Kevin went down to the third suite.
For the one night he had arranged for three connecting
suites, two with double bedrooms. He figured that
Tim and his family would be in one, his mom and Kaylin
in another. Jerald would have the other. He and
Bron would take the third. Kevin’s mother had changed
the plans. Kevin was in the far suite with Jerald.
Tim and his family would share the other. His mom
had the remaining room in the middle. The last suite
was reserved for Bron and Kaylin. He mused in his
head that what his mother had done was actually plant
herself in between the two of them for the last night.
I can’t wait until tomorrow the hell with all of you.
I have the penthouse upstairs for the two of us for
the rest of the time here.
Kevin walked in to see Bron lying
on the bed staring at the ceiling. She knew he was
there without looking at him, “She did this on purpose
“Fraid so,” Kevin answered as he
walked towards the bed and crawled on it, noticing
Bounce had fallen asleep in the other bed. He lay
down next to her and wrapped his arms around her.
Her body trembled in his arms. He knew she was scared.
Bron needed him and he was going to be there for her.
Slowly he felt her breathing steady and slow. She
had drifted off into a deep sleep just with him holding
her. He closed his eyes satisfied for now that she
The connecting door to the suite
opened and his mother stood there. She watched the
two lovers sound asleep on the bed. Kaylin had already
dropped off in the other bed from all the excitement
of the plane ride. She could see her silhouette in
the bed at the far end of the room. This suite didn’t
have separate bedrooms. This was the room that Kevin
had planned on sharing with Bron so it wasn’t necessary.
They all looked at peace and she decided to leave
the sleeping family alone, but she would leave the
door open slightly, just in case.
A light snoring noise woke Bron from
her rest. She hadn’t slept so soundly in a week.
She tried to turn in the bed and was pulled back towards
the noisy object that was holding her. Hmm, she smiled.
She pushed herself back into the object that lay behind
her. The snoring ceased and she pushed her bottom
up tightly into his pelvis. “Unless you plan on doin’
the deed in front of Kaylin, I suggest you stop right
now,” came in a deep voice in her ear.
Bron thought about it and half lifted
herself up to look over at the other bed. She turned
and grinned at Kevin, “She’s a sound sleeper.” Kevin
laughed quietly and pulled her closer for a kiss.
The kiss was the most wonderful thing Bron had felt
since Kevin had snuck in her room that night.
Kevin chuckled slightly in his head,
she was hungry for him just as much as he was hungry
for her. Their hands began to play across each other’s
bodies. Bron was devouring his tongue, so sweet,
so good, he groaned. She started nibbling and kissing
his neck as her hands found their way into his shirt.
Kevin rolled slightly so that he was half on top of
her, his knee automatically parting her legs. He
held her face in his hands as she gently drew circles
around his nipples with her fingers. He lowered his
head to kiss her with all the fire that had been licking
at him for the last few days. Bron could feel his
hardness in his jeans. She lowered her hands to help
relieve him from the strain of the fabric.
A cough was heard from the door that
connected the suites and Bron closed her eyes. “Ignore
them, they’ll go away if they’re smart,” she said
as she raised her hands to his shoulders out in open
“We can’t, it’s my mom,” he said
slightly raising his lips off hers. He watched her
eyes go big, “You’re kidding right.”
“Are you two done with your rest?”
Anne spoke from the door.
“I guess we are now,” Bron hissed
out as a reply.
“Sorry darlin’,” he smiled.
Kevin rolled off of her and sat up
on the edge of the bed. He was looking at a wide-awake
six year old, staring back at him. Damn he said within,
I’m so glad we were interrupted. Bounce smiled at
him, she has her mom’s smile he noted to himself.
“Sleep good Kaylin?” he asked. Bron was snickering
behind him. Kaylin returned an elfish grin to him.
Bron got up and began hunting the
suite for some coffee. She was getting a caffeine
headache. Kevin grinned at her frustration at not
finding her coffee or the pot to make it in. Finally,
he relented, “It’s in ma’s room,” he told her. Whosh,
she was gone.
Kevin sat for a second. This is
the perfect opportunity to remove the obstacle of
going to L.A. Bron had promised Kaylin that they
would be going back to Lexington together. He was
damn mad when he found out about it too. They discussed
it at dinner and he told her she was staying with
him. She thought she had won this battle just by
making a promise to Kaylin. Kevin refused to let
Bron use Kaylin as a leverage point every time it
was convenient. He was not going to let Bron stick
her between them when she wasn’t getting her own way.
He had conjured up his own little plan that would
be worth the wait to any six year old. But he needed
to make sure that Kaylin understood it wouldn’t happen
if she gave anyone hard time about it or if Bron found
out about it. “So Kaylin, since your mom needs her
boost, let’s talk. I wanted to know, have you ever
been to Disney World?”
