“Keep it on, little bit.”

She ignored me. I grabbed her hands stopping her.

“I mean it. If you take it off, not only will people get hurt, but I will punish you later for you disobedience.”

She struggled to get her hands back but I wasn’t giving them up. “Look, I don’t know who you are, but you better let me go. Now.” She narrowed her eyes on me. She looked damn cute.

“I’m yours. You’re mine. I’ll let you go if you promise not to take the jumper off.”

“You are not mine. And I most certainly am not yours.”

“You are mine, and I swear to God if any other man sees that red lacey bra, I will ring their fucking neck. Keep the jumper on.” I let her go.

She placed her hands on her hips and tried to stare me down, but she was no match for me. “Fine. I’ll leave it on.” She backed away before turning and almost running to the office.

I made my way to the office taking a shortcut through the hall. I came up behind her as she received her late note. I watched her fill it in, grinning when I saw her write her name, Jade Black.

I now had a name to look into. As she left, I held her arm. “I’ll see you later, little bit. If I don’t see you at recess, I’ll find you at lunch.” She tugged on her arm and I let her go, piercing her with my stare so she knew I meant business.

I filled out my own late note and as I walked to class, I pulled out my phone and called my cousin, Zeck, he was amazing with computers. He could hack into anything, and he could find things about people they didn’t even know about themselves.

“Hey, cous. What up?

“I found her.”

“Holy shit. Congrats, man.”

“Thanks. I need you to find out about her. Her name is Jade Black. She just moved to Reed Creek.”

“Sure, give me a couple of hours and I’ll get back to you.”

“Thanks.” I hung up and went to my first class, probably grinning like a loon.



Cassie smiled as soon as I walked into class. I handed the late note to the teacher and went and sat next to her. “Whose jumper?”

I shrugged. “Some wanker who knocked into me and made me fall on my arse.” I didn’t tell her about his delusion of thinking he could tell me what to do and I was his. Ha, I don’t belong to anyone but myself.

Cassie nodded and the teacher spoke louder, gaining our attention. I could tell she was eager to ask more questions. It didn’t mean I would answer them. I’d been at Reed Creek High for almost two weeks and become very close with Cassie, she was a force to be reckoned with. I couldn’t help but fall in love with her and she became a new best friend.

I couldn’t stop thinking of the wanker. I tried not to breathe in too deep, his jumper smelled of expensive vanilla and coco scented cologne. I’d seen him get out of the new jeep because the idiot had driven by me and splashed a puddle all over me. I’d been going over to his car to yell at him when he got out of the car and I realized how huge he was. It took me a moment to figure out he was a student at the school. He was well over six foot, and built like a body builder. He was unnatural for what she guessed to be an eighteen-year-old boy. I mean what eighteen-year-old looked like he could bench press a tiny car and not break a sweat. When I looked up I almost forgot to breathe, he was gorgeous. I thought Derick, who this week hadn’t left me alone, was hot. This guy was God-like. With jet-black hair that fell perfectly just past his eyes, making me want to go up and brush it to the side. His skin had a light tan.

When I saw him I decided not to confront him and I turned tail and bolted to the school, only to be plowed down by him. What made everything worse was when I stared up at him the beautiful boy had the most amazing ocean blue eyes and friggin' dimples. He looked like he belonged on a poster on every teenage girl’s wall. My heart stopped. And then I started feeling cold. I gained control of my raging hormones and got pissed off. The idiot didn’t even offer to help me up, let alone apologize for knocking me over.

My anger rose again at just the thought of the stupid boy. I didn’t even want to think about how much more he pissed me off when we got into the school. I looked down at the jumper and went to lift it off me, but for some reason I glanced around the room and remembered his words. I shrugged and then sighed, I’d keep it on, but only because I was cold.

When the class finished Cassie yanked me out of the classroom chatting away. “Come stay at my house tonight. Tomorrow night there is a huge party out at the Silverman house, and for once I’m invited.”
