Chapter 16 – Here’s To Us

Chapter 16 – Here’s To Us 

I do not own SOA, YouTube, Halestorm, Papa Roach, Five Finger Death Punch, or Kodaline. I claim all original characters.

A few days later…

Chibs cocked a brow as Aislinn crawled into his bed. She laid her head down on his chest and curled him beside him.

“Ye alright pet?” He questioned as she seemed a little down.

“Aye…” She softly put, and the Scot kissed her forehead.

“What is it?” He uttered while running a soothing hand along her back.

“I’m just worried about Abel and Riona.” She said, and Chibs nodded in perfect understanding.

He too was concerned on how they’d take the departure. This was sure to make or break Riona and Jax. Chibs himself had been praying for Jax to keep his promise and not give into his old ways, once he got to Charming. Riona not being there would be a true test. The Scot wouldn’t be there to steer him straight either. But Chibs knew he had to put some faith in the kid and believe that he was a man of his word. If Jax said he was done with that way of life, then he was done, at least the Scot hoped he was. Jax had changed quite a bit within the last few years, Chibs himself had seen this. He didn’t want to see the downfall if Jax proved otherwise. It’d kill Jax and Riona if Jax went back on his word. Chibs recoiled knowing he’d have to hogtie Aislinn and send Jax somewhere far away. But another thought hit and Chibs let out a hesitant sigh; only he hadn’t realized he’d done this out loud.



“Did I say somethin’ wrong?”

“Nah.” He said, but the thought had crossed his mind.

If Riona and Jax went up in flames, he and Aislinn were sure to. The mere idea made the Scot want to threaten Jax with every inch of his life. He loved the kid, but he’d never forgive him if Jax went and fucked up his relationship, in the process of fucking up his own. That was a strange feeling for Chibs, but it was there all the same. He’d become very protective of Aislinn, and he couldn’t bear the idea of losing her.

Aislinn lifted her head, and Chibs caressed her cheek.

“Just concerned myself that’s all.”

The young woman nodded then laid her head back down.

“All we can do is wait it out and see what happens. We’ll be there to support them no matter, them, and Jackie.”

Aislinn ran her fingers along his VP patch.

“I want to sing.” She randomly put.

“Do ye now?”


“And what is it ye want to sing love?”

“Everythin’. Think we could set somethin’ up in the rec room. It’s gonna be our last night together and…”

Chibs rolled her over and his eyes locked with hers.

“Ye mean a show?”

“Aye. If that’s okay…”

“I think that would be great! Might be the therapy we all need.”

Aislinn smiled, and Chibs pecked her on the lips.

“I’ll let the boys know.”

“Look at ya all excited!”

“I get ta see ye rock out on stage. Ye bet yer arse I am!”

There mere idea had the Scot stiff below the belt. The young woman laughed as he rolled on out of bed and went on to let the others know.

“Did I hear that right?”

Half-Sack questioned as he peered over from his bed.



“How ya feelin’?”

“Like myself again.”

“Not so sure that’s a good thing.” Aislinn teased, and Kip laughed.

“You’re probably right.” He admitted.

“You’re so quiet. I hadn’t a clue ya was even in here.”

“Just needed to shut my eyes for a few. I didn’t realize I slept this long. What time is it?”

“Six-forty-three.” She said while looking to her cellphone.

They spent the entire trip without cellphone service. Jax had made a comment a time or two about his mother and how she was going to freak out when she saw him again. As for Aislinn, her only concern was Brodie and Quinn. Aislinn knew they’d be worried if she and Riona didn’t check in soon. She crawled on out of bed and grabbed her bag. She dug through it and laughed amongst herself. She’d forgotten all about that top. It was too perfect. Aislinn grabbed a pair of black jeans and skipped off.

Riona was helping the boys set up when her sister entered the room. Riona whistled out in a catcall manner, and Aislinn snapped her head in that direction.

“Guess I should start calling you Lzzy instead of Linny!”

Aislinn smiled.

“Ya really think so?!” She said as Lzzy Hale from the band Halestorm was one of her idols.

“Aye,” Riona said with a warm smile.

“Ya can call me Lzzy I don’t mind.” Her sister replied sounding like that of Flower from Bambi.

“Guess I should get ready myself.”

“Aye, and hurry it up.”

Chibs was struck stupid and couldn’t muster a single word at the moment. He was kicked back in one of the chairs and talking to Bobby when Aislinn entered the room. Bobby had the same reaction, but Chibs’s had the man dying of laughter.

Aislinn grabbed a couple of beers then made her way over.

“Ya alright there Scotty?”

