Aubrey

The banging at my door is what woke me up. It's not the 'anybody there' knock. No. It's the 'I know your in there, open the fucken door' knock.

I groan into my pillow and get up.

Who the hell is it?!

I take a quick glance at the clock on the stove when I pass by it.

Seven am.

Groaning again, because it's too damn early.

Shit! The fucken neighbors are going to call the cops, if the person who his hitting the door doesn't shut the fuck.

I don't bother checking my peephole.

Well, shit. I should have checked it first.

My body stiffens when I open it and see the person. "Why are you here?" I ask. The sleepiness from a second ago is gone. Tanner, my ex boyfriend, steps into my apartment without permission. "please," I gesture around my apartment. "make yourself at home." I tell him dryly.

"Don't mind if I do." He says. He goes straight to the living room and sits down on my torn up red sofa, then puts his feet up on my coffee table.

"Do you want me to wipe your ass while your making yourself at home too?" I ask, rolling my eyes.

Tanner chuckles. "oh, how I missed you, Bree." I grit my teeth and cross my arms over my chest.

"I don't know why you're here, but I want you out. now!" Of course, yelling at him doesn't affect him. Fucken asshole. His eyes travel down my body slowly. And that's when I realize I'm only wearing a white, see through, shirt without a bra and with my black panties

Tanner sits there looking at me like he wants to rip my clothes off. He licks his lips, and I know full well what that tongue can do.

Oh, Jesus.

"I see that I still have an affect on you, sweet cakes." Tanner says, smirking. Snapping out of my dirty mind I glare at him.

"Sit. We have a lot to discuss." He says, patting the spot next to him.

"We" I say, lifting my eyebrows and pointing back and forth between us. "have nothing to discuss. You broke up with me six months ago. Why you're here, I don't give a shit. I just really want you out of my apartment and out of my life." I feel my hands and body shaking from anger.

How dare he just come back out of nowhere, pretty much demanding we talk?

Tanner stands and walks towards me. I have to look up at him. He's always been tall. Even as kids I would always have to look up.

"I'm..." He thins his lips. He only does that when something bad has happened. "I got myself into...something..." he trails off, avoiding my gaze. I frown and narrow my eyes at him. He closes his eyes. "I need your help. I know I've been an ass. And I deserve for you to treat me the way you are right now." He opens his eyes and looks at me. I can see the regret in them. Funny thing is: it's bullshit. I know all this is just an act to get me to help him.

He grabs my hands. "You're the only one I trust." I move away from him.

"What kind of something?" I ask cautiously.

God, I hope he didn't do what I think he did.

"I, uh," he scratches the back of his head. "Borrowed money from, Adriano Russo. Again." I feel all the blood rush from my face.

You've got to be kidding me.

"You didn't."

"I did." He mumbles.

"Oh, god no." I move far away as I can from him, afraid. "The mafia" I whisper.

I guess you can't avoid them.

Eventually they come back.

They always come back.

He always comes back.
