STORM (noun)—a turbulent disturbance; a disruption or dispute.
Jake Wethers’s life is perfect. He’s married to the woman he’s always loved, and they have three beautiful children. The Mighty Storm is still going strong, and his record label is thriving.
Jake has everything—a life he thought he would never have and one that he didn’t think he deserved.
Not so long ago, Jake’s life wasn’t perfect. The unexpected and untimely death of his best friend, Jonny Creed, sent an already out-of-control Jake spiraling down further.
Drug addiction. Alcohol. Women.
Jake was in the fast lane to following Jonny to the grave until Tru Bennett walked back into his life and changed everything.
But now, the past that Jake left behind has come back to find him. And what the past brings with it is going to be one of the biggest challenges he has ever faced.
I’m just mid piss when I hear my baby
girl’s sleepy voice from behind me, “Dada, why I not have a peenis?”
Shifting to the side so that I’m covering
myself from Belle’s view, I glance over my shoulder, a chuckle escaping me.
“’Cause you’re a girl, Beauty.”
“But I wanna be a boy, like you, JJ,
and Billy.” She juts her lips out, pouting. “I wanna peenis!”
She’s standing there, demanding a
penis, in her Disney princess pajamas, with her arms folded across her chest,
her foot tapping.
she is exactly like her mother. Not
that Tru ever wanted a cock—well, aside from mine inside her, of course.
But Belle has Tru’s steely
determination, and she looks exactly like her mother, which means trouble for
me when she’s older.
But like I know how to handle my
wife’s temperament, I know how to handle Belle.
“Okay, Beauty, how about this?” I
say in a pacifying tone, holding in my laughter. I tuck myself back into my
pajama pants and go to wash my hands. “Why don’t you ask Santa for a penis for
Christmas?” The second that I’ve said it, I know that it sounds all kinds of
wrong. It’s so wrong that I wish to God I could take it back.
“Santa, give me a peenis!” Belle
starts squealing, jumping around and clapping her hands.
“Fuck. Shit! No!” I panic as soon as
the words leave my mouth, knowing exactly what Belle is like. A goddamn parrot
is what she’s like.
“Fuck! Shit! Santa, peenis!” Belle
starts to mimic, hands still clapping together.
Tru is going to kill me. Kill me dead.
“Christ.” I cover my face with my
hands. “Belle, no.”
I reach down and pick her up. She
wraps her little chubby legs around my hips, her hands clutching at my
“Don’t say those words. Bad words.”
I touch my fingertip to her nose, staring into her big brown eyes—Tru’s
“Bad words,” I reiterate, giving her
a serious look. “We do not repeat those words. Ever. And especially not in
front of Mommy. Okay?”
“So, Santa gimme peenis if I say no
“Santa! Peenis!” She giggles.
“Breakfast, Belle!” I exclaim. “You
want some Frozen cereal?” I say to distract her.
That fucking annoying Disney film is
her favorite, and she will only eat that particular brand of cereal.
Then, she launches into the chorus
of “Let It Go” as I carry her out of the bathroom, heading downstairs to the
kitchen where my tribe should be.