The man gave a simple nod but didn’t as much as blink.

“Ya sure?” She questioned as she handed one of the beers over.

Chibs didn’t comment as he ran a hand along her exposed tummy. She had on a midriff Metallica top and black jeans that looked as if they were painted on. Her hair was wild and falling along her shoulders. The Scot closed his eyes for a moment as it was almost too much to bear. He didn’t think it possible. She was drop dead gorgeous as it was but at this very moment, she appeared as though an image from a teenage boy’s wet dream.

“I think you broke him darlin’,” Bobby said behind a chuckle, and Aislinn blushed in response.

“You’re stunning as always,” Bobby said and raised his beer to her.

“Thank you, Elvis.”

Aislinn let out a bit of a gasp however as Chibs pulled her into his lap, unexpectedly. She was taken back by his obsessive kiss. The Scot let out a bit of a growl once he pulled away. He wanted to fuck her so badly it was unreal.

“Easy Scotty…” She whispered as she could feel his excitement.

Chibs drew her in close then leaned into her ear.

“Ye’ve no idea what yer doin’ ta me, pet. I’ve never wanted anyone as bad as I want you.”

Aislinn felt her entire body heat over, and she felt a little dizzy. She hadn’t expected that at all. The man had her all kinds of tingly, and the young woman herself had to keep from downright humping him. His pulsating erection wasn’t helping matters.

“Good.” She cruelly teased then crawled on out of his lap.

“Ho-ly shit,” Bobby said as she had that strut going when she walked away.

“You are fucked!” He added with a chuckle but with unreserved envy.

“Severely,” Chibs uttered as he couldn’t take his eyes off her.

Aislinn was testing out the amps and guitars when Bobby made his way over.

“No fiddle tonight?”

“Thought you wanted that first go in private…” She reminded.

Bobby smiled then wiggled his brows.

“Get your mind out of the gutter, Elvis! Ya know damn well what I mean.”

“Sadly. But a man can always dream.”

“I’ll play ya somethin’ when we get back to the states.”

“But we’re playin’ together tonight, right?” Bobby said with hope in his eyes.

Aislinn laughed.

“Ya know it!” Aislinn handed him a list and Bobby reared back.

“Do ya know those?”

“Well yeah… just not my usual forte.”

“Well, I don’t plan on doin’ Elvis numbers all night…”

“Maybe you should.”

Aislinn snorted in thought.

“Not this girl. Sorry love.”

Bobby sighed.

“Guess I better do some homework.”

“I thought you knew the songs!”

“I do, but it’s been a while…” Bobby grumbled under his breath as he headed into another room with one of his guitars.

Aislinn giggled amongst herself and went back to tuning the guitar she’d be using tonight. She tested out a few notes, and a few of the guys hollered out. She lifted her head seeing as how it was Chibs, Jax, and Happy.

“I haven’t even started…”

“Sounded good!” Jax hollered, and Aislinn laughed.

“You’re all crazy.” She murmured then went back to testing everything out.

It took her a few minutes, but she managed to get everything ready to go. Aislinn made her way to the bar and grabbed a couple six packs for the stage. Tig slid a shot over, and she downed it.


He nodded and went on to pour himself one.

Aislinn was headed towards the area they’d set up when Jax howled out. Aislinn spun around wondering what all the fuss was about.

“Well I’ll be damned…” she whispered as Riona had entered the room and she too was all dolled up and ready to go.

Riona also had that rocker vibe only she was wearing a black dress and red lipstick. Like that of Aislinn, her hair was down.

“Lookin’ good sis!” Aislinn called, and Riona smiled.

“Hope so!”

“Aye, don’t go questionin’ somethin’ like that.”

Chibs laughed as Jax had the same expression he did when he first saw Aislinn. Only Jax was a little more animalistic and acted like Wolf from the Tex Avery cartoons. Chibs thought it ironic considering Riona rather resembled the singer Red. The Scot made this comment in passing, and Jax laughed.

The president shot to his feet and made his way over. He took Riona by the hand then spun her around.

“Damn…” He uttered after getting a better look.

“I wanna eat you up.” He muttered with a smirk.

“Aye, but ya said we have to hold off so…” She let go of his hand and went to walk away.

Jax pulled her back towards him then leaned into her ear.

“Don’t need protection for that darlin’…” He hinted while licking his lips and Riona blushed in response.

“I see what ya did there… You’re the worst.” She uttered, and he kissed her.

“I’ll be more than happy to prove you wrong. Just you wait…” He said before smacking her on the ass and sending her about her way.

