DEACON

She looks at me in confusion, and I smile softly. “I know Chad hurt you badly, and you’re too scared to give me a chance. And I want to prove to you that you can trust me and give me a chance. I would sing this to you, but my singing voice my scare you off, so, I’m just gonna play it.” I chuckle and she giggles, then I get up and walk over to the jukebox. I have a key, so I can get into it and play the song I want to play without having to wait.

I click on a Keith Urban song, and hit play.

“[Keith Urban:] I know he hurt you
Made you scared of love, too scared to love
He didn’t deserve you
Cause your precious heart is a precious heart

He didn’t know what he had and I thank God, oh, oh, oh
And it’s gonna take just a little time
But you’re gonna see that I was born to love you

[Keith Urban & Carrie Underwood:]
What if I fall?
I won’t let you fall
What if I cry?
I’ll never make you cry
And if I get scared?
I’ll hold you tighter
When they’re tryna get to you, baby, I’ll be the fighter
What if I fall?
I won’t let you fall
What if I cry?
I promise I’ll never make you cry
And if I get scared?
I’ll hold you tighter
When they’re tryna get to you, baby, I’ll be the fighter

[Keith Urban:]
Look in the mirror
You’re beautiful, so beautiful
I’m here to remind you
You’re my only one, let me be the one

To heal all the pain that he put you through
It’s a love like you never knew
Just let me show you

[Keith Urban & Carrie Underwood:]
What if I fall?
I won’t let you fall
What if I cry?
I’ll never make you cry
And if I get scared?
I’ll hold you tighter
When they’re tryna get to you, baby, I’ll be the fighter
What if I fall?
I won’t let you fall
What if I cry?
I promise, I’ll never make you cry
And if I get scared?
I’ll hold you tighter
When they’re tryna get to you, baby, I’ll be the fighter

I wanna believe that you got me, baby
I swear I do from now until the next life
I wanna love, wanna give you all my heart

[Chorus - Keith Urban & Carrie Underwood:]
What if I fall?
I won’t let you fall
What if I cry?
I’ll never make you cry
And if I get scared?
I’ll hold you tighter
When they’re tryna get to you, baby, I’ll be the fighter
What if I fall?
I won’t let you fall
What if I cry?
I promise I’ll never make you cry
And if I get scared?
I’ll hold you tighter
When they’re tryna get to you, baby, I’ll be the fighter

What if I fall?
What if I cry?
And if I get scared?
I’ll hold you tighter
When they’re tryna get to you, baby, I’ll be the fighter”

By the end of the song, she had tears in her eyes. Oh, God. I hope those are happy tears. I start to panic when she smiles at me, then leaps out her seat and hugs me.

I’m shocked at first, then quickly hug her back. “I know how much what Chad did affected you, but I want you to know I’m not like that. I won’t ever hurt you.” I tell her, again. “Yes.” Is her simple reply and my eyebrows furrow in confusion. “Huh? Yes?” I ask, confused about what she means. “Yes, I’ll go out with you Deacon or be your girlfriend, if you want.” Violet replies and I smile so brightly if Cage saw me he’d never let me live it down.

“You will? You’ll be my girlfriend?” I ask, needing her to say it again so I know I’m not hearing things. She laughs and pulls back, “Yes. I want to be your girlfriend.” She smiles at me, then bites her lip while looking at mine. Holy hell. Plus, I was sitting when she hugged me, so she is currently straddling me and it’s making one part of my body hyperaware of her every move. The urge to mate her right now is so strong. I want her, and she finally agreed to be mine.

VIOLET

I want to kiss him, so bad. I am solely focused on his lips, that I just want to touch mine so bad. He leans forward, and his hands hold my back, pulling me toward him. Then he looks unsure, and goes to lean back when I lean forward and connect my lips with his. The sparks erupt strongly, only making the kiss better. He is slightly shocked into stillness, so I begin to move my lips against his, telling him I want it. Then he hesitantly begins to kiss me back. I move my lips a little faster and he gets into it, moving his lips more feverishly against mine. Once we are both more comfortable, I move my hands up to his hair and his arms are caressing my back and stroking my hair. His tongue slips into my mouth, causing a moan to vibrate from somewhere deep in me and I grip his hair more, making him groan and pull me closer.

