Gash (The Skulls #13)(10)

By: Sam Crescent



“Being a leader was always going to happen, Lash. It’s not just about being a hard ass or having muscle that makes a good Prez, a good leader.” Tiny rocked back on his heels. “I’ve been a good and bad one. I learned on the job. After shit went down with The Darkness, I knew I wanted Fort Wills to be a town that everyone felt safe in.”

“Devil wants me to create a safe house for their women.”

“A war is coming, and we have to be ready. I fucked up with Devil, but this is your call on what you make.”

“What would you decide?” Lash asked.

“Son, I’m not about to give you the answers you’re looking for. I didn’t have anyone to rely on when I had to make a choice. It’s not easy, and I know it fucking sucks, but you’ve got to have faith in yourself. What is your heart telling you?”

“My heart?”

“It’s corny and shit, but your heart is in the club. Your woman, Angel, I never would have put her as a strong woman, and she’s certainly proven that I can be wrong. She’s strong enough to take on the club women, and she doesn’t even need to use violence.”

Lash smiled, thinking about the last few months of him training her, not only to fight but to also use a weapon. She was becoming one hell of a shot. He was never going to piss her off or risk getting his dick blown off.

“What do you want to do?” Tiny asked.

Taking a deep breath, he stared up at the clubhouse. It had been broken into, burnt down, rebuilt, and invaded. This was his home, it was his life, and he was never going to leave it.

“We’re going to have Devil’s back when his enemy comes to call. Chaos Bleeds, they’re our allies, and it’s time the world knows it.”

Tiny nodded, slapping his back. “Go and rest. There’s plenty of time to fight, but resting, it’s a luxury during times of war.”

They made their way into the clubhouse together, and Lash didn’t wait around. He headed toward his room, and opened Anthony’s door first. His little boy was sleeping. Anthony was already in school, and learning fast. Resting his head against the doorframe, Lash watched him sleep before entering his room.

Angel was curled up on her side, looking beautiful like always. He removed his clothes quietly so he didn’t wake her.

As he climbed in behind her, she released a sigh. “Where did you go?” she asked.

“I had some thinking to do.”

“Did you come to a decision?”

“Yes, I did. We’re going to help Devil.”

“I knew you’d come to the right decision.” She wriggled into his arms, and he cupped her stomach.

“You know I was going to let the Chaos women come here?”

“It’s the right thing to do. It’s why I love you, and I’ll always love you no matter what you do. You’re a good man.”

He would never understand Angel, but he loved her with his whole heart.





Chapter Three



Charlotte was so warm, and it felt so good to be warm. She opened her eyes, and frowned as she blinked sleep from her eyes. It had been over seven years since she had a good night’s sleep free of nightmares. She became aware of a rock hard body at her back with a thigh between hers.

That was something she’d never woken up to. Gash had been completely out of it the night they had slept together, and there hadn’t been any kind of snuggling like this.

Glancing behind her back, she saw that Gash was wrapped around her. His large body held her in place, not letting her move.

“Stop moving,” he said.

“You’re awake.”

“It’s hard to sleep, babe, with you moving around all crazy. Just go back to sleep.”

“You’re holding me!” She yelled the words, shocked that he was holding her. It had been the best night’s sleep of her life, and now she knew why. Gash had been wrapped around her, and she couldn’t think of any other excuse as to why she slept so well.

“I’ve not slept like that in years, and it feels so damn good.”

She tried to wriggle again and came into contact with his dick. He was rock hard. Charlotte didn’t know what she was expecting, but it wasn’t that.

“Is that what I think it is?”
