“Ember, come on let’s go for a walk or something. All you do is play with the baby and help Mia cook. I’m bored.” I watched her and Mia roll their eyes at me at the same time. Fucking sisters, I said to myself. Beautiful sisters, okay stop it.
“As soon as dinner is done for all you men living in this house. We will do something okay?” I sighed and crossed my arms. “Is he always like this?” Ember asked Mia. She smiled and shook her head.
“Try beating him at a game and see just how pissed off he really gets,” Mia said with a huge grin on her face.
“Hey, shut up.” Both of them went into a fit of laughter. I walked out as Logan walked in. He just looked at me as I rolled my eyes.
“What’s his problem?” Logan asked as I went out back. We have been at this place now for almost a month. Logan and his men still think we need to lay low. I’m fine with that but I’m board out of my fucking mind. Ember is doing so much better with everything and is grateful to have Mia in her life. Just like Mia’s style. She has been amazing to Ember. They are already like best friends. I share a room with Ember still. I’m on the couch and she won’t let me leave. I make her feel safe. She reminds me of Mia in the sense that she is a sweetheart with a big heart. She is older than Mia and she is just as beautiful as Mia, if not more. I already know her. She loves romantic comedy and she has to have a cup of tea hot tea before bed and a cup of coffee first thing in the morning. Her face has freckles and goes into her dimples when she laughs or smiles.
She has little insecurities that make no sense. At least that’s what I tell her. She thinks her ass is too big and her eyes are too small for her face. Her ass is amazing and so are her eyes. Okay so maybe I have a little crush on her. I hear the back door opening thinking it’s one of the guys. Ember walks out to me. “Dinner is ready.” I don’t know what made me do it, but I grabbed her arm and made her sit in my lap. She let out a giggle.
“Steven, what are you doing.”
“Are you hungry?” Her sweet voice asks me.
“Not really, how about you?” She looked down at me and just shook her head. “Let’s go for a walk.” She nodded at me and moved herself off my lap. I took her hand and we walked off towards the river down behind the house. None of us ever went past the river. I stopped as she went to the water’s side. She kicked her shoe off and stuck her foot in. Then she turned to face me. She had a look in her eye that I wasn’t used to. She starts to lift her shirt off. My mouth almost dropped open. “What are you doing?”
“I’m going in the water.”
“Are you crazy? It’s too cold.”
“You going to let me go in alone?” She said as her eyes stayed on mine and she dropped her shorts to the ground.
“Fuck no,” I said and removed my teeshirt. She was only to her knees as I ran into the water next to her. Fuck! the water was so cold. She was laughing when I came back up for air. She stood in front of me in nothing more than a bra and lacy panties. I was warming up fast as she just stood there not moving. “You had better get your ass in here.” She smiled and run next to me and went under. She came back up screaming.
“My god it’s cold.” I laughed, this time. She swam closer to me and as if I had been doing it all this time I pulled her cold body into mine. She was breathing heavily.
“Can I kiss you?” I whispered to her. She nodded her head and our lips met.
“Logan babe, can you check on Ember and Steven?” I had the baby in my arms. Logan sat his fork down and got up. Collin made a whipping noise and Logan walked over and punched him in the head.
“What the fuck?” Collin said and I couldn’t help but laugh. So did the rest of the guys. Logan headed out back and I did my best to eat my dinner. Bean got up and walked over to me.
“Here let me take her. I’m done and you can eat.” I smiled up at him as he took her. Bean is very good with my little sister. Logan came walking back in with a huge grin on his face.
“Where are they? Are they going to eat?” Logan just kept smiling. “What?”
“They um, they will eat later.”
“Okay, what are they doing?” Logan walked up to me and whispered into my ear.
“Each other.” My mouth fell open.
“Really?” He nodded at me. “Just out there in front of everyone?”
“Well no, but they are in the river.”
“Oh my?” I said turning my head. Logan just winked at me and walked off. I wanted to look but I chose not to. I cleaned up and Bean fell asleep on the couch with My baby sister in his arms. Everyone in this house loved her. I was washing dishes when I heard laughing coming up to the back door. Steven came in with Ember in his arms. He sat her down when they both saw me.
“Oh Mia, I’m sorry let me go change and I’ll help you.” Before I could tell her no she took off leaving me alone in the kitchen with Steven. All I could do was smile.
“Nothing,” I said smiling as I was washing the counters down.
“Shut up Mia.” He said.
“Hey, I didn’t say a thing.”
“You don’t have to, I know you.” I turned and looked at him.
“Are you happy?”
“Then that’s all that matters.” Steven walked over to me and kissed my cheek as Logan came walking into the room.
“How many times do I have to tell you to fuck off my girl.” Steven just rolled his eyes.
“I have my own.”
“Yeah, I saw that.” I just looked down and shook my head.
“Logan,” I said as he came up behind me and kissed the back of my neck. Then I heard Logan whisper in my ear.
“Yeah but it’s not the sister he really wants.” I turned and smacked his chest.
“You don’t know that. Now knock it off before you don’t have one.” Logan just smiled and stood back. I looked up but Steven was already out of the kitchen. I turned back to Logan. “You’re going to sleep alone tonight.”
“Bet.” I just shook my head and finished cleaning the kitchen. I was sitting on my bed on my computer. Logan was in the shower listening to his rap music. Bean was still asleep on the couch with Hope. I grabbed my headphones and started to mess around on the computer. I don’t know what made me think to go into my old email, but I did. My mouth fell open when I saw that my newest email was from my mother. I looked at it for a moment before I clicked it.
This is mama, I don’t know if this will ever find you, but I guess it’s the only way I know how to reach out to you right now. Your father has lost his mind and I don’t know how long your brother and sister and myself have. I still keep him thinking we are on his side, but I don’t know how much longer I can keep this up. He has put out a hit on you and a girl named Ember. He is actually crazy Mia. I heard him with my own ears. I have no idea who he was talking to or who will come after you. Honey, I need you to run and stay away from us. Please don’t ever try to find us. I believe he will kill you. For why I don’t know. I don’t know this man I’m living with. This email is secret, but I don’t know for how long. I love you with everything I have,
“Logan!” I yelled out so loud. He came running out of the bathroom naked.
“What? What’s wrong.” Just as he said that everyone came running into my room with guns drawn. Poor Logan standing there naked.
“Damn it, Logan, put some clothes on,” Collin said as they all looked away from him. I sat there on my bed with tears just pouring down my eyes. Logan grabbed his robe off the wall and walked over to me.
“Baby what’s wrong?” I turned my computer towards him. The others walked over and everyone read the email.
