Bron walked into the restaurant beaming
with Jake on her arm. They were escorted to the table
and Bounce was the first to see them. “You look beautiful
Mom!” Bounce said with excitement.
“Thank you baby,” as she walked over
and dropped a kiss on her cheek. Kevin watched, don’t
bend over again or what’s in that sweater is going
to fall out. He didn’t know whether to be pissed
or happy about the way she was dressed. His eyes
quickly moved to his brothers, well those asses don’t
miss much. Tim’s married too.
Stevie was watching Kevin, who didn’t
know what to say as his jaw hung open when Bron bent
over to kiss Bounce.
Anne giggled to herself and looked
at her son, “Close your mouth dear.”
Bron grinned at Kevin, as the gentlemen
stood up while she took her seat next to him. Bron
looked a Kevin, “Are you in a better mood today?”
She asked sweetly.
“I am now,” he stuttered out. He
was stunned by those clothes. Those pants, she’s
got those pants on. She knows those pants get to
me. I told her she couldn’t wear them anymore. His
mind was set off in a different direction just over
a pair of pants.
Bron leveled her eyes at Kevin who
was staring at her intently lost in his own thoughts.
“That’s good. So, what is so damn important that
you have the audacity to command my presence at a
meal? Who the hell do you think you are?”
Bounce winced at the use of the bad
words again, “Mom you promised!”
Bron looked at Bounce, “I’m sorry
Bounce I’m just very angry with Kevin right now.”
Bron felt the fingers on her face
and pressure; her head was force to turn to face Kevin.
He had actually grabbed hold of her face and forced
her to look at him. Kevin fingers were biting into
her jaw. “I commanded your presence at a meal so
I could tell my family how important you are to me
and that I love you.” It came out as a matter-of-fact
statement with a controlled fury behind it. You witch
I will get you for this, he thought to himself.
Jake knew it was coming and Carlos
knew it too. They exchanged looks to see if they
should break it up before one of them took a swing
at each other. Stevie was amused. Kevin was back
and not managing any self-control.
Jerald, Tim, and Anne were taken
aback by the exchange. There was enough anger between
the two that you could feel it resonating through
the room. “Well now that we know that Kevin you can
let go of Bronwyn,” his mother spoke in an angry voice.
Kevin’s hand dropped immediately
from Bron’s face upon hearing his mother’s words.
She hadn’t talked to him like that since he was in
school. It was loud and crystal clear.
Anne pushed her chair back as Kevin
and Bron both looked at her. Now they were upset
that their anger had gotten the best of both them
in public. “It seems Kaylin was right. My son does
have a dark side.” Anne watched Kevin’s eyes grow
dark in his head. Bron grabbed for her glass of ice
water at the statement. “Right Kaylin or should I
Kevin turned swiftly to Bron, “What
did you do?” came flying out of him.
Bron lowered her head slightly.
She didn’t want to tell him but she knew there was
no way out of it now. “I sent Night Train to your
mom when we were in Chicago?”
Kevin’s face contorted with anger
and Bron raised her head to look at him. He could
see the fear in her face as he ground his jaw together
and waited for the explanation.
“I’m sorry,” she whispered at him.
Her anger was gone and now she felt like a fool.
The anger on his face made her somewhat relieved that
they were at least surrounded by people; it was the
dark side of Kevin.
“No you’re not, you did it get even
with me,” Kevin spat at her.
Everyone was watching the two of
them work this out of their system. Anne could tell
that these two had been simmering since just after
she got there. Jerald was amused, Bron would challenge
Kevin until it was a physical challenge and then she
would back down. This marriage should be real interesting
when we get home, he mused.
“Why did she feel she had to get
even Kevin?” Anne inquired.
Oh no, Bron panicked, she’s going
to find out. I don’t want the woman to know I was
just given to her son like a piece of fucking luggage
and he accepted me. “Nothing Mrs. Richardson, I was
being childish. I was upset over a comment he made
that’s all.” Bron was almost in tears. This isn’t
right, I didn’t ask for this. I can’t take anymore.
She felt Kevin’s arm come around her and his lips
were at her ear. “I said I was sorry then and that
it would never ever happen again. It won’t, I’m sorry.”
Bron picked her head up, locked her
eyes on his, and whispered, “I’m sorry too. This
is stupid and immature. I came down here to bring
you down a peg or two. Will you forgive me?”
“Depends,” Kevin replied as he watched
her shocked expression.
“On what now?” she said as she continued
to stare at his eyes.
“If you’ll forgive me too,” as he
leaned over and kissed her forehead.
“I do,” she whispered on his neck.
“Can we eat now?” Bounce whined.
Everyone laughed realizing that Bounce didn’t really
understand what was going on. As they began to eat,
Bounce winked at her mom who returned it with a smile.
I’ll never get one over on you kiddo, Bron thought.
Jerald spoke while everyone ate.
“I’m sure this wouldn’t have happened if we hadn’t
been sprung on you guys.”
“Probably not,” Kevin laughed as
his arm drifted down between the back of Bron’s seat
and her bottom. Bron gave Kevin a wily smile, and
what are you trying to find out Lurch, she thought
“So Kaylin,” Jerald laughed.
“Don’t call me that please,” Bron
“Sorry Bronwyn, my mom wanted to
know if you plan on changing that last chapter of
Night Train?” he asked. Bron choked on her food and
blushed. Kevin removed his hand and set it in his
own lap temporarily. It slowly moved over to Bron’s
lap under the table.
