*** I plan to do a lot with this one 😏😏 First part***
“So it just stopped working?” “Yeah. I woke up last night and I was sweating so went and checked the thermostat and it was at 80.” Opie winced and shook his head, messing with the pipe again. “You’re staying at the clubhouse tonight. I don’t want you staying here when it’s this hot.” “I could just use the portable fan.” “You’re going to the clubhouse.” You relented and nodded with a laugh. “Fine. Let me go pack.” Opie nodded and followed you back into the house, sitting on your bed while you began to stick clothes in a bag.
“We’re having a party tonight, nothing too big but it’ll be fun. Haven’t hung out with you in a while.” “No we haven’t. Feels like it’s been forever. Just SAMCRO?” “Just SAMCRO.” Opie looked over at you to ask him if you wanted to go on a ride with him later tonight but happened to look right as you were pulling a pink pair of panties from the drawer you had open. He looked away quickly, half out of privacy and half out of not wanting to get his mind thinking about you wearing them. He liked you, a lot. At times he thought he might love you. You’d been in Charming for almost a year now and he’d felt something for you from the first conversation he’d had with you which had only gotten stronger.
You were sweet, you were smart, you were loyal and you were beautiful. He’d known that last one since the beginning but everyday it came through a little more than the last. Problem was, he wasn’t the only one that had it for you. Jax was right along side him, though the two never spoke about it out loud. You’d known Jax longer and his confident, sometimes cocky attitude had gotten him closer to you than Opie had. Your relationship with Opie was sometimes more serious though. You told him more, told him secrets. Jax and you were more playful and teasing but you still trusted them both equally. They both had a lot in common but their attraction to you was one you didn’t know about.
Coming out of the bathroom with your lotion and perfume, you finished packing your bag, and turned around to Opie smiling. “Ok. Ready.” He returned the smile and stood, holding his hand out for you to give him your bag. “I can carry it.” “I know you can.” Taking the bag from you anyway, he motioned to the door. “Ladies first.”
“Hey darlin’.” You turned your head as you felt a hand on your back and heard Jax’s voice. He came around you and sat on the bar stool to your right. “Hey troublemaker.” He smirked and reached for your beer, taking a swig. “You’re here early. Wanted to get a head start for the party?” You shook your head and took your beer back from his hand. “Not exactly. My air stopped working so Opie told me to stay here.” Jax’s smirk disappeared and he nodded.
“Yeah. No sense in you staying over there melting when we got room here.” You nodded and Jax stared down at the bar top. “Whose dorm are you staying in?” You shrugged. “I don’t know. I just figured I’d stay in Opie’s.” “No you can stay with me.” You looked up at his sharper tone and he smiled quickly before he snatched your beer back out of your hand, chugging the rest of it. “Well since we’ve got like 3 hours till the party, how about we go for a ride real quick. I’ll bring you back so you have time to get ready.” You nodded excitedly. You’d never even seen a motorcycle up close until you’d become friends with them and you’d quickly learned that riding through the warm California sun was one of your favorite things and both men had quickly picked up on that.
You both stood from the bar and walked outside towards Jax’s bike just as you were securing your helmet, Opie pulled up and he wasn’t happy to see you pressed against Jax’s back, or in his bike. “Where you going?” Jax answered before you had the chance. “I’m taking her for a ride before the party. It’s nice out.” You smiled and nodded at Opie, totally missing the silent conversation that was had between the Sons. Opie nodded, his face tight. “Have fun.” He pulled off his own helmet and stalked towards the clubhouse, you looking at Jax with a small frown. “Is he ok?” “He’s fine. You ready?” You nodded and wrapped your arms around his waist. Jax nodded and smirked to himself. You’d be his.
