Kevin quickly followed her to Carlos’s
door. They stood outside and Kevin leaned down to
her. “May I come in?” he snickered.
“They aren’t going to let you,” Bron
smiled. Kevin had confusion written all over his
face. “You don’t get it do you?” Bron giggled.
“Get what?” as he leaned his arm
on the doorway and saddled a little closer to her.
He was making his play.
“And they say I need a billboard,”
Bron groaned. Kevin grinned at her little comment.
Bron couldn’t figure out what to say she so she just
came right out, “We’re on a date Kevin.”
“Oh honey we are way past dating.
We missed out on that,” he smiled at her as he raised
his hand and ran the back of it across her cheek.
Bron knew he still didn’t get it.
“Kevin what did we do today?” Kevin shook his head,
leaned down to her face, “You were with me, you know
what we did today,” he began to caress her face, and
his eyes were settled on her lips. He wasn’t in the
mood for small talk he had something else in mind.
“Humor me,” Bron quipped steeling
her resolve as best she could.
“Okay, I’ll play. We went to the
mall, dinner, and the movies,” he spoke he bent to
“When do you do those things?” she
asked as she turned her head away from him, making
him miss his target. She giggled slightly at his
Suddenly he pulled his head back,
“Oh darlin’,” he exclaimed as he looked at her. “They
set us up,” he groaned.
“Oh yes they did. We’re dating.
We missed that part and they are trying to give it
back to us, all in one night,” she smiled.
Kevin turned and glanced at Brian
and Nick standing at the end of the corridor. They
weren’t saying anything to each other but were watching
him. “Can I still come in?” he whispered as he turned
back to her.
“They won’t let you. You won’t get
pass the door,” she chuckled. “This is dating the
old fashioned way. Your mom’s way.”
“I want to test your theory,” as
he grabbed for the doorknob and pushed the door open.
“Hey Train, I need your help,” he
heard Nick shout down the hall. Nick and Brian headed
directly for both of them.
“Told you,” Bron hid her smile.
“Come on man it’s important,” Brian
grabbed Kevin by the arm.
Bron was grinning from ear to ear
at him. Kevin sighed loudly, all hope was lost for
this night. He really didn’t have to the heart to
ruin the date now anyway. It was romantic and it
was great. “One second please,” he mumbled as he
shook Brian off his arm.
Kevin leaned over, kissed her cheek,
and whispered in her ear, “Thanks for a wonderful
date. I’d like to go out again sometime. I love
Bron walked through the door and
quietly shut it. She had left him standing there.
She leaned back against the door and groaned loudly.
Jake watched her and smiled as he
got up headed for bed, “Nice date?”
“Incredible,” Bron beamed at him
“Night Bron,” Jake said as he closed
the door. He was so pleased that she was that happy.
She would be having sweet dreams tonight.
“Night Jake,” she sighed loudly but
Kevin was awaken the next morning
early, too early. They had a busy day and a long
ride to the venue again for promo work. He stopped
at Carlos’s door on the way out to see Bron. He opened
the door to find Jake eating breakfast and Bron still
sleeping. He smiled at her sleeping form and waved
to Jake as he quietly shut the door.
Bron stirred shortly after that.
She showered and went to find Bounce. Bounce was
off with Stevie so she went to get some work done
on the house. She needed to get as much done as she
could. The work didn’t need to progress so quickly
but after last night she was a bundle of nerves and
needed to occupy herself. She didn’t have that many
The day flew by and it was time to
get dressed for the show. She wanted to go tonight
and see how things were going. The performance was
great as usual and the family and guests were waiting
in the green room for the boys to finish changing.
As the boys drifted in Bron noticed they were dressed
to the nines, clubbing clothes on each one of them.
The excitement has started to build, dancing, we’re
going dancing, she was chanting to herself as she
waited for him.
Bron looked at them, “Are we going
out?” she squeaked. The guys looked at each other
and didn’t answer her. Jerald finally stepped up
to the plate, he rolled his eyes at the fellas, “Really
guys, yes we are but you’re not.”
Bron began to frown slightly it wasn’t
the fact that she wasn’t invited it was the tone that
Jerald used. He sounded just like Kevin, it meant
don’t argue about it. Must be a freakin’ family trait.
Caveman attitude abounds in Kentucky, she grumbled
Bron smiled after catching Mary wink
at A.J.. She replied with the appropriate response
that all Richardson men wanted to hear, compliance,
Mary turned into A.J.’s shoulder
and giggled, while A.J. smirked at her. Jerald contemplated
the reply in his head, well that’s not so bad, what
were they scared of.
Kevin strolled in the door; mister
I always have to look good, took forever to get dressed.
“Hey darlin’, the boys and are going out, okay by
you?” Kevin gave her big grin, he must have heard
the exchange between the two.
“Yep,” Bron smiled, reached up, and
gave him a kiss on the cheek, “Have a good time.”
Bron grabbed Bounce’s hand, “Come
on ladies. Let’s go.” Jake began to follow behind
her with Stevie. Bron turned around and smiled sweetly,
“You boys don’t want to go to the bachelor party.
I’m sure they have big plans knowing these guys.”
Kevin laughed first and the loudest.
She only ignored things when it was convenient for
her. “We can’t Bron,” Jake answered.
Bron looked at Kevin, dropped Bounce’s
hand and waltzed over to him, “Sure you can guys,
right Lurch.” Kevin watched her and knew she was
going to spit something out to make him look foolish
if he said no. She crooked her finger at him and
he bent down. The crowd in the room watched as Kevin’s
eyes rolled around his head as she whispered in his
ear. He closed his eyes and unconsciously licked
his lips. Bron backed her head up and smiled, waiting
for his response. “Get your coats guys you’re going
with us.” Kevin announced after taking a deep cleansing
“Bye guys, have fun,” Bron giggled
as she reached her hand out for Bounce and headed
for the door. She heard the word whipped more than
once on her way out the door and laughed.
Bron, Mary, Anne, and Bounce caught
a ride back to the hotel. It was an hour and half
ride and Bounce was out cold. Bron looked at her
and mentally began busting on herself that it was
too late and happening to often lately.
She felt a hand on hers and heard,
“Not much longer. Pretty soon you’ll be settled in
the new house with a normal routine again.” It was
Anne who had reassured her.
“I know but it’s wearing on her,
this lifestyle is not kid friendly,” Bron spoke to
her still watching her child.
They began to talk about the wedding
on the way back. When Bron asked a question she got
sketchy details. I guess it’s my own fault. I didn’t
want to deal with it so now they will be evasive.
