I threw my bags down onto the dusty gym floor
and stared at all the men working out and hearing them grunt and
egging each other on to push above their limits.
"Reggie, do I really have to do this?" I said
and she rolled her eyes. She pushed against my sore arm, the arm
I try using to defend myself from an ex-boyfriend of
"Oh Tawny, you need to learn how to fight.
Gerry's Gym is known to train some of the best fighters, some of
them fight professionally!" Regina, my best friend, said and I
sighed. I grabbed my workout bag and followed Reggie to the
manager's office and a man with gray hair is turned away from us
and talking to the phone very angrily.
"I don't give a fuck why you cannot come to
work, but you need to get here!" The man said and the man on the
other side of the phone is yelling. "Well, fuck you too!" the man
slammed the phone down and he finally turned around and he looked
"Hello Gerry, I'm Regina Camp, the girl that
called you," Regina said and the man smiled.
"You the girls that want to learn to defend
yourselves? You came to the right place! I got two men, well one
man right now, that can start y'all today!" Gerry said and Reggie
smiled. We went to the locker room, which is cleaner than the gym
itself, and I put my gym clothes on. I went to the mirror and put
my sandy blonde hair in a pony tail and Reggie is behind me,
putting her black hair in a pony as well.
"You will thank me later for this," Reggie said
and I sighed. We walked outside and Gerry pointed to a man,
probably in his mid twenties, in the boxing ring.
"Carson, I got you two more trainees!" Gerry
said and Carson looked down at us, but mainly at me. He has
these, gray eyes, that I have never seen in my life. He has
stubble that is desirable and he began to smile.
"So, you ladies want to learn to fight that
doesn't involve slapping?" Carson said and I
"I guess you can say that," I said and Reggie
rolled her eyes.
"I'll wait on the other dude to come, you can
take Carson," Reggie said and I shrugged my shoulders and walked
over to Carson. He threw some boxing gloves at me and I just
looked at them.
"Do you want to learn how to fight bare
handed?" Carson asked me. I shook my hand and put the gloves on
and got on the ring and faced him. He walked around my body like
he is inspecting me and when he faced me again, he laughed. "You
have not a single piece of muscle on your body, we better began
on the weights!" Carson said and he hopped off and I followed
him. He took me to the bench and put some weights on the barbell.
I looked and I seen that he put fifty pounds on it.
"Starting me off small?" I said and he
"I don't want you to get too sore on me on the
first day!" Carson said and I lay down on the bench and grabbed
the weights. "I am your spotter and if you have any trouble, I
will help you, okay?" he said and I just nodded my head. I pulled
the weights down to my chest and even though fifty pounds sounds
puny, it is quite heavy!
"So, what is your name?" Carson said and I
grunted when I lifted the weights off of me.
"Tawny…Dawson," I said and he
"Well I am Carson Reynolds," he said and I just
smiled and I done my weight training exercises for another
fifteen minutes and he finally let me quit and have a break. I
walked outside to the warm, South Carolina air and chugged down
my water and Reggie joined me.
"Wow, that hottie Carson gave you quite a work
out!" She said and I just looked at her. She barely broke a sweat
since she was on the treadmill on a low speed.
"Yeah he did, but why are you not working out?"
I asked her and she grabbed the water out of my hand and looked
"Well, because we are here for you. You could
not defend yourself when Chris beat you. For one, I am glad you
put a restraining order out on him. Still, you need to learn how
to fight if Chris comes after you again," Reggie said and I
agreed. I am twenty years old and I dated a jerk name Chris since
I was fifteen years old. He took my virginity at sixteen, and he
began to be abusive after graduation. I went to him and told him
that I was accepted to Clemson University and he slapped me and
told me that I am not going to college. After that day, my life
was a living hell. It was a living hell for two straight years.
Three months ago, I had enough of his shit and dumped his ass,
thinking that it will quit. No, it did not quit. Three days ago,
he found me at the café I work at and almost beat me to death in
the back of the building. I used my arm as a shield so he won't
beat my face in. Reggie found me after he ran off and took me to
the hospital. I had no major injuries except for bad bruises and
cuts. I went to the court house and put a restraining order on
him. I am hoping that it will stop the madness.
"You know I am a sucker for love stories,"
Reggie said and I laughed.
"Especially the ones with sex in them!" I said
and she pushed me.
"I was just thinking that we will find
ourselves a man that will treat us like equals. Your man won't
beat you everyday and treat you like a fucking
"Like that will ever happen. Fairy tales never
happen in real life." Carson came out and lit a cigarette and I
looked down his arms and seen the tribal tattoos wrap around his
forearms and wrists. I look down and I have a cute flower design
with my name tattooed on my wrist.
"Well, are you up for some more weight
exercises? I want you to have some muscle before you learn to
fight," Carson said. I watched the small stream of cigarette
smoke leave his sexy puffy lips and I felt my heart race. Even
though Chris forced me into sex, I haven't had sex in three
months. I am aching for someone to touch me. Carson's hands are
big, but not scary big and he has muscles to keep me safe and
wrap around me during sex. I shook my head and he gave me a
"Um, yeah, that sounds good. I probably can't
punch a fly right now," I said and he laughed. A man around the
same age as Carson came up with bags in his hands and he looked
down at us. He is also quite good looking, but he is not as
muscular as Carson and he seems like he has an attitude
"Are these the women that is starting out
today?" he asked Carson.
"Yeah, I got Tawny and you got her friend…"
Carson looked at Reggie and she cleared her throat and threw her
hand at the man.
"Regina Camp, you are my trainer," Reggie said
and the guy told her to follow him. When the doors closed, Carson
looked at me and he knew I wanted to know what is going
"That is Bailey, my buddy since childhood. He
wanted the day off, but since y'all came today, he cannot take
the day off till tomorrow. He would've just went to the strip
club in Spartanburg anyways," Carson said and I grimace. Chris
went there often because I was too sore from sex the night before
to have sex again. I hate even hearing the word strip club.
After his cigarette, he took me to the treadmill and set it at a
speed that is not that fast for me. Reggie and Bailey is at the
same weight set that I was just on and she is at seventy-five
pounds. She has more muscle than me, she was into the athletics
in high school. I was in the yearbook club and I wanted to be a
journalist, but Chris…
"Tawny, watch out!" Carson yelled and that's
when I knew I went backwards and I hit the ground hard on my ass.
I need to stop thinking!
"Sorry, my mind wandered off a bit," I said and
he laughed. He helped me up and Reggie ran over to me and she is
"Never fails to fall off the treadmill the
first time," Reggie said and Bailey is finally
"I think she needs to take the rest of the day
off," Carson said and I agreed and went to the locker room. I
went to the showers and I jerked my clothes off and I took a nice
warm shower. I smelled so bad and I didn't want to go back to my
apartment smelling like dirty socks. I walked out of the locker
room after I got dressed in my pedestrian clothes and I seen that
Carson is also in normal clothes instead of those sexy tight gym
"Hey Tawny, I was just wondering if you would
like to go to lunch with me? Regina said she is not done yet,"
Carson said and I just shook my head. Well, my sucky ass day went
to a decent one, I am going to eat lunch with a sexy
