In the beginning, there was one determined man and one strong woman. In their struggles, they created a dynasty.
Brick had one mission since he was a boy: become a Dragon Runner. The motorcycle club meant everything to him. Blood and bone from his brothers paid the Dragonâ€™s dues time and time again. And watching it split apart was more than he could handle.
Then he met Betsey.
An unwanted daughter born into abuse, Betsy lived her life beatdown under a rigid thumb, never allowed to be herself. Her one goal was to leave her abusive family and be free. She fought on the losing end of that fight.
Then she met Brick.
A tentative knock followed by the wooden classroom door opening caught his attention. Mr. Atwood, the school principal, entered, followed by a new girl. A wave ran through the room as every student sat up straight to get a look at the newcomer. She wore a mud-colored dress that did little to hide an impressive chest and rounded hips. Her plain brown hair was pulled back into a long ponytail, and she hunched into herself as she met the twenty pairs of eyes fixed on her.
â€œWe have a new student, Betsey Fullerton. She and her family just moved here from Mineral Springs, and her father is the head minister at First Methodist Church. Letâ€™s everyone welcome Betsey and help her learn her way around.â€
Several â€œHi, Betseysâ€ popped up from multiple students, but Deuceâ€™s comment rang out over them all.
â€œDamn, look at the size of them titties. Betcha can shelve books on them things.â€
The room went silent. The principal turned beet red but said nothing. Blackjackâ€™s reputation was well known, and no one wanted to anger either him or any of the other Dragon Runners.
But Betsey was new. She didnâ€™t know the town or the motorcycle club that many of them feared. Her blue eyes lasered to the back of the room and landed on Brickâ€™s. The zap from that look held him in place and burned through to his toes. She wasnâ€™t scared. She wasnâ€™t confused. She understood exactly what was uttered and why. Her expression was one ofâ€¦ ofâ€¦ contempt.
Betseyâ€™s gaze moved to Deuce, who was laughing at his own joke. She straightened up to her above-average height, and her perfect hourglass figure became clearer even in the ugly dress. Her breasts were full and larger than most other girls of the same age. The dress nipped in sharply at the waist and flared out over her curvy hips. Brick had overheard more than one conversation from girls talking about the right skirts, the right shoes, or the right hairstyle. Betsey stood out proudly and with no apology for her less-than-fashionable appearance. She cocked a hip to the side, crossed her arms under her breasts, lifting and displaying them even more, and stared down at the laughing cocky boy with the shiner on his eye.
Brick lost his breath at the picture she presented. He reached over and popped his friend in the back of his head. â€œShut up, dumbass.â€
â€œWhat the fuck, asshole? Iâ€™m just messinâ€™.â€
â€œMess with someone else. That girl is gonna be mine someday.â€
ML Nystrom had stories in her head since she was a child. All sorts of stories of fantasy, romance, mystery and anything else that captured her interest. A voracious reader, sheâ€™s spent many hours devouring books; therefore, she found it only fitting she should write a few herself!
ML has spent most of my life as a performing musician and band instrument repair technician, but that doesnâ€™t mean sheâ€™s pigeon-holed into one mold. Sheâ€™s been a university professor, belly dancer, craftsperson, soap maker, singer, rock band artist, jewelry maker, lifeguard, swim coach, and whatever else she felt like exploring. As one of her students said to her once, â€œLifeâ€™s too short to ignore the opportunities.â€ She has no intention of ever stoppingâ€¦ so welcome to her story world. She hopes you enjoy it!
