I kept messing with my hair, moving it from one side to the other. I contemplated throwing it up into a messy bun or ponytail, but I was too indecisive to choose. I was tired and hungover, and by the look of my face and messy hair, it showed.

Axe studied me, lifting an eyebrow. “Stop it. You look fine.” 

“Yeah, if you think circus clowns look fine.”

“Maybe I like circus clowns.”

“Says the one afraid of turtles.”

“Only the ones that bite you,” he smirked as he handed me a dixie cup filled with coins. “I’ll play you in skee-ball,” he said. 

“You’re on.” 

We treaded past a small group of kids, making me feel slightly out of place as we made our way over to skee-ball. I placed my cup of coins on the ledge, my eyes trailing up to meet Axe’s, which were already looking at me. He raised a brow, waiting for me to speak first.

“You first, princess,” I said, motioning to the machine. 

He rubbed his chin as he chuckled, picking up a token and sliding it in to the coin slot. 

I took a step back so that he had room to play, furrowing my brows as he missed his target, time and time again.

“You suck,” I said with my arms crossed. 

He threw his last ball, before turning his curly-haired head to me. “Think you could do better?”

“Yes. One-hundred percent.”

“Alright, Miss. Know-It-All. Prove it then.”

“Step aside,” I said as I placed my small hand on his bicep and playfully pushed him out of the way, pretending that the bulge of his muscle didn’t faze me. 

I rolled each ball carefully, trying my best to make it into the holes with the higher points, considering how shitty my aim was. But even with my bad aim, I still managed to beat Axe’s score. 

I happily raised a brow at him, delighted by my own performance.

“Whatever. I let you win,” he said.

“You let me?” I stifled a laugh. “Yeah, right.” Axe smirked, amused by my reaction. “You want a rematch?” I offered.

“I’m good.”

“Yeah, that’s what I thought.”

I bent down to pick up my cup of tokens, my heart pausing as Axe began to speak again.

“There’s something about you that I like,” he said.

I paused for a quick second before reminding myself not to let him or anything he said faze me. “Thanks,” I responded, trying to avoid eye-contact with him.

He shook his head, a perfect smirk still resting upon his face. “So damn stubborn.”

“I prefer to be stubborn.”

“I can tell.”

I shrugged, trying to end the conversation there. I didn’t know what to make of his comment. Was it a compliment? I couldn’t even tell. 

“You know you don’t have to pretend be a b*tch around me, right?” he asked.

“Maybe I’m not pretending.”

Axe tilted his head, refusing to believe my words. “Oh, c’mon. I see right through it.”

“What makes you so sure?”

“I just know,” he softly said.

“You don’t know anything,” I shook my head, unable to hide the tiny grin upon my lips.
