Kevin awoke even earlier than usual
the next morning, nerves he assumed. He gazed at
the ceiling and contemplated on what was going to
happen today. I hope I’m doing the right thing, it
could push her over the edge, he thought internally.
As he lay on his back he realized that no matter what,
he wasn’t letting her go. If she needed help he would
get it for her, even if she didn’t want it.
He glanced over to her; she lay there
on her side sleeping. Her butt was tucked next to
his hip, her head resting in the crook of his shoulder
and the sheet resting on her hips. Kevin thought
about last night. It seemed that they were both insatiable.
Something happened last night. Bron lost control
for the first time. The need was there and they took
and gave to each other. He rolled on his side careful
not to wake her. He ran his index finger up and down
“Oh Kev, no I can’t,” she said quietly.
“That’s okay, I don’t think I could
if I wanted to,” as he gently kissed her shoulder.
Bron began to stretch, “Oh that hurts,”
she groaned. “I’m to old for this shit.”
“Never to old to make love,” he whispered
on the back of her neck.
Bron sighed, “Oh that’s what you
call what happened out there last night.”
Kevin chuckled softly, “No, that
was animalistic sex.”
Bron giggled and so did he. “I’ll
make the coffee, while you go shower.” He slowly
sat up and then stood up. “Ohh,” he mumbled as he
Bron laughed as she lay on her side,
facing away from him, “Sounds like I’m not the only
one getting old.”
Kevin turned and popped his hand
on her ass, “Shower Witch.”
Bron grumbled and sat up, “This isn’t
funny.” She stood up and dragged herself to the shower,
with the sheet trailing behind her. Once in the shower
the hot water worked it’s magic and she felt better.
She quickly dressed and headed for her coffee.
She walked back out into the suite
and he handed her a coffee cup. “What time is it?”
she asked. “Seven,” he said with one eye open. Bron
yawned at him, “I’d make you breakfast but there is
“We’ll get something on the road,”
he informed her. “Go take a shower, you’ll feel better,”
she told him. Kevin glanced at his watch again might
as well he thought, I have time.
Kevin took a shower and dressed.
They quickly packed up the remaining items and placed
them by the door to leave. The bags were picked up
by a Carlos and put on the bus. Bron settled to read
the paper. “I’ll be right back, don’t go anywhere,”
he told her. Bron frowned at him, like I’d get that
far anyway, she thought as she watched people milling
around in the hallway.
Kevin walked down to A.J. and Mary’s
room and the door was open. He glanced at his watch
it was now quarter to eight and his anxiety was rising.
Kevin walked in sat in a chair but never said a word.
He watched them finish packing and kept checking his
watch. “Are you almost ready?” as he checked his
“Yes,” Mary answered as she watched
Kevin take on a different personality. A.J. looked
at her as enough to say leave him alone and she did.
Kevin watched as the hallway cleared and people went
to their buses. It didn’t take long for the floor
to empty, they had to leave. Kevin had timed it this
way for just that reason. His thoughts were interrupted
as he heard Bron screaming his name over and over
“Son-of-a-bitch!” he yelled as he
tore out the door with A.J. and Mary behind him.
“I told you eight,” Kevin yelled
as he hit the suite door and saw Mc. “Kevin I tried,
she won’t let me near her.” Mc was speaking to him
as he followed Kevin in the room. “It’s too late,
she’s too scared, make her mad.”
Bron had backed herself to the far
end of the room and was shaking and still screaming
for him. She was watching the man on the couch.
Kevin headed towards her slowly; as he approached
he spoke softly to her. “Hey darlin’ I’m here.”
Bron stopped yelling for him but didn’t look at him
and she was still shaking.
“Come on Bron it’s okay,” he spoke
as he reached for her. Oh my God she loosing it,
this was a mistake. I did this, it’s my fault.
“Don’t touch me,” she screamed as
she shoved his hand away, but never looked at him.
Bron’s eyes were locked on the man sitting on the
couch. He leered at her with a menacing smile and
she began to cry.
Kevin couldn’t stand this, “Come
on baby,” as he stepped forward. The closer he got,
the more she backed herself further into the corner
and away from him. Mc’s words rattled through his
head Kevin leapt for her and grabbed her by the shoulder,
clamping down as hard as he could. “You stop this
right now!” he yelled in her face as he shook her.
