Chapter 80: Bonnie and Artist
I saw Bonne watching the same whore that went after Ghost. She had been eyeing Artist since he became a full fledged member. I know Bonnie likes Artist and they had been talking for sometime. I watched the whore walk over to Artist and rub his chest.
I watched as Bonne threw the beer bottle hitting Artist in the head.
"What the fuck he yelled."
They both looked at Bonnie and watched her playing with her butterfly knife. I started laughing.
" You just do not learn do you?"
She looked from me to Bonnie and backed away from Artist.
"Artist best keep them away from you."
" Kathy and I are just liked Grace and Laura."
" We don't do cheaters."
" So, if you really liked me don't do it."
I leaned back in my chair and looked at Bonnie.
"If you do it Artist I will just have to chase Wolf."
I saw Wolf grinning.
"I just might let you catch me. Bonnie."
" You are one fine woman."
" But, you must know that Wolf's mate for life."
" Until the day they die or their mate dies."
"That's right your first wife died."
" Sorry to hear that Wolf."
" It's been five years."
" But this Wolf might be on the prowl for a new mate."
I saw Bonnie look over at Artist watching him.
"What do you have to say about that Artist."
"Go for it is what I say."
" I am not ready to settle down."
I gasped. "You are a fool Artist."
We watched as Bonnie walked over to Wolf and sat down on his lap.
" Wolf looks like you are taking me out own a date."
"Tomorrow night 8:00."
" Wear something nice. We will go dancing after we eat."
" Your on."
" I look forward to it."
" Ripper can I borrow your truck. Can't take a lady out to eat and dancing on the bike."
" Sure Wolf. Ripper threw his keys to Wolf and he caught them and put them in his pocket."
Ghost looked at Artist.
"You made a mistake in telling Bonnie you were not ready to settle down and for Wolf to go for it."
" If I know Wolf. Which I do."
" You just lost the woman you want."
"Wolf has not been interested in a woman since his wife died."
" To bad the brothers are doing what I did."
" I lost Laura."
" I don't have a chance in hell of getting her now."
I watched as Ghost stood up and walked down the hallway. I knew he was going to his room.
Two hours later Ripper and I went to our bedroom. We showered before going to bed. Ripper and I made love most of the night. I was happy for once. I want Ripper to claim me. But, I won't push him.
I want to have children someday. But, I am not counting my chickens before they hatch. I am not innocent anymore. I don't trust that easily. As for as I know Ripper could be using me. I just pray that he isn't.
I fell asleep in his arms. I looked at Laura sleeping. I know that she is unsure of me. I will claim her one day but not yet. I don't want to rush her. I can see her self confidence regarding relationships is not fully there.
The next morning I kissed her before going to the garage. I was working with Blade.
" What is on your mind Blade?"
" How much to you care for Laura Ripper?"
" I love her Blade."
" Enough to claim her?"
I turned and looked at Blade.
"Ripper, enough to claim her?"
" Not yet."
"What is holding you back?"
" I don't know."
" You have doubts about claiming her why is that?"
" I love Laura but, I am not sure I am ready to claim her yet."
They did not notice I was standing there until I gasped. I turned and ran to the clubhouse. Past Bonnie and Grace. I was running down the hallway and they were running after me. I just opened the door and Bonnie and Grace stopped me from slamming it.
They walked in and shut the door locking it. We put a chair under the knob.
" I told them that Ripper loves me but he doesn't love me enough to claim me."
" He didn't mean it Laura."
" Yes, he did."
"Bonnie can I go to your room?"
" I don't want to see Ripper right now."
"Grace I am going to the office."
" We have a bed there."
I think I will stay at the office for a few days.
"If Ripper doesn't want to claim me I will be leaving."
"Where will you go?"
" Work at the office in Kentucky. Go back to bounty hunting."
" I won't have to keep my promise to work in the office since I won't have a boyfriend."
" I am beginning to think bikers are not worth giving your love to."
"Blade looked at me and said, you won't find her in the bedroom."
" And she won't come to the kitchen to eat."
" She heard what you said."
" You don't love her enough to claim her."
" She heard it all Ripper."
I asked Bonnie to box my things up and send them to the address in Kentucky. Leigh was at the office when I arrived.
"I told her everything that happened."
"I would be leaving in two days for the cabin."
I lay down and fell asleep. I will not force any man to claim me. I fell in love twice. That was enough. I am leaving for the cabin in two days. My cell phone rang, I saw it was Grace.
"What is it Grace?"
" Bonnie and Kathy talked to Ripper."
" And. You were right."
" He loves you but not enough to claim you."
" I am leaving in two days Grace."
" I will say good-bye now."
" I am sorry it has to be this way."
" Tell Ripper I love him and I am leaving town so he doesn't feel he has to claim me."
"And tell him I don't have to keep my promise."
" I am going back to bounty hunting."
" Tell him not to worry about me."
" Oh, and Grace."
" I will be getting a throw away phone so I can't be tracked."
" I love you Grace. Take care of Digger and be happy."
