No Boundaries:A Bad Boy Sports Romance(9)

By: Violet Paige

I couldn’t say what the exact date was that I decided Hunter was going to be my project. Or when I decided that I would do everything I could to watch over him and protect him. It just sort of happened. Like when the leaves changed in fall. It happened in front of my eyes day after day until I was the one responsible to pick him up in the morning from the foster home where he stayed. I enrolled him in the center’s community club program and was responsible for returning him home at the end of the day.

Some days I kept him a little late and we’d get dinner. Or if we had an early release day I’d take him to a movie.

One look at those big green eyes and a face that was constantly covered in smudges. Shaggy blond hair that fell into his eyes and my heart fell for this kid.

“Have fun, Hunter. I’ll be inside grading the writing assignments, ok?”

He had wandered to the outside of the circle. I was worried he might not make it inside the group and would spend the afternoon on the perimeter. I couldn’t hover. I couldn’t intervene every time. I knew that.

“Excuse me, Julie?” I heard someone call my name and I turned on my heels.

Raising my hand to my forehead, I blocked the sun from my eyes and squinted trying to get a better view of the person with that deep booming voice. But I knew who it came from before he came into focus.



“You are Julie Bristow? This has to be a fucking joke.”

I stared at the woman I had defended last week. But instead of tight cutoff shorts and a barmaid apron, she was wearing heels, a pencil skirt, and a cardigan.

“Oh God.” Her mouth dropped open.

I chuckled. This was fucking sweet.

“What are you doing here?” she hissed, tugging me away from the group of children near her.

“Reporting for volunteer service. You are my sentence.” I felt a primal urge kick in. Something from last week was unearthed when I laid eyes on this angel-turned-devil again.

“I don’t get it. What are you talking about?”

“The judge today assigned me to the community center. Something about helping a bunch of fucking kids.”

I saw the fury in her eyes. “Don’t you dare say that here.” She moved me farther from the group. “You aren’t going to march in here and start dropping f-bombs around my kids.”

“Then why don’t you sign off on this damn piece of paper and I’ll be out of here?”

I lifted my arm and extended the court order I had received only a few hours ago. The paper was crumpled and folded four times. I had almost shredded it in front of the judge, but my attorney stopped me. Savannah was right behind me too. She would have never forgiven me if I did that in the courtroom.

“I don’t need to read it.” She folded her arms across her chest. It was hard to believe the woman I had taken in the back room was living in the same skin as the uptight teacher in front of me.

“Guys! Guys! It’s Kane Hawkins.”

We were instantly surrounded up to our waists by at least fifteen boys. Damn it.

Julie’s eyes landed on mine.

“Could I maybe have an autograph or something?” One of the smaller ones weaseled his way to the front of the pack.

“Not right now, kid. Get lost. I’m in the middle of something.”

Julie gasped. “Hunter, it’s ok. Mr. Hawkins and I were just working on something.” She lowered herself to meet his eye level. “I didn’t know you knew who he was.”

The shaggy-haired boy nodded. “I do. I watch all his games.”

“Oh.” She bit her lip. “Ok. Let me talk to him about some things. You and the other boys go back to club.” She shooed them away and set her gaze on me.

“Follow me, now,” she demanded.

“Hell,” I muttered.

I didn’t take orders from women. And not women I had come close to fucking the way I wanted. I wasn’t done with Julie. Seeing her again was screwing with my head, not to mention my dick.

I thought the cutoffs were hot, but nothing compared to how her ass poured into that tight skirt.

I followed her across the field and inside. It smelled like school. It didn’t bring back the best memories. Her heels clacked along the hallway. She was pissed.

We entered a classroom and she slammed the door behind me.

“How dare you?” she growled at me. Her voice was low and dangerous. “Do you know how many words that little boy speaks in one day?” She took a step closer to me. She wasn’t intimidated by the fact I was well over a foot taller than her. “Less than ten, and most of them are the word no. No I don’t want anything to eat.” She jabbed her finger into my rock solid chest. “No I don’t want anything to drink.” Again. “No I don’t need anything.” And again.

I took a step backward as she advanced, bumping into the side of the desk. “And yet when he saw you, his eyes lit up like it was Christmas morning and you were the best present he had ever been offered, and then you decided to be a dick.

“You were a complete and total ass to him and I will be damned if I let you around him or any other children here. Consider your community service terminated!” she screamed.