Riona grabbed one of the headset mics but regarded her sister in question.

“Did Bobby steal these from Brodie?!”

Aislinn raised her brows as the thought never occurred to her. The young woman darted on over and got a good look at the mic and one of the amplifiers.

“Oh shite… I bet he’s pissed!”

Riona shook her head in thought.

“He probably thinks I did it…” Aislinn said with a wide grin.

“You’re just as evil as Bobby!”

“What?! It’s funny, and ya know it. Just imagine the look on Brodie’s face when he headed back for his things.”

“Thank you.” Jax sincerely put as Half-Sack offered to watch Abel so he and the others could enjoy the night.

“We’ll have fun won’t we?” Kip said, and Abel smiled.

“Yeah daddy, we always has fun!” Abel said and took Kip by the hand.

“We’re gonna go play pirates now!” Abel squealed, and Kip chuckled as Abel dragged him out of the rec room.

“That was unexpected…” Chibs uttered as to Half-Sack no longer being a prospect; still, he offered to watch after Abel while Jax enjoyed the show.

“Right?!” Jax replied looking somewhat baffled himself.

The prospects were known for complaining about missing out on events like this. So for Half-Sack to miss this opportunity was a big deal to the Sons. But Kip seemed perfectly content hanging out with Abel instead.

Bobby exited the room he’d been practicing in and gave the girls the go ahead. They nodded in response.

“Ya ready?” Riona asked.

“I’m always ready.”

Galway chapter 15


Riona smiled as she was first to strum her guitar. Aislinn followed her sister’s lead. The guys went nuts once the girls belted out the lyrics to Mayhem by Halestorm. Riona winked her sister’s direction as the sisters knew that’d get them going.

The Scot whistled out when Aislinn hit that metal scream of hers. Riona smiled as her sister had that head banging and was thrumming those notes like a mad woman. Riona’s part returned, and she took over. Aislinn took a sip off one of the beers but glanced towards the doorway. The captain nodded her direction, and she nodded in return. The girls finished out the song. The Sons and Mathias hollered out and was clapping. Riona, however, shared that same apprehensive look as her sister.

“I got it,” Riona said and had her sister take over.

Aislinn downed the rest of her beer but kept a watchful eye on her sister. She wasn’t the only one. Jax’s eyes were glued that direction as well.

The young woman cleared her throat and went on to the next song. The girls were in a Halestorm kind of mood tonight, so Aislinn went with I Am The Fire. Aislinn tilted her head though as her sister escorted the captain towards the bar and had him take a seat.

“Are we expecting others?” Riona hinted as to the crew, and Mathias shook his head no.

“Better not be. This show is for our boys, not yours.” The young woman made clear.

Mathias smiled as Riona headed back to the makeshift stage.

“Damn…” Jax murmured after his old lady said her peace.

“She didn’t hold back on that one.” Happy said with a chuckle.

The Scot, however, was fixated on Aislinn. The lyrics alone were enough to give the man chills, but once again she had that fiery passion and Chibs knew she picked that song for a reason. This had the Scot thinking back to what Riona had said and the song Aislinn had written about him. Every time this girl sang, he fell more and more in love.

Riona was first to clap when the song came to an end. Aislinn did a slight bow before grabbing another beer and making her way off stage. She welcomed herself into Chibs’s lap, and he wrapped his arms around her waist.

“Ye nailed it as usual darlin’.” He lovingly whispered.

“Thank you, Scotty.” She said before sipping on her beer.

Happy reached over and bumped her fist.

“I’m proud of you.” He said, and Aislinn’s heart melted.

“Don’t get me all choked up now!” She scolded, and Happy smiled.

Aislinn craned her neck her sister’s direction however as she played a couple of notes. The young woman reared back when Riona stopped and with this nervous vibe to her.  Riona waved her sister over. Aislinn hopped up and went to see what that was about. Riona leaned into her sister’s ear, and Aislinn smiled.

“Ya got it!”

Riona gave a simple nod as Aislinn skipped off. She took the president by the hand, pulled him to his feet then grabbed the chair he was sitting in. Aislinn followed her sister’s instructions and got Jax situated. Jax had this puzzled look about him, and Aislinn giggled as she jostled his hair about.

“Stop that,” Jax uttered as if dealing with a pesky sister.

“Have fun!” She said then made her way back to Chibs’s lap.

Riona cleared her throat and her eyes locked with Jax.

“I’ve been rackin’ my brain tryin’ to think of the perfect way to put this. I think I’ve finally come up with somethin’. So…” Riona lifted her beer in the air.

