Original Author: Avery Law

Kyle sat in her car, dreading the start of her shift at the bar. She knew the shift was going to be nothing but drunk idiots, but she needed the job. She needed to help her brother clean up his life.

He got involved in some shady shit, and her goal was to help him clear up his debt so he could move on with his life.

She felt like it was her fault that he fell into a wrong crowd. After all he mostly raised her and didn’t know how to provide for the two of them.

She got out of the car and headed toward the bar. The bar was already packed, which meant she wouldn’t have time for a breather. She went to the back and clocked in.

“I hope you’re ready for tonight, there’s a bachelor party here, and they’re already rowdy,” Jess warned Kyle as she clocked out.

Since Jess was leaving, it meant Kyle would have that party. Jess was one of the waitresses that she got along with.

Jess was trying to pay her way through college, she knew what she wanted to do with her life, and Kyle was jealous of that.

“Don’t let them disrespect you. Put your foot down if they get rude or handsy.” Jess chided her.

“I’ll try, but you know they never listen,” Kyle yelled at Jess as she walked away.

She was always intimidated by people. Kyle didn’t get out much. She went to work and went home. This wasn’t her ideal job, but she needed to help her brother.

He tried to take care of her after their mother’s death, but he was never good with money.


The majority of his men were already drunk by the time Max showed up at the bar. Andrei was getting married in a few weeks, and the guys couldn’t wait to use it as an excuse to party.

As Max approached the table, a cute brunette was waiting on them.

He recognized her from a photo he had, but the picture didn’t do her justice. He thought she was beautiful and knew he could have fun with her if he brought her home.

“Is there anything I can get you, sir?” Kyle asked him.

“Just surprise me with something you have on tap,” Max responded.

“All right, if you guys need anything else, my name is Kyle, and I’ll be your waitress for the rest of the night.”

Before Kyle walked away, one of the guys made a rude comment and tried to grab her.

“How about you strip for us, pretty little girl.” Of course, Sev would be the first one to be inconsiderate. Sev couldn’t control himself once he had too much to drink.

“Cut it out, Sev. Show the girl some respect.” Sev looked at him with a glare but knew not to test him, and Max was thankful; he didn’t feel like disciplining one of his guys on a night of celebration.

“I’m sorry about him. He’s drunk.” Max told her.

“Don’t worry about it. It happens all the time,” Kyle responded as she walked away.

Max didn’t know why, but it made him angry to know that guys disrespected her. He didn’t want her to have that kind of attention unless it was from him.

Kyle couldn’t believe that he stood up for her, that he apologized for the way his friend was behaving. Maybe tonight wouldn’t be so bad, she thought to herself.

She thought the guy who apologized was attractive.

His dark hair a little messy, the wind-blown look really works on him with the stubble he has going on. He had a bit of an accent, but she couldn’t pinpoint it; most of them had a slight accent.

She went back to the bar and put the drink orders into the system, and while she waited for the drinks to be completed, she kept her eyes on the man that spoke up for her while attending to her other tables.

The bar was always understaffed, so she had to make sure to keep moving so no one could complain, and moving around forced her to not linger too much in the area that she would glance at every once in a while.

She headed back to the bar to grab the tray of drinks and walked over to the bachelor party. She started sitting them down one by one when her waist was grabbed by someone and pulled into a lap.

“Come on, pretty lady, just give us a small show.” The man, she remembered as Sev, tried to pull down her shirt. She fought back and dumped the rest of the drinks on him.

“You BITCH!” Sev stood up and raised his fist, and Kyle knew she couldn’t do anything but prepare for the blow, so she closed her eyes and waited for it, but it never came.

The same man that spoke up earlier was standing in front of her, twisting Sev’s arm.

“I told you to knock it off, and you didn’t listen,” Max said. “Mike and Jason teach him a lesson.”

Max turned to Kyle. “Are you ok?”

“I am. Thank you.”

“I’m Max.” He held out his hand to shake hers.

Max didn’t know why he was introducing himself to her; she would find out who he was anyways.

“Kyle,” she responded, shaking his hand. “Thanks again.”

Kyle walked off toward the back. She wanted the night to be over with. She wanted to go home and try and forget tonight.


“Did you take care of Sev?” Max asked Mike.

“Yes. We gave Sev a good beating, and he’s been with the doc the majority of the night.”

“Good, next time I’ll kill him,” Max stated.

“We also tried to collect from Ryan Jackson; he didn’t have what he owed us.”

Max was angry; he has waited too long to be paid back by him.

“We’ll visit him tomorrow, and we’ll either deal with him or take something important to him.” Max had a plan to take Ryan’s sister. He always had a thing for innocent girls.