Bounce sat straight up in bed, “NO!”
she spoke with excitement. Kevin got up and shut
the door to the suite. “I was thinking. I kinda
wanted your mom and I to spend some time together
and not go right home to Lexington.” He watched the
frown begin to form on the little one’s face. This
is not going to be easy, he sighed. “I know she promised
you that she would go back to Lexington with you,
but I have an idea. If you let mom come with me just
for another week, over Easter we will go to Disney
World for a couple of days.”
Kevin sat on the bed and watched
the frown turn upside down to a wide smile, “Really,
you’d take me?” Kevin smiled, “Sure will but only
on one condition. You go home with my mom the day
after tomorrow with no fussin’ and you have to keep
it a secret.” He watched the frown come back to her
“I’m not allowed to keep secrets
from mom,” Kaylin looked at him upset. She really
wanted to go and he knew it but her upbringing was
in the way. “Well it’s not really a secret, it’s
more of a surprise that she can’t know about it.”
Kevin shook his head, nothing like lying to kid you
moron, he chastised himself. Nope not going to negotiate
with a six year old but I’m not above a little bribery
for a honeymoon.
“I don’t want mom to get mad at me,”
Kaylin said with uneasiness.
“That’s easy, I won’t let her,” Kevin
grinned. Yep almost there, come on sweetheart make
Kev a happy man.
Bounce jumped off the bed and up
to him. She gave him a big hug, “I promise I won’t
tell if you won’t let her get mad. Mom mad is not
Kevin laughed, “Oh I know all about
that and it isn’t pretty.”
Bron called to both of them to come
in the main suite. Kevin looked at Bounce, “Cross
your heart,” he spoke as he crossed his heart with
his index finger. “Cross your heart,” Bounce said
to him and did the same.
Both of them got up and went to the
suite. “Wassup?” he asked as he entered the room.
“I not sure yet,” Bron replied looking
at his family. Kevin grinned when he surveyed his
three family members.
“Bron has some things to do for tomorrow
and you need to leave for a bit,” Anne told him.
Kevin stood there and rocked back
on his heals. “Okay, me and my sweetheart will go
to dinner,” he said as he looked down at Bounce who
hadn’t left his side.
Anne looked at him, “Sounds good,
why don’t you take your brothers with you, all of
Kevin grinned, “The want to get rid
of us Kaylin.”
“Come on Bounce, I’ll get you ready
for dinner. At least if you’re going, they won’t
be drinking,” Bron chuckled as she led her to the
Bron had no sooner left than Gillian
and Leigh appeared at the door. “You could at least
wait until I’m ready to leave,” Kevin grumbled as
he headed for a shower.
Within a half hour everyone was gone
from the floor. “Okay what’s the deal?” Bron groaned.
Mary smiled as she walked in with Margie, who took
care of the boy’s costumes, “You need to try this
on. If it needs alterations, Margie said she would
do it for you.”
Bron’s face went white as the thought
hit her that she was actually supposed to get married
tomorrow. “Oh,” she said quietly. Bron silently
went to change in the other suite. She was in awe
of the gift and didn’t know what to say. All the
doubts and fear came back and she began to cry as
she stood in front of the mirror.
“You look beautiful,” came from behind
her. Mary was standing there.
“I’m scared Mare,” Bron spoke through
“Of course you are, you don’t get
married everyday,” Mary answered her.
“That’s not what I mean and you know
it. They will rip me to shreds,” Bron answered.
The room was strangely quite and
she heard Anne’s voice, “My son will not let that
Bron dropped her shoulders as the
rest of the women came in the room. The ensemble
was perfect and nothing needed to be altered. Bron
went in and changed. Margie grabbed the items from
her and gently patted her shoulder, “I’m going to
get these pressed for you.”
“Margie you’ll be there tomorrow
right?” Bron asked.
“I wouldn’t miss it hun,” she replied.
Once Margie was gone the details
came flying out of everyone all at once. Bron felt
out of control and dizzy, it was information overload.
“Stop please one at a time,” she cried out to them.
They all stopped speaking and Anne guided Bron by
elbow back to the suite.
“Will do this one at a time, but
we’re going to leave some surprises for tomorrow.”
Anne smiled. The details and checklist were gone
over one by one and Bron was relieved. Her friends
and his family had done more than a wonderful job.
Nothing had been left out and she was amazed that
they had stuck with what both her and Kevin wanted.
The only thing that shook her was the amount of people
that were going to be there. They both wanted small
and intimate. Mary explained that it was a little
difficult to pull off a wedding on a tour. If people
were left out, jaws would flap.
“I don’t know how to thank all of
you, but I do have something for each one of you.”
Bron got up and left. She came back to the room with
boxes of things. She handed a gift to each one of
them. Each one of them had received not a fancy gift
but a gift from the heart. Anne was overwhelmed at
a poem in a silver plated frame. It was Bron’s way
of saying thank you to her for caring for Bounce and
her support. Mary was delighted with her angel; she
had hunted for it for weeks. “Bounce picked that
one out, we were lucky.” Gillian received a silver
charm bracelet. On the bracelet were a music note
and a silver H and D. “He can finish it,” Bron smiled.