Kevin figured it was time to turn
the tables on Bron, she wore the clothes and she knew
what the possibilities were, that’s why she wore them.
He snaked his hand between her legs and began rubbing
her the inside of her thigh with his thumb. He slowly
moved up her leg to his target. Kevin looked at Stevie
with a smirk. If anyone could tell it would be him.
Stevie peeked at Bron and then gave Kevin a big smile.
Yep he knew.
“I’m sure I will, as soon as I have
time,” she said mildly. She couldn’t think. What
the frig is he doing? I’m ready to jump out of this
damn chair. I think he’s lost his mind.
“Mom I have to go” Bounce said quietly
while looking at her mom. Bron popped out of the
chair as soon as she said it. “Ok, come on I’ll take
you.” She pushed out of her throat.
Kevin chuckled at Bron’s sudden departure
and so did Stevie. Everyone else was clueless and
he liked it that way. Kevin turned to Jerald to see
a grin tugging at his face. Well maybe everyone else
and he grinned at him. Bron wasn’t gone from the
table for two minutes when the same question came
out of Jerald, Tim, and Stevie. “Are you going to
ask her?” he heard.
Kevin chuckled, “Not with all of
you here. I have something special in mind.”
Stevie began to laugh. “Talk to
Mc today Stevie?” Kevin asked with a slight laugh.
“Yes I did,” as he settled down.
“Well when are you going to ask her?
You almost killed each other a half hour ago.” Jerald
was annoyed at not knowing what Kevin had planned.
He usually wasn’t that secretive.
“You’ll know by sometime tomorrow,”
Kevin answered with amusement, as Bron and Bounce
Bron sat back down and Kevin announced
he had to leave. He called the waitress over and
signed the check. As he stood up he grabbed Bron’s
hand and pulled her out of the chair. “Walk with
me,” he whispered to her. Carlos knew better than
follow. When Kevin was ready to leave Bron would
come back to the table.
They walked to just outside the restaurant
door to a small alcove with a pay phone it in. “I
want my kiss,” he grinned.
“After what you just did in there,
no kisses for you,” Bron frowned at him.
“Why not?” as he leaned closer and
pushed her into the wall, “You liked what I did in
“No I didn’t. Besides your family
is here,” she sighed as she tried to figure out away
to get out from under him.
Kevin figured she couldn’t take anymore,
now he was being a tease. “So I can’t kiss you until
they leave?” he questioned her.
“That’s right,” as she hugged him
and walked back in the restaurant. He watched her
walk; I’m putting them on a plane tomorrow night he
yelled in his head. I’ll get my kisses later tonight
darlin, he grinned as his body shuddered and he felt
that aching need between his legs.
“You look awful damn happy.” Carlos
smirked as he walked up to him.
“I am, I am,” he repeated with delight
and anticipation as they went to meet the rest of
Bron finished the meal with both
families and enjoyed herself immensely, then they
headed to the concert. The show was fantastic. The
fellas were back to normal including Kevin. On the
way back to the hotel, Anne turned to Jerald and whispered
to him. “I’m disappointed. I thought he would ask
her at dinner or at the concert.”
Jerald whispered back, “I am too,
but I think he wants it to be private. You know how
When they got back to the hotel,
Bron put Bounce to bed. Stevie noticed Bron’s growing
frustration as they had come to call it, thanks to
Kevin. “Hey Bron are you okay?” he asked.
“Yes I’m fine. Why don’t I look
okay?” she asked with curiosity.
“Yeah I guess so. You just seem
a little frustrated,” he chuckled.
Bron spun around, “You guys spend
too much time talking to each other. I know you figured
out what was going on downstairs too. If he ever
does that to me again, I’m going to slap him right
up side the head.”
Stevie laughed as he walked over
and hugged her, “I’m sorry.”
Bron returned the hug, “It just feels
good to want someone again and to know that you are
wanted. It’s been along time.” Bron kissed his cheek.
“Good night,” she turned and left, quietly shutting
Bron knocked on Kevin’s door and
went in. “Hey darlin’ come sit with me,” he said
from the couch with a wicked grin on his face.
“No, I’m going to bed. I just stopped
to say good night,” she smiled. Tim and Jerald responded
the same back to her. “Where’s your mom?” Bron asked
as she searched the room with her eyes.
Kevin patted the seat next to him
on the couch, “She went to bed.”
“Oh,” Bron smiled, “Well goodnight
Lurch,” and she blew him a kiss. Oh, the look of
disappointment was written all over his face, as she
closed the door.
“Witch,” Kevin groaned as he looked
at the closed door and tossed himself back on the
couch. Kevin heard his brothers laughing and it was
“Hey Kev we’re sorry,” Jerald laughed.
“You look real sorry,” as he turned
his head to look at them. “Why don’t you go to bed?”
he huffed out.
“Nah, it’s to early,” Tim snickered
Go to freaking bed, Kevin groaned
in his head. “Well I’m tired and I need my sleep,”
as he turned the television off.
“I wouldn’t exactly call you tired
bro,” Jerald chuckled.
“Yes I am,” he groaned as he rolled
on the couch away from them. He closed his eyes and
began working on his plans again. He knew he could
outlast them but he dozed off a little.
He did wake up when he heard Tim
say, “Think he’s sleeping?”
“Yeah he’s out, no alley cat struttin’
for him tonight,” Jerald laughed. Kevin heard them
go to bed after they turned the lights off and locked
Kevin rolled over and grinned in
the dark after awhile. Time to deliver my kisses
as he crawled off the couch and snuck out the door.
