SERENITY

The first thing I notice is that all of Tyson's friends are tall and muscular like him. I was introduced to Kane first, who had his arm wrapped around a beautiful girl whose name is Rosey who seems very nice compared to her husband. It's a mix of nice and mean. Similar to Tyson and I.

Stuart sits next to Rosey, who is the only one drinking whiskey while the others drank regular beer.

"Lewis has been hiding you from us," a man who Tyson had called Shepard said to me. His grin is wide and there seems to be amusement in his eyes.

Stuart adds, "he won't stop talking about you though. We know more about you than you know about yourself."

I laugh at look at Tyson, who stares daggers through the men. They obviously didn't scare each other because they all simply shrugged.

"You're the first girl he's brought to these nights out," Shepard points and takes a drink of his beer, maintaining his gaze on Tyson who wraps his arm around my shoulder.

"Really?"

It's amazing that I'm here with him, meeting his friends, and being able to feel comfortable being with me in public. I feel like I'm living in a dream.

"You're my girl, Serenity. Everyone should know that."

Rosey laughs and says, "You're quite a softy Tyson. You never used to be like that. It's nice to not be the only girl here now. It was great when Luke had a girlfriend because she used to tag along until she dumped him for realizing how big of a dick he is."

Shepard, whose name must be Luke, replies, "I think you've been mistaken. I'm not a big dick-I have one, too big to handle."

I laugh and take a small sip of the cranberry tequila cocktail I ordered to hide my face as I blush.

"How old are you, anyways?" Rosey asked curiously, not in an accusing tone.

"Nineteen. But I'll be twenty in six months."

"You like em young, Lewis." Shepard laughed, clapping Tyson on the back.

"Shut the hell up."

"Why does everyone always attack me?"

"You say stupid shit, Shepard." Kane shakes his head, a smile tugging at his lips.

"Ignore him," Shepard says to me. "He's just mad he can't keep a women longer than a few months."

"And you wonder why I kept her away from all of you," Tyson said, shaking his head.

"Do you drink?"

I laughed. "I have a little."

"None of the hard stuff?"

"No. But I have drank a lot in the past." As soon as I said that, my mind flashed back to when I lived with my father.

"Umm... Excuse me for a moment, I need to use the restroom."

Tyson squeezed my thigh and looked at me. "Want me to come with you?"

"It's only the bathroom. I'll be fine."

I don't look bad to see their reactions when I stand up. I barely made it to the restroom before a hand grips my wrist and pulls me back.

"You're doing so well baby."

"No I'm not. I feel like I'm embarrassing you."

"No, you're not."

"You're just saying that."

"Do I need to spank you right here and now, Serenity?"

"Yes but in a fun way."

"I think you deserve a punishment, Serenity but not because you embarrass me. You deserve it because of the way you're talking about yourself."

"But it's true!"

"Look, baby. I understand why you're feeling this way. This is an obstacle I always worried about, and my friends haven't been too considerate of that either. I'll have a word with them and..."

"No. I don't want to force your friends into not being themselves around me. I don't want to put you in that position. It wouldn't be fair. I'll try a bit harder."

"I like you being my little girl. It's what makes me love you. Don't think that changing yourself will please me. It would do the opposite. So just be you."

"Be me?"

"All you, baby." He leans down to kiss me then smiles. "They all really like you."

"If you say so."

"I do say so. But I still need to use the restroom. Only me."

"Don't tempt me."

"I'll be quick." I go in to analyze myself and rush back to the table. On my way out, I keep my head down. It's gotten busier as the time passes.

I gasp as a hand grips my shoulder, and it isn't until I turn to face the tall man that isn't familiar. He scowls at me as his jawline tenses up.

"What?"

"You're Serenity."

How the hell does he know my name?!

"And... you're quite beautiful," he says as his hand travels down my arm, his eyes appearing to be hungry looking. As he gets close to my breast, I pull away.

"Tell Lewis his luck has ended."
