“Because I know you’re on the shot.” He yawns.

“What? How?” Not the answer I was expecting.

“I know that you see Dr. Nelson every three months. Have been since … well, you know.”

I’m not sure what to say to that. I lay my head on his chest and listen to his breathing even out until he slightly snores. And I let out a long sigh. He’s right. I’ve been on the shot for four years now.

“Haven, what’s wrong?” Emilee asks, her heels clanking on the floor while she tries to keep up with me.

“I need the bathroom,” I answer, hurrying.

“Are you gonna get sick?”

We round the corner and come to a quick stop when we see one the Kings leaning up against the men’s bathroom door, holding it closed.

Titan has his arms crossed over his chest, left foot planted on the floor while his right knee is bent, and his black boot is resting on the door behind him. And he has a sucker in his mouth. The moment he sees us, he reaches up and pulls it out with a pop. “What are you two doing out of class?” he questions.

I don’t answer and neither does Emilee because she doesn’t know why I dragged her down the hallway. I picked the least busy hall this early in the morning. College students still roam the halls, but it’s dead right now.

His eyes move from mine to hers. He looks her up and down, lingering on her chest and thighs for a few extra seconds. When they reach her lips, he licks his.

I look at her with raised brows. What have I missed? She turns her head but not before I see the blush on her face.

A noise from inside the bathroom has me taking a step toward him. “What’s going on in there?”

“Nothing. Move along.” Then he winks at Emilee. “You can stay. Need a reminder …?”

“Titan …” She growls but there’s a blush again.

What the hell?

The door opens a tad, but Titan holds it shut with his weight. And I finally understand. The Kings must be in there, beating the shit out of some unlucky soul. It happens. Often. The Dark Kings are bullies. They will make you bleed. No matter if it’s with their fists or a knife. I once heard that Cross burned a guy on the face with a cigarette.

Without caring what’s going on, I reach over and grab E’s hand, yanking her into the women’s bathroom. I rush into a stall. “What was that about?” I ask, undoing my jeans.

She sighs. “Well, you know last weekend when we fucked the guys in the game room at the party?”

“Yeah,” I answer slowly, wondering where she’s going with that.

“That wasn’t the first time I’ve had an audience.”

I nod to myself. “I remember you and Bones mentioning that.” I unzip my backpack and pull out a tampon before I finish up in the stall.

“Yeah, well …” She pauses when I exit. “Before that, I let Bones fuck me in the men’s locker room after school hours.”

I remember that too. It was when I was mad at Luca and thought he was texting me, but it was her phone going off. “That’s nothing new.” I snort washing my hands.

“Yeah, but Titan was in there and watched us.”


She bites her bottom lip. “At the time, I didn’t think Bones knew, but what he said in the game room last weekend confirmed that he knew Titan was in there watching us.”

I stare at her wide-eyed. “Well … Are you mad at Bones?”

“No. Should I be?”

I chuckle, yanking towels out of the dispenser.

“I … uh, I …”

“What?” I turn to face her. “Spit it out.” She knows she can tell me anything. The girls and I don’t keep secrets from one another.

“I wanted him to join us,” she admits.

My eyes bug out. I was not expecting that to come out of her mouth.

“I know.” She places her hands over her face. “I’m such a slut.”

“Hey.” I pull them away. “You are not a slut. You’ve only ever slept with Bones. It’s totally understandable to want to try out another dick.”

She laughs.

“There’s nothing wrong with being sexually hungry, E.”

She looks down at the floor and nods once.

“And Bones obviously seems okay with it. Maybe you should offer—”

“Absolutely not!” she interrupts me, turning to face the mirror. She slides her hand down her white Gucci dress. “Enough about me. Let’s talk about you.”

“I’ve never had a three-way,” I admit. And although I was one hundred percent turned on when I watched Bones fuck her, I have no interest in a threesome.

She rolls her eyes. “No, I mean why did we have to skip class to rush in here? Did you pee your pants?” She chuckles softly. “Or were you afraid you were going to shit yourself?”
