Wednesday comes once a week, every week. That means it’s once again time for #1lineWed. Today’s theme is **KEY**. Since I’m totally rewriting the first three chapters of the next Red Dirt book, I’m getting down and dirty with today’s blog rather than getting all punny with my intro. Here’s the set-up: This is Wizard’s POV right after seeing–and saving–Jen, which occurs in Chapter 1. I hope you enjoy the snippet. 🙂
“Babe, get on the bike.”
I growled and she didn’t even blink. “Not tellin’ you again, babe. Get. On. The. Bike.”
“I can’t leave Rascal.”
Rascal? Who or what the fuck was Rascal? I didn’t notice an animal in her car but then again, I was in kind of a hurry to get inside after I heard the gunfire.
“Who the fuck?”
“Rascal. My car.” Her arm swept out toward the red Beetle. “I can’t leave him.”
“You named your fuckin’ car?” I shook my head. Who the hell names a car? “Dammit, babe. You’re covered in blood.
I’m not sure if some of it isn’t yours. Get on the fuckin’ bike. I’ll get someone to take care of your car.”
“Keys.” She patted her dress, a confused look on her face. I figured shock was about to set in.
“Don’t need ’em.” I didn’t. I’d have Bishop come get it. He didn’t need keys either. Dude was a hellava car thief. “Now get on my fuckin’ bike!”
Yeah, definitely shocky. Her eyes looked a little glazed and her skin had gone pale under all that crazy makeup but she did as ordered. She gathered up the acres of pink swirling around her gorgeous legs and got on the bike. I had my phone out calling in the cavalry as I headed back toward the clubhouse. Didn’t take long for my brothers to respond. Four bikes passed us headed toward the Gas-N-Go. Two more pulled U-eys and formed up on me. Easy was laughin’ his ass off, the sorry sonavabitch. He’d get his. Hollywood was checkin’ out my—the woman. I’d make him eat that leer.
“I’m tellin’ Lainey.” I had to yell it into the wind. His mate was pregnant and hormonal. Siccing her on him was only fair.
Hollywood quit lookin’ but yelled back, “Fuck you, Wizard!”