“Here’s to us, Jackson.” She said before downing the entire bottle and tossing it aside. Aislinn placed her pinkie fingers into the sides of her mouth and let out an encouraging whistle.

We could just go home right now

Or maybe we could stick around

For just one more drink, oh yeah

Get another bottle out

Lets shoot the shit

Sit back down

For just one more drink, oh yeah

Here’s to us, here’s to love

All the times that we fucked up

Here’s to you, fill the glass

‘Cause the last few days have kicked my ass

So lets give ’em hell

Wish everybody well, here’s to us, here’s to us


Riona made her way over and leaned in as she continued singing. Jax reached out and brushed her hair back with his fingers. The man was mesmerized and couldn’t peel himself away from that beautiful voice or those hypnotic eyes of hers.


Stuck it out this far together

Put our dreams through the shredder

Let’s toast ’cause things got better

And everything could change like that

And all these years go by so fast

But nothing lasts forever


“This will…” Jax genuinely uttered, and Riona smiled as she continued.


Here’s to us, here’s to love

All the times, that we messed up

Here’s to you, fill the glass

‘Cause the last few nights have kicked my ass

If they give ya hell

Tell em to go fuck themselves, here’s to us, here’s to us

Here’s to all that we kissed

And to all that we missed

To the biggest mistakes

That we just wouldn’t trade

To us breaking up


“Didn’t break up!” Jax announced, and Riona had to refrain from laughing in the middle of her song.


Without us breaking down

To whatever’s comin’ our way

Here’s to us, here’s to love

All the times that we fucked up

Here’s to you, fill the glass

‘Cause the last few days have kicked my ass


Jax cocked a brow and gave her ass a good smack. The man couldn’t help himself Riona had him all kinds of riled up.


So lets give ’em hell

Wish everybody well

Here’s to us, here’s to love

All the times, that we messed up

Here’s to you, fill the glass

‘Cause the last few nights have kicked my ass

If they give ya hell

Tell em to go fuck themselves, here’s to us, here’s to us (Go fuck themselves)

Here’s to us, here’s to us

Here’s to us, here’s to us

Here’s to us, here’s to love

Here’s to us, wish everybody well

Here’s to us, here’s to love

Here’s to us, here’s to us


“Would it kill ya to sit there and let me sing to you without interrup…”

Aislinn died of laughter when Jax shot up and kissed Riona.

“Well, that’s one way of shuttin’ her up!” She hollered, and Jax chuckled in the middle of that kiss.

The Sons let out wolf-like howls as Jax set Riona’s guitar down, and lifted her up off the ground. She wrapped her legs around his waist, and that kiss grew a little more heated.

“GET A ROOM!” Aislinn shouted, and Riona flipped her off.

Aislinn giggled, and Chibs gave her a playful pop on the thigh.

“Play nice, or they’ll interrupt us next chance they get.”

“Ya have a point…”

Bobby came to his feet and took Aislinn by the hand.

“I’ll have her home by midnight.” Bobby teased, and Chibs shook his head.

Bobby escorted Aislinn onto the stage. They were setting up when Jax lowered Riona back down. He put his forehead to hers then took her hands into his own.

“There’s one thing I’d like to add to that…” He whispered.

“That bein’?”

“We were never a mistake Riona. It just wasn’t our time… But it is now, and I plan on making the best of it.” He said leaving a stunned Riona behind as he joined the guys back at the table.

Riona joined Aislinn and Bobby onstage.

“Not sure what makes you so fucking special but the girls want you to know this song is for you.”

Bobby pointed Happy’s direction, and the Son gathered this struck stupid appearance. Aislinn giggled at his reaction, and Riona gave the Son a simple nod. The song was Brother by Kodaline.  Bobby was first to begin, and the girls joined in once the chorus hit.

It took a lot to choke Happy up, but that sure did it. Jax was taken back by the man’s reaction to the girls’ dedication. The president reached over and gave the Son a brotherly pat on the back. Happy cleared his throat and was doing his best to play it off. But it was written all over his face. He hadn’t expected that at all.

Happy placed his hand along the area of his heart once the song was over and gave the girls a mere nod. Aislinn sent him a fist bump from across the room and he returned that air bump.

“Alright enough of that gooey bullshit!” Bobby said once they finished and the girls sent him a look of hell.

He raised his hands in the air defensively and Aislinn smacked him in the back of the head.

“Hey!” Bobby barked as Riona made her way off stage.

She joined Jax and the others at the table, and Bobby and Aislinn nodded upon one another.

“You ready darling…” Bobby questioned with a smirk, and Aislinn smiled.

