“I’m almost there, where are you?”

She rattled off a coffee shop inside the airport, one he wouldn’t have to pass through security to get to while he went to find a parking spot.

“I can come out to you,” she offered.

“I’ll be damned. You aren’t carrying your luggage through that place. I’m parking right now. See you soon.”

He got out of his car, leaving his cut inside for the time being. Airport security tended to get nervous when they noticed the leather and patches that showed his membership into the Heaven Hill Motorcycle Club, Bowling Green Chapter. Going through the automatic doors, he took his sunglasses off and let his eyes adjust to the muted light inside the building. Quickly reading the signs, he made his way towards where Jessica had indicated she would be.

Jessica sat in the corner of the coffee shop, her head down, bent over her phone. A couple of people had already recognized her, even with the changes she had tried to make to her appearance. What she wanted was to be out of this place and soon. Glancing up, she caught sight of Layne making his way towards her. Tamping down the urge to run to him and throw her arms around his waist, she quickly got up from the table and slowly walked towards him.

“Layne,” she called out to him once she was close enough.

The smile that spread across his face told her more than words that she had taken the right chance. She had come to the only person that could help her.

“You wanna get outta here?” he asked, as he put his arm around her shoulder and pulled her tightly to him.

The kiss he dropped on her forehead caused her to close her eyes. She breathed deeply and willed the tension to leave her shoulders. “I do,” she nodded.

“How much luggage do you have?”

“It’s over there,” she pointed to the table she had been sitting out.

There he saw a duffle bag and three suitcases. “You plannin’ on stayin’ a while?”

She nodded, but didn’t comment.

If there was one thing Layne didn’t like, it was flying blind. “You know that when we get back on the road, you’re going to have some explaining to do. I have a lot of shit going on right now.”

“I know,” she nodded, swallowing hard against the lump that had risen in her throat. “I didn’t mean to put you out at all.”

“Now, I didn’t say you put me out. I just want you to understand, there’s a lot of shit going on right now in Bowling Green and with the club. You sure you want to be involved with that?”

The double meaning didn’t escape her, she knew the things he was involved in were sometimes illegal. “I just need to get away and you were the first person that I thought of. I need to disappear for a while.”

“You sure nothing is wrong here?” His tone told her that he didn’t believe a word that had come out of her mouth.

“Can you just respect that I really don’t want to talk about it right now?”

That he could respect. There were a lot of things he didn’t want to talk about. Didn’t mean that he didn’t want to talk about what was bothering her, but even he could tell that she was distressed.

“Okay.”

And like that, he didn’t ask her another word. As they walked to his car, she looked around at the landscape and did her best to keep up with him.

“Is it always this hot?” she asked, pulling her shirt away from her sticky body when they made it and he popped the trunk.

“If you’re plannin’ on stayin’ – you might as well get used to it. Hot and muggy haven’t even begun yet.”

She nodded as she watched him lift her luggage into his trunk and then slam it shut. Walking over to the passenger side of the car, she opened the door and slid into the seat, breathing easily for the first time since she had left Calabasas. He watched her closely as she removed her sunglasses and the hat that had obscured her red hair.

“I haven’t been able to say it yet, but thank you for coming to get me.”

Layne took her hand in his and rubbed the back of it. “It’s not a problem at all. I’m glad that you came to me – even if you haven’t been forthcoming in what the fuck is going on – I’m glad that we still have that kind of relationship.”

“There’s nowhere else I knew to go, nowhere else I felt safer.”

He raised a dark eyebrow. “So you’re feeling unsafe?”

“Please don’t try to read into this,” Jessica shook her head, looking out the window as he directed them back onto the interstate.

“I’m not, I’m just trying to figure out what you want from me here.”

She knew that was a fair way to feel, but she just didn’t want to get into it. “All I want is for you to be my friend.”

“Then that I can do,” he smiled across to her. “I’m already your friend.”

Jessica sighed deeply and leaned her head back against the seat. Within minutes, she was fast asleep leaving Layne to wonder just what he had gotten himself into.
