Bron curled up next to Kevin, “I’m
sorry. I didn’t mean to do that. It was an accident.”
Kevin wrapped an arm around her
and pulled her closer. “I know it was,” he whispered.
“I’m sorry for all the trouble
I’ve caused,” she said as her body shivered.
Kevin reached down and pulled the
blanket over both of them. Unconsciously he rubbed
her back to send the chills away.
Bron reached under his shirt and
began to caress his chest. Kevin shook slightly
as a result of the contact. Contact that he had
missed for too long. Silently he was thanking Nick
for doing something that he couldn’t do himself.
“It’s a good thing I have good brothers,” He sighed
as Bron’s hands continued their roaming.
Bron picked her head up and looked
at him and smiled, “Yes your brothers are fantastic.”
Kevin felt Bron tugging at his
t-shirt and sat up slightly to remove it. Tossing
it to the end of the bunk. “Better,” he smiled.
“Almost,” as her hand drifted to
the front of his jeans. “Oh,” he sighed and then
smirked, as he wiggled his jeans and boxers down
and then tossed them with the t-shirt.
“That’s much better,” as she crawled
on top of him. Bron lay there content with the
full body connection for a minute.
They both heard a noise outside
the bunk. Kevin pushed Bron to the side and rolled
over. He peeked out the curtain it was Nick.
Kevin watched him bend down and
pick up Bron’s clothes. Nick was totally mesmerized
by the top article of clothing. You dawg he thought.
Kevin leaned out, just a little to see A.J. at the
top of the aisle watching Nick. I don’t know what
the hell you two are up too, but it ain’t gonna
happen. Kevin leaned out of the bunk and grabbed
Bron’s underwear and bra off of the top of the pile.
“I’ll take those,” he chuckled.
“What! I’m just picking up,” he
Kevin shook his head, “Yeah right,”
and closed the curtain. A.J. was heard laughing
hysterically in the back of the bus.
Kevin turned back to Bron as he
tossed her clothes with his. “No more strip tease
acts when they’re around,” he warned her. “Where
were we before we were interrupted?” he whispered
Bron grinned as she slid on top
of him and straddled his hips. “Oh I was here and
you were going to show me how much you missed me.”
Kevin reached up and placed his
hands on her waist. “I don’t remember that,” he
“Well let me refresh your memory,”
she spoke as she reached down between them and began
stoking him gently.
Kevin groaned slightly, “I think
I’m beginning to remember.”
Bron grinned and increased the
pressure, “I forgot you’re the slow one of the bunch.”
Kevin gave her a lop sided smile,
“Slow darlin’. I’ll show you slow.” He gently
rolled her over and nestled himself between her
legs. Bron looked at him in shock as he entered
her at a crawling pace. She started to laugh she
couldn’t help it. Kevin was proving a point once
again. This was the arena that was his domain and
he was going to remind her of it. Such an ape,
she giggled to herself.
Kevin gazed at her, “You better
stop laughing like that or I won’t last,” as a case
of the giggles hit him also.
“I like slow,” she giggled even
harder watching the tormented look on his face.
Every time she laughed her muscles would tighten
Kevin started to move inside her
while she laughing, “This isn’t funny.”
“But it feels good,” he grinned.
“Yes it does,” as squeals of delight
Kevin chuckled out loud and then
whispered, “This is weird, even for me.”
Bron smiled at him, “Yeah but you’re
“Yes I am,” he said as he lowered
his head, he kissed her lips and drove his tongue
in her mouth. “Ummm,” he groaned as he pulled away.
He reached down and stroked her, “I want you to
be with me,” he whispered as pushed himself into
her deeper and her hips rose to meet him. Quietly
they settled into a rhythm as old as time. He felt
her hit her peak and a quiet groan escape her lips.
He quickly followed her with a soft moan as he buried
his head in her shoulder and neck.
Gently he lifted himself off her
and pulled her to him. “I love you Bronwyn Cooper,”
he whispered as he wrapped himself around her.
