Only You - Chapter One

By Kim Lina
Trigger/Content warning : may contain vulgar language , matured and sensual scene and scence related to gore.
This book is clearly a figment of my imagination and a work of fiction any resemblance of place, name dead or alive is highly conincidental.

"A little bit to the left and here." Calvin dropped a big box filled with my stuff in the empty room while I held a box shutting the door of the apartment with my leg, I stride over to him and stumbled in the process dropping the box which had a dozen glow in the night light stones.

Calvin helped me up, I retreated to picking up the stones quickly, Calvin helped me pick one up and put it back in the box.

"You still have these? I thought you sold these already." Calvin mocked me while I box up the stones and pushed them away to the other side of the room. "Yes I still have them they help me to feel more at home." I scoffed.

"You'll never change." he teased glancing round the apartment.

I slide my hand down the pockets of my Jeans. "Thanks for coming out of your way to help me settle down you must have a lot on your plate and also work I hope I didn't cause you any inconvenience." I stated.

"Are you kidding when I heard my best friend was moving back to Portland after cutting all connections from me for two years I couldn't say no Mandy is still pissed at you though." he stated but I just chuckled.

Calvin is my best friend or I could say brother ever since we were kidnergardners his mum left him at my parents house for a play date with me when he was 8 and she never came back for him, since then it's been me and him, he's been there for me even my parents divorce he even calls them mom and dad.

As for Mandy she's my best friend too ever since she stuck gum in my hair during Junior high we had some fights until we were both paired for a project we discovered we have so much in common and one of them at the time was we both hate Noemie Peigns, my bitchy cousin.

She's the example of a snooty rich girl.

Noemie once told me the reason my parents divorce was because my mom had me from another man and she's a flirt always wearing short skirts just to impress Calvin who never paid attention to her.

Mandy is a matron in the police force, she hated Terry the first day she met him and advise me to break up with him but I was too busy brainwashed that I thought she hated me because she didn't have a boyfriend.

If only I listened to her I could have dodged a bullet.

"I get why she's pissed, I'll be mad too I quit the force and cut all connections just to move in with some dickhead who I fell over the heels for and imagine spending the rest of our lives together when everyone warned me it was a bad idea." I muttered running my finger through my hair.

"I'm sorry you went through that."

"Don't be I should have known and I should have seen the signs Calvin I was blinded and gave Terry everything and he just brainwashed me I felt so vulnerable even after the miscarriage he kept screaming and yelling at me and cheated on me, I left everything for him what else could I have given him."

Terry is my ex boyfriend and he's a dick, we met at a concert in New York and started seeing each other, I was head over heels for him that I quit my job as a police officer and moved in with him to New York, the first three months were bliss until he forced me to cut all connections with my family and friends which I did, then finally he had full control of me and turned me into his maid and didn't help out.

Later I was pregnant but then he was upset and abused me emotionally, mentally and sometimes physically and then I had a miscarriage it wasn't easy and he was more mad and finally made me feel worthless, I was foolishly telling myself that I loved him, I was depressed and trapped.

I had enough when he cheated on me, he looked me in the eyes and watched me break down but didn't care, he thought I'd stay like always but it took me every will in my body to use my last change at a payphone and called my dad to come get me.

I never want to be that vulnerable again.

"You had a miscarriage? " Calvin asked but my eyes were already wet from tears, he pulled me into a hug like old times sake patting me and I was already at ease, I miss this if I had one of this I could have possibly ended my relationship with Terry long ago.

We both pulled away from the hug, he tussled my hair back revealing my face.

"That shithead doesn't deserve you Quinn, I wish I could kick him in the balls for making you go through that, I'm glad you dumped his ass." he said.

"Are you sure it's wise renting an apartment and also staying alone you could stay with me so I could keep you company and you won't struggle with paying the bills." he offer.

"No thanks I don't want to be a burden." I got up and went unboxing.

"You won't be a burden and you won't be paying rent and you'll be living with your best friend until you get back on your feet." he stated. "No thank you." I mummered taking out my stuff. "How are you going to pay for this apartment you don't have a job remember ?"

I stood up folding my arms. "Mom and Dad cashed up some savings for me it's enough to rent the apartment." I mummered.

"That's not fair how come they gave you money and not me." he feigned a grunt.

"Because they gave birth to me and I'm their favorite." I pouted, everything was quiet and then I mummered. "I'm returning to the force." he looked at me in shock his phone rings he glance over it then puts it back. "You can answer that." I told him but he shook his head.

"It's nothing it's just my girlfriend she didn't buy the idea of me meeting you." he said.

"Does dad know about this? " he asked.

"Mom and Dad knows and they went with it, getting my own apartment was dad's idea I've already spoken to the commissioner and he granted my request of returning to the force." I said.

"Don't you think you need more time to heal returning to the force isn't some child's play it's serious now." Calvin advised.