Leigh was the tough one. But Bron gave her a book
entitled ‘Girlfriends,’ and a leather bound journal.
“Try writing, it relieves stress,” she grinned.
The ladies ordered room service and
ate in peace. As they finished they were rejoined
by a loud and rowdy bunch of men who seemed very animated.
Bron walked up to Kevin and sniffed. “I wasn’t drinking,”
he laughed at her. “Getting married is better than
Somebody knocked on the door and
Tim went to answer it. He was expecting it was his
wife, Tracy, and his children who were joining him.
Introductions were made and Kevin watched Bron withdraw
into herself again faced with complete strangers that
in one day would be family.
Mc watched from across the room.
He called Kevin, “I want to talk to her alone,” he
somewhat asked but let it be known that no wouldn’t
be a choice.
Kevin shook his head, “No, you’re
not going to upset her tonight.”
“I’m not going to. You said that
I needed to explain things to her. I think your right
and now is the time,” Mc answered as he watched Bron
begin to pace to ease her nerves.
“Are you insane? You pick the night
before we are to get married to explain why you spent
three years knocking the hell out of her. What’s
up with you? Too close to her anniversary trip to
ICU for you,” Kevin snarled to him.
“Look I know what Andy brought you
and that is the past, leave it there. She doubts
herself enough right now. If you want her to be able
to get through tomorrow then I suggest that you let
me talk to her tonight.” Mc stood stead fast and
Kevin dropped his head in defeat.
Mc was right, Bron paced any quicker through the suite
they would be replacing the carpet by tomorrow. Mc
knew that it was okay.
“Spark, I need to see you,” Mc spoke
as he walked into her room. Bron followed without
question, somewhat relieved to have a temporary escape.
The Backstreet Boys all looked at Kevin as the door
shut. They were questioning what was going on, as
well as the fact that Kevin had let the two of them
go off alone.
Andy, Jake, and Stevie stood off
to the side and all of them nodded their approval
to him. Kevin was relieved that he had made the right
The room was restrained for a bit.
It was Kaylin who broke the tension, by beginning
to talk about tomorrow. She was very excited and
happy. Kevin grinned as he watched her erase the
tension from the room. She was explaining to Tracy
and the kids and enjoying herself. They hadn’t seen
each other in a week and had grown fast friends when
introduced to each other in Lexington.
Others began to talk about tomorrow.
Kevin chuckled at the argument stirring in the corner.
The question was who was going to walk Bron down the
aisle. Kevin grinned as he went to join the conversation.
Each had their reasons for wanting to do it. Andy
insisted that it was his mom; Jake said they were
best friends. Stevie remained quiet bowing out of
“Kev you decide,” Jake looked at
“Oh no, not me,” Kevin snickered.
“Why don’t you just let Kaylin do it?” He spoke.
Kevin had already chosen Mc to do it. As weird as
it sounded it felt right to him. It wouldn’t be the
first time he had given Bron to him. He still hadn’t
been able to broach the subject with Bron so he definitely
was not going to talk about it with them.
Kevin pensively watched the door
for over two hours. They were no outbursts, no crying,
nothing from the other suite. His nerves were racked
and the strain was evident on his face to the people
in the room. He was about to knock on the door when
Mc came out. It was obvious that he had actually
been crying and Kevin was taken aback. He wanted
to know what happened in that room. “Bounce, time
for bed,” Mc spoke to her.
Bounce protested she wasn’t ready.
Kevin looked at her, “Bed now. Tomorrow is going
to be a long day.” The complaining stopped immediately
as she said goodnight and began to shuffle to the
Andy snickered, “Night brat.” Bounce
turned to look at Andy, she was mad. Kevin grinned
as he watched Bron’s genes come out in her kid. Her
eyes were flashing away at Andy. “Kaylin,” Kevin
spoke loudly. Bounce turned in a huff and headed
for her mom’s room. She turned when she heard Andy
laughing again. Kevin saw her go for the door and
knew she was going to slam it shut. Kevin took a
step forward and she quietly shut the door.
Andy laughed loudly, “Brat baby doesn’t
have your number yet.” Kevin grinned, “No, and she
won’t. She won’t be working me over like she does
the rest of you. She is just like her mother.” The
family members waited for Bron to come out and she
never did. People drifted out of the suite and to
their own rooms. Mc had left discreetly without saying
a word to anyone.
Kevin looked around and even Jake
was absent. That was very unusual, Jake was always
there. Kevin wasn’t going to upset her anymore; she
needed some space, heading to bed himself. They had
errands to run in the morning including going to the
county clerk to get their marriage license. The logistics
had been worked out and a little plan in case the
press had gotten wind of it.