“I love you Kevin Richardson,” she returned to him.
Bron wiggled her self closer to him. “Do you want
to talk or sleep?” he asked tenderly. “Sleep now,
we’ll talk tomorrow,” she whispered. Kevin pulled
her even closer as they drifted off to sleep.
As Kevin drifted off to sleep he
thought about how quiet their lovemaking had been;
except for the laughing part that is. It’s been
so quite lately. There are too many people around
us all the time. I want it to be like that night
we went out in Chicago. But she’s back with me
and I’m happy with that for now.
Kevin woke around eight and Bron
was still sleeping. He could hear noises up front
but he couldn’t tell who it was. He wanted to wake
her and make love to her but he knew she was still
catching up on her lost sleep. Kevin gently slid
away from her and grabbed his boxers. He slid them
on then grabbed his jeans and shirt. Slowly he
backed out of the bunk. He covered her up to her
chin and closed the curtain.
Kevin stood in the aisle and slid
his jeans on. He walked back to the bathroom to
wash up and finish getting dressed. He went to
the booth in front and found Nick and Brian playing
“Morning,” he said as he poured
some coffee and went and sat down next to Nick.
“Morning,” they said softly concentrating on the
“Nick thanks for helping her, helping
us.” Kevin spoke as he sipped his coffee.
“I told you, no problem anytime.”
Nick answered as he made his move. Kevin set his
cup down, reached over, and gave his baby brother
a hug. He owed Nick so much now.
“Kev get the hell off me,” Nick
threw his arms up, trying to push him away.
“Isn’t that sweet,” Brian grinned.
“He loves you,” he added.
“Cute Bri, cute,” Nick was flustered
with the attention.
Nick looked at Kevin pensively,
“Is she mad at me? Is she going to be okay?”
Kevin smiled, “No she’s not mad
at you and yes she is going to be okay now.”
Brian asked Kevin, “What are you
going to do now.”
Kevin answered, “We’ll get married.”
The table was silent for a minute
as Brain watched for Nick’s reaction to the statement.
Nick smiled broadly, “Good then I get a sexy fic
writer for a sister in law or should I say mommy?”
They all laughed at his statement.
Mary crawled out of her bunk sleepily
and headed for the coffee pot. Her eyes were half
closed and she was well aware that this was the
first time they had ever seen her look like this
in the morning. Brian moved over for her to sit
next to him. She took a sip of her coffee and smiled
as her eyes opened. “Morning,” she grinned.
Kevin shook his head, “You’re as
bad as Bronwyn. I really need to get her off that
Mary grinned at him, “You try and
you’ll see a whole ‘nother side of that woman.”
Kevin smirked at her, “Not nice
“PMS twenty four and seven,” Mary
Kevin dropped his head to hide
his smile. “Forget it, after all this. She can
keep the coffee.”
Mary finished her cup and got up
to pour another one. She was slightly worried that
maybe Nick’s comments had brought the past back
to Bron. “How is she?” Mary asked Kevin as she
rejoined the group.
Kevin continued to drink his coffee,
“Good because I owe her an apology
for what we did to her.” Mary dropped her head,
more out of embarrassment than anything else. Strong-arming
her best friend was not her style.
Kevin reached across the table
and grabbed Mary’s hand, “She’ll forgive you. Don’t
Mary sighed out of relief. She
had been carrying a shit load of guilt about what
they had done.
“So what are your plans now?”
Mary asked Kevin.
“Man, you guys are a nosey bunch,”
“Oh, already been asked that this
morning?” as she looked at Nick and Brian.
“Yes and my plan hasn’t changed.”
Kevin mused out loud.
Mary laughed. Talk about a one-track
mind, he hasn’t even asked her yet.
“You had better improve on your
plan. She’s not a push over.” Mary said as she
drank her coffee.
“I know that,” Kevin laughed loudly.
The conversation turned to Bounce.