"I'm being serious I don't want to be home crying or healing because of guy I want to be out there doing what I love and that's helping people staying home and thinking about my life decisions won't do me good Calvin I'll be fine." I said as he just nodded because once I made my mind that is it. "Fine but Mandy is gonna kill you." he said as his phone rings again.

"You can go I'll unpack." I said as he hugged me one last time and left, I locked the door behind me and pressed my back against it sliding to the floor.

I heave a deep breath staring back at my empty apartment everything were still in boxes except for my matress and my suitcase.

My mind goes blank and after a few seconds I slept off.

A few days later, I wore my uniform and locked the door of my apartment I turned to see Calvin.
"What are you doing here? " I asked.

"I came to pick you up you need a ride to work." he stated.

"That's why I'm taking the bus." I argued but he did not listen. "If you want me to trust that going back to the force is a good idea let me drive you to work until you get a car again." Calivin said.

Terry sold my car so I could move in with him in New York, gosh I'm stupid.

"Fine only today." I said as we left the hotel building to his car it was a red small camry.

He drove me to the station like he did when we snuck out and took mom's car to go to a concert out of town when we came back dad would have heard of it and we would be so grounded and had to pay for gas with our pocket money, they should be lucky we didn't scratched the car or got kidnapped.

We stopped in front of the station, I quickly got out and thanked him.

"Oh wait just so you know Noemie knows you're back expect a visit from her." Calvin drove off before I could say anything meaning he told her I was back.

I looked back at the station and a sudden wave of tension washed over me, I wonder how everyone is going to feel when they see me again.

I slowly walked in the station, it was normal no one recognise me I guess and then suddenly one of the officers walked with a cake and a few balloons and a banner fell down.

"Happy birthday Becky.." I read. "Whose Becky? " I asked as everyone showed up and yelled "Welcome back Lieutenant Fields."
they clapped and popped open a champagne some of them hugged me, while some shook me, the commissioner which we usually called Chief pulled me into a hug by the way she's a middle aged woman.

"Sorry about the Banner it was supposed to say welcome back lieutenant Fields but someone was too cheap to buy ink to print." she yelled pulling me into another hug.

Chief isn't like this she's actually tough, when I wanted to resign she was hella mad and disappointed but when I said I wanted to resume she didn't waste time to grant my request.

"Everyone we once lost a soldier but she returned back to us." she said as they cut the cake and poured the champagne, I left their jubilating and went to the medical department.

I knocked on the door. "Come in.." I let myself in to see Mandy she was taking off her gloves and washing her hands I expected her to yell at me or tell me to get out, I was ready.

She walked up to me with tears in her eye pulling me into a hug and started crying.

"Are you not mad at me ?" I sobbed in the hug.

"I'm mad but look at what that bastard did to my best friend you look skinny and your hair has lost his gloss, I should have shot him when he told you to move with him to New York." she whispered as we both pulled away from the hug. "I'm sorry for not listening to you, I wouldn't have gone through that shit I'm back and we can catch up." I said as we both hugged again.

"I hate you.." she sobbed while I giggled. "No you don't." I said as she sat me down.

"You missed a lot everything's changed, Zoe was promoted, she gets to go on missions now with the CIA, I go sometimes and it's scary." she says. "What do you mean Scary? " I asked.

"Recently there have been uprising of gangsters and mobs, they started coming out of the shadows and causing trouble."

"Gangsters and Mobs have always been around aren't they the same robbing of banks and jewelry stores, why would you say uprising? " I said as she shook her head.

"Like I said everything has changed there different gangs and mobs and they are dangerous, a politician was killed last month when he was briefing the public, it was rumoured he had beef with some mob boss or gangs.." she said.

"Politicians are always in danger blaming it on mob boss or gangsters is silly Mandy." I told her.

"It's not, I was chosen to tag on a mission, the mission was about protecting some billionaire, we were required to keep him safe they shot the man after all the security." she said.

"So what is their aim? " I asked.
The door flung wide open. "The Chief request everyone for emergency briefing." an officer came in as Mandy nodded.

She took me by the hand as we both went to the hall room, a few cops gathered some were wearing their uniforms a few were not they were either working for the senior department, the CIA or they were from another agency.

A few of them greeted me with a smile or with a welcome back.

"Quinn, what a surprise after you quit the force you look different." I turned to see Zoe.

"Zoe, how are you? " I asked trying to be polite.

"I'm promoted, it's good to know one of us was serious about her carrier instead of eloping with a douchebag boyfriend." she said coldly I just stared at her silently. "The good news is you didn't get pregnant or else that kid would have had a joke for a mother." her words were like a dagger to my chest, I went limb and all I could think was how irresponsible I was to loose the pregnancy.

"Zoe what is wrong with you? " Mandy was about to loose it but the chief walked in, I had to wipe away some tears before anyone noticed.

"I'm so sorry sweetie." Mandy comforted me but I just shook my head. "No she is right.. " I couldn't utter more as the Chief gained all our attention.