His lips move feverishly against mine as his tongue explores my mouth and dances with mine. This is the most amazing kiss I have ever experienced in my life. And I thought Chad’s kisses were great, boy was I fucking wrong. Chad’s kisses don’t even compare. His arms are wrapped around me, and I tug gently on his hair at the nape of his neck, making him groan again. Which is the sexiest sound I have ever heard. I pull back for air, but apparently, he doesn’t need any as he peppers kisses along my jaw, making me moan. I then remember we are in the bar and I practically jump off his lap. Which I just realized I had been straddling. I can feel my face heat up, and Deacon smiles at me, making me smile back. I look around to see we haven’t grabbed much attention. Only one guy who looks like a pervert in the back. I go to sigh in relief, when I see Cage and Jacey standing behind Deacon. Jacey looks ecstatic and has a huge smile on her face, meanwhile Cage is smirking at Deacon. My blush intensifies.

“Well, well, well, what do we have here?” Cage says sarcastically, his smirk still in place. Jacey elbows him gently, with a laugh. “Cage, be nice. They finally got together! We need to celebrate!” Jacey says excitedly and I glance at Deacon, to see him staring at her like she has two heads. “Jacey, don’t go-” He’s cut off, when Jacey shouts, “Oh! I know! You should tell mom and dad first, then we should throw a huge party to announce it to everyone! They are going to be so excited!” Deacon’s eyes bug out. “Jacey, Cage, please don’t go doing anything crazy.” Deacon asks.

“Pssh, me? Never.” Jacey replies, with a mischievous look in her eyes and a knowing smile.

“Mmhm.” Deacon hums in disbelief.

I giggle quietly, then lick my lips. Missing the feel of his on mine. Deacon follows the action, making my skin heat up, remembering the feeling of him touching me just moments ago. Damn, if only we had been alone.

“So, when did this happen” Jacey questions, still smiling brightly. “Just now.” I answer and her jaw drops. “Just now? Like, right now?” Jacey asks. “Yeah.” I nod, and Cage looks pleased. “Well, it’s about time. Deacon has been acting like a love sick puppy, missing you this whole week and a half. I’m glad you decided to give him a chance Violet.” Cage tells me and I smile at him. “Me too. Just don’t make me regret it.” I warn Deacon seriously. “I promise you, you won’t regret it.” Deacon promises, wholeheartedly.

He better not make me regret this. I walk back over to him and put my finger on his chest. “You better not. I’m trusting you with my heart Deacon, don’t break it.” I repeat firmly, giving him a pointed look in warning. “I swear, your heart is safe with me. Always.” Deacon reassures me, and I smile.

“Good.”

“Yay! Everyone is happy, so, let’s freaking celebrate people!” Jacey yells happily and I laugh a little and look at Deacon. “Want to celebrate?” I joke, smiling. He laughs, then looks at his sister. “What all did you have in mind? Nothing crazy though.” Deacon asks her and she beams at him.

“Well, I was thinking we should have her meet mom and dad, then tell the pa-, I mean family.” Jacey suggests, her dark brown eyes filled with excitement.

Parents? Already? Ugh... “Meet your parents? Already? We just now got together, don’t you think that’s a little soon?” I ask nervously, biting my lip. Deacon grabs my hand and pulls me back onto his lap -thankfully, not in a straddling position- and wraps his arm around my waist, instantly calming me down. “She’s right, Jacey. It’s way too soon. Lets just all go out to dinner somewhere.” Deacon suggests, but it sounds more like an order. It’s hot. Wait, what? My hormones are crazy.

“Their right, it’s way too soon.” Cage agrees, looking at Jacey who is pouting. “But it’s not like they aren’t going to end up together. So, why not get the parent meet and greet over with now? They’ll love her!” Jacey says and my eyes bug out. End up together? Maybe? That actually sounds great, but I’m not going to tell him that. Last thing I need is to freak him out and have him leave me right when he gets me.

“Fine. We’ll do things your way, for now.” Jacey mutters to herself.