“Oh yeah. Let’s go!’

Bobby sang the lyrics to The House of The Rising Sun by Five Finger Death Punch and Aislinn played guitar.

The guys went wild when Aislinn dropped to her knees at one point and was tearing it up with that guitar. Chibs whistled out and banged his fists on the table as she was in full on metal mode.

“Damn…” Jax murmured looking to be in shock.

“Right?!” Riona said as if full of pride.

“That’s my Linny!”

The song started to slow down, and Aislinn kept strumming as she came to her feet. She and Bobby nodded amongst one another as they were wrapping things up. Bobby let out this animalistic howl afterward, and they hugged one another.

“Now that was fucking awesome!” Bobby said, and Aislinn laughed.

“Oh yeah. Gotta do that again sometime.”

“Fuck yeah!” He said and gave her a high five.

Aislinn was covered in sweat when she made her way off the stage. She headed into the bathroom and got herself cleaned up while Riona and Bobby prepared for the next song.

As for the Sons they were having a field day with this. It’d been a while since they were this entertained. Sure, they didn’t have their usual crow eaters and strippers about, but they were perfectly content with the show the girls were putting on. Each of them wore a smile and were having a genuinely good time, which was precisely what the girls wanted for them. They wanted these boys to head home with clearer heads and to have at least one night where they could forget and let go. The Lawless sisters gave them just that.

When Aislinn exited the bathroom, Riona and Bobby were singing Papa Roach’s No Matter What. Aislinn nodded their direction, and they nodded in return. The young woman made her way to the bar and before she could even get a word out. Happy slid a shot over.

“Thanks.” He himself was choking one back.

Aislinn downed that shot, and Happy went on to pour her a couple more. He folded his arms about his chest and watched as she chugged that last shot.

“Why not bigger?” He randomly put, and Aislinn narrowed her eyes in question.

“You two could be so much more…” He murmured and glanced her sister’s direction as she and Bobby were still playing.

Aislinn shrugged and was looking that direction as well now.

“We’ve talked about it… I guess we’re just not sure where to go from here.”

“If you two became legit US citizens…” Happy uttered and looked to be in thought.

Aislinn craned her head his direction.

“You could get a record deal easily.”

“But is that something we even want…?” Aislinn murmured, and Happy nodded in understanding.

“That kind of thing has the tendency to swallow ya up.”

“True… or it could be the thing you always needed.”

“I don’t know about that Happy. I’ve seen what it does… I don’t wanna be that.”

“And your sister?”

Aislinn laughed as that had been an argument once before. Riona always hoped they’d become bigger, but Aislinn was content with how things were now. But Aislinn understood her sister’s reasoning. They’d suffered quite a bit over the years, financially speaking. If they could make it big… She and Riona could rely solely on their music and not worry about holding an extra job in order to make ends meet. Not that Aislinn didn’t share that same dream, she did. Yet feared what it could do all the same. She didn’t want things to change between her and her sister.

“Maybe I’m holdin’ her back…” She uttered in such a way.

This had Happy tilting his head in wonder. Aislinn wandered off however and was bumming a smoke off of Chibs.

“WHAT ARE YA DOIN’ LINNY?!” She heard once Bobby and Riona’s number was up.

Aislinn gathered this wide-eyed look and Chibs chuckled as she tried to hide it.

“Nothin’!” She called in return and had the lit cigarette behind her back.

“You’re full of shite is what ya are.” Riona had the mic on still and Aislinn’s entire face flushed over as everyone was looking her direction now.

“…owww…” the young woman murmured as the cigarette was burning her fingers.

Riona marched on over and spun her sister around.

“Ya dirty liar! Ya told me ya wasn’t smokin’ anymore.”

Chibs recoiled on his old lady’s behalf as he was partially to blame. Aislinn sighed as Riona pried the cigarette out of her hold and put it out.

“Riona…” She whined.

“Ya don’t need to be smokin’.”

“But Jax smokes!”

“Hey man, leave me out of this one.” He uttered, and Chibs laughed.

“That’s different, and ya know it.”


“Just is…”

“Ya make such a valid point!” Aislinn fired back.

“Are ya gonna join me or not!” Riona snipped.

Aislinn mocked her sister under her breath but headed that way. Chibs and Jax exchanged glances on this.

Aislinn grabbed one of the guitars and Bobby joined the guys.

“What’s next?” Tig excitably questioned, and Bobby shrugged.

“Not sure. I thought they were done…” He admitted looking slightly confused.

