Chapter 75: Laura Is Going for An Interview
I packed my suitcase for the week I would be in Kentucky. I carried it down the hallway and sat it by the front door. I then walked into the kitchen and put eggs, bacon, and toast on my plate and poured a cup of coffee. I sat down next to William and ate my breakfast. When I finished I rinsed my dishes and put them in the dishwasher.
"I told Grace I would see her in a week."
I got in my car and drove out of the compound. I arrived at my grandparents cabin and then went to my interview. I met with three women. Tammy, Linda, and Leigh. They talked about opening an agency in Celina, Ohio where I live.
Leigh was moving to Celina so she will head up the bounty agency. I will be second in command and we will hire at least four other people. I will meet with Leigh in two weeks to look at office space. I really liked these women. I thanked them and walked out of the their office.
I stayed in the cabin for the week before heading back to Blade's club. I parked my car and turned it off. I got out and picked up my suitcase before walking into the club. As I entered I saw Ghost sitting at his usual table. I walked over kissed Grace and then went to my bedroom.
I took a shower and changed clothes before walking out and over to the table Wolf and Ripper was sitting at at.
"How did your interview go Laura?"
" It went great."
" I will be meeting with Leigh next week to look at office space here in town."
"Then we will be interview people to help bounty hunt."
" We plan on hiring four people."
" We also have appointments scheduled with the police departments to discuss contracts."
" So it is looking good."
" What is your plan after the business gets off the ground?"
"I will look into buying a small house and moving from the clubhouse."
" Sounds like you have everything figured out."
" Not everything."
" What about dating?"
" No, I am no longer interested in dating or getting married."
"I won't have time for dating."
" I will be busy bounty hunting."
" So, becoming a mother is currently not in my books. If ever."
" Someday you might date."
" Maybe, but I don't think so. "
"How has your week been Wolf?"
" Boring without you here."
" I laughed and said you don't know me that well."
"So what is your plan for the day Laura?"
" Ripper I want you to take shopping for a bike."
" I know how to drive one but I am not sure which one is the best for me."
" Wolf and I will take you shopping."
" Good, I finally get that bike ride you owe me."
I looked over at Ripper laughing and saw Wolf and Laura high five each other.
"You are right Laura."
" So, when do you want to go?"
" Tomorrow after noon work for you guys?"
" That works for me Ripper said. Me to."
"Ripper I have another question."
" What Laura. I want to get a tattoo but I don't want some man I know doing it."
" I will do your tattoo."
" Tomorrow morning at the shop."
" What do you want?"
" A Ripper on this shoulder, and a wolf on this one."
" Oh baby girl."
" I know what you are doing."
"What am I doing?"
" Pissing Ghost off."
" Ghost who?"
" I don't know any Ghost."
" Fine. I will do it."
" Good." I stood up and grabbed a beer before walking to the gym. I was practicing my kicks and punches when Ghost walked into the room.
I was taking my gloves off when he asked how I was doing.
"I am doing fine thank you for asking."
I walked over to the locker and put my gloves on the shelf. I then shut the locker and locked it. I picked up the towel and dried my face before I started lifting weights. I continued to ignore Ghost.
"Dam it Laura. I am sorry."
" Sorry for what I asked?"
" For fucking that whore."
" What whore?"
" You know dam good and well what whore."
" None of my business."
I stood up and walked over and picked up my towel and water.
"I am not your girlfriend or wife."
" You can fuck anyone you want to."
" It doesn't matter to me."
" Excuse me. I have to take a shower."
I walked out of the gym not seeing Ripper and Wolf standing outside the door.
"That was cold Wolf said."
" She doesn't care what he does anymore."
" It feels as if she has closed her heart down."
" I think she has."
" She is never going to forgive Ghost."
"He brought it on himself."
I showered dressed and grabbed my bag before walking down the hall and out the club. I drove to the strip bar owned by the club. I told Mike hello and walked down the hallway to the dressing room. I started dancing at the club when I moved into Graces house.
I dance three times a week. The money is good and it takes my mind off Ghost. I don't have to strip just pole dance. Mike treats me good and I don't have to service in bikers or give lap dances. No one knows it is me as I wear a mask. I performed three sets then showered and dressed before walking out to sit at the bar.
"How are you really doing Laura?"
" I am fine."
" Ghost was an ass."
" His loss not mine."
" I don't need a man who cheats and lies."
" I am better off without one."
" Ghost made his choice and it did not involve me."
" I have accepted that."
"I decided I don't need a man in my life."
" To much hurt and pain."
" Better off living alone and doing what I want when I want."
" I don't need a man forcing me to do what I don't want to."
" At least being single and never planning on marrying or getting claimed I can fuck who I want when I want."
