Chapter 19 Kyrianna Thomas
I swear, Eric, Reba, Narvel and I are the horniest people on the fucking planet. It was such an emotion roller-coaster to be in the studio to record Lightning. It’s a very powerful song and the most profound I’ve ever written. It mostly means a lot to me because it’s my Daddy’s life. He was an amazing man and I often blame myself for his death. And then, after the recording we all ended up fucking. Like that just doesn’t happen. But once we get started there’s no end. By that time, I didn’t even care what Shelby thought. He’ll just have to get over it. I love the boy but he freaked right out when I told him I had sex with his Dad. Oh, I guess that does sound pretty bad. But I know Shelby loves me anyway. And Eric, well that man is willing to fuck anyone, anywhere. If he’s horny, he’ll fuck. I really love that about him. I was starting to realize that with my luck, Eric will catch me and Shelby together or vice versa. And I know Reba told me this a million times, but I just didn’t know how to tell them. I tried Eric first, because he’s so easygoing I figured he’d be fine with it. We were sitting on the gate of his truck outside his apartment building. We were in the back lane.
“Honey?” I ask just looking at my long legs.
“Yes Beautiful?” Eric asks looking over at me.
“I have to tell you something and it’s really important.” I begin forcing myself to look at him.
“What is it?” He asks. He’s so into everything I say.
“You know Shelby right?” I ask raising my eyebrows and rubbing the back of my neck.
“Yeah, Reba n’ Narvel’s kid, why?”
“Uh, I’m kinda…you know….seeing him too. Like this.” I confess. It sounded a lot better in my head.
“So you’re fuckin’ him and me?” Eric asks looking at me emotionlessly.
“Yeah, and I love both of you. So I can’t just let one of you go. Because I’m madly in love with both of you.” I explain resting my hand on his leg.
“What if you want to get married?” he asks. “Or if I wanna get married?”
“Well, I don’t think we’ll be getting married anytime soon. I mean, I’m not even legal yet.” I say a little ashamed of myself.
“But Kyrianna, I love you that much.” He says passionately.
“Ricky, I love you that much too, but I also love Shelby that much too. Plus, you just ended a marriage. I mean, are you really ready for that commitment again?” I say encouragingly.
“Well, I’m not really the kind to be married, but it’s a nice thing to have a ring on ma finger ya know?” Eric says looking away from me.
“Yeah.” I reply. “Hey, maybe we can just get like promise rings or something? I’ll talk Shelby into it too. And I’ll wear both of your rings because you are the one’s I hold in my heart.” I suggest going really close to Eric. He wraps his arm around my waist and lays me down in his truck bed. He kisses my lips as we lay down gently.
“That’s a great idea beautiful. Go tell Shelby and I’ll get you a ring.” Eric says rubbing his nose against my freckled nose.
“Okay. Thank you so much for understanding Eric.” I say with a smile.
“Why wouldn’t I be okay with it? I’ll always love you.” Eric says running the back of his hand along my cheek. I smile flattered.
“I’ll always love you too Kenneth Eric Church.” I say scrunching my nose.
“Don’t call me that.” He moans covering his face. I laugh and kiss the tip of his nose that was sticking out in between his hands.
“I’ll see ya later.” I say getting of the tailgate.
“I love you Kyrianna!” He exclaims sitting up.
“I love you too Eric!” I shout back as I walk away.
I had one down and one more to go. I was a little nervous because I knew this one would be harder than it was with Eric.
I go through the door of Reba and Narvel’s place. Shelby’s waiting for me.
“I have a race tomorrow.” He blurts.
“I know. You left your schedule on the counter the other day.” I reply taking my sweater off.
“But you know what tomorrow is?” He asks.
“Uh, Thursday I think.” I say bringing my red eyebrows together.
“No, it’s our 1 month anniversary tomorrow.” He exclaims.
“Oh, you’re going by the month, why don’t you just go by the year like normal people Shelby.” I say sarcastically.
“Well, I wanna remember the date because by the time a year comes around I’ll have forgotten.” He says in the same tone.
“I already forgot.” I say rolling my eyes. He laughs. “Shelby sweetie, I have something really important to tell you.” I begin.
“Please don’t tell me you’re pregnant.”
“Okay, then go on.”
“You know Eric Church?” It was a pretty obvious question.
“Of course I do! He’s famous Kyrs.” Shelby replies.
“Well, you know how we’re together?” I ask another obvious question.
“No, that’s not why I wanted to celebrate our 1 month anniversary.” He says sarcastically.
“Shelby this is serious!” I exclaim feeling hurt.
“Okay, what about that?” he asks trying to sound loving again.
“I’m seeing him.” I confess refusing to look at his millions of adorable freckles.
“You’re what!?” He exclaims the way Reba does. “You’re fucking him aren’t you? Is there anyone you haven’t slept with Kyrianna?!”
“Kyrianna this is serious.” He shouts.
“Shelby, listen to me. You have to understand this. I’m in love with both of you. Okay, I don’t love you more and I don’t love Eric more. I’m madly in love with both of you.” I explain resting my hands on his shoulders.
“Is that who you’re doing when I’m gone?” he asks calming down a little.
“Yeah, and sometimes when you’re here.” I reply feeling ashamed of myself. “But Shelby, Eric said he’ll get me a promise ring if you do too. So that you guys both agree to share me. And that I’ll always love both of you with all my heart.”
Shelby’s silent for a long time. He was thinking really hard. I could almost hear the gears grinding.
“Alright, it’s not like Eric’s a bad guy or anything.” Shelby says looking at me with his adorable big brown eyes.
“So, you’re okay with it?” I ask.
“Of course, I mean, it’s not like we’re not having sex or anything. Then I’d be concerned.” He smiles. I laugh and wrap my arms around him. I kiss his lips.
“I love you so much Shelby Blackstock.” I say while on his shoulder.
“I love you too Kyrianna Thomas.” He replies. A huge weight had been lifted off of my shoulders. No more worrying I’d get caught.
“I’ll get you a ring when I get back from my race okay.” He says sweetly.
“There’s no rush Shelby.” I say giving him a loving look.
“Well, I wanna get it before Eric.” He says with a foolish smile.
“Shelby.” I moan looking away from him.
“I’m just kidding, c’mon, let’s go upstairs my beautiful.” He says taking me upstairs. We made the best love I’d ever made to that boy.