My phone rings. I pull it out of my purse and glare at the screen when I see who it is. Chad. Fucker. “Leave me alone!” I shout into the phone, without even a greeting. “Violet! Listen to me, you’re mine! And I am going to get you back!” Chad threatens, more like promises. “Fuck you! I am done with this shit Chad. Stop fucking drinking.” Deacon’s face instantly turns to anger at the mention of Chad’s name and I swear I heard a growl, or three. Weird.

“What the hell does he want?” Deacon practically growls out, his fists and jaw clenching in anger and his already almost black eyes are fully black now. “Is that the bar guy who asked you out? What the fuck are you doing with him! You are dating him! You have no right!” Chad roars angrily in my ear, and I pull the phone away before he blows my eardrum. “I have every right you jackass! Fuck off!” I shout, completely livid then hit the end button, hanging up on him.

The nerve he has, telling me I have no right to date someone else when I’m single, but he cheated on me when we were together and he’s making me seem like I’m the bad guy!? The fuck? “Jesus, Chad has a lot of fucking nerve!” I yell out loud, and they all give me concerned looks. Although they all look angry too.

“What happened?” Jacey asks in concern and anger. I growl lowly in annoyance. “Fucking Chad. He is telling me I have no right to date Deacon.” I explain, and Deacon’s face contorts in rage. “He said what now!” Deacon yells outraged.

“Chad doesn’t want me to date you. He says I’m his and that I have no right to go out with you.” I tell them all and I swear I heard Deacon growl.

What Chad is doing is ridiculous. He is a hypocrite.

“You have every right!” Deacon explodes, his eyes dark and fists clenched. Damn, he can be really scary when he wants to be.

“I know I do, but Chad seems to think differently. He thinks he can cheat and it’s ok, but when I’m single I can’t date anyone else. It’s severely messed up logic.” I explain to them, their faces all mixed emotions. But the one that stands out prominently on Deacon’s face, is utter rage.

“And, I’m not sure, but since he heard your voice,” I look at Deacon, “Chad might be on his way here. But I’m not positive, I mean, he never said he was coming here. But when he heard your voice he flipped and that’s when I hung up on him. So, he might be coming here, ready to go on a rampage.” I warn them, knowing full well what he might do when he’s mad.

“Let him. You’re mine. And I’ll be happy to show him that.” Deacon growls out, yes I do mean growls, and I swear him claiming me as his just turned me on.

“What is this guys problem? He cheated on you, you dumped him, now he’s saying your his and have no right to date? What the fuck?” Jacey asks me, her face screwed in confusion. I shrug. “That’s just Chad’s ridiculous logic I guess. Plus, I could tell even on the phone that he has been drinking today. So, that could be a contributing factor to his behavior.” I explain, thinking to how he sounded drunk on the phone. He always acts a little crazy when drunk.

Always has.

“Why is he drinking?” Cage inquires. “He’s Chad. And he’s upset I have ignored him for days.” I answer and they nod in understanding.

“But, why does he seem to think he has some claim over you? You’re not his, you’re mine.” Deacon says roughly, his voice teetering on rage but trying not to yell. I shrug. “I don’t know. He’s drunk.” I really don’t know why Chad thinks he has a right to tell me I can’t date and that I belong to him. Um, no I don’t. I dumped your ass.

“Maybe he has a mental problem?” Jacey suggests, and we all just blink.

“What?” Jacey asks, “He doesn’t have a mental problem.” I inform her and she shrugs.

“He could.”

“He doesn’t. He’s just, I don’t know. Sad maybe? Sad I broke up with him? I have really no clue as to why he is acting this way. I mean, he is free to fuck Danielle now without it being wrong cause he is single now.” Is my reply, and it could be true.

“A drinking problem? An alcoholic?” Cage suggests, and I shake my head. “No, he’s not an alcoholic, he can stop whenever he wants to. But a drinking problem, yes. He does drink more than he should. Oh, and by the way, you all know he’s nineteen and not twenty-one, right?” I ask and their eyes all bug out.

“What!?” Deacon all but yells out. “He has a really good fake I.D. He’s tricked many places with it.” I tell them all and Deacon looks disappointed in his staff, Cage looks amused but angry, and Jacey looks like she wants to hit somebody. Hopefully none of us will be her target. She’s small, but she is very strong.

