"Questa non è una questione cazzo scherzando! E 'uno psicopatico completo che va a cercare di ucciderti per arrivare a noi!" Now I was damn thinking about murdering Don. Now was not the time to joke around.
"Hey, come on Nika, we'll go find your twin brothers." Danny suggested. Ha, good luck with that. Wait a minute- aha! He walked with me away from Lee and Don, who I was about one smartass comment away from black and blueing. "Calm down, Nika. We know he can be a smartass but he was trying to lighten up the situation." He kissed me softly and damn I was reassured. I smiled as he pulled away.
"So, we really gonna find Antonio e Primo or was that just an excuse?" I asked, kind of hoping it wasn't just an excuse. Half hoping, half not hoping. If that makes sense. Never mind.
"We kind of are. But I want to ask you a question first?" Aww, this is so sweet. I nodded smiling. "Would you be my girlfriend?" Aww, damn he looked adorable. Damn my weakness of hot men. Damn. Damnity damn. Damnation. I pulled him closer to me, lips crashing against mine, hoping that would answer his question.
"Now let's find my brothers." We went back to the station, explained a brief version of events to Mac and we start the search for my brothers. Parole officers deny me access to anything. Say I may not be their sister. Bullshit. Anyway, 2 hours in and after god knows how many 'I give the hell up' montages, I get a call from Lee saying back up has arrived and boy have I never been so excited to see i miei migliori amici. I grabbed Danny's jacket and personally pulled and pushed him to the car. "Move. Move. Move." I drove to the airport like Lee drives which is like a bat straight outta hell. She would so call me a hypocrite if she saw my driving.
"Niks!" Calleigh near enough screeched. She ran over to me and started cutting off the blood flow. Well, she wasn't really. But it sure damn felt like it.
"Calleigh. Squishing. Cutting off air supply here. " I managed to gasp out, as I looked around for help, I saw Jesse, Nat and -Ryan. Damn. I hadn't seen him in a while and I wasn't planning to see him till I went down for Christmas with me Ma where I would pop down to the lab to see everyone. I had cleverly managed to avoid him since, which Lee has decided to confront me about numerous times. She let go and I took in air and plenty of it. "Jeez, chica. I know you're strong, but that's woah! Jeez." She smiled sheepishly. "I'm loving who the back up is. When ya want someone dead, only send the best." I smiled. And I could not have wished for a better moment for my phone to start ringing. "Carter." I never check the caller id, never know why. I walked off a little to answer.
"Dude, check the id next time." Angel. Oh getting shot is not screwing him over. He's still screwing me over instead." Anyway, I may have a lead on Dickhead."
"We talking bout you or Knight here?" I could not resist that remark.
"Ha ha. Hilarious, Niks. " I certainly thought so. "Anyway, he just sent an email to me, Antonio and Primo saying to stay out of the little showdown thing he's got going on. He says not to help or he'll go on a killing spree." Great.
"This guy has got eyes and ears everywhere. He knows about Don and Danny and we only met them earlier today. Have you heard from Antonio and Primo, Dante?" Okay, now I'm sucking up to my brother. He always said, he always liked his middle name better so when you wanted to butter him up, call him Dante. Easy peasy lemon squeezy.
"Nikita, as much as I want to, I can't tell you where they are. But they know you know about them. They will pay a visit to you soon, va bene? So, non essere un idiota e sbattere la porta in faccia." Damn it.
"Ha ha. Jackass. The one time and I was pissed off. But, enough of i vostri insulti meschini, fratello. Ora, dimmi di questo cavo, si pensa di avere." Ha ha bitch. I accidentally slammed the door in his face once when I was pissed and I'm not regretting it.
"Anyway, sorellina. I managed to get a trace on Knight's email. And it came up with a phone number. So phone email managed to give the dude away. I managed to put a trace on that phone. Not the number, the actual phone itself. Its in the battery and undetectable." I knew making Angel take that IT Course was a damn good idea.
"Betchya ya don't regret taking that course now Tech Boy." I smiled. I am a genius. " So where is he, assuming he hasn't lost his phone."
"Well it's kinda sketchy right now, cuz it's only been up for a half hour." Typical. Damn brother."But I can keep track on his records. Meaning texts and phone calls." I take that back.
"Right, well he said he was going to find me. If I switch on my tracker, keep an eye on him. He works fast Angel. He'll do something in the next two days. I just know this trick." I looked over to the crew who were all talking happily except for one. Ryan. He's still pissed. I haven't seen or talked to him since I broke things off.
"Yeah, I know him too. Look, I better get going. Turn on ya tracker and tenere al sicuro Nika." Ryan walked over to me, unbeknownst to most of the group except for Lee who was standing by for help.
"Anche tu, Angel, ti voglio bene fratello." I hung up the phone and sighed, tapping my Ed Hardy cased Iphone against my forehead. "What, Ryan?" I remembered I had to turn on my tracker so I unlocked my phone and turned it on and waited for Ryan to speak. This would be interesting.
