“How do I know if you’re genuine? You could be fake as fuck right now, and bad mouthin’ me when you have her alone.” He looks at me with confusion and annoyance. ”Look, I just call it like I see it,” I say and shrug. I take a large gulp of coffee and damn near burn my tongue off. I choke that shit down though. I will not look weak in any aspect in front of this blonde-haired brute.
“I’m here to help you and to protect Avery. I have no reason to be misleading. I will simply say what I think to your face. Clearly I am not scared of you.” He nods toward my cheek where I have a dark bruise from the fight we got into.
“Yes and clearly I am not scared of your ass either,” I reply and nod toward his forehead. It’s where the cut is right above his eyebrow, from one of my punches. I may not be the biggest guy around but I’m not going to let anyone think they intimidate me. It’s probably stupid. I know Nikoli could seriously kick my ass, most likely. Being in the club life though, you learn to stand up for yourself and not take any shit.
“Very good. Then we move past. I won’t speak of it again.” I nod my acceptance of the mutually agreed to terms we just reached. I catch him talking shit and stirrin’ up stuff with me and Shorty, then it’s fuckin’ on like Donkey Kong.