A fire’s gotta burn

The world is gonna turn

A rain has gotta fall

Fate is gonna call

But I just keep on breathing

Long as my heart is beating

Someone’s gotta hate

It’s never gonna change

Gets harder everyday

This is one hell of a place

Keep your heart from freezing

To keep yourself believing

But I won’t run

I’m not afraid

I’ll look em in the eye

Gonna hear me say


Riona and Aislinn leaned against one another as they sang the chorus.



My life

My love

My sex

My drug

My lust

My god it ain’t no sin

Can I get it

Can I get an amen

My grace

My church

My pain

My tears

My hurt

My god, I’ll say it again

Can I get it

Can I get an amen


The two split up from here and were walking amongst the Sons now as they continued singing.


Life has gotta kill

Faith is gonna blind

Hope is gonna fade

The truth is gonna lie

Sometimes there’s no reason

To justify the meaning

But I won’t run

I’m not ashamed

It’s gonna take more than this for me to break

My life

My love

My sex

My drug

My lust

My god it ain’t no sin

Can I get it?

Can I get an Amen?


Aislinn sang as she leaned in towards Chibs and the others. He and the others hollered out an “Amen,” and the girls smiled.


My grace

My church

My pain

My tears

My hurt

My god, I’ll say it again

Can I get it?

Can I get an amen?

My life, my love, my sex, my drug

My lust

My life

My love

My sex

My drug

My lust

My god it ain’t no sin

Can I get it?

Can I get an amen?

My grace

My church

My pain

My tears

My hurt

My god, I’ll say it again

Can I get it?

Can I get an amen?


The girls simultaneously bowed. The Sons and Mathias stood up and applauded them. There was hooting and hollering even as the girls put the guitars away. They took off their headsets, and Bobby joined them in picking up.

“Like I was never here…” Mathias said after shaking Chibs and Jax’s hands then parting ways.

Aislinn looked over as her sister seemed overly emotional.

“Ya alright?”

“Aye…” Riona said and was quick to wipe a stray tear off her cheek.

“Go…” Aislinn uttered, and Riona lifted her head on this.

“Be with him… while you can.”

Riona glanced Jax’s direction, and Aislinn nodded.

“We got this. Be with Jax.”

Riona pecked her sister on the cheek and headed off. Aislinn smiled amongst herself, and she and Bobby finished cleaning up.

“Gonna miss your face sweetheart,” Bobby said once they finished.

“Aye. I’ll miss you too Elvis.”

“Shouldn’t be for long…” He said while wrapping an around her shoulder and leading her Chibs’s direction.

“Hope not,” Aislinn said with Abel and Riona in mind.

Bobby kissed her hand in a gentleman-like fashion then went about his way.

Chibs didn’t have to ask. It was written all over her face. The Scot pulled her into his arms and kissed the top of her head.

“They’re gonna be just fine, love. I promise.”

“Where we goin’?” Riona asked as Jax led her about.

“You’ll see…” He whispered as they were on deck where the freight containers were.

He opened one of the containers and used a flashlight to look around. Riona’s jaw dropped once she saw the pillows and blankets. But that wasn’t all. Jax used his zippo to light a few candles.

“Where’d ya find those?!”

“I have my ways.” He uttered with a grin.

Jax removed her jacket and had her lay down. He took off his jacket as well then plopped down beside her.

“I know it’s not the most romantic place… but it’ll give us some privacy.”

“It’s perfect,” Riona said.

You’re perfect,” Jax said before hovering over her.

Riona went to argue this and Jax placed a single finger along her lips.

“Shhh,” he shushed before kissing her.

Jax removed her clothes one by one and left a trail of kisses along each part he exposed. The man took his time looking her over. He knew it’d be a while before they had this opportunity again. The thought was damn near depressing, but he did whatever he could to push those thoughts aside. Tonight was all about his girl and what he wanted to show her. Jax knew she’d question what he was doing and thinking about while they were apart. Considering his history, he couldn’t blame her. If anything, that had him working even harder to prove himself. He had to, or he’d lose her forever, and that’d kill him.

Jax ran his hand along every curve. He wanted this memory embedded into his head. He wanted to close his eyes and see her every time he did. This had the man breathing her in as that was another thing he didn’t want to lose, her scent. Jax’s eyes locked with hers as he slipped a couple of fingers in.

“No one can hear us. I want to hear you.” Jax made clear as he pumped those fingers within her.

The young woman arched back as he picked up the pace.

“That’s right, baby.” He encouraged as Riona cried out in pleasure.

Jax continued as he licked and sucked on her breasts.

“God, you smell so good.” He said as her arousal was getting to him something fierce.