And after tonight, he realized how innocent she really was.


The next morning Kyle was at home having breakfast with her brother when there was a knock on the door.

“Stay, I’ll get it.” Her brother got up to answer the door. He was gone for a few minutes when she heard arguing and decided to head into the living room.

She saw a few guys with guns, and she recognized these men from the bar.

“Ryan, what are they doing?”

“It’s ok, Kyle, go back to the kitchen.”

Before Kyle could answer, someone walked through the door.

“Now, why would I want that.” Kyle’s eyes got big; it was the guy who made sure She was ok, last night. She was embarrassed and felt stupid.

She thought Max was nice, but he knew who she was and had an ulterior motive

“I’m here to collect my debt, Ryan. You’re severely behind, so I’ll give you a choice. You can either let one of my men shoot you, or I can take your sister, or you can give me my money.”

“You can’t take her, and I don’t have all of your money,” Ryan yelled.

“Then I guess you’ll get shot.” one of the guys cocked their gun and pointed at Ryan.

Ryan was hoping that Max was bluffing. He was afraid that if they shot him, they would still take Kyle as collateral.

“I have some of your money,” Ryan said in a panic.

“It has to be all of it to get out of this,” Max informed him.


“I’m sorry, Kyle.”

“It-it’s ok.”

“If she goes with you, what will happen to her?”

“She’ll be mine.” Max said. “She’ll be treated like a queen if she behaves,” he said with a smirk.

“There has to be another way; I can help him pay back the debt,” Kyle asked.

“I’m so sorry, Kyle. I’ll get the money, and I’ll get you back, I promise. I love you.”

Those were the last words she heard her brother before she was forced out of the apartment and into a waiting car.

Once they were all in the limo, the driver didn’t waste time pulling out of the parking lot. Kyle was scared, and she didn’t know what to do. She wasn’t angry at her brother and, in a way, didn’t blame him.

She would have been afraid of being shot too. She didn’t like the idea of him getting shot, but she also didn’t like the idea of being held captive.

“You’re a quiet one, aren’t you?” Max asked.

“I don’t have anything to say to you,” she bit back.

Max chuckled at her, and he thought she was adorable while acting angry at him. He was intrigued by her, and he didn’t know why. She was simple and pretty, but there wasn’t anything extraordinary about her.

“I know you’re angry at me, but you find me attractive. You can deny it all you want, but the truth is I find you attractive too little bee and I think we can have fun.”

Kyle thought the nickname was stupid and scoffed at him, and she wanted to call him an asshole but held it back.

She was annoyed at herself because she never had the nerve to stand up for herself, even in confrontational situations, she always froze.

“So, tell me, is your name really Kyle, or is it short for something?” Max asked, trying to start a conversation.

Kyle ignored him and looked out the window, hoping he would get the hint to leave her alone.

“You can’t ignore me forever.” Max smiled at her, and Kyle admitted to herself that he was good-looking, especially when he smiled.

“Don’t expect me to like you,” Kyle said, breaking her silence, hoping to hide the fact that she found him attractive.

“I don’t expect you to like me. I expect you to listen to me.” He leaned across and grabbed her chin and forced her to look at him.

“I expect you to do what I want you to do, and if you don’t, you’ll get punished. If you don’t believe me, then try me.” And before Kyle could move her head, Max leaned in and kissed her.

She didn’t respond to the kiss. She wanted to refuse him; she would fight back in ways that she sure knew she could.

Max was a little annoyed that she wasn’t kissing him back, so he bit down on her lower lip, causing it to bleed.

“Did I not say I expect you to obey me. Now let’s try this again, and you’re going to kiss me back, or your lip won’t be the only thing bleeding.”

Kyle did as Max said and kissed him back. She hated kissing him, not because he was gross or rough, but because she was liking it.

She was embarrassed that she was enjoying it. When Max pulled away, a little whimper left her mouth, causing Max to chuckle at her.


The ride to the house they took Kyle to felt like it took forever to her, but she knew it was only a few hours away, and She wondered why they were at her bar if they lived this far out.

“Do you not live in town?” she asked Max

“No. This is the house I live in, the one in town is so that I have something close by in case I need to be there for a few days.”

Max took Kyle’s arm and pulled her to the house. The house from the outside was huge and she thought the house was breathtaking when she first entered; she couldn’t believe such a house existed.

“Where are you taking me?” Kyle asked as Max drug her through the foyer and up the stairs.

Max finally came to a stop at the door, and when he opened it, it revealed a large room that looked like a mini apartment.

“This is our room, and you will not leave it without my permission. If you try to escape, you will be punished. Do you understand?”