"Zoe take over." Chief said as Zoe stood up the lights were dimmed down and some blueprints stood out in the dark.

"We all know the about the recent uprising of gangsters and mobs recently, but recently there's a new gang they call themselves AXE-L." she started off.

"This gang is notorious, we have reports from the branch in New York that they bombed a warehouse killing 50 people and recently kidnapped Hank Bronze a notorious ex convict who was in hiding then later drugged him to death." she said.

"If Hank Bronze is an ex convict and they killed him aren't they the good guys? " one of the officers asked. "They have no rights to end the life of a criminal without the government approval and they are famous for other notorious crimes, we have an advantage on them and predict their next target but we also have a disadvantage, as infamous as they appear no one has seen the members face to face they are invisible that is their strength they could be anybody."

"The only information we have on them is that they wear masks, face mask, nose mask anything to hide identity."

"That's why no one knows them." I whispered to myself.

"We all must be on guard you can come across them anytime, an investigation has been requested by the vice president and we've chosen a few to investigate we just need Volunteers to back up." a few people put their hands down, I looked round and put mine up, Zoe's eyes met mine.

"Lieutenant Fields put your hand down this is a serious case not some game." Zoe said coldly I glared at her, since when did she start calling me Lieutenant ?

"I am serious I want to help." I stated.

"Quinn my office.. " Chief said as I escorted her back to her office. "Can you believe that Chief ? Zoe making decisions for me and saying I'm not serious." I said.

"She's right, I don't even want you volunteering this is a serious case you need time to think and heal." she said. "Why does everyone say I need time, I don't need time thinking about how I made the biggest mistake of my life I need to be out there helping people and I can't do that if everyone keeps telling me I need time." I lamented.

"Because you do, I know you had a miscarriage and I don't want you stressing yourself." she said.

"My dad told you didn't he, but I'm fine chief I can volunteer if you don't let me start taking up responsibilities and wanted me to heal why did you let me back in? " I ask.

"I didn't want to, your father persisted I take you back in for old time sake because he wants you to be happy and busy but I want you to be safe, you're not volunteering and that's it." she said as she request I leave her alone.

After that I was only allowed to patrol and excluded from anything that had to be dangerous.

I was only excuse to do a night patrol I didn't complain on that it was better than normal patrolling and giving people parking ticket.

I was patrolling the streets and got a call from Calvin I answered it while inspecting the building.

"What do you want? " I whispered.
"so how's your day? " he asked.

"This isn't a great time at the moment I'm doing night patrol, it sucks." I stated.

"You like night patrol."

"I do it's just they gave me the safest street and then I volunteered earlier for an investigation and they turned me down because Chief knew about my miscarriage and worse, dad was the reason I got this job back and Zoe was being a bitch to me I just wish I never met Terry." I stated hearing a groan from a dark corner.

The groan grew louder when I went closer.

"Tommorow we'll talk about... " I didn't hear anything Calvin said I was focused on the strange noise.

"Calvin I have to go." I end the call to explore the corner, I point my flashlight to see a someone he was unconscious and had slight bruises and some blood bleeding from his head.

"Hello.." I echoed to check if he was actually unconscious.

I went over to him, he looked like he got into a fight and was beaten up, I stared at him for a while, then I searched him looking for probably ID card but found none.

He could be a criminal but he had no gun on him and he looks like a responsible citizen, I made up my mind and dragged him back to my apartment.

It took me more than 45 minutes, I placed him on my matress, I went to my bathroom and changed into tank top and jeans.

I got a bowl and a towel cleaning off the traces of blood slowly and plastered where he bled, my hands trailed to his shirt I tugged on to the button yanking it all off.

I blushed when I caught sight of his abbs, I averted my gaze to his face, I bent a bit trying to take of his shirt, I got goosebumps as he breath against me.

Inadvertently his right hand encircled me he forced me down as my figure crashed against him.

I could feel the sound of his heart beat, I quickly got off him and helped him continue taking off his shirt.

I snuck downstairs to use the hotel washing machine and dryer to clean his bloody dress shirt.

I quickly snuck back in my room and folded his shirt next to him, I just laid down on the Cold floor and then I slept off.

The next morning I heard the doorbell ring, I quickly got up rubbing my eyes and went to get the door to see Mandy and Calvin.
"What are you guys doing here so early ?" I questioned.

"Getting you ready for work duh." Mandy said as they both came in.
 "I went on night patrol I don't come in until 10 it's 7 in the morning for God sake." I said and then gasped.

I checked the bathroom and then the kitchen.

"What are you looking for? " Mandy asked.

"I... I. I don't know." I couldn't admit I invited a man I didn't know to my house.

"You look like you've seen a ghost."
 Mandy giggled while I noticed Calvin drop his phone.

He now look like he's seen a ghost.
"Calvin? What happened? " he remained frozen for some time but was then able to look at me.

"Dad's dead."