The man licked his fingers clean.

“Fuck, I need more of that.” He uttered, and Riona let out a surprised gasp as he spread her legs and dived on in.

At this point, Riona wasn’t sure who was moaning more him or her. This made a first as she never knew of a man that got this turned on while servicing a woman. But Jax was in another world and wasn’t about to stop anytime soon. He had that tongue of his at work. He got so into it at one point he was kissing and licking all along her inner thighs and legs. The man couldn’t get enough. That arousal of hers was getting stronger and to the point where it was like a drug. The man was lightheaded when he forced himself to pull away.

“Riona…” he murmured in longing.

Jax unbuckled his belt, and Riona fished out the goods.

“Jaysus Jackson…” She whispered as the man had a good amount of precum oozing out of him.

“Can’t be helped…” He uttered but through gritted teeth as she had ahold of him and was watching it ooze out in sheer amazement.

“Come on babe… you’re killing me.” He said as she kept with the teasing strokes.

Riona sent him an evil grin, and Jax shook his head.

“I think that sinful mouth of yours needs a good fucking.”

“Do ya now?”

“Oh yeah, big time.”

Before she could even argue this the man got himself positioned and had her open up. Riona had never been so turned on. The way Jax went about it was very seductive. He caressed her cheek and went about it very slowly. She could feel his thumb along her lips off and on, and every time he did this his cock would throb intensely. Riona opened her eyes at one point and was looking up at him. He sent her a wink as he was watching her every move.

“You’re so beautiful Riona. I need you to know that. You have no idea what you mean to me.” Jax pulled out then cupped her chin.

“I’m yours, and you’re mine. Say it.”

“I’m yours.” She said and went to pleasure him again only to have him stop her.

“Say it Riona.”

“And you’re mine.” She said with a quivery lip, and Jax ran his thumb along that lip again.

“That’s right. Don’t forget that. I mean it Riona. No matter what happens I’m yours, and you’re mine.”

Jax drew back a breath as he wiped a tear off her cheek.

“C’mere.” As good as it felt, he could care less about being blown right now.

That wasn’t what tonight was about. Jax pulled her into his arms and held her. But as he did this Chibs and Aislinn came to mind. Chibs had let him in on the secret to his and Aislinn’s relationship and how they made things work when it came to intimacy. This had the man regarding Riona in thought. The Scot went as far as to admit that he felt like a teenager again. If Chibs and Aislinn could have that sort of connection… Why couldn’t he and Riona? Jax thought it rather odd as that nervousness hit. That wasn’t like him at all. But he hadn’t been this intimate with a woman, not since Tara. Even then, it was nowhere near this intense. Then again, he and Riona were always like this. That’s what made it so hard to part ways all those years ago. Jax didn’t count the endless encounters in-between. Those women meant nothing to him, nothing but a quick fix whenever he needed one.

Jax got her positioned, and the two ended up in this sweltering make-out session. They discovered a hunger they never knew was there. Riona took him by surprise when she ended up on top and was kissing him all over. Jax had his hands firmly planted along her ass and let her take over. Her eyes slid shut in ecstasy, and her tits were bouncing away.

“Oh fuck!” Jax exclaimed as he shot his load.

The man had this stunned look about him afterward.

“Holy shit…” He said as he couldn’t believe that actually worked.

Chibs wasn’t exaggerating, not even a little.

“Now that was hot!” He damn near howled, and Riona laughed.

“Aye, I have to agree. What brought that on?”

He wasn’t about to bring Chibs and Aislinn into this. Especially on something, Chibs had told him in confidence. Chibs was a private man, to begin with. He wasn’t one to talk about his sex life, much less his relationships. Jax wasn’t about to break that trust.

“Just the moment I guess…” he murmured with a shrug and brought her in for another kiss.

“So how many?” Jax hinted as to her orgasms.

“I lost count.”

“Good. I want you barely walking come morning.” Jax uttered, and Riona laughed.

“Now get some sleep because we’re going again in a couple hours.”

Riona laughed once again, but she hadn’t a clue just how serious he was. This little session of theirs repeated itself throughout the night and into the morning. Jax would worry about sleep later. He wanted whatever time he could get before they parted ways.

“Again daddy!” Abel squealed, and Jax tossed him into the air and caught him.


“AGAIN!” Abel said, and Jax did it again.

