then back to the notebook, a paper filled with a list of everything she needed to buy.

No. She wouldn't meet him, wouldn't text him. He needed to realize Clarissa wouldn't always be there if he continued to push her away like he did. It hurt, his actions, words, the way he'd talk about other woman... how... how he never even thought that maybe she saw him as someone special...

God, how stupid Shawn was.

[i If you do show up, I'm going to be in the book store. Need some new sketch books, and books for school.]

How stupid was she?

Clarissa found herself at the mall. Her strawberry blonde hair pulled away from her face by a blue fabric headband. She was dressed in a pair of blue jeans and a white shirt, tied on the left side, exposing just a little bit of skin. She walked into the store, instantly catching her friend looking through the different books.

"You're lucky I love you Pierce." She rolled her eyes, placing her hands upon her hips. "You know a lot of people wouldn't tolerate such treatment from a friend." Clarissa stood beside him, searching herself for the books she needed for her own classes. "So, what happened this time?"

[#8CD1E6 "Good afternoon Prime Minister Jones. How can I help you?"] he asked. He knew he was laying it on thick, but at the moment he didn't care. He wanted to get this phone call over with. The Prime Minister wasn't always that willing to talk. He sighed lightly as he leaned back into the chair. [u "I'm just wondering why you haven't taken any of my calls until today."] he snapped, making the man wince slightly.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center [#8CD1E6 "I've been dealing with a lot as of late. As you remember my parents just passed away, and everything at the office has been eating my time up."]]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center [u "I'm sorry about the loss of your parents, and I don't believe the office can take up that much of your time. When are you coming to Rome? We need your business here more than ever."]]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center [#8CD1E6 "I've been thinking about that a lot lately, and as of right now, I don't think I'll be coming out there anytime soon. The business here needs me, and I can't just up and leave like I wanted too"]]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center [u "Or is that your way of saying you aren't coming period? You've been getting everyone's hopes up over here. You need to pack your things, and leave in the week. I'm booking your flight right now, and I will not take a no any longer"] click... Malachi just sat there, the phone beeping in his ear. What the hell just happened? He sighed lightly placing the phone down. Did that really just happen? He sighed as he rubbed his face a bit.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center He didn't know how to even bring this up to his brother's. He didn't want to leave, but he had no choice in the matter now. He stood and gathered up his things. [#8CD1E6 "Heather, I'm leaving for the afternoon. I'm not taking any phone calls at home, so please make sure everyone know's that"] he said, as he walked out of the office. [i "I'll try too, have a good rest of the day"] the woman called. He nodded lightly as he made his way to the parking garage.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center He walked to his car, slid inside and started it up. He pulled out of the parking spot, and headed towards the park. He didn't know what to even do now. As he drove his mind went back to the phone call he had. He knew he had to let his brother's know, but right now he had to gather his thoughts. He pulled into the parking lot of the park, parked his car and climbed out. He then moved over to the play ground and sat on a swing. He started pushing himself back and forth.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center This was going to be a long ass day, and it still wasn't over yet.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center Hunter let out a small moan as he rolled over and felt another body against his side. A small smile passed over his lips, as he wrapped his arms around the slender waist. He pulled the woman against his chest, and buried his nose into his hair. He took a deep breath and sighed again. [#683B82 "It's time to wake up"] he said lightly. A small moan passed though the woman's lips as she rolled onto her side, and locked her eyes on his. [b "Do we really have to?"] she whined, as she tangled herself around him.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center She managed to flip him onto his back, and she was on top of him. They were both nude, and the night before had been amazing. The pleasure, the sounds she made. He didn't even remember her name either. [#683B82 "Yes we kinda do. I have to get home before my brother's freak out on me"] he admitted. The woman shook her head lightly, as she leaned down and pressed her lips against his. She pulled back and giggled a little. [b "Do you really have too? You can stay here in bed all day"] she offered.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center The offer was tempting, but he knew he couldn't. He sighed lightly as he drew her down and kissed her again. [#683B82 "I can't stay, I have to go"] he said as he lifted her up and off of him. He then climbed out of the bed, and found his clothes. The woman sighed and rolled her eyes. [b "Honestly, if you walk out that door right now you will never see me again"] she snapped. Damn, she was demanding. Hunter looked over his shoulder and shrugged a bit as he got dressed.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center [#683B82 "Honestly, I don't care if I ever see you again. I only wanted you for the sex, and I got what I wanted. So it's time for me to leave"] he said with a smirk. The hurt look on her face was enough for him. He grabbed his shoes, sat on the edge of the bed to put them on. When he tied them, he stood and pulled his shirt on. [b "Is that really how you treat every woman you sleep with? Like she's a fucking whore?"] she snapped as she wrapped the sheet around herself.