“Do we really have to leave?” Ashlyn asked as she ran her hands through her blonde, wavy hair. I was leant against the communal bathroom door watching her as she got ready for the party. She was wearing a white summer dress that hit her knees, strappy sandals and a white short cardigan that covered up her scars on the top of her back. Those ones weren’t very noticeable, you wouldn’t see them unless you knew about them.
“Yes, Prez’s orders,” she looked down at her hands. “What is it?” I stalked into the room until I was pressed against her back and looking at her through the bathroom mirror.
“We’ve been safe here, no drama and no danger. I just feel like that’s going to change once we leave.” Her eyes connected with mine and I saw unshed tears forming.
“I’m not going to lie to you, it might. But we’ve out stayed our welcome.” She took a deep breath and plastered on a fake smile.
I was now pacing the bar area, worrying my bottom lip between my teeth and clenching and unclenching my hands. That woman Belinda said a gift would arrive in two hours and it was now almost eleven in the morning. I had a bad feeling and didn’t know what I should do.
My head snapped up when the Prez left his office and headed for the main doors, Rooster, Wiz, Henry and Drake all followed him and it took me a moment to get my feet moving again, I hurried after them only to be stopped by Denise.
“No, you can’t go out there.” I was stunned by what she was telling me and it took a moment to register.
“I need to see what it is.” I went to step past her and she blocked my path. “Denise.”
“I’m sorry, no.” I went to dodge her again when large hands clapped around my waist and lifted me off my feet. I looked over my shoulder to see that Drum had picked me up and was carrying me into the bar. He placed me on the sofa and Denise sat beside me.
“Please just wait for Drake to come back in, ok?” I nodded, not taking my eyes off the door.
“It’s another woman, isn’t it?” I asked, taking my eyes off the door to look at Denise and the answer was clear as day on her face. Her face full of make-up couldn’t hide it from me.
Kacey Hamford is a pen name for me (Kelly). I am in my thirties and started this journey in 2014, I love to read romance books about rockstars, so thought I would have a go at writing one myself. I really enjoyed it and got a boost of confidence once my books started selling.
I have gone on to write a young adult series, set in a college. The series is still on going.
I also have an MC series, it was something different for me to write and I enjoyed it so much, especially when I got readers telling me they would love to read books about the sub characters.
I work full time as a dog groomer, I love to read and my friends and family are very important to me. They are all so supportive of my writing career and encourage me to carry on.