"Explain something to me." I looked him right in his chocolate brown eyes which once I had loved. I motioned for him to continue. Which, after a while he did. "Why have you suddenly started to avoid me?" Damn it. I hate answering these questions.
"Because. I just needed some time to think things through. I broke it off for a reason you know." Ryan just looked at me, almost slipping into the puppy dog pout which he knew would make me putty in his hands. "I told you the reason why when you asked me." He just stared at me blankly, before sighing.
"You broke it off because I went on one date with Nat." I sighed, he didn't understand.
"Ryan, you're not seeing it from my point of view. What would you do if you saw me, I don't mean this in any way offensively, going on a date with Jesse? You'd say I was cheating on you and break it off. I broke up with you to save us both the heartache. More me than you. I loved you, Ryan. I know you went on the date as friends, but when Nat says that she slept with you, I don't know who to believe. I wanted to believe you but that wasn't an easy decision. I stopped it going any further before we broke the others' heart. Cuz you know I retailiate to any wrongs. You know that, Ryan." I sure do know how to pick them.
"I get that, honestly I do. I still want you in my life. If you can't be my girlfriend, maybe a friend. We can wipe the slate clean. I still want you in my life Nikayla." Oh come on! How the hell in the name of God can I resist that? You can't, that's how. That's a really adorable thing that he says. Nikayla. Such a cute name. I love that name. I sighed in defeat and I could tell the smile on Ryan's face was there. Damn it.
"Goddamn that cute little speech of yours. Fine. Just, please, save the heartache and cut out the flirting, kay?" I smiled whole heartedly, hoping he hadn't taken that the wrong way. He smiled at me and hugged me. I hugged back, missing my best guy friend, well tied with Jesse. That was before the whole boyfriend-girlfriend thing. "Let's go back to the crew." We ended up talking for hours, when it was late enough, we got the Miami crew to a hotel close to me and Lee's place. When we drove back to our place, I could think of nothing better than jumping on the couch and staying there. Forever. We just talked about good college stories and our drunken parties which were like every night even if we had exams the next morning. "I'm in the mood for a hot chocolate."
"Why?" Lee asked, almost laughing, I always asked for something at the most randomest times.
"I have no idea. Just fancy one. You did pack it, didn't you?" I asked, looking at Lee quizzingly. She always forgot something. Lee nodded. I had an idea. I smiled, not evilly just innocently.
"Uh-oh. That smirk means you're conspiring." Lee guessed. I pouted. So much for the innocent look.
"Why is that a bad thing?" Don asked, seriously not getting how evil I can be.
"Because, it normally involves me and a camera or a video. Either one is terrible cuz she can and will hold both over me." I smiled directly at Lee. "Oh no. No. No. No. No. No."
"What? I didn't say anything!" I questioned in mock innocence.
"You don't have to, I just know what goes on in your head. No." I pouted as Lee went all Ma on me. She was trying to resist the pout. Fair dos.
"Damn it. " Try again later. When we got to our apartment, we kissed the boys goodnight and while Lee went to the kitchen, I took my opportunity and jumped on the couch, face first into the few pillows we had on this couch. "I love this couch." Mumbled into the pillow.
"What?" I turned face up so I looked at the ceiling.
"I said, I love this couch. You do realise, I was only going to show the boys a couple of our performances, y'know." I sat up as she handed me my hot chocolate. "Hmmm, chocolate, comfy pillows. Life is so good right now." I leant back into the pillows waiting for Lee to cave. 3...2...
"I'll get the boys." I smiled and went to get changed into my Ed Hardy PJs. Yes, I love Ed Hardy gear. End of. 2 shade striped grey top with tattoo print down the side and butterfly shorts. My lucky anklets, a Ed Hardy silver skull charm on my left and how ironic- a golden latched handcuff on my right. Which accentuated my 'Female Boss' tattoo on my right ankle. Basically, made it look so awesome. Well, awesomer. Ha ha bitches! I grabbed my Ed Hardy Skinned Notebook and my gym bag of years worth of movies. I laid my notebook on the wooden coffee table and the gym bag on the floor. I opened my notebook and checked my emails. 5 from the Miami Crew. 1 from Angel. 1 from Ma. I would reply to them later but I left my emails open so I could keep an eye on any incoming emails. Just another thing of mine. I looked up to see the boys walking in with snacks and a jokey pissed off (She was pissed at caving, I assume) Lee who walked to her painted door before stopping to talk to me. "Seriously got to teach me to resist that pout. Soon."
"Never. Ever." I plopped the bag of movies on top of the table. "Boys, pick your victim. Me or Lee." Lee rushed back in, in her pjs as we waited for them to answer, me smiling, cuz I'm not really ashamed of any of my videos but Lee has plenty. This would be a funny night.
