Kelly held her little brother upright in her arms and scooted up to the head of the bed, further away from the two men. What if Barron beat him? Raimi would die. Axel had smashed his face once, but he hadn’t been expecting it. Could he win a fight?

“You’re hardly more than a kid yourself,” Barron observed. “What are you—twenty-one, twenty-two? You think you can kick my ass?”

“No thinking about it,” Axel replied with enough confidence to ease some of Kelly’s fears.

“Guess we’ll see, won’t we-”

Kelly barely saw Axel move before Barron was on the floor again, Axel on top of him, fists smashing down like battering rams. Suddenly, Axel had a gun in his hand, the tip of the barrel grinding into Barron’s forehead. “I’d love to put a fucking bullet in your diseased brain,” he growled through clenched teeth. “But that’s too good for you.” He cracked the butt of the weapon across his temple, knocking Barron out cold. He quickly dragged him to the closet, stuffed him inside, then wedged the door with a chair. “I’ll be back for you later, motherfucker.”

Kelly stared at Axel in stunned silence.

“Sorry you had to see that,” he mumbled and hurried over to the bed, lifting Raimi into his arms.

“I’m not,” Kelly murmured.

Axel smiled small. “You’re a tough kid.”

Swallowing thickly, Kelly shook her head as fresh tears welled. “Not so much.”

“I disagree,” Axel said and ushered her out of the freezing room.
