I woke up to Em shaking the hell out of me, Just like in college.
“No. Go away.” I groaned.
“Like hell, who’d you sneak off to talk to last night?” She asked now practically laying on top of me. I sat up knowing she wasn’t going to give up until I told her.
“Remember that biker from the webcam?” I asked her while trying to control my red mop of hair.
“The man I wished put this baby in my womb yes, continue.” She said and crossed her hands.
“Well-” I told her about Snake and my father and what Dean did to me after that the warf all of it by the time I was done we were both dressed and packing up our things.
“Wow. They really cut his balls off?” She asked her brown eyes huge. I nodded my head and pulled my tank top over my black lacy bra and made sure my worn jean shorts were rolled evenly on each side. Em was wearing a white halter top dress that ended around mid thigh. We carried all of her things to my car and I pulled out when I got a call that came through the bluetooth in my radio.
“Hello?” I asked after I pressed the button on my steering wheel.
“You didn’t call me again.” Dean’s voice growled through my speakers. Em’s eyes got huge and looked at me.
“I was going to call you when we stopped for food.” I explained smiling.
“That wasn’t the deal baby, you’re just asking to be punished with my bi-”
“Em can hear you, Reaper.” I cut him off quickly. I looked over at Em and she was fanning herself.
“No, please finish your sentence. It’s been a while.” Em said to him causing me to laugh and Dean to grunt.
“Make sure she eats and doesn’t drive when she’s tired.” Dean’s voice was stern, I rolled my eyes and Em laughed.
“I promise, sir.” Em mocked soon after he hung up muttering something about Alex falling down the stairs.
“Who’s Alex?” Em asked.
“Dean’s brother.” I replied after switching lanes.
“Oh, is he as hot as Dean?” She asked. I bursted out laughing.
“Only if you’re a cougar. He’s 17.” Em pouted. Slumping in her seat.
21 hours later and I pulled into my door yard.
“This is your house?” Em asked her eyes huge.
“This is our house.” I corrected her. She looked at me and smiled. I gave her an awkward side hug then we got out I went and unlocked the door and she grabbed a couple of her boxes I turned on a few lights and followed her and grabbed the rest of the stuff. She followed me up to the second largest room and I pushed the door open placing her things down. I told her I would let her get comfortable. I walked down stairs and locked my car doors and the front door grabbing my phone and calling Dean The phone rang and his answering machine picked up I frowned.
’It’s Dean ‘The Reaper’ leave a message and if I think it’s important I’ll call ya back.’
“Hey Dean, I’m calling to check in. I’m home so I’ll come over tomorrow and pick up Sargent. Goodnight.” I said after the beep I hung up as I snapped the lights off as I walked into my room not bothering to take my clothes off I crawled under the cool blankets. Almost instantly falling asleep.
I woke up around noon the next day, I stretched then crawled out of bed and walked down stairs. When I heard two sets of voices frowning I walked to the back patio.
“Morning sleepy head.” Em laughed when she seen me. I smile back at her and look to see Chad sitting in the chair opposite of her. “You didn’t tell me your brother was so funny.” She laughed.
“That’s because he’s not.” I smirked at him when he flipped me off. “I’ve got to go to Dean’s house and pick Sargent up, you coming Em?” I asked.
“Sure, I want to meet Sargent.” She nodded while getting up following me into the kitchen. I poured myself a coffee and before Chad could say anything I pulled a beer out from the bottom of the fridge and popped the cap sliding it over to him.
“Thanks sis.” He said before taking a long chug.
“Beer at 12 in the afternoon?” Em lifted her eyebrows at us. You’re in for a real treat when you go to the club house.
“It takes the edge off.” Chad shrugged. After drinking my coffee I walked up stairs and got dressed in my cutt off white shorts and a black tight crop top that ended just over my belly button ring and slipped on my sandals. I went out and walked into Em’s room She was just pulling on her light blue jeans.
“You ready?” I asked smiling, she was always so slow getting ready. She nodded and grabbed her white tank top sliding it over her sports bra. When we got back to the kitchen Chad was gone and his beer bottle sat empty on the island. I shook my head and rinsed it out before throwing it in the recycling bin.
“Your brothers kinda hot.” Em smirked when I locked the house door.
When we got to Dean’s house his bike was gone but his truck was sitting in front of the door. I parked my car beside it and we got out Em gushed over his beautiful land. I knocked on the door before walking in Em stayed close to me when I heard Sergeants bark I smiled I heard his nails running down the stairs he cried when he seen me I knelt down and wrapped him in my arms.
“He’s beautiful. Your pictures don’t do him justice.” Em grinned when Sargent kissed her face. I looked up to see Alex standing in the doorway staring at Em.
“Hey Alex.” I smiled at him. “Where’s Dean?”
’He’s on a run. Won’t be back for a few days.” He muttered eyes still on Em. We stood up and I nodded. That’s probably why he didn’t answer his phone last night.
“Alright, do you need anything before we go?” I asked him. He shook his head and leaned against the wall. I sighed and rolled my eyes.
“Alex this Ember, but her friends call her Em. Em this is Alex.”
“Nice to meet you Alex.” We walked out with Sergeant on Em’s heels when my phone rang.
“Hello?” I asked tucking it into the crook of my neck as I dug in my pocket for my keys.
“Hey baby girl.” My Dad’s voice rang through. Feeling a little disappointed I got into the car.
“Hey Daddy, what’s up?”
“Can you come to the club house? I need to talk to you.” He asked using his boss voice.
“Sure. I’ll see you soon.” I hung the phone up and started driving to the club house.
“You want me to drop you home or do you want to come meet the guys?” I asked Em knowing how scary it is to meet a club house full of bikers.
