CHAPTER 3

Houston

August 13th

We stand side by side in total silence as the elevator ascends. The fingers on my right hand tingle, as if my skin can sense she's near. Then I realize it's probably because I'm holding my breath. Slowly, I breathe in, catching a strong whiff of vanilla that sends my heart racing. I clench my fist to keep from reaching out to touch her.

She glances down at my hand as she sees the slight movement from the corner of her eye. I relax my hand again so she doesn't think being this close to her is making me tense, but I don't believe for a second I can fool her.

She steps forward, closer to the elevator doors, putting more distance between us. A soft buzzing noise breaks through the silence just as the elevator doors slide open. She holds the phone to her ear as we exit onto the eighth floor.

"What's wrong?" she says, her eyebrows furrowed with worry, then her lips curl into an absolutely beautiful smile. "Oh, thank God... Yes, we just got here. I'll be right in." Holding the phone to her chest, she lets out a sigh of relief. "He's awake."

"That's great news."

She stops in front of apartment 811 and looks up at me. "I guess you can go."

"You're not still taking him to the vet?"

"Well, it's not an emergency anymore. I'll just have my mom take him in my car. She can walk him down now that he's awake."

My heart clenches as I realize I'm no longer needed. "Of course. So, you're okay?"

What a stupid loaded question.

She shrugs as she reaches for the doorknob. "As good as I can be," she replies, then suddenly she wraps her arms around my waist. "Thanks for the ride."

The smell of her hair hits me like a knife in the chest and I hold my breath to keep myself from completely inhaling her. I pat her on the back and she chuckles as she lets me go.

"Good luck with your pitch," she says, never looking back as she disappears into the apartment.

Jesus fucking Christ. I'm in deep shit here. I can't go back to the store for that meeting. There's no way I'll be able to work with Rory on a regular basis. If we open that wine bar, I'll have to check in at least once a week, probably more like two to three times a week.

I won't survive seeing her that often. I've barely survived the past five years.

But I can't throw away a multimillion-dollar joint venture contract. There's too much competition in the craft beer market these days. I need to take whatever bones are thrown my way.

I just wish I knew if Rory were truly okay. I can put myself through the agony of seeing her on a regular basis if I know it won't affect her. The last thing I want to do is make her work situation unbearable. She doesn't deserve that after what I did to her.

THE MAN I AM
Copyright © Chelsea Camaron 2015

~ Rex ~

As the wind whips around me, she dances violently, slapping the leather of my cut harshly against my T-shirt covered chest. A storm is brewing in the air around me as another one rages on inside my darkened soul.

The road before me is curvy. They call it Dead Man's Trail. Riding a ledge is what it feels like. With the fine line of one wrong move, life and death are in the balance as the road winds through a mountain.

I am hours from home, and I still can't bring myself to turn around and go back. I am not on a transport or on a run for the club. I am out alone, just me, my Harley, and the open night sky.

Not a star shines tonight as the humidity rises and the wind swirls through the thick air. A summer storm is in the midst. My mind races as the pipes on my bike scream out under the pressure of my speed.

"Be a man to be proud of. Carry your name — our name — with pride," Pop's voice echoes in my head.

A name. My name. Our name. Tessie gave my boy — her son, my son, our son — my name. My fucking name.

Axel Devon Crews. Mini-me. One look and I fucking knew he was mine. My gut twists. Mine. My blood. My responsibility. My name. My fucking mirror image.

Throttle down, I push on faster, harder, needing to feel something slice through me besides the disappointments running through my mind. My life is officially at a crossroads, every mistake of my past now shoved in the forefront of my mind.

How did I get so lost? How have I become so consumed in things that don't matter? When did I become so self-absorbed?

I would lay down my life to protect the very cut moving across my back right now. Yet, the woman who freely lay beneath me, giving her body, heart, and soul to me, I left without a glance back. She ripped her body — literally — to give life to my seed, and I did nothing more than wink, smile, and move on to the next woman. I was so focused on myself I missed the signs. I should have known. Hell, I should have been there.

Then, when the opportunity came for me to step up for her, did I do it? No. Shooter stepped in like I knew he would. He is a far better man than I am. Tessie deserves a man like him, not the mess that is me. No matter what life throws at them, he will be there to have her back, to be her security. He will be her strength and her calm within the storm. He will be her best friend and her lover. Everything that Tessie needs, wants, and damn sure deserves is found in the man I now proudly call my brother.

Sure, there was a time I wanted to rip him limb from limb. He went after what could have been mine. No, he didn't go after her, not really, not if I keep it real with myself. I pushed him there. I sent him to her. I gave him what could have been my future. The only person to blame here is me. She needed me, and I tossed her off to him. My mistakes. My losses. I know, if I am ever given a chance to have something good again, I am not going to waste my opportunity.

When the clouds open up, the hot rain comes down, pelting me in the face, on my arms, and all my exposed skin. The road beneath me gets slick as I push on. Soft gravel gives way, and my back tire shifts under me. I don't correct the movement. The delicate balance keeping me upright drops as does my bike, and my body hits the pavement hard. Gravel digs in even through the denim of my pants as the material rips. I feel my arms shred as my bike is no longer under my now broken body, only the unforgiving road. Broken, shredded, a bloody mess of a man — that is what I am.

Pops' voice is the last thing to sound through my head as I succumb to the blackness consuming me.

"The past is the past; the future is before you. Change is a power we all hold. Learning from your mistakes is growth, and it's a necessary change. How you pick yourself up when you hit rock bottom will tell what kind of man you really are."

She hates being serious and is still a big kid at heart. She is a small town country girl enjoying life and, Chelsea hopes that her readers remember not to take life too seriously and to embrace your inner five year old, because five year olds know how to enjoy the simple things in life and how to always have fun.

Unsportsmanlike Conduct
Renegades #2
by
Melody Heck Gatto





*** Synopsis ***


Patrick was an infamous playboy known for his love of women and of course, puck bunnies. He never wanted to be a one woman kind of guy...

Since the day he laid eyes on his cousin's sister-in-law he's been in knots. Actually, the first thing he laid eyes on was her ass, and a mighty fine ass it was. The way she paraded herself around, strutting and swaying her rocking body made his mouth water. The things he would give up to have that body against his.

Gia's first impression of Patrick was pure disgust; the way he ogled her was just gross. With blatant staring and drooling he made no attempt to hide his attraction to her. The cocky smile that spread across his face made her want to puke. Sure, sauntering around her sister's yard in a teeny tiny bikini didn't help the situation. The fact that she liked the attention was wrong since she was with Tyler. Patrick was dangerously hot and there was a naughty excitement that filled her, but flirting was as far as it would go.

Until that night.

One night of weakness.

One night of pure lust.

Gia quickly learned it was impossible to make her feelings vanish, seeing Patrick brought all those raw desires back. She was determined to fight them, her relationship with Tyler meant too much. That cocky smile that infuriated her also turned her on. Coming face to face with him, her body took over and she gave in to her primal desires.

When Gia's life takes an unexpected turn, all true colors are revealed.

In the midst of her life falling apart, her true love may have been in front of her the whole time.

*** About the Author ***


I am a Mom, a Wife and a dog lover.

I've loved reading and writing since I was small. In school I never met a creative writing assignment that I didn't love. I am lucky enough to have a wonderful husband who encourages me to write. When I was laid off from my job of 14 years, he was supportive about letting me stay home and take care of our son. During that time I discovered hockey-romances and found a renewed love of reading as well as a passion for writing.

I am an avid hockey fan. I love my Pittsburgh Penguins! When I'm not watching hockey games I'm probably reading, or writing. :)
