***Picks up when you and Hap have made it back to the clubhouse 💕 This one is pretty short. I hit major writers block half way through and I’d rather have this part be shorter than do it as long as a regularly do and give you guys work that I don’t like ***
You smiled and took the beer from his hand.
He said nothing and nodded, taking a seat beside you on the couch. After a couple seconds of silence Happy finally spoke.
"You’ll stay here until we handle everything.”
You nodded your head before narrowing your eyes in confusion.
"Handle what? Alex already gave Dylan the money. He paid them. It’s done.”
Happy chuckled softly and shook his head but you could tell it wasn’t in humor.
"It won’t be ‘done’ until those assholes are in the ground. They know where you work, where you live. Anything else happens with that shit head ex of yours and they can come after you again. I ain’t letting that happen.“
You swallowed but nodded. He wasn’t lying. They did still pose a threat to you. While you didn’t want to be the one responsible for any extra problems for the club, you knew that Happy wasn’t going to let this one slide. He stayed looking at you with those eyes of stone before getting up and making his way over to Tig, no doubt to set a plan in motion.
The sun had already began to set and neither Tig nor Happy were back. They’d both told you to stay out at the clubhouse until they figured something out. You were still there at the clubhouse though waiting for them to return and had taken up conversation with one of the new prospects in the meantime. Just acting up on how things had been going around here in your absence. The stress of dealing with Dylan’s issues had taken up most of your time and you found yourself spending less and less time with your brother and the club. Now that you were free of that hold, you vowed that you would spend more time with the family you’d learned to love over the past few years.
You were in the middle of talking about the upcoming fundraiser that Gemma and Luanne were setting up when you felt a strong hand place itself on your lower back. When you turned, you found Happy standing behind you, his eyes trained on the prospect.
"Thanks for watching after her Rat. I got it from here."
The prospect nodded and stuck his hands in his pockets.
"No problem Hap."
Ratboy said nothing else and simply stood from his stool, walking away from the bar.
"Nice meeting you Rat.”
He turned back around and nodded, a small smile showing for a second.
“Yeah. Nice meeting you too."
Happy on the other hand stood there stone faced. He could see the way Rat was looking at you and he didn’t like it. He could see the interest in his eyes and that he was enjoying the conversation with you. As much as he wanted you to make friends and get involved with the club again, he didn’t want any of the guys getting too close to you, especially not one of the prospects.
He locked eyes with you and you gave him a small smile before you let out a yawn.
"Yeah. I think I’m gonna go take a nap.”
"You can use my room if you want. I don’t think Tigs cleaned up in a while. You know how he can be.“
With a shudder, you agreed.
"You’re right. I’ll crash in your dorm until he gets the room ready.”
Hap nodded and you leaned up to kiss his cheek gently.
"Thank you Happy.“
He stayed quiet and watched you as you walked away, your hips unknowingly enticing him as they swayed. The hand on his shoulder snapped him out of it.
"Where’s she headed?"
Hap looked over at Kozik and tried to make it seem as if he was uninterested. He didn’t need to be raising any suspicions.
"She’s tired, wanted to take a nap."
"Good. She could use some rest."
Kozik left it at that and hopped up onto one of the bar stools, pouring himself and Happy a shot.
"Tig said you guys are trying to figure out who went after her. Did you find them yet?"
Happy shook his head and knocked back the shot, grabbing the bottle and pouring himself another one.
"Not yet. But I will.”
