Amy (Aces MC Series Book 3.5)(8)

By: Aimee-Louise Foster

I lay on the bed deep in my thoughts when a light knock on the door startled me. I wasn't ready for visitors and was hoping that it was only one of the duty nurses asking if everything was okay. I slowly sat up, still processing everything that had gone on recently and was surprised when Spike put his head around the door.

"Are you up for visitors?" he asked hopefully.

"No I'm not Connor, I've got a lot of things going on at the moment." He raised his brows and stared at me confused by my address towards him. I'd always referred to him and the rest of the guys by their road names but I had just this minute decided to call him by his Christian name trying my best to distance myself as much as possible from the club and its members. Connor nodded his head slowly before retreating from the room making sure he closed the door behind him.

I took a deep breath and rested my hand on my tummy rubbing it comfortingly. I knew there wasn't a baby inside but I felt empty knowing that I would never be able to have children. The tears fell without me even realising I was crying for my loss, staining my nightgown with the water dripping from my cheeks. How the hell was I going to get over this?


"What do you mean she doesn't want to see me?" I asked trying to make my way past Diesel.

"As I said, it's not just you it's everyone. The doctor said she needed to rest and that means no visitors." Diesel grabbed my forearms tightly making it clear that I wasn't getting past, no matter how hard I tried.

I was tense from this standoff and how long it was taking for me to be able to see her. I'd gotten the call from Bear earlier, informing me that Amy had been injured in an altercation with the Dyers but at this stage, I was still none the wiser as to how serious it was as no one was talking. I knew that she'd had an operation and that she was now in recovery but I needed to see her for my own peace of mind. I stepped back and Diesel's hands fell from my arms as I regained my composure.

"Do you mind if I sit and wait?" I asked pointing towards the chairs in the waiting area not far from Amy's room.

Diesel shrugged, "I can't guarantee how long it'll be before she's allowed visitors but it's a free country." Diesel stated a little standoffish before he turned on his heels and walked towards Spike. I suppose he was still concerned about Amy's welfare although he must've known that I'd never hurt her. I placed my hand in my pocket and wrapped my fingers firmly around the box containing the ring that I was going to use to propose to Amy. I'd bought it six weeks ago and had been looking for the perfect opportunity to ask the woman I loved to marry me but things had been a little hectic of late. It wasn't the norm to propose, you could simply claim a woman by making her your old lady but Amy was special, one in a million and she deserved better.

I sat on the blue plastic chairs that were positioned around the waiting room, and stretched out my legs trying to get comfortable as I knew I could be sitting here for a while. Diesel was protective of Amy and rightly so but if he was stating no one was to visit her, even I wasn't that fucking stupid to try and defy him.

Sitting alone gave me time to reflect. I'd pursued Amy about six months ago, I knew that I shouldn't have but she was fucking gorgeous and I couldn't help myself. At first, it was my cock doing all the talking and she seemed to enjoy being my booty call as much as I did hers but as time went on, I developed feelings for her. I'd told myself when it first started that I wasn't to fall for her, she was Diesel's little sister, Spike's cousin and the clubs sweetheart but there was this pull between us that I just couldn't resist.

I took the small black box from my pocket and flipped the lid open to see the classic white gold band set with a single diamond. I removed the ring gently and placed it onto my little finger as I went through the wording in my head that I'd been practising for the past six weeks. It wasn't everyday that a man proposed and I wanted to make sure I asked her correctly. I smiled to myself knowing that the setting could've been a little better than a hospital but this incident had given me the kick up the arse I needed and I wasn't too bothered about details I just wanted to make Amy my wife.

"That looks expensive."

I glanced from the ring to see Spike standing in front of me with a huge smile on his face. I'd been so preoccupied that I hadn't heard him join me in the waiting room. I smiled and took the ring from my finger to place it back into the box for safe keeping.