Bron tried to wrestle away from him. “Bron stop!
You’re acting like a child!” as he fought to capture
her hands. “Grow up!” he screamed at her.
Bron raised her face to his, “How
dare you,” she hissed at him.
Kevin scowled at her, “What, you’re
acting like a baby dammit!” Bron raised her hand
to slap him. “Don’t you hit me, I didn’t do anything
to you,” he growled at her.
“You’re right,” as she broke away
from him flying to the couch. Bron swung her arm
back and hit the man directly in the face with everything
she had. She watched his head roll back and the blood
come from his nose. Bron felt a sudden rush of adrenaline.
She was getting ready to do it again when Webster
yelled at her, “Stop! You can’t hit him.”
Bron stopped and looked at her worst
nightmare. “What’s the matter Chica? Did you miss
me?” Bron growled and doubled up her fist. Kevin
ran up behind her and grabbed her in a bear hug.
“Let me go!” she yelled at him.
“NO!” Kevin yelled trying to gain
control of her flailing limbs. He physically lifted
her off the floor trying to restrain her.
“Let me please!” she screamed at
him trying to kick him to break his hold.
The man looked at Kevin, “She likes
it rough.” Kevin lost it, dropped Bron, and doubled
up his fist. “ENOUGH!” was shouted from the open
Everyone in the room froze. Lenny
dropped his head and Mc looked at the door, “What
the fuck are you doing here?”
The man walked into the room, “I’m
here to get my brother.”
“You bastard!” Bron screamed. Kevin
grabbed both of her arms, restricting her movements,
unsure of her next action. He had figured out who
it was by just the one sentence the man spoke.
Two other men followed the man into
the room with Jake behind them. The man went and
stood in front of Bron. She was immediately flanked
by Mc and Kevin holding her in her place. Jake stood
behind the other two men.
“Solarez, what are you doing here?”
Mc growled at him, trying to control the anger building
“Jake called me last night, he said
that my brother was in town and wouldn’t leave your
property alone.” Solarez answered him.
Bron surged forward slightly, but
Kevin wasn’t letting go of his grip on her, Solarez
never flinched. “I am not his property. I don’t
belong to him anymore. I belong to him,” she yelled
as she backed up into Kevin. “
So I see Chica,” Solarez smiled at
her. “Don’t call me that you prick,” she growled
Mary and A.J. stood back on the wall,
this was too unreal for either one of them to comprehend.
Not to mention the fact that they both were scared
out of their minds.
Solarez turned to Lenny who was sitting
on the couch. “You took this woman by force in her
own home. You did it on the day she was to bury her
husband. You killed her husband. I told you to stay
away from her and her family along time ago. You
did it to hurt Mc and not for any other reason.”
Mike interrupted Solarez, “Sir, I
suggest you stop. I am a police officer.”
Solarez turned to Mike, “I know that
Solarez turned back to Lenny, “You
threatened an innocent little girl… Bron’s gentleman
friend had to send her child away from her to his
mother’s because of you.”
Lenny snarled at his brother, “She
is Mc’s, not his. I want her.”
Kevin went crazy at the remark, “She
is mine, Mc gave her to me.”
Bron shook off Kevin’s grip and stepped
up to Lenny. “I will never be yours Lenny, not by
force or any other way,” she hissed. Bron pointed
to Kevin, “That man rules me. I do what he wants
me to do. I sleep with him and only him. I will
only make love to him. He saved me from you and I
will thank him for that till the day I die.”
Lenny’s face went red with rage.
Bitch you will be mine one way or another, he thought.
He sat up quickly and Kevin shoved him back down.
“You heard her, she’s mine and always will be.” Lenny
narrowed his eyes at Kevin, “Not if she is dead.”
Solarez hauled off and punched his
brother in the face, knocking his head back to the
couch. He motioned one of the gentlemen forward.
Grabbing an envelope that the man offered him, Solarez
handed the envelope to Mike. “There is enough documentation
in that envelope to put this man away for murder,
rape, stalking, and attempted murder.”
Webster was shocked, “But how?”
