What is it that makes us want the things we just can’t have? Until I met Taylor, I’d never taken the time to give it much thought. If there was something I wanted, I went after it. When she walked into my life, everything changed. I felt like my whole world was turned upside down. She was my best friend’s sister, and I knew I had just met the one girl I could never have. I think the universe was just trying to fuck with my head.

That afternoon, Ace had wanted to borrow some of his dad’s tools so he could install a new upgraded muffler on his bike. He’d always thought his dad’s tools were better than what we had at the clubhouse. They were really close, and I had to admit I’d always been a little jealous of their relationship. Ace used any excuse he could find to spend time with him. When he was just a kid, his dad had given him the nickname Ace, and it’d stuck. Now, everyone used it.

He’d asked me to come along to his parents’ house so I could help him with the muffler. Ace was always working on that damn bike of his. I mean, yeah, it was pretty fucking awesome, just a little much for my taste. I’m just like my bike -- what you see is what you get. I didn’t consider myself to be a work in progress. Ace was a different kind of man entirely. He was always trying to make himself better, and I admired that about him.

We were focused on his bike when Taylor came barreling out of the house looking like someone had just pissed in her Cheerios. The minute I laid eyes on her, I knew I would never be the same. She ignited a fire inside of me that I’d never be able to put out. Without a doubt, she was the most beautiful girl I had ever seen. I didn’t have any business checking her out like I did, but I couldn’t help myself. She was wearing one of those short tennis skirts that showed off her long, tan legs, and her tiny tank top barely covered her abdomen. Damn, it’s so sexy when a woman doesn’t mind showing a little skin.

Her blonde hair was pulled back into a tight ponytail and her blue eyes were fixed on Ace. She marched right over to where we were working and gave him a questioning look.

“You know I have that big meet today, right? I thought you said you were gonna take me… or did you forget?” Taylor asked as she stared down at him with her hand on her hip.

“I can’t do it today, Sis. I need to finish this, and then I have to get back to the clubhouse,” he replied without looking up from his bike.

“Really, Ace? You know I was counting on you. My car is still in the shop, and Mom is working at the office today. I need you to do this for me. You know we’re playing against Caldwell County. I’ve gotta beat that stuck-up heifer today, especially after all the bragging she did about beating Jenny. She’s not gonna know what hit her when I show up. That is… if I show up!” she explained.

Ace grimaced and said, “I told ya, I can’t do it today. I got shit I gotta do. Go get one of your girls to come get ya, or call one of those guys you’re always talking to on the phone.”

“I’ve gotta be there in twenty minutes! I don’t have time to find somebody else. I really need you to take me. Please,” Taylor said, a pleading look on her face. “Besides, if you take me, you can see if that new shotgun muffler is worth a shit. I still say you should have gotten the staggered dual mufflers. They were really awesome.” I was impressed that she knew something about motorcycles. Most girls could care less. They thought that bikes were hot, but they never took the time to learn anything about them.

“Shit. You know you’re a real pain in the ass.” Ace stood up and brushed his hands off on his jeans. He quickly started putting his tools away. “I’ll drop you off, but you’ll have to find another way home.”

Ace turned to me and said, “You mind if we swing by the school? If I don’t do it, I’ll never hear the end of it.”

“No problem,” I said. I couldn’t take my eyes off of her. Her pouty lips turned up into a sexy smile. She knew she had him wrapped around her finger. I didn’t know why he even tried to tell her no. We both knew there was no way he was going to let her down.
