Life wasnt always this way.
I had a good childhood, or at least as good as it gets in this story.
Only a mom and dad. No grandparents or aunts or any of that. It was just us three. Until the day my mother stepped onto the wrong side of the street and was engaged in a drive by shooting. I watched from the other side as my happy and bubbly moms life was taken. My dad ran to her and held her. i just stood there. She was gone before I new it.
After that my father couldnt handle living without her and he shot himself in the head as he told me to stay strong and grow up to be stronger then him. I watched both my parents die within 48 hours of eachother. I was only ten.
So dont judge me about the way I live my life. I have to stay strong like my father said. I became this hard shell. Noone could get past the ice walls that were around my heart, if i even have one. I was in a group home after the 8 foster parents I had said they couldnt handle me. School was nothing. It did nothing for me. If i went i was usually kicked out. Once I was out I was usually being brought home in the back of cop cars.
I made all the wrong friends. Made all the wrong chocies. Robbery and grand theft was my first charge when I was 16. I was in juvi for 6 months. I learned alot there. How to hold my own. I had to because I had to be strong and after getting beat up for being new of course Ihad to toughen up and start fighting back.I became the person people new and new not to fuck with. People were scared of me but they also wanted to be me.
After juvi I stayed in group homes. Everyone bowed tome. I was like the queen Bee and if you didnt bow on your own the you were forced bacuse I didnt like not getting the respect I worked for. Gurls envyed me becauseI had guys crawling at my feet with just a smile. And if they went to far they ended up in the hospital wing. Just like Calvin Cleater did.
He didnt crawl at my feet he tried to crawl into my bed in the middle of the night when the gaurds werent paying attention. Wrapped his hands around my mouth and a piece of broken glass to my throat. He almost got what he wanted. But I was better then him. I was stronger. I got him off of me and beat the shit out of him. He was in the hospital wing for a week.
Once I turned 18 the group home was all to pleased to release me into the big bad world on my own. I learned there were people bigger badder and better then me. But that didnt stop me. I lived on the streets. Sleeping under small bridges or on park benches that was until I was found.
The names Evie. I work for a man that goes by Rodrigo. No Im not a prostitute and Rodrigo is not my "pimp". Im not that low in life. Yet.
No he was the man who found me and gave me a roof over my head and food in my mouth. No he wasnt the nicest person but it was better then not having a meal for days on end or sleeping on a park bench in the freezing cold. So i wasnt complaning.
Rodrigo owns seven different clubs. Most are strip clubs and some are just the normal run of the mill party clubs. But theres one inperticular that I help with and thats his drug club. You know that one where you go and buy a shot and make a deal in front of dopped up half or completely naked women. Yep I work there.
Theres only four of us out of his 18 employees like me that get to work this club. Thats me, Dom, Matt, and Quin.
Yes Im the only gurl but thats because Im only one of the few that can handle the types of things you have to see in this business because the things I seen when I was young and the things id been through.
I walked passed the drunk guys ignoring the drugged up strippers and into the VIP room.
"Your late Evie. Why?" Rodrigo didnt turn around in his chair as she came in and plopped down on the VIP couch.
Ipopped open the beer the bartender brought meand took a sip before answering Rodrigo. "Yeah yeah well if you hadnt changeed the meeting three times this week Ida remembered to be here on time."
Rodrigo was silent for a minute before getting up while puffing on his cigar. I dont remember a time in the last three years that ive known him he wasnt puffing on a cigar.
"I have an assignment for you, Evie. Your going to Brazil. There you will recieve my package and deliver it to me. But there is more. You will go alone and come back unalone." He drew out the last word in his thick spanish accent.
"Okay? How am I going alone and coming back unalone? I dont understand, Rodrigo, explain further please." I new Rodrigo appreciated manners and as little as I used them I still tried to sometimes make use of them.
"Ahh see you are going to pick up my package and bring the person who delivers it to you, back to me also. He is coming here to work. Now no more questions I need you to go to the house and inform the boys that they will be training a new member in a week. As well as you need to go and train. This is going to be a hard task and i choose you to do it because you like the challenge but I do hope its not to much for you. Hmmm... Now go pack and train." he sat back in his chair facing the one way mirror to the club watching everyone and making sure nothing was unordinary.
I walked back out into the main club and past the bar a guy whistled "Hey baby why aint you up there shaking that pretty little thing for us also?' He was drunk and slurring his words I just turned and put my hands on my hips showing him the two guns that never left their holester on either side of me unless they were in use or I was in bed, and still they were right there. he put up his hands in surrender and I smiled before walking back outside in the dim street light. It was nearlyten oclock. Rodrigos meeting with the boys had been an hour ago but Iwas caught up dealing with older demons. Rodrigo new little of my past as did everyone else and it was going to stay that way. I got in to mynew camero and started the engine. Feeling the pur beneath my hands at the wheel. I loved driving. I loved racing.That was something everyone new I did on the side.It was one of the feew things that helped me exscape.
I pulled up tothe house and parked my car.I could hear the boys out back on the pool deck. I smiled to myself. This was my family and as much as Rodrigo was a jackass sometimes I loved themall. I walked through the outsidegate.
"Yoooo where has you been Ev? We was hoping youd play a lil beer ponnnnng with uss."Dom through his arm aroundmy shouldermaking me carry most of his weight. He was shit faced.They all were.I laughed and popped open the beer Quin handed me and took a swig.
"So lets play" Looks like Im gonna have to relay Rodrigos message tomorrow.
