Chapter 1: Piper
My name is Piper. I’m called a lot of names. I am a social worker that works with hard to place kids who are often in trouble with the law, and no one wants in their homes. I have worked with MCs who have members that are married but unable to have children and have chosen to become foster parents.
I am one of three women who will work with the MC’s. I have a 17-year-old son that I love more than my own life. He has never seen his father. In fact, his father denied him and accused me of sleeping with his brother.
Venom was 18 at the time. My best friend Kelly lied to Savage because she wanted him for herself. Venom helped me when Savage left me, and he has helped raise Zack. I hate men, I have a heart of stone now. I have no use for them. I especially hate that bitch ex-friend of mine.
I was on a home visit to a club member of the Red Devil MC when I was told that the Wild Wolf MC had moved back to town and that their club is just down the road from my cabin. Tammy the foster parent said, “Piper, rumor has it the VP, Savage is back for his woman, the woman he should never have left.”
“Who would that be I asked?”
“They are saying that word is out that you are off-limits. You belong to him.”
“Well Tammy, don’t worry. That was 10 years ago when we were in school. He left me I didn’t leave him remember.”
“ He chooses to marry Kelly and leave me and his son in the cold.”
“ I know Piper and I’m sorry that happened. None of us could believe that he did that. That he believed that whore and thought that you would cheat on him with his own brother.”
“ I looked down and said, there is one more thing. His club is also taking over your favorite bar.”
“ Well shit.”
“ That is the only good bar to dance. That is not going to stop us from going outright” I asked smiling?
“Nope, we are still going dancing and fuck them all.”
“Got to go to my next visit talk to you later,” I said getting into my car and driving away. I had to pull over at a small park as the tears were flowing. He is back. I fucking hate him.
You still love him, and you know it my mind said. I wiped the tears away and hardened my heart. The whole town will know soon. We are not that big. I started my car and drove to my next visit.
Again, I heard all about Savage. I listened but said nothing. Laurie said “have you heard the news?”
“Your boyfriend is back in town.”
I kept a straight face and said “he is just that. An old boyfriend and I don’t care. He needs to stay away from me.”
“ I heard he divorced Kelly one month later and cut her off.”
“ Not my problem,” I said. Completed the visits and scheduled my next one before getting in my car. I need to fight. Then I remember I have a fight in a few days.
I started my car and drove to the cabin. How am I going to tell Zack that his father's club moved back to town? As for telling everyone, he was back in town to claim his woman, that is a laugh.
I remember the day he accessed me of cheating with his brother. We were both in shock. But what hurts the most was when he took my ex-best friend as his wife.
Then he threw in my face Kelly was having his child. My child was not his. He yelled in front of all our friends that his brother was the father of my child.
Then all hell broke out. Our friends were in shock. Beast his friend and president of the MC kept telling Savage he was making a big mistake.
But savage refused to listen to him. I stopped going out, I withdrew and cried all the time. The only one who understood what I was going through was Tara.
If it was not for her I would not be where I am today. It has been 10 years since I even saw or talked to any of them. I just got my life back together again.
No, they are back. I hate Savage and Kelly. I hate her family. Especially her sister. She backed Kelly's lie about seeing me and Savage's brother together.
I just need to stay away from them. Zack hates his father. We told him the truth of why his dad is not here, why his uncle is helping to raise him.
My son is the most important thing to me. Zack and his friends keep me sane. But right now I feel like I am unraveling again. Like I want to grab Zack and run.
But, I can't do that. I need to pull myself together, show no emotions but hate. Hate for Savage and Kelly. To keep that wall around me that keeps men out.
