*A/N: Hey everyone! Sydney's story finally YAY! This is the first story I am using characters from a previous story! Hope you enjoy this because I know I am gonna enjoy writing this! Thanks for reading my pass story! Well, read on my Lovelies!*
"SYDNEY LOOK OUT!" My friend Holly Rhodes yelled. I scooted out of the way and watched the flying drunk hit the ground behind the bar. I looked at him and he smiled at me.
"Are you an angel that came from heaven?" The
man asked and I rolled my eyes.
"Frank, get your ass out of here before your
wife finds ya!" I said and I hollered for the bouncer and he
ushered him out. I leaned against the bar and the culprit of
Frank's demise is Jack, another regular at my bar. I knew moving
to Sturgis, South Dakota, biker heaven, that I will run into so
many drunk bikers it will drive me nuts. Well, I am not nuts,
yet. My mom, Ashleigh, wants me to come back to Minneapolis, but
I have no use there anymore. My childhood friends, Cynthia and RJ
Quinn moved out as soon as we graduated. I am now twenty-two and
I am the night manager/bartender at a Sturgis bar known as
Flames. Everyone has heard of that "Full Throttle" bar, well we
are a good bar as well. If Full Throttle is full, they come
"So, the Sturgis rally is in two weeks, your
first one, are you ready?" Holly asked me. She has this gorgeous
long brunette hair and dark eyes. She is twenty-six years old and
she is also my roommate.
"Yeah, ready as can be. I need to get with the
day manager and owner to see if we got a band," I said pouring a
draft beer for someone.
"He mentioned Poison or Motley Crue coming in,
that would be so awesome. Full Throttle mentioned something about
Jackyl coming in again."
"I thought that was their band last year, well
the singer is the owners brother."
"Jesse Lee is fucking hot!" I laughed and more
local bikers came in and I gave them their beer. After a while,
it got boring and I sat around and Holly and I went outside for a
break. I don't smoke, but Holly has been wanting one for the past
"You've been in Sturgis for what, a year?"
"Yeah, I came in right after last years
rally," I said. I messed with my shorts and my tank top is rolled
up from the sweat. The air conditioner works but with the drunk
sweaty men, it makes the place hot.
"You need to find yourself a man, Sydney,"
Holly said and I laughed.
"I am so shy around men, I about pass out when
they just say hi to me. What about you, you need a man as well!"
I said and she huffed.
"After my failed marriage with Greg, I don't
want anything to do with men!" She threw her cigarette in the
bucket and we went inside. The chef gave us a chili dog and some
fries. When our shift ended at eleven, we went home and I went
straight to my bedroom and called home. My dad answered and I
smiled. My dad, Drake, is a very good looking man but had a
twisted mind. I mean, he kidnapped my mom so he can have her. I
still question to this day why couldn't he just ask her on a
date? "Hey daddy," I said and I can hear his
"Sydney baby, how was work tonight?" He asked
"Good except for almost being knocked over by
a flying drunk."
"Life of a bartender, but I know you love
"I love the public."
"Be a nurse baby doll, you we're thinking
about going to RN school."
"But I didn't make high enough on the SAT to
even go to University of Minnesota. Cynthia went to school all
the way on the East Coast…"
"Matter of speaking, Ricky called and said
that Cynthia got a journalist job here in Minneapolis and her and
her boyfriend is moving here."
"Cyn's got a man?" I began to laugh. Cynthia
is a lot shier than me. If she can get a man, why can't I? I melt
every time a good looking man even says hey to
"Yeah, some dude name Josh Richardson. He is
from London and they been together for a year and a half," Dad
said and I sighed.
"Have they heard from RJ?" RJ and Cynthia
Quinn are my childhood friends. They are actually about four
hours or so older than me. Cynthia went to New York to go to
Journalism school and RJ just vanished into thin air. He rarely
calls and every time he does call his mom and dad, he is in
different places in the United States.
"Last time they heard from him, he is heading
to Sturgis for that rally. You might see him," Dad
"Well, he will get a major whooping when I see
him for deserting us. Can I talk to mama?" I asked and I heard
him hand the phone to my mom.
"Hey baby girl, how's the bartender life?" Mom
"Very good, how is Jeff?" I asked
"Jeff is going good. He has not had a lung
infection in a few years. The doctors thinks he grew out of that
stage. He is sixteen, so he should be grown out of
"I just remember him being so sick all the
time because he was born early. I am glad he is doing
"He is just small for his age. He barely has
any muscle mass, but he signed up for weight training when he
applied for his Junior classes. God, I am getting
"You're forty-two mom! You are not old! Daddy
is forty-eight and he looks like he is in his
"Thanks honey, but I have to get off here,
Drake has something planned for tonight!" I laughed and said I
loved her and bye. Holly came in with two Strawberry Daiquiris in
her hands and she sat down on my bed. We drank and we talked like
usual and Holly told me about her ex, Greg. They we're married
for five years until she finally realized that Greg has been
cheating on her the whole time. She has been divorced for two
years now and she has not been happier than right now. "I mean, I
am a bartender at one of the hottest bars in Sturgis, have
wonderful friends, I don't need a man!" Holly said and I
"I wanted a man once, but it would never have
worked out," I said and sighed again.
"A high school crush?"
"You can say that, he was everything I dreamed
of, but he never seen me the way I seen him." Holly finished her
drink and I finished mine. We decided to go to bed early, so we
can have a early start tomorrow.
Next day at work, it is busier than normal.
The crowd is getting bigger due to the rally coming up. I went to
the mirror and put my wavy blonde hair in a simple bun and fixed
the eyeliner around my brown eyes. Someone already has the
jukebox going and it is very loud. Holly already got hit on by a
drunk man, which we had to call our bouncer. While he was dealing
with him, two more men got in a fight. "We have to do something,
Sydney, we need another bouncer!" Holly said.
"I know and when the rally starts, it's gonna
be fucking hell!" I said and some more people, including a young
guy, came to the bar. I went the young guy and smiled. "What is
your poison dear?" I asked and he looked at me. I gasped and
cover my mouth. No way, it is not him!
"Well hello Sydney, I haven't seen you in
what, two years!" RJ said and I smiled.
"Hey RJ, yeah its been two years!" I said then he stood up and opened his arms. I walked over and hugged him tightly. He looked at me and he smiled even wider. Fuck yeah, my night just got better!
