Ryan let go of me and headed outside to one of the other rooms that weren’t really used. I knew James would be really annoyed that he had proposed, and I had accepted, but honestly, I didn’t really care. I loved Ryan. I had no doubt in my mind I was going to marry him.
As I watched Ryan disappear into the room, Bella waddled over to me. She really was massive. “Are you sure there is just the one baby in there?” I laughed. “Yep. We checked, more than once.” She laughed. She was really glowing. Pregnancy really suited her, she looked beautiful. It made me feel a little broody myself. I couldn’t wait to start a family with Ryan. I knew he wanted kids, he had told me, especially since Bella started showing more. “So, I am totally taking credit for this engagement by the way” she laughed, as she hugged me. “I agree” I laughed back. &ldquo
Chapter 35 Buzz“Julia, can you give Ryan and I a few minutes sweetheart?” Julia nodded, “yeah, sure. I’ll wait in your room for you.” She continued, looking at me. I smiled and kissed her on the top of her head. “I’ll be up as quickly as I can baby.” I promised.After Julia had left, Ink turned to me. “Tommy, the Bandits Prez, came to us with some information. One of the men who broke into your house is an ex member of his club. He prospected there around 10 years ago and then spent a few years there before disappearing.”“What do you mean, disappearing?”“Exactly what I said. They went to look for him one day and he was gone. He left half of his shit there, so they weren’t sure what had happened. He hasn’t been seen since. Anyway, he is a nasty fuck. Tommy told me that their Prez at the time, considered kicking him. He was
Chapter 36BuzzMy intel had paid off. At 9am, the following morning, Tom Jackson left his little apartment on a quiet street in Queens, for his routine chiropractor’s appointment. We had called Holgate to let him know we almost had him, and then we would be on our way home. We had decided to rent a van and drive back to North Carolina. It will take around 8 hours with good traffic to get us back home. Then Julia and I would take a few days off to drive it back and then we can go wedding shopping in New York. She would love that.I was driving the van. I needed to stay out of sight or Jackson would know what was going on. Tank and Rider were going to get him on the street, Creek would be inside the van with Gears, waiting to open the doors to get him in, and then I would drive off. We sat outside the apartment block at 8:55 on the Tuesday morning.Finally, at 8:59, Jackson left the building. He looked up and down th
Chapter 37BuzzIn the end, I couldn’t get my hands on Jackson. Ink pulled me aside and told me “Something has happened between Tank and Kirsty. It seems like they broke up last night.” I immediately felt guilty. I was talking to Tank last night about his relationship, had I said something?“Anyway,” Ink continued. “Tank has had trouble controlling his temper, so I made the decision to have Holgate pick him up, before Tank gets his hands on him.” I nodded my understanding. “Holgate will be here in around ten minutes.”After Jackson was carted away, handcuffed, in the back of Holgate’s cruiser, Julia ran up to me, jumping up at me, wrapping her legs around my body. “You’re amazing. I love you so much.” She said, kissing my neck. “Wanna hear the plan for the next three days baby?” She nodded, eagerly. “You’re gonna get that
EpilogueJuliaIt had finally arrived…. My wedding day.After we learned of my shocking pregnancy, we had decided to move the wedding up to February. Even if I was showing by then, the dress would be able to be let out a bit. Bella had her baby the day after I found out I was pregnant. A beautiful baby boy called Samuel James Warner. They named him James after my brother.We decided to wait a few months before we told anyone that I was pregnant. It was too risky, especially after the awful morning sickness I had been suffering with. We just wanted to make sure the baby was fine before we told everyone. We told people that we were moving up the wedding because of problems with a supplier, and luckily, they believed us. Nobody commented on me not drinking, because I didn’t drink a lot anyway. We should be able to keep our secret for a little bit longer.I had set my alarm nice and early in the morning, n
