White Knight by Staci Stallings

Worse, he never so much as considered the lives that might be lost under his watch.

“Call me,” Lisa said as Eve turned and started for the cars, but ten steps down the sidewalk she realized that A.J. wasn’t with her. In annoyance she turned just in time to see him shake Jeff’s hand and nod. On her heel she turned and stomped to her car. She wasn’t a baby. She had managed to make it through 29 whole years without Jeff’s constant protective gaze following her every move. How she had ever managed, she was sure he couldn’t quite tell.
Just then she heard the tennis shoes on the concrete behind her, and in the next heartbeat A.J. jogged up beside her.
“I’ve got ten cents that says you drive better than he does,” A.J. said.
“Ten cents? Boy, you have a lot of confidence in me.”
“Okay, make it 20, but that’s my final offer.”
She glanced at him skeptically.
“Hey,” he said, his tone serious, “I have to eat this week you know.”
Eve shook her head and laughed, and as mad as she was at the whole situation, for some reason she just couldn’t be mad with him at her side. “Okay, twenty cents it is.” Without question he followed her across the street and to her car, and then it was time to say good-bye. Gratefulness poured through her as she glanced at him. “I had fun tonight.”
He shrugged. “It was a party. You were supposed to have fun.”
“Well, it was extra fun.”
That apple rounded across the top of his cheek. “I thought so too.”
For a moment she stood, not really wanting to leave.
“Take care driving home,” he said and backed away from her. At the door to the little brown Honda Civic across the street he stopped. “And don’t lose me either.”
“Try to keep up.”