Kyle didn’t answer him. She wanted to be defiant, she didn’t want to give up so quickly, and knew she wouldn’t win if she tried to fight him, but her only defense would be to defy him in any way she could.

“I asked if you understood me,” Max said while he pulled her head back by her hair. “You are always to answer me with words, do you understand?”

When Kyle didn’t answer again, he shook her head roughly by the hair.

“Ahh, yes, I understand.”

“Great, don’t make me angry, and you’ll live a pampered life here,” he said as he pushed her away.

“I’ll have someone come by with clothes and lunch. I’ll be back this evening, and if you misbehave, I will be told and I will deal with you.”

“I understand.”

Max smirked when Kyle responded. “See, you’re already learning.” Max walked over to Kyle, and he tried to kiss her, but she turned her face, and he got her cheek.

Max grabbed her chin roughly and faced it forward and dominated her mouth with his lips, but she wasn’t kissing him back.

“If you want this to end, you’ll kiss me back, little bee.” Max was happy when she started kissing him back after his statement.

Kyle hated that he was forcing himself onto her, but she couldn’t ignore how good it felt to kiss him. His lips were skilled and soft, and she felt a tingle in her lips when his lips touched hers.

She hated that she liked his dominating and forceful ways.

“Very good. You’ll come to learn that I don’t want to hurt you, I just want you to listen to me.” Max didn’t say anything else and walked out of the bedroom and locked the door behind him.

Kyle was angry at herself because she felt as if she let this happen, felt like she should have worked harder and made more money to help Ryan. Kyle knew she needed to get out; she needed a plan.

Kyle tried everything. She wasn’t strong enough to break the door, and the windows were screwed shut. She had no way out. She moved around the room, trying to think of anything she could do to get out.

After an hour of going through the room, she heard the door unlock and watched a man that was equally as handsome as Max.

“You should calm down, or I’ll have to tell Max that you were trying to find a way out.”

“Who are you?” Kyle asked.

“My name is Dimitri, here are some clothes, and someone will be by in a few minutes to give you some food, and I suggest you give everything a rest.”

Dimitri didn’t say much else to her and walked out the door.

Dimitri was careful not to overstep, but he felt an attraction toward this tiny little girl as he refers to her. He knew his brother would be mad if he did something without consulting him before.

He was tempted to tell Max that she misbehaved so they could punish her. He had a feeling that she would like a little bit of pain with pleasure.

Dimitri wasn’t kidding when he said someone would be by shortly with food. A skinny blonde came in with a tray of food. The plate had soup, bread, and pasta.

“I wasn’t sure what you liked, so I grabbed two things and figured you could choose, or you could eat both.”

“Thank you,” was all Kyle could get out before the girl left. A few seconds late, the door was locked again.

Kyle sat at the desk and sighed. She wanted out of the room; she wanted to be around people; she wanted a chance to see the house so she could escape. She couldn’t stay here; she didn’t want to be part of this.

Kyle wasn’t sure when she fell asleep, she just remembers being woken up. She was confused at first, and it took her a few seconds to realize that she was forced to live with some men that Ryan owed money to.

A man that she found attractive yet scary. A man that she wanted to get away from but to stay with.

“Wake up.” The voice said again. She quickly realized it was Max.

“I guess you got so bored that you slept the day way.” Max chuckled.

“Dimitri informed me that you’d been a good little girl; he also told me that he was intrigued by you the way I am. Tell me, little bee, who do you find more attractive Dimitri or me?”

Kyle thought this was a trap, she didn’t know how to answer the question, and she was afraid that she would be punished for any answer she gave.

“Neither, I don’t find kidnapping attractive,” she told Max.

“We didn’t kidnap you; you were given to us. There is a difference.”

“You forced him; anyone would make that decision if they faced with getting shot.”

“Watch your tone when you speak to me,” Max warned her.

Max pulled Kyle up from the bed and leaned down and kissed her and she knew better this time and kissed him back.

“Such a quick learner, I wonder what else I could teach you.”

Max bent down and kissed Kyle back, this time taking it a step farther and placing his hands on her butt. He squeezed her cheeks and pulled her closer.

Kyle gasped when she felt his erection press into her. He took the opportunity and stuck his tongue into her mouth and bit her lip. The bite caused her to release a little moan.

The moan is what Max was looking for, so he broke the kiss, satisfied that he got a response out of her.

“It seems like your body likes the way I handle it.” He said with a smirk.

Kyle was mad at herself for letting her guard down for enjoying what he was doing to her.

“Don’t worry little bee there will be more later, now get ready for dinner and don’t keep me waiting.”