“Let’s go get me a sexy biker!” She yelled grinning wildly. I shook my head at her.
“Is it possible you’re even more horny while pregnant?” I asked laughing.
We took Sergeant home and headed to the clubhouse, when we pulled in there was three of the older members standing outside I looked over and seen Em cross her legs I laughed and parked my car beside my Mom’s and got out. Em following close behind. I hugged the brothers outside and went into the club house and into my Dad’s office. I knocked and waited.
“Yup.” He said I shook my head and walked in. He was sitting at his desk with paperwork surrounding him. “Hey baby. Who’s this?” He asked looking up past his glasses.
“This is my roommate from college, Em this is my Dad the president.” I said then sat in the chair in front of his desk.
“Alright, well we have a Nomad comin’-” He started.
“What does that have to do with me?” I interrupted him.
“If you would let me finish. I need you to do his paperwork. I know you went to Vet school but your mother can’t do it for a bit so I need you to step up.” He said taking his glasses off. I frowned.
“Dad I have nothing to step up to. I have nothing to do with this club.” Except I’m an old lady…
“You are my daughter you have everything to do with this club.” His voice low. I seen Em stiffen.
“Fine. You win. But you’re matching my pay that I got from the SPCA.” I countered.
“Of course.” He smiled. I nodded and stood up just as the office doors busted open. I gasped when a man at least 6 foot busted in with piercing blue eyes and black hair. I looked over and seen Em check him out. I rolled my eyes. My Dad stood up behind me.
“Faye, Em this is Slasher.” My Dad walked over and shook his hand.
“Nice to meet you.” I nodded and Em just smiled sliding closer to my side.
“Who do I see about my paperwork.” He asked crossing his arms across his cut.
“That would be Faye. She’s my daughter.” Dad jerked his head motioning me to start with the work. I sighed and grabbed the documents from the filing cabinet behind the desk then walked out the door telling Slasher to follow me.
I sat down on the love seat in the main area by the bar Em sat next to me and Slasher sat across from us. I grabbed the papers and pen.
“Alright, what’s your birth name?” I asked looking up at his blue eyes.
“Greyson Jaye Saunders.” My pen froze in the middle of writing his last name.
“Any relation to Dean Saunders from this club?” I asked Em glanced at me.
“Yeah he’s my cousin.” He replied. I nodded my head wondering if Dean knew he was here.
“How long have you been with the MC?” I asked pen positioned.
“13 years. Joined when I was 18.” He leaned back in the couch his legs spread. I seen Em’s eyes flick to his crotch before looking away biting her lip.
“So you’re 31?” I asked writing it down.
“Yup.” I nodded.
“What was your mother chapter?” I asked curling my legs up to my chest.
“Devil’s Saints in California. I was there for 5 years before going Nomad.” He said looking bored.
“What was the reason for going Nomad?”
“Wanted to see the world. We done?” He asked standing up. I nodded wordlessly.
“I think I just seen the Devil, and I wanted to sin.” Em said fanning herself. I rolled my eyes and stood up.
“Come on, let’s go see if we can get you my old job at the SPCA.” I sighed. She nodded and followed me out the door.
After talking to Ann Em and I both were hired, we would just take the surgeries the other couldn’t which worked out well for both of us. So after showing her around the office we went home. We pulled in the driveway and my phone pinged with a text. Hoping it was Dean I unlocked it and quickly paled.
‘Do you really think Ember will protect you? I’ll kill her too.’
Matt was threatening her I felt bile rise in my throat unable to push it back down I opened my car door and puked. Instantly I felt Em’s hands on my back and pulling my hair back. After throwing up what little was in my stomach I sat back in my seat I looked over and seen my phone in Em’s hands.
“Faye, why didn’t you tell me he’s started again?” Em’s eyes held the pain she was feeling for me.
“I-I haven’t told anyone. I just thought I could deal with him alone.” I looked down at my hands.
“Why would you go through it alone after he damn near killed you last time?” She scolded.
I smiled at her. “You’re going to be a good Mom.” She smiled in return.
“You think so?” I nodded and got out of the car going to the garden hose to clean up the vomit. She got out and walked into the house. After I was finished I walked into the house to see Em in the kitchen making pasta. Smiling I went into the living room and turned the tv on and started on the paperwork from the club.
“Have you heard from Dean?” Em asked when she brought me in a bowl of food. I shook my head frowning.
“No but usually the brothers don’t contact home when they are on the road.” I explained.
“It doesn’t seem like a good life.” She said quietly. I agreed, being a biker and a biker’s Old Lady wasn’t a good life. “Why haven’t you told your Dad, Chad, or even Dean about Matt?” She asked. I sighed.
“I was raised around bikers, so I was raised to be tough and to not take shit from anyone. When I went to college and met you and Matt I thought I could stop being the daughter of the President of the Devil’s saints, and start being a normal girl. I guess I just lost myself when Matt started abusing me. I forgot how to fight back and soon he just killed the young spitfire girl from Boston and made a scared little girl from nowhere.” I rubbed Sergeant's head to hold back the tears.
“I watched you get abused for years. I watched him rip you down and break you physically, mentally, and emotionally. I stood beside you as he tried to push me away I held you and tried to force you to eat. I took you to the doctors over and over again I cleaned the blood and covered the bruises with make-up. You Faye, are the strongest person I know.” She held my eyes until she started to cry. “I chased that cocksucker down the road with my taser after you broke up with him to keep him away. Don’t think I won’t do it again.” I laughed remembering her with her bright pink taser threatening the guy that had tried to kill me.
“Thank you for always being there for me.” I smiled at her.
“You’re welcome. Thank you for taking care of me.” She smiled back. We sat like that for most of the night until about 2 in the morning when we finally went to bed.
