Sebastian had one rule.
No women on the back of his bike. Period.The one time he broke that rule, he killed the woman that was carrying his child.Then comes Baylee Roberts.

A helmet.To My…Baylee Roberts innocently walked into her bathroom never expecting that she’d find a man in there. It is her bathroom after all, and she lives alone.From the instant he placed his hat on her head to protect her from the sun, Baylee’s mind becomes filled with thoughts of a certain biker.She really shouldn’t go there.

“Why wouldn’t you have called out or something?” Tillie sneered.
I turned my head so I could look at Tillie.
She was cute and blonde, with big boobs. The skirt and leather vest she was wearing barely covered her breast area and crotch, fairly screaming ‘I’m easy!’
“At the time, I didn’t want to scare y’all. Guess it wasn’t the best of decisions now that I think about it.” I admitted.
“No. That was stupid. Especially around here. That shit’ll get you hurt.”
I snorted at the irony in the statement. “It did.”
“Trance didn’t know it was you. He’d have never hurt you on purpose.” Tillie continued.
So it was Trance who’d sacked me like a quarterback. Turning my eyes to his face, I didn’t see an ounce of regret written there, which wasn’t a surprise. He wouldn’t apologize. I was the one in the wrong, walking around out there without announcing myself. Hell, I’d have done the same thing. Or at least tried to.
“I know.” I said softly.
“You want us to get out of here? I can call Porter.” Trance asked Sebastian.
“Yeah, if you don’t mind. I don’t want to leave her alone.” Sebastian confirmed.
“But you’ll miss your fight! People have been waiting weeks for you to come back and fight.” Tillie cried.
I sat up painfully and turned so I could see Sebastian’s face.
“You fight? Fight what? Like in a boxing ring?” I asked him.
Sebastian’s eyes took in the new red mark on my cheek and ran the pad of his thumb over it. “Yeah, something like that. It’s no big deal.”
“No big deal?” Tillie screeched.
“Enough.” Trance hissed at her.
Her mouth snapped shut comically, and I turned back to Sebastian. “I would like to know more about you. Ten more minutes for my pill to kick in, and I’ll be able to move more. I’d like to see you fight, if that’s all right.”
Sebastian’s thumb on my hip hit a sore spot, making my breath hiss into my lungs through clenched teeth.
When he saw the pain in my eyes, he lifted the front of my shirt to review the damage.
“Oh, my God.” Tillie gasped making me turn from Sebastian to Tillie.
Tillie’s gaze was on my lifted shirt, and the bruising I’d received from the broken ribs.
“Who did that?”
The question was from Trance, who was now at my side as well, staring down of the mottling of bruises that covered the torso of my body.
“A guy, while I was at work.” I explained trying in vain to tug the shirt down that Sebastian was trying to tug up.
Sebastian’s eyes skimmed my stomach and ribs, surveying the damage. “Jesus this looks bad.”
“I’m a bruiser. But you know that already. Part of the deal with me, unfortunately. You should have seen me after the accident a couple of years ago. I looked awful.”
With one last look, Sebastian tugged my shirt back into place and leaned his forehead against my shoulder. “I don’t like it.”
“Me either.” I agreed.