Mary asked Kevin how she was doing at his mothers.
Kevin said that they were getting along great.
Mary chastised him for sending her there. She knew
Bron wouldn’t like it. Bounce was a typical six
year old and repeated every conversation she heard
around adults. Especially Bounce since she was
always around adults. The statement hit home with
Kevin and he jumped up from the table. “I gotta
call my mom,” as he dashed off to find his cell
Nick and Brian laughed at the urgency
in Kevin’s voice. They watched him frantically
search the bus for the cell phone.
Brian looked at Mary, “I wonder
if Aunt Ann is going to mention Night Train to him,
since he is awaiting her response?”
Mary let the words sink and her
coffee cup almost dropped out of her hand, “Oh shit!”
Brian was snickering at Mary’s
response. “When did you find out about that?”
Mary asked him.
“My mom called me and told me Kaylin
sent it from Nick’s e mail to Aunt Ann.” Brian
“Oh!” Mary laughed aloud. “I
would love to be there the day they were introduced.
This is my fic writer mom she writes about sex and
me. You know what I love her too.” The three of
them burst out in peels of laughter. Kevin turned
from up front, as he was talking to his mom and
frowned at them.
Brian straightened himself up and
leaned towards Mary since Kevin was still watching
them. “You will be.” Broad smiles were plastered
all over Brian and Nick’s faces.
“Huh?” Mary looked at them with
“We invited Aunt Ann, Jerald, and
Tim to the Oakland concerts,” Brian giggled.
Mary’s mouth fell open slowly,
“Oh you bad boys,” she giggled.
“Don’t tell them,” Nick begged.
Mary couldn’t believe this. This
was going to be totally entertaining, excitement
crackled in the air. “I won’t. Is Bounce coming
too?” she asked.
“Of course, she was our back up
plan.” Nick laughed. “Besides Kevin’s being selfish
by keeping them apart. Bron needs to see her.”
Nick turned to Brian, “When he was little did he
have trouble sharing his presents?” as they burst
out in laughter again.
Kevin pulled the cell phone away
from his ear, “Shut up! I’m on the phone,” as he
turned his back to them.
Mary figured this was the first
fun they had in years and for a change it was at
Bron’s expense. “What did you tell his mom? She
is so ah Oh…” Mary stuttered.
“A fine upstanding woman,” Nick
looked at her with a smile.
“I told her that her son is very
much in love with the author of Night Train. She
already knew obviously that Bounce belonged to Kevin’s
girlfriend. Stevie filled them in on most of it
but not all of it.” Brian filled her in.
Mary shook her head, “Don’t you
think you should have let him tell his mother?”
“No,” they chimed.
“Why?” Mary asked.
Nick shrugged his shoulders, “He’s
very conservative around his family. Bron’s a chicken.
He would have them elope rather than her become
upset and embarrassed.”
Mary bit her bottom lip, you little
sneaks. “So what you’re saying is that you want
the big party after the I do’s”
“Yep,” Nick smiled. “They deserve
Mary glanced up towards Kevin,
“She won’t say anything to him will she?”
Brian answered her question, “No
she is too excited. She is talking to him on her
cell he just doesn’t know it. She’s on her way
to the airport now. She is too excited to meet
the mom of a well mannered little six year old.”
Brian began to laugh.
Mary raised her eyebrows, “Bounce
has been running her mouth?”
“In overdrive,” Nick laughed.
“This is going to be so good.
I owe her for a few of her stunts in the past.”
“Hey wait a minute. What about
sleeping arrangements?” Mary looked at both of
them not trusting either of them. She knew that
Kevin’s mom was as straight laced as they came.
Nick chuckled, “Well that’s not
our problem. They have to work that out themselves.
We were nice enough to get them there.” Nick tried
to contain his grin.
Mary shook her head, “He’s gonna
be so pissed. They just got back together.”
“We know,” they both laughed as
tears came streaming down their faces.
