Jaxon POV

Jax: Is there a reason Nix is avoiding me?

Zander: Not that I know of. Why?

Jax: We had plans last weekend. Paintball. But she never showed.

Zander: Well, did you text or call?

Jax: Yeah man. I've learned my lesson ok? I did both and she didn't answer either.

Zander: Where's the old Jax?

Jax: What's that supposed to mean?

Zander: It's been 2 weeks. Just show up.

Zander: I'll be working late tonight. You're welcome.

Jax: You sure man? Didn't y'all have a date planned tonight?

Zander: I'm sure, but if she's pissed with me after this you owe me. Now go make plans and don't ever say I never do anything nice for you.

Jax: Aww Zan! You really do love me!

Zander: Fuck off. I'm doing this for her.

Jax: Suure 😉 Your secret's safe, boo.

Zander: I hate you so much right now.

It's been over a two weeks since Lennix has responded to my texts or calls. Two weeks of canceled plans.

I know she still talks to Zander. They go on dates and hang out all the time. She's just shutting me out.

I knew that she was embarrassed when I dropped her off after the club at Zander's, but I didn't think it would be so bad that she just didn't even respond to a text.

With Zander giving me tonight, I have to make this good. Get me back on the board. Zander is all about the romantic stuff. Dinners, movies, and walks in the park type... but that's not me.

So, I did what any proper date would do when they want to surprise the girl they are trying to woo. Yeah I said woo.

Lennix was trying to teach me to be a man worthy of a 'good girl'. Which means she talked over date ideas and what kind of effort should be put into it, which is how I know that a concert in the park is right up her alley. And it may seem a bit manipulative, but Zander was right about Lennix being selfless and wanting to make others happy. So if I show up at her door with tickets already in hand, she can't just ignore me.

I know I'm playing off her emotions, but I can't stand this wall she's putting up. Not when I know just how much brighter the world is on the other side.


Pulling up to her apartment, I'm like a teenager again. My hands are sweaty and my nerves are shot.

This is ridiculous. We've gone out just the two of us to do activities before, but this one feels like a first date. This has my head in a spin and I just can't shake it.

The concert starts at sunset. So we have about half an hour before it begins. No time for her to back out.

I just have to play it cool and convince her to go with me.

Knocking on the door I'm surprised when she answers in her pjs.


Little black boy shorts and a white tank top. Is she even trying to hide the fact that she's not wearing a bra, hot damn! The sight has my pants feeling too fucking tight.

"Jax?" Her voice breaks my attention from my appraisal of her body back to her bright blue eyes.

"Hm?" Yeah I respond like an idiot. I was just caught checking her out and the only thing that came to mind was 'hm?' Dumb ass.

She crossed her arms with a blush "I said what are you doing here?"

Get it together Jaxon!

Taking a breath I regain my composure "Get dressed, princess" I smirk at her confused expression. "Zander said he has to work late. So I'm taking you to a concert in the park." I hold up the tickets before she can try to find an excuse and her mouth quickly snaps shut.


It goes without saying that she didn't argue and soon she was dressed in tight ripped jeans with fishnets underneath and a cropped sweatshirt looking like the perfect little sex kitten. Fuck she's gorgeous.

The concert was already started by the time we arrived, but I'm sure we only missed the first song or two, but that didn't matter. Her eyes lit up when she realized who was preforming. That's what I was hoping for.

"Ahh Oh my god! Jaxon, this is amazing! Thank you!" She yelled over the music jumping into my arms for a tight hug.

I looked down into her bright eyes. The air growing thick with tension. My hands were resting on her hips low as I held her against me. Her lips parted and I moved a little closer, but the sound of a new song snapped us out of the moment and she pulled back a fraction clearing her throat.

"Um this is really great, Jax. Thank you." She blushed. Turning out of my arms slightly.

"Anything for you, princess" I spoke lowly.

"What was that?" She asked with a big smile looking up at the stage.

"I said, no problem, Nix." I said louder so she could hear me over the music. Yeah I'm an idiot we covered that.

I listened to the music blasting through the speakers watching her dance and hop around truly free. This is how I love seeing her. All of the worries of work and the day to day grind just fall away when she's dancing or we have our childish activities. To be honest, I love that she brings the playful side out in Zander and accepts me like this.

It's like there's two sides of Lennix. She works hard and can be deadly serious and then there's this Lennix... happy, free, giggly and I'm falling hard for both sides. The more time we spend together the more I just want to call her mine.

Another song comes on and she grabs my hand pulling me toward her to dance. This isn't like when we danced in the living room. Where that was sensual, this was playful.

I spun her around and brought her closer to my body. She swayed bouncing from one foot to the other. I picked her up by her hips and spun her around. Her long blonde hair cascading around us as she giggles. It was like we were the only two people in the park.

When she slid back down my body as I let her back down her arms wrapped around the back of my neck. I held her close by her hips and we forgot about everything and everyone else.

I leaned down inching closer to her lips as her eyes closed.

This was it.

Her breath fanned across my face.

So fucking close.

I licked my lips.

Closed my eyes.

My lips barely brushing hers...


Lennix when rigid in my arms before letting go.

I didn't take my eyes off her. Watching her take a couple steps back.

"Jaxon! It is you!" Amy ran up to give me a hug and trying to kiss me, but I turned my face so it landed on my cheek. "Oh my gosh what are you doing here?"

"Hey Amy. Uh I'm just here with my-"

Lennix cut me off, "I think I'm just gunna call Zander and see if he's off work. Thank you for tonight, Jax. It was a lot of fun." I couldn't miss the slight hurt and confusion in her eyes or the sneering expression Amy was giving her.

"Wait! Nix!" I called after her, but she was already making her way through the crowd and Amy held on to my arm.

"What the fuck was that?" I yell as Amy let's go of my arm.

"What? I just wanted to say hi. I've missed you." Amy pouts and runs her hands over my chest as I back away from her.

"Amy, we were never together. We fucked a handful of times." I ran my hands through my hair in frustration watching the pain register on her face. "I'm sorry if you thought it was something more, but I don't want that with you." I looked to where Lennix disappeared through the crowed anxious to go after her.

"What we had was special. She can't give you what I can. I know you, Jaxon." She reaches for me as I took another step away from her.

"No. It wasn't and you honestly don't know shit about me, Amy." I said through clenched teeth. Not only did she make Lennix leave now she's stopping me from going after her.

"What the hell does she have that I don't?" She yelled as the first tears fell, but I don't feel anything. I might have if she didn't just pull this shit.

This situation just brings Lennix's warning back to the front of my mind. "One day you are going to fall in love with someone and I don't think they will appreciate all the dirty looks the women of Austin give them."

The words fell from my mouth without thought looking Amy in the eyes "My heart." The words were clear and defining in all of the noise around us without raising my voice.

Watching her expression change about 20 times it hit me what I had just said out loud. "I gotta go." I turned on my heels and ran in the direction Lennix left with Amy calling after me.


Zander: Mind explaining why she called me to pick her up?

Jax: I fucked up man.

Zander: I think that’s an understatement, but we'll talk about this later.

Jax: Did you take her home?

Zander: No. She was upset. I took her to my place.

Jax: Do you think she will talk to me if I come over?

Zander: She's asleep right now. Give her the night.
