Teaser Tuesdays: Bodyguard

teaser tuesday

So we already know Bo has something buried deep in his past, Olivia wants her life back, what happens when they meet?

*****

Olivia stared at him. He was a good looking man. Clearly he spent a lot of time at the gym based on his well chiseled figure.

“Excuse me?” His deep brown eyes look perplex.

“I said that you are going to have to stop calling me ma’am if we are going to spend the next little while together.”

“Okay Miss Woods-” he started again before she cut him off.

“Please call me Olivia. She held up her good hand wincing slightly as she shifted causing a sharp pain in her bad shoulder.

“Olivia,” he repeated and stood there looking uncomfortable.

“Well have a seat, you look absolutely ridiculous standing there looking like that.”

He dutifully sat in the chair that the detective had been sitting in a short while before.

“So,” she said to him after a moment, “are we just going to sit here in silence or do you have things you need to talk to me about?”

“Yes, I’m sorry I,-

“I get it. From what I’ve learned in the last 10 minutes being someone’s bodyguard isn’t exactly what you signed up to do.”

He looked at her confused again.

“Good ears. I could hear you getting through the good old boys out there.”

He smiled.

“Good you are human.” She smiled back.

“Yes. We should discuss the plan for when you are discharged from the hospital.”

She nodded and let out a sigh. She was hoping that whatever was going on was over and dealt with before the doctor thought about releasing her.

She wanted to get back to work.

“Ma’am?” His smooth voice cut through her thoughts.

“Olivia.” She said absently trying to think about what she needed to get done once she got herself back to the office. Her mind was not on whatever it was he was talking to her about.

“Did you hear what I said?”

“No, I’m sorry, what did you say your name was again?”

“Bo Jackson, Ma– Olivia.”

“Bo. Good.” She would have to try to remember that.

“Please don’t say anything about being related to the football player.” His face was serious but she could see a small twinkle in his eye.

Maybe this wouldn’t be so bad, she thought.
