Ashley Ridgell I was a simple girl with a simple life; father in the government, mother as a lawyer. My life was pretty good, almost perfect if you could call it that. I refused to leave, to move to another city, but I had to. I couldn't be that bad after all; new school, new friends, new life. It was a star over, at least I thought I had one before one specific boy changed everything. Austin Mahone Annoying, dangerous, but highly attractive; the boy I hated the most, or at least I thought I did. He wasn't the popular guy in school, he was pretty much the opposite; everyone knew him but no one dared to look him in the eye. He was the feared one, and he loved the feeling; power over others, exactly what he wanted. Since the first time I saw him I knew something was off. The people he hung out with, The Crew, weren't very friendly either. Everyone knew about them, about the dark business they dealt with; everyone knew it was better to stay away, but I was stupid enough not to listen. They say things happen for a reason; but what happened to me? That had no reason at all. Just one night, five boys, and one leader. That's all it took to change my life forever.
