Chapter Twenty-Three

It had been a couple of weeks and Bailey had been coming around the house often, her and Nathan seemed to be getting on really well.

I hadn’t heard off Connor though and I was beginning to get worried as he didn’t reply, and no one could get hold of him.

After a week my brothers had officially sorted out the club, so I now owned a quarter of the club as did they all.

Bailey had started training with Payton in the bar and she was loving it so far, she loved the adrenaline that the club bought, and she was a natural at bar work.

I had gone into the club office early this morning to check out stock for the bar and make sure everything was running well, I was taking my ownership seriously.

“I hear Nathan is fighting tonight” Bailey sneaks up on me, making me jump as I smack her lightly on the arm.

“Are you trying to make me go into labour!” I laugh.

“Sorry Kat” She laughs.

“But, yes, Nathan is fighting tonight, I just don’t know who” I smile.

“Will you be there tonight?”

“Hopefully, depends how I’m feeling, Travis keeps putting me on bedrest” I roll my eyes.

“You need to rest you have a baby to think of. Plus none of us want to lose you either” Bailey smiles.

“I know, I just miss all this” I sigh.

“I know. You’ll be back soon enough” She smiles placing a hand on mine.

“So, what’s going on with you and my brother?” I smirk as she blushes and looks away.

“He’s great, but I’m not sure about something” she says.
“About what?”

“Whether I’m into guys or guys and girls” She blushes as I smirk.

“Seriously…If you don’t know then get out there and try” I smile.

“With who Kat?” She rolls her eyes as I stand and take her face in my hand, tilting her closer to me.

“Single girl right here” I smirk.

“Are you sure Kat?” She asks as I roll my eyes and take her lips with mine as she kisses back. Her hand entwine in my hair as we gasp out as the door suddenly swings open.

“Kat! Connor’s back!…Oh…Uh sorry” Bobby rushes into the office but soon slowly shuts the door behind him.

“So, how did that feel?” I smirk.

“I…Uh…I don’t know…” She sighs.

“Think on it. I need to go” I say kissing her lips once more before grabbing my bag and heading out.

“What the hell was that?! You know Nathan likes her right?” Bobby growls in my ear.

“She came to me and said she wasn’t sure about her sexuality I was just helping her.” I roll my eyes.

“So, what did she say?”

“That she doesn’t know…She’s confused.” I sigh.

“Oh…Ok…” He says as we get in the car.

“So, Connor’s back? Is he ok?!” I change the subject.

“I don’t know. Travis called me and told us to come home” He shakes his head.

“I have a bad feeling about this Bobby” I sigh.

“Me too Kat, but no matter what, we’ll be right beside you” Bobby squeezes my hand tight before he carries on driving.

We get home and several cars are on the drive including my brothers, Travis’s, Connor’s and Mason’s.

“Why is Mason here?” I ask.

“It’s his brother Kat” Bobby rolls his eyes before helping me out the car and into the house.

“Katrina, before you go in I want to tell you that you need to stay calm” Travis rushes to the door.

“Why? What’s going on?” Bobby asks.

“So…Uh…Connor brought home an extra…” Travis says as I push past him and into the lounge.

“Dad…” I murmur as I see our father looking beaten and bruised on the sofa, talking to Nathan and Toby.

“Hey baby girl” He smiles guiltily.

“Connor! Shit are you ok? I’ve been worried sick!” I exclaim noticing the bruises on him as I rush to him.

“Way to ignore Dad, Kat” Toby grumbles.

“My father died” I snap.

“Kat…He’s your Dad…” Connor sighs taking my hand in his as I notice Mason glare at his brother.

“What happened? I told you not to get yourself hurt to get HIM” I growl out.

“You need your family Kat I did this for you” Connor answers.

“I don’t need HIM. He’s the reason I ended up with Luke!” I shout.

“Katrina Smoak sit the fuck down” My Dad snaps.

“Go back to the Motors, you’re not needed here” I snap and begin to walk out.

“I tried to keep you safe Katrina! I did the best I could do! The Locke’s put a bounty on my head! Luke knew I was alive!” Dad exclaims.

“Then maybe you should have died” I answer as I walk out.

“I’ll go talk to her” I hear Connor sigh as he follows me upstairs and into my room.

“There’s no point trying to change my mind Connor. I can’t stand that man anymore, he’s not my father” I shake my head as he turns me around, seeing the tears in my eyes.

“I know, but he wants to make it up to you. Don’t cry, I hate to see you cry” He says, wiping a tear from my face.

“You scared me Connor” I cried.

“I know, I got your messages when we got back, I’m sorry I couldn’t reply” He hugs me tight.

“You ever do that again and I’ll hurt you myself” I warn.

“And I believe you” He smirks as I decide to do something. I kiss him, hard as he kisses back for just a moment before pulling back and resting his forehead on mine.

“We shouldn’t Kat” He sighs.

“I know…” I say

“Fuck it” Connor growls before he kisses me again as he pushes me carefully against a wall as we kiss passionately.

“Connor, we shouldn’t do this” I say between kissing him, my mind was confused, and my hormones were raging with pure lust.

“I know…” He says but we kiss again as his hands glide over my body as I moan.

“What the fuck are you doing with my sister?” Nathan growls as he bursts in and Connor jumps from me in shock.

“Nathan calm down” I stand between them

“Why can’t you stop with the Kingsley family? Are you trying them all?” Nathan snaps.

“It’s not like that Nathan, dude” Connor sighs.

“Then tell me what this is!” Nathan shouts.

“I care for her! I love her! I got your Dad back for her and you guys! I’m trying to protect her!” Connor shouts.

Nathan and Connor continue to argue as I feel the stress build up inside me and then sudden pain in my stomach.

“Kat!” Connor shouts as he drops to my side as I fall to the floor.

“Travis!” Nathan shouts in a panic and Travis rushes upstairs as I hold a hand against my stomach.
“What? Kat? What hurts?!” Travis rushes to my side and moves Connor away from me.

“My whole stomach” I groan.

“Call an ambulance!” Travis shouts.

“Katrina? Travis what’s happening with my baby girl” Dad rushes up the stairs.

“I think she’s going into early labour” Travis says trying to help me up as I scream out in pain.

“But she’s only twenty-four weeks!” Nathan exclaims.

“Don’t you think I know that Nathan” Travis snaps.

Everyone begins rushing around in a panic as an ambulance arrives.

“I’ll go with her” Connor says.

“No you won’t” Dad says and climbs into the ambulance.
“Who are you?” The paramedic asks.

“Her father” He answers as they nod and shut the doors.

“You left me” I cry through the pain as I’m rushed to the hospital.

“I know, I’m so sorry sweetheart, I will do anything to make it up to you, but let’s get you and your baby sorted first little one” He says taking my hand as I scream in pain again.

“I’m scared Daddy” I whimper as he kisses my hand.

“I know, I’m here” He says before we arrive, and I’m rushed off.

“Dad!” I cry out as he’s stopped at the doors as doctors rush me away.

“We need to get your baby out now, calm down Katrina, we’ll let your dad in soon” The doctor says as I hyperventilate.

They put me to sleep as a rush of voices were flooding my ears before I slowly passed out.
