Snake's Addiction:Chaos Bleeds, 6By: Sam Crescent
Chaos Bleeds, 6
“When’s Devil getting back?” Snake asked, taking a sip of his whiskey. He turned back toward the bar seeing as the main door wasn’t opening to show him Devil, the Chaos Bleeds club Prez, was back from his little escapade to Fort Wills. Alex had called him over a week ago to tell them what had happened with Tabitha, and now they were all waiting to see what was going on. None of them liked to think of Tabitha in the hospital. She was only a little girl, and no one messed with little girls as far as the Chaos Bleeds were concerned.
“I don’t know. Why? You want to suck his dick?” Dick asked, taking a seat beside him.
“Shut the fuck up. I’m concerned,” Snake said. “It’s not every day you hear about a fucking four year old knocked unconscious.”
“It’s the world we live in, and it’s fucked up.” Dick opened a can of soda while Snake continued to drink his whiskey. Snake wasn’t a recovering addict whereas Dick was. He didn’t give a shit about drinking in front of Dick.
“We’re all concerned. Regardless of the world no kid should have to see that,” Ripper said, drying a glass behind the bar.
“Where’s Judi?” Dick asked.
“She’s up in my room, resting. I can’t wait for this fucking baby to come. The wait is killing me.”
“We’ve all got to wait.” Snake take a sip of his drink, glancing back at the door. “You don’t think it was some kind of ambush?”
“Fuck, man, Tabitha’s been hurt. That’s all we know,” Ripper said.
“So why call Devil?” Snake asked looking at Dick then at Ripper. “The last time we were in town, Tiny wanted us out of it. Why call Devil now?”
“Because Devil has Simon,” Dick said.
“What’s that got to do with it?” Snake was getting tired of being left in the dark. He was jonesing for a fight. Ever since he’d gone to see her he’d been waiting for her to come back to him. He was getting sick and tired of always waiting for her. The New Year had come and gone, but still nothing from her.
He’d kissed her, and where was she?
“Where’s who?” Mia asked, walking up behind him.
“What?” Snake asked.
“Dude, you totally said that shit out loud,” Ripper said.
“What?” Snake wasn’t getting on well right now.
“You said you’d kissed her and now what?” Mia said, leaning over to snag Dick’s soda from the counter.
“Hey, I was drinking that,” Dick said.
“Is this about that nurse? What was her name?” Mia asked.
“Jessica,” Death said, walking up with Brianna. His arm was slung over the girl’s shoulders, pulling her in.
Snake didn’t like this. He hated being the center of attention, and the way the guys were looking at him right now, it wasn’t helping him any.
“This is the same nurse who you went on a date with?” Mia asked.
“Ripper,” Judi said, coming downstairs.
All of them turned to watch as a heavily pregnant Judi came downstairs.
“Babe, what have I fucking told you?” Ripper dropped the glass he was using to run to Judi’s side. His hand was on her stomach as he placed her arm around his neck.
“Something doesn’t feel right.”
“What do you mean it doesn’t feel right?” Ripper asked.
“It hurts, Ripper. Look, my feet are swollen.”
Standing away from the bar, Snake looked at Judi’s feet to find they were swollen. She wore a lace nightdress that landed to her knees. Just one glance at her pale, sweaty face, and Snake knew in his gut something wasn’t right. Her head lolled a bit as if she couldn’t keep it upright.
“Are you okay? Baby, I need you to talk to me.”
“I need to go to the hospital, Ripper. Something isn’t right.” Judi screamed suddenly, grabbing her stomach. “Ouch, it hurts. It hurts.”
Snake didn’t wait around for orders. Rushing out of the clubhouse, he jumped into the car as Ripper carried Judi out. Dick and Death were helping him.
“It’s too soon. I can’t give birth. It’s too soon. Call Lexie.” Judi stopped talking as a scream erupted from her.
“We’ll do it.” Ripper climbed in behind Judi. “I’ve got you, baby.”
Dick joined Snake in the passenger side. “The brothers will round up and meet us at the hospital.”
Putting his foot to the gas, Snake went as fast as the car would let him. He needed to get Judi, the club princess, to the hospital.
She kept screaming and panting.
“I’ve got you, baby. I’ve got you. We’re going to get through this. I promise you. Just breathe.”