“Son of a bitch. We served him alcohol, on more than one occasion! Fuck, we could go to jail for this!” Deacon mutters, looking both irked at being fooled, and like he wants to strangle Chad. I don’t blame him.

“Well, the bar is empty, so nobody knows this information but us. It’s unlikely that will happen, but in the case he does come back, now we know. We just have to notify Roy tomorrow when he comes in for work, to not serve Chad anymore because his I.D. is fake. Albeit, an incredibly realistic fake I.D., but fake nonetheless.” Cage reassures Deacon, and I notice him start to calm down, hugging me closer. Which makes my body feel on fire with his every touch. I want more, but I can’t think about that right now.

“Where did he have it made?” Deacon quires and I shrug. “I have no idea.” I admit.

“Well, why have you never called the cops and had him arrested for it?” Cage asks me, and my eyes bug out. “Are you crazy? I’ve known the guy for years, I’m not going to have him arrested! If he gets arrested for his stupid fake I.D., it’s not going to be because of me. It’ll be because of his own damn stupidity.”

They all look at each other, then back to me. “I know you care deeply for him, but you can’t keep letting him get away with all the crap he puts you and everyone, through.” Jacey tells me softly. “I know,” I agree. “It’s just, Chad has been there for me for years and was one of my best friends before he was my boyfriend. I don’t want to hurt him.” I explain to them, and look down at my hands which I have clasped on my lap.

Deacon rubs my back, and I look at him. He gives me a small smile, “We understand that. But Chad is getting away with everything like a little kid who isn’t getting punished. He needs to know you are done with him and are with me now, and can’t yell at you for it. He has no claim on you, and he needs to stop acting like he does.” Deacon tells me softly, almost like I might break.

I nod.

“I know, but how? I have told him that, many times. I have yelled at him saying that he and I are over and I can date whoever I want, but he keeps saying that I can’t and I’m his. It’s really starting to piss me off.” I answer, clenching my fists and jaw.

He is getting me so stressed I wouldn’t be surprised if I woke up with grey hair!

“Make it more clear. Sit him down, when he’s sober, and tell him flat out. You’re over and you’re with Deacon now and he needs you to leave you alone.” Jacey tells me, and Cage and Deacon nod in agreement.

“Will that actually work?” I wonder out loud. Chad can be hard-headed and extremely stubborn. But, unluckily for him, so can I.

“It can, if you tell him firmly when he is sober and you make it extremely clear. And maybe threaten cutting off all communication with him forever, maybe then he’ll take the hint and back off.”

I nod uneasily. “Maybe.”

“Or, I can just kick his ass.” Deacon suggests, looking like he is enjoying that idea a little too much. I narrow my eyes at him.

“Look, I get you don’t like him, but he already got his ass kicked. And, my dad socked him in the nose and then broke Chad’s nose with a baseball bat,” I’m cut off by their laughter. I narrow my eyes at all of them. “Your dad, broke Chad’s nose with a bat?” Jacey asks, trying to contain her laughter but the amusement in her eyes gives her away.

I nod.

“Yeah, he showed up at my parents house, my dad clocked him in the nose, then went to hit his ribs with the bat when I yelled not to. That distracted him and he accidently hit his nose. I can still hear that loud crunching sound in my head.” I shudder, remembering the sound of Chads nose being shattered by the force of my Dad’s bat.

Deacon looks way to amused by this and I slap his arm gently. He looks at me, dark eyes filled with mirth. “You, are way to amused by this.” I inform him with narrowed eyes and he grins, making me smile.

"Of course, he is. Hearing that his mat-" Deacon gives her a hard look, "Girlfriends, ex boyfriend, was beat by a bat, is a thing that would make any guy amused." She corrects herself. What was she going to say?

I giggle. I guess she's right. Plus, Chad kinda deserved it for being douchebag of the month.

"I'm going to lock the door. Don't want any more drunks coming in." Cage stands from his seat on the chair beside us and starts walking toward the door.

"So," I begin, before I am cut off by the front door of the bar -which Cage was about to lock- being thrown open with fury.