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center [#683B82 "No this isn't how I always treat them. I'm always gone the night of. I never wake up beside a woman, because that's just how I roll. Honestly, because you are such a whiner it's making me feel sick to my stomach. That's why I'm leaving"] he snapped back. The woman grabbed a vase off the side table, and threw it at him. He ducked it, flipped her off and walked out of the room. [b "You are a fucking man whore!"] she screamed at his back. That made the male smirk even more.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center The male knew he was a man whore, and he didn't need her yelling that at him to remind him. He wanted to turn around and smack her. He was somewhat a gentleman though. He would never raise a hand to a woman. He wasn't like all of those other assholes in the world. He sighed a bit as he opened the front door, and walked out of the apartment. He was kind of regretting even staying as long as he did. He walked down the hall, and out the front door. He found his car, unlocked it and climbed inside.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center He started the car and pulled out of the parking spot. He then got his bearings, and then headed towards the highway. He didn't realize he had come out this far. He smirked a bit wondering if the woman had her car or not. If she didn't, she was shit outta luck on that one. He shook his head lightly and headed back home. He would need to make a stop and get something to eat though. He needed to gather his thoughts, and really think about what's happening with his life.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center He laughed at himself, as he rolled down the windows, turned up the volume and just let himself drive. He didn't know if it would be worth going home. He shook his head, as he let the drive take his mind off of things. Pretty soon he was at his turn off, and he pulled into the parking lot of a Denny's. He shut the car off, climbed out and went inside. He got a table, and a waitress gave him a menu. He looked her up and down and smirked a bit. Maybe she would be his tonight.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center He wasn't in the mood to really think about that. He looked the menu over, placed his order, and then leaned back against the booth. He put his hands on his stomach, and waited for his food to arrive. His mind did go back to the woman he had slept with she was a spit fire, but he was glad he didn't have to deal with her anymore. He looked around the small place, and people watched as he waited for his food.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center Boxes were everywhere. It was moving day, and it was the last thing Andrew wanted at the moment. He had just gotten his heart shattered by the one person he thought wouldn't want to hurt him. He had given the woman six years of his life, and for what? Just to have his heart ripped out, stomped on, and to find out she had been cheating on him all along. He had been so blind, that he didn't even want to believe the signs he had been seeing. He shook his head and looked up when the front door opened.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center [b "Andrew? Are you here?"] Star called out. Andrew sighed, and looked back into the box he was working on. [#59A086 "I'm in our bedroom"] he called back. He knew he should change his wording, but he didn't care. Not anymore. This was still their room, and she still had his heart. There wasn't a day that wouldn't go by, that he wouldn't miss her. [b "I thought you would have been gone by now"] she said as she walked into the room, a couple coffee's in her hands. She walked over and handed him a cup.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center [#59A086 "I figured I'd get all my shit out"] he said as he took the cup. She smiled lightly, as she sat down on the bed. [b "That's how you always are though. Wanting to get things done"] she said lightly. That's when the silence washed over them. She lifted the cup to her lips, and then looked around the room. [b "It's going to be weird when this place sells"] she breathed. That made Andrew's heart skip a beat. She really was thinking about selling the place, and he didn't blame her.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center [#59A086 "It'll be sad, but it just means that you'll be able to fuck anyone you want, anywhere you want"]]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center [b "Will you please not be like that? I told you how sorry I was.. What more do you want me to say?"]]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center [#59A086 "Oh I don't know. That you are done sleeping around, and that you want to work on things with us. We were supposed to be making our family"]]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center [b "Andrew, things change. People change, and so do feelings. I didn't want to hurt you, but I knew if I didn't tell you, it would hurt you even more. I'm not in love with you anymore. We jumped into things when we were still in high school, and I knew it wasn't going to work"]]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center [#59A086 "It honestly feels like you didn't want it to work. You weren't home, and when you were, it felt like you weren't. So just because we were together in High School, doesn't mean it wouldn't have worked. You just didn't want to work on shit"]]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center [b "Andrew please.. This is hard on us both. I do care about you, but I won't be in love with you again"] she said lightly. That's when they both fell silent again. Andrew just sat there, and he shook his head. [#59A086 "You are wrong"] he breathed. He then placed the cup on the side table, taped up the box, and then he was ready to go. He didn't even say anything else to her. There wasn't anything to say. He was tired of the abuse from her, the lies, and the fact she didn't love him, tore him apart.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center [b "Andrew, please say something. I don't want to leave things like this"] she pleaded with him. He shook his head, as he looked back towards her. [#59A086 "There's nothing more to say. You made up your mind, and are so willing to let someone who loves you more than anyone go. What should I say?"] he snapped. He bent down and picked up the boxes and carried them out of the bedroom. He only had three boxes total, and that was it. Everything else of his had been moved out during the week. He didn't need anything more.