Solarez glanced at Mike, “My brother has a big mouth,
and people talk to me.”
Lenny shook the haze off from the
last punch he had received. “I’m your brother,” he
spoke as his voice cracked. “Not anymore. Get him
out of here.” Mike and the two men that came in with
Solarez ushered Lenny out of the suite.
Bron began to shake and Kevin wrapped
himself around her like he normally did. Solarez
turned to her. “I know you are hurt and I can’t fix
the broken things, but you’ll not have to fear him
“You’re no better,” she looked at
him, feeling Kevin around her gave her courage.
“Scaring a woman was wrong and I’m
sorry. Mc and I will reach an agreement to no longer
Bron glared at him, “I hope you can
stick to it.”
Solarez dropped his head and then
reached into his pocket, “I have something for you.”
Jake jumped forward and Mc called him off, “Easy Jake.”
“This is for your daughter,” as he
handed to her. Bron gave it to Kevin to open and
she looked at it. “I don’t want it, it’s dirty,”
and she handed it back to him.
“No, it’s not mine, it’s Lenny’s.
My father left it to him. It is only fair that it
should go to your daughter, her father can leave her
Solarez tried to hand it back to
Bron and she shoved it away as the tears ran down
her face. Bron looked at Mary who was gently crying
along with Bron. She grabbed the envelope and walked
to Mary. “This should take care of what you really
want to do.” As Bron tried to give it to her, Mary
pushed it way. “Please for me, take it,” Bron begged
her. Mary opened it and looked at it, “Are you sure
Bron?” Bron nodded as more tears fell, “Yeah I’m
Solarez walked to the door and then
turned to Bron. “I’m sorry, very sorry,” he spoke
Everyone stood there for a minute,
trying to absorb what happened. A.J. broke the silence,
“We have a bus to catch.” He wasn’t sure if it was
the right thing to do, but it would at least shock
everyone back to reality.
Bron never said anything as she stood
there. Jake walked up to her, half crying. “I’m
going to miss you little sister.” Bron was emotionless
at the remark. Kevin walked up behind her, “Why?”
Jake looked at Kevin, “Lenny is over
with, and my job is done.” Kevin shook his head no
and mouthed bus, with no voice. Mary quickly walked
over and pulled Jake towards A.J. and her by the door.
“Kevin needs you, Bron needs you. Go get on the bus,”
she whispered to him.
Bron turned to Mc and the sobs came
full force. He walked to her and wrapped his arms
around her. “I’m sorry little girl. I love you so
much.” Mc kissed her forehead when she didn’t answer
him. He glanced at Kevin who was standing behind
Bron. They both were scared. They had expected the
tears and the anger but not this. “I want you to
go with Kevin now.” Bron looked at him with a blank
expression. “Home,” she muttered softly.
“No, not home you are going to go
with Kevin,” he said softly to her. “Okay,” was her
Mc was becoming frightened at Bron’s
lack of anger. This is not her normal reaction at
being told what to do. He looked over at Mary and
she frowned. Mc closed his eyes a minute and thought
about what to do. I can push her, but I don’t want
to make this any worse. It has already started.
Mary will be with her and she will be fine. “Go with
Kevin Bron. I will call you later,” Mc gently pushed
her hand towards Kevin’s.
Kevin grabbed her hand and led her
down the hall and out of the hotel to the bus. They
walked on to a bus full of people. Kevin wasn’t pleased;
this wasn’t supposed to be like this. He wasn’t going
to argue with them now he had no choice. All of the
other buses had left. Nick looked at Kevin as Bron
walked by him and headed for Kevin’s bunk. “Is she
okay?” he asked Kevin.
“I don’t know yet,” Kevin answered
him. They watched Bron crawl up to Kevin’s bunk,
her jacket and boots came were dropped out of it to
Kevin took his boots and coat off
tossing them in the booth. He went to his bunk and
crawled in. Lying down next to her, she curled up
as close as she could to him. “Just hold me,” she
whispered, as she pushed closer to him.
“Sure darlin’,” he answered as
he wrapped himself around her and she began to cry
herself to sleep. Kevin couldn’t figure out what
was going on. Where is the anger, he thought as he
held her to him and let her cry it out.
