Dan's POV

The blazing fluorescent lights glimmered down on my skin as I leant back on the bar and took in everyone around me. This bar brought so many different types of people to it and I watched them all drink and dance till morning. At first this bar was just a building to make money but then I started coming here more often and it was my escape. My escape from my life and the killing and the shooting and the overall struggle of trying to do my job.

However the one person who was my biggest escape wasn't here.

Eve.

This girl who walked into my life nearly two months ago and turned it completely upside down. I thought I knew who I was before I meet her. I thought my whole life was all planned out but she came and changed it all with one look at me. I haven't felt this way about a girl in forever, it's weird and so unlike me that my mind might explode.

She think she's changed in the last couple of months but I don't think she realises quite how much. When she first came here she was absolutely terrified and was weak. Now she's not afraid to stand up to the toughest of men. I admire her in so many ways its unreal.

At first I felt nothing towards but just thought she was some hot girl who was completely under my control. I exploited her kissing her against my will and that was the moment everything changed I just hadn't realised it yet. When she slapped me it showed her strong fearless character and that was what emotionally attracted me to her.

Her touch affected me down to the core. Whenever her skin touched mine it electrified something in me which I haven't felt in a long time. And her lips. I had to kiss her at every opportune moment as she was the most beautiful girl I have ever seen. The night in my room keeps playing in my head. How her gorgeous body looked underneath mine and her skin felt beneath my lips. I wanted that to happen again, I needed that to happen again. I don't think I can wait much longer.

With these thoughts swimming around my head I looked around for her once again. She just said she was going to the toilet. How long could she be? Patience was not one of my best qualities so I decided to go and look for her myself. I pushed past the sweaty bodies of people grinding on each other and made my way to the back of the club where the ladies toilets were.

My anxiety was growing in the pit of my stomach but I pushed it down trying to ignore it. If anything had happened to her I wouldn't forgive myself. She said she didn't feel well and maybe it was the drinks that made her that way.

And then the reason she felt ill came to me. At first it was hazy and then the fog cleared and I flung the bathroom door open and ran inside. My heart was racing in my chest as I nearly slipped over on the floor looking frantically around in every direction. My hands started to shake and I don't know if it was because I was scared or angry.

"Eve!" I yelled as I pushed open every cubicle door so hard that they slammed open. I spun around until I saw my own reflection in the mirror and realised what a failure I was.

"Fuck!" I shouted as I punched my hand against the bathroom mirror making a small crack appear in it.

"Fuck, fuck, fuck" I cursed loudly walking back and forth as I felt the bile rise in my throat. I tugged at the ends of my hair. The images of a drugged Eve, locked up somewhere and being abused tortured my mind. All I could see was her body was bruises across it and tears running down her face as groups of men cornered her. My hand throbbed from the pain as I had probably sprained it but nothing could compare to the pain I felt coursing through my blood. I needed to get to her and now. She was mine and they were going to pay for what they did.
