Lady & The Biker (Royal Bastards MC: Charleston, WV 2) - Page 76

“There’s only one man here.”

“The other guy ran when Mom shot at his partner. She got free and took one of the guns. She saved my life. Lynn said she w

anted to make it look like a murder suicide between Mom and me. She’s sick.”

“We got a suspect on the loose. Armed and dangerous. Canvas the neighborhood,” the detective talks into a radio. “Put an officer on the pregnant woman. She’s an accomplice.”

“Fucking hell,” Murder says. “I’m going to the hospital to see about Alexa.”

“We’ll be behind you. I want Wylla Mae to get checked out.”

“I’m okay. He punched me in the stomach but I’m sure I’m fine.”

East scoops me up into his arms. “You’re getting checked out now. Any other questions, Detective, you can ask her later. She’s pregnant and needs to see a doctor.”

The man says something, but East is already carrying me to his truck.

“I can walk.”

“Nope, not until you’ve been looked at.”

“I’m fine. I’m worried about Mom. She saved my life, East.”

“Alexa’s a fighter. She’s going to be okay.” He gets me in the truck and buckles me in.

“You don’t know that.” I frown as he closes my door and races to the other side to get in.


East drove like a bat of hell to the hospital. The moment he told them that I’m pregnant and had recently been attacked they took us straight to an exam room. I had an ultrasound, and everything looks good. We even got to hear the baby’s heartbeat. I’m waiting to be released. East went to see how my mother is doing. I hate the not knowing. What if she dies? She was so damn fearless, and I was scared shitless. I should have done something. I just don’t know what.

East was already looking for me when they heard the call about gunshots fired at my mom’s. Pam, Roane, and Jules had called to ask him if I were okay because I took off without a word. He knew something was up since I had just called and told him I was going shopping with Jules.

The curtain is drawn back slightly. “Can we talk?”

I stare at my father and don’t have the energy to send him away. Right now, I’m pretty damn thankful to be alive. “Sure.”

“I know I fucked up. With your mom and with you. I just want you to know I’m going to do whatever I can to make this shit right.”

“You don’t owe me anything. As for my mom that’s between you and her if she makes it.”

“I’m here if you need me.”

“I appreciate that.”

East returns and him and Murder share a look that I can’t describe but it’s like they are having a whole conversation with that one expression.

“How’s my mom?”

“She in surgery to remove the bullet but nothing major was hit. The biggest thing will be her recovery.”

“See you around, Cupcake.”

I roll my eyes, but he’s already gone.

“What was that about?”