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center Star on the other hand, just sat there. She shook her head lightly and looked down at her hands in her lap. [b "I guess you are right"] she said lightly. Andrew didn't say anything more as he walked down the hallway, and out the front door. He took his things to the beat up truck, and placed them in the bed. He then climbed into the drivers seat, started the truck and looked back towards the house. This was the last time he would ever see it. He cocked his head, when he saw Star standing there.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center He hoped she would realize what she had done. That she lost the one person who loved her, and that she would be hurt in the end. He shook his head lightly as he pulled away from the curb, and headed into town. His brother's were expecting him home soon, so he stopped at a bar, parked in a spot and walked inside. He might as well get shit faced drunk. No one would even care. He walked over to the counter, took a seat and ordered a couple drinks.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center He hoped that these would numb the pain in his heart, and he hoped that he could find another woman sometime soon, but right now he just needed the drinks and the pain to leave his heart.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center [b "Shawn? Can you come in here please?"] the sound of Rosa's voice sent shivers down Shawn's body. She was beautiful, had legs for days, and she was at least ten years older than he was. He sighed as he dropped his sketch pad down, and stood. [#5A80A1 "What is it Rosa?"] he asked as he walked to the bedroom. She was laying on the bed wearing close to nothing. He took one look at her, and he nearly attacked her, and pleased her till she screamed. That would have been a good idea, but he stayed where he was.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center [b "I need you to help me choose what to wear tonight. Daniel is taking me out to dinner, and out on the town"]]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center [#5A80A1 "Why the hell do you need me to help you with that? You know how I feel about you going out with other men"]]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center [b "Oh Shawn darling, you and I aren't really a thing. You are too young for me. Yes you are amazing in bed, but that's all you will be to me. I don't need someone like you, I need a man like Daniel"]]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center [#5A80A1 "Then why keep me around? Why keep me for the bedroom romp? If that's all I am to you, then why don't you let me go and you can have whomever you want"]]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center [b "Do you really think that Shawn? Or darling, you are free to leave whenever you want too. I'm not stopping you"] she said lightly as she looked up towards him. Her eyes drew him in, and it made him weak. That's all he would ever be to her. Just a good fuck, and that's it.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center He shook his head lightly, as he turned and walked out of the room. [b "Where are you going?"] she called as she scrambled off the bed and ran out of the room. [b "You can't leave me. You know you'll be nothing without me. It's because of me, you've become the man you are today"] she cooed lightly. Shawn spun around, and glared at her. [#5A80A1 "Yeah, you might have taught me a couple things, but that doesn't matter. I'm done being your sex toy"] he snapped, seeing the look of pain in her eyes.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center He gathered up his sketch pad and pencils. He put them into his back pack, and then he was ready to go. He gave her the bird, and walked out of the house. He didn't need her anymore. The person he needed was Clarissa though. He needed his best friend. He pulled out his phone, scrolled to her number and sent her a text. [#5A80A1 [i Clarissa, what are you doing? Will you meet me at the mall? Rosa and I got into it, and I need a friend right now.]]]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center He read the message over a couple times, and then hit send. He didn't care if it sounded like he was begging. He needed his best friend. He walked to his beetle and threw his things inside. He climbed in, started up the car and pulled away from the curb. He turned on his Skillet CD, and headed to the mall. He didn't want to go home yet. It was still early in the day, and he just needed some alone time. He would bring everything up to his brother's later. Then again they had their own issues to deal with.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center The moment that the mall came into view he pulled into the parking lot, parked under some trees and then took the long walk inside. The walk helped clear his head a little bit, and then he pulled out his phone to see if Carter had messaged him back. Nothing yet. He sighed a bit, as he sent her another message. [#5A80A1 [i If you do show up, I'm going to be in the book store. Need some new sketch books, and books for school.]] and hit send. He slid his phone back into his pocket.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center He walked towards the bookstore and went inside. One of the workers smiled as he walked in. [i "If you need anything, please come and ask"] she called. The male nodded lightly as he went straight to where he needed to be. He started scanning the books he was needing, and then pretty soon he had two sketch books. He then went to find the ones he needed for classes on Monday. He sighed lightly wondering if Carter would even show her face or not. He wouldn't blame her if she didn't. He had been brushing her off.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [center He shook his head at himself, and then went back to looking though the books trying to find the ones he needed.]]
