WRAPPING AN ARM AROUND MY neck, Katie stands to her tiptoes and presses her lips against mine, before pulling away with a sexy little laugh. “Here you are. Thought you got lost. It’s been close to an hour since I’ve seen you.”
Growling, I lift her off her feet, and roughly bite her bottom lip, before moving around to speak against her ear. “I’m always around, baby. Just got a little busy talking about club security. I’ll meet you downstairs in a minute. Just need to change first.”
With a small moan, Katie releases my neck and slowly runs her hands down my chest and abs, stopping at my belt and tugging on it. “Alright, but hurry. I’ve been waiting all night to get my greedy little hands on you and have you to myself.”
I roughly cup the back of her head, placing my forehead to hers. “Keep talking like that and I’ll bend you over the railing right now and fuck you. I don’t care that my house is full of people. You know me.”
“Mmm . . .” she moans. “Sounds tempting.”
“Hey, man. I need you for a minute.”
Pulling my forehead away from Katie’s, I look over to see Rowdy standing in the hallway with a drink in hand. He’s a good friend of mine and another security guard at the nightclub I work at. That’s exactly why I like having him around when I decide to throw a party here. More help keeping the people under control when needed. “What’s up, Rowdy? Everything okay downstairs?”
He shakes his head. “Nah, I need to talk to you in private. Now.”
Katie groans and kisses my cheek. “This is going to be a looong night.” Smiling, she gently slaps Rowdy’s cheek. “Don’t keep my man busy for too long, handsome. I need him if you know what I mean.”
Rowdy looks tense, but doesn’t say a word as he watches Katie walk away. “Let’s go back to the game room,” he says stiffly.
He doesn’t even wait for me to respond, before he walks away with purpose. Has me thinking that something major is happening.
I don’t like that feeling one bit. Has me on edge, ready for something to go down.
Once we get inside the room, I shut the door behind me and walk over to lean against the table. “Alright, well what the hell is going on?”
He runs his ink covered hands down his face and mumbles, making it hard for me to understand what he’s saying. “Cole is fucking Katie.”
Rage courses through me, causing my blood to boil, as I demand Rowdy to repeat the words that just left his mouth.
I’m hoping like hell that I heard wrong, because I’d hate to have to kill my best friend tonight.
“What the fuck did you just say?”
I grip the table behind me, feeling the veins in my neck begin to throb as I wait for him to speak again. Feels like the longest ten seconds of my life.
“Wait. Shit, I need this first.” Holding up his finger, he takes a long swig of his vodka and leans against the wall, before pulling out a joint and lighting it. He takes two quick hits, before blowing out a cloud of smoke. “Cole is fucking your girl. They’re sneaking around behind your damn back, man.” His eyes meet mine, showing me just how gone he is right now. Even high and completely wasted though, he knows that’s something you don’t fuck around with me about.
“How sure are you?” I growl out, squeezing the table tighter. Something’s about to break soon. Probably my damn hand at this rate. “You better be damn fucking sure, Rowdy and not just assuming.”
Flexing his jaw, he downs the rest of his drink and then slams the empty glass down next to him, looking pissed that I would even question him. “I wouldn’t come to you out of a damn assumption, asshole. I saw the two of them sneak out of the guest room together, looking thoroughly fucked. I wasn’t quite as drunk ten minutes ago, but seeing one of my best fucking friends sneak around with my other best friend’s girl, had me downing a few shots on the way to find your ass.”
Pushing away from the table, I turn around and flip it over, before running my hands over my face and yelling, “Fuuuuck!”
I’ve never felt so betrayed in my life and there’s not a damn word that can explain how I truly feel right now. Over twenty years of friendship with Cole and this is the shit I get. He sleeps with my girlfriend of four fucking years.
“I’d be pissed too, man,” Rowdy says from across the room as I pace, trying to gather my thoughts and piece this shit together. “Cole just broke the bro code and in your house to top that shit off. That’s messed up. I’d kill him.”