Jax had spent the last couple hours playing with his son. But the closer they got to porting the heavier that guilt became. He found it a struggle looking into those deep blue eyes of his. Abel was carefree and all smiles because he thought they were going home. They were ten minutes away from Portland, Maine when Chibs made his way over. The Sons had everyone’s bags ready to go. Piney and one of the prospects were going to meet them there as they couldn’t travel on their bikes, not with all the luggage they had. The Sons would part ways from there, aside from Chibs of course who would be leaving with Abel and the girls. They had a car under an alias name waiting for them. They would drive to Bar Harbor from there. Half-Sack had given Chibs the keys to his place already and went over whatever came to mind on the way.

The Scot gave Abel a bit of a noogie then scooped him up.

“Think we can talk, man to man?” Chibs asked, and Abel nodded.

“Good deal,” Chibs uttered and gave Jax a simple nod as he headed off with the boy.

Riona took Jax’s hand into her own as she saw the destroyed look on his face.

“I just got him back… and here we are.” He whispered with the beginning of tears in his eyes.

“I know… But we’ll take care of him, Jackson. You just focus on Galen and work on gettin’ us home.”

“I like that…” He uttered as to how she said home.

Riona smiled and placed a hand along Jax’s heart.

You are home.” She made clear, and Jax smiled.

“I love you Riona.”

“I love you, Jackson.”

Chibs sat Abel down in one of the chairs of the rec room. He took a seat right beside him and looked him in the eyes.

“Abel, we can’t head home just yet…”

Abel gathered this look of downright confusion.

“You and I have to go someplace far away and keep those lasses safe.”

“You mean Linny and Riona?”

“That’s right, lad. One of the monsters is still out there, and yer old man is tryin’ his hardest to find him. So in the meantime, we gotta keep the ladies safe. Think you can help me with that?”

“So daddy no go with us?”

“Fraid not lad. He’s got his hands full with this.”

Abel teared up a bit but gave a brave nod.

“I cans do that. We keep Linny and Riona safe.”

Chibs smiled then roughed up his hair a bit.

“I’m gonna need your help. Those gals are a handful!”

“They really is…” Abel said in agreement but wiped a stray tear off his cheek.

“I no see my friends or grandma yet?”

“Not yet but you will.”

“Is it going to be a very long time?”

“No Abel. Your old man’s gonna nip this in the bud just as soon as he can. Alright?”


“Now give your daddy a hug and help me pack up.”

Chibs knew the only way of going about this was to make Abel feel as though he were one of the boys with a mission of his own. If Abel felt like he was keeping those girls safe, Chibs knew he wouldn’t argue on the manner.

“Uncle Chibs?”


“Where did my grandpa go?”

“He decided to catch a ride on another boat.”

“Oh, okays. Cause I no sees him anywhere. Can I tells you a secret?” Abel asked as the boy thought back to his and Linny’s.

“Aye, ya sure can.”

“I no like grandpa very much. He mean to all my friends and daddy.”

Chibs had to refrain from laughing.

“Aye, between me and you… I don’t care for him very much either.”

“I no tell anyone. I promise.”

“Take care of him.” Riona pleaded and Happy nodded.

“I mean it Happy. He’s gonna need you. Without Chibs…” The young woman recoiled in thought, and Happy hugged her close.

“With my life…” He softly vowed.

Riona pecked him on the cheek then went on to hug the others goodbye.

Aislinn herself got a little choked up after hugging each of the boys. The sisters hadn’t realized just how close they’d gotten to the Sons, and the feeling was mutual. The Sons shared that same gloomy expression.

“Don’t do that,” Jax said as Aislinn hugged him last but started to tear up.

“Sorry.” She whispered, and Jax smiled.

“Take care of my son and that sister of yours.”

“I will,” Aislinn swore.

“Love you.”

“Love you too Jax.”

Jax embraced Riona and Abel once again then kissed them both on the forehead. Abel got a little teary-eyed and Riona was doing her best to hold it together.

Chibs said his goodbyes as well but had to hurry it up as they had to hit the road soon. They couldn’t afford to be made. That’d put the girls and Abel in danger. The Sons stayed behind, long enough to watch as the four of them loaded everything up into the red Nissan Maxima and hit the road.

Nissan Maxima

They had at least a four-hour trip ahead of them. As for the Sons, it’d be a whilee before they got home as they’d be riding cross country from here, while Piney and the prospect drove Jax’s truck.

Happy and Bobby placed a hand along Jax’s shoulders. The man pinched his eyes shut once they were out of sight.

“Let’s go…” He said with a heavy heart.

Piney, however, was looking to his son in wonder.

“Where’s your cut?”

“He can explain on the way. But we got a long ass trip ahead of us.” Jax made clear, and Piney sighed as if already knowing.

“Alright.” He muttered with disappointment.
