Hi everyone! Welcome to Tuesday Tales!
This week’s word prompt is “fall”. We are taking a tiny break from Ezekiel Hallow (he’ll be back, I promise!) to stop by Vegas to meet up with some MMA fighters. You might know one of them... 😉
**Warning - There is adult situations and adult language.**

“It’d be better if you were here, but it’s good. I want to introduce you to a few people.” Reese stood and angled the phone towards Jed. “This is Jed Donati.”
Jed waved at the screen. “Hi, Lily. Nice to meet you. I’ve heard a lot about you.”
Casey missed her voice over the noise in the bar. Nic pulled out a chair for both him and Casey then waved the waitress over as Reese moved on to Jace with his phone.
The couple barely placed an order when a small screen appeared in their faces.
“And this is Nic Donati, Jed’s little brother and the reason I got called out here. And this is Casey, his...ummm...she goes to our gym.”
Casey didn’t miss the smirk on Lily’s face even on video. “Just goes to the gym, huh?”
“I’m being politically correct, baby,” Reese replied.
“It’s nice to meet you,” Casey greeted.
“Reese has told me a lot about you,” Nic followed.
“Reese has told me a lot about you too, Nic,” Lily told him.
“Oh, that’s not good.”
“Some has been bad. Most has been good. Will you both be in Chicago?
Nic’s grin lit up his face. “I definitely will.”
He glanced at Casey. For a moment she looked at him stunned. She wasn’t sure if she’d be here in the morning. Despite what Jed asked, she really couldn’t stay. Staying would get him killed. She never thought about his fight in Chicago. Then she laid her head on his shoulder. “Me too. Can’t wait to meet you there.”
Reese plucked it away from the couple and shuffled to his chair. “So, how is Ivy? I miss her so much.”
Again the conversation with Lily was lost among the ruckus in the bar. She felt him stiffen against her like he thought she’d pull away. She hugged his arm to her as she snuggled closer to him.
“Reese is so excited to talk to her. Look at the joy on his face to just see her. I wish someone would fall in love with me like that,” she confessed with a heavy sigh.
He brushed a lock of hair from her forehead. She gazed up into his eyes as she shivered at his touch. “I already did.”
She gazed up at him. Cupping his cheek in her hand, she pulled him to her for a long, warm kiss.
